The cottage is beautifully furnished and very comfortable with everything you need. The location is superb, in a quiet rural location, but with all the stunning areas to visit close by including Saltburn, Sandsend, Whitby and Runswick Bay all within a short drive. Two small negatives - there is no information about bins in the property and the 5pm check in and 9am check out times are too late/early. If these could be relaxed by an hour it would be perfect. Reviewed by Joanne5.0★Aug 2023 "This is a beautiful house in a lovely quiet village, the people in the village are very friendly, would highly recommend this holiday let to anyone." Reviewed by Catherine5.0★Jun 2023 "We enjoyed our stay in this outstanding cottage everything we could have wished for, furnished to a very high standard lovely garden to sit out in the sunshine." Lovely village and and friendly locals. Reviewed by Susan5.0★Jun 2023 "Great place looks better than pictures." 100% recommended. Only a minor thing would prefer a king size bed. Bit as I said this property is one of the best cottages I have stayed in. Reviewed by David5.0★May 2023 "A really lovely cottage with beautiful garden." Very well equipped and extremely comfortable. King size bed very comfy with quality bedding. We didnt need twin room. Upstairs shower great with large bath. (We didn't use downstairs shower). Kitchen well equipped, everything you could need. Generally extremely clean. A few reviews have said about the church clock chiming, but after the first day I can't say we noticed. It's definitely not Big Ben! Parking is plentiful and easy, directly opposite the cottage. We looked out of the window over the garden and onto our car. We took our small to medium sized dog who loved the garden and local walks. However, there is a note when you arrive requesting owners to keep their dogs to the hard floor areas, which is difficult as the lounge is carpeted and open plan into the kitchen. The stairs and all of the upstairs is carpeted too. Our dog is used to being with us, so this was a challenge, and I think if the cottage owner expects this, it should be in the cottage description before booking so not a surprise on arrival. There are a couple of other points that we feel are very important. In the handbook, there is no instruction for how to set the central heating or the underfloor heating. We sussed the CH as we googled the programmer. We also googled the UFH programmer but could not get the underfloor heating to come on, hence the conservatory was not used as it was cold. I know the owner says contact them, but this info should be available. We were shocked that given todays global environmental challenges there are no instructions or facilities for recycling and we could not find outdoor refuse bin(s) on the property. We feel that this needs to be improved and is essential going forward. The check in and out times are extreme and we felt we lost a day of our holiday. In at 3/4pm and out at 10am would be kinder. For all of the comments we have made, we had a wonderful week, thank you. The cottage is really lovely and we would visit again if recycling was sorted out and check in changed. The Ellerby is a great find for Sunday lunch or any day. Would recommend. 5* The Jolly Sailor (closest pub) is middling to ok, nothing to write home about and budget wise it cost us more than The Ellerby, and we felt no comparison quality-wise. Whitby typical seaside town. Lots of fish n chips places NOT dog friendly. There are a few if you look. I will ammend dogs to downstairs. It was simply because we had a previous guest who allowed their pets on the furniture and beds , which simply ruined the expensive throws that were provided. The bins are situated at the end of the garden so as not to be in view of a window. there are three all labelled . Houshold, Garden and Recycle. Sorry about check in/out times but we are a two sister operation and have three properties to clean, although an hour either end we felt was not unreasonable. Property Owner Reviewed by Jackie4.1★Apr 2023 "A lovely cottage with great garden for the dog to play in, a beautiful area and would highly recommend it to people who love to explore the local countryside as there are some excellent footpaths just a stones throw from the cottages front door." The only negatives are very little.. Provision of a washing up brush and surface cleaning spray and a dustpan & brush would of been handy. A clothes maid would be useful as the weather does not always allow the use of the washing line. And I personally think that 9am is a very early departure time and meant our last morning was very rushed, with 4 people wanting showers and breakfast.. and also having to strip our beds and putting it all in bags downstairs took time away too! (We have never had this in any other cottage we stayed in before!) 10am would be a more reasonable time in my opinion. Overall though we throughly enjoyed our stay here in such a charming little village! Reviewed by Paul4.7★Apr 2023 "Beautiful property in beautiful surroundings." We would recommend 100% and will absolutely be returning. Fantastic host - thank you Karen for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage Reviewed by Melinda4.4★Feb 2023 "This was our 2nd visit to Cheriton Cottage as it fits our needs well." No doubt there will be a third visit next year. It's really quiet and relaxing after a long day on the beach walking the dog's (thanks again for allowing two) Reviewed by Paul5.0★Oct 2022 "Fantastic property, great location and a comfy stay!" The only tiny bugbear is that although there is a washing machine and pegs, we could not find an airer or a washing line to use to dry clothes that had been washed! Might be worth having a free-standing airer that could be used in the laundry room or outside if weather permits? But otherwise we could not fault the property, and will be booking again soon! Sorry for late reply , i have just read this. !! There is a clothes airer in the utility room and a washing line (contracable) on the patio area. Sorry if they were not easily found, thats the reason i write on every card should there be any problems however small to ring me as im only in the village..... i think guests are reluctant to, but its really no bother. Karen Property Owner Reviewed by Beverly4.7★Aug 2022 "Cheriton Cottage was a well presented comfortable cottage that expectations were exceeded." Home from home in many areas could not fault any aspect of the property. Location was ideal for a relaxing getaway with coastline within easy reach ,fishing village Staithes ,Sandsend and Runswick Bay perfect places to visit. Would highly recommend . Reviewed by Joanne4.7★Aug 2022 "Another fantastic holiday at the Cheriton." A really relaxing 2 weeks, spent plenty of time in the spacious garden just chilling. Its the perfect place to stay with the coast at Saltburn just 15 mins away. Hope to be back soon Reviewed by David5.0★Jul 2022 "Great stay and would return." Sometimes the main TV would freeze.

