It was beautifully situated, just outside Guisborough, so it feels very rural, yet shops and the town centre were only a few minutes away by car. Had very friendly and helpful owners, a beautiful garden and well equipped kitchen. We had a great holiday and the cottage perfectly fitted our family of 4.

Everything was fantastic, would recommend this cottage to anyone. It was just the place to relax and I will be back again. There was lots to see and do.

Bousdale Cottage is a quiet retreat, in a wonderful setting with excellent walking from the doorstep. The cottage was warm and had a real fire. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. There are plenty of interesting places to visit within a short distance of the cottage. The cottage was nicely laid out, with everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. We will definitely be coming back again.

The very rural location of Bousdale Cottage is excellent for the many local amenities, especially walking and cycling but also has access to local facilities such as shops buses. The standard, finish and comfort in the cottage is excellent in all respects.

We particularly liked the amount of great walks on Bousdale Cottages doorstep. A real dog walking paradise.

This Cottage nestles in the countryside which is stunning. There are plenty of walks straight from the door - brilliant if you have a dog. The cottage itself was really good - very clean and comfortable and the garden was large and well kept with plenty of seating. Its a place we will be going back to - so relaxing.

The owners could not have been more helpful and the cottage was excellent. It was peaceful and quiet with country air. Perfect.

The best holiday cottage we have rented by far. It was perfectly located for lovely walks through woods and hills. Our dog and children loved it. A very quiet place, situated on a farm track but with lots of friendly walkers coming and going by. It was a very short drive into Guisborough for shopping, which is a nice town with everything you need. I can't fault the property, it's immaculate inside and the garden is so pretty. The owner couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. I would love to stay there again and highly recommend it. It was only 15mins to the coast too!

This is a delightful cottage! We were very pleased with it, beautifully presented and we really. The owners were very friendly. The garden and courtyard are pleasant. Overall a lovely weekend away and we will definitely recommend it to friends and family.

The area around the property is lovely. Great walks in the North Yorkshire Moors. The property was close to our son who lives and works in England (we are from Holland).

The property was ideally located within walking distance to shops. It also had beautiful walks right on the doorstep that were dog friendly, such as Guisborough forest just yards away with its dog friendly visitors centre and cafe. Further afield, it was easy to access coastal resorts such as Saltburn, Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay by bus/car. Everybody was so friendly and always ready with a smile and a hello. The cottage itself was just lovely! It was hard to leave at the end of our holiday. Our dog was very relaxed, as were we as it felt like a home from home. The owners were very kind and welcoming, popping in to greet us once we'd settled in. Looking forward to booking our next visit. Thank you.

This was our fourth visit to this cosy cottage which is set in a tranquil location, we really enjoyed every aspect of our week's stay.

The cottage on the edge of Bousdale Forest provides a quiet spot to have a peaceful time but is not too far from the local shops. The owners are very friendly and you are made to feel welcome. The cottage itself is very cosy and well furnished and equipped.

A lovely relaxing cottage, we will definitely be returning at a later date.

Bousdale Cottage was very special. It is in a brilliant location, set right in the middle of an arable landscape and adjacent to woods so there is easy access for walks and to town for provisions.

We really enjoyed the fact that we could take the dogs with us and they were very welcome. There were plenty of lovely long walks on our door step, it was a great place to stay and was easy driving distance to Whitby and Staithes. A very well looked after cottage and the owners were very welcoming and helpful. We had an excellent stay and would certainly return again in the future!

Cottage is ideally situated for walking dogs. No cars around, lots of footpaths from the cottage door into wooded areas. A very peaceful, comfortable place to stay with wonderful views. Also, helpful owners next door and easy access to shops.

This was our second visit this year to Bousdale Cottage. We particularly like the cottage for its cosiness and quiet countryside location, and the fact that it is not too far to the town, about (2 miles). Lots to see and do in the surrounding area, and friendly locals.

Very clean and well equipped property with very helpful and friendly owners adjoining. The location perfect for walkers, dogs and cyclists. Guisborough only about 2 miles away with a busy main street, plus a couple of nearby superstores. In short, just about perfect.

Lovely clean cottage in a quiet location.Very comfortable and ideal if you have a dog. Plenty of places to walk either direct from the cottage or a short car ride away. Another bonus are the empty beaches close by.

