“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Argil Cottage. The cottage itself is tastefully decorated and provides a welcoming and homely feel. The location of the cottage is also good; there are so many places to visit in the local area that you really don't have to travel far, unless you really want to. As well as providing a lovely welcome pack, Kathy also recommends different places to eat. You will be spoilt for choice, but again, the cottage is well-equipped if you want to stay in and cook for yourself. Everywhere is also meticulously clean. Argil Cottage really does come highly recommended. PS The timely addition of internet access was much appreciated!

“Superb cottage- the perfect base for a relaxing family holiday”
Reviewed 29 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We are a family of five (three young children of 5,3 &1) and we have just spent the most amazing week at ARGIL cottage. The house was everything we hoped it would be. The kids have been so excited to return here each evening after busy days exploring the area and my husband and I have felt truly relaxed in this lovely home.
ARGIL cottage is a sunny, happy house. It is well decorated and furnished and lovingly maintained. Everything in the house works just as it should and the accommodation is really well proportioned. The little courtyard at the back of the property provided a safe place for the kids to potter. It was great to have the garage to pop scooters and the kids bikes into when we didn't want a full car boot! A quality travel cot, highchair and stair gate ensured our youngest child was safe and happy too.
Kathy has been a pleasure to deal with. Her communication has been superb from initial contact through to communication during the week of our holiday. You can tell it is really important to her that all her guests have a great stay.
There is so much to do in this area. Highlights of our week include a visit to Castle Howard, a day at the Ryedale show (what a great experience) and a full day at Flamingo Land, The village pub, the Golden Lion, is a few doors down the road provides a warm welcome and serves good food.

“Wonderful Cottage in superb area”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Having spent many hours looking for a holiday cottage in Yorkshire I happened upon Argil Cottage and I'm so pleased I did. It is truly a wonderful place, a real home from home that has been beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need. Our young daughter loved the single room and the benefit of having a separate dining room and sitting room (both a great size - this is no pokey new build!) meant she had her own play area. The kitchen has lovely utensils and cooking materials and a dishwasher is always welcome! The view from the kitchen and back yard across rolling fields to hills was beautiful and, whilst the village only has a family friendly pub, the serenity of being in the country was great. Kathy, the owner, was incredibly welcoming and left some lovely touches to welcome us (I won't spoil the surprises!) and couldn't have been nicer or more helpful from booking to staying.
Quite probably the best holiday cottage we've ever stopped in, terrific value for money, great location to all sorts of attractions and beaches - our week away flew by. I can't recommend this place highly enough - you won't be disappointed!

I live in one of the most beautiful parts of Yorkshire and I'm so pleased you brought your family and enjoyed yourselves so much. I delight in preparing the cottage and, of course, it feels wonderful to receive such kind comments . Do come and visit again some time, it would be great to welcome you back.

Kind regards,
Kathy

“Perfect find”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

Argil cottage was so cosy and comfortable. The cottage is situated near to some lovely places like Helmsley, Pickring and Malton. The interior was very clean and the beds were very comfortable with lovely bedding. As it was Easter when we visited Kathy had left us 4 small chocolate eggs. There was also fresh eggs, fudge and biscuits for us on our arrival. We ate out at some lovely restaurants which are just a 15 minute drive from the cottage. I would definitely book this cottage again .

“Even better than the photos!”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We loved this tasteful,homely and spacious cottage. Every room is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you could wish for. Lots of extra touches made this an outstanding holiday home. There are lovely countryside views from the kitchen and a pleasant patio area at the back of the house. Our choice for half term was Paris or Argil Cottage!! We made the right choice!
