Super lokalizacja, w okolicy s? lamy, co jest plusem. Dom bardzo ?adny, czysty. Byli?my zadowoleni.<br/><br/>Musia?am dop?aci? dodatkowo przed przyjazdem za ubezpieczenie. To dodatkowa op?ata o której nie znalaz?am informacji… Otrzyma?am link do strony i polecenie zap?aty. Nie podoba?o mi si? to, bo zwykle nie klikam w linki od nieznajomych. Obs?uga jednak mnie poinformowa?a, ?e inaczej nie otrzymam kodu do domu. Wi?c zap?aci?am. Po zap?acie okaza?o si?, ?e p?atno?? za dom nie przesz?a i powinnam zap?aci? tak?e przez inny formularz.

We had a lovely stay and enjoyed lots of local walks. Our daughters loved saying hello each morning to the alpaca’s. Hope to visit again to explore more of the area as it’s a great location.



Photographs are a true representation. I guess staying directly next to the owners place is unusual, especially when he stared up his Lamborghini outside the bedroom window :O). The rear garden was spectacular and there was a small gate off the terrace to access this . However it was the owners garden.<br/>Parking was easy, huge space directly outside the cottage, well away from any road, a great feature and peace of mind regarding security.<br/>The kitchen was great, overcomplicated oven that you really need a PHD to understand :O). There was a dishwasher with a two tablets to use, but no washing powder with the washer, seemed strange. Host&Stay said they didn’t provide this :O(. Regarding other items in the kitchen they were minimal & basic, I can only just by my previous experience with an AirB&B.<br/>Lounge had a log burner but there was an extra £10 charge for logs.<br/>Overall great cottage spacious and clean.



Lovely stay and would go again.



Fantastic little cottage used on a buisness trip - would stay again



• Beautiful location, surrounded by fields (and alpacas!) <br/>• Modern and clean interior <br/>• Ideal for families, plenty of space and amenities <br/>• Hosts were very welcoming and helpful <br/>• Underfloor heating throughout with individual thermostats <br/>• Great instructions on how to find, and easy to get to



Lovely place. Stayed here previously and will stay again



Accommodation was well located, close to walks and cycle tracks. Peaceful setting. 15 minutes from the coast. High end specs to the interior furnishings and fittings. Decent <br/>space for 4 people. Highly recommend.



Great place, spacious and very quiet but really well located.



Very clean and comfortable, beautiful property.



Overall the cottage was lovely and very clean . It did state there would be logs for the log burner , that was not the case ! Kitchen had no instructions for the oven or microwave. Also it does not mention that the owners house is attached and it feels a little overlooked . It would not stop us coming back though as it is a lovely cottage .



cottage is beautiful !! it is very clean, spacious and modern. Private, convenient parking right outside the cottage. Beautiful views of the countryside but only 6 min from the town.<br/><br/>We loved everything. Only thing we could suggest is a few more utensils for the kitchen and some instructions on how to work the digital stove and microwave.



Gorgeous house, beautiful surroundings



Great place, spacious and private and very quiet. Great for families. Nice facilities with a good sized kitchen and garden area.



Perfect cottage on owners land adjoining but quite separate.<br/>Very kind and helpful owners<br/>Everything was perfect <br/>The house is exactly as described <br/>Love the key safe for ease of access.<br/>We would love to stay again if we come to the Yorkshire moors again <br/>Thank you



Absolutely fantastice place to stay, lovely accomodation in a very nice area. Stayed for work but would definitely book again. <br/>Stay itself was perfect.



Very comfortable beds <br/>Great location very close to Guisborough <br/>Very quiet <br/>Parking very good<br/><br/>Could do with a better selection of Kitchen pots and pans <br/>The extractor fan in the bath room was very noisy



Great location. Easily accessible.<br/><br/>Microwave did not work. Some instructions for the oven and stove top would be helpful.



beautiful comfortable cottage. clean and <br/> homely feeling<br/><br/>difficult to find as a gate was closed over at the start of the road the property was on and there was no sign. <br/>microwave didn’t work. I called the phone number and was asked to check if it was plugged in. I emailed pictures as requested but never got any further response. <br/>The bathroom needs hooks to hang a towel or clothes on. <br/>Bin in the main bedroom would be good. <br/>There was also construction going on at the property which we would’ve preferred to have know about.



clean, well maintained, pleasant



Beautiful accommodation, very clean.<br/>Stunning views from premises.<br/>The email stated there would be logs at the house however there weren’t any.



