We booked a 3 night stay at short notice over Christmas 2012.
We called Bill (the owner) prior to arriving and were given comprehensive directions & key collection instructions.
On arrival Bill came to greet us and showed us around the property, running us through the basics of the heating controls, wifi, TV etc.
A useful book of local information described the local amenities and tourist attractions.
The accommodation itself is comfortable, homely and tastefully decorated. A fully functional kitchen with oven/hob, fridge, washing machine and all the basics in terms of cutlery/crockery and cookware you might need.
Small dining table, sofa and arm chair. TV with freeview finishes the living room.
One double bedroom with a comfy bed.
One room with bunk beds. The bathroom has both a Bath and a very powerful shower above it..
While the properly does have a couple of steps down to the living room/kitchen area it was more than suitable for my wife (who has mobility problems) to get around.
The location is tucked away on a quiet lane and is incredibly peaceful and picturesque.
Handy for local towns including Saltburn By The Sea and Whitby it's also right on the edge of North York moors.
Overall great value for money, friendly hosts and comfortable accommodation.
Ideal base for exploring the area or just lounging around in the cottage itself.
We'll be back.
