Lovely cottage 5 star rating
Lovely location, cottage was spotless , so very well maintained. Parking was a bit difficult but ok,getting cases etc down from the car to the cottage can be difficult. Local towns and beaches veery close, you can catch the train to Whitby at the station located at the bottom of the garden !!!! This cottage is highly recommended apart from the lack of broadband and mobile phone signal but you can get wi-fi at the pub (5 mins walk )

Plum Tree Cottage is an absolute gem and we have just booked it again for next year. The owners are friendly and helpful and they have furnished the cottage to the very highest of standards. It contains absolutely everything you could possibly need and it is supremely comfortable and clean. There is a multitude of maps & booklets and the area is beautiful. Absolutely first class, the cottage should have higher than 3 stars.

Clean, well-equipped cottage in quiet location, but near to shops, pubs and local railway
This self-catering cottage was spotlessly clean, with fully equipped kitchen & comfortable bedroom. It was very quiet at night and we slept well. There was a private, sunny garden and terrace area, with table and chairs, which was great for late afternoons/early evenings. The bike storage provided was secure and a washing machine with outside line & pegs made it really convenient for a cycling holiday. We also made the most of the local railway literally at the bottom of the garden for day trips to Whitby and (via steam train) to Pickering. With a pub or two in most of the small villages between Castleton and Whitby, it was easy to find somewhere for lunch while out for the day. The property owners were friendly and helpful and provided everything needed for a week's self-catering holiday in a first-rate cottage. We'd definitely go back..

We had the time of our life and plum cottage gave us a look into the true England. The cottage was a modern take on traditional style with out sacrificing any of the modern convinces. Tucked away in a small village in the North Yorkshire moores one could feel the fast pace of the city slip away and yet with a train located at the bottom of the garden you could plan a day exploring nearby sights with great ease. The owners are close by and a lovely couple if you needed any thing they were most gracious and were very willing to try and accommodate their guest to make their stay flawless. They are working on a second cottage so if a small group was going there would be room for all. We are already saving up for our next trip to England and Plum Cottage is on the top of the list .

A meticulously clean cottage with friendly and helpful hosts. The cottage was ideally located, just a few hundred yards from the railway line for easy access to Whitby and there's a shop in the village for stocking up. Every village has a pub or two - so there were plenty of options for meals/drinks. We enjoyed having a fully equipped kitchen which allowed us to cook in the evenings and also to eat outside in the garden. As we were cycling most days, having secure bike storage and a washing machine was ideal for us, and was one of the reasons we chose Plum Tree Cottage. We'd recommend the cottage for anyone considering an active walking/cycling holiday. We'd certainly return.
