We have just returned from a very relaxing 3-night stay at 'The Granary' cottage situated right at the entrance to the Dalby Forest.
Peaceful location, spotlessly clean, cosy and very comfortable for a couple or family. The kids appreciated the TV/DVD players which are installed in both bedrooms and allowed for a couple of lazy-lie-ins. Plenty of hot water for bathing/showering and a long-length bath, perfect to stretch out in. My son fell in love with the calves and both children enjoyed visiting the sheep and newborn lambs on the farm.
Spent more time in the cottage than planned as I arrived unwell and it couldn't have been a more comfortable place to potter.
In the forest, 'Go Ape Junior' was a great hit with my 7-year old daughter and my son would have spent all day playing in the play area. If you can walk or cycle the mile or so into the Forest from the cottage, you save paying the £7 parking fee. Easy access by car to the North Yorkshire Moors, Whitby, nearby Thornton Le Dale and Pickering.
Highly recommended accommodation based on our experience.
