Lovely Break, Great Cottage, Welcoming Owners.
Thanks to John and Jackie for the lovely warm welcome to their property. Myself and the Boys (5&7) had a great time , and my wife when she joined us too.
We loved the locality, the cottage was warm, beautifully presented and so comfy. Everything we needed was provided including the welcome milk and wine (very much needed in half term)
We will be back im sure.
Thanks again, Justin
Comfortable and very quiet
Our holiday here was very enjoyable.
The accommodation was very comfortable and despite being on a working farm was also very quiet. Well equipped kitchen, spacious open plan living area along with decent sized bedrooms. The shower room appeared shoehorned in but in reality was fine. Comfy beds and sofas, and a wood burner available for the cooler evenings. The farm is over 200 metres altitude and great views available across the countryside.
There was much to do in the area, without having to travel miles. Walks, cycling, moorland, coastline, steam trains, fish & chips. Great stuff.
There were no issues while we stayed here, however if there had been I have no doubt the friendly owners would have done their utmost to help. We would book here again and recommend it to others.
Beautiful location and comfortable accommodation
Although the weather wasn't great it didn't stop us enjoying our stay at Greenlands. Ideally located on the moorland for walkers, although quite isolated, it was only a five minute drive to the village and fifteen minutes to Whitby. It was a pleasure to take a drive out to sightsee other beautiful hamlets and villages in the surrounding areas.
Our cottage was pleasingly well equipped, spacious and clean. Modern natural decor complimented the barn conversion with its cosy wood fire.
The open plan, spacious lounge area and well equipped kitchen area was a plus as plenty room for the children to play. The two upstairs bedrooms, one a double and the other a twin room were also spacious with storage etc on the landing area. Shower room although quite compact was adequate and provided ample plush towels, shower gel etc.
To the front of the cottage was a small play area which our two young grandchildren throughly enjoyed.
John and Jackie were very welcoming and on hand, should we have need them. The cottage is a credit to them.
Would not hesitate to recommend and would visit again in future.
Wonderful location and welcoming owners.
We had a long weekend at the cottage which started with a warm welcome from Jackie. Nothing was to much trouble and only a knock at their door or a phonecall away. The cottage was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed a very relaxing few days, especially in front of the log burner. If you're looking for a peaceful break then this could be the place for you. The only thing I would mention is that due to the nature of the building. The roof space, especially in the bathroom is quite low, not a problem for ourselves only been being short but taller guests may struggle. I personally wouldn't let this put you off. Overall I would recommend this cottage. Look forward to going back in the future. One very happy guest.
It was a pleasure to meet you both and your beautiful and friendly grandchildren. You must be so proud of them. Thank you for leaving the cottage clean and tidy it's much appreciated and thank you for your positive feedback.
All the best
The cottage was lovely, with everything you could possibly need. The owners, John and Jackie, were very welcoming and incredibly helpful during our stay. Couldn't recommend a place more.
I'd like to thank you for your kind words also a huge thank you for leaving the cottage Immaculate. it's a big help and much appreciated.
It was a pleasure to meet you both and not forgetting our four legged friends.
Fantastic location, beautiful cottage!
Just returned from a fantastic week in this cottage. Beautiful peaceful location with wonderful wildlife on your doorstep! Our children loved waking up and watching the cows in the field. Ourselves, children and dogs were made very welcome by John and Jackie - perfect hosts! Great central location with Goathland, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay only a short drive away. The cottage itself was spotless when we arrived, it was very well equipped with everything we needed. My daughter loved the toys provided and didn't touch ours! Very comfy beds much appreciated after all the lovely long walks. Dogs loved the under floor heating :) Even a lovely bottle of wine chilling in the fridge on our arrival that was a lovely touch and much appreciated! Could not fault it, hope to return. Lisa and Paul Cambridgeshire.
