This is my second year staying in Thorton-Le-Dale and this time was every bit as good as last year.Both cottages were owned by the same family and i decided to try Brookwood cottage only because the other one was fully booked.Everything was just as i expected,great accomodation,very friendly people and the owners,well i can't praise them enough.
Thorton-Le-Dale has to be the best village i have ever stayed in and as i am 60yrs old and travelled,that says something.
A short walk (50yards) you have one of the best bakeries in the country,another 5 yards and a lovely cafe,gift shop and not forgetting the ice-cream parlour,you have got to try it.
The location (and thats if you can find the time to leave the village)is 1st class,Scarborough,filey,Whitby, York and Gothland (heartbeat)are all within a 30 minute drive.
My wife and i are already planning our holiday for 2014 and it is definately in Thorton-Le-Dale.
