We visited with an extended family group. We stayed in Heron View and other parts of our family had cottages on the same site which worked well. The best aspect of the complex are the facilities which should appeal to a wide range of ages interests. The grounds are beautifully kept. Everyone loved the swimming pool which was warm and just as shown in the photos. There is outdoor play equipment to suit a range of ages. My children are 9 and 6 years old and liked the wooden climbing fame, swings, scooters, the wooded area and the the open 'field' to run around in. As the complex is along a winding track It felt like a safe place to let children run about with a bit of freedom. There are also goats to watch and some friendly cats. Behind some of the cottages (gated off) there is a lovely pond which was nice and peaceful for a short gentle stroll. Heron view itself has a small (gated) garden with a stream that runs alongside. On site there is also a selection of games and children's books and lots of information about things to do in the area in the entrance foyer to the swimming pool. The cottage was well appointed with everything we needed. The owners seem to be keeping the cottages in good repair as our cottage had 'new' leather sofas (different to those on the web site). The complex is set in peaceful countryside, the beds were comfortable and the bedrooms all had blackout curtains which meant a good nights sleep! The owners were always on had to answer questions and help us.
- 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
