“Home after two fantastic weeks up in Yorkshire, the cottage was lovely and was much better than we had expected. It was a lovely cosy, quiet hideaway and one we will certainly hope to be able to return to.”
“Really enjoyed our stay here. The owners clearly have put a lot of time and effort into the cottage. They even answer any criticism left in the visitor's book (not that there are many). First time I've seen this. They do their best to address any problems. The cottage was very clean throughout with solid furniture and fittings, it's clear they didn't scrimp on these.”
“We had a cracking time staying in Dairy Cottage. It is cosy with everything needed for a comfortable stay. We found a nice spot to sit and enjoy the views a short walk to the north of the village. The village is ideally situated for a drive round the country roads to various villages etc. as well as being a nice distance north of Pickering. All in all a gem of a cottage, one I think we will revisit in the future.  ”
“A very comfortable cottage in an ideal location for lots of days out. The White Swan pub was very family friendly. Our grandchildren particularly enjoyed the steam train to Whitby, as we did too. We have made several visits to this lovely part of Yorkshire and it never lets us down.  ”
“An interesting, comfortable property in the centre of great walking area. Lovely cosy place to spend a day in, but also a quick easy drive to Pickering and onwards. The owner has given a lot of thought and attention to making the cottage work for guests. We enjoyed the log burner which was easy to get going. The utility area was great for bikes and muddy boots, and the village is very scenic for little strolls.”
“Dairy House had a cosy, homely feel to it and is in such a lovely setting. The children enjoyed feeding the ducks on the green and loved the play area just down the road. The grown-ups very much appreciated the bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival and taking in the beautiful scenery.”
“Ideally located for York, the east coast resorts , North Yorkshire moors and The Yorkshire Dales. Very comfortable with a very friendly pub almost next door. Both my wife and I, together with our family from Western Australia, feel we made a good choice!”
“The cottage is spacious and well appointed. It is in a peaceful location adjoining a farm. The village is a few miles from a town so a car is essential. A good venue for walking and for touring by car. Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Absolutely!”
“Loved where it was situated. Lovely friendly country pub just down the road. A very cosy cottage. Large kitchen to eat in. It was all very clean and a very pretty place. Much impressed.”
“What a lovely cottage Dairy House is. Very comfortable, well appointed and homely. Would love to know the story behind the fire surround!”
“Lovely quiet location with comfortable rooms and a good friendly pub close by. The walking and scenery was spectacular. Loved the steam railway with the old fashioned stations. York was a good day out there was so much history to see and Whitby was fun especially if you like fish n chips. The local ales were all tasted most more than once. What a great holiday I will be back.”
