Here are our lovely guest reviews for Spring Cottage North Yorkshire from our even lovelier guests.
Aren’t they fantastic comments?
And they provide some top tips on where to visit, to explore and to eat. I can’t wait to welcome you all back!
A gem of a cottage! We have had a wonderful and relaxing week. We’ve enjoyed exploring the area in sunshine, wind and raid – and also just hiding from the rain in the cottage! Food at the pub in the village is also good -as was their welcome. We must return to see all the things we’ve missed – including the steam railway which has not yet opened for the season.

A gorgeous cottage with fabulous extra touches, thank you! We very much enjoyed our stay. Plenty to explore in the surrounding area and we managed to stay dry crossing the stepping stones at Egton Bridge! Off to Wharram Percy on our way home. Thanks again!

We’ve had a wonderful week here at Spring Cottage – has been the perfect holiday before maternity leave ends 🙁 ! We do quite a lot of cottage breaks so are used to bringing lots from home with us but here you really don’t need to – there is everything! Lily loved the toys, books and swing. We loved the hamper on arrival and welcome information pack. Beautiful part of the world visiting Castle Howard, Whitby, Helmsley, Malton, Pickering and the garden at Spring Cottage of course! We wold love to return again. Thank you.
December 2018 – Mary and Fred
Our second visit and again it was pure bliss. So cosy and comfortable, we didn’t mind the weather. Lovely food and welcome at the local pub and nice walks and fresh air. So lovely then to come back and chill in front of the fire with nice nibbles and wine!!
There is nothing we would change! We loved everything about the cottage, everything has been carefully considered and we loved the compliments on arrival, also catering to dietary needs. We will definitely return during warmer months as the garden is beautiful and in full bloom would be worth enjoying too. Thank you for our relaxing break.
We came for a couple of ‘girly’ days away and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is beautifully located and has every need catered for. We can highly recommend the village pub for excellent food and service. Will definitely be coming back. Thank you!
Spring Cottage was a “home from home” for the week – a perfect base from which to explore this interesting region and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only one word needed to sum up Spring Cottage from its initial information pack through to its location, decor, fixtures and fittings, garden and welcoming owners …. Superb!
Lovely stay and everything we needed. Can be especially tricky travelling with little ones. Lots of toys, things to keep busy. Enjoyed our days thoroughly. Beautiful house, visited Flamingo Land, York Maze, Whitby, Scarborough beach.
August 2017 – Malcolm and Margaret What a lovely few days we have had in this lovely cottage: everything provided including treats! We were able to visit cousins at Sleights and visit many of our old haunts. I specially enjoyed the garden (it’s my big hobby at home) – hope to come again. Many thanks Karen
June 2017 – Darren and Nikki Just enjoyed a lovely holiday at Spring Cottage which certainly didn’t disappoint! A gorgeous cottage with everything we could need and more. Very luxurious and relaxing with such a beautiful garden. Perfect for our baby and 5 year old boy and a great location for exploring Yorkshire. Lovely interior with a huge master bedroom with blackout blinds and a cosy lounge to escape to once we had put the little ones to bed! Thank you to Karen for all the little extras and for answering my many questions prior to the holiday! Definitely recommended.
And there’s more …

