The chalet was exactly as was described in the bio and more. Extremely clean, comfortable lounge furniture, dressed with a Christmas tree. It has everything you need for a homely holiday:- we had a wonderful quiet Christmas break, mum cooked the dinner in the chalet and had everything to hand. We played board games (sure mum cheats) and was a reminder to enjoy family. The chalet is perfectly situated in beautiful farm land, we had a hooley blowing during the evenings but the chalet was cosy and has a log burner for a truly winter warming feeling. As I have health issues the mobility aids in the shower gave us peace of mind. Ann left us welcome gifts that was so kind.. We visited a few places including the chalk white horse but we really only wanted a quiet reset as a family. We definitely will be returning to the chalet in warmer months so we can take advantage of the garden and to visit the beautiful area. Reviewed by William5.0★Dec 2023 "We had a wonderful week here, the property was lovely and clean, and very well equipped with everything you could need." And well positioned for visiting all the sights. Ann and the family were very friendly and helpful, and would highly recommend. Reviewed by Andrew5.0★Sep 2023 "Anne was very welcoming, friendly and once she was sure we were settled and happy she left us to our privacy with the assurance she was available at any time if there should be a problem." The property is styled for the older person perhaps but has every comfort, is well equipped and clean. It would be a boon to those with minor physical issues. There is a railway track close by but this should not put anyone off as it is of no consequence and interfered with our stay not one jot. Important to note that this is a working farm with animals etc. but the cattle make excellent and quiet neighbours! All-in-all a very pleasant week and we will certainly return if we visit the area in future. A big thank you to our hosts! Reviewed by Brian5.0★Sep 2023 "Amazing holiday with extras ie welcome pack ,extra aids for disabilities and a large selection of games / puzzles ." We were made to feel very welcome in a clean welcoming chalet . We enjoyed the cows in the field alongside and watching the train . As we drive through the farm we watched the cats/kittens eating and were introduced to one of the dogs . We also had the chance to watch the baby cows being fed with the farmer . We thoroughly enjoyed our stay Reviewed by June5.0★Aug 2023 "Perfect for a quiet break." Everything you need in chalet ANN provided well and was always on hand if needed.trains not a problem.east west aspect which means when the sun shines you get it .so relaxing.would definetly recommend the chalet.nice aspect .thanks again ann Reviewed by John5.0★Aug 2023 "We have enjoyed many holidays in this area." We were not concerned by the proximity of the trains or the cows, but the single track road to the property was not ideal. In my opinion, the property is very old and dated. The owner stated that it had been empty for a number of years, which would explain the condition and smell of damp. The beds were extremely old and one mattress was badly stained. I feel that they all need to be replaced. Personally, I would prefer fewer ornaments and general clutter, which collect dust. Sadly, it was not a good experience. Reviewed by Jane1.6★Aug 2023 "The Chalet was a lovely place to stay." Ann was very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome right from the start of the holiday. The property was clean and well maintained with everything provided that you might need including a very thoughtful welcome basket of goodies. The beds were comfortable and we slept well each night even though there is a railway line nearby. We really enjoyed our first stay on a working farm and intend to stay again in the future. I will recommend the Chalet to friends and family as an ideal base for holidays in North Yorkshire. Reviewed by Stephen5.0★Aug 2023 "We had a lovely week at The Chalet." The accommodation was excellent - clean, very well furnished and equipped, spacious, with comfortable beds, and perfect for my mum who has mobility difficulties. There is a railway line that runs very close by, and ear plugs were provided to assist, but in truth, we did not use them and we never heard a thing at night - which most of the previous visitors stated as well. Hosts were friendly and available when needed and very helpful. The only thing that I can add as a suggestion would be that a book exchange would be good! Since your visit we have included a fan and have also added a book exchange draw in the desk as more have been added. (if you take it you replace it with another). Property Owner Reviewed by Kerry5.0★Jul 2023 "Fantastic stay." Probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in, especially in terms of facilities. Literally everything was there. So relaxing. Wonderful log burner. My elderly mum throughly enjoyed watching we cows, we all did. Loved watching the trains go by too. Spotlessly clean. Thank you Ann for being a great hostess Reviewed by Marie-claire5.0★Jun 2023 "A great stay in a well organised property." Very well equipped, very clean and the description provided on the web site is accurate. A peaceful location, a very friendly and helpful owner. Reviewed by Jennifer5.0★May 2023 "PERFECT. The Chalet was a perfect place for a relaxing holiday." Ann and her family have thought to provide everything and more. The chalet was spotlessly clean and well presented (exactly as listed). The chalet was well placed to enjoy the morning sun in the rear garden and the afternoon/evening sun on the front decking. The trains, although close, are not intrusive and the cows provided much amusement during