Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely cottage in peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a modern conversion of an older farm building resulting in a clean, pleasantly decorated, comfortable and very well equipped cottage.

The outdoor space available is good for children to safely play in and the walks from the doorstep are lovely with panoramic views across the moors.The location is handy for the coast being a short drive to Whitby or Robin Hoods Bay.

Jackie and John are very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely stay with them again.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this cottage, Jackie and John were very welcoming and friendly putting us at ease as soon as we arrived. The cottage was very welcoming and clean with everything we could possibly need for our stay. Our 2 year old was kept amused by the toys provided more so than the ones we brought with us! A Highchair was provided and we were offered the use of a stair gate too. The location was perfect for what we wanted, not too far from Whitby and a nice quiet location. Would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.

Lovely warm house in the middle of nowhere.

  • 4 of 5

A great place to get away from it all. Beautiful views, up close to the wildlife, with friendly hosts. We had two little ones who loved being on a farm. There are no amenities in walking distance but a short drive in the car gets you to Goathland. Underfloor heating from ground source heat pump meant that the house never felt cold. Definitely recommend for families and walkers alike.
