  • “Mistal Cottage is a home from home ...”
    Mistal Cottage is a home from home especially for us as a farming family?! The accommodation is beautifully decorated and has everything you could need to self cater whilst on holiday. The photos don't do it justice! It is well located to visit York,Scarborough and the North Yorkshire Moors. The Carlton Inn is a must for Sunday lunch! I would recommend this property to anyone. Kate and her family were very welcoming. We had a wonderful week here?! I would like to think we'll be back again one ...

The property

Husthwaite 1.6 miles.

A superb stone barn conversion, adjoining the owner's property, within the confines of a working farm.

Beautifully finished, with high-quality fittings, the property is perfectly placed to enjoy the Dales, the North York Moors and the wonderful historic city of York.

With all ground floor accommodation, there is a spacious open plan living area, with exposed timbers in the high pitched roof and a cosy woodburning stove, set within a feature brick fireplace.

The barn has a contemporary feel throughout; the flooring is polished limestone with the added benefit of luxurious underfloor heating.

The modern well-equipped kitchen has granite worktops, a Belfast sink and a large American fridge/freezer.

Large windows throw in plenty of light, whilst patio doors open onto the communal lawned garden.

With great attention to detail, there is a bedroom leading off each end of the living area, one with an impressive wet room and the other with a well-appointed bathroom.

The surrounding area is ideal walking and cycling country, with the pretty market towns of Thirsk and Easingwold are just a few minutes’ drive.

A trip to the spa town of Harrogate is within easy reach, as is the cathedral city of Ripon.

York is an essential part of any itinerary, with many attractions, including the Jorvik Viking Centre, the National Railway Museum and the famous Minster.

Walk the medieval walls, or the more energetic may like to climb the tower in the Minster for a spectacular vista of the city.

With countryside and towns to explore, this lovely barn conversion provides an excellent base.

About the location


Easingwold 3 miles; Thirsk 6 miles; York 17 miles.

The small historic village of Husthwaite lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, overlooking the Vale of York. Picturesque and peaceful, the village is a perfect introduction to "Herriot Country", a beautiful old Norman church, many fine old houses and an active village hall hosting many events throughout the year. The nearby White Horse of Kilburn, cut out of the hillside in 1857, is a prominent local landmark. The lovely market town of Easingwold is nearby, boasting a pretty market square and a good selection of shops, pubs and cafes, whilst York with its famous Minster, medieval walls and Jorvik Viking Centre, is a short drive away. The Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors and Coast are also within easy touring distance and are rich in stately homes and National Trust attractions - Harewood House and Castle Howard are just two of several within an hour's drive.