A glorious, peaceful location. The cottage felt like home straight away and the views and walks from there were outstanding. Plenty of space for our dog to explore, he's never been so relaxed..or exhausted! Looking forward to returning.

Lovely week, so peaceful and relaxing. Many different wild creatures in the garden. Buzzards overhead. Tranquil meals in the courtyard and easy strolls all around. Double bedroom a little small but as we only slept in it we found it adequate. Will certainly come again

It is hard to describe how good this cottage is, except to say we've already booked a return holiday later this year and it takes somewhere special to make us do that. We stayed with two dogs who were well catered for (and got on well with Snowy) and if one of the main reasons for looking at this cottage is that you want a dog-friendly cottage then this should feature at the top your shortlist. The walks in the nearby Bousdale Woods (even when the Yorkshire weather played true to form) were varied, interesting and excellent for tiring out our Border Collies. You can choose several routes from the doorstep. The cottage was clean (and easy to keep clean even when our dogs came in very muddy), well maintained and has probably one of the biggest and best DVD collections we've come across in a holiday rental. By the way if your dog rolls in something smelly in the woods (as one of ours did) Steve is happy to let you use the hosepipe next door. I think that taught him a lesson (the dog, that is, not Steve)!

My wife and I and my 84 year old mum stayed for week at the end of July. The cottage is gorgeous set in lovely gardens and just at the edge of Guisborough forest. The cottage had everything you could possibly need for an excellent self catering holiday. The beds were comfortable, the whirlpool bath was a luxury. Washing machine and dishwasher :0) Wifi internet provided and a Flat screen TV with USB port - Home from home. The Forest trails were of a range of difficulty to suit , bikers, walkers and families of all ages. The owners were really welcoming and helpful. Aside from the forest areas. there is a pub, The Voyager, within walking or very short drive distance which serves food. It had a different meal and drink deal most nights. Curry night was good and the staff were great. Guisborough is very near and has a range of shops, restaurants and large supermarket. The coastal resorts of Saltburn, Whitby and Robin's Hood Bay are within an easy drive away. Durham and it's Cathedral is about an hour way and ... Roseberry Topping and the moors and their fantastically picturesque villages are on your doorstep. A fantastic place for a short break or longer holiday.

We booked this cottage because it had an enclosed garden and we were taking our dogs. However, the enclosed garden was the owner's garden (they have a dog and two cats) and I felt it was invading their privacy to use the garden so we only used the little patio outside the back door. That was very pretty and I will say we could walk the dogs around the rear of the property and that was very private down a track leading from the public right of way round the edge of the fields so not too much of a problem. The owners were very friendly and helpful and have renovated the cottage to a high standard. The real problem we had was that our dogs are used to being kept in the kitchen at night and, although we put their beds in the kitchen, if you wanted to go to the loo at night from either bedroom you had to walk through the kitchen which actually meant our dogs had free rein to run around all night because shutting them up was pointless!! They loved it but it did mean they kept coming into the bedrooms and, because the floors, very sensibly, are covered in washable timber lookalike flooring, lots of little noisy paddy paws tends to make for a disturbed night. Again, this was not too much of a problem because the owners kindly let them sleep on the furniture which I did cover so that the dogs would not damage anything. They were very miffed on being returned to the kitchen once we got home!! I realise this all seems like a whinge but it is not really, just something that needs to be pointed out if you want a peaceful night and do not need to shut your dogs up. We were a little disconcerted to find that the bathroom had no blind and although it only overlooked the private patio there is nothing to stop anyone from walking past and looking into the window. That might never happen but a little more privacy would be nice! Unfortunately, like most of this Summer, the weather was horrible and after two nights of putting on the heating we decided home would be more comfortable so left early but that is no reflection on the owners or the property. However, now we know the layout of the property, we would probably not return.

We loved the cottage straight away, the location was ideal surrounded by nothing but woods and peacefulness. We visited the moors and also went down to the beach. Everything was within driving reach. The beautiful fire kept us warm when it was wet outside and the jacuzzi bath was brillant.

We spent a very successful week here in the spring with our daughter, baby grandson and two border terriers. With excellent walks just outside the door and shopping only minutes away by car, it served our various needs well. The cottage is comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped. The double bedroom is very small so don't take big cases or loads of clothes because there is very limited storage. However we were able to fit a dog cage in the lobby where our two dogs slept comfortably. We even entertained friends to lunch and the cottage coped well.
