We spent our Christmas holidays at Thresher Cottage with our kids and my parents. We needed somewhere near Middlesbrough to visit family there, a good bit of space for our large group, and really wanted beautiful countryside views. Thresher Cottage fit the bill perfectly. The underfloor heating kept us cozy and comfy. Our hosts decorated the cottage for the holidays, and very kindly let our local family members in early to bring groceries and other items for us. We had plenty of space for our group and never felt crowded. The views are spectacular and it was wonderfully quiet. The wifi was great, the kitchen fully appointed with everything we needed, we always had hot water, and there was even a dishwasher and a clothes washing machine. The villages of Danby and Lealholm are about a five minute drive away. We really loved the Board Inn in Lealholm - really nice place with great food and lovely people. Groceries are a bit further afield, but we never felt isolated or lacking. We had rented two large SUVs for the trip, and I'm glad we did. There was plenty of space for both vehicles at the cottage, and we never had to make any consideration for road conditions. Though we did a lot of driving, it was worth it to see those beautiful hills every morning. My only regret is that I didn't bring my hiking boots - I would have loved to do the local walks. Thanks to our lovely hosts - we look forward to coming back in the future!

We have stayed twice at Thresher Cottage in the summer holidays and had a lovely time. The cottage is well equipped, everything we needed in the kitchen, lovely to have milk and cake on arrival. Comfy beds, big bathrooms, lovely little, walled garden. Towels, bedding. Friendly owners. The location is remote, but stunning - one of the most beautiful valleys in North Yorkshire. Close to Whitby, Lealholm and Danby. It is quite hard to find - follow the owners directions not your sat nav! Wi-fi is poor and intermittent (a plus and a minus, depending on your perspective!). Expect sounds and smells of the countryside (!!). On our second visit we could see signs of wear and tear and hope that the owners will spruce up the cottage and keep it in a good condition as it really is very nice spot. We will definitely come back.

Clean, comfy B&B with friendly and helpful hosts. Good breakfast, lovely peaceful location and not too far from several local pubs/eating places. Nearest shop/petrol station and pub is in Lealholm, a five minute drive from the B&B.

Such a lovely warm welcome from the hosts at the B&B. I stayed here for 2 nights with my parents who were doing the coast to coast walk. It wasn't far from the route and a welcome rest stop. The beds were very comfy with a lovely bath or shower en suite in the second room. The breakfast was delicious with a choice of what we wanted the night before and freshly cooked. Will definitely stay here again if we're back in the area. Thanks.

The cottage is well-equipped and comfortable and meets most needs .WiFi is not consistently available. For those with mobility problems there is a ground floor double bedroom. The cottage has underfloor heating – a big plus when the weather is cool. There is a small south-facing garden. There are good views to the north and south of the cottage. Hosts, Pete and Jane, are friendly and helpful and gave tips on places of interest and places to dine out. We dined well at the Fox and Hounds at Ainthorpe (near Danby) and the Board Inn at Lealholm, both a short drive away. The cottage is well located for the Esk Valley Walk, local walks and visits to Whitby, Staithes, Grosmont and Goathland. We would have given a 9 out of 10 rating, had this been possible. We would return to Thresher Cottage and recommend to friends.
