  • "Snowdrop Cottage had everything you needed for a great stay."

    The cottage was spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped. As somebody who has to have a dark bedroom, the shutters on the windows were a bonus as this made the room dark and relaxing ready for a good nights sleep. The beds were comfortable and even get a choice of pillows. The extra touches that Christine & Steven had thought off, ie plenty of tea towels, condiments, washing up liquid to name a few, were very appreciated as these are things you either bring or have to buy. Christine's communication was excellent, with a great knowledge of the area. The weather for our stay was not great, so we did not get to do any of the walks from the cottage, and also missed out on some other suggestions, so we are looking to come back next year.

  • "We loved our stay at Snowdrop Cottage!"

    Bruno, our poodle did too! The cottage had everything we needed. The view from the windows over the woodland, carpeted in snowdrops was spectacular and the cottage in a very peaceful location. We hope to go back next year and have a longer stay. A lovely welcome tray when we arrived and the owner of the cottage very helpful. Thankyou!

    Thank you Pam. I'm glad you got to see the snowdrops. I always feel an inner calm when I see them; one of nature's lovely gifts. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay in this cottage with our two little dachshunds from 22 to 29 September 23."

    It is well appointed and met all our needs. In a quiet location yet in easy reach of all amenities. A real gem.. We looked forward to returning to the cottage after our days out as it is really comfortable and cosy. Similarly we were able to hunker down when the weather was inclement. Fortunately the weather was largely kind and we were able to go out and about. The location afforded us easy access to the coast. We had enjoyable trips to Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. These are traditional resorts, maybe not on trend these days, but we love them. We also had some enjoyable drives inland off the beaten track. Lovely dog walks were had from the cottage door. Marvellous times and we are already planning our return . Highly recommended.

  • "We have just returned from a 7 night stay at Snowdrop Cottage."

    The Cottage is off a quiet lane in a courtyard with some other cottages. There is parking outside the gate with a shingle small front garden which is secure for dogs. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need and extremely comfortable. The beds have luxury bedding and very comfortable. There are several dogs walks directly from the cottage across fields on public footpaths and the surrounding area has some lovely bays and countryside for dog walks or visits. There are at least 4 pubs within 10 min drive which serve good food and some local beers. We can not recommend Snowdrop cottage enough for a relaxing break and will certainly return in the future.

    The bed was the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. The welcome gifts for us and our dog were appreciated. The cottage is well equipped with everything we needed for our stay, very clean and cosy with a log burner fire and plentiful supply of logs. The location is excellent for both the coast and moors area with lovely dog walks on the doorstep too. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending this cottage to others.

  • "We had a lovely time at Snowdrop cottage."

    It is a good location that was handy for the coast, Dalby Forest and the N Yorks steam railway. The cottage itself was warm and the beds were very comfortable. The duvets, pillow, towels were lovely quality. The kitchen was well equipped to a very good standard. It was very generous with extras like condiments, cooking oil, tea towels, cling film and a welcome cake and bottle of milk. Only thing I would suggest, would be a bottom stair gate to stop the dogs running upstairs. Slight problem with the doors being a bit “hingebound” and having to lean on them to close them properly. But a lovely place to stay and would definitely recommend.
