  • "We enjoyed our stay in this clean and comfortable cottage."

    I thought it was well laid out making good use of the space available. Many original features of the barn had been maintained and the owners have got just the right balance of modern and rustic. The cottage is perfectly situated for Whitby, Scarborough or the North York Moors. It was very quiet at night and we slept very well. The only noise issue during the day are the dogs who are kept kennelled opposite the cottage as they do bark a lot and disturb the peace and quiet during the day. Other than that we had no issues. The cottage had everything we needed for a weeks stay. The only things we had to buy were kitchen roll and extra toilet rolls, there is a good local supermarket just 10 minute drive away so this wasn’t a problem. WiFi is provided but not secure and not always reliable with the signal being unavailable for short periods most days we were there. You can pick up 4G in the cottage. Overall we had a great week and I’d definitely recommend this cottage to others for a relaxing week in a lovely part of the country.

    A really nice place in a quiet peaceful setting. Secluded but only a short drive to Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay or Scarborough. Very central. Ben, our host was very helpful when we asked for a travel cot. A really comfortable home from home, Hopefully we will be back.

  • "Stable Cottage is clean, extremely well equipped and very comfortable."

    It has everything you need and more. Outside to the rear is a fairly private garden and lovely views over the fields. The horses, dogs, cats, goat, and sheep were great to watch. Car Parking is available to the front of the property. We had neighbours to both sides, but due to the thick stone walls, and floorplan, never heard them at all. It was very peaceful and out the way enough to be quiet but close enough to easily visit all resorts from Whitby to Bridlington, and very close to the Cinder Path route, and Cleveland Way. Ben and Wendy were the perfect welcoming hosts, usually working around the farm, and easily available if needed, but never intrusive. Stable Cottage is highly recommended, and we will 100% go back there.

Nice , comfy beds, well equipped kitchen and a cosy lounge with a log burner. The cottage owners are nice and friendly and we would certainly stay here again and definitely recommend it to others.

    Owners on hand if needed for advice but not intrusive. Nice peaceful location with viewsome accross the countryside and down to the sea. Nice to see the animals around the place. Though it was very windy during our stay the cottage was warm and we'll presented. Whitby, Scarborough, the North Yorkshire Moors and Robin Hoods Bay were all within easy drives. Very enjoyable and relaxing week with plenty of nice local pubs serving good food. Thanks to Ben and Wendy for all the tips and supplies of wood for the burner, just take plenty of change for the abundance of parking metres in all tourist locations!

  • "Lovely cottage and owners the only issue I have is that the postcode takes you to another farm down a dirt track and you then have to reverse all the way back up."

    It’s a few more yards down the road to what the postcode and directions tell you. Overall the cottage was lovely and clean in a lovely location and ideal 15-20 minutes drive into Whitby :-) cloughton is also not far away and this has some lovely friendly village pubs. Lovely log fire would highly recommend
