“So peaceful”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A lovely cottage in peaceful surroundings with fantastic views. What more could we ask. We had a wonderful stay and our Grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed it. Not too far from Scarborough or Whitby, driving through stunning countryside. Joanna lives on site and is on hand for any problems but isn't intrusive. The cottage is well equipped, tastefully furnished and quite roomy for its size.

“Fantastic cottage and a warm welcome”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have really enjoyed staying in the Stables cottage which is maintained to the highest of standards. It is in a lovely location with stunning views all around. When we arrived we received a warm welcome from our hosts Joanna & Robin. It's not the first time we have stayed at Murkhead Holiday Cottages in fact this is our 10th year at Murkhead that is how much we enjoy staying here. On the edge of the North York Moors between Whitby & Scarborough it is the perfect place to explore the Moors & East coast. We will be coming back again soon.

“Beautiful cottage, stunning views”

We were met with a warm welcome and after a long journey tea and cake was very appreciated. The cottage was even better than anticipated, the setting is beautiful, views from every room. It was so homely, comfortable and kept to a high standard with everything you would need. Joanna and family on hand to answer any queries. A short, enjoyable drive to Scarborough and neighbouring villages through picturesque landscapes. Would definitely recommend Stables Cottage

Perfect place for a dream holiday for the whole family. We had a wonderful and unforgettable time at Stables. The service was excellent throughout our stay. The cottage was cosy, warm and well equipped ( especially for a toddler - cot and high chair provided) . Lovely to be in such peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Loads of time spent with the incredibly large resident pig 'Prada' who our son loved. Cant wait to come back next year.
