  • "The photos on the website do not do the property justice."

    It is so beautiful. We had a lovely holiday and would like to thank the owners for the freedom given to our dog. He loved it having all that room to run about and explore. The welcome pack was very much appreciated and thank you for the consideration given. All in all a wonderful time in a beautiful surrounding.

    Thank you for your kind words, it makes it all worthwhile. So many dogs love to run free and play with my dogs. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely Christmas stay thank you."

    I would suggest that there is more than enough space for a separate shower in the bathroom. Climbing into a shower over the bath can be difficult for some people.

    The best UK holiday ever. The welcome and hospitality from the owner throughout was amazing. Doggy paradise. We’ve booked again for next year.

  • "Andrea is a fantastic host, and she made sure she checked in with us at convenient times and made sure we felt welcome."

    The cottage was lovely and so are the surroundings, with deer and barn owls to be seen as it is so quiet up there. Runswick Bay and kettleness beach are quiet but beautiful. Whitby Town isn't far away and the best place to park was the co-op car park. We will certainly be looking to return as soon as we can!

  • "Andrea met us when we arrived and was very pleasant."

    We saw her from a distance on a couple of occasions, but didn't get to speak to her again. The cottage is in a lovely spot, very quiet and peaceful and we very much enjoyed our stay there. I would just say that some of the furnishings are looking a little tired, especially the large sofa, and we found the double bed a bit lumpy, nothing that a new mattress wouldn't solve. I don't know if Andrea knows, but one half of the four slice toaster is not working, which may make breakfast a little lengthy with a family of four. Other than that, if we decide to go back, we would choose to sleep in the two single beds, as we are used to a six foot bed and found the four foot six bed a bit tight.

  • "Cottage could have been cleaner !"

    Cobwebs throughout and very dusty. Obviously not the owners priority to clean ! Woken early by dog barking outside door most mornings. Bbq rusty and so obviously not fit for purpose sitting area outside was a wooden bench that was rotting and plastic chairs. I accept it is on a farm but feel more effort could have been taken for the price paid. Certainly not value for money. No starter pack of fuel for log burner. Just a log !! Log burner had not even been cleaned out from last use !Feel very disappointed in the description given for the property feel it was not accurate. The best thing I could say about the cottage was it’s Peaceful location . Would definite not recommend

  • "The location and spaciousness of the property were both great and it was a perfect environment (outside and in) for a dog."

    Comfortable beds/big bathroom - slept really well! Very friendly relaxed atmosphere/owners. It would be helpful to mention in your description that there are two quite deep stone steps up to the front door and one small step inside the cottage between the bedrooms/bathroom and the living area. I took my elderly mother with me as the cottage is described as 'all ground floor' and she did manage with assistance but it wouldn't be suitable for someone who relied totally on a wheelchair.
