Weekend Stay - 24th - 26th Nov 2017

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a fabulous weekend in this beautiful Farmhouse. We came here for my mums 60th Birthday surprise, there were 14 of us altogether ranging from 5 - 65. This place catered for us all, we had the best time and would definitely recommend it to anyone! Michelle was lovely and made us feel very welcome and at home. The pictures do not do it justice. Will hopefully be back next year.

We had a great weekend in the cottage with our family and grandchildren. The house is everything that we had hoped for and exactly as described.

The rooms were spacious and a great set up

The location is great right in the middle of the countryside and the children loved exploring the walks and streams close by

Lots to keep the children occupied from the games, jig-saws, books, pool table and of course the hot-tub

None of the rest of the family had been to Whitby, which was a short drive away and this was a great day out exploring the beach and the abbey.

Michelle who met us was great and showed us around, and explained everything.

I would recommend the house to everyone of all ages - Thanks again

Beautiful and relaxing place!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this beautiful farmhouse! Set in a lovely picturesque location. We stayed for my sister's 30th birthday weekend and were not disappointed. The farmhouse is spacious and yet homely that we felt so relaxed. The hot tub was fantastic, the main bedroom amazing and the downstairs bathroom... well I could of spent the weekend just in there. The attention to detail to welcome my sister for her birthday was so considerate, thank you for making it more special. We are looking forward to returning!

Weekend away (6 mum, 7 toddlers and 2 babies)

  • 5 of 5

Totally faultless stay at Hawthorn Cottage, Michelle was a pleasure to deal with and couldn't have done more to make our stay wonderful. The cottage is in a stunning location with matching views. The house worked perfectly for our weekend away with 9 children, the house is fully equipt with everything thing you need and beautifully beautifully decorated, the garden great for the kids with room to run around and a wooden climbing frame too! The only problem we had was that the children didn't want to leave! Hot tub just perfect was to end off a busy day visiting all the accessible attractions which are near by. Would recommend this cottage to anyone and we are already planning our next stay! Thank you again Michelle for a wonderful weekend at your cottage
