Fantastic cottage in a great location
We enjoyed a fantastic 5-night stay here. The cottage is in a lovely, quiet location that is perfect for exploring the local area and beyond. It is clean, really well equipped and has everything needed for your visit. John and Jackie are also wonderful hosts who go the extra mile to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it if you want the perfect spot near Whitby but in a idyllic location.
A lovely cottage in a beautiful location
We had a fantastic time at this beautifully clean (and it takes a lot to impress me!) cottage in stunning surroundings. Great to get away from the rat race and relax in the countryside. The cottage had everything we needed and the owners were very welcoming. We will definitely be back and have already recommended it to our parents to visit!
It was lovely to finally meet you, hopefully we can have more of a chat if you choose to return. Thank you for your positive comments it makes all the hard work worth it. We feel privileged to live in such a peaceful part of the North Yorkshire Moors.

Great setting on beautiful moorland
Cottage very clean & comfortable with welcoming, helpful owners. Very spacious and well equipped downstairs. Second bedroom upstairs restricted head room but still comfortable. A minor point but a couple more hooks or somewhere to hang towels upstairs would be a bonus. Overall, a very lovely place to stay.
Thank you for choosing to stay at Greenlands Farm and we're pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Your feedback is much appreciated and I take on board your comments.
Sending good wishes
Lovely and clean cottage.
Lovely cottage and received a warm welcome on arrival. Cottage had everything that we needed, children especially loved the Lego.
We found the countryside around the the cottage is spectacular, the cottage itself is cosy comfortable warm and very clean, we had a lovely four days there and would definitely go back again, the hosts couldn't be more helpful, with nothing being to much trouble.
Love little gem of a place thank you.
Lovely barn conversion in a fantastic rural setting
As others have commented - this really is a great little property to spend a week in.
The scenery around Greenlands Farm is something else and provides a great base for getting away from it all.
That said, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Scarborough and all the other tourist destinations are easily accessible by car.
The property itself is very well presented with all of the bits and bobs you could need for your stay.
Jackie and John are great hosts, ensuring you have everything you need for your stay and always willing to advise on things to see and do in the area.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending a break here and am sure that we will return in the future.
