  • "Excellent cottage, will stay again for sure."

  • "One of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in, well designed, well equipped and well maintained."

    We have tried hard to come up with any suggestions for improvement but the only thing we can think of is that a small shaving mirror in the bathroom would be useful

  • "We were a little miffed by the welcome pack, we never saw or heard from the property owner whilst at the cottage, just a hello and introduction would have been nice."

    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

    Also ideal for stargazing as very dark at night. I cannot fault the cottage in any way and the welcome pack was delicious. Thank you for such lovely accommodation.

    It's location is excellent, wonderful views of unspoilt countryside and sea. Central heating very good , and wood burner easy to use. Would definitely return and highly recommend to friends and family.

  • "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.

    It is a warm, cosy cottage with a fantastic wood burning stove. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with many of the 'essentials' already provided by the owners. Lovely welcome pack provided on arrival - much appreciated! Great location for exploring North Yorkshire coast and surrounding area. Highly recommended! Sheila and Dave.

    Garden was a little sun trap in the afternoon even though the sun is now getting low so I should imagine it's lovely in summer. Overall a fabulous little place which we wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

    Wonderful views across to sea from front door. We found the location excellent for access to the Cleveland way & Cinder track which links Scarborough & Whitby so we enjoyed several loop walks including from cottage to Hayburn Wyke waterfalls, from Ravenscar to Robin Hoods Bay and Cloughton to Scarborough. The owner Cara was very helpful and left us a lovely welcome gift of tea, biscuits and cake. Facilities in the cottage were very good, modern kitchen, large bathroom with lovely underfloor heating. Just down the road was a roadside vegetable stall which worked on an honesty box system you could get fresh eggs, fruit & veg even freshly baked cakes! We had a really relaxing week at Dairy Cottage and would recommend staying there.
