Our good experience with Tranmire Cottage in the utterly delightful North York Moors village of Lastingham started with phone calls to the owner who lives next door -- it is wonderful to be able to deal with on-the-spot owners who are helpful, cooperative and welcoming. This attitude continued during our stay. "Trouble with the Internet? I'll be right over!" The cottage is spacious and exactly as described in this beautifully renovated home, with all modern conveniences, with beautiful bedrooms and baths, with comfortable furniture and plenty of storage space, sitting space, eating space and lots of dishes, cooking equipment, and appliances. And as a big bonus, the garden is lovely, full of flowers and bushes and trees; weather was great so days started with tea in the garden and ended with evening night caps there. Views are wonderful -- trees, pastures, sheep and just a short walk up the lane is open moorland with wonderful walks. In the village is a fine pub and the fascinating St Mary's church with its Saxon apsidal crypt. We definitely would return-- one of finest rentals we've done in UK. Our only suggestion would be for more seating in the lovely garden--maybe done comfortable outdoor furniture for relaxing and reading. There were only 4 chairs around a small table for a cottage that sleeps six , thus limiting use of magnificent garden.
