    The property was fresh, warm and clean and had everything we needed including the large paddock, which provided freedom for our dog to run around, she loved it. A very peaceful and quiet location and perfect for visiting the coast, market towns and of course the moors. Our host Kate could not do enough for us and made us feel very welcome. We would recommend and will return in the future.

    We were greeted with the lovely Kate when we arrived and left us to our weekend to enjoy, but was also on the phone if we needed anything. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind with our dog who really enjoyed the secure paddock and the peacefulness as I’m always training him in busy places, so I think he needed it just as much as we did. We did however have some time at the beach and just felt like we were abroad. We ended up sitting in the sun enjoying the sounds of wildlife in the paddock and couldn’t be more relaxed if we tried! The cottage itself was nice and cosy and had basically everything we needed for a short stay. We’ve been recommending it to everyone we know and will definitely be back. Thank you so much!! Xx

    There was no hob/oven but a unit on top of the work space with two hot rings. The rings were then at shoulder height making it too dangerous to use. I realise it was out in the countryside but there were so many beetles in side. I bought some insect killer but they continued to come in. I cut my stay short and went to a hotel

    Thank you for your feedback. The description clearly describes the facilities at the cottage and there is also a separate hob.If you had brought the issues to my attention I could have rectified this for you.This is is the first time this has happened and someone has been in to check this out and it is partly due to the warm weather followed by rain and the countryside location.The issue has now been resolved by a qualified expert in this field.

    The combi boiler meant instant hot water without having to work anything out and the shower was excellent (I have longish hair and sometimes showers just don't work). Instruction manuals were in place for all the kitchen equipment. Fantastic location for trips out to the moors or the coast, although, at night, the entrance from the A170 Pickering - Malton road took some finding - at first. Plenty of wildlife (hares, lapwings) and truly dark skies for star gazing. Kate was on hand if we needed anything (which we didn't) but otherwise we were left to enjoy our stay in complete peace. We, and our german shepherd, Genna, had a lovely time. Would highly recommend.

  • "We were generally happy with our stay at Derwent House Farm."

    A few changes would make the cottage a better prospect. 1) The information describes the cottage as having a well equipeed kitchen, but the cottage does not have a proper oven/hob/grill. The compact worktop oven in the cottage is not ideal. 2) The oil fired heater, which is sited under the worktop, is massively over-powered for the needs of the cottage. We were almost too warm, despite the cool weather, even though we turned the thermostat right down. Running the hot tap or taking a shower generated a lot of heat directly from the oil burner itself. The burner would be far better situated outside the cottage, perhaps in a small lean-to. This would also cut down the noise generated by the burner, which could easily heat a barn. 3) A small but important point, the fridge, (which looked very new), makes a very annoying noise, a pure tone, which is impossible to escape and became nauseating after a time. I have no sulution to offer in this case.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Derwent House Farm. We have taken your comments on board. Previous guests have not mentioned the cooking facilities. There is adequate cooking facilities in the property including a grill. We were told to put that type of boiler in the property. This meets building regulations for an old barn. Unfortunately there is little we can do when it comes to the noise but it usually happened when it try's to cool down if not stocked. Thank you and we hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "We had a great week at Dewent House Farm and were especially impressed by the owners desire to make sure we had an enjoyable time."

    The location was perfect and had privacy but help near by if we needed it. The adjacent paddock was ideal for peaceful sit, especially in the evening - we could only hear bird song. Next time we will bring the dog! The house worked well for my wife as she has limited mobility, but could maybe have a grab rail in the shower. A couple of extras such as an iron/ironing board, chair in the bedroom, some hooks to hang coats etc and a little more crockery/glasses would make the holiday home perfect. Once again the owner was more than willing to hear any suggetions. We really do look forward to returning to such a lovely part of the world and such a warm welcome.

  • "We required a thorough rest and escape from our home renovations."

    The cottage holiday certainly allowed us peace and quiet in a relaxed farm environment with our dog. The facilities were excellent ... all we required. The location perfect ... short drives to pubs, country towns, places of interest and the coast. The hosts were helpful and there to assist when required. This probably was our most relaxing holiday in memory and would highly recommend a stay! We certainly will be considering re-booking. The initial choice of location and booking was relatively easy and we gained reminders and support from Sykes throughout the process. We were impressed!

  • "This cottage is ideally located to serve as a base to explore the North Yorks Moors, Scarborough, Robin Hood's Bay, Whitby, and York."

    It is close to Malton and Pickering too. We loved the location and the cottage and the owners were really helpful and polite. The cottage is so peaceful, and we had a fantastic restful time. The cottage also features a private paddock which was wonderful for our dog too. We will definitely be booking a stay again. Thank you so much!

A heart-warming retreat tucked away within a rural setting on the outskirts of Malton, is the endearing Derwent House Farm.

Perfect for a couple looking to explore the area which lies within close reach to the rugged North York Moors National Park and the dramatic coastline, with the popular seaside resort of Scarborough close by.

Be welcomed by the bright interior which houses charming exposed beams and elegant furnishing to offer a warming base to come back to each evening.

The well-appointed kitchen offers the necessities to prepare a hearty evening meal before you sink into the armchairs which rest in front of a Freeview TV.

As the evening draws to a close, look forward to drifting off to sleep within the double bedroom which comes with an en-suite, with walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Spend a moment or two on the patio area, where you can enjoy your morning coffee whilst your canine companions stretch their legs in the private enclosed paddock before your day’s adventure.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful spot, you will find a welcoming pub within 4 miles offering a delicious dining menu, while a selection of shops can be found within the centre of Malton.

Brush up on the local history by visiting the Eden Camp Modern History Museum, Kirkham Priory and Castle Howard, each situated within close reach.
