Property Description

On the edge of North Yorkshire Moors National Park dating back to the 1800s these charming holiday cottages are set in an idyllic location with uninterrupted views of the open countryside in the beautiful, peaceful village of Brompton by Sawdon. The cottages were built before 1853 in the village that is the birthplace of aeronautics and where William Wordsworth got married. A short drive from the pretty village of Thornton le Dale and the ancient market town of Pickering where one can board the NYM steam train, sit back and relax as it chugs its way through the glorious Esk Valley into Goathland, Heartbeat’s very own village. The ancient sea port of Whitby famed for its connection with Captain James Cook and Bram Stoker’s Dracula and the elegant seaside town of Scarborough are just a short drive. Dalby Forest boasting cycle tracks, bridle paths, off roading and stunning barbecue and picnic areas easily accessed. With golf, fishing and horse riding locally there is something for all the family. Shops 300 yards, pub 2 miles, restaurant 1½ miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Owners very welcoming - and always available for help and advice. (Welcome pack much appreciated). Pretty village, well situated for exploring N Yorkshire. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet and secluded base. May 2012.
  2. Lovely well appointed clean cottage in quiet location. Owner on site could not be nicer or more helpful. We had a lovely relaxing stay. April 2012.
  3. Dragonfly Cottage was great, in a lovely rural location, yet close to civilisation if required! Thoughtful welcome basket awaited us, with delicious freshly laid eggs and home made cake. Lots to do and see within a few miles with Scarborough, Whitby and Filey not far, plus great outdoor pursuits on the door step. Cottage itself very well equipped, everything available and the owners always unobtrusively on hand if required. The beds comfortable and we slept very well indeed. We will definitely return as it is such a lovely part of the country, infact we were disappointed that it is already booked up for the weeks we are available. March 2012.
  4. Beautiful cosy cottage, very well equipped, warm with good central heating and a lovely wood-burning stove. Friendly, pleasant and helpful owners. One of the best cottages we’ve stayed at and excellent value for money. March 2012.
  5. A fantastic little cottage, warm, cosy and perfect for a little break. We will return! Feb 2012.
  6. An exeptional property in a quiet rural location. Places to eat within easy walking/travelling distance. Location is ideal for visiting areas in the North Yorkshire Moors and coastal resorts. A warm welcome from the hosts Jackie and Chris who are on hand should you require anything. A highly recommended holiday cottage to get away from it all, and we will definately be re visiting in the near future. Sept 2011.
  7. The cottage is hidden in a quiet spot with its own garden. It is well appointed with plenty of space for 4 people. The owner is friendly and very helpful. There are many interesting places within easy reach. The pub in the village serves excellent meals at reasonable cost. August 2011.
  8. Cottage was conveniently situated to visit coastal region between Bridlington and Whitby also many inland places of interest. Easy access to the coastal path and the Cinder track as well as moorland and the Dalby Forest. Jackie and Chris made us feel very welcome. June 2011.
  9. We really enjoyed our stay at Dragonfly Cottage, it has a great central location for easy access to York, Scarborough and many attractions. very quiet and peaceful. May 2011.

  11. A very comfortable cottage in a delightful location. We were very well looked after by the owners. Being on a working farm added interest. April 2011.
  12. I liked the way the farm house had been converted and it was all very new inside. The property is open plan and very spacious as a result. Feb 2011.
  13. The accommodation was just like a home from home, we wanted nothing, even an ion was there for us to use ( and a BBQ). Perfect, fantastic, will go again. Feb 2011.

  19. We felt very comfortable from the start, Jackie Grey was so friendly & the cottage is situated in a quiet village but with easy access to the main road, we instantly felt so relaxed on returning to the cottage after a day out. We would not hesitate to holiday there in future. June 2010.
  20. The owner had provided a lot of additional things that showed thought and consideration, e.g children’s toys, books and towels for the beach. May 2010.
