  • "A very lovely property in an idyllic location!"

    This must be the only time I've found the property was actually even nicer and more spacious than it seemed from the photographs! It is very clean and comfortable and had everything. Natasha was very friendly and helpful when one small issue came up. Not sure anything could be improved really, I had a delightful and relaxing stay, and would definitely come again.

  • "Lovely, lovely property and location."

    Walks from the door, bluebells outside the window. Tiny issue with missing blind but it is in hand. Patio is crying out for a hot tub (never thought I’d hear myself say that!!( ) wish we could have stayed longer.

  • "Gormire cottage is delightful."

    The location is perfect for exploring and walking. Its super quiet and restful with beautiful surroundings. The cottage has everything needed for a very comfortable stay, including a washing machine which isnt listed but is present. The garden /patio is south facing so we could enjoy the early summer sun. On clear nights we enjoyed star gazing. It is bigger than the photos make the cottage look which was a nice surprize Only one comment, the bathroom does need a lick of paint as its badly water marked, and whilst the cottage is immaculately clean, the bathroom looks a bit grubby. I would definitely stay again.

    Thank you very much for that honest review. I have booked our decorator friend for this friday due to your feedback. I am so pleased you enjoyed the cottage and look forward to welcoming you back! Natasha Property Owner

  • "It would have been better if a "FReezer" was provided, rather than 2 "Fridges" : an empty cupboard for food storage would be useful : Utility instructions, and recycling of rubbish information should have been in the cottage."

  • "A fantastic holiday cottage- Beautifully decorated with all amenities and in an ideal location to explore the local North Yorkshire sights- beautiful walks on your doorstep, an hour drive from the Seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough and similar distance to York."

    We also did a fantastic mountain bike ride at Sutton Bank (5 min drive), hiring bikes from Sutton Bank bike hire. Multiple Supermarkets in Thirsk are only a 10 min drive away made shopping for food very easy. The house itself offers very comfortable accommodation. A fully equipped kitchen (with 2 small fridges, a washer/dryer, microwave etc). The beds were very comfortable with TVs in each bedroom. The 2 bedrooms are in different sides of the house, accessed by different staircases, however, which may be more problematic for younger families. There is a small games room with pool table which was very exciting for the children. The garden is very well maintained and shared with Woodside Barn, which was absolutely ideal for our joint family holiday with my sister’s family. I would wholeheartedly recommend Gormire cottage to others and would love to return in the future.

  • "Absolutely stunning cottage and surroundings!"

    Lots of lovely little touches, and Prosecco on arrival. The mini pool table in another space (not photographed) kept the kids entertained, and there are plenty of beautiful walks from the farm and trips out to gorgeous Saltburn beach, Fountains Abbey, York, Alpamare Water Park... This place has everything. Natasha was a fantastic host. Everything was perfect. Thank you for a fabulous holiday! We will be back!

  • "The cottage was amazing!"

    When we entered it was clean, comfy, smelled lovely and had all* the facilities you could want. The little touches of biscuits and prosecco helped make the difference, even though we didn't use them. The only let down to such a beautiful place is the *fridge and the storage space for your food. It's so small you cannot get in a shop to cover your stay. You have to go out everyday to get fresh food. There was no where to put your own food. We cleared a drawer to put some of it in. Other than that, a stay to remember. So happy and will go back again. Thank you.

  • "The cottage was really comfortable and had everything we needed."

    Due to COVID restrictions we ate in every night and found the kitchen had everything we required to prepare our meals. The house is furnished with good quality comfortable furniture, particularly the beds. The cottage had a microwave, washing machine and smart tv. The garden has evening sunshine and was perfect for a drink after a day out. Thank you Natasha for your lovely welcome pack. We would certainly be happy to stay again and really enjoyed walking in North Yorkshire.

  • "Cannot rate this property highly enough."

    This break is just what was needed on a wintery yorkshire getaway. Fire, cosy sofa, beautiful crisp walks and wine. Due to Covid restrictions, we weren't able to be greeted and shown around on arrival, however christmas songs on the radio, decorated beautifully and a cheeky wine freebie was much appreciated. Take a good book and whack a log in the fire. Job done. I really think you'll struggle to find somewhere better.
