  • "I was a little surprised that the effort was made to inform me that the shop and bowling green would be closed as this may affect my holiday, but nobody informed me that there was building work going on right outside the cottage."

    There was mud all over the road, the constant “beep beep” of reversing alarms and the noise of machinery passing the cottage. So not very relaxing.

  • "The3 interlinked cottages were clean in the main but things like the Jacuzzi fitments needed cleaning."

    Light bulbs not replaced. The showers were poor - small and not functioning well. The grainery upstairs shower was efficient. and a suitable size. Drain pipe under wash basin leaking. Wifi not available throughout. The dishwasher in the Parlour was not working. There was no utility room available. Parlour TV had to be retuned everytime switched on. Not able to recycle as skips were not labelled. Bowling green overgrown Doors were stiff and difficult to push open.

  • "Lovely, spacious barn conversion in a relaxed yet private location - absolutely adored the resident cats and bunny!"

    !! Beautifully clean and very well furnished - amazing en-suite bedrooms.... Wonderful, new and safe play area for the children and a super 9 hole golf course on site - a bonus for the men.... Well placed to get to the coast as well as the lovely town of Beverley and of course York. On the downside, the advertised (photos) 'farm' was non-existent for the children, we were advised two days prior to our visit that there would be no laundry facilities (also advertised) which was a bit inconvenient when our grandchildren arrived. We were also advised on check-in, that there were no longer any 'on site shop facilities' which meant we had to then drive out to find somewhere to buy milk etc. The advertised Wi-Fi was useless and created a lot of frustration for us too. Although we did want a holiday break from 'phones and internet', we do run an international family business which relies solely on internet communication and we had to drive out towards the coast to get a decent signal.

  • "The cottage was very spacious and comfortable."

    If anything the online pictures do not show how spacious the Grainery is. If you go expecting to see animals as shown online you will be disappointed. There is a rabbit in a cage and some cats roaming around. We could not find the goats and chickens. There is a new children’s play area which was very good. All of the outsides were well kept and there was always a guy driving round cutting the grass. The ladies in the reception were most helpful. The bathrooms didn’t have anywhere to put toiletries and there was no toilet roll holder. Theses little luxuries would have improved the bathroom experience. All in all a good holiday was had and we still miss being there.

  • "The cottage was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable."

    There's a nice children's play area on site. The cottage is well located for Beverley. There's no washing machine, farm animals or log burner as advertised on their website. The reception is open from 9am-5PM with no out of hours support. So when we had a leak from the bathroom into the kitchen there was nobody to contact. This meant we were unable to use the kitchen lights in the evening and had to clear up the mess ourselves. The leak was fixed the following day. The Wifi is very poor with an intermittent signal as there's no modem located in the cottage itself but nearby. When we asked about it, the broadband suppliers were given our number and called us to fix it when we had no access to the modem/router!

  • "The house was really nice and welcoming."

    Really loved the large open kitchen / dinIng / sitting area. Oven and fridge were a little small but we managed. Bedrooms were really large and had plenty of hanging and drawer space. Outside would have been lovely for nice warm evenings. Really loved the settings, again had it been summer we would have loved the walks close by. There was a few things that we think could improve the overall house: 1. Shower in each room, even just an over the bath shower would be sufficient. 2. Floorboard upstairs were so noisy when you walked on them, woke everyone up if someone got up! 3. One of the couches has to be replaced. The damage causes “bits” to come off and it’s just awful. The blanket used to cover up the damage to the couch looked nice but if you sat on it with dark colored clothes you got fluff all over your clothes! And the blanket slides off easily. You really should consider spending a few $$$ to get a new couch as comments like these will put people off booking the house which overall is a very nice house, in a very nice location.

  • "This lovely barn conversion was more spacious than expected with an exceptional amount of room for 6 people."

    The site itself is large with nature walks from the doorstep. Conveniently sited for access to Beverley.

  • "Stayed in The Grainery recently and, although there were positive aspects to the location and ‘cottage’, there were several that diminished our enjoyment."

    Having stayed at many holiday cottages, we had anticipated some form of ‘welcome pack’. Four cheap tea bags; four sachets of cheap coffee and four sachets of sugar don’t really constitute a welcome pack. No milk; small pack of biscuits. No breadboard; no salt; a door lock that was very stiff and, on one occasion took five minutes to open. Not a lot of fun in pouring rain. No outside light at night; a curtain covering the inner side of the main door which repeatedly unhung itself! Insufficient hooks basically. However... the two most significant issues were the upstairs floorboards which creaked and squeaked with even the slightest pressure. Impossible to walk on in the evening or overnight without disturbing others. Of the three of us who stayed for the week; only one of us found their bed to be comfortable. I even considered arranging pillows on the floor to try and get a decent sleep. One of the ‘leather’ sofas downstairs was covered with a blanket - perfect for those who want to end up sliding onto the floor. The reason it was covered, I think, is because it was in such poor condition with one arm being patched due to wear and the rest of the sofa had the outer surface peeling off leaving small black bits on clothes and floor. (See Picture) The layout and space of the accommodation is good and I could imagine a family having a good time there - once the issues are resolved. Plenty of space to walk a dog and let kids run around. There’s a small playground and a petting zoo for little ones. The site ‘shop’ is pretty sparsely stocked - you’ll need to head to Beverley for pretty much anything other than milk or Typhoo tea bags. Would I return? In all honesty, no.

  • "The Grainery is very spacious and easily accommodated 4 adults and 2 small children, with lots of room to run around inside and outside too."

    We had everything we needed to be comfortable, though it would have been nice to have proper shower facilities in the downstairs bedroom's bathroom. Be prepared for squeaky floorboards upstairs! The courtyard is pretty and well laid out for privacy and the playground was well maintained too. We enjoyed seeing the animals and being able to borrow boules to play with. The park was also very quiet and staff very helpful.
