It was a lovely peaceful location in a quiet village/hamlet. The cottage had everything you needed and as we took our two dogs the garden was ideal as it is large and enclosed. It was a lovely relaxing holiday and we hope to return to this part of Yorkshire as there is lots to see in the area.

Lovely, spotless, modernised cottage in a delightful area, ideal for exploring the Yorkshire North Moors. Very warm welcome by owner. Very effective heating during the cold snap we experienced, comprising gas central heating and a gas fire log effect log burner.

The cottage is an ideal place for 2 to get away from the noise of roads etc. It was so quiet and peaceful there. It is in a beautiful setting, ideal for walks but near enough to other places to eat out or visit. We will definitely book it again.

Peg's Cottage was lovely, cosy and perfect for our winter short break. The area is beautiful and would definitely return. We were made to feel very welcome.

We liked the situation. Although we didn't use the garden because of the weather, in the summer it would be a huge bonus. There was a good selection of books about the area and DVDs for cold, wet evenings. In all we had a very good time in Pegs Cottage.

A beautiful, compact and cosy cottage in a picturesque little hamlet. Perfect for myself and my wife for a relaxing long weekend. The dogs loved the huge, enclosed garden. The owner was very helpful and informative, letting us know of the amenities in the surrounding area, which was useful as the hamlet is residential only (as we wanted I must add).

Peg's Cottage is a beautiful home from home set in the peace and quiet of a tiny village. The gas log burner ensured that even though the weather was chilly we were as warm as toast inside. The garden is completely secure so we knew our dog couldn't escape. There are many walks both right from the doorstep and only a short drive away.

We have been to many cottages in Yorkshire over the last 30 years but in Peg's Cottage we have found a real jewel in the crown. It had everything you needed, was clean tidy, extremely comfortable and set in beautiful gardens and a wonderful rural setting. It was very doggy friendly which for us is a bonus, and the owner was warm, welcoming and friendly. A very pretty village with friendly locals. A real home from home and we will certainly go back without hesitation. We had a truly wonderful stay.

This was one of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in. Very well equipped and warm and cosy. Owner was very friendly and welcoming and it was very dog friendly. Would recommend this cottage highly.

Peg's Cottage is in a lovely quiet location close to Helmsley, which is a very attractive country town. The cottage is pet-friendly and the garden is secure and safe. The owner and her dogs are very friendly and welcoming. We were there during cold weather but the cottage is warm and cosy.

The cottage was lovely... very snug and warm. The gas fire in the lounge was perfect for cold winter days we hardly needed the central heating despite it being very cold and frosty outside. The information on the area was welcome and we made use of the pack giving details of nearby walks. Tonia was welcoming but not intrusive and left us doggy bags dog bowls and chews for our two dogs. We stayed over Christmas amp; I was able to cook a full xmas lunch in the well stocked kitchen. Overall we had a lovely relaxing break.

We were well looked after by the owner without her being intrusive. The accommodation was perfect for what we wanted - a cosy, comfortable, quiet and peaceful time. The area is delightful for country walks and exercising our dog.

We loved our stay at Peg's Cottage! The cottage itself was perfectly sized for myself and my boyfriend. We took along our dog too and she had a great time. It was in great driving distance of the local town but we had a real sense of isolation too.

Pegs cottage is a lovely cosy little cottage, was spotlessly clean and we were made very welcome including our dog who had a great time, will be visiting again, would defiantly recommend.

We stayed at Pegs Cottage for a weekend break. We were not disappointed the reviews were true. The owner was very helpful when I rang to arrange the key pick up,she also provided fresh milk tea and coffee. She has two beautiful dogs and your dog will be made welcome. The bungalow has level access which made it easy for my disabled husband. The rooms were spotless and the ceasefire was so hot we only needed it on low to warm both the lounge and bedroom. The shower does have a high ledge but my husband managed to get in with my help,would have been better if I had his shower stool. The village of Pockley is so pretty with chocolate box thatched cottages mingled in with the other properties. If it had not rained all weekend we could of had some lovely walks from the property. Will definitely go back next year. Also can highly recommend the Helmsley Spice Indian restaurant and take away, the meal we had was first class.

We have just returned from a week at Peg's Cottage. It's a lovely cottage, all very new and nicely decorated. The cottage is ideal for couples as it has only one double bedroom, with open storage space, and a small hanging space, open shelving and a corner dressing table, with mirror, there is a lamp on the dressing table and wall lights above the bed, the bed has extra storage below, which makes it a bit of a hard bed to sleep on. The shower is raised and has a folding door, this would not be suitable for anyone who needed level access shower, I had the help of my Partner to get in and out of the shower, the grab rail is placed too far back on the wall, nearer to the corner, away from the shower, it is very nicely tiled and has a toilet and handbasin, along with a heated towel rail, that warms the bathroom, there is a basin light with shaver point. The bungalow has laminate flooring, in the hall, lounge and bathroom, the bedroom has fitted carpet, and the kitchen has quarry tiles, with a bit of a lip between the lounge and kitchen floors, a bit of a trip hazard. The lounge is spacious with a two seater sofa, and arm chair, small TV, coffee table, and table with the TV on, a pine dining table and two dining chairs, ideal for eating breakfast and dinner. The kitchen is WOW, its a lovely kitchen anyone would love to have in their home, it has plenty of saucepans, baking sheets, and other ovenproof dishes, gorgeous work services, and a lovely deep sink with laboratory style mixer tap, microwave, electric cooker, toaster and coffee maker, washing machine and fridge, all the essentials you could need, however, a few little things like colander, grater, which would be a bonus. The cottage is centrally heated, but the icing on the cake is the gas fire, in the style of a log burner, which on a cold night would be heaven, we did try it a couple of times, and it took minutes to warm the place up, I wish we had one at home, its gorgeous. As this is her first year doing a holiday let, I can say she has thought of everything, the secure on site parking, double glazing, comfy sofa, fluffy towels, constant/instant hot water, are a big plus in a holiday cottage. When we go back to Yorkshire we will definitely book Peg's Cottage, its a safe secluded and quiet bolt hole, ideal for a relaxing holiday without constant traffic and ideal for star gazers, as no street lighting to mar the view of the sky at night. Its only 2 miles from Helmsley town centre, which has ample shops, CO-Operative, Cost Cutter, as the supermarkets, the smaller shops are a deli selling loads of cheese, olives, cooked meat, pies, bread and a wealth of pickles, jams, spreads and cakes, voted the "Best Little shop in World" and a few other small shops, selling fruit and veg, original sweetshop, gifts , jet workshop, jewellery, newsagents, flowers and clothing, for the more decreeing, there is a a Brewery, which has a shop and also does brewery tours, of the brewing process, not far from this is the Birds of Prey Centre, we didn't get chance to visit, but we will next time, there are pubs, restaurant's and take a ways, Fish and chips, and a department store Browns, and for that really special gift, they have a shop Monsoons for Moorcroft, and it is the real deal, along with antiques shops and all the usual gift shops, Friday is Market Day, we tried the Chocolate Brownies, made local, they were to die for, along with the antique stalls and the usual weekly market stalls, Helmsley is the place to visit and to stay at Peg's is perfect, relaxing, quiet and ideal for that special get away. AS Tonia has two lovely dogs, its ideal for anyone who likes pets, the dogs are gorgeous, and well behaved, its the new jewell in the crown of the Yorkshire Dales, one not to be missed. Check it out!!! you won't be disappointed, I promise you.
