What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In North Yorkshire To Rent.

carol - verified booking

"the location of this cottage is quite superb. the most stunning views over open countryside from the lounge, bedrooms and conservatory. We arrived just before the snow and had two days wondering the local roads with our dog. Very reminiscent of where we used to live in Hereford but here within a short walking distance glorious panoramic views of the sea at Sandsend. The weather went from snow to beautiful spring so we were also able to take short cuts on the many footpaths and through the beautiful Mulgrave Estate. We were able to walk to Whitby along the beach and shortened our route by parking for free in the nearby village of Lythe, From there it is a walk down a steep hill into Sandsend but well worth doing that because the view is fabulous. You do have to climb the steep hill back otherwise there is plenty of parking in Sandsend. The conservatory is heated so we sat in there having afternoon tea watching pheasants and deer right across the valley. A great bonus. Be aware there are no shops within walking distance so you do have to drive to the community shop at Lythe (2 minutes) even to get milk. The house is very spacious and very homely. It is not like some of the show home holiday cottages we have rented in Cornwall but there is everything you need. Television is quite restricted and no Wifi but our phone reception was very good. Like other reviewers we couldn't get the DVD to work but we think this was a problem with the lead connection and we left a message for the owners.The shed with the table tennis was very handy for cleaning up our dog after some very muddy walks. There is a sink and cold water tap in that shed but it is cold in there when the weather is bad.We holiday all across England with our dog and I have to say Whitby and Robin Hood Bay have to be the prettiest seaside resorts I have seen. They are clean and well cared for and a vast improvement on what they were like when I visited 20 years ago. We found a wonderful cafe in Whitby by the Captain Cook museum with really friendly staff and very welcoming to dogs. In fact I think it was a cafe for dogs who were allowed to take their owners in. Very nice coffee and cakes. There is a superb walk along a disused railway line from Ravenscar to Robin hood bay and you can go back along Cleveland way. We didn't get much walking done on the Yorkshire moors because it was extremely boggy from many days of rain in February but we shall certainly go back later in the season to do more walking.The beach at Sandsend and Whitby and Runswick bay, all very close to this cottage ,are the equal of Cornwall. This is a very dog friendly area and very much overlooked as an holiday destination and Gunpowder House is great."

"Our second stay at Gunpowder House which was as good as the first. It is an excellent, peaceful and private cottage in lovely surroundings. The garden was beautiful with autumn just arriving and the views are great. It was a bit chilly at night but the very efficient heating soon saw to that. The only minor downsides we can think of is the distance from where you park your car to the house and it is up quite a steep incline, which could be an issue for people with limited mobility. Having said that, you could park outside the front of the house to drop people and stuff off but the path is still a little steep though not too bad. There is no Wi-Fi but a there is good 4G signal. The welcome pack was minimal compared to other cottages we've stayed at but it's not a deal breaker. Our dog loved the enclosed garden and there are nearby walks to enjoy. Whitby is less than 15 minutes drive away and on the way in a stop at Sandsend is recommended. Other nearby local attractions are Runswick Bay, (check tide times first as when it comes in it's in!), and Scaling Reservoir. A bit further away is the village of Goathland, of course famous for being Heartbeat's filming location, and the North Yorkshire Moors. We will definitely be back again."

"Gunpowder House is just amazing. The view is incredible, with being on a hill the house overlooks beautiful open countryside and livestock. I have never witnessed so many varieties of birds and being May they were nesting in the bushes outside the windows.The house was clean and comfortable,with all the necessary equipment. Retaining its homely feel. The welcome basket was the very best we have ever had and we really enjoyed the good quality treats. The garage outside which has been converted into a games room,with a full size table tennis table provided us with lots of fun.The only detail you will need to be aware of is it is a bit of a steep garden to get suitcases into the property. It would be an idea to pack 2 small suitcases instead of 1 large one. However I would still give it 10/10. We look forward to booking Gunpowder House when we return to Yorkshire in the future,and would recommend to friends and family.Thank you"

"Very clean and tidy, well situated, a nice welcoming pack and having all the equipment required for home catering. The large garden was well kept and we didnt find the distance from the car parking area to the house as problematic as others appear to, as you can park on the road outside to load and unload.The one disappointment we did have is that on arrival we found that there is a house rule that dogs must not be left unattended, which was problematic as it was our intention to eat out each evening. This should be made clear at the booking stage, as it did have an effect on the overall quality of our holiday and we would not have booked this property if we had known of this house rule.Wi-fi and a larger television would also enhance the property but for persons with a dog who are happy to eat in, and who enjoy walking and excellent scenery it is a very pleasant place to stay."

"Terrific place, just myself, my wife and our little dog. We had everything that we needed, a cooker, a fridge (although small, big enough for us - we were only there four days), a bath with a shower attachment which served its purpose and added to the fun. A TV, a sofa (a little worn and sunken), a bed(a bit too soft), a nice patio and a brilliant view from the French windows. The cottage is in a quiet cul-de-sac and is only a ten minute drive into Whitby or five to Sandsend where you can take your dog on the far end of the beach (can’t do that at Whitby) and also good food at The Hart. The owners live next door, Claire and Andy, and are so very helpful and are nice people.It beats me why people complain and want plush furnishings and all the amenities close at hand, the price is good value and we would (if we go to Whitby again) certainly consider Linden Cottage again"
