Really lovely property would highly recommend. Owners have thought of everything which if and when we go back we know we won't have to take certain things. Property is great with kids as had some toys and a little play area upstairs. It's also a proper sized fridge/freezer not the tiny little freezer compartment if you are taking pre frozen food for babies etc. There are also maps and walking books available to use. Main tip would be the pub that is about 30secs walk away is often fully booked for Friday and Saturday nights. But next village were able to accommodate at short notice.

Mrs Emma P,

Well equipped great location for walking and travelling by train

Past Customer,

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage - it really does have everything you need. The toys, books and computer games were a massive hit with all 3 of my children. The beds were really comfy and the rooms beautifully set out. The puzzles were also well enjoyed by our son and Granny. We visited some lovely places throughout our break with highlights being NYMR, Lealholm (Yammy cakes!) and Hutton-le-Hole, esp the Rydale Museum and 'The Barn' for a try Yorkshire afternoon tea :) Many Thanks

Previous Customer,

Had a wonderful time in this excellent cottage. A good break from working. the facilities are excellent and thorough. We did very good walks in many directions from here. The local pub's Sunday lunch is good and available for a long period. Did the excellent tidal walk from Sandsend to Whitby (return). The reference books were a great help. Many thanks for a superb break!

Previous Customer,

Felt I could stay another few weeks. The house grew on me in terms of quiet and relaxation. You have created a cosy modern dwelling which I enjoyed very much. Family & friends came to visit and stay - felt a bit like the queen! Weather absolutely superb what was an added bonus. we know Yorkshire very well but this area is not very well known to us bar Grosmont due to "puffers". Explored, stretched, walked and enjoyed your very comfortable settees. Thank you for the comfort of your home.

Previous Customer,

Enjoyed our stay i this lovely cottage. It has everything you could possibly need. The local butcher does fantastic sausage & bacon. We walked to Lealholm, went through Dalby forest which was beautiful. The cycle from Robin Hoods Bay to Ravenscar along the cinder path was exhilarating. May partner liked the cycle back. "All Down Hill". It really is a Home from Home. xx

Judith & J,

Absolutely lovely cottage. Facilities and location both wonderful - everything we needed and more. Cracking walks and runs over the moors - we even did the last leg of the coast to coast from the back door to Robin Hood's Bay. Sandsend Beach great for littles. Robin Hood's Bay and Boggle Hole wonderful for rock pooling - check out the cafe at Youth Hostel at Boggle Hole too - roaring fire and cracking location warm or cold out. Hutton-le-Hole was lovely for the annual duck race and the museum was a treat for 66 year old Nana and 3 1/2 year old Poppy. 18-19 year old 'Big Children' appreciated the friendly local pub!! - The Arncliff Arms. All in all so many lovely things to see and do here and this cottage is the perfect Home from Home. Lots of love

Previous Customer,

We enjoyed a glorious Bank Holiday here at Hillrise. The local countryside has looked stunning. We caught up on some maintenance jobs, but also had time to enjoy visiting Runswick Bay. Afternoon tea (tea and cake) as a take away from the cafe at Runswick Bay was greatly enjoyed while sat on the beach. Also worth a visit is the River View Gardens at Sleights, where there is a cafe, putting and crquet to do, a gorgeous plant nursery and lovely gardens to enjoy. (Open April - October, cash only). We look forward to coming up soon.

Previous Customer,

Enjoyed another fabulous weekend here at Hillrise. It looked really magical here, as it was a very snowy period. The views were amazing and we enjoyed some sledging in the field opposite our house. .... Whilst staying, not only did we celebrate Christopher's birthday but we caught up on a few minor jobs. the produce used for the welcome pack is delicious. The fresh items are from the village shop and ford's Butchers in Glaisdale. The meat is particularly good there and so are the pork pies! We also enjoyed an excellent meal ta Magpie Cafe in Whitby - pricey but worth it. Until the next time

Previous Customer,

We have had a gallant stay. The cottage is beautiful inside and out with incredible views and fantastic facilities. We did a 13km ramble and went kayaking in Ruswarp. Whitby was a lovely seaside day out. So easy to get about on the train. BBQ in garden was joyous Brilliant stay, thank you.

Previous Customer

What a great place! Fabulous countryside and lovely coastal places to visit . We have had a lovely holiday exploring new places. The cottage has everything we needed. The boys loved the games and i the peacefulness.The weather has been great and its lovely seeing the snowdrops and daffodils in the sunshine in and around the village and enjoyed lunches at the Horseshoe. Thank you for letting us discover this great area and staying in your lovely house.

Area Information

Glaisdale is a pretty village located between the villages of Lealholm and Egton Bridge and only eight miles from Whitby. It lies on the national hiking trail the Esk Valley walk and the bluebell woods in the area are great for walks on an evening. In the 19th Century Glaisdale was an ironstone-mining village recognised by its terraces of slate roof houses. Set at the foot of the dale, in beautiful surroundings,  it has great local amenities with a host of shops, pubs and cafes. Fly-fishing is available on the river Esk and there are lots of great visitors attractions in the area, especially in the nearby town of Whitby. The lovely beggars bridge in the village is said to have been built by the son of a farmer, Thomas Ferries in 1619. Thomas was considered too poor to marry his young lady, Agnes and so went to sea to earn his fortune. Due to a flood, Thomas was unable to cross the river to kiss Agnes goodbye and so upon his return from sea he married Agnes and built the bridge.