Everything about the property was amazing. It felt like home from home, it was clean beyond belief, the fixtures and fittings were top end. The privacy aspect was very good, loved the idea of the key safe when checking in and out.<br/><br/>I thought the check in time of 16.00 and the check out time of 10.00 was unfair. I felt the typical times of 15.00 check in and 11.00 check out would have felt better value for money and the extra hours would have been more beneficial to the weekend. Also, I agree with the refundable deposit, but didn't like the fact we were charged a £10.00 admin fee. I thought it would have been a good idea to provide logs for the burner as an additional option which would have saved having to bring them with us. We ended up at Low Farm by mistake, as the post code was ambiguous, I think if the cottage <br/> was registered on what3words, and/or a easy to see sign post at the top of the access would be beneficial.





We all said WOW when we arrived . The location was just lovely with Alpacas to feed on the door step. The interior was just beautiful ,clean modern but cosy at the same time. Beds were very comfy, enhanced with stylish furnishings it really was a fabulous stay. We would definitely stay here again. <br/>Big thank you to the owners who were very friendly and helpful during our stay. It’s a 10/10 from us.???



The location was perfect, very clean and spacious. The property was right next to the woods and a few mins drive into Guisborough High Street. The alpacas at the property made it a special stay for my child.<br/><br/>NA



Great place for a few days away. All the facilities you could want, even Alpacas! Lovely place.



Host and Stay are the worst booking agent I have ever come across, to the extent that I wouldn't book any property through them again. Total chaos, deluged with emails and even a threat to cancel the booking - the verification process they require doesn't work and I was bombarded with emails. Two phone calls both promised the situation was sorted but the emails continued.



Good location. very spacious and modern. Comfortable, warm and welcoming.<br/><br/>No major issues. But no firelighters or matches to use the log burner. No instructions on how to use the microwave and oven. Only a basic level of crockery. Knives not sharp. would have been difficult if we had wanted to be fully self catering.







Absolutely stunning home, decor and detail to the highest standard and also i have never stayed anywhere so clean. Owners very friendly on hand for anything and offered own kitchen to use as we thought gas had gone off. Alpacas were amazing to wake up to. All round perfect little stay.



lovely property, finished to a high spec<br/><br/>beds were hard and we struggled sleeping because of this, tvs could do with an update one in bedroom struggled to see and one in living room nothing would load up and no sky



Beautiful cottage, great location and very comfortable.



Good, clean, well presented property with modern kitchen and all required facilities in a great location for us (really close to the locally famous Roseberry Topping). Lovelly seeing a field of Alpacas from the kitchen window. The underfloor heating was zoned per room and worked well (when it was on). Overall the cottage suited us very well for our short stay.<br/><br/>The bathroom extractor fan was crazy noisy, like a high-pitched drill or power tool. We could hear it throughout the cottage.<br/><br/>The underfloor heating worked well when it was running but it was clearly on a timer and turned off fairly early at night so the cottage got rather chilly. The information folder supplied gave basic instructions about the heating and stated that there were more details, including how to to change the schedule, further on in the folder, but there weren't.<br/><br/>The shower worked well and the water, being "on demand" was always hot. However, the shower tray didn't slope towards the drain in one area, meaning that the soapy water just stayed in that place instead of draining away.<br/><br/>Although Netflix worked fine on the bedroom TV it struggled to load programs on the main living room TV.



The owners were really friendly and helpful. The agents, Host and Stay not so much. In my few dealings with them they seemed fairly uninterested in being helpful. The cottage itself is really modern, bright and cosy. It was quiet and comfortable and I would definitely stay again.



great stay, lovely little place and very cosy and clean!



Lovely cottage, very clean<br/><br/>Link for the directions from booking.com went to the wrong location.



Excellent accommodation, sparkling clean throughout and plenty of space. Really appreciated!



Lovely cottage in a great location. The cottage was well equipped and spotlessly clean,would definitely return.



