Thank you for the Prosecco and cake, lovely touches - we will definitely recommend.


We had a super week based in Dale View Barn which is a stunning property beautifully converted, furnished and cosy. The location is ideally located so that we were able to visit Nunnington and Ormesby Manor Houses, Whitby, Scarborough and the lovely village of Staithes. We also managed a visit to Eden Camp Museum which had us enthralled with the...


Dear Liz and Danny. Many thanks for such a wonderful time in the most beautiful setting EVER. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this stunning cottage. Being a permanent wheelchair user I have found it very suitable for accessibility we will definitely be back. Thank you once again.


Thank you for a wonderful stay. The views are so stunning and we loved having breakfast outside by the BBQ overlooking the Dale. We had a great time boating at Ruswarp, and a delicious meal at 'Bridge Cottage Bistro' Sandsend. The walled garden at Helmsley was spectacular and the cafe serves excellent food. Great pub food at Sinnington the Fox and Hounds....


Many thanks Liz and Danny for a smashing stay at Beacon view. Beautiful surroundings, terrific accommodation and wonderful warm and friendly welcome. We had a great time and look forward to returning. PS George and Jess said they'd like to come back too (woof woof) PPS The only improvement would be to have greeted by the sound of the ukulele!


Everything we could possibly need ; thank you.  We have had a very busy week, there is so much to do. A trip to Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Saltburn. Amazing waves in Saltburn, great watching the surfers. The highlight for our grand daughter has been the Moors Centre and the climbing wall, and the steam train at Grosmont, and afternoon tea in the village. We...

Dear Liz and Danny. Thank you for a wonderful stay in your amazing 5* Beacon View.  Few trips in life are as good as they look in the pictures, Beacon View was even better. Thank you again, we hope we will be able to visit again in the future.    Wiltshire

Dale View Barn April 2018

We've had a lovely few days staying here just the two of us. The barn couldn't have been more comfortable and well equipped, and thank you Liz for making us so welcome. We went on a great walk from the Cicerone North York Moors book, which goes practically past the door, and a great day out in Whitby with fish and chips on the beach. We're very sad to have...

Dale View Barn March 2018

Lovely week in a stunning property - beautifully converted and furnished and warm! Utility room is a real bonus.  Lucky week with the weather and able to get lots of walking, muddy in the woods but generally fine. Spring is late this year and daffodils not out in Farndale yet but should be good after Easter. The recently opened cliff edge section of the...

Dale View Barn February 2018

Thank you Liz and Danny for a lovely weekend away.  The house was so cosy and well equipped and we enjoyed relaxing by the fire in the evenings.  We enjoyed a fab pub lunch and watched the rugby at the Fox and Hounds pub.  The sprinkling os snow made everything even more beautiful.  Thanks again.  Group of friends from  Lincolnshire.

Beacon View Barn February 2018

Dear Liz and Danny.  We have had a fantastic week in your barn, thank you!  A great place for a big family with three small children and a dog! Plenty to entertain the kids in a safe (i.e. childproof) house.  Dalby Forest is a great place to visit when it is too cold and windy on the moors although we got out on shorter walks even in the hail and sleet....

Beacon View Barn January 2018

We have had a wonderful few days in this gorgeous barn! Lots of space for 6 adults, yet warm and cosy. A real home from home! Runswick Bay, Whitby, York - and lots of lovely walks straight from the barn. A lovely birthday celebration! Thanks for the cake and fizz - infact, thank you for everything - 5 stars! 🙂 Oxford

Beacon View Barn January 2018

Dear Liz and Danny,  Once again Crag House Farm has proved to be the perfect venue for unwinding and meeting up with old friends.  Despite inclement weather, we managed a number of memorable walks, not least to the newly installed 'Man on the Hill' sculpture.  It was always good to return to the snug and luxurious comforts of the Barn.  With our thanks and...

Beacon View Barn September 2017

Our stay has been everything we had hoped for – thank you for all your help. We've enjoyed some outstanding walks in Ainthorpe, Farndale and around Gregory’s Minster in Kirkdale which is worth seeking out. A particular highlight was a quick afternoon stroll up to the ‘seated man’ just over the road affording excellent views towards Roseberry all from our...

It was so kind of you to have a bottle of bubbly and to collect a cake for my birthday. The boys also loved the Halloween decorations and chocolate!

PS Thanks also for letting the boys feed...

Beacon View Barn August 2017

Dear Liz and Danny. Thank you for having us all at Beacon View Cottage.  We have had a lovely time enjoying numerous trips to Whitby for ‘fish and chips’. Rock pooling at Saltburn and Robin Hood’s Bay,  Luke caught fish, crabs, Hermit crabs, shrimps and snails. A trip to Scarborough’s  Sea Life Centre was also a hit! Meals at The Fox and Hounds, Ainthorpe...
