Very Good

“Perfect weekend stay”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2018

We arrived at River Cottage on a beautiful sunny day. The gardens were stunning with the lovely beck running through the garden. The house is finished to a high standard with everything you could possibly need. Very clean and tidy with the added touch of fresh scones on arrival. If there was one little thing I’d say the mattress in the master bedroom was a little firm for my liking but that’s personal preference. Would definitely recommend this little haven only 5 minutes drive from the beaches in Scarborough.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay (and the wedding you attended whilst here!). We hope you will decide to return for another visit on another occasion.

“Beautiful Cottage”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2018

Recently stayed at the River Cottage for my Mothers 50th birthday and a family get away and was very impressed! We had 3 dogs with us who loved the freedom of running in the back garden and jumping in the River. The Cottage is stunning and has a real warm feeling about it, with beautiful bathrooms and stunning kitchen/living area. The owners were very accommodating with nice touches and always made sure we had everything we needed. They also provided various kitchen essentials and most importantly wood for the log burner in the living room which we all loved. Locally there is a few country pubs that are within walking distance and allow dogs inside that was handy and Scarborough a short drive away were you can source local fish and chips (Watch out for the seagulls aloft as they are really good shots when needing the toilet. I was hit once and my newly purchased fish and chips was hit in the same day!). The only negative I could comment on is the River at the rear is open and if you have a Husky as we did with a poor recall, they can venture away chasing small animals etc.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your lovely review, we really appreciate it and are delighted that you enjoyed your stay.

“Beautiful Loaction and Cottage”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2017

Stayed here with 7 adults, 1 toddler and a baby. This cottage was the perfect size and absolutely beautiful. The gardens are well maintained and a BBQ and patio is available. The cottage had everything we needed for your stay and the owners couldn't do enough for us, really enjoyed our stay and already planning to book again next year.

Owner's reply: Thank you , we look forward to hearing from you.

“Family holiday and pet friendly”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2017

Ideally located 4 miles from Scarborough just off A170, 30-40 minutes drive to either Whitby, Filey, Bridlington and York an hour away. River Cottage is situated in its own grounds with an electric gate at the entrance, (provided with 2 remotes) plenty of parking spaces available. The River Derwent runs along the side of its grounds which our dog and teenagers loved to play in (about 2ft deep). Tried fishing too, no permit needed and rod available in the cottage for your use. Andrew and Tracy the owners live next door and provided some milk, tea, coffee and sugar on our arrival. Always available and very approachable. The amenities were ample, washer/dryer, which we used regularly, no washing to come home too, which was a bonus. DVD and CD player, good Wifi (kids loved), log burner, heating if needed,TV in every bedroom. Down stairs twin/king size bedroom which my parents used, as my dad has Parkinson's and not able to use stairs very well. Along with a wet room next door to the bedroom, which was ideal. Upstairs were 3 large bedrooms, family bathroom and the master bedroom with ensuite. Bright and airy, plenty of space for your clothes, clean and tidy with modern features and facilities. Would certainly recommend River Cottage, hopefully plan to return next year. Dexter says woof Andrew. Thankyou both for a beautiful Cottage to have our holiday in. Last but not least, totally recommend The Three Jolly Sailors pub in Burneside for food which allows dogs in. (15min drive away) and the spar and fish and chip shop 10 min walk along bridle path from the Cottage.

“Perfect setting”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2017

What a brilliant place to spend a few days in this beautiful part of the world. The house was well equipped and very clean and cosy. Plenty of hot water and loads of space with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. We had a lovely welcome and milk, teabags and biscuits were provided to make a cuppa while we settled in. The cottage was very quiet and positioned along a lane with no passing traffic, although we were handy for access to Scarborough.
