Excellent all round. Nothing else to add really. Hope to be back soon!

Mr Martin C,

We had such a wonderful time in your beautiful cottage! Waking up to a lovely sunny New Year's Day! Hoping to return soon! Thank you very much.

Past Customer,

What a magical place to spend Christmas. When we arrived I felt quite emotional as the little cottage looked so festive with a tree and decorations. The fresh flowers lovely too! It was all warm and cosy ready for us. Mark and Moya are perfect hosts, very kind and helpful. We will definitely return to do the NYMR in the spring. Thanks for our prezzies! and thanks for a lovely Christmas. *Trenchers Fish and chips fabulous!*

Past Customer,

A magical place to stay especially at Christmas! From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed & comfortable. The owner was helpful with directions & purchasing pork pies for us from the local butcher. The Nook is small but absolutely perfectly formed, just brilliant for 2 of us. A lovely deep bath with added bath bombs was a real treat. The bed was so comfortable with really good quality bed linen, duvet & pillows, a good nights sleep is essential when staying away from home & we definitely had that. Very pretty festive decorations made us feel really at home & with the log burner on it was almost magical over the Christmas period. The views are stunning, nothing else could describe it! You could sit for hours just relaxing & looking. A tin of fat balls for the birds is a nice touch, we thoroughly enjoyed watching the little Robins. Everything you need is there, no need to worry about a thing. Nice cosy rugs to wrap up in, plenty of good quality pans, baking tins, plates, glasses etc, tea, coffee etc it’s all there. The dishwasher a bonus at Christmas, love it. We really can’t thank the owners enough. We had a lovely Christmas, we had a lovely stay. We will definitely return. We highly recommend this little slice of paradise

Past Customer,

We had a wonderful break at Postgate Nook. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Loved the character of the place, the wood burning stove and beautiful views across the valley. Lovely to see so many stars in the dark skies and watch the livestock being taken out to the fields as well as the birds singing away in the morning. Highly recommended for a peaceful break. We spent most days walking in the beautiful countryside. The cottage has lots of small touches that really make a difference. Thanks Moyà & Mark. All in all a restorative break.

Past Customer,

Lovely week. We have so enjoyed exploring the dale and moors direct from the front door. Great butchers within walking distance (closes 12.30pm on Saturday). How cool to have a postbox just opposite. Exploring Whitby well worthwhile - recommend the church just below the Abbey. Most unusual. Also had a good day out at Castle Howard (via Blakey Ridge). Comfortable and quiet here. Thank you Mark and Moya and the adventurous sister. All the best K&K

Past Customer,

This was a lovely cottage in a stunning location. The cottage was comfortable and clean with lots of little extras that made it even more special

Past Customer,

Thanks for a great week, lovely cottage, walks and weather!

Past Customer,

What can we say? The most beautiful, calming and peaceful retreat - the perfect "switch-off" holiday! We have loved exploring the local area (and recommend in particular the bridleway route into Glaisdale, the steam train from Grosmont to Goathland, all the little walks around Goathland, and of course the 199 steps up to Whitby Abbey - so atmospheric!). Having said that, we've also loved just sitting in the garden reading and watching the birds - such a pleasure. Mark and Moya (and Moya's sister!) made us feel like friends and we can't thank you enough for making the week so enjoyable for us. We will be back again! xxx

Past Customer,

This property is just right for romantic couples of any age looking for a quiet space to 'catch their breath' away from busy lives. It is clean and well equipped and the hosts are warm and welcoming without being intrusive. Lovely views, accessible footpaths and 'big skies' complete the picture.

Past Customer,

We felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay. The cottage is just right for two people who want a bit of peace and quiet.

Past Customer,

Postgate Nook is a first class place to stay - fantastic location, lovely accommodation, lovely owners! Couldn't ask for more - thanks! A true home from home - exceptionally clean and comfortable!

Mr Martin C,

A fantastic place to stay! Felt comfortable and welcome as soon as I arrived. So peaceful and calm! I had plans to "go places" but failed to do so as was just so happy to stay here and enjoy the quietness. I will be back!!! :-)

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.
