  • "This is a working sheep farm, so be prepared for a little mud on your car."

    On saying that though it wasn't that bad. We went end of March and considering it a working sheep farm it was quite good. The cottage was warm and clean and well looked after. Would go back again. Thank you.

    The cottage was clean, tidy. lovely and warm. The cottage is in easy reach of Kirbymoorside, Pickering, Helmsley and Thirsk as well as Whitby. My wife and I can thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend it and it was delightful to see the sheep in the meadows first thing in the morning...

  • "This was a very enjoyable stay, with a warm welcome on arrival."

    I would certainly come here again. The location is fantastic, very peaceful with lovely views. The cottage is comfortable and clean, and well equipped, although the white wear is old. The cottage was cold on arrival, and took a while to warm up with the storage heaters. The wood fire is a bonus and very pleasant, but only tends to heat directly in front of it, a good touring centre, with easy access to the main roads.

  • "The cottage felt chilly due to storage heating not on during evening."

    the open fire was very close to settee and not much point as only small area would feel any benifit. The bedding had been good quality but in need of updating. Rooms quite dark and dusty.rather dated.

  • "This is the perfect place for a couple or older family wanting some peace and quiet."

    Set within the owners working farm, this sits as part of a number of small holiday lets. Meadow cottage has access to a shared courtyard, but this is not secure so you will need to keep dogs on leads unless they never leave your side. (Especially given as the farm has sheep and livestock just outside the courtyard. The location is wonderfully quiet and relaxing, with the large window from the lounge looking over a field. Probably not ideal for younger children unless you are using as a base for daily outings but older families will enjoy the relaxing atmosphere . The owners are welcoming and happy to assist if needed and the cottage is clean and comfortable. Most things you would wish for are available and the open fire makes for cosy evenings watching a movie or playing a boardgame.

  • "The cottage was really cosy and comfortable."

    It was very clean and had all the equipment needed for a self-catering stay. The view from the lounge window and bedroom was beautiful. The surrounding farm land was well looked after and the cottage was located in a very quiet area which made for a peaceful and relaxing stay. There is a lovely river running through the farm and is easily accessible through the fields. A lovely walk and friendly inquisitive sheep and goats on the way. The owners of the farm were very friendly and always stopped for a chat and asked how our day has been. Janet even went out of her way before we arrived to find out if anyone locally was selling eggs. She rang me back to let me know. Unfortunately due to coronavirus there were no eggs for sale but normally a neighbour would be selling them. The cottage is in easy driving distance for many of the local attractions. We really enjoyed our stay and even though times are difficult and uncertain at the moment we felt safe and had a relaxing and enjoyable break. We would recommend Meadow Cottage or any of the other cottages on Cowldyke farm.

  • "The owners made us feel extremely welcome and went out of their way by helping us out by pulling our vehicle out of a muddy field during a diversion after floods."

    Plenty of long walks and nearby villages. Our only negative the facilities. With us having 1 small child it would have been nice if there were hay bails or swings or something on site to keep him occupied. Apart from that it was a really lovely break and highly recommend it to anyone looking for peace and tranquility.
