  • "A lovely comfortable and stylish holiday home in a peaceful and relaxing location."

    A great place to unwind and reconnect with nature. Lots of footpaths and bridleways on the doorstep and close by to explore. A good base for exploring the best of what Yorkshire has to offer. A big thank you to our hosts for welcome gifts. We hope to return again in the future.

  • "Just wow! We loved this cottage so much that we booked our next visit on our departure date!"

    We travelled from the South West with our dog to visit Yorkshire for 4 nights and this was the perfect location to explore surrounding areas. We arrived in the dark to find the cottage was decorated with a lit Christmas tree and garlands on the fireplace which made it feel super festive. The cottage was extremely clean and modern whilst giving it a countryside feel with the decor which is exactly what we wanted for our accommodation. It felt like home from home. We were delighted to find prosecco, mince pies and fresh flowers on our arrival which was a lovely added touch. The beds we very comfortable and we enjoyed sitting by the fire of an evening whilst playing card games and watching movies under a blanket. On our last night we enjoyed a bubble bath to relax with a glass of wine. The bathroom was always lovely and warm too! Our dog absolutely loved the big enclosed garden we were never worried about letting him out. It was so nice to see the farm animals as we left or came back to the cottage along the long driveway. We even saw an owl sat on the fence which we don't get to see where we live. The area was very peaceful, no disturbances and super dark at night due to no light pollution. It was only a 10 minute drive from Thirsk Town where they had supermarkets and local shops. During our week we visited Helmsley, The White Horse at Sutton Bank and on our last day we drove an hour to Whitby. We wished we stayed longer to explore more. We will 100% be back again, it's the best accommodation we have stayed in and we love Yorkshire, everyone is so friendly and approachable.

  • "We always try to book holiday cottages that feel a little bit special, and the Old Dairy was by far our favourite to date."

    Beautifully renovated with thoughtful design choices and quality fixtures. The Bluetooth mirror in the bathroom was fun! It was also spotlessly clean and little touches like Prosecco and fresh eggs were greatly appreciated. The cottage is so warm and cosy. I think really well insulated and with very effective heating. We also loved using the log burner. Our doggo loved the fully enclosed, very private back garden, which was perfectly maintained and had amazing views. If you have a very little dog there may be one spot it could escape, but I’m sure the owners would be quick to offer a temporary solution if requested. On the rare dry mornings we had, we put our coats on and drank our coffees outside just to soak it all in. So peaceful. The location was great too. There are some lovely walks through fields and woodland right on the doorstep. You can even walk all the way to Gormire Lake which I really recommend. Could be very muddy though if it’s been raining for a week so bring good walking boots! You’re also only 40mins - an hour away from York, Harrogate, Whitby (and all the other pretty east coast towns/villages), and walks in the moors. All very doable and scenic drives. I’d also recommend visiting Helmsley. Only 20 mins away and so so pretty. Lots of pubs/cafes and little shops to mooch around. Don’t hesitate to book the Old Dairy - or either of the other two cottages on site! You won’t regret it!
