Self-Catering Reviews

February 2023
Absolutely loved this cottage, very modern, clean and cosy. Lovely welcome gift of some goodies. Plenty of cooking equipment. Great shower and modern bathroom. Cute little garden and parking right by the cottage. Great views around and location short drives to surrounding places like Whitby and Scarborough. Would visit again.
October 2020
A really lovely cottage, finished to a high standard. We have stayed in a lot of self- catering places and this is one of the best. Very well equipped kitchen with everything you need. Bathroom has separate bath and spacious shower. Great location for walking, including direct from the cottage. The Cleveland Way and Whitby to Scarborough cinder track are nearby and it is easy to devise circular walks of any length. Stunning coastal scenery. Between Whitby and Scarborough which are both interesting for a day out.

Mrs Carmichael

Considering we went at the worst time ever we had a lovely break.. We were there when the beast from the east decided to visit. Being southerners it was a challenge, but despite the weather we had a lovely time. Cara and her husband made sure we were ok in such extreme circumstances. I can not thank them enough and we would definitely go back again. Thank you Linda and Pete.

May 2017
My husband and I have just returned from four nights at Dairy Cottage and it's been wonderful. Beautifully modern cottage, perfect for a couple wanting away from it all with great links. The cottage was immaculate and was fully equipped (the lack of wifi was a welcome escape!) Only 20 minutes from Whitby and with great local pubs. Very friendly dog welcomed us on our arrival and we did have a very flighty uninvited guest (keep the front door closed!) in the shape of a swift. Perfect little cottage, would return and recommend in a heart beat!

The cottage was in a beautiful quiet spot with great views to the sea. The bathroom was amazing, with a whirlpool bath and heated floor! The kitchen was well equipped. It was equal distance from Whitby and Scarborough so we were able to get out and about and enjoy both places.
Mrs Otten
April 2016
The location was good for exploring the North Yorkshire coast and the North Yorkshire Dales. The cottage was very warm and comfortable especially as the nights were chilly. The bed was spacious and comfortable and the cottage was clean. Having no dogs and no carpets was ideal for me with allergies.
Ms Beresford
March 2016
The location was ideal to visit the resorts of Whitby and Scarborough and also the small fishing villages in between. The cottage was ideal for the two of us and our hosts were incredibly helpful to us. The cottage was equipped well and had extras not normally in cottages.

The cottage was away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the views were fantastic and the cottage itself was set out beautifully. The spa bath was a lovely feature as was the wood burner, very cosy. Would love to return in the future. Well done to the owners for creating a very romantic and cosy cottage!!
Mrs Dewfield
September 2014
The isolation of the cottage suited us as we wanted to recharge our batteries. We knew what to expect as friends have previously stayed here. The log burner is a lovely touch on a cooler evening. The property is converted to a high standard and very well maintained.
Mr Whittaker
September 2014
Overall a first class cottage, the fixtures and fittings were all modern and of a high standard. Very good value for money on par with National trust cottages which we use regularly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to other couples.
Mrs Taylor

The holiday was exactly what we had hoped for. The location was perfect for everywhere we wanted to visit and the cottage was ideal in every way.
Mrs Pearson
May 2014
This cottage certainly had the WOW factor. The decor was lovely, the furnishings beautiful and the scenery, when you opened the front door first thing in the morning, was something you would want to see every day - sheep, horses and rolling fields. The location of this cottage is a photographer's delight. We enjoyed everything about the cottage and would certainly recommend to family and friends.
Miss Miles

Mr Mundin
November 2013
Dairy Cottage was absolutely lovely, and the ideal property for two people. It is in a great location near to Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby thus making in a great base to explore the area. The cottage itself has been decorated to an extremely high standard and the addition of the log burner was a really nice touch. We really cannot fault it, and would definitely like to come back and spend a whole week rather than just a long weekend.
Mr Lee
October 2013

The cottage was beautiful, peaceful and set in lovely surroundings. It was within reach of local attractions and the countryside. We had a perfect six days away.
April 2013
owners could not be more helpful, even the well behaved dog visits you as return at the end of the day. The cottage has everything you could want and more lovely views of the local farmland no traffic passes at all 10 minutes from Scarborough, half hour from North Yorkshire Moors Railway and 25 minutes from whitby. an ideal place to tour from.

Beautifully modern cottage in a fantastic setting. Owners were discrete - on hand for anything but not in the slightest intrusive. A couple of lovely little touches; a Christmas tree and a wrapped box of chocolates. Good handbook, maps and suggestions. Perfect break
Miss Thomas
September 2012
View from cottage doorway was outstanding, we kept opening the door in the middle of the night to watch boats go by on the sea, a novelty when you come from landlocked Birmingham!
Mr Blockley
September 2012
Beautiful location and extremely well maintained property reflecting much thought in its design and quality of fixtures and fittings. The bathroom is especially well presented and the whirlpool bath extremely relaxing after a hard days walking.
September 2012
This must be about the best holiday cottage we have ever rented from any company. The fittings and equipment were top class, the bathroom the very best we have found in a holiday rental. It is located near to some stunning country side and coast with walks galore.
September 2012
The cottage was well situated for visiting the local towns of Whitby & Scarborough & the beautiful coastal scenery. The cottage was stylish and attractively decorated and had everything we needed. It was a great pleasure to stay there. The owner was friendly and helpful and even the dog was welcoming! We did not know the area prior to this visit and were very pleasantly surprised at how much there was to see and do. We will return one day and will have no hesitation in staying at Staintondale again. We would recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to stay in the area.
Mr Kenworthy
July 2012

beautifully finished modernised cottage and far enough away from tourist hoards but close enough to travel to see everything locally we really enjoyed staying there. the standard of the finishes was excellent and the owners made every effort to make us comfortable and we are already planning to go back. not a massive amount locally so def a place to escape for quiet weekend away and cant receommend highly enough.

Dairy Cottage was absolutely lovely with a very contemporary interior and modern appliances. The cottage was beautifully clean with a charming patio area where you could enjoy the evening sunshine. It is in an ideal location for exploring the Yorkshire coast and the moors, and the owner provides plenty of local guides and tourist information if required.
Mr Britland
May 2011
The process was easy to follow and the description on the site was correct. The accommodation was excellent and the host very helpful. The location was secluded enough to be away from general traffic noise for a quiet break but close enough to the main areas, Whitby and Scarborough, to allow for ease of days out.
Mrs Kitchen
May 2011
A beautiful cottage in a lovely location; peaceful but with lots to see and do right on the doorstep.
