Just spent a week in Acorn Cottage at Newbiggin Hall. As all the other reviews say, the accomodation was fantastic and the cottage was very well equiped, especially in the kitchen. On the couple of nights that we stayed in and cooked, everything we needed was there, even down to pototo masher, pots, pans, cooking dishes etc. I can not fault the place.
It was spotlessly clean and the scenery from out of both the front and back windows was stunning.
I booked the cottage for a week and for the first 3 days, I was there with two friends and our horses. The paddocks were right outside our front door and we had the option of stabling as well. There was ample parking for our horse box and trailer. It is a brilliant set up and base for riding holiday. As soon as we got there, the horses were so chilled. The riding was fantstic. It was all on bridleways or very quiet country lanes. You can turn east or west out of the complex, straight onto bridleways. One day we rode to Sandsend, along the beach to Whitby and then back to the cottage at Aislaby.
Tina and Robin, the owners were lovely, very accomodating and with Tina having horses herself, they were very helpful and knowledgable.
I would recommend Newbiggin Hall to anybody, be them equestrrian or not.
