  • "We enjoyed a family holiday here and would be quite happy to return."

    The owner was very helpful when we got lost due to the closure of a bridge, he was also very helpful when my son wanted to take the family out without having to take the dog with them. Just a very small point, could you supply either a mitt or pair of gloves to use for the log burner, to open the door when putting another log in.

  • "Wonderful place to stay."

    Beautifully appointed, clean, well stocked with utensils, etc. Brilliant location for North Yorkshire and York. Good tips on the chalkboard for things to do and places to eat. Simon was really helpful and welcoming.

  • "Lovely cottage perfect for a winter break Simon and Jayne greeted us and had lit the log burner ready, so the cottage was lovely and warm."

    Beds very comfortable slept well. The cottage is like a tardis inside much bigger than we thought. Kirkham Abbey down the road, closed in winter but we still stopped and had a look and we went to the pub there too very good they did food as well.. We visited Castle Howard at Christmas (booked tickets in advance) it was magical and also had a day In York . We drove to the park n ride at Grimston Bar which takes you into York. So easy! We had little problem couldn't work the shower but Simon was very good and answered the phone straight away and told us how to do it over phone. Senior moment we had! We would recommend and stay again. It would be even better in summer as the area is very beautiful.

  • "Our stay was amazing!"

    ! Simon was a great host and very helpful. The cottage was very homely, the beds were extremely comfortable, the facilities were perfect, we loved the blackboard with all the ideas of things to do and where to visit, and the log burners made our stay very cosy! If we ever need somewhere to stay in North Yorks we'll certainly look you up. Thanks from us all

  • "A perfect quiet village hideaway with everything we needed and a great host."

    Parking immediately outside was easy. Easy access to York, the coast and the moors. A comfy, quirky cottage with lots of split levels and low beams. Ideal for 4 people (sleeps 6 in 3 double rooms) but the lounge would be a squeeze with more than 4 people. WiFi and TV both good and loads of space throughout the property. Pretty small courtyard with plenty of seating and totally secure for the dog. Loads of hot water, comfy beds and well equipped for cooking. Simon was a great host and there are a lot of extras provided like board games. It would be useful to have a non-stick frying pan, tumble drier, and a better ironing board/iron. We made good use of the washing machine with all our muddy walking gear and there is a drying rack. The bathroom floor would be better with lino rather than carpet and this is the only thing that I think should be changed to make the property even better - a minor point as it is a great place to stay!

    The bedrooms were beautifully decorated with lovely touches throughout the house. My bed was so comfy! Everything you needed was in the house and would highly recommend booking your stay here. Also a great location for walks with the dog, and a park for the kids, only 30 mins to york too!

  • "A lovely stay and many thanks Simon."

    We would thoroughly recommend for anyone who would like to visit North Yorkshire with a dog and family. We were in a quiet village but fairly close to York, Malton, Pickering and the North Yorks Steam Railway/Moors. Some great pubs towards Malton for Sunday roast also. Very relaxed - a little like staying at a relatives house.

  • "We arrived very late but messaged Simon the Owner, who arranged key access for us and left lights on."

    The cottage was lovely , plenty of room , well equip, two fridges, and super comfy beds and bedding. The shower was excellent and we had everything we needed, including games etc. Simon and his wife Mandy displayed a lovely pub type menu on the wall of places to go... and each one did not disappoint. We drove from Southampton and was worth the drive. The local pub Blacksmith Arms are super friendly open from wed to Sunday and the food is fantastic, book in advance . Castle Howard, York and Eden Camp worth visiting.. excellent area for pony trekking.. A lovely cottage would return! Thank You

About the location


Howardian Hills AONB 14 miles; Leeds 25 miles; North York Moors National Park 25.4 miles.

The city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums(including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Explore York’s quaint streets and hidden corners, or take an excursion further afield to the Dales, Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Yorkshire is rich in stately homes, with Harewood House and Castle Howard just two of several within an hour’s drive. A cycling city boasting two theatres, character pubs and great shopping, York has it all.
