Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Brackenedge has been everything that we had hoped and more. It was a lovely surprise to find a beautiful clean and homely house with a garden ideal for the children. To find so many little added extras meant a lot.

Fabulous cottage, beautiful location. Everything we needed and more.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in April 2018 for 3 nights as a group of 10. We could not believe how big the cottage actually was, the photos dont quite catch how large it actually is. There is plenty of living space for large groups, the garden is beautfully kept and again huge. The cottage comes complete with everything you could ever need and more. The owners have really thought of everything. We all really enjoyed are stay and would love to return in the future. There is so much to see and do in the local area, you will need more than 3 days to explore. We all can highly recommend this cottage to anyone you will not be disappointed. Thankyou for letting us stay in your fabulous cottage. 😃?😃?

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Brackenedge is a lovely holiday home. It has everything you need and is very spacious, plenty big enough for two families. The house is clean and the beds are comfy. There are lots of clean towels and bedding. The garden is lovely and secure and the surroundings are beautiful. It's a shame it rained for 3 days because we would have gone on some long walks. Would definitely return.

Long Weekend : 7th - 10th Aug

  • 5 of 5

This house is massive. It's hard to believe when looking at the pictures on the website but out party consisted of 6 adults and 6 children and at NO time did I feel as though we were on top of each other. All of the rooms are really spacious and the Garden was great for the both kids activities and adult relaxation, not at the same time though.

The property was really clean and well maintained, the facilities were excellent with large plasma tv's in all communal rooms. I would have no hesitation recommending this property to either families with young children or groups of adults. My party had a really good time and will be looking to book again for next year.

An excellent large property in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We booked Brackenedge on very short notice, after we were let down by another property owner, but had a lovely stay. We were a large party (six adults and three children), but at no point did we feel crowded or uncomfortable.

The railway station, from which you can get to Whitby, is just a short walk away and the National Moors Centre is well worth a visit.

You take your chances with the weather in this part of the world, but the real fire makes this house a warm sanctuary on cold or wet evenings.

What a lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

I think we were the first family to stay at this cottage. It is absolutely huge! so much space, made it very easy staying with other couples & their children. All very clean, nice linen etc., full country experience staying there with the fires and everything. Village is lovely, good pubs, and lots to do in local area. Whitby and Saltburn both very nice and easy to drive there for the day. Would definitely recommend this cottage.
