Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Perfect retreat
We stayed here during the school Easter holidays and had a fantastic time. The cottage is well furnished and very comfortable. It was equipped with everything we could need. The location too is perfect. Set in a beautiful, quiet village but within easy reach of York, the North Yorkshire Moors national park and the coastal resorts of Whitby, Scarborough and Filey. We also enjoyed days out at Eden Camp and Flamingo Land. The owners could not have been more helpful. They left wine, flowers and Easter eggs for us which was a lovely touch. The guest book shows that there are many return visitors and I can see why.

Fantastic cottage
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this warm, extremely comfortable, quiet and beautifully decorated cottage. The red wine was excellent (Australian!), fuel for the fire was abundant and the owners were very welcoming and friendly. This was a wonderful place to stay.

Beautiful countryside retreat
We thoroughly recommend this beautiful cottage for any visits to North Yorkshire, a very good location and very quiet. Extremely tastefully decorated, attention to detail and very clean. The hosts Sandra and Nick provided us with a welcoming bottle of wine on arrival and plenty of fuel for our open fire, which was appreciated. We would definitely love to return and stay again for our school rugby tour if our son is selected. Thank you, a real gem.

Best place ever.
Having stayed at many self catering premises over the years, we can honestly say this one is the best. From the warm welcome on arrival to the flowers and wine left for us, everything was perfect. The Old Post Office was spotlessly clean with everything provided, right down to tea towels, oven gloves and dishwasher tablets. We loved it so much we booked to return in April before we left.
