“Idyllic cottage far from the madding crowd...perfect”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Picture perfect holiday cottage, beautifully renovated and pristine. Beds were comfortable with gorgeous views. Plenty of space and lovely private cottage garden to enjoy. Such a peaceful spot. It was amazing to eat our warm freshly cooked bread, pastries and coffee on the sunny terrace with bees humming and birdsong. Really set us up for the day.
Rosedale is not far away, lovely village with quaint shops and pubs. Fabulous walks to enjoy. A complete retreat, want to stay longer next time!

“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This cottage provided our extended family with a lovely, throughly enjoyable holiday. We love our once-a-year family holiday together, so the choice of cottage is essential for its success. There was something to suit each of us, and the local golf course-hilly pitch and put crazy golf- was a big hit. I would have joined them if it wasn't for my illness, but as it was I found the little tea room-Graze OnThe Green -with the little side garden to sit in perfect for me, Paul and our granddaughter. The Blacksmith's Country Inn was amazing; the food outstanding so we are really glad we let the kids take us there for our anniversary evening meal while away. The steam train was perfect for all, and Whitby not too far away for a day out, especially as we somehow got perfect weather. We were going to have a BBQ the evening we got there no matter what so the weather was a bonus.
Thanks again for a wonderful few days and I will be recommending you to my friends.

Thank you so much for your review, I am so pleased you had such a great holiday. Graze on the Green and the Blacksmith's are two of my favourite local eateries too so I will pass on your comments. And it's wonderful to hear that you all found something in Rosedale to suit your needs, there is certainly a huge variety of activities locally- even for the non walkers/cyclists! Kind regards.

“Beautiful cottage with outstanding views”
Reviewed February 24, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had a fab weekend with my children 6 & 8yrs, dog, grandparents and brother. There was plenty of space for all of us and the facilities were of a very good standard. The kitchen had everything you would need and the homemade bread was a lovely touch on arrival. The dog was only allowed downstairs but I understood this with it being the winter and muddy paws. The views from the cottage were beautiful and there was so much to do in the area even on a damp day. I would highly recommend this cottage.

“Fabulous house with awesome views”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great holiday here at Medds Farm house. The house was very clean and comfortable and the owner had literally thought of everything a family could possibly need, down to leaving a towel and waste bags for our family dog, and also leaving a welcome pack consisting of nice wine, fresh bread and eggs and local honey for our arrival - a lovely touch. The views from this house are heavenly, and there is plenty of outdoor seating,to enable you to sit back and and enjoy them. We would absolutely recommend staying here as a terrific base for visiting the delights of North Yorkshire, and would have no hesitation in booking up again in the future.

“a wonderful cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I stayed here with my family in august 2014 for a week. The cottage is perfect and has everything you could possibly need for a self catering cottage and it was perfectly clean and well decorated. The owner left a welcome pack with fresh eggs from the farm next door and beautiful home made bread and a pot of local honey - delicious. The location was perfect for us - close to all the attractions we wanted to visit. I will definitely book this cottage again.

“Great place to stay, relaxing, peaceful and with the most fantastic views”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I stayed here with a couple of friends for a relaxing weekend in June. The cottage had the most fantastic views and was a great place to stay it was so peaceful. It was in a great location for going for walks and also for visiting local attractions. The local village of Rosedale was very pretty and within walking distance and has a couple of fab local pubs.

The cottage itself was a lovely size with lots of room and was clean, well equippped and looked newly re-furbished.

I will certainly re-vist and would recommend to friends.
