Brilliant stay, beautiful accommodation,lovely people,amazing views and wonderful Whitby. Stanley our dog loved every minute.
Mrs Dowson
April 2015
We had the most delightful holiday. The owners were extremely helpful and very friendly whilst still recognising our privacy as a family. Beech Hill Manor is the most beautiful house in which to stay, with spacious rooms, beautiful furniture, wonderful views and plenty of space for children for football etc. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy a break. Our youngest grandchildren, 10 and 7, absolutely loved the space and trotted around in delight at being in a mansion! Great fun!
Ms Perry
October 2014
A warm and friendly welcome, amazing views and a happy and cosy feel to the manor. Beech Hill Manor surpassed our expectations, its beautiful. Our family (all 17 of us, 4 generations) thoroughly enjoyed our stay and made many unforgettable memories.
Dr Schindler

The manor house is a lovely place for a family gathering. We all enjoyed the time at the manor house but the only thing missing was the butler so I ended up having to do that job!
Mr Lowes
April 2014
The house was amazing, everything you could possibly need was there. It was peaceful and the owner very friendly and helpful. We were able to relax and celebrate my mums 70th birthday in style. Cooking on a real AGA was a dream come true for me.
Mrs Blackmore
March 2014
Great big place to celebrate a family occasion. It was very roomy so everyone wasn't on top of each other, great location.
Mrs Preston
February 2014
This was a beautiful family home and felt like it; the owner was lovely and gave us a fantastic, warm welcome. There was everything you could need and more in the kitchen, the lounges were comfortable and the smaller one a particularly relaxing room. The kids and adults alike enjoyed sitting around the table for family meals. The quality of the furnishing was exceptional. I wish this was my home!
Mrs Hitchings
January 2014
The house is a fantastic family home, and we all enjoyed having a holiday away together. It was lovely having the different rooms and bathrooms allowing us space when needed. The house is in a perfect position and looks amazing from the outside. We loved taking it in turns to cook in the well equipped kitchen on the fantastic Aga.
Mrs Tipper

This property is unbeatable - spotlessly clean, beautiful surroundings and ample space for a large party. The owner is exceedingly friendly and goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. Without doubt, we will be returning.

Miss Bull
November 2013
The owner is a lovely person and makes you feel very welcome. You can tell she is proud of her home, and rightly so. The house is gorgeous, with views to die for. The kitchen and dining rooms are extremely well stocked. The beds are so comfortable, and the cotton bedding lovely and soft. The gardens are brilliant, with plenty of running space for both dogs and kids. This house has a lovely feel about it, and you can tell it has been a much loved family home, and we feel privileged to have been able to spend a wonderful week there. I am sure we will be back!
Mrs Clegg
October 2013
We loved the location and particularly the enclosed garden which was wonderful for the children to play safely and plenty of space for the whole family to play rounders, cricket and football. Lovely spacious accommodation on the whole.

Fantastic location and views, the children loved the garden, adults loved the outside seating areas. Everything you needed for indoor and outdoor use was available. The Forge Public House made us very welcome and provided excellent food and beer.
Mrs Javed
July 2013
The space of this lovely property is fantastic for a family get-together. The garden is beautiful. The view from the house is just breath taking. The kitchen equipment gets 10 out of 10, it had everything one would need to cook and more. We surely will book Beech Hill Manor again in the near future.
Mr Arnold

We were at Beech Hill Manor for a 50th birthday party and we had a brilliant time. The owners were very considerate, the location is wonderful and the property is, in our view, just the thing. We would, and indeed will, visit again!

Mrs Fawcett
January 2012
A massive house, plenty of room for everyone to chill out; the kids were on the landing! Gardens great too for games of football or rounders...and our 2 dogs were very happy. We came for my son's 18th birthday and a memorable weekend was had by all.
Mrs Holland
August 2011
We had a wonderful week with our extended family to celebrate an 80th birthday. The house had everything we needed and we found the owners kind and hospitable and ready to answer any questions and sort things out for us quickly. What a great place to relax. There were many places to visit around the area, too many to fit in one week. We'd gladly recommend Beech Hill Manor as a great lovely place to stay.
Mr Cooper
May 2011
The amount of space in the house and grounds enabled the members of my family to enjoy a great week together without ever feeling we were in each others way. There was always somewhere to go if anybody wanted a bit of peace and quiet. I would have no hesitation in booking this property again or recommending it to friends.
Mrs Bamber
February 2011
The owners where very welcoming and extremely helpful, it was such a pleasure to stay in this property!
Miss Walker
March 2011
I thought the owners were very warm in their approach and extremely helpful. We had a good tour of the building at the beginning to make sure we knew how everything worked. Lots of attention to detail and more than happy to go that extra mile to be helpful.
Mrs Morley

