The location is great - lots of open fields around, good walks, peaceful, lovely pub in Ugthorpe. Wonderful beaches at Sandsend and Whitby. The cottage was lovely and warm, we didnt need to use the log burner (which was disappointing as I really wanted to!) The owner popped round shortly after we arrived to make sure everything was ok, which it was. Our two border terriers thought they had died and gone to heaven, had a great time exploring everywhere. Our only problem was that the oven broke down, but am sure it's fixed by now, and I cooked our meal in the aga in the main house. On the list of what's not included in the property there should be added washing up liquid, washing powder and j cloths. Don't mind having to provide my own, but would be better if pre-warned. Although the owner did say that she had provided some items in the past but sometimes they hadnt been used, so wasn't sure whether these should be included. I said yes, but will remember to take some with me next time!