Lovely location near woodland trails just next door



We had a lovely stay, great location!<br/><br/>The owners were very approachable and kind.



Peaceful location with beautiful animals to help relax.<br/><br/>Everything was good!



Amazing location, beautiful property and clean modern decor made our stay very comfortable. Had everything we needed along with great views. The alpacas and rabbits were a friendly site to see every morning. Highly recommended :)



Lovely cottage which was spotlessly clean. Little extras like teabags (which I had forgotten!), milk and other condiments. Good location for Staithes and Saltburn on Sea.



Clean, comfortable, well equipped. Beautiful views, great location.



What a wonderful find, beautiful location and very nicely furnished with top of the range white goods.



Very impressed with the property - beautifully decorated in a great location! Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Easy parking provided outside the cottage.



Très joliment décoré, très confortable, très propre, très calme.<br/>Contact sans problème avec l'agence de location.<br/><br/>Un peu plus d'ustensiles de cuisine serait appréciable.



Lovely place, comfortable beds and immaculate place. Very convenient with nearby cafe and access to trails of guisborough woods. Owners very friendly and helpful.<br/>Would stay again.<br/><br/>Thank you









Lovely little cottage in fantastic surroundings. Well equipped with everything you’ll need, check in was easy and the host was quick to answer any questions. Highly recommend



Lovely new build cottage with all modern fittings. Very comfortable with country walks from your door step.



Great location, excellent property.





Simply, everything. The cottage is lovely and is located in the most beautiful area. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly.<br/><br/>Everything was perfect. More cookware would be preferred but that's all.



My best friends and I stayed for 2 nights for a girly weekend, we enjoyed our stay, only things we would change was, the dishwasher was full on arrival, the bar stools we very wobbly and unsafe. The front door was quite hard to lock and unlock and the floor was very slippy when we got there. But apart from that we had a lovely stay, lovely scenery and town centre 2 miles away. Would definitely recommend going to Cookfellas wine bar and eatery too



Clean and well maintained, with excellent facilities<br/><br/>Nothing



On arrival I was very disappointed with the state of the house. When we turned up it was not clean the dishwasher was full of dirty cutlery and there was a list of what should have been left in the property but half was missing including dishwasher tablets so before I could even have a drink after a 4 hour drive i had to go shopping to get dishwasher tablets. The outside of the property just outside the front door where the Alpacas were had a lot of building materials and machinery and this was a shame as I was unable to let my 1 and a half year old to run out there to see the animals. Apart from that my stay was nice the surroundings were beautiful and the local towns were lovely there was a lot to go and see and we enjoyed our time. It was a shame about what we found on arrival.



A lovely cosy little cottage (the photos make it look a lot bigger). Very nice and clean and good comms with the stay team. It rained a lot on our trip and trip and there isn’t really anywhere to hang up coats/put wet wellies



Lovely home



The accommodation was clean, spacious, modern, private and in a good location for the walks we wanted to do and getting out to the North York Moors. There was also a nice outdoor seating area and we loved seeing the lamas everyday. We wouldn’t hesitate to book again as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.<br/><br/>Only a few pointers really: There could have been a little more crockery such as a complete set of 8, which would have allowed us to use the dishwasher. Written instructions for the oven combined with microwave would be good and also a washing up bowl in the large sink so that washing up water could be kept separate when needing to drain pans or tip away the dregs. A small serrated knife would also be helpful. However, these are all very small things and not a complaint - just might be useful to know so they can be added to help future visitors. When we requested a bottle opener it was brought in 5 minutes and the owner also popped round and helpfully explained the workings of the oven.

We really enjoyed our week in the bungalow, thank you. All mod cons and a great shower. Clean rooms and comfy beds. We loved the alpacas :)<br><br>Only improvements for us would have been a few more kitchen utensils/crockery (sieve, corkscrew etc) and the ability to turn the background bathroom fan off at night. But over all a lovely stay in this beautiful part of the world.



