A very beautiful settlement. Cozy rooms and very house warming accessories. Absolutely lovely scenery and amazing little creatures to catch a glimpse of every now and then which is always fascinating! I personally have enjoyed fresh air and the gorgeous places to read a book. I love how vintage it is . D

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.

We've stayed in lots of Holiday Cottages over the years, but this one is way up there with the very best. How Richard & Heather have created and maintained this beautiful oasis in such a peaceful location is beyond us - maybe there is a secret army of gnomes somewhere who emerge when we are out. More likely it's down to talent and hard work. It really is very impressive. All that remains to be said is THANK YOU!!!

Great review posted on Facebook too! Guests from Nuttall

We have enjoyed our stay at Opal Cottage and the wonderful gardens. We have been to Whitby, Filey and Scarborough. We would recommend Filey for beachy days. We also went to Dalby Forest and hired bikes as well as playing golf at Sawdon Pines. We have had a lovely time at this blissful retreat. Thank you.

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.
