A lovely cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this beautifully clean (and it takes a lot to impress me!) cottage in stunning surroundings. Great to get away from the rat race and relax in the countryside. The cottage had everything we needed and the owners were very welcoming. We will definitely be back and have already recommended it to our parents to visit!

Great setting on beautiful moorland

  • 4 of 5

Cottage very clean & comfortable with welcoming, helpful owners. Very spacious and well equipped downstairs. Second bedroom upstairs restricted head room but still comfortable. A minor point but a couple more hooks or somewhere to hang towels upstairs would be a bonus. Overall, a very lovely place to stay.

Lovely barn conversion in a fantastic rural setting

  • 5 of 5

As others have commented - this really is a great little property to spend a week in.

The scenery around Greenlands Farm is something else and provides a great base for getting away from it all.

That said, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Scarborough and all the other tourist destinations are easily accessible by car.

The property itself is very well presented with all of the bits and bobs you could need for your stay.

Jackie and John are great hosts, ensuring you have everything you need for your stay and always willing to advise on things to see and do in the area.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending a break here and am sure that we will return in the future.

Lovely cottage in peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a modern conversion of an older farm building resulting in a clean, pleasantly decorated, comfortable and very well equipped cottage.

The outdoor space available is good for children to safely play in and the walks from the doorstep are lovely with panoramic views across the moors.The location is handy for the coast being a short drive to Whitby or Robin Hoods Bay.

Jackie and John are very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely stay with them again.
