We particularly liked the peaceful setting of the Longstone Cottage, and the friendliness of the owner. Our little granddaughter enjoyed the horses and running round outside! Overall, we had a great holiday.

The owners were very helpful and friendly. We loved the cottage, it was perfect for our family and 2 dogs. It was ideally located, just far enough from Whitby to feel relaxed and private, but only a short drive to attractions. We will definitely be back.

We're just back from a week at Longstone Cottage and what a week it was! This is the ultimate place for dogs. The owners were lovely, friendly people. The views over the North Yorkshire countryside are stunning. Boasting a superbly big open plan living room, the wonderfully-warm cottage is a brilliant base for touring the sensational North Yorks coastline as well as the fabled moors.Ten out of 10.

The location of the property was great with easy access to lots of lovely walks. Whitby, Runswick Bay, Staithes are all lovely. The Humble Pie N Mash shop in Whitby is a must and it is dog friendly too. The cottage was very cosy with lots of room. I liked the wooden flooring throughout as this is perfect for our dog. It was very peaceful and relaxing!

In a beautiful quiet location but close enough to Runswick Bay and Whitby for long walks with the dog. The cottage was of a high standard with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely cottage with everything you could need in a lovely location. Made to feel really welcome by the owners, liked it so much stayed a few days extra.

This was a really brilliant holiday and one of the best places we have ever stayed at. We were made very welcome without being intrusive. Its setting and layout could not have been better. The whole holiday went far and above our expectations (and experiences of past self catering holidays). The whole ethos of the place including visiting dogs and animals made it a place where we could really relax and enjoy our holiday. Would recommend this venue and its host to anyone and everyone. Thank you for finding us such a lovely spot and our thanks too our helpful host.

The location of the cottage was wonderful, the views were beautiful and it was very peaceful. It was only a short drive to the beach and there are some excellent places to visit within a relatively short drive. The host was very welcoming and friendly. I would definitely visit again.

We loved the setting of the house; the cows grazing in front of the kitchen windows, the very friendly owners..we felt completely at ease with our kids and our dogs - a real Holiday!

A great location and large spacious rooms.
Mr Reynolds

Everything. The owner was excellent as a host and personally for us the cottage and surroundings were perfect for our first family holiday. Being able to interact with the animals on the farm was lovely for our little boy and you are ideally situated for various locations such as Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes, Scarborough etc. The interior of the cottage was spacious and beautifully furnished to make you feel relaxed. I would recommend this cottage to anyone without hesitation.

It was a very peaceful property. The owner was very friendly as were the dogs and horses. The layout was super and having all the kitchen, diner and lounge area as one room was lovely - very snug and cosy! The bedrooms and bathroom being shut off from the living space would be great for families with young children. The cottage was very well equipped right down to a superb set of sharp knives, a detail often overlooked in holiday cottages. Would definitely stay here again!

I liked the remoteness, being quiet and the cottage itself. I took my radio controlled plane and they let me fly it on their land. Very friendly owners, didn't bother us but were there if we needed anything.

We recently had a short break at Longstone Cottage near Whitby and can only say that from the moment we arrived until we left was truly wonderful.On arrival we were greeted by the owner who showed us around the cottage which was very modern and extremely well fitted out there was nothing that had not been thought of.The location of the cottage was very quite and relaxing and ideal for traveling around the Yorkshire moors.We would definitely book this cottage again and would recommend it as a very good place to stop.

We couldn't have picked a nicer cottage , it was very large and our daughter and partner also came for a few days so there was plenty of room for us all . The views are amazing and I loved watching the sunrise and sunset . They have horses in the fields and the owner has 4 dogs which are very friendly especially if you have got a packet of biscuits on the go lol . We saw deer in the field and watched a sparrow hawk , plus a nighttime visit from the barn owl fabulous . The owner welcomed us and is very friendly and we would recommend this cottage to anyone we loved and enjoyed every minute of our holiday .

