Heather View May 2019

The Intrepid Travellers have hit a "home run" with Crag House! What a lovely place for a group! This may be our best trip ever - and we definitely want to return! Thanks for the raising of the American flag - a very thoughtful touch (also perhaps warning your neighbours of the jolly Americans!) This is a gorgeous little piece of the world - thank you for...

Beacon View Barn Easter April 2019

We loved it here: the beds are comfortable, the house is clean, everything works and is generous and in good order. We loved the games, we loved the wonderful views, the space of the barn. I would recommend this to any of our friends and would love to come back again. It was a wonderful treat - we are very lucky - Thank you

Beacon View Barn April 2019

Another amazing week at Crag House Farm. We've had a wonderful time re-visiting old haunts & discovering brand new places. But the real treat is coming back to Beacon View, where everything we could want (even those we hadn't thought of) is here. Thank you again Liz and Danny for being such wonderful hosts (even after the toilet door incident!) - we'll be...

Beacon View Barn April 2019

A wonderful week here in your stunning barn. We have managed to enjoy so much of the North Yorkshire coastline only a stones throw from the beautiful moors too! We couldn't fault a thing, you have thought of everything a family might need and more. Thank you for your kindness during our stay we will return to Oxfordshire with happy children and an...

Easter Dale View Barn April 2019

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We have had a wonderful weekend in this beautiful barn. We all loved the disco lights in the toilet and the Easter chocolates half way up the stairs. We all enjoyed watching the moon come up from behind the hills and having a BBQ.

Dale View Barn April 2019

We have had a brilliant week staying in this beautiful, spotless and well equipped barn and exploring the North York Moors. I have just sat outside in the 7am sunshine with my coffee enjoying the view of the sun rising over the dale while listening to the birds - so peaceful. Highlights from a busy week have included: ●Fossil hunting in Runswick Bay and...

Dale View Barn April 2019

We have had a wonderful week with our daughter and two very young grandsons. Not much walking! But we really enjoyed Robin Hood's Bay and exploring this beautiful area. Castle Howard was a terrific day out. Huge thanks and we hope to return.

Beacon View Barn April 2019

A lovely relaxing break caught up on some reading and enjoyed some gentle walks - who wants to leave the delightful view??? Lovely conversion, well equipped and immaculate! The finishing touches make the place as did the several seasons in one day weather - Lovely!!

Beacon View Barn March 2019

Dear Liz and Danny. What  a wonderful place you have created, just the place to relax and recoup. Everything is so stylish and yet has an air of welcome, come in, relax and be happy. We have visited many places, Staithes very pretty, Whitby always to have their famous fish and chips. Shopped at the Pickering marketing & bought some lovely Yorkshire cheeses...

Beacon View Barn February 2019

This is the most special place: Fabulously equipped down to every last detail and the most beautiful spot. I could spend another whole week here without exhausting my rapture when I step out of the barn into the wonders that await me every morning. I have been reading 'Thinking on my feet' by Kate Humble. It tells the story of walking in a different part...

Dale View Barn February 2019

Dear Liz and Danny. What an amazing renovation in a lovely location - it's given us ideas for our own little cottage project. Thank you for thinking of everything one could possibly need and more - the bubbly and cake were much appreciated. We enjoyed the walk from Great Ayton to Capt. Cook's Monument and Roseberry Topping - the Velveteen Rabbit Luncheon...

Beacon View Barn January 2019

Amazing Birthday Break in snowy January it looked beautiful. Beacon View is so cosy with a woodfire and underfloor heating no chance of us being cold! Sam and I fell in love with Crag House Farm and will definitely be coming back later in the year. Thank you for all your help and we will see you soon!

Beacon View Barn January 2019

As owners of a giant breed dog it's an honour to be allowed to stay at Beacon View. Our Pyrenean Mountain Dog particularly enjoyed his dinner in the outside barn whilst supervising the sheep. He is well travelled and this is in the top 3 'stays' in England.  Liz and Danny could not have been more welcoming and friendly and we will return with family in the...

Beacon View Barn December 2018

Dear Liz and Danny.  The most perfect break in a long time. The recharge that was sought. The place to rest that sets the bar. The landscape that you don't want to leave. Thank you!

Beacon View Barn November 2018

Dear Liz and Danny.  Thank you so much for another fantastic week in your beautiful barn. This is our fourth time now and it really is starting to feel like a second home! The boys have had an amazing week and don't want to leave.  We have packed a lot in - lovely walks to the Moors National Park Centre and the Cycle Hub.  Whitby Abbey illuminated on...

Beacon View Barn October 2018

Yearly gathering of old friends, from all over, Birmingham, Leicestershire, Cumbria, Worcestershire and Northumberland. Had the pleasure of occupying the barns. Beautiful, homely accommodation in stunning setting. Just what we needed to relax and reboot our batteries. During our week, we only had reason to venture out once for supplies. Lovely walks all...

Dale View Barn September 2018

It's always a gamble coming back to a place where you have experienced a wonderful holiday 〰️ but our second visit to Dale View hasn't disappointed at all! Same lovely welcome, same fabulous accommodation and the same attention to little details that we appreciated so much last time. Our friends from Oz particularly appreciated the hoisting of the...

Beacon View Barn September 2018

Dear Liz and Danny. Many thanks for allowing us to stay in your wonderful barn. Beacon View is by far the best holiday let we have stayed in and you could not ask for a more picturesque setting. Our first visit to the area but we will definitely be back. Highlights were Staithes, Helmsley, Hutton le Hole and the Cliff Tramway at Saltburn. George will miss...


We have had the most relaxing week here in Beacon View! a beautifully appointed cottage, it has everything we needed for the week with fantastic enclosed garden space and spectacular views. We particularly enjoyed Runswick Bay as a beach with good facilities, perfect sand for the children and a chance to search for fossils! The North York Moors Centre in...


Thank you so much Liz and Danny for allowing us to share your beautiful barn and views. We've had an amazing time, loved every minute. The barn itself is fantastic - we go away to a lot of barns and lodges all over England and Wales - this is the best we have ever stayed in, just really don't want to leave. The views are amazing and loved seeing the...


Wonderful, idyllic setting for our summer holiday. Thank you so much Liz and Danny for making us feel so welcome; the girls loved feeding the doves!  We would highly recommend Dalby Forest (thank you for the car park pass) and the birds of prey centre in Thirsk - a bit of a drive but well worth it to spend half a day. Thank you again!


This was a little different to our normal family holidays, but was one of our favourites.The first time we have been on holiday with our dog Max and he also thoroughly enjoyed it. We went on lots of walks such as Helmsley to Rievaulx Abbey and back. Great Ayton to and up Roseberry Topping then down and round Captain Cooks Monument.  Runswick Bay to...


A very special place to spend our 1st wedding anniversary, and a beautiful, warm, friendly welcome back from Liz and Danny. The cottage is a dream and the setting idyllic. Thanks for welcoming Muffin too.


What a lovely relaxing place, just felt calm as soon as I got here. What a view and only the sounds are sheep and birds. The cottage is a delight and has been great for our disabled person who has enjoyed the stay very much.The dog (Zander) has loved the garden and we enjoyed having breakfast outside at the beginning of the holiday. Enjoyed several pubs,...
