Well...where do we start?  We have had a truly amazing stay here at Amber Cottage, the most beautiful and peaceful holiday cottage we've stayed in over the years.  Fabulous gardens, a plethora of wildlife (we saw deer, hares many birds including the woodpecker!) and the big winner ….stargazing in the Pod, spotting Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and loads of shooting stars.  Thank you so much we will be back.

in the Amber and Topaz Cottages.  We made lots of fun memories in the East Riding celebrating my Mother (from the U.S.A.) and her sister (from England) 90th Birthday!  What a good trip and lovely place to stay.

Two generations in Amber Cottage 5th May

"We booked Amber Cottage together with Topaz to spend a week with the three generations of our family.  We have loved every minute, despite generally rubbish weather!  Highly recommend Betton Farm for lunch and great outdoor play area/small farm animal area for the kids to enjoy.  The children loved pond dipping in the garden.  We will be back.  Thank you for a relaxing week."

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Amber Cottage - Thank You!

We have had a great week in your excellent cottage, everything 3 generations together needed. Loved the Pod and beautiful gardens. Just a shame we didn't pick a better week weatherwise, but we made the best of it. Super ride on North Yorks Moors Railway followed by fantastic fish & chips in Pickering. Thank you for all your help.

Thank you Richard & Heather for an absolutely wonderful cottage, no need to bring anything next time. What a place, so peaceful. We could live here for the rest of our lives, and we thank you for all the information in Amber Cottage file, we could go on and on about the place so one more time thank you both. (Hope to see you next year!)
