“Lovely peaceful cottage, spotlessly clean and very cosy.”

Lovely, cosy little cottage - a perfect holiday home. Tracy was so helpful with booking and we got a lovely warm welcome from her and her husband with the key when we arrived. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The welcome hamper was very thoughtful and much appreciated.

I left my dressing gown when we left and Tracy very kindly posted it back to me without wanting payment. Genuinely friendly, helpful owners whose generosity of spirit is evident in their lovely house.

Loved the cottage, loved the area, especially Whitby and will definitely be back.

“Relaxing, luxurious, homely cottage”

It is with sadness that we are just getting ready to leave this beautiful cottage and wish we had time to stay for more than 3 nights. The house is equipped with everything you need to help,you relax and enjoy your stay at this home from home.
From contacting the owner for booking, till leaving, everything ran smoothly, Tracey met us on our arrival and gave us a quick run down on the heating system. She has already lit the lovely living gas fire in the living room giving us an extremely warm welcome.
The furnishings and equipment provided are to a very high standard.
The added bonus is the summerhouse overlooking the river which is a lovely place, we spent a couple of early evenings reading, enjoying a glass of wine, even in Ocotober.
We would definitely recommend this cottage and do hope to return.

A very friendly welcome from Tracy. A greeting hamper provided and an explanation of where and how everything works. This an ideally situated property for a really relaxing holiday in very private and rural setting yet within easy reach of local amenities and a short drive from Whitby.The accommodation offers first class facilities, is comfortable and furnished to a high standard..We enjoyed our holiday immensely and would not hesitate to recommend this property. as a holiday location. We will definitely return in the future.
