  • "Really quite a few defects, garden is much to be desired, door unable to open in sitting room, no DVDs player as advertised, no finishing touches, :- soft lamps in sitting room or bedrooms, kitchen not enough pots ( bowls , pans , cutlery tray dirty, no ironing board or iron and having discovered no wardrobes or chest of drawers upstairs an iron was much needed as clothes were creased with not being hung up!"

    !! Very poor heating system, wifi slow and intermittent, sticky front door lock, no shelves in bathroom or shower room to put toiletries on, broken toilet roll holder, vacuum not working ..... I could go on, all in all disappointing , tlc urgently required

  • "Cottage is so perfect when bringing your dogs ."

    . . Flag stone floors mean no worrying about dirty paws, especially on cold & wet days! Beds are very comfortable & the kitchen is well stocked. Relieved there was a dish washer as water was only warm most of the time. Loved the cottage but not having access to heating controls meant it was chilly when in the cottage during the day. Wet room was ideal but again lack of hot water could be an issue if more than 2-3 people

  • "The cottage is advertised as having wi fi but it didn’t work."

    Large groups might find the avaiablity of hot water to be an issue particularly if the next door cottage is also occupied....something to do with the biomass boiler which was explained to us on checking in. A welcome pack with basic essentials would be a positive as there are no shops near by. Frying pans could do with replacing! All in all very spacious and comfortable place to stay in the North Yorkshire countryside.

  • "The description of the cottage was obviously done when the cottage was refurbished."

    When arriving the outside looked scruffy. The inside had lovely furniture.. but it was soon clear that the lack of attention to detail and ongoing maintenance let this cottage down. No 'garden' as listed just an overgrown mound with broken stuff in one corner...

  • "Cottage very open plan and not conducive for 4 adult guests, with only 2 of the guests being in a relationship, ideal for a family with small children."

    Obviously well used as furniture, crockery etc quite tired. Advised to use bottled water, this can get a bit expensive. Dudley Arms pub in village really good. Bit further away is the Sutton Arms, best meal ever, in fact went twice.

  • "Very helpful & friendly hosts."

    There was an issue with the WiFi which wasn't working properly, but I was happy that the kids didn't have too much WiFi! The property was overall excellent.

Howe Hill Farm Cottages

Great Ayton 4.5 miles. Situated just over a mile from the small hamlet of Ingleby Greenhow amidst stunning countryside, these two semi-detached cottages have been sympathetically converted from old stone barns. Offering comfortable accommodation, these cottages are ideal for families and friends to get together and enjoy the spectacular surrounding scenery, but be within driving distance of the pretty market towns of Stokesley and Great Ayton. Bookable together to sleep 10, and with flexible accommodation including zip/link beds, sofa beds and ground floor bedrooms and wet rooms, these cottages make a fantastic base for a variety of parties. Great care has been taken to provide very comfortable holiday homes, boasting modern facilities throughout, including underfloor heating, granite worktops and double-ended baths. With a spacious feel throughout, both have flagged floors on the ground floor, and are traditionally furnished to a high standard. Outside are private front and rear patio gardens, a lovely spot to sit and relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the panoramic views and beautiful sunsets. Guests are invited to explore the smallholding’s 35 acres, including a shared picnic area overlooking Roseberry Topping. The surrounding countryside is a walker’s and cyclist’s paradise, with a network of public footpaths, bridleways and trails, including the Coast to Coast and Cleveland Way long distance trails. The small village of Ingleby Greenhow lies just over a mile away and offers a local inn serving good food, and a butcher’s that also provides bread and milk, whilst Stokesley and Great Ayton are both picturesque towns with a good range of independent shops, pubs and cafés. Why not visit nearby affluent Yarm, with its popular, trendy restaurants and bars? A little further afield lies Northallerton with its weekly market and excellent amenities. An easy drive brings you to the coastal towns of Whitby and Saltburn, both well worth visiting with their long, sandy beaches and historic harbours. Two North Yorkshire cottages in a beautiful location.

About the location


Stokesley 3 miles; Guisborough 7 miles; Middlesbrough 8 miles.

The attractive village of Great Ayton lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, at the foot of the Cleveland Hills. Great Ayton is famous for being the boyhood home of Captain Cook, and is also mentioned in the Domesday Book. The village consists of a mixture of pretty stone cottages and some new development housing. Great Ayton has two village greens, with a river running alongside, making it a popular picnic spot in the summer months. To the north of the village, the view is dominated by Roseberry Topping, a 330-metre hill. In the village are a good range of shops and inns, which, together with restaurants and cafes, cater well for holidaymakers. There is also the old school, now converted into the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum. Around the village are several interesting walks, and Great Ayton makes a great base for walkers wishing to explore the stunning countryside. A good base for market towns, the lovely countryside and, just a short drive, the East Coast.
