RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
We have just returned from a week's holiday here. The Cottage was well presented, clean and full of charm. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need. Only thing that would have made this perfect was a washing machine. The lounge was spacious and comfortable. Upstairs was much bigger than the photos showed and was very homely. As the owners were on holiday we were looked after by Sheila and Ian, both were amazing. Sheila was incredibly welcoming and could not do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble. Our daughter loved helping you feed the chickens. Ian always greeted us with a smile and too was very welcoming. They are both a real credit to the Estate. The grounds and surrounding area were stunning and incredibly peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk to Grosmont. The Stepping Stones in Egton are a must and the children wanted to go every evening there. We had a fantastic meal at the Estates pub, The Horseshoes, which was very tasty. All in all a wonderful stay and would love to return. Thank you.
Felt like Home!
Lovely, lovely place to stay. We enjoyed a relaxing weekend at the Manor Cottage. The cottage is full of character with plenty of modern comforts. We had all that we needed here. Very helpful unobtrusive owners (including polite children an friendly dogs!). The cottage was very clean, well equipped and everything worked. The location is really quiet but perfect for walking (straight from the doorstep) and for seeing the sights of the North Yorkshire Moors and coast. Good value given the uniqueness of the place. Thank you for having us!
