The Coach House has comfy rattan seating in the sunny courtyard garden. We have known people to go home with a tan in March!. As we only take children of 13 years and over the environment is very calming and two people have told us that they have not had to take sleeping tablets during their stay with us. People have commented that when you are in our little haven it feels like it is giving you a big comforting hug, but you can judge that for yourself! That is one of the things that we noticed when we bought the property but it is nice that other people have felt it too. We opened in 2014 and have already had guests returning again and again. A complimentary bottle of wine is left for each stay. From January 2017 we are able to take card payments over the telephone. Please phone or text your initial enquiry if you are not booking via the owners direct website. See More Details below

OUR GUEST BOOK
"Luxury high quality accommodation, the best bathroom we have ever had, including hotels. Bothams the bakers shop in Sleights is the best. Wonderful to get up each morning and see the horses in the field. Thank you Rob and Julie"
"Throughly enjoyed our stay yet again.... we love coming over to stay, this is our third time and we will be back again. We always go home refreshed and relaxed and it's just the perfect tonic for my recovery from my illness, see you soon".
" Thank you Julie and Robert for fantastic cottage. Everything we hoped for and more. Really lovely place, thoroughly enjoyed the area and hope to make a return visit sometime. Neo our dog loved the walks but wasn't too keen on the dog bath outside ( which we thought was brilliant)"
"We have had a lovely stay in your most beautiful cottage. It's definitely the best place we have stayed with our dogs. Your attention to detail is fabulous. We have explored the countryside and coast and have worn the dogs out on a daily basis ( particularly loved Sandsend beach (as you can park for one hour for 20p) Homeward bound now to start the diet! Wishing you much success and we will certainly recommend Cliff Farm. Hope to be back one day soon"
"Totally agree with all the great comments about Mr Ralph's cottage: brilliant, very relaxing and a great location. Sandsend excellent. We've had a lovely time, looking forward to booking again"
"A lovely week at Mr Ralphs cottage, perfect location and as echoed by other guests, the best we have ever stayed in, home and abroad. It has been great to re-visit N Yorkshire after at least 20 years plus, and get to see all the lovely sights and beaches again. Many thanks to Robert and Julie and hope that they continue to build on the success of the cottages. The wine on arrival most welcome"
" A lovely cottage, filled with quality furnishings and fittings, it was a pleasure coming back each evening after an exhausting but highly enjoyable trip out. Location is stunning with so many interesting beautiful places to visit nearby. We made good use of the guide book provided. We shall be back next year without a doubt"
" Thank you so much for a fantastic stay in The Coach House Cottage. Your cottage is so warm, welcoming and delightful. We have loved every minute of our visit. Thank you Julie and Rob for being so friendly and helpful. You are very lucky people to live in such a beautiful setting. We would not hesitate to recommend to our family and friends"
"We have stayed in so many luxury cottages and yours is up there with the best. Robert and Julie are fantastic hosts, their taste is impeccable and we are so impressed by their attention to detail. the level of comfort and luxury which they provide is amazing. We've had a great time choosing from their extensive range of CD's, so many we could not get through them all. Oh well, as if we needed an excuse , we'll just have to come back to listen to some more!! Thank you so much"
" The Coach House, what a beautiful place, 3 nights were just not long enough, everything finished to such a high standard by Robert and Julie. Must return and maybe try out Mr Ralphs cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay to celebrate Kennys 60th Birthday, then on to another barn conversion to meet up with family, hope it's half as good as this one and we'll be satisfied. Thank you both"
