Booked the house for just two but decided to take two of our adult kids and Ellen was so kind about the change. Her house Is great in so many ways. I'd love to live there. House has everything you could need so see what's there before you stop at supermarket. Ellen makes the best shortbread I've ever eaten and I've tried a lot. Ellen you've spoiled me for any other.
We spent 5 nights in a this lovely farmhouse. It was an excellent find and we are so pleased that we booked with Ellen. The farmhouse is set on a working farm and the house is kept in a high order. Everything was clean and a lot of amenities were provided to make sure that we were well catered for and it included a games room which kept our children (aged 4 to 7) entertained.
The farmhouse is set in a beautiful location and Ellen's story about her history of the farmhouse was very touching. She was an excellent host and made contact with us before we arrived to see if we had any requirements. She also provided milk, bread, butter and eggs which after a long drive was a very welcome touch. She kept in contact with us throughout our holiday to make sure that we were all well and finding everything to our satisfaction. She went out of her way to tell us some local sights to explore and enjoy and made some fab shortbread biscuits. Ellen went out of her way to take the children onto the farm to see the animals and everyone enjoyed the stay.
We went to the following places, Salburn-by-the-Sea (lovely beach), Shillingrove Beach (an even better beach and isolated), Whitby Bay and Whitby Abbey(stunning), a walk along the beautiful moors, Roseberry Toppings (a lovely little walk) and Robins Hood Bay (rockpooling!). All were a short drive from the farmhouse. We definitely recommend staying here if you are ever up this way!
This farmhouse above the Cleveland coast is ideal for a family stay. Ellen made us welcome, and the games room, toys and books kept the kids busy, and we got to see some newborn lambs and calves. The decor of the rooms may not be the latest, but it has everything you need, 2 bathrooms, TVs, wifi and more pig adornments than you can wish for. Its also well located between saltburn, staithes and the moors centre at Danby.
we had a lovely few days here, the farmhouse is lovely and very well equipped with every thing we needed. It was lovely sitting in the very peaceful garden enjoying a bbq. It was very well located for our trips out to Whitby, Redcar etc. Highly recomended.
