  • "It is easily one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in."

    Everything one could possibly need was there, we cannot fault anything.

  • "Lovely setting, and delightful property, ideal for our needs."

    The downstairs bedrooms were ideal for myself and my husband, because of my disabilities. Very peaceful.

  • "A lovely comfortable place to stay."

    Would recommend to others. Lovely little village near to the North Yorkshire Moors.

  • "The Cottage was lovely."

    The only thing we would change is the dining table which was only a gateleg and consequently uncomfortable. Trying to avoid the huge wooden structure in the centre and the legs at either end in the middle was impossible. Also, it would have been better if there was an alternative lightweight cover for the bed as the quilt was very hot. Even so, we enjoyed our stay very much.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have a lovely new dining table, without a gateleg! Kind Regards. Property Owner

  • "Our week at the cottage was very good."

    It is comfortable and well furnished. The village is lovely and the pub serves excellent food Friday, Saturday and Sunday to eat in or take away. It’s only 4 miles from Pickering but we were unlucky as roadworks caused a lengthy diversion. Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine made a lovely welcome gift. Lovely walks around the village as well.

  • "Lovely cottage it is bigger on the inside than it looks, Very clean and well kept with all the needed amenities."

    The only minor fault is that the garden is not enclosed for our dog which could be rectified with a fence an gate otherwise it could not be faulted. Enjoyable watching the horses train in the nearby paddock from the living room window.

  • "Dairy House was cosy, surprisingly spacious and well- equipped."

    Lots of plus points: log fire and generous basket of logs, secure bike store (for 2 bikes), quite a good selection of books / DVDs / games provided, location on the edge of the North York Moors near Pickering, Helmsley, Dalby Forest, Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Scarborough and other places on the coast, village playground with zip wire and football pitch (in March the tennis net was down and the pitch was too muddy anyway for tennis), village pub. Everything went smoothly with Sykes: booking, payment, cottage instructions etc. Cottage owners were great and made a courtesy phone call to confirm details and sent us useful extra information about the cottage and local area. We even had a call from the local contact for the cottage after we'd arrived to check everything was ok. The complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch. Highly recommended.

  • "This is a very cosy and comfortable cottage."

    Mary and Ann made us feel very welcome. The bed we slept in upstairs was very comfortable. Lovely garden to sit in. Peaceful surroundings. Plenty of nice walks and places to visit. Our dog loved it too - none of us wanted to leave.

  • "I was particularly impressed to find that the owners had supplied replacement appliances for the kitchen in case of failure."

    We managed to break the kettle switch, rang the Cleaner, and were guided to a 'secret' cupboard containing replacements. Absolutely marvellous service!

    Comfortable and clean great to have dishwasher and other amenities. Would recommend with 4 or more adults that upstairs bath has screen fitted and wall holder for additional shower. Otherwise very comfortable

  • "The Dairy House is a lovely place to stay."

    It is very spacious and comfortable. The house is spotlessly clean and very welcoming. It is set in a quiet location next to a farm, and the surrounding scenery is beautiful. It has a lovely homely feel and is very well equipped. There is a downstairs bedroom and shower room which are very handy for disabled guests. There is a friendly pub nearby which serves good food. The owner is very helpful, as is the lady who looks after the place. Nothing is too much trouble, and a lot of thought has gone into making this house a real home from home. I would highly recommend Dairy House and would definitely stay there again.

  • "Lovely cottage, plenty of space, very quiet setting, local pub just a few yards away and served lovely food, and very friendly."

    A short drive to Pickering and about 45mins to the coast. Cottage was very well equipped and has a real fire to light on cold nights. Would recommend for a quiet break or a base to explore. Beautifully kept.

The property

A quality sympathetic conversion of an old stone farm building, resulting in an individual holiday home of great character and comfort. With an exceptionally high standard of furnishing and equipment, this cottage nestles high on the moors in a quiet National Park village above Newtondale where the steam trains whistle below. In the 19th century, the property housed a horse driven threshing machine and more recently it became a dairy and features a unique stone fireplace, along with massive timber beams, which may have come from oaks in Newtondale or from ships broken up at Whitby. Ecologically aware, Dairy House offers spacious accommodation over two floors with three bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room, and provides a light and airy feel, whilst it also feels cosy in winter. Footpaths nearby wander through wild flower pastures, beautiful woodlands and on to the moors.

Cyclists can enjoy gentle meanders or challenging banks and a few miles away, Dalby Forest offers mountain biking trails for all levels. Enjoy a steam railway ride, which takes you up the valley and across the moors to the coast - one of the most spectacular railway journeys in Britain. A delightful cottage offering peace and tranquillity.
