The large window hatch looks through into the kitchen allowing you to cook, dine and socialise in one space.

The fully equipped kitchen has everything you could need for a short break or longer getaway. The kitchen is fitted with high spec appliances, handmade shelving units and large square, natural stone coloured floor tile. With slate grey units, a marble style worktop and high shine ripple textured wall tile, this space has a modern and stylish feel.

The family bathroom sits alongside the three bedrooms on the first floor. The bathroom features a large freestanding bath, a walk in shower, WC and large basin. The rich dark walls and white wood panelling wouldn’t be far from an Elle Décor magazine.

Lovely house, everything you need and great pub right opposite! perfect for our weekend trip for a wedding, and a full house didn't feel full, lots of space in the living room to all group together and the dining room/kitchen. Many of our group commented on how great the shower was! Thanks for a great stay



Good location<br/><br/>Filthy, broken garden furniture. Dangerous cast iron drainpipe about to fall. Oven so dirty it set the smoke alarm off. Not newly renovated in any way so false advertising. Would never use this company again



It was a nice place for stay & had an amazing bar just opposite to the house. The instructions were straightforward for check-in & the house was tidy & clean with all the listed amenities available.<br/>It's a nice house for hosting atleast 6 people with kids. I would recommend this place who like peace & green surroundings.



Lovely house in an idyllic location. Very well equipped with everything we needed. The bathrooms and bedrooms were pristine and beds very comfortable. Log fire was lovely and made the house very cosy. There are two great pubs directly opposite which is a bonus. We couldn't get the heating to work the first night but this was rectified the second day after contacting the host. We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely house and would definitely return.





This cottage is in Egton. Very pretty. Close to great hikes. Close to Whitby. Very spacious and warm and stylish, just like the pictures.



Spacious, retention of original features. Very central to the village, moorlands and coast within east reach. Bus service ran through. Quality eateries within walking distance.<br/><br/>It would be improved with a log fire. Bedrooms could have done with bedside tables and storage for clothing. Front door quite stiff

First impressions great, then after a while you start to notice. Cleaning is not the best, access to the loft bedroom and en-suit is difficult (very narrow stairs, awkward size doors, low roof and roof vent). One bed had a ridiculous wooden surround that you keep on hitting your shin and a noisy wooden headboard that creaked also the mattress had seen better days and sank in the middle. The settee was very low you sort of roll off and get up. A printed book on how things work would be great (microwave and TV), a bit of painting here and there, curtains on the landing and bathroom (you are not overlooked but some sort of covering had been there in the past ). As I said it was OK but not great. Would I go back? No, there are better places to stay for the money.



Die Lage, die liebevoll gestalteten und renovierten Räume, die Bäder, der Garten und das Fernsehzimmer unter dem Dach.<br/><br/>Es war nicht besonders sauber, der Fernseher im Wohnzimmer ließ sich nicht nutzen, es gab weder genug Gartenmöbel noch Besteck oder Tassen für 8 Personen, so dass wir selbst noch Besteck kaufen mussten. Zwei Heizkörper ließen sich gar nicht ausschalten, obwohl wir im August dort waren. Die Vermieter haben zwar immer sehr schnell automatisch per EMail geantwortet, aber in der ganzen Zeit des Aufenthalts leider nicht reagiert. Das war schade, weil das Haus an sich sehr schön ist.





Beautiful house and garden, loads of space and everything we needed, lovely quiet village with great pubs, just didn’t seem like it had been cleaned very well.



bins unemptied. bags of rubbish left on worktops. duat and cobwebs everywhere. other peoples clothing tags left under bed so clearly not cleaned. i sent a message reagrding rubbish and it was never dealt with.



Location, facilities size<br/><br/>There was a pool of something outside the front door and the cleaning cupboard could have been cleaner



Lovely location and house had more than enough room for a family.



Big roomy house with comfortable furniture. Easily catered for 5 adults and 2 children. Children loved the loft tv room<br/><br/>A BBQ out in the garden would have been great



Egton is a beautiful village with the amazing pub just opposite the cottage it was handy for Egton Manor, Whitby and Runswick . Beautiful countryside.



modern spacious and well equipped. Great location.<br/><br/>Low door frames if you have anyone over six foot in your party. I objected to having to pay for accidental damage which was compulsory.



