    Clean with up to date facilities in a truly gorgeous rural area. It was a perfect retreat for us and the peace and rest we so needed. Easy to get to Whitby ( park and ride is perfect) and Scarborough. Very helpful owners when we got lost!

  • "Well presented cottage with only minor problems."

    The aged leather settee lacked comfort and the key safe was so old we had difficulty using it. The view from the front door of the cottage is magnificent.

    Thank you for your feedback that the cottage was well presented and your message that you enjoyed your stay. Many previous guests have commented how comfortable they find everything in the cottage so I’m sorry that the sofa did not suit your own personal preference. The keysafe is not old and is straightforward to use with a button next to the number dial to open it. I responded immediately when you contacted me upon your arrival and opened the keysafe personally for you so you could access the cottage straight away. I strive to provide a lovely experience for guests, always trying my best to help and providing lots of additional touches in the cottage to help provide an enjoyable and comfortable stay.

    Thank you for your feedback score of 100% that you gave when rating Dairy Cottage which includes the accuracy of the listing, comfort, cleanliness and facilities and maintenance. We are delighted that you gave the cottage a perfect score. We are sorry that you had an issue with the toilet flush, if we had been contacted during your stay, then this could have been looked at straight away for you. The toilet is flushed during every changeover and was tested after your stay and we could not find any fault with it but we will keep checking it and get it looked at if an issue is found.

    The bath spa would have been lovely however when we switched it on a load of black debris shot out which actually put us off of using it and it left black bits all in the bath which we left for the owner to see...... The cottage was very comfortable and we had a lovely stay despite the above comments...

    Thank you for providing feedback on your stay. It is great to hear that you thought Dairy Cottage was very comfortable and you had a lovely stay. I provide a complimentary welcome gift for guests which has previously received many positive comments so I apologise if this did not meet with your satisfaction on this occasion. I would also like to assure you that during every changeover the whirlpool bath is cleaned then filled with specialist whirlpool bath cleaner and run on the whirlpool setting for the recommended time before being rinsed and cleaned again. I am sorry that you did not contact me during your stay as I would have been happy to repeat the whirlpool bath pipe cleaning process until it was fixed if I had been aware of the issue you were having. My phone number is clearly shown on the front page of the visitor information book within the cottage and I am easily contactable and on hand, always doing my best to help in any way with any queries as has been commented upon previously by guests. Thank you again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Dairy Cottage."

    The cottage was warm with a nice bathroom that included a bath as well as a shower. A very large bedroom. We will have to go back in warmer weather so we can sit in the lovely courtyard. Although you can see the sea from the front door that's on the side of the cottage, the window on that side it to high to be able to see the sea which was a shame, but obviously there must be a reason for that. The stars at night were amazing. Complete piece and quiet. Very convenient to get to all different places. We would certainly go back. Owner was very helpful and left us some tea and biscuits which was a nice touch.