Reviewed by Elizabeth5.0★Jun 2022 "Only that, as someone else had previously suggested, a lighter Summer weight duvet would be useful." If the owner would like the feedback published, that is fine with us. Reviewed by Jane4.7★Jun 2022 "Lovely village, excellent refurbishment of property." Good standard of furnishings, fantastic garden for dogs. Overall a very pleasant and relaxing holiday. Reviewed by Phillip4.4★Jun 2022 "Cheriton Cottage is a beautiful holiday home in a delightful quiet village if you want to get away from it all." The cottage itself has everything you need and is of a very high standard of decor and cleanliness. The garden is stunning. The location is fantastic for visiting the surrounding area including Whitby, Saltburn, Sandsend, Runswick Bay, Robin Hoods Bay and Falling Foss. There is no local shop in the village, but there are supermarkets further afield. This is our second stay and we had a wonderful week. The only downside is the 5pm entry and 9am departure times, please make this 4pm and 10am in line with most other properties. Reviewed by Joanne5.0★May 2022 "We found Cheriton Cottage easy to access, welcoming, warm and clean." The welcome feeling was enhanced with a personal card and drink. Furnishing and bedding were comfortable. Bathrooms not en suite, but convenient enough. In the Kitchen was well equipped and everything worked. Wi-Fi, TV, all worked really well. Moorsholm is a small village offering a couple of nice walks and is a good starting point from which to explore the area further. Reviewed by Agnes4.7★May 2022 "Beautiful cottage in a very peaceful location - close to coast and the Moors." Lots of lovely walks/runs (tough hills though) near the cottage to explore especially the woods! The cottage is extremely comfortable and very clean and warm. The garden is a big plus just a shame the weather meant we didn’t get to use it as much as hoped. Would definitely recommend. Reviewed by Kerry5.0★May 2022 "This property is the nicest place we have ever stayed and the garden is impressive." I cannot recommend it highly enough and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Reviewed by Peter5.0★Apr 2022 "Wonderful holiday property." The property was warm and spacious and all the furniture and beds comfortable. The garden was spectacular, we were there over Easter and it was in full colour. The bedding and towels felt luxurious and the showers had great water pressure and plenty of hot water. The property is a great place to spend time in good or poor weather as there is also a fantastic/massive television to enjoy on a rainy day and plenty of space to spread out. The village is charming, we walked our dog regularly over to the football/cricket pitch to exercise but for all other needs you will need to use your car. We have already rebooked to return in the summer. Reviewed by Kathy5.0★Apr 2022 "An extremely comfortable, warm and well equipped cottage in an ideal location for touring the area." We had just one suggestion to make with the owner which was to provide a DVD/Bluray player. We left a note for her. We would certainly stay here again if we are back in the area. Reviewed by Brian5.0★Apr 2022 "Lovely cottage , all you could wish for and more ." Would definitely return if staying in this area again . Reviewed by Philip5.0★Mar 2022 "Better than the photos." Lovely garden. Great that it was opposite the church. Easy parking and so close to the epic North Yorkshire Moors. Owner helpful and quick to respond to minor queries. Sykes quotes full price upfront unlike Airbnb who wait to the last click to add their hefty service charge. Reviewed by Alan5.0★Mar 2022 "Cheriton cottage is the most idyllic place we have ever stayed; within a 10 - 15 minute drive you can be in the midst of the amazing views of the Yorkshire Moors or, going in the other direction, you can walk for miles at the fabulous Yorkshire Coast." The cottage itself is set in the quaint village of Moorsholm - so pretty and extremely well kept by the friendly community who live there. However, the nearest shop and pub are a short drive away. Cheriton is nothing short of a luxury home from home. You can tell it has been tastefully renovated throughout and no expense has been spared on the fixtures and fittings! We found that the cottage was really well equipped and spotlessly clean - we especially loved the luxurious bedding and the oversized soft fluffy towels. The shower was amazing too, although the water gets extremely hot so be careful! The garden is so pretty and even though it was too chilly for us to sit out, we could relax in the garden room at the back of the cottage with a book/newspaper and a cuppa (or glass of wine!) Honestly, if it's a relaxing stay you are wanting with close (driving) access to the Moors & Coast, you will not be disappointed here. Huge thanks to the owners for a lovely week, we shall return!

