Excellent welcome on arrival, very spacious & clean. Both cottage & surrounding area absolutely first class. Will defiantly recommend to friends & family. Really good heating system & plenty of hot water.The thing we liked best was the lovely bathroom facilities. The thing we liked least was the TV was too small for the room although it worked well & had plenty of channels.

Barn Cottage was just as described on your web site. It was very clean and comfortable. The arrangements for the key were easy and instructions how to get there were easy to follow. The location was excellent - only a few miles from all attractions eg Whitby Museum.
All in all Barn Cottage was an enjoyable place to stay in beautiful country side.
My only slight grumble was that there was no soap to wash hands/shower and very little toilet paper.
liked it very much

Very nice place to stay, good level of furnishings. Good shower, plenty of hot water.Very quiet, very rural but not too far from main road. Easy to find.
