"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 S15578 is great."

"I stayed at Kestrel Cottage with my 96 year old mother in law. I had chosen the property for its wetroom, bedrooms all on one level and it's proximity to Durham. The cottage far exceeded all my expectations. It is much bigger than the photographs suggest, bathrooms, hallways and living area are very spacious. Everything is very new, tasteful and not worn out or shabby. The beds are really comfortable and the linen is good quality.The main living room is south facing so it's light, and bright. The views from the two full length windows are stunning, open fields and countryside. We were visited every morning by two friendly goats at the fence by the patio. Most afternoons we watched parachuters descending to an area about a half a mile away. All most entertaining.We could park at the door which was very helpful as my mother in law couldn't walk too far. In the wetroom there are handles to aid the not so steady. The owner kindly brought us a proper shower seat too, which was so useful.Even though very early in the year we found a lot to do in the area. Durham is nearby, we went several times. I highly recommend the Oriental Museum, we visited the botanical garden, cathedral and castle. The Hartlepool maritime museum was excellent. We went to Gateshead quay. Just a couple of miles away we went to the big outlet shopping centre and the coastal towns and coast road are on the doorstep. All this to do, and then at the end of a busy day out the cottage was a relaxing, warm and welcoming home to come back to.Jean the owner was friendly and helpful, she lives nearby but wasn't intrusive at all. The welcome pack was extremely generous, including eggs, bread, milk. Kestrel Cottage was an excellent choice for our holiday and we were delighted with everything we found there."

"Our second stay at S15578 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."

"S15578 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 S15578 when we return to Yorkshire in the future,and would recommend to friends and family.Thank you"

"We enjoyed a super holiday at S15100. The house is well situated with lovely views to front and back. The layout out inside is very practical with a large sitting room, large kitchen-diner ( with doors opening out onto the patio/garden) and good-sized bedrooms. The house was very well equipped with more than enough crockery, cutlery glasses etc.. The bathrooms and en-suite shower rooms were spacious with lovely fittings. Wifi and phone signal both excellent.There is a pub 150 yards away and about 300 yards is the railway station with trains to Whitby. It's a very friendly line but not very punctual!The house is very well placed for a number of lovely walks. The two shops (post office/store and butcher's) are about a mile away. The roads into and around the village are very steep ( up to 1 in 3) so we were not sorry not to have taken our bikes!A great holiday in an area we didn't know at all well before."
