“Rural perfection”
Reviewed June 27, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This was our second stay in Mill cottage at Murkhead.We had a four year old and one dog in tow.We all had a great break.The hosts are friendly and approachable. The cottage is comfortably furnished with all you might need. Scarborough and Whitby just a short drive away. Watching deer and bats in the evening a real bonus. We hope to return next year.

“Beautiful quiet location”
Reviewed May 16, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Mill Cottage is a beautiful quiet retreat but also close to the towns of Whitby and Scarborough for sightseeing, we especially liked Whitby and lunch on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. The bottle of wine and home made cake were a nice welcoming surprise. An enjoyable stay.

“Ticked all our boxes”
Reviewed September 16, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Mill Cottage is lovely, set on a farm in Harwood Dale. The cottage ticked all of our boxes and had everything we needed to spend a peaceful, relaxing time. Lots of pretty walks in the vicinity and just a 10 minute drive to Ravenscar - a must for photographers and walkers alike. Highly recommend this cottage and will definitely be going again some time.

The setting on the Farm is beautiful. The Cottage is of high quality and very relaxing and comfortable. You are located in ready distance to Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington. Pye and Huxley, the Family Dogs walked with us and are lovely. Joanna the Owner is intent on making sure you have a lovely stay. Winter might need a bit more care when Icy as the roads can be steep. Its great value and you will bot be disappointed. Its a safe haven for Children. Are their any downsides? Being on a farm you will get flies visit. We never got a Mobile Phone signal. WiFi was a bit erratic, though it seemed fixed later in the week.Its a popular place for people to return so book early. Its been a happy week starting the day with brilliant scenery.

“Perfect secluded cottage, repeat customers couple and family!”
Reviewed December 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This year was our first at the Mill cottage, two young children in tow, one 4 and the other 3 years, although we as a couple have stayed with Joanna and her wonderful family via the Honeysuckle cottage several times, we simply love it there.

We appreciate the peace and quiet location as well as the secluded and informal style of the self catering option you get with one of Murkhead cottages. Yet its 10, minutes drive from central Scarborough, you literally have everything you need on your doorstep as well as the perfect base to explore the local area.

Positives In a nutshell;
- Stunning peaceful location on a working farm
- Suitable for families and couples
- Total luxury and top noch facilities
- 10 minutes from central Scarborough
- Full stocked supermarket 5 minutes down the road towards town

Joanna ensures that you have all the luxuries from home in your cottage, from a lovely bottle of wine and her delicious cake on arrival to fresh linen, towels and all the quality furnishings you can want, that and the stunning area is what keeps us coming back year after year!!
