It has been thoughtfully renovated to provide light and comfortable accommodation for a couple looking for a romantic break in a beautiful region of the country. The living area is on open plan and gives the property a spacious feel, the fitted kitchen is modern and well equipped with a pleasant dining area and the sitting room is light and airy overlooking the attractive garden. The first floor bedroom is bright and relaxing, just right for a good night's rest after a day's activities. The well-appointed bathroom completes the accommodation, while outside there is a charming shared wall garden and the pub is only two minutes away. The property is finished and decorated to a high standard and makes an ideal retreat for a holiday.
Area The charming and tiny village of Levisham lies six miles to the north of Pickering and consists of delightful stone cottages, farms and a village green. There is a church and pub in the village, whilst there are shops 6 miles away in Pickering. The Hole of Horcum is a section of the valley of the Levisham Beck, which flows along a steep, wooded valley and culminates in a small waterfall and water mill at its foot. There is a labyrinth of footpaths and trails through some breathtaking scenery and the station at Levisham is a stopping point for the North York Steam Railway. The area is perfectly placed for exploring all the historic houses, castles, towns and villages in this stunning and diverse region.
Region The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.
Stable cottage was perfect had all facilities we needed.. In a beautiful village was soo quiet
The owner was lovely and always there if needed. Would definitely visit again in the future
Very comfortable little cottage in a quiet village ideal for walking out on to the moors or into the wooded valleys around the village.. A short, very picturesque walk (or drive) to Levisham station on North York Moors railway - which sadly was not open during our visit due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Only that the cottage was ideal the owner very friendly the surrounding area great dog walking,everything was positive.. Thank you.
Lovely cottage in a perfect location Heather the owner was very welcoming and the complimentary cakes were a nice touch.the cottage it self was very clean warm and well stocked with every thing you would need for a pleasant stay.
The Horseshoe pub up the road does fantastic food I advise to book a table it gets very busy. Would my wife and I come again yes for sure .if their is a p.s.the Loo seat in the cottage is a bit wobbly.
But overall 10/10 .
Very nice stay lovely welcome touch tea and cake the cottage is in a lovely .... Very nice stay lovely welcome touch tea and cake the cottage is in a lovely tranquil setting with beautiful scenic walks
The cottage is clean and comfortable in a great location for walking.. We took two dogs and the only small downside is that the advert states that it has a secure garden ,yes it does but it is not attached to the cottage but across a drive and is shared by other people with dogs.
I really wouldnt class this as a four star cottage at all.. The toilet seat was broken, the two seater couch is not comfy for two people to sit on at the same time. We had to pay £4.50 to rent a small and large towel. Ive stayed in sykes cottages before which had towels in it and didnt charge you to use them. The woman said all sykes cottage landlords charge rent to use the towels. This is not true and that is why we dont take towels with us.
A very happy customer, lovely cottage (2nd visit), 10 out of 10
The only comment I have - and it's not meant to be a negative one - is that the WiFi as advertised was very poor due to the slow broadband speed in the village.. No fault of the owners! I managed to connect to the internet once during the week. It didn't make any difference to a great holiday but I mention it.
Very warm welcoming by Heather.. Also very helpful lady. Went out of her way to help.
Cottage had everything you needed.
The owner of the cottage was very friendly and provided us with everything we needed including a very welcome tray with homemade cakes.. The cottage was lovely and cosy and very clean,and the bedding was immaculate. The garden was well kept and secure so our dog enjoyed a good romp in it.
The village of Levisham is very pretty with lovely walks in the surrounding area and the pub serves tasty meals and a nice pint. We look forward to a return visit to Stable Cottage
The cottage was very comfortable, owner very friendly and welcoming..
Lovely cosy cottage, lots of little extra touches to make it really welcoming.. Very friendly owners , very clean, very well equipped. Great base for getting about, good for dog walking would recommend it.
Situated in a quiet country village with an friendly pub (The Horseshoe) serving excellent meals (note at this time of year the pub seems to be closed on Monday and Tuesdays). We had a warm welcome from the cottage owners, with a tray of home made cakes and tea/coffee. Stable cottage is cosy and warm although a larger sofa would be more comfortable. There was everything for a self catering holiday in the cottage and there is a large upright freezer in the shed next door, so if you want to take frozen food from home it is ideal. A walk down to the railway station provided lovely views but beware it is very steep coming back. If you are not a vegetarian, try to find Glaves butchers in Brompton by Sawden - excellent fresh meat and pies. We did most of our grocery shopping at Lidl in Pickering but there are also local markets worh a visit (we visited Northalerton on the way to Levisham and picked up fresh fruit/veg and bread from there.Hope everyone enjoys the area as much as we did.
Very small cottage in a nice location. It includes everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Bath was a bonus after those long walks.
The cottage is not owned by Skye cottages but lilac cottages, Levisham, just google and you can see all 4 cottages which are available.
Sorry I don't have time today to write a longer review, message me if you have any questions. Enjoy your stay

A smart property, as described in a fantastic location. Very friendly owners.
The cottage was very well and thoughtfully equipped. Beautiful surroundings. Lovely welcome-tea and cakes in the property.
The cottage was located in a beautiful part of Yorkshire, in a nice village. The owner was very welcoming and showed us all the features of the cottage, when we arrived.
Peace like they invented it in North Yorks and never told anyone else. Our hosts were so welcoming yet you felt like it truly was your property for the week. A great base to relax in, and readers should try a quick drive to York then get on the park n ride. A very well run service, Monk's Cross is the closest terminal!
Very friendly and helpful atmosphere with the family and whole village. Garden very pleasant. Local pub/restaurants friendly with excellent food. Great walking country, with wonderful views.
The standard of the property was excellent- the friendliness of the owner and of the people in the village. The proximity of local walks and nearby resorts-Whitby
The location is excellent with plenty of walking from the door. A nice cosy warm cottage, which I would visit again.
A very quiet and peacefull location, good walks and locations close by. eg. York, Whitby and Pickering which we were lucky to arrive at on their World War2 weekend.
The cottage was beautiful in a picturesque village.
An excellent centre from which to explore both the North Yorks Moors and Coastline. The owners were very attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend the holiday cottage and area.
