Some guest reviews

Here are some recent comments from guests...

"This is our fourth visit to Damson Croft, which speaks for itself. The garden and wildlife is wonderful to wake up to, as is the sound of sheep: lovely."

Mrs R   June 2021

" A wonderful little cottage in a beautiful location. The children loved playing in the garden and feeding the chickens. Lots of different birds and insects to spot and we enjoyed seeing a hedgehog trotting up and down the lawn in the evenings. Lastingham is a beautiful little village and well situated for many lovely day trips and local adventures. Owners are very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We’ll be booking again another year."

"Damson Croft is in a lovely spot, the cottage is located in the owners garden which is large and beautiful, full of adventure for kids and quiet spots for adults. The cottage itself has everything you could need for a break. Highly recommended."

"We can't begin to tell you what an excellent time we had at Damson Croft and the area. The cottage exceeded our expectations in all respects. We found it to be very clean and very comfortable. The setting and garden are perfect. The area is beautiful and we walked on the super paths and moorland tracks every day. We intend to return soon."
