A very nice cottage in a lovely location. The cottage is well positioned near to the North Yorkshire Moors and coastline. The owners Mary and Arthur were very friendly, helpful and keen to help you enjoy your stay. We must not forget their dog Bill who did a wonderful job entertaining and tiring out our grandson!

Very comfortable and relaxing.

Reviewed by David, 14th June 2019

Bilbo's Barn was all we could have wished for and more. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable, and has everything you could ever need. It's well situated, about 4 miles from Pickering on the Scarborough road. We were very impressed by the grounds of the farm - everywhere is immaculate with not a blade of grass out of place! Although it's on a main roRead moread (which you can't see but can hear) you can hardly hear it inside and we slept like logs every night. Would definitely recommend. Hide
