Why Julie Simpkin & Brett Baldwin chose Kirkbymoorside

After being in love with the stunning scenery and lovely people of North Yorkshire for 30 years, finally we brought our cosy holiday cottage in 2012. Now we cannot wait to come and stay here ourselves each year, and hope you enjoy the cottage and Kirkbymoorside as much as we do. Your feedback is also greatly appreciated so that we can improve on our facilities to you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just got home, and wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay in your gorgeous cottage. Being able to arrive early on Sunday was fabulous- and to find such a well equipped home from home was so welcoming. We stay away fairly frequently and have never found such a thoughtfully equipped cottage- the torches, tupperware, thermos flask, and picnic hamper were really appreciated... even though we had our own it was nice to know our needs were catered for. We enoy cooking, and found all the equipment that we could want. The standard of furnishings was excellent, and the whole theme,

A lovely place to stay in a peaceful village.

  • 5 of 5

A small, well furnished cottage with all necessary facilities. The cottage was dog friendly and the neighbours welcoming. Nice pubs a short walk away as are a range of local shops. A lovely week spent walking in a beautiful part of Yorkshire that we will certainly visit again.

Lovely cottage, lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely weeks stay in Lantern Cottage. Kirkbymoorside is the perfect location to explore the surrounding area and Lantern Cottage is perfectly located to do this. The cottage is clean and well equipped and we really enjoyed our stay. If you like walking there are lots of walks starting here. We did a couple of the circular walks which are to recommended. Scarborough,Whitby and York are all approx 1hrs drive away. We were lucky enough to have perfect sunny weather and our evenings were spent enjoying a glass or two in the lovely garden. Would we stay again ? Most definitely ! We look forward to returning to Lantern Cottage.

Quiet, cosy, relaxing cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location to visit all that North Yorkshire has to offer. Short stroll into village which has everything you need and good pub food too. Enjoyed chilling out in cottage and garden after a busy day. Friendly owners who care about their visitors to their cottage. Enjoyed Scarborough, Flamingo Land, Helmsley, Malton food festival. Would recommend for a quiet, relaxing break.

Great cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable bed, functional clean bathroom and a kitchen where everything works. On top of that it's a really nice place. Dog liked it too, plenty to sniff in the enclosed garden as well as some great walks in walking distance. Kirkbymoorside is a great location for exploring the area, or just relaxing in the Kings Head pub or Penny Bank cafe. No hesitation in recommending Lantern Cottage.
