The cottage was perfect, no problems at all, the overall standard was excellent and we are planning to return. It was pet friendly and had a wonderful garden for the dog to run around in. The holiday in general was lovely and the countryside beautiful, there is so much to see and not enough time to see it all.

The cottage was extremely high quality and very well equipped. It was so comfortable you could easily live there! The owner was easy to get hold of beforehand and very friendly and helpful.

The owner was very welcoming, hospitable and friendly. The cottage was of a very high standard and perfect for us and our dog. It was comfortable, very well appointed and peaceful with a lovely area to sit outside. The garden is very large and there is dog walking almost next door. There is a pub, excellent fish chip shop and butcher within 100 metres and a shop a little further.

Upstairs Downstairs Cottage is a beautiful holiday cottage, tastefully decorated and furnished. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Ideal base for exploring both the coastal towns and the moors. Local Fish & Chip shop within walking distance, well worth a visit.Lots of nice pubs within easy driving distance - no need to waste time cooking!! Good dog walking areas close by.
June 2014
From the moment we arrived at the cottage, my husband and our two year old son felt totally at home. We were greeted by Dan, the owner, who couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. The cottage is finished to a very high standard with beautiful oak beams, wrought iron staircase, and beautiful bathroom and bedrooms. Outside, there is a small balcony with stairs leading to patio area, then across a stone chipped courtyard to a paddock - my husband and son found it for playing football! There is a chip shop, and convenience store within a two minute walk, and a lovely pub a 5 minute walk away ( the coachman) The local villages within a few minutes drive are equally lovey, and it is very easy and quick to get to Scarborough, York and Whitby. If you have children, the fact that flamingo land is a 15 minute drive is a pretty good perk! We would highly recommend staying here, and can't wait to book our return trip!
