“Absolutley fabulous!”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This property is kept in excellent condition. The walls are 3 foot thick! and the house is lovely and warm. The welcome was warm & friendly and the "welcome gift" was very well received by all 8 of us. The area is very pretty with walks on your doorstep and a very good bus service just up the road. A lovely restaurant Walkers on the main road can highly recommend it. We came from Grimsby famous for its fish but Walkers were on par with the quality we are used to. You will find everything you need provided for in the cottage from towels to hair dryer pots and pans to loo rolls. We will be back!

“Fantastic cottage”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were so lucky to find this little gem. Host were so friendly and accommodating. the cottage was fantastic, warm, clean and lots of room for 4 adults and 4 children (including 3 teenagers). The grounds and setting are also to die for. We all wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely go back.

This is the second time we have stayed at River Cottage and have been impressed with the quality of the accommadation both times. The kitchen is very well equipted , beds are very comfortable with cotton sheets, plenty of hot water in bathrooms and loads of towels provided.
It was safe for our toddler with baby gates up and downstairs. Downstairs bedroom was used by Grandparnents who found it very comfortable. Garden and river are very peaceful and pretty. The village has a good fish restuarant and 2 pubs 5 mins walk. Good shop 5 mins walk. Very close to coast.

This house is truly gorgeous. We have 3 teenagers and the house had enough room for us to spend time together but also allowed distance when needed. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with anything you may need. It is also very well maintained and very, very clean. The kids had a great time playing badminton on the back lawn. It is an excellent place to use as a base to explore Scarborough, Filey, Flamborough and York (about 50 minute drive). Andrew and Tracey were very welcoming and available if you need any assistance. Our family enjoyed our stay at the River Cottage and highly recommend it.

“Wonderful cottage in lovely location”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have had a lovely stay at River Cottage, the accommodation is well maintained and very clean.. The location of River cottage is lovely, not too far from Scarborough, Filey etc but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. The garden was lovely for Barney our dog to lie in and run about. We had glorious weather so were able to make use of sitting out and admiring the well kept garden, there is a larger barbecue although we did not use it during our stay. We would fully recommend River Cottage for all ages, my mum who is 85 loved it and it was the first time she really didn't want to leave as she had enjoyed it so much

“Quiet, peaceful and wonderful setting”
Reviewed 30 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely welcome from owners and beautiful setting for a relaxing holiday. Spacious and comfortable with cosy log burner in lounge.
Easy to get around visiting the area, with public transport links within walking distance.

Park and ride in York, Whitby and Scarborough all making visiting those places easier.

Plenty of room for all 5 of us and fab garden for our terrier to explore safely.