The cottage is a great size for a small family and is located on a farm with a lovely alpaca field adjacent to the cottage. However, I was very disappointed with the cleanliness of the cottage. The floor hadn’t been mopped as there were spillage stains all over it and although it smelt lovely (due to the various air fresheners around) the place did not feel clean. There were marks all over the appliances and the towels and bedding had no scent to them so I’m not sure if these were actually clean. Although a lovely cottage in a great location something does need to be done about the cleanliness.



Lovely place.



What a lovely little cottage it was! Would 100% stop again! So peaceful! All the facilities you needed and shops just a short drive away! Lovely breakfast at the cabin which was a short 2 minute walk away! Honestly loved it!! The owner was lovely and just let us do our own thing! Very very peaceful and lovely place to stop would stop again and recommend to family and friends for sure!!



Most enjoyable weekend in beautiful surroundings with many walks on the doorstep.



Great location, beautiful home, high spec, very nice kitchen and bathroom, comfortable place and thankfully really clean. Smelled very pleasant too . <br/>Next-door garden was lovely to look at, as were the alpacas at close quarters. Sheltered outdoor space for sitting or eating outdoors. Easy parking. Very impressed with this lovely property.<br/><br/>Possibly microwave would be handy although we ourselves did not need it during our stay. Slight lack of privacy for dressing etc if you forgot to close the blinds. Nothing really to dislike!



Really lovely place, clean and plenty of room for our 1 year old to run around. Our daughter loved seeing the llamas and horses in the fields nearby. Perfect location for the nearby walkway and playground is great for family’s. Very impressed with Stay, check in/out hassle free we would recommend to friends and family.



Great location, lovely property and good value for money, will be returning soon.



Comfort, excellent location.<br/><br/>The accommodation was excellent, just a point, it could have done with an ensuite to the double bedroom. One toilet/shower not adequate for 4 person occupancy.



Stunning cottage in a fantastic location! We’ll definitely be back.



Great overall place, lovely location and really clean and modern facilities



The property was spotless, modern with extra touches like a coffee machine, milk in the fridge. It was beautiful inside and very peaceful. Outdoor space, plenty of parking and next to a field with Alpaccas . The owners helped us with a small problem on arrival and we all enjoyed our stay.

Check-in was simple.<br>Property was very clean and absolutely gorgeous.<br>Situated next to beautiful woodland which was great for walking our dogs.<br>Would recommend the Kings Head Inn for really good pub grub, great atmosphere and dog friendly.<br>Overall a really enjoyable stay in a beautiful home!<br>Thank you!



Really clean, good location and definitely recommend



Perfect accommodation that makes you feel like your right at home. If you don’t leave here wishing you could stop then I’d be extremely surprised. Fantastic location, especially as it’s right next to a fabulous forest walk and is also not too far from the sea of you don’t mind a short drive.



Lovely cottage just a minute away for some stunning walks and countryside. What a find, we will definitely be returning



Absolutely beautiful cottage, laid out well and well equipped with washer, drier, dishwasher etc. Living room very cosy and comfortable. Main bedroom bed is rather uncomfortable and for sure too small for the room as mentioned in other reviews. But overall no complaints about the cottage itself, it was very modern and yet cosy. Very dog friendly, all on one level and hard floors throughout. Little yard out the back you can wash the dogs off in, but remember to bring your own bucket/watering can as there is no outside tap. The location is great for walking in Guisborough Forest and the outlook is beautiful. You aren’t really close enough to any pubs to walk to quickly but 4 mins down the road in a car is a lovely pub at Roseberry Topping, really dog friendly and good food and drink there. Great Ayton well worth a visit as well. The only downside to this property for us was the early morning noise and the fact the outside was basically a building site. We spend our working weeks getting up before 5am so when we go away we want to be able to relax and sleep-in in the mornings. Unfortunately this yard was up and working and making quite a bit of noise by 6:15am every day. Not sure if this is just because they were doing landscaping work to their garden or not. However it did ruin our lazy morning feel and not really what we expected for the price we paid for the cottage. They have some lovely alpacas and a couple of donkeys (one of which does love to call out at 5am as well! However once settled in probably won’t be an issue). That being said, hopefully the work will be over soon and whoever else gets to stay here will have a more peaceful stay!



Excellent appliances and well lauded out , situated in a working farmyard



This property is in an amazing location, very close to woodland walks.



Super pristine cottage in a great location.