Beautiful location and well proportioned house. I’d say 8 adults would feel crowded but we were a party of 5 adults and it was roomy enough for us.



Really enjoyed the stay here. It was a super location for getting out and about over a BH weekend. The house is in a very quiet location, with two superb pubs bang opposite and very convenient! The house was very homely and had everything on tap. We had a problem with the boiler on arrival, but the host was extremely responsive and sent somebody in to fix. He too was extremely friendly and sorted the problem promptly. Would recommend and book again, thanks for a great stay!



Location was very good with easy access to Whitby which was about 7 miles. It was about a 30 minute drive to Pickering where we got the steam train on the North Yorkshire Raliway.<br/><br/>Nothing



Lots of space



Overall a really disappointing experience from the company and holiday home itself. <br/>I would advise anyone thinking of booking this property to hold out until it has received a thorough clean and maintenance work carried out on the issues highlighted to Host & Stay. <br/>The property had either not been cleaned or had been to a very poor standard. <br/>The white sofa as shown in the picture is absolutely filthy, with multiple stains and marks. The carpet is also due for replacement. <br/>The boiler requires immediate maintenance as we discovered when we entered a freezing cold house, not ideal with below 0 temperatures outdoors. <br/>Multiple pictures have been sent with various other issues and an investigation is being carried by the company. <br/>Difficult to communicate with staff members out of office hours as you are diverted to a work force abroad. <br/>A reasonable compensation has been offered however I am extremely disappointed to have not been contacted by a member of management.



We had a lovely weekend here. The location is great and just a short drive to Whitby. The house itself was really nice and clean and has everything that you need. Beds are really comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. would highly recommend.



Great stay.



Host and Stay have read the Ryan Air book of getting more money. We paid our fees then were given A HARD SELL OF INSURANCE. If we didn't take their extra insurance then we could be liable to cancellation We have rented lots of accommodation but never had this avericious method of squeezing extra money from people. It's a shame as the house and location is great. However hope H and S get the customers they deserve!<br/> BTW we left the place clean and tidy but I can see other people getting their £500 of insurance value out of the place due to this unwelcome extra charge.<br/>Pps. The bed in the lower bedroom has a protruding 8 inch shelf on which my husband gashed his shin on. Perhaps you should consider removing this shelf as it is very hazardous.



Great place to explore the moors and the Wheatshaft (opposite) food is excellent!



Lovely house and location, the house was lovely and warm. We found the kitchen was well stocked and managed to cook a full roast dinner!<br/>15 minute drive to Whitby and two nice pubs over the road.



Lovely stay with 7 friends! We had plenty of space in the house with a very large sofa and a well equipped dining room + kitchen. The bedrooms were large with comfortable beds and enough storage space in wardrobes. 2 bathrooms and all decorated nicely.<br/>Cozy small pub just opposite the house, 20mins walk to train st and 15mins drive to Whitby.<br/>We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a weekend away in a beautiful location perfect for hiking and sightseeing.



Fantastic family-friendly property! We will be back. Two brilliant pubs across the road and so much to explore close by. We could not recommended this highly enough.



Great location and excellent cottage. Clean with all facilities expected. Great views and easy access to most things to do in the area - be it the NYMR or the coast. Two pubs in the village too. would definitely recommend.



Gorgeous old building with nice bathrooms, comfy beds and good size kitchen/diner - in a cracking location. Unfortunately that’s where the good news ends! The property is not in as good a state as the pictures would have you believe. The entire house is in need of a good clean and decoration. Stairs, kitchens and bathrooms all marked with stains (don’t think the colour helps). The living room has a light cream sofa, which is marked and stained. Whether the sofa is clean or not is sort of irrelevant, because it doesn’t feel it. The living room carpet is also filthy - I spilled some water and soaked it up with paper towels, and the paper was almost black. <br/><br/>In addition, we could not get the heating on whatsoever. We spoke to Host and Stay who simply directed us to the property handbook - and helpfully reminded me that I needed to turn the thermostat anti-clockwise to increase the temperature…. Host and Stay spoke with the owners, but no real instructions were forthcoming to enable us to sort it out, despite having turned the thermostat. There is underfloor heating in the kitchen, but it isn't that noticeable. We had to rely on electric fires and the wood fire for the living room (wood not included).<br/><br/>If you are planning on staying here in a big group, I suggest you should all be familiar enough to take a bath together, because there wasn't enough water for our group of 4 (it sleeps 8!) to have a shower / bath on an evening before heading to the pub. <br/><br/>All this could be forgiven - noting that dogs are allowed to stay here - if the property was good value. But at £300 per night, it really isn't.



