Date of Stay : March 2012 Brackenedge is a gem, so glad I fount it, a perfect place to stay for family members who had travelled for my daughter's wedding at Danby Castle. The wedding was fantastic, we were so fortunate with the weather, it ended up being like a summer wedding, such a lovely venue and setting. Some guests had travelled from Italy and I really wanted their stay to be something special. It was and more, with room for people to be together but still have space. A beautiful garden with fabulous views, perfect for wedding photos. Everything about Brackenedge was great, with every facility that could possibly be needed and everything was of a very high standard and quality. Perfect, thank you so much.

An excellent large property in a lovely location The Raines, Lancashire Review Submitted: May 16, 2009 Date of Stay: March 2009 We booked Brackenedge on very short notice, after we were let down by another property owner, but had a lovely stay. We were a large party(six adults and three children), but at no point did we feel crowded or uncomfortable.
The railway station, from which you can get to Whitby, is just ashort walk away and the National Moors Centre is well worth a visit.
You take your chances with the weather in this part of the world,but the real fire makes this house a warm sanctuary on cold or wetevenings.
Long Weekend : 7th - 10th Aug Newcastle Party Newcastle Review Submitted: August 19, 2009 Date of Stay: August 2009 This house is massive. It's hard to believe when looking at thepictures on the website but out party consisted of 6 adults and 6children and at NO time did I feel as though we were on top of eachother. All of the rooms are really spacious and the Garden was greatfor the both kids activities and adult relaxation, not at the same timethough.
The property was really clean and well maintained, the facilitieswere excellent with large plasma TV's in all communal rooms. I wouldhave no hesitation recommending this property to either families withyoung children or groups of adults. My party had a really good time andwill be looking to book again for next year.
What a lovely stay Lois2 Lincs Review Submitted: April 19, 2009 Date of Stay: April 2009 I think we were the first family to stay at this cottage. It is absolutely huge! so much space, made it very easy staying with othercouples & their children. All very clean, nice linen etc., fullcountry experience staying there with the fires and everything. Villages lovely, good pubs, and lots to do in local area. Whitby and Saltburnboth very nice and easy to drive there for the day. Would definitelyrecommend this cottage.
