    My dog and I have had a wonderful week in Rosedale, helped by plenty of sunshine. It's a comfortable and homely cottage surrounded by beautiful scenery. Our week was a real tonic - peace, quiet, lovely walks and, as a 70 year old widow, the peace of mind of having helpful, welcoming owners on site. For me and what I enjoy in a break away from home, it's absolutely ideal.

    No personal touch,never saw or heard from anyone during our stay. Cleanliness could have been better.Heating should be under the control of the people staying there,not on a timer under the control of the owners . We had to have the extra electric heater on to warm the cottage. Not value for money,tired looking cold and not matching the lovely area it sits in. Not a great advert for North Yorkshire or Cottages For You. I will be reluctant to book with you again.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner:- Thank you for your feedback on your stay in Rosedale Cottage. We really value our customers’ feedback and always use it to help improve our accommodation. So we’re sorry you were disappointed with the cottage - we don’t like our visitors to go home anything less than satisfied, refreshed and revitalised. Unfortunately the 3 night period of your stay coincided with my being unavoidably away on family duties but my husband returned on the Friday and was at home for the rest of the duration of your stay. The contact details of a member of staff who lives locally is always left should guests need to contact someone. We’re sorry you found the cottage lacking: the kitchen and bathroom were refitted earlier this year, and we have renewed all soft furnishings, beds and bed linen, towels, kitchen items and most of the furniture. We place additional heaters in all cottages (3 heaters in the case of Rosedale) for guests to use if necessary. The central heating timers are set for long periods (for the period you were there: 6.30 am to 11.00 am and 3.00 pm to 11.00pm) and are changed according to the season. As the information folder states, guests can easily increase the temperature by using the radiators’ individual valves, and they are welcome to use the additional heaters. Previous guests have told us that this is a more than adequate arrangement, but we will of course take your feedback into account. All cottages have additional cosy rugs and bedding for those times when you just wish to hunker down in front of the smart TV! I am sorry you found the cleanliness of the cottage wanting; we always clean thoroughly before each arrival of new guests and can only assure you that we will check and redouble our efforts. Once again thank you for your feedback, please accept our apologies for a disappointing stay.

    Lovely location, very friendly and approachable owners who didn't mind us roaming around their gardens and land. Very quiet accommodation even though we had neighborous either side. Kitchen very well equipt. Plenty of in house entertainment like board games, jigsaws etc. Very comfy bed, duvet, and cushions - like new! Bathroom small but perfectly adequate. We walked to the pub 2 miles away and it was very easy going - mostly flat. Takes just over an hour to get to. Local amenities have everything you need and the locals are friendly. Lots of nature - barn owl behind the cottage; spotted tawny owl, and slow worm. Lots of scenic walks (we went off the beaten track) Overall - excellent!

    Lovely cottage in a picturesque location. Helpful owner. Comfy beds, have had to buy a new mattress for our own bed after experiencing the beds in Rosedale cottage! A lovely relaxing short break. We're currently working out when we can return, hopefully for longer next time to see more of the area

    We actually stayed in Ferndale as Rosedale was being refurbished. The views from the upstairs bedroom were stunning. The dog loved the garden and I loved the windmill. The owners were very welcoming and was always on hand. We had a wonderful time really relaxing and chilled out break.

    Lovely place, great stay and Mrs Liddle is brilliant. The mark of 4 for local amenities is just because it's quite a trek to a shop. However we were fine with that and the remoteness was actually a plus point, since we're quite capable of going prepared. The amount of furniture in the main room made it tricky sometimes since there were 4 of us and 2 dogs.

