Coach House Comments
Here are the latest comments – October 2012 Wow! What an amazing cottage! We all had a truly fantastic stay. You really have thought of everything, from tea lights to luxurious bedding to logs for the fire….I have been looking at your cottages online for about 3 years and have finally saved up to come for our 21st wedding anniversary and it fulfilled all my dreams. …The children loved using the trampoline and the full use of your beautiful gardens as they used the torches here to search for hedgehogs and moles. Thank you so much for everything. We will definitely be back. September 2012 Our third visit and as good as ever cottage. A real home from home. In fact better than home…. Hope to see you next year. September 2012 Gorgeous cottage with a lovely welcome of yummy treats. Had a great holiday…so much to do. Kids really enjoyed the trampoline and the garden. Thanks so much. September 2012 Delighted with the Coach House and the marvellous facilities plus Noelle’s little extras especially ‘high tea’ and home made bread. A wonderful reception on our arrival plus ‘extra’ conversations during the week…. September 2012 Our fourth visit. Yet again everything was perfect….We’ve had a lovely holiday thank you very much. August 2012 What a wonderful place, both the cottage and the area. The cottage is perfection. Everything we wanted and more. Thank you Tim and Noelle to all your extra effort in making this such a special place to be… We visited lots of places and it was lovely to return here every evening. We would love to join the crowd of repeat visitors to the Coach House and hope to return as soon as we can… We expect you to enjoy the Coach House and will work to orientate you in this lovely area if you wish. In the summer we found out about quoits matches that would be good to visit – the locals hurl huge iron rings 25 yards onto an iron peg set deep into a square of clay. It's an unusual sight which is to be seen in the north east but especially on the Moors and Dales. We directed other guests to fishing trips from Whitby and yet others to drives round the Moors and villages taking into account the poor mobility of one of their party. Horseriding opportunities, photographic locations and entertainment for younger people have been the foundation of print outs and later items for the itineraries on the website. We enjoy pointing guests towards some of the excellent eating places in the area and also high quality food shopping. While parents relax in the cottage garden the younger people can work off excess energy on the trampoline. During the late spring and summer the grasses and wildflowers grow up and we mow paths around the paddock to explore and hide. The ‘bendy house’ of woven willow is a private place to hide away and watch the sky through a ceiling of leaves for both large and small people. The trees at the top of the garden are a more natural habitat for a variety of wildlife, we had a hare’s ‘form’ a young owl in the trees getting used to flying and plenty of pheasant and a few rabbits. We encourage you to sit quietly in the hide to watch the larger residents but we need to be a little discrete. The cottage has its own drive and parking area as well as a hut for safe bike storage. The Coach House has all the usual characteritics of one of Noelle’s Cottages. Old bits and modern facilities. High quality beds and bedding on the double and two singles - which can be made into a double if you let Noelle know in time. The comfortable sitting room has a woodburning stove, original artwork and photographs, some books and DVD’s and underfloor heating. There are antiques in most rooms particularly in the dining room. Noelle sat at the dining table exchanging secrets with her ever more ancient Dutch granny. The kitchen is modern and equipped to a high standard. “You have thought of everything’ There is fast and free Wi-fi and a landline until we can fix a VOIP phone. We have fitted it out to a standard we would like to find on our holidays but sometimes don’t. It’s likely you will enjoy your stay and want to return. Your welcome will be even warmer!
