A lovely cottage with comfortable, modern amenities but retains the charm and feel of an old cottage. The bed and sofa were very comfortable which was great for relaxing and the cottage garden was lovely.

A lovely place. A truly magical little cottage perfect for myself and my partner who absolutely loved it. She would like to stay again without a doubt. It was comfy, quaint and private. The pub next door, and I literally mean 25 yards away, is excellent. Altogether a magical weekend.

The cottage was lovely, just right for a couple. It was well looked after, the garden was particularly nice, there were lots of birds. It was close to everywhere so there was so lots to do. Had an excellent micro brewery pub literally 60 paces from front door, served great food and the staff were very friendly.

The cottage was comfortable and was in a nice location for walking with the dog. The proximity of the New Inn was also a bonus as the beer and food were excellent. The pub was a few seconds walk but there was no noise at all. Would return.

Peace and quiet abounded. Fabulous night-time skies, when clear. Magical countryside. Good walks from the cottage, and easy access to the major sights on and around the North York Moors. Superb pub next door serving great traditional food and drinks.
Mrs Miller

The cottage was excellent and the garden a delight to relax in. The location was very quiet with a decent pub serving excellent food and ale in 'stumbling' distance of the property. We would definitely rent this cottage again, maybe try it in the winter as it would be very cosy with the log burner.

The location of the cottage was perfect for walking and exploring the area, with several excellent walks direct from the door. Also, the dog friendly garden was great for us. The cottage was just a few yards from an excellent pub as we had 2 very good meals there, as well as lots of their home brewed ale!

Lovely, homely cottage in a perfect location for us to walk from the door to tour the moors area and coast. Loved the cosy wood burning stove and the enclosed rear garden was a safe place for our dog. Very handy for a great, dog friendly pub which served good beer and food. Have already booked another visit in the spring.
