Levisham is a beautiful village with a lovely pub right next to Primrose Cottage and Rectory Farm. The cottage was superb - lovely little extras of fresh flowers and homemade bread, lemon drizzle cake (to die for!) and fresh eggs. Michael and Heather made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend!

Beautifully warm, homely and spacious cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Back in December my wife & 18 month old son stayed for a few nights for my birthday. We were warmly welcomed with freshly baked lemon drizzle cake and eggs from the chickens. We had a fantastic stay visiting Whitby and Dalby Forest (which has the best adventure playground for ALL ages). Levisham is an amazingly secluded little place with a wonderful pub at the end of the road, a minutes walk from the cottages/B&B. A stay at Rectory Farm is a must. We'll certainly be back. 10/10

Cosy clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this very well equipped clean, and cosy cottage where lots of delicious food goodies awaited us. Thankyou Heather and Michael for the freshly baked bread, cake, and other useful items. We enjoyed walks from the door, visiting the coast, and loved the pub a few steps from the door serving delicious food. Thanks again Helen and John Nottm

Lovely quaint cottage in a fabulous small village location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in a beautiful area. The cottage had all we needed and the owners were very helpful and even left us some milk, cake and bread. What more could you ask for

The small village has its own pub serving real ales and there are several walks you can do without even getting in the car. The Station is a 1.5 mile walk and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is great with many old trains that bring back memories for us oldies.We used this to go to Goathland and did a walk around that area before returning on the train.

Lovely area of Yorkshire - well worth a visit