    If Faulty Towers did cottages! Now where to start…. Something positive…. I love Yorkshire and the Whitby area. So we let ourselves in to the cottage, which was a struggle in itself. We stayed in the Rosedale cottage, which has an outer door that doesn’t open and close properly. It needed too hands and a right big push with your entire body to move. Very tricky on the way out when it’s a pull and you have a dog in tow. Dog friendly is not the same a dog tolerant! Nothing for a dog, not even a space suitable to put a dog bed, but I’ll get on to that shortly. We arrived bang on time yet there was nobody around to greet us. Our stay was in mid-November and there was beautiful snow on the hills. Didn’t seem to occur to anyone to put the heating on? The cottage was freezing and didn’t really improve until we had been there a few days and had every bit of electrical heater on in the place. After 15 mins or so we had a visitor, a hello from the owner, and in hind sight just seems a pre-emptive excuse for the state of the place. But that’s okay, they have Wi-Fi! I really could write an assay on the faults with this place, but if you want the short version Dirty, unsafe, cold, crowded, uncomfortable, out dated and awkward to get to. The bathroom has no stink! Dirty: The place had thick muck and dust over everything on the walls, and the wall/ceiling upstairs had mould, holes, oh and the cobwebs! Unsafe: Arching heater, kitchen layout horrendous (to make toast we had to balance the toaster on two feet on a cooker ring to reach the power point). The kettle and microwave within inches of the sink and constantly getting wet. Nails sticking out of the wall, at head height and sharp hooks with nothing on them. Crowded & Uncomfortable: Tiny main room with masses of furniture. There were only two of us and a dog and we struggled to sit down and see the TV. Four chairs round the table, but only room for two to sit, and then you can’t get to the kitchen area. We had to step over the dog and his bed to make a cuppa or go to the loo. The bathroom was that tiny! Me at just over 5 foot tall struggled to get in the shower. You can just image how my partner at 6’ 4” coped. And if you missed it…. THERE IS NO SINK! To go from the main bedroom to the bathroom, you had to go down stairs, trip over the furniture (and dog) out into the cold passage way (like going outside), which included putting on full clothing and shoes, then come back an us the sink in the kitchen area. Lovely in the middle of the night. Oh and mind you head on those beams directly over the bed! Outdated: The décor was a right old miss match of styles, colours and eras. Bazaar wall hangs from 80’s fairies in the bedroom to broken dish lids in the main room. The information folder and leaflet box was an archive in itself. Nothing useful in there at all however, rather funny. One of the leaflets was that old, the place had a pre 01 phone number and the activity cost 90p We come from the Lake Distract & Yorkshire and have a Jeep, so please don’t just read this and think townies. This place is awful to get to. The road to the cottage is narrow, steep, windy, muddy and difficult navigate in the dark. We decided not to walk on the road as it was unsafe. 4x4 is a must! I have so many more issues with this place. It needs some serious TLC and ‘we’ve only had the place 6 months, just does not cut it’.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback on your stay in Rosedale Cottage. We really value our customers’ feedback and will use it to help improve our accommodation. So we’re sorry you were disappointed with the cottage - we don’t like our visitors to go home anything less than satisfied, refreshed and revitalised. We bought the business in April 2016, and you’ll be pleased to know that renovation is under way. The changes we have already made include the installation of high-speed broadband, all new single beds, bed linen, towels, brand new matching crockery and glassware. The website photographs show that Rosedale is a compact, beamed cottage but it has requisite seating and is more than adequately equipped for 4 people. Many families and parties with large dogs have happily stayed there before. Before guests arrive, the cottages are cleaned and prepared thoroughly so your comments about cleanliness are more than a little disappointing, but have been noted. As my welcome letter says: “If there is something wrong or missing, please just tell us whilst you are here; we can usually put it right! If you go home dissatisfied and just make comments online, then it’s too late for us to try and improve things for you.” Your stay was during the coldest week this year and we would happily have provided extra heating and removed unwanted chairs had you asked. In November we made a major investment in a new central boiler and thermostats for the cottages to complement the new hot water system installed earlier in the year. Farndale cottage (next to yours) has been the first to receive a super new shower room (including basin!) which you will be able to see once photographs are updated on the website. We consider that our ongoing program of improvement will enhance the stays of future visitors. The location is undeniably beautiful, but with its relative remoteness (2 ½ miles from the nearest village) comes the very quiet, narrow roads and fantastic walking countryside.

    The cottage was freezing when we arrived and felt that nobody had been in it for a while. It must have taken a good 24 hours to warm up and we used electric heaters to try to maintain temperature. We had to sit in virtually our jackets the first night. Apart from this the cottage isn't in a bad location and the cleanliness was ok.
