“Good Location”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

River Cottage is in a quiet location ideal if you want to totally switch off as no mobile phone coverage. Next door to a quiet country pub offering good food. However if you have disabilities the double bed which is on the floor would not suit you as you cannot get up or down my wife and I ended up sleeping separate still having to put two single mattresses on one bed for her to manage. The shower over bath could be difficult as no holding rail to assist. The seater settee very low and if you sat on it even lower as was bed settee you disapeared in it. The cottage smelt damp on arrival but once heating on it was OK. Some of the crockery was chipped, oven dishes cracked and frying pans not nice so didn't use could do with throwing away. With just a little upgrade this place could be really comfortable and a place to return to.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A really lovely cottage. Well equipped and cosy we felt very at home here. Some nice touches too with things like magazines and books for all to read. For us the only thing that let it down was the pub next door which aside from being very unfriendly towards us also created a large amount of noise on one of the nights with noisy loud smokers underneath our windows until the early hours. Aside from this we loved the location and the locals were so friendly we would definitely return.

“A little hidden gem”
Reviewed 6 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A delightful holiday cottage, extremely well equipped, and although next to the local pub, quiet and peaceful. The meals served were excellent although the only problem was that they stopped serving at 7.30.p.m. but there are plenty of options for eating out, the fish and chips near the pier at Saltburn and The Ship Inn at Saltburn are worth putting on your list. The cottage is ideally placed for Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Moors, etc. We used the cottage as a base for playing golf in the Redcar area and it was ideal. We would certainly recommend River Cottage for a quiet and relaxing stay.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Had a short break at River Cottage (3 nights) in early May. Thoroughly relaxing time and the cottage was beautifully appointed. Immaculately clean and good quality fixtures and fittings. Owners were a pleasure to deal with (my wife handled that!). They provided a high chair and travel cot for our 5 month old and a bottle of wine for the adults! Lovely location, pub friendly next door and the guest book revealed a good menu although we didn't eat there. Ideal spot to explore the Cleveland Coast - you can walk to Staithes, close to Whitby, Guisborough, North York Moors attractions, Robin Hoods Bay etc.

No mobile signal was a blessing!

We went for a Christmas break, from the South the journey is normally 5 hours, however this was a bad day to travel on, i think we went on the 22nd Dec, the journey was 8 hours of stop and start traffic with a rammed full car and the kids in the back. So we got there in the dark all hungry and tired and in need of stretching our legs. We opened the door and hoped it would be nice, well, WOW, it was the cleanest holiday cottage we have had in the north east, there was a very welcome bottle of wine in the fridge and the Christmas tree was up with the lights on and a few lamps on around the house, it was beautiful !!! all mod cons very modern and up to date decor, everything was so clean. the area so blissfully peaceful, the pub next door like a step back in time but thats how these pubs should be, very friendly locals and landlady made us very welcome, especially on Christmas day while we had our turkey cooking next door we popped in for a drink. Totally reccomend this cottage and will be coming again. Two slight criticisms, would of been good to have a washing machine, more so if we had been staying for two weeks, andthe sofas, not the most comfortable especially the sofa bed extremely painful thing to sit in. But wold not put us off coming again, it was a superb first class, five star Cottage and location.
