We very much enjoyed our stay - and not only because the weather was generally friendly. It's an excellent location for places we like, it was very confortable, and the facilities were good. There was wi-fi available even though we had not expected it. All in all, we could not have asked for better!

Excellent central location for all east coast attractions. Very comfortable cottage with all mod cons. Children loved the galleried area. Refreshments tray on arrival was a really nice touch. Would definitely stay again.
A great stay in a great location.

We were warmly welcomed, shown around the property and given useful information on local amenities and places to visit. The property, although on a main road, was set down from the road and screened by a high hedge with very little traffic noise and with lovely views across fields and the Derwent valley, particularly from the breakfast/dining room. The property was modern, clean and well equipped, although TV reception was very poor, even on the large modern LCD TV. Set on the outskirts of the village of Brompton, it was very convenient for its excellent local butcher's shop and the local pub -very good for meals!
The very steep drive down to the parking area could prove challenging to a less experienced driver, particularly for the hill starts necessary to get out on to the main road.
All in all an excellent stay in a lovely location in easy reach of the North Yorkshire Moors and the coast.

Light, spacious accommodation, rather unusually arranged, with open-plan stairs from the living room leading up to the third bedroom, which is in effect a large landing with a futon bed - would be ideal for children, with lots of play-space, except there is no way of restricting light and noise from the living-room at bed-time.
Well equipped kitchen leading to pleasant small dining-room. Bathroom could do with updating and supplying with a lock.
Huge lawned garden with country views.
Very easy access to the coast and Moors.
A 70th birthday celebration.

We had a joint 70th birthday celebration at Manor Farm and the whole family was there - 19 altogether. Everyone, particularly the children, had a great weekend. They loved the hot tub and the four younger ones enjoyed their private little dormitory on the top floor. The whole experience was excellent.
