What Past Guests Are Saying
The highlight of our English countryside experience!
Ingleby Manor exceeded our expectations in many ways. First, and most importantly, the warmth and care of the host Christine Bianco was outstanding. She made sure that we were all confortable during the 1 week stay. Second, the quality of the manor house (including both common areas and the apartment) and the surrounding areas were incredible. Ingleby Manor would have been a great place to simply visit, but actually staying there gave us a unique experience of living in a well-kept 15th Centry castle while still enjoying the modern confort. Lastly, the location was great. There were so many interesting things to do -be it just walking about or visiting cultural/historical sites- that one week passed so quickly. We rarely feel like visiting the same place again but Ingleby will be our exception!
I'm going back - and it ain't for the cake!
Everybody talks about the cake you get at Ingleby. Although ours was home baked, pecan, and delivered with a big fat smile, it won't be the cake I will be returning for. Nice, as it was. Everything, repeat everything, about the stay was divine. The history, the romance, the secret garden, the rose garden, the stories the walls hold, the every whim catered for, the country air, the feeling that Christine had invited you into her home, and you were very lucky to be there...that's just the start. We stayed in the Country Cottage - 2 adults, 2 kids, from australia. I grew up in Gt Yarmouth - lived in England for 21 years...but until i stayed at Ingleby I had no idea how very beautiful England can be.
We used the Manor as a base to explore so much in the neighbourhood..Whitby, Robin Hood Bay, Maiseys Maize, York, Riveux abby...and so much more. Even sitting quietly in the 12 century church at the Manor's entrance left us quite in awe.
A particularly special night we entertained my brother's family in the old country kitchen... for a minimal fee it was set up, we bought our food and our dishes taken care of. All we did was enjoy each other and the beautiful environment.
My husband is an artist - he paints with his camera. The manor was his perfect muse. I'm sure she will soon be on his website - timlaffey.com
Thankyou Christine. You are a gem. Anybody who is reading this, considering booking Ingleby Manor, I'd say do it. Before somebody else does.
We stayed here recently in Courtyard Cottage having rented apartments in the manor itself previously. We had friends to stay too over the weekend and they loved it too. The whole place is amazingly tranquil and visitors are made very welcome by all the family. When you visit here you really feel you can relax.
The accommodation is very special; huge rooms beautifully decorated with interesting and comfortable furniture. Furnishings include stylishly heavy curtains and there's a wide variety of tasteful artwork in each room. We had an open fire in the enormous fireplace in the sitting room on a couple of nights with all the fuel provided.
The kitchen is large and well resourced. The welcome tray was much appreciated with a huge and delicious home made chocolate cake.
Upstairs the double bedroom has an enormous bed and there's enough storage space to move in permanently! The bathroom is tastefully furnished with a period washbasin and gold fittings.
We look forward to coming back sometime soon, hopefully in the summertime so we can use the beautifully cultivated gardens.
Wonderful house, friendly hosts, attention to detail
Stayed in East Wing over Christmas. The house Manor House itself is amazing. Full of history, amazing grand rooms and the Great Hall looked fantastic with the biggest Christmas tree I've ever seen!
The East Wing appartment was clean, cosy and every care had been taken to make sure it was comfortable and well equiped. The owner had made us some lovely Christmas cupcakes, which was such a nice touch. She made us feel very welcome and we had a fabulous time.
There are many fantastic walks in the area and the village itself is very pretty.
I would definitely go back again, as there is plenty more to explore.
A Wonderful Surprise!
We ( family of four adults) booked Courtyard Cottage for 10 nights as a base whilst visiting relatives over Christmas.
We were met and given a warm welcome by Christine the delightful owner of the Manor who showed us to the cottage. (and yes there was a delicious cake waiting for us)
Our surprise was evident when we entered the cottage, it was far more spacious than we had imagined, a very large sitting room with open fire, a large country style kitchen with every utensil you could think of, upstairs - two lovely bedrooms and a large bathroom with walk-in shower.
All the family made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. There was a plentiful supply of logs and coal for the fire and good central heating, so we soon made the cottage warm and cosy (although it was chilly at first)
Although there is WI -Fi internet access , plasma TV with plenty of channels and other modern appliances the cottage is a part of history and has a certain shabby chic (but spotlessly clean) feel to it. Lovely old pieces of furniture abound and the bed in the main bedroom is just soo comfy.
Staying at Courtyard Cottage made our Christmas. We were able to invite family and friends round and enjoy the festivities as though we were in our own home. ...and as I boringly kept saying to everyone all over Christmas " we haven't rented a cottage we have rented a home!"

Home From Home
This was our 3rd stay at Ingleby Manor. The first year we had the South Front, the second East Wing and this time The Pump Room. Each time it has been like a home from home with all the comfort and convenience you get in your own place but with the stylish rooms & impressive facade of the manor and the gorgeous views of the moors.
Ingleby Manor is a real gem. Another reviewer mentioned Christine's attention to detail and that is what makes this place so special. Each time we visit we wonder in advance what tasty cakes Christine will have provided for us. We are never disappointed.
It really doesn't matter what the weather is like. Whitby,York or Durham are an easy hour's drive away and there are plenty of places locally on the moors: Danby Moors Centre, the North York Moors Railway, hundreds of stunning walks. If the weather is especially nice then try the lovely seaside town of Saltburn with it's clean, golden sands and lively beachfront atmosphere.
Back at the Manor you have the beautiful gardens with children's play area and croquet lawn. You can even wander through the grounds for a decent constitutional.
The apartments are all well stocked with most of the equipment you need for cooking and cleaning (halogen hob, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher) etc to make for an easy life staying there. The apartments also offer books, games, TV, DVD player and wifi. But remember you're right in the country and the track from the village to the manor is half a mile long so don't be expecting town-like TV and Internet quality. But then that's not why you're going to be staying in a place like this.
Two words to sum up a stay at Ingleby Manor: "peace" and "quality".
A wonderful place for all ages
Ingleby Manor was even better than we could have expected. Going the extra mile to make our holiday the most comfortable and peaceful any holiday has ever been for us. Partly due to the beautiful surroundings, wildlife and welcoming cats and dogs. But mainly down to Christine's attention to detail throughout the apartment and the warm, welcoming and friendly environment. A place suitable for all ages Yorkshire offers alot and it was so lovely at night to get away from the hustle bustle to a peaceful and picturesque family home.
We have found never found anywhere to rival Ingleby Manor, it's
Lovely location, relaxing atmosphere, friendly and helpful owners. Plenty of space to wander in grounds and garden. Delicious cake to welcome us on arrival. Like so many other visitors to the Manor we keep coming back year after year and always find new things to do. Ideal for all ages.

Ingleby Manor absolutely beautiful
The booking process couldn't have been easier for 3 nights in the Gun Room apartment for me, my husband and our dog. On our arrival we were greeted with warmth and shown to our accommodation which was quite simply gorgeous. Awaiting us in the kitchen were home made scones, preserve,fresh cream, fresh eggs, tea and milk in the fridge. A wonderful unexpected and pleasant surprise. The Manor House and it's grounds are just stunningly beautiful and we had the opportunity to stay in this piece of old England. We would definitely recommend.
