2 families, grandma and 2 dogs had a great stay over Christmas! The cottage had everything we needed and was warm and welcoming, as was the owner! The open fire was an added bonus and there was plenty of space for everyone. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return at another time.
Homely, well equiped in a fantastic location

The owners had left mugs and everything ready to make a cup of tea on our arrival, and a bottle of wine. This was very much appreciated on a dark December night. It was warm and inviting and had everything we needed. My large family had a fantastic stay, thank you

A delightful cottage, location and, indeed, holiday.

The family holiday was a complete success. The cottage was excellent for our needs, our hosts friendly and attentive, the weather was kind and the scenery superb. I'd forgotten how glorious are the North Yorks moors.
The only criticisms that could be levelled were due to my wife being severely disabled with arthritis.
The drive up to the cottage was very rough and bone-shaking, the steps to the house rather steep for her and the settees in the cottage itself were very low and difficult for her to use'
However, as I said, that was due to my wife's condition rather than the cottage itself, but it is a point I think Mr Robinson might care to consider for the future.
Very enjoyable stay, excellent cottage in a fantastic location.

The cottage was very well equiped, clean and the owners were very welcoming. The location was fantastic with suberb views making our stay very enjoyable and relaxing. There was great places to visit nearby such as Pickering, Thirsk and the coast.
Will return again very soon.

Will always return to area, and this cottage. I have been staying in Yorkshire for the past 4 years on holiday camps, but this was first time in a rented cottage, we would rate this holiday as the best stay that we had.