Very comfortable lounge, excellent kitchen facilities, fridge freezer, washing machine. (an airer would have been handy). Garden which would be lovely in the summer months. Comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again. Reviewed by Brian5.0★Nov 2021 "Lovely cottage, better than expected." Really homely and spacious. The only thing I would suggest is a warning sign as the water is extremely hot! Excellent garden and we will be returning in 2022 (if you'll have us ?) Perfect! Reviewed by Paul5.0★Oct 2021 "Cheriton cottage was wonderful and comfortable, clean and spacious!" We managed to explore a lot of the coastline from the cottage. The kitchen could do with more utensils and pans, but the garden is absolutely fabulous! We had a smashing holiday and the weather was very kind! Reviewed by Sam5.0★Oct 2021 "Beautiful cottage, furnished to a very high standard, warm and comfortable." The addition of a beautiful garden made it perfect. Reviewed by Maureen5.0★Oct 2021 "Cheriton Cottage is a beautifully presented cottage in a great location for exploring the Yorkshire coast." The pictures are reflective of the property and we’ll maintained garden. We did however find the fact that no TVs have standard signals quite annoying as it relied too n you having all the screen mirroring / casting devices and associates Apps and accounts for channels. Even with all of this (thankfully for us), the signal was poor at times. We feel having a TV with at least routine free view channels is a basic, unless otherwise included in the listing. My parents would never have managed with the requirements and there is no guide available. Reviewed by Rebecca3.8★Oct 2021 "Lovely cottage and great gardens." Nice place to explore Yorkshire coast and moors. Reviewed by Louise4.4★Aug 2021 "The cottage was stunning, both inside and out." Perfectly placed to visit all the places we love on the North Yorks Coast. Reviewed by David5.0★Jul 2021 "Cheriton Cottage is a beautiful base to explore the stunning North East coastline." The standard of accommodation is outstanding with a beautiful garden to relax in. We explored the local area of Saltburn, Sandsend, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Runswick Bay and Falling Foss and enjoyed great weather and the stunning beaches. There is a local cricket club where you can walk your dog. The only negative is the church opposite ringing the bells at bizarre times of the night, 11am/3am/4am. We got used to it, but you may want to take some earplugs! Overall, we would highly recommend Cheriton Cottage and will be back. Reviewed by Joanne5.0★Jul 2021 "Lovely cottage and beautiful garden, sadly let down by previous guests with dogs who had not picked up after them in the garden, this was a concern for us as we have two children." In terms of cleanliness, the dishwasher needs a thorough clean, especially the seals and filters. These were clogged when we arrived with grease and food remains. Also, high tog duvets far too thick in the hot July weather. This meant we had to strip all the beds on arrival, so we could just use the duvet covers. Owner should consider providing guests with smaller, light-weight duvets in the summer months. Kitchen has only very basic equipment and utensils, e.g. no fruit bowl, fine for us, but maybe a consideration for other guests.

Very well equipped kitchen with everything you need. The garden is amazing and so relaxing. I would definitely recommend a stay here and will be returning for another amazing holiday Reviewed by Lesley5.0★Jul 2021 "The cottage is so well presented, the decor and equipment are top class throughout." You don’t just get given cheap plates and cups, there has obviously been a lot of care and attention gone in to providing quality furnishings and kitchen equipment, it made us feel luxurious! (I’d love a list of where you got everything. from?!) Walking through the door were so ‘at home’ immediately, it has that feel to the place. The conservatory is a lovely place to spend the days before retiring to the cosy lounge. The garden is very well kept with lovely seating areas and table. Roadside parking could be a concern but not here it is so quiet and peaceful and no problem. Easy access to the A roads but far enough away not to realise! It would have been good to have a bit more local recommendations for beaches or things to do in the welcome book but I guess we have wi-if Reviewed by David5.0★Jun 2021 "This was one of the best cottages we have stayed in." It was tastefully and comfortably furnished and the garden was immaculate and beautifully kept. Two lovely lounges and two bathrooms gave us plenty of space and privacy. Masses of kitchen storage space and a superdupa fridge/freezer and cooker. Thoroughly recommend Reviewed by Karen5.0★Jun 2021 "A lovely cottage with a very pretty garden."

The bed was very comfortable and the sitting areas have nice chairs and settees. The village is very quiet and we found everybody friendly. Although there is no shop it is not far from all facilities. There were good walks for our dog and unlike where we live it’s pretty flat. Unfortunately the weather don’t allow us much use of the garden which was a shame at it is a very pleasant place with apple trees and lots of cottage garden plants. We hope to return.
