“Amazing!!”
Reviewed 5 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Had the most amazing week at st Hilda's cottage! The cottage is lovely, clean, modern and well kept, a proper home from home. Hot tub was fabulous after a long day walking and going to collect fresh eggs each day from the hens on the farm was great! The owner, Dave was brilliant, extremely helpful and so friendly! Sampled the beer from his conservatory and had a look round the themed B&B that they are currently doing, it looks great so far will be amazing once finished. Loved it so much we are already looking at possible dates for our next stay!

“very comfortable cottage in a good location”
Reviewed 31 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Tucked away in the corner of the farmyard, this cottage provides a great base for visits to the North York Moors and Coast. On arrival scented candles had been lit and lamps turned on to make it feel extra welcoming - a lovely touch. The open plan ground floor has a polished wooden floor, with comfy leather sofa and large TV. It opens onto a small decked courtyard with a hot tub, table and chairs. Upstairs the master bedroom has a very comfy king sized bed (plus another TV) and there's a second double bedded room, (no TV although the description says it has one). The friendly owners will show you round the farmyard (don't miss the friendly alpacas, sheep, micro pigs and emus) and we had fresh eggs left on the doorstep each morning. It is a 10 minute walk to the cliff top at Port Mulgrave and the village has 2 pubs, a butchers and a fish and chip shop. Less than a mile away, Staithes has a good sized co-op for essentials.
We took our dog (a large Labrador) with us and he was made welcome in the Badger Hounds (you just eat in the bar, not the dining room).

“The best Christmas we have ever had!!!”
Reviewed 7 March 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed over Christmas week, myself, hubby, a 15 year old and an 11 year old, and Bella our border terrier too! We had the most relaxing week, cottage was superb, hot tub fabulous, myself and the 11 year old would go in before breakfast! The owner David had left us an optic tree in the cottage and a Xmas card, mince pies and a lovely bottle of mulled ginger wine greeted our arrival. The badgers hound pub was fabulous, and we can highly recommend their Sunday lunch! This cottage is indulgent, I think it's more for couples and adults then for families, and will definitely look at returning with friends in the future. Surrounding area is beautiful.

“Perfect holiday retreat”
Reviewed 23 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

St. Hildas Cottage is a fantastic place to be, we went for a week and didn`t want to leave. On arrival the cottage was spotless and smelling gorgeous with scented candles on and a basket of freshly laid eggs on the door step.the rooms are big and very cormfortable, bathroom is huge!!!!! We took our dog, Hamish, and had lovely walks along the coast to the little bays that are dotted around everywhere, the Badgers Arms do amazing food and The Brown Cow were welcoming and very friendly, giving Hamish lots of fuss and biscuits!! Dave the owner of St. Hildas was really nice to us, he showed us round the main house thats been made into a themed guest house and it is AMAZING!!!!! I`d like his wife to come and decorate my house for me!!!! We can`t wait to go back to St. Hildas, we loved it!!!!!

“Highly recommended cottage on a working farm in a lovely village less than a mile from the beach”
Reviewed 17 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Four of us + our dog stayed for a week in Feb. The cottage was very clean on arrival inside and outside and was well equipped, dishwasher and washing machine included. Downstairs is open plan with a large hob in the kitchen and very sociable layout. Upstairs bedrooms are sufficiently spacious and bathroom is large with great shower and bath. Garden is small, but this wasn't and issue for us in winter and the hot tub is large for a cottage of this size, it was also clean
Cottage is on a working farm and children could spend time visiting the animals. There are lodges / caravans available on site too. Owner was very friendly and showed us round the B+B he is building which should be impressive once done.

Nearby facilities were good. A one mile walk to Runswick or Staithes both of which are lovely fishing villages with good beaches. Hinderwell village itself is good with butchers, shop and two pubs, we ate at Badger Hounds for one of the best Sunday Roast ever. Whitby and the Moors are all in easy reach.
We had a great time and would not hesitate in recommending.

“Simply Excellent”
Reviewed 6 February 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We arrived at the cottage not in the best of moods as our exhaust had blown on the way! However once we reached the cottage our moods were quickly changed! The owners showed to the cottage and gave us some info on the village (and local garages) and we were made to feel very welcome. The cottage itself is gorgeous, a luxurious red leather corner sofa dominates the lounge area of the open plan ground floor directly adjacent is the spacious kitchen with led lighting and lots of cupboard space. Double doors (can be reluctant to open in the wet!) lead you into the small garden area where the hot-tub resides - Hot-tub was fantastic and used every night! The spiral staircase takes you up to the 1st floor with two good sized bedrooms which were lovely. Bed was really comfortable! and the bathroom is massive!

The location is lovely, the village itself has two pubs (both do food!) with friendly locals, a fish and chip shop, a great butchers (excellent quality at an unbelievable price!) and a post office all within walking distance. A short walk (5-10 mins) finds you on the cliff top overlooking a beach and on the Cleveland Way trail from which a short walk again will take you either to Staithes or Runswick Bay. Both recommended!

Obviously Whitby is just a short journey away so there are lots of places to visit and eat (and drink) around the location. We came to the cottage for a relaxing week and couldn't have been a better choice!

Yes when we were there - renovation was going on the the large house - we never heard anything or had any issues!, yes there were some leaves on the decking - personally I attributed these to the large tree in the garden in the middle of a farm!! The cottage is extremely clean, functional and luxurious - a perfect retreat and its nice that you can have a stroll down the farm and look at the animals. A special mention about the owners, we (in our relaxed comatosed state) overstayed an extra day, resulting in the owners being put under real pressure to get the cottage ready for the next guests..... this was done with great efficiency and good humor, without a grumble!

“what a let down made to look good”

people found this review helpful

on arrival met the owner on the farm he was to busy to take us to the cottage and just pointed in a general direction, after driving around for several mins he eventualy took us the 10 paces to the cottage. The first thing to come to our attention was the state of the garden , you could hardly see the decking for leaves, which i would have cleaned myself but no brush was available, also there was dog poo on the decking left by previous guests dog.
in the kitchen there were no baking trays to bake, no fishslice to fry, no sharp knives to cut bread or meats or veg and the fryingpan should be thrown away, we bought our own ,
the iron is a death waiting to happen as its wires are bared in several places all of wich ihave pics of.
the cottage was overrun with flies and woodlice even in nov.
oh and they are renovating the house nextdoor.
we were not told how to operate the hot tub or what to do with our rubbish etc etc etc.
and when you tried to contact the owners on the 2 contact numbers these went straight to voicemail and they never replied . alot of this could have been put right if the owners had come to greet us and ask if we had any issues . instead the only other time we spoke was when he came out as we were leaving and it was to late the hol was ruined.