Mrs Simpson

A wonderful property in a superb location. A great way to spend my 40th birthday with family and friends. We will definitely be returning for another holiday soon!
Mr Ollerton
November 2010
The property provided a perfect setting for a large family 'get together'. Even though the weather was awful, we had a great weekend. In part this was because the accommodation offered us scope to be indoors without being in each other's way. There was space enough for children to play indoors.
Mrs Brown
November 2010
A great welcome from the owner to start with and a fantastic house for a big crowd of people of all ages. We were lucky enough to have amazing weather, so the garden and football pitch were well used! The dining room is fabulous as are the lounges. We hope to return to 'Downton' (as we now call it!) sometime in the future.
Mr Langford
July 2010

Mr Mrs Tranter

House was very warm and comfortable. They had gone to a lot of trouble to decorate the house for Christmas and it was beautifully done. It was a pleasant surprise to everyone. The children would say it was a great house for hide and seek! They loved all the space and the jacuzzi. All our family and friends aged 20 months to 78 years had a wonderful time.
Mrs Evans

The location of the property, the friendliness of the owners, the football pitch, gardens and the layout which gave everyone their own personal space if they wished. A perfect location for family gatherings or special occasions.

Mrs Flood

The house was beauiful and the location stunning! The owners were very helpful and friendly and made sure that we enjoyed our family celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary. The house was comfortable and luxurious but still a family friendly place.

Mr Fisher

The house and grounds exceeded our expectations. The house is ideal for large family celebrations because it has a large, well equipped kitchen with a superb Aga. There is a large dining room with a high class table, chairs and ample room to seat 12 comfortably. The bedrooms are spacious and attractively presented. The grounds are ideal for adults to relax in, children to play in (there's even a football pitch) and for dogs to roam in. All our family loved our experience at Beech Manor.
Mrs Wright
October 2008
We loved the location and the outlook over the dales. We had a very special holiday for our mums birthday. Beech Hill Manor is one of the best self catering accommodation any of us have stayed in. The owners were very laid back and friendly. We could not have asked for better accommodation.
Mrs Williams
October 2008
We all had a fantastic stay at this wonderful manor house. The location overlooking the hills was stunning. I would have no hesitation in recommending this house to family and friends. It certainly had the 'wow' factor as soon as you walked through the front door. The owner was the perfect host and couldn't do enough to make our stay a memorable one.
Mr Royle
January 2009
I enjoyed my 60th birthday at Beech Hill Manor and would recommend it to anyone! It ticked all the boxes, ideally situated in gorgeous mature grounds and oozed pure class. Fantastically kitted out and decorated, which reflects on the perfect hosts, who are lovely people and make you feel so much at home. Take my word - you have tried the rest - now try the best!
Mr Wilson
February 2009
Large enough to accommodate our family of 15, able to all be together or spread out. Beautiful setting. Beautiful house but still a family home.
Mr Pugmire

January 2016
Stayed here beginning of December for my husband's 70 th birthday, booked by my daughter as a surprise.There were 5 couples and 5 children comprising of our 4 daughters and their spouses. I'll start with the positives, Great location Beautiful old house Beautifully decorated for Christmas with a big tree in the hallway. Clean beds Great views Impressive dining room. Friendly owner called Mary who greeted us initially as my husband and I were 1st to arrive about 4.30. NEGATIVES As soon as we entered the house there was a strong smell of fuel, were told that they'd had some problems with the boiler and the aga and that the smell would disperse by the following morning, said her husband was up till 1 in the morning that day trying to fix it. She showed us round the rest of the house. Radiator in twin bedded not working, small electric heater instead. Radiator in double bedroom (7ft bed) not working, Had arranged before hand re cot for our 3mth old granddaughter, (as advised on website) couldn't see one, was told there were 2 travel cots under the bed in the double room where the radiator did not work. My husband and I had to take the small twin room downstairs (bearing in mind it was his birthday) as myself being the shortest at 5ft 1in , one of the beds in this room was just long enough for me, my feet touched the wardrobe if I laid flat on my back. This room really only suitable for children so in effect house sleeps 4 couples and their young children/ teenagers at a push. Owner said she would inform her husband re radiator in double room and would be along later to try and fix it. ( we took the heater from the twin bedded up as this was the room the baby was in). Was supposed to return with linen for the travel cot and a tablecloth for the large table in the dining room, never appeared. Saturday, preparing the birthday meal, one son in law went for a bath with the baby, suddenly water started pouring from the ceiling into the kitchen, there was a crack in the ceiling to begin with. A daughter rang the gentleman owner's phone as we were afraid the ceiling would collapse, reply was, won't collapse as I've fixed it! Unable to have a bath in this after. Many of the kitchen trays and pans we had to wash before use, crockery was clean. Kitchen cupboards were generally a bit messy( with exception of crockery cupboards) could do with a good clean. There was a piece of wood fixed to the back of the sink behind the taps which was beginning to discolor and every time the tap was on water seemed to leak from underneath, very unhygienic. As previously mentioned in a couple of other reviews, the house could do with a good clean, I think it's very hard for the lady to keep up with this on her own. Were also told not to bother with the tv's as previous people kept moving monitors and boxes, and probably would not work, this should have been addressed before we arrived. Could go on , but to numerous to mention, What spoilt the whole week end was the smell of fuel, which worsened Sunday night, most of our party left on the Sunday, my husband, daughter, baby and myself left on Monday morning. I looked for the owners , nobody about, my husband rang the owner's mobile and left a message, stating just a courtesy call before we leave and he did state that the week end was spoilt due to the strong smell of fuel. Half way home we received a call from the gentleman owner, in which he stated it should be fixed for the following wk end for a big party that have been coming for years, my husband did say, well that does not help us, we felt that they had ample time to fix this before we arrived as the lady said that there was nobody in the house at least a week before we came. My daughter on her return that day, contacted Sykes to inform them of the problems we'd had and that was not all as advertised. That evening my husband received a call from the gentleman owner, who was a bit "shirty" in his attitude, stating, why had we left negative feed back with Sykes, and we hadn't got the guts to leave comments in the visitors book, To be truthful the visitor book was the last thing on our minds trying to fit everything in the car of baby stuff and to leave the house in reasonable state. We stripped all the beds as we were asked to do( I don't really think that we should be having to do this) as the lady said it saves her about an hour and a half if we did this. Was also told that we had cracked a window in the lounge, ??? We hardly spent any time in there, we sat on the Sat. evening when the children were in bed. Shame, such a lovely house, looks tired, needs modernizing esp. the kitchen. Gave it 3 stars for location and potential.
August 2015

