  • "A great property!"

    Lovely and warm too! Loads of space for 3 couples. Clean and close to pub, bakery and the wedding we were attending at Danby Castle The house is super well equipped with lots of kitchen utensils and crockery. Great to have an outside tap to hose the dog down after a walk in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. Locals in the pub were very friendly too! Would book again when next in the area.

  • "The house was perfect, clean and had everything you could want for ."

    if the owners were wanting to add extra perfection in the future i would recommend a TV in the master bedroom, and also to put a downstairs toilet in the back room where the washing machine is then the house would be beyond prefect. we had a loverly stay and would like to say thank you jean keith and bella the dog.

  • "The property could do with some TLC inside as there are a lot of scuff marks on the wall and a number of tears in the wallpaper."

    I tried following the 'boost to heating' instructions for the towel rail as this was never warm/hot and therefore the bathroom was cold every morning - not fun having taken a shower. Came away a bit disappointed to be honest.

  • "The Cottage is lovely, especially the kitchen and the beds are very clean and comfortable ."

    . The only minor issue we had was the fact that the Table and chairs in the back garden were really dirty .. They had obviously not been cleaned for a long time.. We wanted to sit outside cos the weather was nice.. So my husband had to go out with the mop and bucket and clean it up , chairs as well .. I would happily go back to stay there again.. The owner was very helpful and he messaged me before we went to say that he hoped we had a good time and to get in touch if we needed any help ..

  • "7 Dale End was very comfortable and the kitchen was well supplied with essentials."

    Danby is fairly peaceful and has a ‘getaway from it all” feel. We went out in the car everyday and enjoyed going to the coast, Skinningrove, Staiths and Runswick Bay are favourites of ours and so Danby is a good base and makes a nice change. The views from the back windows have nice scenery to the right. I did sit in the garden and read, not as peaceful as you would think but I did get a few quiet reading sessions in the garden. There are a few things I would like to mention but nothing spoiled our stay here and we had some good sleeps in the very comfortable beds. When we arrived at the house there was an overpowering smell of garlic in the doorway and when we went inside the smell was setting off the fire alarm and hurting our ears and making us feel sick so hubby had to cut back the wild garlic that was growing in the doorway, we were both heaving until we got rid of the smell, there is still some growing around the back of the house. Someone kept parking a blue Hyundai outside the gate halfway on the pavement, this was our only entry/exit making us have to lift larger items over the fence to and from our car and this was parked nearly all day everyday. Just a couple of points to mention but we really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend 7 Dale End.

  • "The stay at Dale End was most enjoyable."

    Everything was as advertised and fulfilled every expectation. The location is perfect for walking on and around the moors but also within reach of the coast. Danby is very picturesque and the local bakery is a must! I hope to return later in the year but this time with my wife in tow.

  • "We had a lovely stay in Danby."

    The house was brilliantly prepared for us, we found the guest book really helpful as we weren't sure what to do when we got there. Great recommendations for local things such as the bakery, which we made good use of, and walks (which our dog loved). We used the kitchen most nights because of how well equipped it was, and found the big telly and comfy sofa well needed after an adventure. The house makes a great base because of its distance to places like Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay, although the immediate surrounding area is also beautiful! We will definitely be staying again, and thank you so much for a great week!

  • "Really lovely spacious property with great views and good location."

    Quiet area which was great for a relaxing break. Recommend the bakery which can be seen from the upstairs window. Every facility we needed and more, freezer was very handy. Made use of the wood burner as we went in October and it made the house lovely and warm. The owner was on hand when we had a technical issue with the tv smart hub. Contacted us before we left home too which was a nice touch. I think the addition of a downstairs toilet would be a benefit to larger groups as the property does sleep 6. And for those with mobility issues.

    There was nothing else we could have needed and so many options of places to go or see, nearby or just walking from the house itself. We'll definitely come back if we can

  • "7 Dale End."

    ...Just perfect for us and our 2 dogs. So glad we managed to come a cross this gem. Set in Danby a lovely quiet moorland village with 2 great local pubs ,shop & Bakery close to lots of moorland walks & coastal areas by car. The Cottage is very well presented - clean tidy & warm on arrival.Furnished and decorated nicely throughout a mixture of country with a modern twist. Lovely large well stocked Kitchen /dinning area with plenty of pots, pans etc for those who wish cook has nice wood burner in it too had everything we needed.From the kitchen is access to a good size utility room which also has it own access from outside...this was a massive bonus for us with our 2 dogs...perfect for wet dogs to dry off and store boots and outside gear. The utility also had to dog beds in. Another added bonus was to the side of the property is an outside tap with hose handy for washing down muddy dogs,bikes and boots!!!washing machine, small counter freezer and boiler all in utility room. Living room isn't the biggest but lovely, cosy and comfortable Wood burner and smart TV perfect for winter nights in after a day exploring. 3 bedrooms1 bathroom upstairs. We slept in the master bed was massive and so comfortable and splendid views from the window. All bedrooms nicely presented- as was the bathroom. Fabulous garden to both front & Back of property....we loved it & so did our dogs!! We have a Lab & a J.Russell who were both secure in the garden and it is big enough for them to have a play around in..One of the best gardens compared to other properties we have stayed in pevious. Better than in the pictures!! Outside dinning area & lawn at the back perfect for the summer months. We have really enjoyed our stay at 7 Dale End so much so we plan to come back..the property met our needs and we have felt relaxed and comfortable thru out.Would definitely recommend. A couple of slight gripes but nothing major or enough to put us off returning would be bath towels are not very large would prefer later or take own. No Whisky tumbler / small size glasses .No personal welcome hamper like you get at some cottages...all that said it didn't effect of spoil our stay and not the end of the world!! Finally think it is always nice to have a guest handbook for guest to leave feed back for new guest and thank property owners we always enjoy reading previous guest comments first cottage we been too that hasn't had one!! Only issue we had was locating Guest handbook and property info folder not left in normal places you would expect took ages to find and had to ring owner for Wi-Fi code who was extremely helpful and asked if we we were happy and comfortable with the property...we did eventually we did find folder in a kitchen drawer !!! LOL.

    You are within walking distance of a bakery, shop and 2 pubs both serving excellent food. A short drive away and you are on the coast with several beautiful bays, villages and the town of Whitby. There are numerous walks from the front door and within half an hour you can be at The Moors National Park Centre or alternatively high up on the Moors with spectacular views. The property itself is very comfortable and well equipped.

    Decorated beautifully. In a cosy little village. Only a couple of gripes- would be to have some wardrobes, we were a family of 5 and if we had been staying longer would have really struggled for storage space as had to live out the suitcase. 1 teeny wardrobe is not enough. Also mirrors, only 1 in the whole house a mirror in the bathroom would be very beneficial. Last but not least towels were a little on the small side so glad I took our own. You have a beautiful house, these added extras would make it a whole lot better. Thank you!
