Had a lovely stay in this cottage. It is ideally situated in the middle of the beautiful village of Thornton-le-Dale, two minutes walk away from the two pubs and many cafes. The welcome hamper supplied was a lovely touch. The information in the cottage was clear and concise with lots of ideas for entertainment in the area. There was a supply of books and games if needed. The rooms were very comfortable with constant hot water and lovely and warm and cosy. We went out and about every day when we were there walking for miles around the area and we're glad of the cottage comforts when we got back.
James the owner was instantly contactable without being intrusive.
A lovely break. We would love to visit again
Place well presented and comfortable. Only criticism is that the main bedroom had a constant strong fusty smell. Which made us feel ill. The smell seemed to be around the wardrobe area and was very off putting. Unsure if the smell was from the actual wardrobe itself.
We noticed the description of the property said bedding was Egyptian Cotton, but the bedding was definately not.
A lovely cosy cottage down an unnamed Lane. Ample parking. Well equipped and comfortable. The village was just a short walk away with pub, tea rooms, local stores etc. Very convenient to travel to Pickering. A welcome pack included eggs, butter, crumpets, tea, milk, chocolate and a bottle of wine.

We have stayed in many cottages over the years and we think that this to be one of the best we have stayed in.
We stayed for one week and cannot fault the accommodation
Its been build and fitted to a very high standard in a a very quiet position in a lovely village.
We found it to be spotless clean, comfortable and well equipped.
The welcome basket was a lovely touch
Thornton Le Dale which is very pretty and for a small village it got a lot to offer .The center of the village is a 5 minute walk from the cottage.
We ate the New Inn and the Brandy Snap Bistro, which was amazing .I would recommend to book tables well in advance of your stay .Both places are very popular.
We had a tasty Pizza from the village piazza place .Had afternoon tea at the Lavender tea rooms .
We also got a supply of some lovely food from the Cedar Barn Farm Shop just outside the village
The location of the village is ideal for day trips around the area.We spend days visiting both the moors and the coast .Dalby forest is near by and offers many great walks for all abilities.
We went to the Whitby and Robin Hood bay .Traveled on the North York Moors railway from Pickering to Whitby .Also spend a day at Castle Howard .We only had one rainy day and enjoyed a visit to Eden Camp that day
We highly recommend this accommodation to others and hope to returns ourselves next year.
We found the accommodation to be extremely clean and comfortable with a really nice secluded garden with garden furniture. It is ideally placed for Dalby forest which we visited for the first time and found it great if you like walking and/or biking and less than 30 minutes to Scarborough and Whitby. The village itself is quaint with a couple of family friendly pubs which do food and it also has a fish shop. All in all great break and we will definitely be back! Thanks
