  • "Great location and description describes cottage perfectly."

    We lost power in the evening and owner responded within 5 minutes to fix issue. Unfortunately circumstances cut short our stay but would use again . Just a bit more eye for detail on cleaning.

  • "A nice little place, very quiet, no complaints - only one suggestion: The curtains in the bedrooms are very thin, so the early morning light is quite strong and people go on holiday for a rest, a lie-in, etc."

    Perhaps get them lined or replaced with better quality ones? Many thanks, r

    Comfy king size bed and plenty of wardrobe space. Beautiful peaceful spot with nice outside area with moor views. Helpful owner on hand but not obtrusive.

  • "Being an electric wheelchair user it isn't easy to find accessable cottages but luckily this property has a ramp to access the front door."

    Unfortunately vehicle parking is at the rear of the property and there wasn't a ramp up to the rear door. Not really a problem but if it is raining it can be a little wet before getting around to the front door. Upon mentioning this to Keith, the owner of the property , he apologised and within five minutes he was outside the back door making an access ramp. Excellent customer care ! Had a really restful and relaxing stay at Pottofields farm and would recommend to anyone who wants to get away and leave the rat race behind for a while.

  • "My second stay at Cooper Cottage."

    Keith was again very welcoming and helpful, and on hand to help with any queries. We had a really restorative stay. The kids enjoyed the quiet, rural location, and had great fun on the swings, including in the dark, where they enjoyed star gazing in the absence of light pollution. Being on the edge of the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors, Cooper Cottage is a great base from which to explore this beautiful area, with many lovely places to visit. I recommend a climb up Roseberry Topping on a clear day. We would also highly recommend the Blue Bell Inn at nearby Ingleby Cross for excellent pub food and an unspoiled country pub atmosphere. The staff were lovely, and the chef caters well for special dietary needs, in particular gluten free. Being a little "off grid" (no WiFi!) allowed us to enjoy some simple family pleasures, such as board games, in the evenings, where normally it might have been a struggle to prise my son away from his games console. The log burner added a lovely cosy element to the evenings. The facilities are lovely. Modern and clean, with all needs provided for, including dishwasher and washing machine. A minor point - ideally a fridge without a freezer compartment would be good, since the availability of a separate freezer (which is definitely a plus) negates any need for a freezer compartment in the fridge, and makes the actual fridge space rather small for a family. My only minor negative comment is (having come with my husband and children this time, as opposed to my mum and sister last time), the games room could do with a little TLC. There are no tips on the pool cues, so despite the presence of a pool table, you can't actually play. Could treat the room to a couple of new sets of darts, and a puck for the air hockey. None the less, we did make use of the games room, mainly the darts and the table football, and all enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely come again. Thanks Keith for a lovely stay.

  • "The cottage is plenty big enough for the 4 people that it sleeps."

    The bathroom is a great size. The setting is lovely and the owner, Keith, was very helpful. Always at the end of the phone if required. The only negative would be a lack of hangers, half a dozen at most.

  • "Cooper Cottage was in the perfect location for our holiday as we were taking our mum to visit old friends in the area."

    My mum was born in Swainby and we have all visited Pottofields farm many years ago as the farm belonged to my mum's friend's family. Cooper Cottage was spacious, clean, comfortable and very good value for money. For constructive feedback we thought we would need a larger fridge if we were staying there as a family with children. We also struggled to get the water to come out of the shower at the right temperature. We would definitely recommend this accommodation and would be very happy to return. It really is a lovely location with views of the moors and is well set up for holidaymakers.

About the location


Great Ayton 3 miles; Saltburn-by-the–Sea 14 miles.

Stokesley is an attractive, elegant, historic market town which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, with many interesting Georgian and Victorian buildings. The River Leven flows through the town and is crossed by the ancient Pack Horse Bridge. Levenside provides visitors with a peaceful riverside walk, well planted with trees, as a contrast to the bustle of the High Street. The town has a distinguished wide cobbled main street lined with Georgian and Regency buildings. It is well served with shops, banks, public houses and restaurants and the weekly Friday markets are held on the main square. Just off the market square is the Church of St Peter & St Paul which has woodwork carved by the Mouseman of Kilburn. Surrounded by the Cleveland Hills and close to the northern edge of the North York Moors, Stokesley provides an ideal base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales, the heather clad North Yorkshire Moors and the pretty market towns of Great Ayton, Northallerton and Thirsk. The seaside spa resort of Saltburn is 30 mins drive away whilst Whitby, Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay are within easy reach.
