  • "Very rural location, which was good as it was quiet, we were able to get out and about to the local places of interests, such as Robin Hoods Bay and the walk to Ravenscar was lovely (along the coast)."

    We had dogs and it was great for them too! All in all it was a lovely venue, it was just disappointing that the Falcon Inn had recently closed which meant we had to drive to eat out, we found the Bryherstone Pub, which was a good venue for food with excellent customer service.

    Cara our host was lovely and very helpful so all in all a great few days away. As an EV owner finding a charging point presented some challenges with Lidl in Scarborough being the closest. The addition of an EV charging point would be the icing on the cake!

    I contacted the owner and asked if she would kindly put a cream tea on for a surprise for my husband before we arrived obviously at an extra cost for which she obliged the cream tea was a big surprise for him and an enjoyable one too. The cottage was beautiful well equipped and clean we would definitely recommend it.

  • "We had a lovely time at Granary Cottage."

    Its nice and quiet in the countryside to close enough to see the sea and visit. We had lots of fun walking and got wet through one of the days but the cottage is so well equipped with all the essentials you could possibly need. I hadnt packed washing detergent as we were only there for 3 days but when we DEFINITELY needed to wash/dry we could. The secure yard was perfect for our dog. Everything was super clean and it was a pleasure to stay there. We will be planning a return trip. The cottage was perfectly located, warm and cosy. We visited at the end of October.

  • "This is a well serviced cottage in a beautiful setting."

    The farm is immaculate. My only issue was the bed, it was a bit hard and I could not get comfortable and the bedrooms were very hot. It was mild for October and we did turn heating off but the bedrooms were stuffy. A great little cottage

  • "Located in the countryside but easy access to Whitby, Scarborough, Robin Hoods Bay and Filey."

    We also were able to enjoy the North York Moors Steam train from Pickering to Whitby and a drive through Dalby Forest. After spending each day out and about it was lovely to return to our cosy cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage set in peaceful countryside surroundings."

    Very small but more than adequate for our week away. Unfortunately we were there before lockdown had been totally lifted (holiday postponed from last year) so none of the local pubs were open for dining out, which meant a fair trek to Scarborough for a take-away. Great for dog walking, though very hilly, as you would expect in the Yorkshire Moors! The cottage had a small enclosed courtyard at the back, so the dogs were completely safe which is a must when I book anywhere. The only thing I would point out is that the stair treads are fairly narrow and a long-handled broom would not have gone amiss. Overall a lovely little cottage in the heart of farmland on the moors. Perhaps a little too remote for us, but that's just a personal opinion.

  • "This is a little gem whose owners clearly have an eye for detail."

    In over 40 years of hiring self-catering properties (2 to 5 times a year) I have never experienced a property which was so well-equipped. Despite being on holiday. I always cook from scratch and usually find that something is 'missing' - but not at Granary Cottage. It was exactly as described and shown in the listing and from the moment I entered I knew it would suit my needs perfectly. Everything was spotlessly clean and well thought out and provided for, plus the location was peaceful. My previous experiences - Often, there is initially disappointment when entering a property and a feeling of being let down. Often, if a property is for 3 people, there are just 3 of everything. Often, equipment is not provided or is well-used and/or mis-matched. BUT I cannot fault Granary Cottage

  • "A welcoming box of hard chocolate toffees was awaiting our arrival, but a small bottle of milk in the fridge so that we could have had tea/coffee would have been more appreciated."

    We found the cottage to be quite dark inside and lacking in natural light . There was no real garden for the dog to roam in just a courtyard type garden. We were expecting to sit outside and look at the view but there was not one.Apart from that we found the cottage well eguipped and comfortable.

  • "Lovely cottage, clean with everything that you could possibly need."

    Granary Cottage is in beautiful surroundings, and the booklet left by the owners gave you instruction of how to find local shops, beaches and eatery's. The cottage itself was fully equipped, we didn't have to take towels, bed linen, tea towels, etc, in fact there was even toilet roll, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets. You really could just unpack and relax. The back yard was a sun trap and excellent for the dogs. I would highly recommend this cottage.

    The location is brilliant it is nice and peaceful with great views not too far away from the main coast towns of Scarborough and whitby right next door to robinhoods bay but You do need your own transport to get about if you don't like walking Plenty of places near by for food and drinks and they allow you to take your dog in with you The cottage is well set out with everything you need to enjoy your stay It could do with a bolt on the back door keeping the two half's together when opening it but that's a minor thing and nothing to worry about A small piont to make is that the local shop 1 mile away from the cottage as advertised is now closed down so you need to travel a way up the road for news papers and supplys The owners are really plesent and don't bother you at all unless you need THEM ( which we didn't ) would recommend staying here and are planning to do so again , later in the year as we had a great time

    Could be made more homely by placing a rug in the living area. Both dishwasher and washer/dryer smelled badly and were in need of a major clean. There were black deposits inside the rubber seal of the washer/dryer door. Space in the main bedroom was limited. Noise from the boiler or the plumbing could be heard often during the night.

    Thank you for your feedback and for your suggestions. We really wish you had informed us of that you felt there was a smell coming from the dishwasher and washer/dryer. We clean this every week so are surprised at these comments. We have never had any negative feedback in relation to the boiler or plumbing work but we have checked this and there are no problems. Thank you for providing this feedback to us again and we hope you had a great holiday. Property Owner
