Guestbook comments from the owner

'The Old Coach House' what a gem! Thank you Pam and Richard for our welcome pack of tea, coffee milk and wine! We had a wonderful time during our 9 days here, so much to see and do. Wonderful walks and places of interest with lots of pub/restaurants to choose from, our favourite being The Blacksmiths Arms at Westow. Your cottage is so perfect, very cosy and well-presented. We will be back! Mick and Chris, Whitstable, Kent.

Many thanks Pam for such a warm welcome. Your cottage is lovely and cosy and you have obviously given great thought to what your guests require- well done you!

Must 'dos' are Eden Camp, Castle Howard, National Railway Museum and steam train to Whitby. The moors are breathaking and have fabulous walks suitable for all.

This is our first visit to Yorkshire and we can't wait to come and stay with you again. Simon and Heather, South Wales.

Your cottage and your welcome have been greatly appreciated! We looked for something cosy, quaint and with all mod cons - and found it here with you! The area is magical and you even laid on the most perfect weather so views were fully appreciated! Very many thanks. Carolyn and Alistair, Surrey

Thank you Pam and Richard for the very warm welcome, the wine and provisions. Such a kind thought and much appreciated. We love Yorkshire - what a wonderful county! The perfect base and oasis to discover a little of the stunning area. We enjoyed Whitby, Scarborough, Robin Hood's Bay, but the highlights must surely be the steam train from Pickering, the drive over the moors, Dalby Forest and Eden Camp. Pam and Blair, Northampton

Had a fantastic week in your superb cottage. We did a little bit of everything from walking trips, York by train (good tip!) visit to Whitby and Scarborough to revive childhood and young family memories. Weather great and food excellent at The Jolly Farmers! Norman and Brenda, West Lothian.

Fantastic cottage and brilliant location! There is so much to do and a lot we didn't have time to explore so will definitely be back! The cottage was a great base with everything we needed. Thank you for all your local knowledge and tips for where to go and how to get there. We're off to Dalby Forest now - hope to visit again next year. Simon and Dee, Loughborough.

Another wonderful stay for New Year! This is the third time we have stayed here and it never loses it appeal. The cottage was immaculate on arrival and very cosy with all the little Christmas touches. Nicola and Mark, County Durham

Very cosy cottage and fully equipped with everything needed for a very pleasant stay. We had a really lovely holiday in Burythorpe and Pam and Richard were very welcoming hosts. Would stay there again.

Beautiful cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage. Everything was as we expected, peaceful location with everything we needed. The cottage was very well maintained and the owners who lived next door were excellent hosts who gave perfect service. I would recommend the cottage . The pub just across the road was perfect too.

Ideal location, Kitchen too small to cook a real meal, 2 bathrooms in ad, 1 v small shower room only

  • 2 of 5

Delightful location, and loved being in this part of Yorkshire. But won't return to the cottage as it is a lot smaller than advertised,the kitchen is only big enough for one person, microwave door opens onto hotplate of cooker, which showed signs it had happened to others. Fortunately really good pubs to eat in locally. Two bathrooms advertised but none provided, only a very small shower room which of course had the only toilet as well. So again only one person could use at a time. Fortunately these things didn't spoil our break. It's just disappointing when you are expecting something better for the price.

Owner's Response: Our sincere apologies for the incorrect information on the website regarding the bathroom(s). This error is historical due to a mistake on Owner's Direct part which I had previously spoken to them about in the past. It has now finally been rectified and now reads correctly so thank you for bringing it to our attention. We are disappointed that you felt that the cottage was 'a lot smaller than advertised and that the kitchen was only big enough for one person". We have owned the cottage for 10 years and within that time no-one has ever commented that the cottage was smaller than expected. On the contrary we have had couples stay for two, three and four weeks at a time and we are regularly booked over Christmas and New Year when a full roast dinner is prepared and cooked. We have many couples who return every year and the comments in the Visitors Book are highly complimentary - 'kitchen well-equipped', 'the cottage has everything you could wish for and more','fantastic cosy cottage for two', 'a great place to come back to after a day out', 'a real home from home'. We also regularly review the market pricing for similar dwellings and we believe our prices are very competitive. Again we can only apologise that it did not reach your expectations but are pleased to read that you found the location delightful and that you loved being in this part of Yorkshire.

A charming and cosy cottage just right for two.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very comfortable weekend in Burythorpe. The cottage is ideally situated for walks exploring the beautiful local countryside and the inviting pub directly opposite was an added bonus. Pam, the owner, was very helpful and we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.

The cottage is in the centre of the peaceful village of Burythorpe, and four miles from the thriving market town of Malton.

Further Details:

Nestling in the pretty village of Burythorpe on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds and ideally located for the North Yorkshire Moors, this Grade II listed detached former Coach House has been sympathetically converted and now offers lovely accommodation in a peaceful environment. This charming cottage is very well presented and tastefully furnished to a high standard, making a cosy retreat for couples. Walks start from the door along designated footpaths with the Wolds Way, Centenary Way and Tabular Way near by. Dalby Forest on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park offers amazing Cycle Trails to suit all abilities as well as walks throughout the forest area. We are also located only a few miles from where world renowned artist David Hockney produced his vivid pictures of the Yorkshire landscape for his 'A Bigger Picture ' exhibition at the Royal Academy'. The World of James Herriot is also situated near Thirsk which is only a 40 minute drive from the village.

For those visitors interested in wine, why not visit Britain's most northerly commercial vineyard only 2 miles from the cottage, where award winning wines can be purchased.

Malton has been named the 'county's culinary capital' after the success of the fifth annual Malton Food Lovers Festival. Why not book a week in May 2018 to coincide with the next festival and see celebrity chefs in action!

After a day walking and exploring this unspoilt rural region, you can relax in the lovely summerhouse or dine al fresco. Burythorpe has a renowned pub/restaurant and the market town of Malton (4 miles) offers a variety of shops, restaurants and a farmers market on the last Saturday of every month.

The cottage is situated in an historic area with the following places of interest all within easy driving distance - Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall, city of York, North Yorkshire Moors Railway to ’Heartbeat’ country departing from Pickering and the seaside resorts on the Yorkshire Coast.