Excellent location and on the hole very clean and well equipped house.<br/><br/>The bed in the attic was very uncomfortable and creaked every slight movement. Also needs blinds on ghe attic windows as sunloght comes straight in. No facilities for recycling which thus dsy and age us needed



We had a wonderful stay in this very comfy and spacious house (4 adults, 1 three year old, 2 dogs). Egton is peaceful and a perfect location for quiet unspoilt dog-friendly beaches within 15/20 minutes. We had one dinner at The Wheatsheaf opposite which serves excellent fresh food and they were kind enough to let us bring our final dinner back to the house to save one of us babysitting! <br/>The house was full of character and relaxing to be in and has superb views across the moors from the bedroom windows. I expect we will be back!



A lovely, spacious property in a perfect location to explore Whitby and the moors. An unexpectedly large and beautiful garden too!



What a lovely cottage in a perfect location! Both the local pubs across the road where lovely too. The house is beautifully decorated, however we didn’t use the front room as much as the white sofa is abit risky with red wine ?….<br/><br/>Everything was so clean & comfortable, all the family loved it, we will be recommending & hopefully be back ourselves. <br/><br/>10/10



Lovely cottage ideally situated outside of Whitby but only a short drive away. Super food served at the pub right opposite and delightful take away cake in the other pub down the road



Lovely cottage, had a great time. Den for the kids was great as well, they loved it in there. Really nice large garden too.



Great location close to Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors. The town has some lovely pubs and eateries across the road and the house was lovely for a family get together. The large garden was a lovely surprise and the children loved running around it.



Lovely property. with lovely garden and great pub opposite. Centrally placed for the places we wanted to visit. Very comfortable and everything we needed.<br/><br/>More shelves available in larder



Perfect in every way



Lovely comfortable property and in a great little village. Just a shame the heating wasn’t working in February. <br/><br/>Underfloor heating and open fires saved the days. <br/><br/>Its finished really nicely so just requires some attention to detail on the upkeep I.e. ensure light bulbs/lamps are all working and it would be a nice touch to have tv’s to the bedrooms.



a perfect retreat, the house is beautiful and clean. we had 4 adults and 3 children. the kids loved the little snug and spent hours in there. the bunk beds are perfect for the little ones. the house was loverly and warm to. I would highly recommend it to anyone



Fantastic stay. Amazing quality house, better than we would have expected. Would definitely recommend to all friends and family for a break away.



Really lovely place to stay. We all loved the accommodation, very clean, lovely bedrooms and bathroom. Everything you would ever need in a kitchen and close to Whitby.



Amazing house with everything we could need for a short and longer stay.<br/><br/>Comfortable beds lots of fresh towels and the heating and hot water were excellent especially needed in crisp cold January! <br/><br/>We went across the road for evening meal at the pub which was lovely. <br/><br/>Close to some wonderful beaches and seaside towns such as Runswick and Whitby.



lovely location, nice and warm.<br/><br/>could do with a mirror in the top bedroom and more coat pegs and shoe storage downstairs.







Lovely house, tastefully furnished in great location.



Suited our needs. Clean and warm. Good location.



Comfortable beds, plenty of space. High spec. Lovely garden and views<br/><br/>Rubbish collection



The big beds, the lounge, the kitchen and the fire at night and not forgetting the views.<br/><br/>Very little to moan about. Could do with some blinds for the bedroom in the loft, had to improvise but that is really it.



We booked the house for the family celebration of our 50th/Golden Wedding. The accommodation was perfect in every way, lovely bedrooms, large lounge and dining room ideal for a family meal. The courtyard/patio was wonderful to sit in for early evening drinks in the sun and the large garden was a lovely surprise with views to the moors. On the Saturday, we ate dinner across the road at The Wheatsheaf - super food, drink and very friendly staff - vital to book a table at the weekend.



