I stayed at Low Costa Mill as a party of 21 people (12 adults, 9 children plus 1 dog) for our twice yearly walking weekend. The cottages were modern and very well equipped. The hosts live on site and were very helpful in pointing out places to go and things to do. There is plenty of parking. Lots of space for the kids to run around plus play equipment on the main lawn. There is a paddock (handy for walking the dog), a woodland walk, and a pond. There is also a swimming pool which we made good use of. The wifi signal was reasonable throughout the property which is particularly useful since there is pretty much no mobile signal there. The descriptions of the property, the area, places to go etc provided in the cottages were very well written with lots of useful information. I would definitely recommend Low Costa Mill Cottages for the reasons above and for its location just on the edge of Pickering which has lots going for it as well as being central for exploring the very scenic areas around Goathland plus the steam railway, and it's reasonably close to Whitby and Scarborough.

Room Tip: These are cottages (not hotel rooms) and they were all good.

Thank you for the review, and glad you had a good weekend. Can't do much for the mobile signal and customers experiences vary and handsets have different capabilities but typically O2 is very good (the network we use), Vodafone reasonable, and EE sketchy but generally is OK outside or upstairs in the cottages. As you pointed out we offer free WiFi so EE/Vodafone customers can use WiFi calling and O2 customers can use TuGo.

Had a holiday with 4 other families at low costa mill cottages and really enjoyed the cottages and the kids were in the pool constantly, had plenty of days out to the moors and the coast. Overall a great holiday and are definitely going to come back.

Ok where to begin, we (myself, husband and 3 boys) stayed for a week over Easter. In fact as I write we are soaking up the beautiful Yorkshire sunshine in our cottage garden!! We have been in Harvester cottage, which is spot on for a family of 5, comprising 3 bedrooms, a downstairs toilet, shower and sink, large living area and very well equips kitchen. Just also make mention of the open log fire in the living room, which with logs and kindling provided is a lovely addition at night. Another plus point for me is the dishwasher which is better than mine at home!! In addition there is a laundry room.on the site which is v handy with the boys, and the washing machines are free with a small charge for dryer. WiFi never missed a beat nice quick connection. Location is beyond description it's beautiful, peaceful.and immaculately maintained with tons to keep kids busy!!! A stream for pooh sticks, animals and a large play area plus woods to walk in. Next bonus is the fantastic heated indoor pool, it's so good for kids to splash about but also big enough for adults to have a decent swim. To conclude my review, I cannot reccomed this gem of a place enough, please give it a go if you are after a relaxing break in a location which is brilliant. The owners are lovely and v friendly always there to help or advise.

We have spent a weekend here and stayed in farriers cottage, we are a couple with a 14 month old baby and found it brilliant. There is a large outdoor play area and indoor swimming pool, our little boy loved it. Everything we needed in the cottage, Travel cot and highchair was ready and waiting for us on arrival, even plastic plates and bowls for our little boy, so thoughtful!! Around 5 mins by car into the centre of Pickering and we even got to see the flying Scotsman this weekend :) We will be returning hopefully this summer if there are vacancies!!

We stayed as a large family group of 20 staying in three cottages for a 50th birthday celebration. We had a wonderful time the accommodation was lovely very high standard with gorgeous open fires in all cottages. The swimming pool is a great bonus and lovely and warm on a cold January day. The owners are very accommodating, even bringing us an extra table and crockery so the whole family could get together in heron view the largest cottage for our birthday celebration. We have stayed here several times and have particularly noticed the improvements each visit to maintaining the high standards of accommodation. We will definitely be returning again in fact my son and family have already booked to go back in March with friends :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestling in ten acres of woodland & pasture, Low Costa Mill Holiday Cottages are set in a stunning, rural location,with the mill stream gently flowing along the boundary of the estate.Grouped around & adjacent to the Low Costa Mill farmhouse, a collection of seven cottages have been skillfully & sympathetically adapted from former farm & mill buildings. The cottages retain many original features, such as exposed beams & brickwork, these cottages make an ideal base for families, small groups & couples, or for anyone who appreciates the peace & tranquillity of the countryside. Dave and Tracy, the resident owners, occupy the farmhouse and are always on-hand for help and advice. We will provide any high chairs or cots required and will do our utmost to ensure your stay is enjoyable.With the feeling of being removed from a bustling modern lifestyle, the cottages are actually only 1.5 miles from the historic market town of Pickering and on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors.The cottages benefit from being set in 10 acres of gardens and woodlands. A large lawn provides an area for relaxing, playing games including giant snakes and ladders, hopscotch or draughts. A climbing frame, swings and garden toys should keep the children entertained allowing the adults to relax.No kids, or just need a break from your own? Then head past the stables and over Costa Beck to sit in the peace and quiet overlooking the tumbling beck.The on-site swimming pool is for the benefit of the cottage occupants only and provides many hours enjoyment for the kids. In fact combined with the climbing frame, garden games and woodland walk many of our guests spend the whole day without even thinking of leaving the site. ... more   less
