Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Without a doubt a truly fantastic cottage, absolutely spotless & extremely well equipped. Ideal for adult families but not recommended for children between the ages of 2 to 5 only due to the property being next to an unguarded river & steps leading down to the garden area. All credit to the owners for making this property what it is. April 2012.
  2. The cottage was beautifully clean, very comfortably furnished and extremely well equipped. The location is ideal - in a lovely village and only about 4 miles from Scarborough. The Summer House is a great addition and the view from the back of the cottage is wonderful. March 2012.
  3. Beautiful view across the river. Lovely summer house and garden. Pity about weather did not get to enjoy the garden. Sept 2011.
  4. The location was stunning as were the views from the property. The garden was fantastic according to my boys and my husband loved the fishing. One evening he spotted an otter swimming in the river! The cottage was stylish, practical and spacious. Everything we could have wished for from a cottage! Aug 2011.
  5. Five star***** Sept 2011.
  6. Very pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness,the comforts,and the quiet of this cottage. The river is closer to the house than it appears in the photo, adding much grace and interest to the property. Horses, pheasants, and hares play over the green fields just the other side of the water. Swallows fill the evening air. Aug 2011.
  7. The highest point was the garden and lovely view across the valley. This meant that, even though the weather was very mixed, we were able to enjoy the views and summer house. We did not feel the need to go out. June 2011.
  8. A characterful property, decorated and furnished very sympathetically with this character but without any compromise on equipment or accommodation. Oct 2010.
  9. It was so well stocked with unexpected items (handsoaps/spare bulbs/batteries/torches/etc.) that it was obvious the property is not just a holiday let. Very thoughtful brochures/local maps [wouldn’t have bought one had I known!]. Kitchen was brilliant; every household item one could possibly want so definitely home-from-home in that respect. Very well equipped right down to dishwasher tablets. Aug 2010.
  10. Lovely cottage with great garden and excellent position. Aug 2010.
  11. Wonderful site on river and ducks to feed. Useful summerhouse providing additional seating area. July 2010.
  12. It was the best cottage we have stayed in for the provision of all of those little things you always forget to take with you. Sept 2009.
  13. Views are amazing. Caretaker could not be more helpful. This was our second visit and we may go back as wonderful area for seaside, walking, fishing and Flamingoland! June 2009.
  14. Lovely cottage and location, is it for sale? April 2009.
  15. The garden was superb. June 2009.
  16. Lovely cottage very spacious with excellent garden and everything u could ever need provided. Aug 2009.
  17. The setting is fantastic for a laid back holiday. Local amenities within easy distance. June 2009.
  18. A clean and very well equipped cottage in a great location. We had a lovely week and hope to go back. Sept 2008.
  19. We looked at the photographs on the web site. We were delighted with the cottage. Sept 2008.
  20. Fabulous garden, the children made full use of it as well as the stream. Views were beautiful and wildlife abundant. July 2008.
