We have enjoyed two of your pubs, the play park and walking the footpaths. We also enjoyed the steam train from Pickering. Thank you for the beautifully equipped kitchen for cooking and lovely soap in the bathrooms. You did such a lot to make us feel welcome and at home. All the games, DVDs and books were so good for the younger members of our group. Thank you for opening your beautiful home to groups, we will be back."

"Had a wonderful relaxing time at this beautiful cottage in the lovely village of Rosedale. The cottage has a very well equipped kitchen. We especially liked the games, books and DVDs as well as the large screen TV in the lounge. We visited both of the pubs and enjoyed coffee and cake in the Abbey Tea Rooms - it's just next door and the cakes are irresistible. We had several days out at Whitby, Sandsend and Runswick Bay. We will be back later in the year as we didn't get chance to visit the Steam Railway."
