About the Owner

We live in England in The North Yorkshire Moors, with our 2 dogs Bailey & Teodora, 2 cats Cia & Lyon and 2 donkeys Willow & Bracken. We moved to the countryside in 2012 and renovated our 1760's agricultural stone barn into 3 holiday cottages. We have since turned our utility barn into a games room for our guests and are now updating our own home (the guests had to come first).

We have also planted an orchard so fingers crossed in the future, our guests will be able to pick apples and try their hand on the press we intend to use for making cider. It has been an exhausting journey, full of surprises (mostly good but others not so) however we have managed to stay married to each other and wouldn't swap it for the world. A friend visited recently and said we had found a little piece of heaven and we think we have. We are hoping to get some chickens next and share our fresh eggs with the guests.

Beautiful clean cottage, peaceful setting and we loved it. Loved the furnishings in the cottage and the whole 'feng shui'. Perfectly located for Boggle Hole, Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby. Our dog, enjoyed it as much as us and our two children. Favourites being the cottage itself, the donkeys, dogs, views, location, surroundings fields, boggle hole, robin hoods bay and falling fos.

Highly recommend and we hope to return.

Thank you Lisa and Graham -great hosts xx

For-get-me-not - and we won't! Loved every thing about the cottage inside and out. It was spotlessly clean, tidy and ideally appointed. The view out the front towards the coast was superb.

Lisa and Graham are lovely hosts- they should be really proud of what they have achieved here.

We are looking forward to returning...sooner rather than later.

Clean, comfortable property with everything you need for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 4 days in Forget me Not. Property was gorgeous. Tastefully furnished with everything you need for a great holiday. Loved watching all the birds each morning on the bird feeder (thanks to Lisa for stocking up their bird feed supply each morning). Fab views of the countryside and sea from the living room. Lisa and Graham should be very pleased with what they've achieved. They made our stay comfortable and effortless. The property is located in a good spot for visiting the coastal towns and there are plenty of places to eat and drink within a mile or so.

From the Owner

We fell in love with the area whilst visiting my parents who live nearby in Scarborough. We were keen to buy a property which allowed us to run a holiday cottage business but also gave us the opportunity to renovate a building ourselves and start the business from scratch. We moved in July 2012 & started work on the barn, which has only housed cows and swallows since 1760. It has been a very frustrating & exhausting year but we have managed to complete the renovations and opened for business in late Summer 2013. We love living here and are looking forward to sharing it with visiting guests. Before and after photos of the project can be seen on our website.
