We stayed at Fox cub cottage . The cottage was very modern and up to date , wi-fi , flatscreen TV etc . All mod cons you will need .
Adrian the host was very accommodating even leaving is some milk and a fresh cake on arrival. The cottage is easy to find from the main road , but secluded enough to have plenty of peace and quiet.
Ideally situated next to Dalby forest . We loved staying here and will be booking again later in the year . 10/10’

Fantastic week at Sleepy Fox. Adrian is a wonderful host nothing too much trouble. Personal touches and a lovely cake , tea,coffee & milk provided on arrival.
The cottage is one of three set around a lovely courtyard, great spot to sit & relax. It is beautifully appointed , really comfy bed and all the comforts of home. , In a perfect place to explore coast or countryside.
Food very good at pub next door with friendly staff. ( welcomes dogs)
Booked to return in October, can’t wait.!

We stayed here with our dog in little fox cottage and had a great time. I was initially sceptical about being a bit far out of Pickering but in reality the location was ideal. There is a path directly to Dalby Forest and a walk there can easily use up a whole day.
The pub next door was dog (and people) friendly with great food and Pickering is only a few mins away by car.
The cottage was spotless and well equipped with everything needed for that home away from home feel. Adrian was as friendly and welcoming as the other reviews suggest and yes, there was a cake!
I would happily recommend F&R Cottages to any couples looking for a nice relaxing getaway.

We have just arrived back home from a 3 night stay with our caravan and we cannot express enough how beautiful and relaxing this place was, very clean and well maintained. Adrian the owner greeted us upon arrival and was so lovely and friendly, he was on site and very approachable should you have a problem, not that we had any issues. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back again soon.
Thank you so much Adrian

We stayed at sleepy fox cottage for 2 nights over the Easter break. The journey in through Pickering was scenic and the cottage was just a few miles out of town. We arrived earlier than the check in time and treated ourselves to a glass of wine at the pub right next door. Yes and I mean right next door!! At check in time we were greeted by Adrian, we were shown around the cottage and Adrian even had a cake out for our arrival. Such a nice touch. The cottage was perfect, extremely clean and had all the amenities you needed. The surrounding courtyard was such a great space for our dogs 🐕 too. Dalby forest was a 3 minute drive from the cottage and whitby only 30 minutes away so the location was just perfect. We shall most certainly be back, maybe with more of the family!

This site was a gem of a find, Central location for exploring,
It was extremely peaceful and relaxing with no road noise.
The private forest access was a real bonus as was having a pub next door
The site owners were very friendly and helpful but respected privacy.
We will definitely be staying here again.

I stayed for three nights in February 2022 and took my friend’s dog along too. The welcome was warm and friendly. The accommodation was very clean, modern and well arranged with all mod cons of a high quality and standard. Everything required for a comfortable stay was provided by the owners of at the Fox & Rabbit. The location was excellent only being a short drive from Whitby which we visited during our stay. The accommodations is nicely tucked away in a quiet location amidst beautiful countryside and near by a delightful pub/restaurant awaits and extends a warm welcome too. Great for taking long walks, a day out to the coast or simply relaxing with a good book or writing a best seller! Highly recommend.

We had a lovely Christmas holiday week in Sleepy Fox, So warm, cosy and snug, didn’t want to leave, the Weather wasn’t great, so we couldn’t appreciate the Beautiful Scenery, so a good excuse to go back again, Adrian was really great and helpful, The Fox and Rabbit pub next door, done very good meals, Looking forward to returning again in 2022 😊
