  • "Very comfortable accommodation and in a lovely, peaceful setting."

    Would definitely go back if ever need to be in that area. Charming and helpful owner. Small points, but more hooks for hanging things (eg towels) in bathroom and bedroom(one bedroom has a hook on door) would be useful. Also need waste bins in bedrooms.

  • "I think the photos don’t give it justice."

    We were surrounded by beautiful countryside settings, loved seeing the chickens and the peacock roaming around throughout the day. Definitely recommend our stay to family and friends. The underfloor hearing was an added bonus and the bed was very comfy. Thank you to Jane and husband for being so welcoming. Hope to visit again in the near future. From the Thompson/Pepperdine family.

  • "Fantastic location."

    Excellent place for a get away. For couples or a family. The owner was really helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend this holiday cottage.

  • "The cottage was clean warm and comfortable and is a building of character, the walls of which are nearly 3ft thick."

    You can listen to the resident tawny owl on an evening, see buzzards fly above during the day, there is plenty of bird song and grey squirrels around keeping the peacock company. The water garden is a delight and the adjacent hall dates back to the early 1700s. Ideally located close to many of the interesting places to visit in the area such as the moors, the wolds and coast.

  • "Just arrived home from 2 weeks in the Stables at Ebberston North Yorkshire."

    The property is an old stone built cottage with 3 bedrooms, large living and dining area. We did get some cold and wet days but the underfloor heating and the log burner was more than adequate. The owner and family was so nice and welcoming. We were invited into their 17 century home to view the old furniture and paintings of their ancestors. All in all we had a fantastic time, the quietness and peace of the immediate area added to the success of the choice for a holiday. Well recommended to any one or family. Jane, the host, was extremely knowledgeable of the home, the area and the best places to eat and to walk. We will definitely be returning. Thanks Jane.

  • "A unique property where you can fully relax with a peacock wandering around the garden!"

    Ideally situated for either the Moors or coast. Guests should note that their is no WiFi which could be a plus for many wanting a peaceful break also the driveway is an unmade track and could be an issue for vehicles with a low slung exhaust.

  • "The house was lovely and clean and the bedrooms are fantastic."

    The beds were extremely comfy and once you get used to the main road noise and the serenading owls a good nights sleep is guaranteed. The main upstairs bathroom was also very nice and there are all the facilities you could ever need especially in the kitchen. You are ideally located between the coast and the moors. However there wasn't a welcome pack to explain anything, the owner did say to knock or text to ask anything but feels an inconvenience to do so. The back garden is actually a tiny gravel courtyard, the advertised garden is actually the owners garden next door which you feel you should ask to visit. The DVD player makes a horrible clunking noise which when played even with the TV on full volume can still be heard making viewing impossible. Sadly with no WiFi meant no alternative viewing options.

    The situation of this cottage is unique, the adjacent Hall is magnificent and the owner was happy for us to wander the surrounding grounds which was lovely. If you're an animal lover (especially peacocks, geese and dogs) seeking rural peace yet with good access to coast and moors this cottage is ideal. I would visit again.
