“Lovely property with great facilities”
Reviewed February 21, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a lovely stay at this cottage for a couple of nights in half term. We are 2 Mums with 2 children each which meant that the mums had a room each and then the children could share. There is one bedroom downstairs and then the other 3 bedrooms upstairs. Very comfy beds and the house was fully equipped with a dish washer, washing machine, microwave etc. The kids had a lovely time playing in the garden even though it was snowing. Thoroughly recommend this property.

“Excellet stay”
Reviewed February 14, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We have just returned from River Cottage and would recommend this property to anybody looking to hire somewhere. Whether it be for a weekend or something longer the cottage is ideal. Due to unforeseen circumstances we could not arrive on the day we booked from and the owners were extremely understanding. The cottage is well equipped ( including a high chair, travel cot and family games!!!) all kitchen equipment is clean and kept to a very high standard. The Jacuzzi bath and shower went down very well with the children.
We will definitely be returning!! Thank you for a great weekend :)

“Excellent. Couldn't of asked for better!”
Reviewed January 19, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Stayed at River Cottage in January, a group of us for a friends birthday! Excellent location, 15 minutes to Scarborough and only 40 to Whitby. The cottage itself is clean, tidy and well kept. On arrival we were greeted by the lovely land lady who was more than welcoming, told us where and which pubs we could get a bar meal from, a quick briefing of the house and we were left alone, with the option if needed to ask for anything anytime if needed. The spacious ground floor has an open plan kitchen, dining room and living room with a log burner. Also on the lower ground is a twin/double room with a large disabled bathroom. Up the stairs is another large bathroom, another twin/double room, a 3rd and 4th double rooms the 4th being the master with an ensuite bathroom. A very valuable, lovely homely place to stay for a long weekend or longer. A plus to our visit was that we asked for a slightly later check out on the morning of departure, again this was no trouble, with the fee being waved (I guess due to in being low season, expect a charge in peak season). Brilliant brilliant place, would highly recommended and we will be back should we visit again.

“Absolutley fabulous!”
Reviewed January 6, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This property is kept in excellent condition. The walls are 3 foot thick! and the house is lovely and warm. The welcome was warm & friendly and the "welcome gift" was very well received by all 8 of us. The area is very pretty with walks on your doorstep and a very good bus service just up the road. A lovely restaurant Walkers on the main road can highly recommend it. We came from Grimsby famous for its fish but Walkers were on par with the quality we are used to. You will find everything you need provided for in the cottage from towels to hair dryer pots and pans to loo rolls. We will be back!

“Fantastic cottage”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were so lucky to find this little gem. Host were so friendly and accommodating. the cottage was fantastic, warm, clean and lots of room for 4 adults and 4 children (including 3 teenagers). The grounds and setting are also to die for. We all wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely go back.

This is the second time we have stayed at River Cottage and have been impressed with the quality of the accommadation both times. The kitchen is very well equipted , beds are very comfortable with cotton sheets, plenty of hot water in bathrooms and loads of towels provided.
It was safe for our toddler with baby gates up and downstairs. Downstairs bedroom was used by Grandparnents who found it very comfortable. Garden and river are very peaceful and pretty. The village has a good fish restuarant and 2 pubs 5 mins walk. Good shop 5 mins walk. Very close to coast.
