  • "Small but warm, clean and tidy."

    My three night occupancy in November (fireworks weekend) of one adult and one very small Lhasa was probably just right. Two adults at this time of year may be a push if each likes their own space now and again. Outside environment well cared for.

  • "We had an amazing and relaxing stay at Cowshed Cottage."

    My son is autistic and the staff couldn’t do enough to ensure he enjoyed his stay. The personal touches that the owners did to make sure everything was perfect were really appreciated. The animals were friendly, the space was delightful and the heated indoor pool made my son’s week. He spent hours every day playing and relaxing in the quiet pool. The fresh eggs were delicious and my son learned how to make boiled eggs while we were there. We can’t wait to return. His only request for his return is to please fix the internet so that he can play Minecraft and stream his favourite programs

  • "What a great place cannot speak highly enough about this place loved everything about it ."

    Great value for money in the perfect place to have day trips , the grounds were very well kept all grass areas looked after very well . The only small thing was the shower and Toilet room towel rack was red hot all of the time which made the room very very hot.what with the hot weather we had last week was tough to spend time in there , but saying that I would still go back tomorrow if I had the chance , P.S the swimming pool was out of this world bonus

  • "We had a lovely time."

    The property was nicer than it looked on the website, also touches like fresh eggs from the chickens. Things like handwash & dishwasher tablets were unexpected extras, really nice & thoughtful

Malton 8 miles. Situated near the small hamlet of East Knapton, surrounded by open, working countryside, these four properties, including two lovely apartments, a ground-floor open plan barn conversion, and a delightful wing of a former farmstead are set within the owner’s large property and grounds. Ideally located, these Malton cottages are close to many attractions in the area, including stately homes, gardens and the seaside towns of Filey and Scarborough. Both of the apartments provide inviting first-floor accommodation, with bright and comfortable sitting rooms and modern bathrooms and kitchens, whilst the former farmstead cottage boasts period features, such as beamed ceilings, parquet floors, original fireplaces and a woodburning stove. The ground-floor open-plan cowshed is a lovely romantic retreat, with all you need in one place beneath delightful exposed beams, with views of the ponies and goats in the fields to wake up to.