We (2 adults, 1 child and 1 dog) stayed here for a week, the cottage is really spacious and homely and well located for trips to both the coast and the moors. The views from the front windows are amazing and my daughter loved the horses, dogs and cows. The cottage had everything we needed for the week with walks available from the doorstep. It was great that the cottage had wood floors throughout so we didn't have to worry about getting footprints on carpets due to the wet weather we had during our week. One of the nicest cottages we've stayed in whilst in North Yorkshire.

Very friendly owners, spacious property, and set in a good location.

The property is in an idyllic position in the countryside and also very close to the beaches. Local walks are excellent and ideal for walkers and dog walkers alike. It was nice to come back to the log burning stove in the evening. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We shall be booking again - highly recommend this place!

We're just back from a week at Longstone Cottage - and what a week it was! This is the ultimate place for dogs. We took our two sheepdogs, Izzy and Murray, and they loved it to bits. Being on a farm they ran round the cottage till their hearts were content. Owners Andrea and Martin, lovely, friendly people, have four dogs of their own - and they're all great. The wooden floors and furniture were all dog-friendly as long as you treat the cottage with respect and clean up after you. The views over the North Yorkshire countryside are stunning and we saw deer as well as hearing the haunting cry of the elusive curlew all day long! Boasting a superbly big open plan living room, the wonderfully-warm cottage is a brilliant base for touring the sensational North Yorks coastline as well as the fabled moors. We had snowstorms, hailstones and downpours as the thermometer dipped below zero! But we took it all in our stride with the help of Longstone Cottage and had a week we'll never forget... Ten out of 10!!

Quiet location, beautiful views, the dogs absolutely loved it, the owner was very friendly and helpful, there is a good local pub only 1 mile away, and there are lots of places to go and see within a few miles. We will definitely consider returning!

We arrived on the Friday and were 'blown away' with the views from this cottage. It's a great location for kids.......plenty of space for them to run around. The owners dogs were regular visitors which the kids loved. The horses in the nearby fields were also well fed! We did spot a deer in the far field too! Our days were spent at the various beaches which were a short drive away. Sandsend is close by, as is Robin Hoods Bay and Runswick Bay. As we went in peak season, parking was sometimes an issue so get out early to grab a parking spot! Cottage was really well stocked and comfortable. As we had 2 birthdays during our week there, we were grateful to have a well stocked kitchen to bake birthday cakes. Owner was lovely and friendly, nothing too much trouble. My only one complaint was the lack of internet access. Other than that, we had a great week and would like to come back and visit again sometime!

Booked this cottage for our group for a few days to include our NYE celebrations for 2014. We spent quite a bit of time beforehand looking for a nice open plan space so that our group of 4 adults, 2 children, 1 infant and our small dog had room to relax. Longstone Cottage was a great choice - have to say that the pictures of the living area don't do it justice, the space is superb. Bedrooms are a reasonable size consisting of a double and twin, and lots of storage which was good. The owner had also made the effort of putting up xmas decorations which was a nice touch. The blokes in the group also took mountain bikes to explore the area a little bit, if you're in to some serious hill climbs I would recommend! We were hoping to take advantage of the local pub as it had received some good reviews, but found it just a little too far away to walk on an evening and the road to/from was a little trechorous for kids and a pushchair. Worth bearing in mind if that's important to you. Overall this is one I would recommend and may well book a return trip in the future.

We have stayed in this cottage 8 times now and have booked 2 long weekends before the end of the year! We have stayed at many so called dog friendly cottages and found fully them fully carpeted, usually in white, anything but dog friendly. This cottage has wooden floors throughout and is exceptionally spacious so everyone, inc the dogs have a truly relaxing time. we have stayed here in the spring, summer and autumn and had wonderful holidays, but December is the best, when the cottage is decorated for Christmas, it's perfect, all log burners and cosy warm. I have hesitated to write a review as we have recommended it to our friends and family and, as we like to come here often, it may be fully booked! if getting away from it all is your idea of bliss, this place is perfect

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!
