Superb - lovely 'get away from it all' cosy cottage. Everything you need, supplied with fresh eggs and logs for the fire. Amazing views - loved the chickens, rabbits and horses! Great hospitality from Sarah! Thank you - we hope to return one day!

“Wonderful Moorland Hideaway”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Lovely old stone cottage, updated to make a perfect holiday retreat high in the North York Moors. The cottage is well appointed, clean and comfortable, surrounded by cottage garden planting and with its own secluded garden too. We were made most welcome by the owner and Ted the dog showed our own dog the ropes. The scenery and wildlife are spectacular and there are a couple pubs within walking distance. The bright lights of Whitby are 20 minutes way if you need a kiss-me-quick hat, but there is perfect moorland to walk on all around if you prefer peace and quiet. Simply lovely and we'll be back.

Management Response

We couldn't be happier that you had a lovely holiday at Daffodil Cottage, thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. It sounds like it had it all; character, comfort, outside space and something for all tastes in the surrounds - wonderful! We will be sure to pass your comments along to the owner and hope you return very soon!

Wonderful and relaxing stay. We found the cottage to be very clean, great cooker/oven (must have now been replaced since last reviews). The owner is very firendly and accommodating. Great views all around the valley and excellent pub down the road in Lealholm. Will definitely be staying here again.

“Lovely Location / Very Disappointed re: Uncleanliness Of Kitchen Area / Appliances / Utensils”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

The views from the front and rear of this cottage are superb, the living area is quite small, the bedroom area more spacious. Daffodil Cottage is terraced between the owner`s own home and another holiday cottage Wildflower Cottage (sleeps 6). It is up a very steep hill (could be tricky in icy conditions) and along an unmade track so very quiet and in the yard immediately outside the cottage are the chickens, owner`s horses and a friendly dog. The bedroom area we found to be very comfortable and having lovely views from the sky light windows. We were however extremely disappointed at the general uncleanliness of the kitchen area, the two pans available were extremely old, one damp moulded and so we could not possibly use them, the toaster was really dirty and we could not use that either, the kettle was really dirty and dusty too, we wiped that down and guessed given the water would be boiled we`d be fairly safe to drink it as with the microwave, we gave that a good wipe down before use too. Well, the oven is in need of replacement, it was dirty, my husband wanted to clean it so that we could actually cook the food we had arranged to be delivered just after our arrival (it was a Christmas stay). I did not see why my husband should start cleaning an oven out, instead, we donated the oven food to relatives who lived nearby to use and we went out shopping again for food that we could microwave ! Even if the oven had have been clean it would not have been fit for purpose because the controls are completely faded, it is guess work as to the temperature and the door does not close properly. The toilet we found to be un flushed on arrival which raised doubts as to if the bathroom area had been cleaned at all. Don`t be put off renting this cottage though, if you plan on eating out as it is in a lovely location and the owner is apparently quite friendly by all accounts although we cannot comment on this, as it was over Christmas, short dark cold days and so we did not see each other once initial friendly introductions had been made. It might well be, having raised our concerns with SYKES who welcomed feedback and were going to have a word with the owner, that the cooker, pans and toaster have all been replaced now and will be left clean upon handover. We stay in a SYKES cottages five times a year and this is the first time we have ever rated a review as poorly as this one.

“Cozy cottage, beautiful views”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

OK we should have read the details more carefully so we were surprised that towels wee not included - unusual in this day and age. The oven was a bit of a mystery too as the temperature scales had worn off and the door doesn't close properly which made cooking a little hit and miss. Other than these things the cottage was cozy and the views from outside the door outstanding. The cottage is out of the village and very quiet with some lovely walking straight from the front door.

“Picturesque View and Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were looking for a cottage near River Esk. Over looking the Esk Valley, the location of this cottage is a pleasant surprise. Sarah was very friendly and helpful. My son was very excited to see so many animals. It is an ideal place for hiking, painting and photography. The food in nearby pubs, such as the Board Inn in Lealholm, was excellent. Overall, we enjoyed everyday while staying there.
