“Fantastic - cant wait to return”

We stayed at Underhill Holiday Cottage in March 2015 It is very peaceful (yet close enough to the main road to get to Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors) You have to go over two cattle grids and down a very steep track to get to the cottage but that gets easier the more times you travel up and down it. The cottage was spotlessly clean and it was very comfortable with every thing you should need there was even a little welcome pack and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. There are some stunning countryside views across the valley from the cottage. We could not have wishes for any thing else to make our weekend complete. This is one cottage we shall return to time and time again

“Excellent cottage”

My wife and I travelled to the North Yorkshire Moors for the annual war weekend. The cottage was in excellent condition, very well appointed and the location idyllic and quiet. As a base to explore the moors, Whitby or the coast I can only highly recommend it

We stayed at Underhill Holiday Cottage in September 2014 the location was just perfect!! It has rural views and is very peaceful (yet close enough to the main road to get to Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors) The cottage was clean and comfortable and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. There is a steep track down to the cottage but this gives the cottage stunning countryside views across the valley and privacy so well worth the hike! This cottage is extremely good value for money and is a little gem! Can't wait to return!

“Lovely accommodation - some observations but no complaints”

Stayed there for 2 days - owner very obliging -lot of time and effort spent on place - warm clean & comfortable and good value. Place has lovely views and rural - not remote by car - if you intend to stay on foot it is down a steep track off a fast road so walking back into sleights is not recommended . That said we walked the other way to little beck down a country lane which picks up fosse falls and the last part of the coast to coast walk so good for walkers. Cab from Whitby was only £10

The cottage was clean and well equipped. It is on a farm and below the main road so quite. Views over the valley and can see Whitby Abbey in the distance. Very convenient for the N. Yorks coast, moors and York is just over an hour away. No broadband but this was a good thing. Take some DVDs. Owners live next door and were very friendly and helpful.
