    Very comfortable. Well situated for dog walks and the coast. Great contact from the owner when we experienced a power cut. Would recommend.

  • "This is the third time i have been to the cottage."

    i love the area and the cottage is all you need for a great comfy stay. The only thing i would like to say i find negative is the book in and out times. i understood when we had covid restrictions the owners needed longer, but now they have been listed why did i have to wait until 4.30 to get in and have to be out by 09:30am. 3pm and 10am would be much nicer,

    Thank you Michelle for your feedback, it is indeed a lovely area to visit. I have considered the various options for arrival/departure times and arranged for the check-in time to be brought forward to 15.30. I will keep this under review though; circumstances do change and I may be able to improve on this at a later date. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little cottage with incredibly thoughtful touches like a varied selection of books, decor, yummy treats and a little container of milk."

    Beautiful area and easy walks from the door. The most comfortable bedding and soft fluffy towels. Beautiful Denby crockery as well. The cottage smelled a bit, not sure if the smell of dogs or damp, quite a few stains on the carpets, I guess expected with dogs. First night woke up in the night to smell of bad body odour and it was coming from the quilt on top of the bedding. I pushed it down in the night and the next morning took it off the bed. What was left on the lovely white duvet cover was loose dirt and lots of black dog hair. Our dogs stay downstairs and have white fur. Think the quilt would benefit from washing more often. Previous people put dirty/used spoons back in the spoon cup. Toilet seat makes a loud creaking noise every time it is used and the double bed creaks badly as well. We could hear every time our daughter moved in the bed. One side worse than the other so not sure if the frame or mattress. Comfortable though, just needs attention. Make sure to bring hand soap for the bathroom, extra dishwasher tablets and toilet roll. Beware lovely chickens roaming, in case your dogs aren’t used to them. They are very cute! All in all an incredibly lovely stay just a few things that would benefit from some attention.

    Thank you Tamara for your comprehensive review of Woodside Cottage. I am glad that you had a lovely stay but I am very sorry about the bedspread, I should have spotted the problem with it. I shall look into the other issues you mentioned and see what can be done to resolve these too. Property Owner

    Cannot fault the facilities at all, everything you need for a relaxing week away, kitchen equipment well stocked, starter pack for the wood burner, enclosed yard for the dogs. The owners also provide some lovely welcome touches with homemade flapjacks, treats for the dogs, and OS maps of the local area... and the mice (not the living variety) dotted around the property are adorable. There are plenty of walks from the front door or within a 5 min drive, we enjoyed getting (slightly) lost in Wykeham Forest, and Cayton Bay is only a 20min drive away for a stroll on the beach. Would definitely recommend and will be looking to rebook again for next year. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    The hosts provided more than anticipated. And the pics pre stay were good but the place itself had more character than they gave credit.

  • "A lovely cottage with spacious bedrooms and a well-equipped kitchen."

    Very comfortable in a rural location with beautiful views when driving into town. It was easy to spend time here and close to places of interest. However, there was one downside for us which would stop us staying here again and this was the bathroom which was unusual as it had a step in the middle of the room with the entrance and shower below the step and the the loo, sink and bath above. This meant that we found ourselves having to constantly be aware that the step was there and, as I am clumsy, not to forget and fall. The flooring was the same throughout so did not make the change in levels obvious. This was a particular concern when accessing facilities during the night. In short, a beautifully maintained and comfortable cottage but not for those with mobility issues.

We visited Thirsk and that longish run gave us taste of the different countryside and villages. Our 'discovery' of nearby Trourtsdale thrilled us and our visit to Nunnington Hall, although expensive (we are not N.T. members), gave us a really civilised day out!

We'd love to come back and wouldn't hesitate to return to Woodside Cottage again.
