The cottage was absolutely lovely, it was warm, comfortable and quiet. It is set in a very tranquil rural location, but it's easy to get to some of the fab places around the North York Moors. Would highly recommend.
Poppy cottage is a lovely barn conversion with great character on a fantastic small holding. The owners were very welcoming and it was lovely to be surrounded by their quirky animals and the beautiful countryside. Perfect location for exploring the North Yorkshire Coastline and Moores. Highly recommend, we will be back!
Excellent cottage, location and hosts. Highly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Poppy Cottage. The cottage was great and the location was superb, the views were out of this world.
We loved the idyllic, tranquil location of Poppy Cottage and the kindness and helpfulness of the owners. The property was immaculately clean and extremely well-equipped. All our needs for a comfortable break were more than catered for. It provided us with the perfect retreat from which to explore such a picturesque area of the British Isles.
A great quiet location with exceptional views, and Whitby was only a short drive away.
A lovely weeks holiday in a comfortable cottage with informative and friendly hosts. An excellent place for walking in the North York Moors and coastal footpaths. We will return.
A well-equipped comfortable cottage in peaceful and scenic surroundings. Very friendly owners. Well placed for trips to Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay.
Very relaxing and quiet. Owners were very welcoming and friendly. Spotless and had all two people would need for a break away from it all.
There was a warm and friendly welcome. Superb setting and the cottage was first rate, clean and well equipped for two people. Nothing was too much trouble whilst I was there. Helping me with local knowledge about footpaths and places of interest without which my holiday would have been much less interesting. The area is so very beautiful and I most surely will return very soon. Thank you to the family and I hope to see you real soon.
