Stunning views, comfortable beds, quiet location, A very well equipped and thought out property with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Joe and Geoff really have thought of everything and the information they provide on local things to see and do and dog welcoming restaurants and cafes was fantastic. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough.
We had a lovely short stay at Cowslip Retreat in March 2020. The accommodation was immaculate and the owner, Geoff, very helpful. Everything was provided including a grand hamper. upon arrival. The village centre is only a few minutes walk away with a nice pub, a general store, a fantastic butchers and a good bakery. Whitby is only ten minutes away by car or, better still, a lovely 2 hour walk. We will be returning.
We came to Ewelands Retreat with our Lurcher dog Poppy it was her first holiday with us at the sea. We picked a gem with this property it is situated ideally between moor and sea. The weather was perfect for March after all the rain we have had and so was able to get out every day. We visited Whitby, Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay, Runswick Bay , walked around Sleights, enjoyed a lovely meal at the Plough pub.We loved the welcome hamper plus lovely warm freshly baked bread. Geoff welcomed us and made us feel at home..First class accommodation with fantastic views. Poppy has absolutely loved it and ...more
Amazing cottage! Stylishly decorated & furnished, Cowslip Cottage is probably the best equipped one we’ve ever stayed in, the owners have literally thought of everything you might need to make your stay perfect. The addition of freshly baked bread, a welcome hamper with goodies & a bottle of champagne for NY was a very special touch. There was also a welcome hamper for the dog! The cottage was very well located for the local friendly pub & other amenities. Only downside for us was our cottage had no garden area to toilet our dog, so we’d have to take her out across the road to the grass area (...more
Excellent property - great location - super views! The cottage has everything you could wish for. Admittedly the bedrooms upstairs are on the small side but the quality of the home is so worth it. We have visited during the winter both times and couldn't wish for somewhere more comfortable and cosy. We would definitely return and cannot recommend highly enough.
