“Wonderful base for exploring North Yorkshire”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at the wonderful Platform 1 again, this time for the week, to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We brought along our 18 month old Jack Russell, Twiglet, who had a whale of a time running around the wild garden at the property in between walks in Whitby, Scarborough, Helmsley and Dalby Forest. We were warmly welcomed by Anne and basket of goodies along with towels and treats for Twiglet. A Yorkshire girl who had relatives living nearby whilst I growing up, I know the area well but it's lovely to have such a luxurious base from which to explore and discover new places. The cottage is well equipped, cosy, comfortable and was a pleasure to relax in when the April showers hit. We ate at the nearby Crown and Cushion in Welburn and had our anniversary dinner at The Talbot in Malton. Castle Howard Station is a truly lovely spot, we are planning to return for a third time.

“Blissful relaxed country break”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The welcome we got from Edmund and Anne was very warming and helpful. Throughout the stay they were more than ready to answer a call if we had any questions about the cottage or local attractions. Having done much of the renovation to Platform1 themselves, conversations with Edmund were very interesting in understanding the past history about the place we were staying in.

Cottage amenities were plenty with ample kitchen ware if you wished to cater for yourself and DVD (with films) and Sky freeview to keep you entertained if needed. With a lovely log burner to keep the room cosy on the evenings we had all that was needed for a relaxing time at the cottage.

The local pubs within a mile walk in either direction were fab for food and beer choices. The Crown and Cushion being one and the Stonetrough being the other. Dont forget the Leaf and Loaf for excellent breads and cakes!

We took advantage of the ideal location as there were plenty of walks and cycling opportunties on the doorstep of the cottage. We even combined a cycle ride to Castle Howard and a walk around the grounds on one of our days.

Overall, it was a very nice place to spend time, made even more pleasant by the friendly and helpful owners. Hoepfully we will be back again!

Many thanks Tony & Carol- you were great guests.
Our mantra is 'if our guests are happy -then we are happy' cribbed from an old Irish saying 'if Mammy's happy -everyone's happy...' which I think has a slightly darker meaning!!
