“Another great week”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

After having such a lovely stay last year we decided to return to River Cottage again this year. Cottage was still brilliant, no disappointments, everything lovely and clean. Weather not as good this year so weren't able to enjoy sitting out as much, but Barney enjoyed the lovely big garden. With the weather being cooler we had a log fire one night which was lovely. Hoping to return again as the cottage is so handy for lots of places yet far enough out of Scarborough to give you some peace and quiet. This cottage is definitely worth full marks.

“Beautiful riverside location”

Just returned from a fabulous weekend stay at this cosy and well catered cottage. The location is magical being located on the river and yet minutes from great local pubs and restaurants. The cottage has been well thought out, spacious and has everything you need. We were welcomed by the delightful and very friendly owner who had also left a lovely bottle of wine and French bread on our arrival. We loved it so much we didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back again!

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway location, look no further than River Cottage. Perfect place to relax, really enjoyed the BBQ with river views. Very comfortable couldn't ask for more.

“Wonderful, peaceful setting for a beautiful holiday home”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We can't recommend River Cottage highly enough, it was a fantastic place to stay for a long weekend. Our group consisted of 6 adults, one child and two toddlers who all thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful setting, welcoming and well-equipped cottage and beautiful garden.

Andrew and Tracy could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and were happy to cater to all our specific needs. We're looking for excuses to stay there again!

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Rented the cottage for a visit to the area with my wife and extended family. There are 4 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms incl. 1 en-suite. The place is ideal for Scarborough and the surrounding area. It is very comfortable, everything you need for your stay. Nice large garden attached with BBQ and patio area. Even a river running at bottom of garden. Very picturesque. Lots of nice touches like bottle of wine, baguette, fresh butter on arrival. Cotton buds and cotton wool balls in bathrooms.

“Warm, welcoming and peaceful house by the river”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed for one week with German friends and English family. There were 6 adults and 2 small children and there was plenty of room for all of us since there are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The house has a lovely warm and welcoming feel about it and has every facility you could want for a comfortable stay at any time of the year. It was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The garden outside is delightful and runs down to the river and even though it was early spring when we stayed it was perfect for an Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday. In summer it would be great for a BBQ. Our only suggestion (but very minor) would be some sort of gate to the garden so that small children can't access the river. The owners who live next door are very friendly welcoming and helpful when needed but also unobtrusive. As for the location - East Ayton is a lovely village with a handy Spar, petrol station, pub with food, fish and chip shop and fish restaurant. Scarborough is an easy 10 minute drive away, and Whitby and York etc. a bit further but very easy to get to. We had a delightful week and would most definitely return again.