The quality fixtures & fittings, very comfortable beds and great location.<br/><br/>Toilet seat was not attached to the toilet, used tissues in bedroom vase, cobwebs hanging from ceiling in the kitchen, bin bags were overflowing in garden bins, needs a little attention to detail



Lovely house, fantastic loft conversation, great sized rooms and really nice garden. Great location in the village next to 2 pubs and easy reach of the main road to Whitby etc<br/><br/>Not very clean. Lots of dust on hard floor in bathroom, carpets hadn’t been hoovered in bedroom, marks and stains on sofa and living room carpet. A lot of rubbish outside in and around the bins, which had presumably been left by other guests but was covered in flies as though it had been there some time. Strange set up with the tv, couldn’t get it to do anything except play Netflix (despite reading instructions) <br/>10am check out is too early considering the price paid





This place is a great place to stay as it has a great location right opposite two lovely pubs and close to a station that can take you to other little villages or straight into Whitby. However, it was easy enough to get a taxi into Whitby if you would prefer. The house had everything you would need and there was plenty of space. The pictures were accurate and it was a lovely place to stay. They were also very helpful and quick to reply if you had any problems. We would definitely stay again.



Beautiful place to stay, we are already planning our next trip.





Really lovely cottage for a holiday! Great layout and everything we needed for a family and grandparents! Location is great, nice and quiet and having the nice big garden for the kids to run around and say hello to the sheep was a treat. Comfy beds and great showers (very important to us)! Good communication from the hosts too. Would definitely love to return!



Excellent location, opposite lovely pub. Plenty of space at property, well equipped.<br/><br/>Needs a little tlc to non opening windows and leaking radiator



Overall we felt this was a nice family cottage with nicely designed and equipped kitchen, dining room and lounge. It’s location in Egton village is perfect as opposite two pubs. The TV snug room on the 3rd floor is a great feature. Off road parking for two cars at the front door a bonus. The newly fitted kitchen was well equipped and all the appliances worked well. The Wi-Fi and TV worked extremely perfectly.<br/><br/>The 3rd floor bedroom is accessed through the en-suite and the restricted headroom in the bedroom needing care whilst walking around.<br/>The lack of advertised BBQ although the agent did reimburse cost of disposable ones during our stay.<br/>Arriving to find both rubbish bins full.



Thank you the house was just as the photos and very spacious. Very friendly pub across the road and the food was good. We would love to visit again if we come this way.



Great place to stay in a lovely location. Would recommend to anybody looking to stay near Whitby or North Yorkshire. You’ll come away wanting to live there.



Beautiful house, very comfortable beds and sofa, well kitted out and lovely garden. Photos don’t do it justice.



Exactly as per photos, very comfortable and excellent location. We will definately be back here again.



Lovely house in a great location. The pub over the road is a great bonus. Very quiet village, not far from whitby. Would definately recommend.



Great place and great communication.



Business stay during COVID lockdown so can't comment on the convenience of the location, but this is a beautiful part of the world and was perfect for working in Glaisdale. A good base for those wishing to explore the Esk Valley and beyond and not far from local attractions in Whitby.<br/><br/>Spotlessly clean and great underfloor heating in the dining room/kitchen and central heating all round to keep at bay all that the British weather throw at us for the 2 weeks we were there.<br/><br/>Didn't get the chance to use the outdoor space, but courtyard provides a good private outdoor space with decent garden to the rear.<br/><br/>All in all a pleasant stay, and if I was stopping in the area for leisure would happily stay again.



Lovely cottage, very stylish and spacious in a great village location a stones throw away from Whitby. Shout out to The Witching Post pub opposite for fantastic take out fish and chips!



This is a beautify property in a great location. The property has been recently renovated with the odd teething problem which was taken care of by the hosts. <br/><br/>We look forward to returning to the property again.



Fabulous holiday home, well equipped and very comfortable for 6 adults. Excellently positioned for exploring the North Yorkshire moors and Whitby. We would strongly recommend The Wheatsheaf pub opposite, food was excellent.



Fantastic accommodation and location



A really lovely place to stay, everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable break, the garden is a real surprise with stunning views across the North York Moors, just wonderful. We will be back??

Home Truths

Arncliffe View is located in a quiet, rural village so if it's busy city style break you're looking for, this property isn't for you.

The house has three floors so you will need to climb stairs throughout your stay.
