    Just perfect, on the edge of the North York Moors, within easy access to Scarborough ,Whitby and surrounding areas, an abundance of amazing scenery and places to visit. The cottage overlooks the Moors and has amazing views of the coast towards Scarborough, Flamborough. And is very spacious and very well equipped and finished to a high standard the photographs do not do it justice. James is great guy and perfect host, We had an amazing week and were sorry to leave, we will definitely be returning.
