Dear Liz and Danny. What an amazing hidden gem in the middle of the North York Moors, we were very spoilt here in the ‘luxurious barn’ with the best views of the area! Especially for our first visit to this area of England this was spectacular. With the little girls real sightseeing was quite challenging, but we still managed to get a taste of the area: Saltburn (our only rainy day – unfortunately no mini railway, but we did travel the old original cliff funicular tram. Whitby, (the stones collected ensured several hours of kiddie fun), The Danby Show ( very lovely sunny day and unique experience for us ‘city people’:-) Helmsley and the walled gardens and best of all, the fun in and around the house (the toy shop that the kids loved, the walks into the heather, the great views, the cloud formations, the different comfy seats around the cottage and all the food – too many cakes, sones etc, etc! feeding the doves etc, etc. And then I nearly forget our great dinner date night at The Eskdale (their lemon Posset dessert is divine!) Thank you for the hospitality and for making this home so comfortable ( all little details and beautiful design/lighting etc was appreciated!)
