Having spent many weeks in lockdown it was wonderful to have a weeks holiday in the the North York Moors. Dairy House is a very comfortable cottage set in a lovely little village. All preparations had been made to reassure us that the accommodation was free from and would remain safe from Covid. Unfortunately the village pub was not able to offer food, but with Pickering ten minutes down the road there was a choice of several establishments offering takeaway meals. The cottage is well equipped if you are happy to self cater. We know the area very well but still found new places to visit and a warm welcome was assured where ever we went. The only disappointment was that the railway was not due to start running again until 1st August.

I was particularly impressed to find that the owners had supplied replacement appliances for the kitchen in case of failure.. We managed to break the kettle switch, rang the Cleaner, and were guided to a 'secret' cupboard containing replacements. Absolutely marvellous service!

Cosy comfortable cottage.. Everything available for our needs. The directions and key collection very good. Would not hesitate in returning to this property if in that area again.

The Dairy House is a lovely place to stay.. It is very spacious and comfortable. The house is spotlessly clean and very welcoming. It is set in a quiet location next to a farm, and the surrounding scenery is beautiful. It has a lovely homely feel and is very well equipped. There is a downstairs bedroom and shower room which are very handy for disabled guests. There is a friendly pub nearby which serves good food. The owner is very helpful, as is the lady who looks after the place. Nothing is too much trouble, and a lot of thought has gone into making this house a real home from home. I would highly recommend Dairy House and would definitely stay there again.

Lovely cottage, plenty of space, very quiet setting, local pub just a few yards away and served lovely food, and very friendly.. A short drive to Pickering and about 45mins to the coast. Cottage was very well equipped and has a real fire to light on cold nights. Would recommend for a quiet break or a base to explore. Beautifully kept.

The most beautiful cottage and location we've ever stayed at.. The children loved it,my husband and I didn't want to come home! So much to do in the local area and the views were amazing. Definitely recommend to friends and family and we can't wait to go again!

Dairy House is a very comfortable cottage, in an ideal location for lots of days out. Our grandchildren particularly enjoyed the steam train to Whitby, as we did too. We have made several visits to this lovely part of Yorkshire and it never lets us down.
Mrs Smith

We all absolutely loved the Dairy house. A real home from home and in an excellent location. We plan to go back when we can. It was easy to get to all the places we wanted to visit and we loved the quiet of the evenings. An excellent cottage in an excellent location.

This is a delightful cottage, a real 'home from home' especially with the mixed Yorkshire weather. It is cosy and welcoming and would suit a larger group as well as just a couple their dog as we were. The village pub is just 50 yards away, friendly serving good beer local, home cooked food. Newton-upon-Rawcliffe is ideally placed 4 miles from Pickering which offers a variety of small, local food shops supermarkets. It also has take-away food outlets. The Coast at Whitby is a mere 20 miles drive away all surrounded by the North Yorkshire Moors.

An interesting, comfortable property in the centre of great walking area. Lovely cosy place to spend a day in, but also a quick easy drive to Pickering and onwards. The owner has given a lot of thought and attention to making the cottage work for guests. We enjoyed the log burner which was easy to get going. The utility area was great for bikes and muddy boots, and the village is very scenic for little strolls.
Mr Briggs

A wonderful base for exploring the North York Moors and East Yorkshire coast. Miles of paths and tracks easily accessible directly from the cottage.
August 2014
Lovely quiet location with comfortable rooms and a good friendly pub close by. The walking and scenery was spectacular. Loved the steam railway with the old fashioned stations. York was a good day out there was so much history to see and Whitby was fun especially if you like fish n chips. The local ales were all tasted most more than once. What a great holiday I will be back.

The cottage is spacious and well appointed. It is in a peaceful location adjoining a farm. The village is a few miles from a town so a car is essential. A good venue for walking and for touring by car.

Very comfortable cottage in relaxing surroundings. We liked being able to go for long walks straight from the property, and the excellent pub nearby was an added bonus!
Mrs Want

The house is in a good location - far enough away from the main town to be totally relaxing but central enough to get to all local towns via a car. The local pub was very welcoming serving good food. A lovely cottage with a farmhouse feel.

A lovely, deceptively spacious and well equipped cottage in a great location for exploring the moors and coast. There are some stunning walks from the doorstep which take you right into the heart of the moors. Thanks for a really relaxing holiday.

The Dairy Cottage had a cosy, homely feel to it and is in such a lovely setting. The children enjoyed feeding the ducks on the green and loved the play area just down the road. The grown ups very much appreciated the bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival and taking in the beautiful scenery.
