Sorry, should add all the cottages are differently furnished inside and have 2 or 3 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, bathroom, terrace etc. There are playgrounds too.

Captain cooks haven in Whitby is great. I think they are individually owned holiday cottages, mainly managed by Hoseasons. Or Haven? They have a shared pool. We have been three times and loved it. Not too expensive.

Thanks. Suspect cp abhorring husband would also be snooty about hoeseasons. Will check out holiday lettings.

Have a look through Hoseasons, we found a really reasonable caravan park holiday with them, we went for a platinum caravan which was really nice and it was half the price of CP

Thanks!

CHARLOTTE - have just put the mill house at edstone on hold. Love the pool and tennis court! But it is expensive. Should probably compare to cp just to be sure

Also love the look of the Forest holidays in Cropton but to accommodate all of us we'd need the treehouse which was £1200 for 3 nights!

Love north yorks. We all know it very well and have gp in e yorks

Anyone know anywhere good in the dales as an alternative?

little edstone have a pool but are quite ££ in the school holidays.

eastgate cottages are cheaper. they are in and around pickering, and if you call them, Elaine will find you two next-door properties - I think they have a few. If you get two in Pcikering itself, you can walk to the municipal pool in 5 mins. There's also a steam railway and little play park within 5mins walk, as well as lots of nice cafes.

Forest holidays isn't cheap. By the time you've paid for days out it'll probably work out more than CP.

I only do camping which probably isn't an option at Easter. grin

Forest holidays - Cropton Forest. Silver Birch cabins have a hot tub on the deck. Rangers offer a few activities. Nearby Pickering with steam trains, Castle Howard, Whitby, York. Plenty of cosy pubs for lunch in nearby villages and micro brewery just down the lane.

We love spending Easter in Yorkshire- do it every year with our two children, now aged 2 and 4. I can really reveling Bottoms Farm near Oakworth. Lovely walking and great accommodation in 3 small adjacent barn conversions. Last year the weather was super nosy and we still found lots to do- a day in York, steam railway, eureka children's museum in Halifax and skipton castle were favourites but when the weathers fine the walking is amazing. We have enjoyed center Parcs but would recommend that part of Yorkshire any day if the week.

Anyone have any recomendations? Kids would love CP, but above budget and DH scarred having visited pre kids.

Anyone have any cottages that they've liked? Even better if there is a swimming pool onsite or nearby. Could be one large cottage (to sleep 9) or two adjacent properties.
