Property Owner Reviewed by JudithJun 2022 "What an amazing place!" Certainly had that "WOW" effect on us and our friends who came with us. We were given a lovely welcome and felt at home immediately. Lovely surroundings and the provision of comfortable seating out in the garden was great for sitting in the sunshine and relaxing. We enjoyed a walk in the little wooded area and also seeing the beautiful horses in the paddock. We will certainly return in the future. Thank you so much, how kind of you, do come back. Camilla Property Owner Reviewed by CarolApr 2022 "Super time at the Cow Byrne" Reviewed by JohnMar 2022 "We had a wonderful stay at the Cow Byre." The location is perfect - a quiet rural retreat on a working farm with plenty of beautiful towns and attractions close by. The barn itself is a beautiful conversion, we were extremely comfortable. The hosts were also brilliant. Their communication was excellent and we felt very well looked after. We will definitely be coming again. Thank you so much for doing a feed back, could you let me know what facilities were lacking and I can remedy that. Best wishes Camillal Property Owner Reviewed by RickyMar 2022 "We had a fabulous week long stay in this lovely property." There was lots of space for our children to play and lots of helpful touches left by the owners for them too - including books and a ride on tractor! They loved seeing the horses and sheep at the bottom of the garden. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area. Highly recommended! Reviewed by RebeccaFeb 2022 "We really enjoyed our stay in the beautiful and well appointed cottage." It was warm and confortsble enhanced by a wood burning stove.. The large bed in the main bed room was extremely comfortable. Parking for the car was very spacious on hard standing. So all in alll..... this property is highly recomended in our opinion.. Reviewed by JamesNov 2021 "The Cow Byre was absolutely lovely, it was in an idyllic spot for us." Quiet and peaceful but also close enough to a village with ample shops, restaurants, cafes and bars if we wanted to venture a short way. Perfectly placed between York, the coast and the Moors. The owners were friendly and helpful and available if we needed anything at all. We will definitely be back at some stage as its just too nice not to! Reviewed by WendyAug 2021 "This is a top rate cottage with quality furnishings and spotlessly clean." The owners were very welcoming and helpful proving a welcome tea and biscuits pack as well as a bottle of wine.

Our hosts were considerate and helpful without being intrusive at all. I thoroughly recommend the Cow Byre for its comfort and tranquillity. Reviewed by ChristopherSep 2020 "Cottage was easy to find, spacious and spotlessly clean and in a pleasant and private setting with a nice sheltered outside sitting area." Very comfortable beds and pillows. Owners welcoming and friendly. The shortcomings of the sofa/armchairs have previously been mentioned by reviewers! Pans/baking could do with a review. Reviewed by MichaelAug 2020 "The accommodation was just what we were looking for in a lovely peaceful setting and such a great location for seeing Yorkshire and the coast with wonderful walks nearby." Reviewed by DavidAug 2020 "The photos didn't do Cow Byre justice - it's so much more spacious and luxurious than we expected." With underfloor heating and oodles of hot water – all from renewable green energy – we were in heaven! The wood stove was a lovely touch - though we were so warm, we didn't really need it! The bathrooms were huge, showers and bath divine, and the beds incredibly comfortable (I wish I'd taken note of the mattress when I was there!) We had a lovely warm welcome from the owner, with mince pies, tea/coffee/sugar, milk, orange juice and even a bottle of fizz for the New Year – so very thoughtful! The accommodation is perfectly placed for York (we used the park and ride at Monks Cross shopping centre), Malton, Castle Howard, and for exploring the moors. Lots of fab eateries in Malton and the surrounding area - with details all in the guest pack. We loved our stay - it was the perfect place to see out 2019 and then start the new year. Reviewed by ClaireDec 2019 "We were made very welcome." We loved the log burner it made it very cosy. Reviewed by KarinaNov 2019 "Of all the many holiday cottages we have stayed in over the years, COW BYRE is undoudtedly the BEST."

Reviewed by PeterSep 2019 "Cow Byre is a lovely place to go to relax as it is away from the hustle and bustle of most places." Peaceful, there were houses around but you felt quite isolated. Your neighbours were horses and sheep. Well recommended Reviewed by MaureenAug 2019 "The armchairs and sofa styles were not very comfortable." Back too low and seat too deep, so unable to sit comfortably. Needed to be slouched! Reviewed by DavidJun 2019 "The location is just amazing, a peaceful rural setting but near to the town of Malton." The Cow Byre was really comfortable, especially the super king bed, everything we needed and would have needed was supplied. The decor is excellent and the layout was very well thought out. Lighting was very good as were the sofa's and chairs. Loved the walk-in shower, the bath is olympic pool sized, well perhaps not quite! The welcome milk, biscuits and wine were much appreciated. Overall, we loved this place and would certainly recommend. Reviewed by GrahamJun 2019 "Excellent facilities." Owner very helpful and friendly.
