Cosy, comfortable, cute
After reading a review from August 2018 I was concerned about our stay, but I can honestly say I'm not sure the review is for the same place. The Cottage looks just like the pictures, the hottub is fantastic and it has everything you need ( apart from WiFi) The owners greeted us on arrival and we had fresh farm complimentary eggs every morning for breakfast. The locations is brilliant. We had fab days in Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay as well as Sandsend beach being so close!! Towels and bedding included and no issues. The only thing I'd add is WiFi but some people prefer to get away from the world on a seaside break. Thanks for having us

Very disappointing.
We were unable to speak to the owner (Mr D Barker) after making several phone calls trying and didn't have a visit from him during our stay. The supposedly detached cottage is definitely not detached (end cottage of a row)and luxury as advertised. The stale smell that greeted us when we arrived was overpowering and we had to buy several air freshners but we couldn't get rid of the smell. The cottage is dirty and in need of a lot of repairs. The outside metal garden furniture is rusty and dangerous. There was a lot of bodged DIY done that looked awful. The towels were thin and rough. The crockery and pans were old and damaged. ....and a very sparse selection. There are no wardrobes, just cupboards with shelves (no good for hanging dresses or trousers). The bath needed a good clean and descale. Overall a very disappointing stay (that we cut short because of the state of the cottage ). It was certainly not value for money. We were very disappointed.

We stayed over valentine's week. We were initially concerned over some of the reviews on trip adviser however they are a little out of date. The lodge is superb and yes being on a farm does mean getting a little muddy when collecting your fresh eggs, but well worth it The owner Linda was so helpful and just couldn't fault the stay. The hot tub was amazing and just what was needed after long walks. Highly recommended

Perfect, can't wait to go ba k
Visited with my husband and our dog for 3 nights, only negative was it just wasn't long enough! Absolutely loved this cottage. Owner was incredibly friendly; there if you need anything but gave us plenty of space to do your own thing. Hot tub was amazing & being able to see the farm animals every day & collect fresh eggs ourselves was a lovely novelty. 2 local, dog friendly pubs within a few minutes walk. We particularly enjoyed the Brown Cow as the staff & locals were very friendly and the food was great. Great place to relax after a long walk. Would recommend walking along the coast into Staithes and Runswick, both take around half an hour to get to from the cottage & the views along the way are stunning. We will definitely be back & can't wait to visit again :)