July 2015
Our Golden Wedding celebration was 12 months in the planning and the choosing of Beech Hill Manor as the venue was inspired. The owners, Richard and Mary, were most friendly and accommodating, the house was more than beautiful and grounds were superb. There were 17 in our party and all were of the opinion that Beech Hill Manor was just perfect - the children threatened to hide when it was time to go home!! We found plenty to do in the area and the local pub and eating establishments were ideal. The weather was perfect too which was a bonus. Beech Hill Manor will long be talked about within our family. Thank you so much.
June 2015
Had a great weekend with my friends in this quiet corner of Yorkshire. Excellent views, and nice house which is well equipment to deal with the demands of a large group
September 2014
This property was great for our needs. We used the BBQ a few times, had a formal dinner in the big dining room and explored the local area on foot, including the excellent village pub! The sleeping arrangements were fine seeing as we had young guests who did not mind sleeping five or so to a room. However, we completely agree with the reviewer who commented on the lack of cleanliness and damp in this property. There had been a major leak before our arrival, which was patched up, but we had a leak from the bathroom through to the kitchen during our stay. We didn't like the fact that there were personal belongings (clothes, photos, broken toys) in every cupboard and drawer, and some of the kitchen equipment was greasy and had to be washed before use. The BBQ was also very dirty and there were no cleaning products to clean it with. Quite a number of lightbulbs were not working and there were no spares. We contacted the owner during our stay, about the leak, but as she was visiting her husband in hospital at the time we didn't feel Iike bothering her for the smaller things. We did write a review directly after the holiday, and I hope our comments have been acted upon. With just a bit more care and tidying up this could be a really great rental property.

Beautiful old house in a lovely setting but it badly needs help. The decor was dated and faded. Walls were dirty and mouldy in places. Owners possessions were in every room clothes in wardrobes and drawers etc.... Not the cleanest place either. We were very disappointed. The garden was not private and we were most put out to find someone walking through with their dog. Dirty mouldy dishes in the cupboard. One of the bathrooms had a drain problem and the smell was awful. The sink drain in the kitchen leaked so we came down to a flooded kitchen every morning. Lights didn't work neither did the shaver points. We were not sure when we had to be out but at 11.45pm the lady owner knocked on our kitchen window to tell us we should leave by 10 am. I never yet met the owner though I did go looking for her twice. The gentleman who met us was friendly and showed us around the property then he left and we were on our own for the week. We wont be back
December 2011
We went here to celebrate a family birthday and found the owners to be helpful and generous. The kitchen is amazingly well equipped and everyone loved the magnificent bathroom with jacuzzi bath - a real treat! The gardens are huge with incredible views over the moors and we found lots of places to visit when we weren't just relaxing at home.

We had a wonderful weekend in the most glorious house which we now call 'Downton'! Everything was perfect and because the weather was so good, we made full use of the garden and football pitch.
January 2011
We hired the house for a family weekend. Some of the family thought that it was a bit expensive. However the house provided us with a great weekend despite the weather
