  • "Great location if you want to explore the moors and coastline."

    ..or even just enjoy the tranquility of the cottage location. Comfortable and we'll equipped. Prefect if you have a dog too.

  • "Couldn't really have wished for more!"

    Great location, welcoming host and accommodation that was really easy to be in with everything you would need. Even the chickens come and see you in the morning!

  • "A simply stunning location in a very rural setting, you do need a vehicle appropriate to farm tracks and steep hills."

    The property also lacks access to wi-if and mobile reception is patchy. An accommodating owner, who lives on site and can be contacted easily if required. The cottage is very ‘rustic’, but practical. It is dog friendly. It definitely suits a family keen on adventure and the experience of rural life, but not one that likes all the modern trappings.

  • "This cottage is ** very ** remote."

    It's not hard to find if you can read a map and its remoteness is wonderful -- hardly any phone reception or data , starry skies, lots of wildlife, we loved it. The cottage is very well equipped -- the usual things I bring were scarcely needed. Contrary to some listings it is two double beds and a third room that is great for children. You do not need to take tea towels. It's a great area with loads to do -- if you don't mind driving a stretch first. We had a lovely holiday.

    Beautiful scenery. Perfect for our family to stay on a farm with animals. Really enjoyed family facilities at Danby visitors centre and appreciated proximity to perfect beaches. Loved the artwork in the cottage- a great holiday.

  • "Set in a beautiful part of the country."

    Hard to find anywhere quite as unspoilt. My grand daughter counted 260 pheasants in 3 days.

  • "This cottage is set in the most scenic of locations, the far reaching vistas are something to die for."

    There are a wide variety of locations to explore from this location if you can pull yourself away from the comfort of the typical farm house kitchen, the fantastic North York moors are all around, while the cost is a very short journey away, some quite seaside bays and of course the ever popular seaside center of Whitby,try the one hundred and ninety nine steps challenge. We were on holiday over Christmas and had a magical time with grandchildren family and dogs, which are made welcome. The situation is high up on a dale side, which makes it very peaceful and quiet. It's just perfect.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of being off the beaten track ."

    We especially loved all the wildlife and of course the owners 2 horses and chickens . The only drawback was the very steep narrow lane leading to the cottage . Not recommended for a winter break unless you have a 4 wheeled drive .. Other than that small issue the cottage was beautiful and spacious and we will be going back .

    Relaxing week. Idyllic rural setting. Wildlife in abundance. Many potential places for day visits, both in the moors and on the coast. No doubt we will return for another week next year.

  • "The cottage is lovely in a beautiful setting."

    Visitors should be aware that access is up a very narrow road up a steep hill which to us was no problem but may be to less confident drivers. Also although it was a dog friendly cottage I had to keep both my dogs on leads as there was no garden as such. However this did not detract in any way from the lovely, cosy cottage and fantastic surroundings which we all thoroughly enjoyed.

  • "Great views, walking through this beautiful countryside, such a peaceful and relaxing area."

    But within short drive at the North Sea beaches and lively Whitby. Yorkshire moors offer a unique combination. August seems the best period to go with the different heather types all in flower. The cottage has so very good beds we rarely found before. And enough space to allow longer stays without feeling squeezed also with 2 joint parties or 2 generations. Only not ideal for people who prefer exhaustive showers: there some care has to be taken due to the wooden bathroom floor.
