            Holiday August 2019

            Brilliant cottage in perfect location for our needs. 2 very good sized bedrooms and huge kitchen and lounge. Kirkbymoorside just a short drive away for supplies but Pickering and Helmsley close by. We used as a base to explore Whitby, York, Robin Hoods bay, and a slightly longer trip to Beamish. Excellent golf course in Kirbymoorside. Ate out at The Lion Inn on Blakey Ridge and The Moors Inn at Appleton le Moors - both serving excellent food. Would recommend this place to anyone wanting to explore N.Yorks area.

            5/5 Excellent

              High spec accommodation where you can take your pooch!

              Beautiful cottage furnished to a high spec. The attention to detail was amazing. The owner had thought of everything and everything was of top class quality.
