“Fantastic weekend celebrating my 30th with the girls :)”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Just en route home after a fab long weekend in this amazing house celebrating my 30th. The house is in an ideal location for lots of fun things. Go ape, steam trains and the east coast to name just a few. The house is decorated to a beautiful standard with all the home comforts and more. Plenty of space for a get together with family and friends. Would highly recommend to people give it a 11 + out of 10. If you havent had chance to experience this house all I can say is your missing out :)

“An outstanding property, great for large groups, ideal locations - perfect”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We have just returned from a perfect stay at this property. The house is absolutely beautiful with everything you need, a real home from home. It is an ideal base for exploring the area, both inland and out to the coast. We had three genrations of our family staying and it was ideal for getting everyone together. The location within Pickering is ideal, everything on your doorstep with a vast array of eateries if you wish to dine out right on your doorstep.

We will definitely be back.

“Great house in a lovely location”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We had a special birthday family party and it catered for all of us from 4 years - 65 years!
The beds are very comfortable and had no problems falling asleep, only getting up in a morning!!
The dining room is very cosy and as it is winter we had the log burner for extra ambience - lovely.
The NYMR is just accross the road, also the supermarket is only 2 mins away. Lots of eating places to walk to and plenty of take aways also.

“Magical cottage, wonderful walks.....magical Christmas”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Although as a family we stay at a cottage rental every year at different locations all over the UK, we had never been away from home at Christmas. This cottage was actually booked from New Year's Day 2012.......with a little drink assistance and a weak moment.
We needn't have worried. The care and attention to detail for the cottage was well beyond all of our expectations. On arrival(after a 5 hour journey with 3 squashed in grumpy teenagers) we opened the door of the cottage to find the most wonderful cottage very tastefully decorated for Christmas with a massive Christmas tree in the lounge....the owners had even left Christmas card........and bottle of Champers!
The location was very handy, with shops (and a market place) in the Main Street opposite for the last little bits.....we had ordered a Turkey to collect from York (25 mins) on Christmas Eve.
We had a different walk everyday which were all right on the doorstep, as were a wonderful choice of pubs....all with open fires and local ale...if that is your gig...it was ours!
Everybody was extremely friendly and welcoming.
The last day we went to the train station (next door to the cottage) with the steam train ride (a guy told us this was the station and train used in The Harry Potter film). We went to Goathland and walked through the village...this was the one in Heartbeat.Then walked to the Mallyon Spout waterfall and then to Grosmont....about a 4mile walk......when we got to the station, we went into the station cafe....where again a roaring fire and a hot chocolate topped with cream was divine. This was a full day....but by far the best most unexpected day that we spent.
All in all, this was the most fantastic cottage and location and absolutely made our family Christmas complete. I think we will probably reflect on this break when we are back at work and school and think it was probably the best Christmas that we have had.

What a wonderful review to read. It has honestly sent shivers down my spine. Thank you so so much. The most important thing for us is to cater for all of the needs of our guests and make it as much a home from home as possible. A holiday is a big financial commitment for families and it is so important that we get it as right as we possibly can. You left the house immaculate thank you - you can come back any time :) Happy New Year and we hope to see you again soon :) xxxxxx

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the house - it does help other future guests make a decision. I have to say that my pet hate is being cold s- so whilst the house is big we try and have it cosy and warm for guests. I am so pleased that you were happy with everything - having children ourselves we know the importance of keeping them entertained!! Further improvements planned for 2013. Come back soon :) THANKS!