Always love spending time in this charming cottage. November 2016 – Marie and Ted A beautiful week, the cottage is so homely and comfortable, thank you for letting it out to us; what a little gem. Cannot fault all recommendations on eating, houses and places to visit. We will definitely be back. Thank you North Yorkshire for your kind hospitality. November 2016 – Tina and Sean, Dusseldorf This is the second entry of ours in this book and this time round it was even as good as the first, if not better! The beautiful cottage makes us feel right at home and when not enjoying/relaxing here, this time we’ve spent a day shopping and lunching in York, driving to the coast, having dinner in The Grapes and now as we leave we’ll stop by Castle Howard for a nice walk in the grounds on a lovely sunny day! Thanks Karen – am sure we’ll be back again! October 2016 – The Doyle Family A real treat of a cottage – cosy, super comfortable and everything we could possibly want supplied. A gorgeous autumn week with lots of walking and eating Thank you for your hospitality. October 2016 – Chris, Claire and Charlotte A wonderful week away. Fabulous facilities to come back to after days’ exploring. We’ve been to the coast (Runswick Bay to Scarborough), Nunnington Hall, Beninborough Hall and Gardens and Flamingo Land – just shows the wide range of activities within easy travelling distance. Thank you! September 2016 – Roger & Gill A wonderful relaxing stay at the beautiful Spring Cottage where every wish and need has been catered for. The Grapes most definitely enhanced our stay. We shall most definitely return – what more is there to say! Brilliant! September 2016 – Mr & Mrs Woosnam What a peaceful cottage. Everything you could ask for. Really enjoyed our stay – cottage and weather perfect. Fantastic pub in village and made us feel really welcome, would certainly recommend a visit to all our friends and family. August 2016 – The Steel Family Lovely stay – faultless. Afternoon Yorkshire tea on arrival was amazing; took us all week to finish the cake! We had lovely weather for our stay, Castle Howard even looked beautiful in the drizzle. Spent a lovely day at Nunnington Hall and Riveaulx Terrace in the sun. Our son (10) loved Flamingo Land which is a very short drive from here. Will definitely be back as this cottage has everything you may need and more! August 2016 – The Mountain Family This is our 3rd stay in Spring Cottage and it never fails to disappoint. We have had lovely weather so have spent 2 days in Filey – one on the beach and at the paddling pool and the 2nd we parked at the country park and enjoyed staying near the children’s play area with a picnic and games and kite flying. The other day was at Flamingo Land; kids occupied for the full day and lots to see and do. Hope to return again. Children are aged 8 and 3. August 2016 – The Stirling Family Spring Cottage is just lovely, we had a great time in Yorkshire, too much to do we will need to come back to see everything. Would highly recommend The Grapes Inn, beautiful food and great service . The boys had a great time in the garden with the Velcro bats & balls. Thank you Karen July 2016 – Mr& Mrs Raven Lovely cottage. Thank you for the bottle of wine, very nice! We enjoyed our brief visit and we were able to visit our grandson’s family close by. Would recommend cottage to anyone. X July 2016 – The Green Family Back for a 3rd year as we love Spring Cottage & beautiful Yorkshire. As usual everything was perfect, including the weather! The extra little touches are always appreciated & the girls loved the cupcakes. We are happy to recommend a stay at Spring Cottage, & having done so with my sister, it’s good to see she enjoyed it too. (See below comments from Lennox family.) Thank you! July 2016 – Lennox family We’ve had a lovely relaxing week at Spring Cottage. The weather has been a bit mixed at times, but it hasn’t spoiled our enjoyment as there’s so much to do. Castle Howard was a fantastic day and I can highly recommend a trip to York, or a ride on the North Yorkshire Moors railway to Whitby. Great food and friendly staff at the local pub, The Grapes Inn. Loved sitting out in your gorgeous garden when the sun did come out and when it didn’t the wifi was much appreciated with teenagers. Thanks so much for the perfect stay and all the little treats on arrival. Hope we get the opportunity to come back again. Xx June 2016 – Damian & Mary We had a lovely week at spring cottage, it is so relaxing, the garden is just perfect, sitting out for breakfast on the sunny mornings, lots of birds which Damian loved. Lots of places to visit, York, Whitby, Pickering, Malton and the surrounding villages. The cottage has everything you need and more. Will need to return in the winter so we can cosy up in front of the log burner. Thank you for the welcome tray, cakes were delicious, the Yorkshire wine was the nicest rose wine I’ve tried as I am not a rose fan, but would definitely buy that one. Sad to leave the cottage, felt so at home and would love to live in a cottage like this. Just perfect. June 2016 – Phil & Linda We had a lovely week at Spring Cottage. Would have liked better weather but we do come from Wales. The cottage was lovely as is Yorkshire. Perhaps next time you could arrange some sunshine. Many Thanks! June 2016 – Peter & Wendy Thank you so much- your cottage is absolutely charming, and the “luxury” tag is well deserved. All the goodies you put out for us were delicious. And the weather!! Wall-to-wall sunshine all week – and coming from the Highlands this was appreciated! May 2016 – Mr & Mrs Percival This was a break at a very stressful time of my life with aged parents and lots of other events. All I wanted was time on our own and not having a good phone signal was paradise, I didn’t let anyone know the phone number either…. We had brilliant weather spent a lot of time in the cottage but spend our birthdays (same day!) in Helmsley. We went to the garden centre down the road and Pickering. Can’t fault the cottage and everything that goes with it… you’ve done a wonderful job Karen. Keep up the good work. Have no negatives at all. May 2016 – Debra and Rodger We had a lovely relaxing time. Thank you for all your help and guidance. The area, privacy, garden and layout of the cottage was excellent. We will definitely come again and Rodger would like to know if you decide to sell! May 2016 – Mr & Mrs Prender Fantastic break; nice and relaxing and a great base to explore from. Lovely local pub with fantastic food – we were made very welcome. Thank you very much for all the lovely welcoming touches – especially the Yorkshire wine. April 2016 – Mr & Mrs Burns and Mr & Mrs Bennett We had a lovely time visiting for a long weekend whilst Le Tour de Yorkshire was on. It was great to see the crowds give support and villages decorated. The cottage is lovely, very warm and welcoming. The goodies you left were delicious. Thanks April 2016 – The Dickinson family Thank you for putting so much love and attention into Spring Cottage. We had a super time exploring the local area and eating in The Grapes! April 2016 – The Elliston family This has been a lovely holiday; one we will never forget. A great break away from our busy lives. This cottage has everything needed for a young family. The games and garden equipment allowed us to enjoy our final day in the sun before we made our journey home. March 2016 – The Bakers We’ve had a fabulous week here, visiting York, Castle Howard, Whitby and Scarborough and then coming back to relax in your beautiful cottage. The girls were thrilled with their Easter eggs and have spent hours on the swings (giving mummy and daddy a bit of peace). We’ve loved it, thank you.
