  • "We enjoyed our stay at Week's very much."

    I chose this cottage because it is next to the Cinder track as I wanted to cycle it from Scarborough to Whitby. It is perfectly placed for that purpose and to also enjoy the peace and quiet. I would definitely recommend this place.

  • "A window in the lounge / dining area would have been nice, Having to move the table and chairs to use them, No egg cups, No toilet brush so an extra waste of water in frequent washing,/flushing , Probably best suited to young couple."

    Essential to have own transport,we did so no problem,

    Particularly liked the provision of wood for the fire.

  • "Welcoming hosts, helpful but not at all overbearing."

    Property will benefit with the outdoor space the owners are in the process of completing at present. This Property is ideally situated to explore the Yorkshire coast, either by car or if you're up to it? By foot as the coastal walk is easily accessible from here. We look forward to returning

  • "Only outside area to sit was the car park."

    the freezer part of the fridge was so iced up unable to close door on freezer box so therefore useless. no where to dry hair with mirror in bedroom. no where to hang coats fortunately it was dry.

    Many thanks for your feedback. It is a shame that you did not contact us during your stay as our phone number is in the property for any guest to call if they have an issue during their stay. As we live next door, we could have resolved the issue that you had with the freezer straight away. You will see from the photos and description there is no garden advertised, however we are currently creating one which will be added shortly. It is a compact property but there is a large mirror in the hall with a socket next to it to dry your hair and there are coat hangers on the back of the door. Thank you again for your feedback.

  • "Nice cottage, friendly and helpful owners."

    No views from inside the cottage, but it is very well located for a beautiful section of the coast path and the Scarborough to Whitby cycle path runs just past the end of the farm, so plan to spend your time outside!

The property

Burniston 4.4 miles.

Set amongst the luscious landscapes of the North Moors National Park, in the sleepy village of Staintondale, you will find the idyllic ground-floor dwelling, Wren.

Just a stone's throw away from the sweeping coastline, this attractive accommodation provides the ultimate romantic retreat for a couple seeking an action-packed adventure in North Yorkshire.

Be welcomed into this quaint and quirky cottage with low beams and a charming open-plan living space featuring a well-equipped white gloss kitchen, hosting a contrasting black fridge and a contemporary electrical oven and hob, where you can prepare a delightful dinner for two.

Take a seat at the rustic wooden dining table and pop open a chilled bottle of bubbly, raising a toast to time well-spent with your significant other.

Place a log on the traditional woodburning stove and cosy up on the plush leather sofa, as you lose yourself in a captivating movie on the impressive wall-mounted TV.

Retreat to the homely double bedroom and discover a stylish en-suite shower room boasting a spacious walk-in shower and heated towel rail, where you can indulge in a refreshing rinse following a fun-filled day in the English countryside.

Admire outstanding views of the rolling hillside as you delight in a warm cup of tea in the lovely outdoor seating area before embarking on an awe-inspiring hike along the North York Moors coastline, making your way up to the picturesque village of Robin Hood's Bay for a tour of the National Trust owned The Old Coastguard Station.

Head north to Whitby and discover the imposing Gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey, said to be the inspiration behind Bram Stoker's 18th century novel, Dracula.

Spot magnificent whales on the Whitby Whale Watching tour, or wander the soft white sands of Whitby Beach before stopping by the iconic Whalebone Arch.

Within reaching distance, the seaside resort of Scarborough is home to a grand ancient stronghold known as Scarborough Castle and the manicured lawns of Peasholm Park.

See exotic fish and sea mammals at SEA LIFE Scarborough or step back in time at Rotunda Museum.

Head deep into the North York Moors National Park for a muddy cycle through the North Riding Forest Park or visit the English Heritage site of Wheeldale Roman Road.

For the ultimate escape to North Yorkshire, book a stay at Wren.
