Miss Hutchinson, February 2020
We spent a great holiday over Christmas at the Old Cart House with extended family.. It was lovely to arrive to a decorated Christmas tree and a bottle of wine waiting! The cottage was a great for the 7-10 of us and 2 dogs - everything is comfortable but also dog/kid friendly (e.g. easy clean carpets). The communal living / dining / kitchen area was great to allow everyone to be together while cooking etc. The open fire was amazing!
The location is wonderful, very remote and beautiful, on a road that doesn't go very much further up the valley, so very little traffic. Nevertheless Morrisons found us with our big Christmas food order and its not too far to driver further afield. Luckily it wasn't icy though as that could have been tricky. We had a great day out in Whitby. The pub in the village, the Feversham Arms, is highly recommended, for the food and the really friendly atmosphere, and we really enjoyed their Christmas eve quiz!
Only minor complaints would be that the fridge was a bit small (though as it was winter we could chill drinks etc outside), there was no cafetiere or corkscrew (luckily we came prepared with our own) and a little more cutlery would be useful.
