    We had a wonderful time. Just what we wanted - a bit of time away from it all. Thank you!

    We have even to this cottage 3 times now and it never fails to impress. The location is superb , rural yet also close to the sea with wonderful Whitby on one side and heavenly North Yorkshire moors on the other. The house is so spacious and the open fire a real bonus plus the heated conservatory with stunning views whatever the time of year. Normally we walk locally for miles so don’t get very far from here but my husband is due two knee replacements so walking is limited. We therefore did more driving into the North Yorkshire moors ( I have a book with 4 different drives) what a surprise that was. Magnificent countryside dotted with the quaintest villages. Surprising for this time of year many had shops and cafes open and Whitby itself was fairly bustling. What a contrast to other coasts which tend to closedown in january. Discovered Runswick Bay which is surely the equal of Robin hood bay. Can’t praise this magnificent area too much. Only thing I would change about the cottage is it needs a larger t.v with better free view service. There is no wi fi but phone reception is good so kept touch with emails on my 

    A perfect quiet retreat for a few days whilst within reach of so many places to explore with our two young boys. Would highly recommend.

    It's a warm and comfortable cottage in a quiet location with fine views and handy for lots of walks by the coast and on the moors. Only downside is an uncomfortable settee in the living room!
