“Return visits a must.”
Reviewed 7 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Welcoming hostess, discreetly available to assist. Perfectly clean, comfortable, spacious accomodation with home comforts. Private parking, stunning views from large picture window in the lounge and from other windows throughout. Efficient shower. Nicely furnished.
Straightforward booking procedure. Wifi, bed linen and towels included. A great place to stay for visits to the coast and country areas of this lovely area. Great birdwatching walking and wildlife. A lovely stay, thanks so much. Looking forward to visiting again.

“Perfect”

Everything we expected and more, beautiful scenery, extremely comfortable accommodation and a very warm welcome. We couldn't ask for anymore and will return in the future.

“So peaceful”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A lovely cottage in peaceful surroundings with fantastic views. What more could we ask. We had a wonderful stay and our Grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed it. Not too far from Scarborough or Whitby, driving through stunning countryside. Joanna lives on site and is on hand for any problems but isn't intrusive. The cottage is well equipped, tastefully furnished and quite roomy for its size.

“Fantastic cottage and a warm welcome”
Reviewed 3 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have really enjoyed staying in the Stables cottage which is maintained to the highest of standards. It is in a lovely location with stunning views all around. When we arrived we received a warm welcome from our hosts Joanna & Robin. It's not the first time we have stayed at Murkhead Holiday Cottages in fact this is our 10th year at Murkhead that is how much we enjoy staying here. On the edge of the North York Moors between Whitby & Scarborough it is the perfect place to explore the Moors & East coast. We will be coming back again soon.
