“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Had a short break at River Cottage (3 nights) in early May. Thoroughly relaxing time and the cottage was beautifully appointed. Immaculately clean and good quality fixtures and fittings. Owners were a pleasure to deal with (my wife handled that!). They provided a high chair and travel cot for our 5 month old and a bottle of wine for the adults! Lovely location, pub friendly next door and the guest book revealed a good menu although we didn't eat there. Ideal spot to explore the Cleveland Coast - you can walk to Staithes, close to Whitby, Guisborough, North York Moors attractions, Robin Hoods Bay etc.

No mobile signal was a blessing!

“Idyllic”

We went for a Christmas break, from the South the journey is normally 5 hours, however this was a bad day to travel on, i think we went on the 22nd Dec, the journey was 8 hours of stop and start traffic with a rammed full car and the kids in the back. So we got there in the dark all hungry and tired and in need of stretching our legs. We opened the door and hoped it would be nice, well, WOW, it was the cleanest holiday cottage we have had in the north east, there was a very welcome bottle of wine in the fridge and the Christmas tree was up with the lights on and a few lamps on around the house, it was beautiful !!! all mod cons very modern and up to date decor, everything was so clean. the area so blissfully peaceful, the pub next door like a step back in time but thats how these pubs should be, very friendly locals and landlady made us very welcome, especially on Christmas day while we had our turkey cooking next door we popped in for a drink. Totally reccomend this cottage and will be coming again. Two slight criticisms, would of been good to have a washing machine, more so if we had been staying for two weeks, andthe sofas, not the most comfortable especially the sofa bed extremely painful thing to sit in. But wold not put us off coming again, it was a superb first class, five star Cottage and location.
