Lovely cottage in a fantastic location.. Only met host briefly but seemed a really nice guy. Offered lots of suggestions on walks, places to visit and eat. Had a great few days thank you

Had great holiday the cottage was better that I hoped, The owners were very helpful and friendly.. we were situated just outside Staithes which was an easy walk away, all other resorts/beaches was in easy reach by car. really enjoyed our stay

Wonderful cottage well maintained, equipped and cleaned, cozy and warm.. Owners are very welcoming and friendly who live next door. Fox & Hounds literally 3 min walk a friendly pub with great food and pint £2.50. Fantastic location with 15 min walk into Staithes. Excelsiors Fish & Chips were very good under 10 min walk. Capt Cooks Inn great paddle of ale. Thought Cod & Lobster were overrated on their food. Lovely walks from cottage. Saltburn was a nice Victorian seaside town. Gt Ayton was lovely we parked at Capt Cooks monument and walked a circular round up to Rosebery Topping wonderful views. We had a great holiday.

Lovely little cottage located in a very quiet location just a 20 minute drive to whitby, nice little pub 2 minute walk away, but unfortunately wasn't doing food with the current situation of the world.. Owner's of the cottage Gérard Elaine Tom and Amie where lovely and friendly and would definitely recommend and will be looking at booking again next year Jamie & Karen

This cottage is perfect for a family of four, separate bedrooms for the children and a downstairs loo too! Lovely and clean with a sweet welcome basket on arrival which was unexpected and a lovely touch. Dalehouse is the perfect location to explore lots of lovely beaches and villages, nothing is more than 10 minutes away by car. We visited Whitby, Sands End, Runswick Bay, Saltburn and of course Staithes. Gerard even took our two children (plus husband!) on a tour of the farm via quad bike which made all of their days!! We will most definitely be visiting again!

Lovely cottage.. Only booked two nights here for the weekend. Great location - a short walk to Staithes harbour. Appreciated the welcome treats and was sorry we did not get a chance to thank the owners for these. Can definitely recommend.
Mr Robertson, July 2020

This cottage was absolutely spotless and equipped with everything we could have needed, I would highly recommend it to anyone.. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful and were on site to help, but did not encroach on our break at all- the perfect hosts. They even left some welcome treats appropriate to the covid situation. The area in which the cottage lies is amazing, just a short walk into Staithes, but the actual hamlet is lovely and peaceful- a lovely place to sit and have a quiet drink after a day of exploring this beautiful area.

This cottage was the best cottage we have stayed in.. It was well equipped with everything we needed and more. The hosts,Gerrard and Elaine, were very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. There were biscuits, chocolate, tea coffee, sugar and milk waiting for us on our arrival. I can't praise them and their cottage enough. Would definitely stop there again and will be recommending them to our family and friends.

We had a lovely time at the Post Box cottage, it was in a great setting and the owners were very friendly and welcoming.. We were also left a small welcome pack with chocolate, biscuits and milk. Lovely walks near by and a 10 minute walk to Staithes.

Mr Hirst, June 2019

Lovely situated property approached down a steep hill - village is in a valley.. Your mobile phone will not work here - only if you go to a higher place. As the property is a converted farm barn there is no garden to sit out in but at the front of the property there is small stone patio supplied with a table, bench and chairs which overlooks the road into the village and properties opposite which are pleasant. The facilities in the cottage were excellent, very modern and clean. The owners were very helpful living next door nothing was too much trouble for them. Would recommend if you are aware that there is no garden.

Fantastic cottage and location, had every thing we needed and it was lovely being there at lambing time.. Gerard the farmer was happy to chat about the farm and the local area. I believe the info said limited Wi-Fi but this was fine just no mobile reception as it's in a dip.
April 2019
We stayed in Post Box cottage which was ideal as it had 3 bedrooms ( 1 double and 2 single) for a very reasonable price. It was clean and well equipped and an ideal spot for walking the Cleveland Way. We were there at lambing time and Gerard was always happy to discuss the farm and local area even though there was lots going on with lambs being born every day. This is a very hilly area and you can't walk more than 1/4 mile without a slope - we live in Suffolk so are not used to so many hills. Wifi was good but no reception for text messages.

Lovely cottage, very well located and well kitted out without being cluttered.. The welcome pack of chocolate, biscuits and milk was much appreciated. The owners were available if needed and very helpful, but not obtrusive. There is an excellent pub 5 minutes walk away. We would definitely stay again if we are in the area.

A very good cottage away from main roads but ideally placed for easy access to coastal towns and moors. The owners were very good and there was an excellent pub one minute walk away. Will use this property again in the future.
