We have had a lovely week, the weather has been brilliant, we have been able to do a lot of things within the Covid regulations and Damson Croft is a beautiful base to return to in the evening.. The garden there is glorious if anyone just wanted to stay in Lastingham for their whole visit.

The cottage was listed as having wifi, which is one of the reasons we booked it (had an on-line meeting, a training course and a deadline to meet during the week we were there)- there was no wifi connection- our host said that even at the best of times their wifi could be patchy, because they are in a rural area, he said he'd tried a couple of things to connect us, but our gadgets (work dell lap top, chrome notebook and apple ipad) all came up with being out of range.. The host's house was around 10 meters from Damson Lodge. Host told us to try to get connected in the bedroom which gets a stronger signal- but the signal was no better there. We've never had a problem with wifi connection in other rural areas where wifi was advertised as one of the facilities. We had to go to the pub to send emails explaining why we hadn't attended the meeting and the training course, and had to miss the deadline. To be fair, the pub was very welcoming and understanding. When advertising a cottage as having wifi, Sykes should ensure it is noted as being reliable or not- Damson Croft should not have wifi listed at all- it simply didn't have a signal.

Very good lovely garden and location, when toaster broke it was immediately replaced.. Wi-Fi speed was slow

A wonderful little cottage in a beautiful location.. The children loved playing in the garden and feeding the chickens. Lots of different birds and insects to spot and we enjoyed seeing a hedgehog trotting up and down the lawn in the evenings. Lastingham is a beautiful little village and well situated for many lovely day trips and local adventures. Owners are very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We’ll be booking again another year.

Damson Croft is in a lovely spot, ,the cottage is located in the owners garden which is large and beautiful, full of adventure for kids and quiet spots for adults.. The cottage itself has everything you could need for a break. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Damson Croft for the second time, and it won't be the last. It's a super cottage in a beautiful garden. So peaceful and quiet. Very relaxing and well equipped. We really did not want to leave after the best two weeks we've ever had in a cottage. The area is a ramblers heaven, straight from the door. We really should be keeping it a secret so it doesn't get booked up for when we want to go again, but it deserves five stars ***** You will not be disappointed with this place.

We enjoyed a week here although it was cold and wet early in the week we still had fun The Blacksmiths Arms does wonderful food, it's best to book.. ,you can order a take away from them too. The garden is beautiful, we had great entertainment watching the chickens and pheasant. All good no problems.

The cottage was well placed to allow visiting places of interest and was in a very peaceful and relaxing location.. The cottage is close to the village pub which serves excelent food and beer and is everthing a good pub should be

Damson cottage is set in the lovely owner's garden.. It is only a short walk to reach the open moors, which in early June had nesting curlew, lapwings and golden plover etc. The cottage was very comfortable for the two of us and we were made welcome by the owner. We wouldn't hesitate to make another visit when the opportunity arises.

This was the best holiday we have had in a while, we had incredible weather and the owners have done a magnificent job with the surrounding gardens and the cottage is very nice and comfortable.. I would advise anyone holidaying there to take plenty of food and make sure your car has plenty of fuel in it as there are no shops or filling stations. There is a good pub for the occasional meal and the area is good for walking albeit quite hilly. Because the area is in a dip in the valley some people may experience problems receiving a phone signal as there is no mast due to it being a conservation area. I would certainly recommend this holiday cottage to anyone wanting a quiet peaceful experience you will not be disappointed.

Superb peaceful location in lovely, quiet garden and village.. Hosts very welcoming and helpful. The accommodation is simple but perfectly adequate - it suited us well.

Damson Croft is set in a wonderful garden.. Looking out of the bedroom window we saw pheasants under the bird table with the chickens that live there and small birds too. The daffodils were not all in flower yet but some lambs could be heard bleating from the fields over the fence. Before we left we saw red legged partridges at the back of the property. Inside is warm and cosy with plenty of hot water for a relaxing bath after a day out. There is everything that you need if you want to cook a meal and books and DVDs are also available as well as the TV. The Blacksmith's Arms is the local pub in Lastingham and was pleasant and welcoming, we did not eat there but there were plenty of people ordering evening meals in advance. We have visited twice in the Spring now and maybe a holiday at a different time of year would be our next trip there.

The host was friendly and helpful .. The location is perfect for a relaxing time away and with fantastic walks on the doorstep. The host makes delicious honey and has a big lovely garden In which the cottage is set .

It is a charming sort of 1930s type chalet cottage with a lovely period feel about it.. Well decorated, warm and comfortable (as we found out on a very wet, windy night), has all the facilities required for a very pleasant stay. Robert, the owner, is great. So helpful. Gave us the free use of his one acre garden which is delightful. The location is brilliant. Perfect peace and tranquillity in a very picturesque setting. The most relaxing break we have had in a long time. Will stay again.

Damson Croft is a beautiful little getaway, wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the peace and tranquility and to appreciate the fantastic garden more.. Our boys thought it was the best holiday ever and loved everything about it.

We have just returned from a thoroughly enjoyable week at Damson Croft.. The cottage itself is compact and well heated. It has a spacious double bedroom and also a second bedroom with two single beds in. The living area has a comfortable settee and the eating space has all required resources within easy reach. In the bathroom there is plenty of hot water. The garden in which the cottage is situated is absolutely beautiful with beehives and chickens. It stretches back in a variety of areas with seating under the trees and if the weather had been better we would have made much more use of it. It blends in with the surrounding countryside and the sheep were our nearest neighbours. From Damson Croft we had many trips out during the week. We chose Scarborough and Whitby, Castle Howard and Yorkshire Lavender, the Yorkshire Air Museum, the National Falconry Centre and Rievaulx Abbey, and the Mouseman Centre but we could easily have visited a lot more if time had allowed. A lovely holiday.

The hosts were friendly and welcoming. The garden is very beautiful, full of interest and it was just lovely to wake up to that incredible view every morning. The cottage is comfortable and spacious. The location provides the perfect base for exploring the surrounding moors and woods as well as for trips to the coast. We ate at the local pub in Lastingham one night. The food there was really good and the staff were very accommodating to our two year old.

Set in a beautiful village this last minute booking over Easter was much better than we had hoped for. Excellent hosts and perfect surroundings for a very relaxing weekend break.

The cottage was in a very pleasant, quiet location which we appreciated. The host was friendly but did not intrude on our privacy.
Mrs Pimlott

A warm welcome from the owners. Lovely furnishings and very well equipped. The cottage was set in beautiful, well kept gardens with bee hives, frequent visits from a family of pheasants and abundant bird life. The situation of this cottage is ideal for walkers as there are numerous moorland walks right from the doorstep. Once we had arrived we didn't really have to use the car.

The marvellous garden and the absolute peace and quiet. A good starting point to explore and visit the Moors.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Damson Croft; the surroundings were so peaceful and it was a very relaxing retreat with our two teenage boys. The grounds are lovely and, even though some of the days we stayed were quite wet, it was super to go out exploring and return to the warm environment of the cottage which is very well equipped - a real home from home! The absence of shower, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer didn't phase us - it was actually quite refreshing to wash up and to not have to think about laundry - after all, we were on holiday! The nearby towns have a wealth of high quality restaurants and facilities and we were certainly never stuck for something to do. We definitely plan to stay there again, so that is a testament to how great the place is...

A super cottage with excellent facilities in a beautiful setting. The owners who are on site, are very helpful, friendly and approachable and nothing is too much trouble.
