We had a great week in North Yorkshire. Our cosy cottage in Lingdale had everything we needed for a fulltime wheelchair user and her husband with welcoming hosts and impressive views over the moors to the sea. It was a really good base for exploring the coast with Saltburn, a Victorian spa town with real character, only a short distance away and iconic Whitby, half-an-hour away. Driving over the dramatic moors just added to the holiday.We'll definitely be back!
Wilsons Cottages have been converted from an old barn and The Cow Byre is one of four. Very clean and airy and more than enough room for 2 adults and a dog. The beds are quite comfortable and their is ample storage space. The cottage is well advertised as suitable for the disabled. The well equipped kitchen and lounge area are within one room. Being the corner cottage, there is a lovely sitting area in front of the back door and around the corner is another patio area. There is also use of the grassed farmers field for all four cottages. This is by no means a complaint but the only down side to the cottage we found was the inside seating, I am sure some people with certain ailments will find the style OK but I have a bad lower back/hip and could not get totally comfortable. Bill the owner is very friendly and informative and it was nice knowing he was close at hand if we needed anything. Of note, towels are not provided but bed linen is.
The pub in the village has closed down but there is what looks like a very nice bar/restaurant, unfortunately though this did not have a beer garden so we were unable to go as we have a dog.
The fish shop is excellent and the mini supermarket was well stocked.
We would not hesitate to stay here again and have already recommended it to our friends.
