  • "We had a wonderful and very relaxing time at Pollard cottage."

    It was very cosy, clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. A perfect base to explore the beautiful area. Had a trip to Richmond and enjoyed a walk along the riverside. Good food at the pub next door and staff were very friendly. Would definitely recommend the cottage to family and friends. Thank you

  • "Lovely, cosy cottage in peaceful location ideal for visiting market towns and cities of N Yorkshire."

    Comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Could do with some over-door hangers in small bedroom for clothes/towels. Food at pub next door is excellent (particularly takeaway fish and chips on our first night) and there was no disturbance from the pub whatsoever.

    We had a great time and the cottage is lovely but the water is awful, smells and tastes stagnant so bought bottled water, other than that it was a nice place to stay

  • "Lovely cottage in a lovely setting."

    We had an issue with hot water which was sorted out very quickly. A small welcome pack with basic item in like milk, bread marg tea and coffe would be nice as there is no shop in the village. The only negative would be that the furniture in the the living room is not the same as the pictures. Did not find the sofa very comfortable. On whole we would recommend this cottage to others

  • "Lovely cottage very comfortable plenty of outside space for the dog but only a short walk to the green."

    My only advice would be to have a few small pans in the cupboard and a little cafetière. I took my own filter coffee but nothing to make it in. The pub food next door is excellent and not noisy like you would think. Really enjoyed the holiday and would definitely go back

  • "Just returned from a relaxing Christmas break spent in Pollard Cottage."

    Second time we have been there. Set in a pretty, quiet and friendly village within striking distance of all the attractions of North Yorkshire. Comfortable and cosy. The owner Kevin, provided plenty of logs for the woodburning stove to keep out the evening chills. Excellent walled garden which provided a secure place for our dog. No village shop but a selection of supermarkets only a few miles away Situated next door to an excellent dog friendly pub with great ales and tasty food. Even provides fish and chip takeaway on Fridays!

    Nice to haves ..would be a small welcome pack i.e pint of milk (as shops aren’t close by) and some pamphlets on the surrounding area including places to visit and local walks. We did enjoy our short stay and the village was very welcoming and friendly. Great to be able to park straight outside as well.

  • "We had a lovely weeks stay in this cottage, everything was as stated."

    The only disappointment that I found was that you clearly state no smoking at the property and on entry there was a very potent Air freshener and I could not have this on as it makes me cough, and it was then very obvious that previous customers at some point had smoked. Including the bedroom which was a shame. Having said this we spent a lot of time sightseeing so didn't allow this to spoil the holiday.

  • "The cottage was lovely and cosy."

    The owners had left everything you would need out for us... The only thing was the sofa it wasn't very comfortable I couldn't get up out of it. The little things like teatowels cleaning stuff all was there for us to use. The lovely kitchen was very practical and a washer...very useful as our clothes muddy due to wet weather... We had a lovely chill out time in the cottage, just what we needed. Northallerton Darlington were visited not far away. The pub next door does lovely meals, dog friendly we went there The first night. Our dog was chilled and fell asleep under the radiator... If the weather had been better we would have done more visiting Masham Ripon not so far away. Will do this next time ... I would highly recommend this cottage. Thank you to the owners we had a very nice stay.

    The log fire was a lovely touch, even in June we made sure we made use of it. Our only issue we found was the shower wouldn't get very warm and had low water pressure but this wasn't enough to make much difference to our overall stay. We wish we had booked to stay longer as we didn't want to come home, really hope we can come back again.

About the location


Thirsk 9 miles.

Northallerton is a County town and administrative centre of North Yorkshire, located at the foot of a ridge dividing two river basin areas, the Wiske and the Cod Beck, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the edge of the Vale of York, between the Hambleton Hills and the Yorkshire Dales. This thriving town boasts market days on Wednesdays and Saturdays, when both sides of the High Street are home to stalls selling a wide range of goods and produce, plus on the fourth Wednesday of the month the market is joined by a farmers' market. Despite its modest size, Northallerton has a number of independent and national shops, including Betty’s Tea Rooms, Lewis & Cooper, an outstanding delicatessan and wine merchant, award-winning butcher’s, artisan baker, greengrocers, two department stores, several supermarkets and bookshops. With good rail links to Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Durham and York, the activities are not just restricted to the countryside. Situated equidistant between the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, the opportunities for exploration are endless. These include a day at the races at one of the many local courses, including Thirsk, a family trip to the unique Forbidden Corner at Middleham, a trip to a country house such as Newby Hall, Kiplin Hall and Castle Howard, or a round of golf. The restored Victorian resort of Saltburn, plus the pretty beaches and coves of Runswick Bay, Sand's End and Robin Hood's Bay, along with the town of Whitby, are all within one hour's drive away.
