About Sharon Baxter

James, Sharon and our family live in 'The Old House', a 200 year old property, that used to be the village pub many years ago. We have lots of space for the family, our two black labs 'the boys', Lily the Jack Russell, Tink the Patterdale Terrier, Eddie the parrot and our collection of chickens, all surprisingly very well behaved. Although we both work full-time, we constantly strive to keep our home and the cottage in beautiful order. The village is very pretty, especially in summer and the residents are really friendly, always having time to stop for a quick chat. We're a very friendly and reasonably quiet bunch. We respect our visitors privacy, but we're on hand should anyone need us. A warm welcome awaits from our family to yours.

Why Sharon Baxter chose Folkton

We bought this property because it's set in a pretty village with nearby farms. It's quiet and the house is old as it's name suggests, with a long and interesting history. It's a typical white wash and stone village, beautifully quiet, but within 5 minutes drive of a large supermarket, with easy access to all the surrounding towns and amenities. Only 15-20 minutes away from cinema's, the theatre, a swimming pool, cricket and golf, cycling and walking, shopping and eating, there really is something for everyone. In contrast the lovely garden is perfect for relaxing any day of the week with the odd horse naying in the distance!

What makes this cottage unique

Only 5 mintues from many amenities, whilst the quiet village location is idylic surrounding this characterful property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr & Mrs Floyd from Herefordshire said it was the best cottage they had ever stayed in and the warm and friendly welcome had them re-booking before they left.

Mr & Mrs Sherburn of Sheffield commented what a beautiful and peaceful setting, loved the cottage and the pub food. Their border terrier had a fabulous time too!

Cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weeks holiday in this gorgeous cosy cottage. It was full equipped we wanted for nothing. Loved the huge cupboards, there was plenty of hanging space. Sharon and James couldn't have been more helpful, friendly or nicer. Beautiful garden and patio which Theo made the most of. Especially when his new friends were out.

They have 4 beautiful dogs it's a dog lovers paradise. Thank you very much. John, Maria, Bernie and Theo from Leeds xx

Owner's Response: John, Maria, Bernie and Theo (a fabulously intelligent 'hearing dog') were wonderful guests to have and we are absolutely thrilled they enjoyed their holiday so much. We do strive to maintain the cottage to a high standard, so receiving such a super review of 5 stars from one of our guests is a fabulous reward for our endeavours! We sincerely hope to see this lovely family returning again to stay in the future as so many of our guests do and would like to thank them for taking the time to post their review. Sharon and James.

Brill stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for five nights in this lovely little property and had a really good time. We received a lovely welcome from this lovely couple and they were excellent throughout our stay. The property is well equipped with everything you could need and is lovely and clean and fresh. It is is a nice location handy for travelling around. The pub down the road was great and we had a good meal there. We will return hopefully again. Thank you very much. Sue, Dave, Michael, Bradley and Sky

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely week in this well-situated cottage. Ideal location to explore Filey, Scarborough,Whitby, York, the Moors etc. The cottage was immaculately clean, and very well shocked and maintained. The large garden, with picnic tables, was lovely - and the off-road parking a bonus. Owners Sharon and James were very welcoming and helpful. This is the only holiday location we have ever used where there has been an abundance of coat hangers - thank you! Excellent food at the Foxhound Inn (very large portions too!).

Owner's Response: Thank you Alison for taking the time to write this review, it's fabulous to know when our visitors have really enjoyed their holiday. The Foxhounds pub really is a bonus just around the corner and it's always a challenge to see if you can clear your plate! Our believe our Jack Russell Lily also enjoyed your stay whilst playing in the garden with your grandson, so it was a winning week all round. We'll look forward to seeing you again, Sharon & James.

Lovely holiday wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We visited with my elderly dad, and 2 dogs. The accommodation was spotless and had just about everything we could have needed. Very comfortable beds and great storage in the hallway outside the bedrooms. Excellent shower in the bathroom. Although there is no dining area, we were able to use the garden table and chairs and as the weather was beautiful during our stay we enjoyed our breakfasts outside. Our hosts could not have been kinder or more helpful. We and our dogs had extensive use of their lovely big garden and they were very helpful when we had car problems, arranging for us to visit a local garage.

The local Foxhounds pub, has good and well priced pub grub (though the portions are ENORMOUS!) and is friendly and efficient. The area is fantastic - so much to see and do, we barely touched the surface but would highly recommend a trip to York with the Railway Museum, the Minster, and a wonderful shop called the Imagninarium. We had a peaceful lunch just minutes away from the city centre at the Bay Horse Inn in Marygate. For railway enthusiasts we recommend a trip on the North York Moors Railway - very dog friendly and fab steam trains. We started at Pickering (a pretty market town) and the line goes through to Whitby. We had a really good day. Also we would recommend a visit to Wharram Percy - a deserted medieval village in a beautiful location south of Pickering. We also enjoyed, Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough, Bempton Cliffs and Flamborough Head.

Overall we cannot recommend the accommodation, our lovely hosts and the area enough. We hope to return.

Owner's Response: We would like to thank Fiona and Martin for this very complimentary review. Such friendly people are a delight to have stay with happy and well behaved dogs too! It's really satisfying when our visitors really do get so much out of their holiday, visiting all the sites they would like to see. The area has so much to offer and the sunshine is just a great bonus. We hope to see them again very soon.
