We have just spent a wonderful week here as a couple with our young son (3 and a half years old). Ideally placed for conveniences (shops, cash points, tourist attractions) whilst feeling like you're actually in the middle of nowhere. Wonderful wide open spaces with play equipment, tree house, giant outdoor games; a lovely woodland walk; and chickens roaming free, goats and horses to see, and a lovely babbling beck at the rear of the properties.
We stayed in Leat cottage which was spacious and comfortable. The beds were supportive and capacious. Most importantly for our son, there was ample floor space in the lounge for him to build expansive layouts with his wooden railway track! The kitchen was well equipped and all appliances worked well. We didn't have any problems with hot water as mentioned in other reviews - it was carefully explained to is roughly how much a tankful of water would "do", and how to get more hot water if we needed. And it was very hot!
We only had time to use the pool twice but found it clean and well presented each time. Our son is small for his age and tends to get cold quickly if pools aren't warm, but each time we were in the pool for around an hour and he didn't get at all cold.
Overall, we had an absolutely lovely, relaxing stay and our son loved it too. I'm sure we'll be back because there's so much to see and do around this area.
- 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
