Small, cozy cottage surrounded by chickens, horses and dogs. Definitely no street noise - a place to relax. Located in the middle of the moor with a short distance to the places of interest. Very good hiking opportunities. Very friendly landlady. We really enjoyed it and hope to be back as soon as possible.

Daffodil Cottage is a converted barn situated on the North Yorks Moors. It has been beautifully converted into an idyllic and cosy home from home. Access is via an unmade farm track after a climb up a very steep country road although that should not in any way deter any visitor!!
The cottage itself is ample for two, the bathroom is ideal with a shower and there are plenty of pots and pans,crockery and cutlery. The bedroom is lovely althogh I have 2 say between us we were a tad bemused at the identical lamps inside - we could not get them to switch on for toffee!!!
The area is beautiful - there are lots of little villages nearby with things to do or see - the Moors Centre in Danby, Goathland where Heartbeat was filmed and Rydale Folk Museum in Hutton - le -Hole to mention but a few. A few miles in either direction takes you to Whitby, famous home of Dracula and in the other direction to the market town of Guisborough although York with its attractions are not too far a drive away!
We had every day company from the friendly resident anilmals, cats, dog and open the door and you're face to face with horses in the stable!!!
It was a bonus to be able to use the washing and druing facilities of the owner at any time, there were plenty of muddy clothes!! To just be able to pull on your boots, leave the cottage and be in such surroundings is truly inspiring. Although I live not too far away my partner is from Norfolk and was stunned by the surroundings and what the North has to offer.
We had such a relaxing, quiet break - it was all we asked for and so much more and we will definately go back for further visits.
Nice secluded little cottage in moorland countryside

This is a nice little cottage. It is not exactly spacious downstairs but quite adequate for two people, assumin gyou'll be going out most days. The bedroom is nice and spacious. Pity about the bathroom being downstairs (especially in the middle of the night!). It is equipped very well and I had no problems.
Location wise it is excellent, you are not far from many moorland places. There is Whitby and the coast, Robin Hood's Bay, North Yorks Railway, etc. or just stay local and enjoy the countryside. Shopping is sparse locally, but Guisboreough and Whitby aren't too far away, so just stock up.
Be careful of the lane approaching the cottage, it is rough and single track.
So, overall a nice little cottage and if you want to get away to the country, rather than have lots of bars and clubs etc. this will suit you nicely.
Oh yes, there's a friendly cat who will visit you as well!
