  • Mr White

    “Brook Cottage is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in - a true home from home.”


    We were warmly welcomed by Marcus and Lyndsay (the owners). Throughout our stay they regularly checked (without being intrusive) if we were ok or if there was anything we needed. They were friendly, hospitable and helpful. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we could possibly need. It was cosy, warm and inviting. The rooms are of a good size and comfortably furnished. It was ideally situated to visit all the local places of interest - Eden Camp at Malton, the lovely town of Helmsley, Jorvik Centre in York, Nunnington Hall (National Trust) and the coast - we went to Whitby. We found some lovely places to eat - Trenchers in Whitby (fantastic fish and chips), The White Bear Inn in Stillington, The Rose and Crown in Sutton-on-the-forest, the Castlegate Tearooms in Helmsley and The Aldwark Arms in Aldwark, near Alne.
