    We really love The Owlery and always look forward to our next visit. We've been coming for years and it is perfect every time. Always spotless and with everything you need for a great stay. Jacqui, the owner, is one of life's gems - so friendly and down to earth. The Owlery is very well placed for some great trips; close to Scarborough, Whitby and Pickering with the North Yorkshire moors on the doorstep. Sawdon is a lovely quiet place so it is easy to relax and unwind. We're already planning another stay!

    This is the second visit to the Owlery and we would thoroughly recommend it to other like minded people. We bring our dog and enjoy walking so it is in an ideal location for beaches, forest and moors. The cottage is very cosy and extremely well equipped, providing a great relaxing base.

    I often find 1 bedroomed properties a little cramped but this was by no means the case with The Owlery. The layout was excellent and the furnishings and equipment all that I could want for my stay.

    Great home from home. Peaceful setting. Perfect hostess. Village only has pub ,no shop. Pub busy,you need to book before your stay ! Good road connection to Scarborough and Pickering. Lots of things to do in the area.

    We had a lovely week at The Owlery. From the welcome that we had to the day we left we were made to feel at home. Joaqui, the owner, and the neighbours went out of their way to help us as we were new to the area. The cottage itself is very well equipped, clean and comfortable..especially the bed! The location, for us, was perfect as we wanted to explore the moors and do the seaside stuff. We also wanted to visit York to meet up with friends. There are also some fantastic pubs, cafes and farm restaurants. We would certainly go back and will recommend The Owlery to family and friends.

    The property was fine and the lady owner very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the pub /restaurant which was only 100yards from the Owlery was closed for holidays - no warning or advice on their website. Even Jacqui, the owner of the Owlery was surprised. The close proximity to an eatery was an essential for us as my wife is recovering from an operation and has limited mobility. This was one of the reasons we booked The Owlery and I am sure Jacqui was just as disappointed as we were. The property gives good access to walks in the countryside which I an my two dogs took advantage of.
