“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Rented the cottage for a visit to the area with my wife and extended family. There are 4 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms incl. 1 en-suite. The place is ideal for Scarborough and the surrounding area. It is very comfortable, everything you need for your stay. Nice large garden attached with BBQ and patio area. Even a river running at bottom of garden. Very picturesque. Lots of nice touches like bottle of wine, baguette, fresh butter on arrival. Cotton buds and cotton wool balls in bathrooms.

“Warm, welcoming and peaceful house by the river”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed for one week with German friends and English family. There were 6 adults and 2 small children and there was plenty of room for all of us since there are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The house has a lovely warm and welcoming feel about it and has every facility you could want for a comfortable stay at any time of the year. It was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The garden outside is delightful and runs down to the river and even though it was early spring when we stayed it was perfect for an Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday. In summer it would be great for a BBQ. Our only suggestion (but very minor) would be some sort of gate to the garden so that small children can't access the river. The owners who live next door are very friendly welcoming and helpful when needed but also unobtrusive. As for the location - East Ayton is a lovely village with a handy Spar, petrol station, pub with food, fish and chip shop and fish restaurant. Scarborough is an easy 10 minute drive away, and Whitby and York etc. a bit further but very easy to get to. We had a delightful week and would most definitely return again.

“Perfect for a family get-together”
Reviewed 13 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a fab weekend in this lovely converted millhouse. The bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable and there is a wet-room downstairs, a family bathroom upstairs and an ensuite in the master bedroom so the facilities are spot on.
We travelled as a family of 5 (including an infant) and took both sets of grandparents with us. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and we are hoping to make it an annual treat in which case we will definitely be returning to this property.

“Lovely property with great facilities”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a lovely stay at this cottage for a couple of nights in half term. We are 2 Mums with 2 children each which meant that the mums had a room each and then the children could share. There is one bedroom downstairs and then the other 3 bedrooms upstairs. Very comfy beds and the house was fully equipped with a dish washer, washing machine, microwave etc. The kids had a lovely time playing in the garden even though it was snowing. Thoroughly recommend this property.

“Excellet stay”
Reviewed 15 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We have just returned from River Cottage and would recommend this property to anybody looking to hire somewhere. Whether it be for a weekend or something longer the cottage is ideal. Due to unforeseen circumstances we could not arrive on the day we booked from and the owners were extremely understanding. The cottage is well equipped ( including a high chair, travel cot and family games!!!) all kitchen equipment is clean and kept to a very high standard. The Jacuzzi bath and shower went down very well with the children.
We will definitely be returning!! Thank you for a great weekend :)