our stay. The chalet is ideally placed to explore the area and we would recommend The Cafe at Whitegates Nursery for excellent food. Thanks once again for a wonderful relaxing holiday. Would definitely recommend Reviewed by Karen5.0★May 2023 "We had a lovely stay at The Chalet - the accommodation was extremely clean, well equipped and comfortable and exceeded our expectations - it felt very much like home from home and we were made to feel extremely welcome." The welcome pack of goodies was also appreciated. The Chalet is set in a lovely location overlooking farmland with far reaching views, and despite being near to the railway line, the trains are inobtrusive, in fact it was interesting to watch the trains go past. We were there to celebrate a very special birthday with family visiting on the 'BIG' day - Ann was extremely kind and this was very much appreciated by us all. We would highly recommend The Chalet! Reviewed by Jane5.0★Apr 2023 "The Chalet is the best cottage holiday I have experienced." They have thought of everything a holiday maker could possibly want or need. I would recommend them to anyone and will definitely be returning later in the year. I was genuinely impressed by the attention to detail. I stayed Christmas week and there was even a lit Christmas tree. The friendliness and helpfulness of the proprietor just made my stay perfect. Reviewed by Peter5.0★Dec 2022 "The family who own and run this property deserve to succeed!" Ann welcomed us and gave us a comprehensive tour of the Chalet but was always ready to answer any additional questions. She and Sarah, her daughter, are a good team! They left us an amazing welcome basket with biscuits, eggs, sweets, tea bags, hot chocolate, sugar, coffee, mulled wine, etc. ( that wasn’t everything!) We met Ann’s husband, Dennis, and daughter-in-law Helen and young Edward, Ann’s grandson. All very friendly and happy to engage. My elderly mother and I stayed here during one of the coldest weeks of December. No matter, we were very cosy and didn’t feel the need to venture far. The log burner is very efficient and easy to manage even for an inexperienced townie like myself. The Chalet kitchen is amazingly equipped, above and beyond what most cooks would use. Useful touches like neat labels on the light switches show an attention to detail. And everything was beautifully clean. In most places I stay I usually find myself bleaching everything before use. Not here! Totally comfortable with the standards of hygiene. Some have complained about there not being a dishwasher but for me it’s no big deal to wash up. Just rope in the other occupants, chat, and watch the trains! The views from all windows are so peaceful. Watching the sunrise and sunset on a couple of the days was stunning. One night I downloaded a stargazing app and enjoyed identifying stars and a couple of planets as the sky was so clear. We even enjoyed watching the trains. They didn’t disturb us but they because of the season all of the windows were closed. The farm track is a nice little walk which we did a couple of times. The track itself is well-maintained considering it is a working farm with wagons and farm vehicles constantly using it. There is a passing place at the halfway point so no panic if you meet another vehicle. We didn’t eat out as we were so cosy and I could cook at a slower pace. Northallerton, 7 miles away, has all one needs for food shopping. Nearby is the English Heritage site, Mount Grace Priory and gardens, which is well worth a visit. Further afield are the North York Moors, stunning at any time of the year but especially in the snow! I honestly couldn’t find fault with the Chalet and, hopefully, we will be able to stay again in the near future. Reviewed by Susan5.0★Dec 2022 "Owner and family were very friendly welcoming." Property appears to be well-kept and was spotless and toasty. The facilities for elderly/disabled (all on one level) were excellent - my 85 year old mother was well catered for. One final comment, don't be daunted by the proximity of the train line - the trains don't rattle by, they quietly whoosh by (often unnoticed) but they do toot for the crossing (when the train driver remembers!), but NOT overnight. Reviewed by Robert5.0★Oct 2022 "This was my 3rd visete to Anne and Sara and the animals ." .L just love the cottage its like my second home ..it has all my needs and cosy nothing is two much troble and the goodies they left for us thinks of everything ..so nice ..thanks again lots of love Mrs Bucket he he x Reviewed by Geraldine5.0★Oct 2022 "The cottage was beautiful very very homely." Ann showed us round and had even put up some birthday decorations as it was my birthday the day we arrived. It was a beautiful surprise. Ann and Dennis are a lovely couple who made us feel so at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay we also met Edward and Charlie. Edward gave my husband a lesson on how to rear the cows in which was so sweet and Charlie explained what the cows were fed on. Really lovely boys thank you so much Reviewed by George5.0★Sep 2022 "The property exceeded our expectations and we were delighted with the quality of every aspect of the chalet." Ann and Denis were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were very friendly and took the time to share with us about the attractions of the local area. We will definitely choose to stay there again the next time we visit that area and will make it a longer stay for sure. Thank you Ann and Denis for a super holiday.

Always pleasant to be welcomed by a person with the key especially so when the owner is as charming as this one.The garden at the rear provides morning sun and extensive views,the decking at the front afternoon and evening sun and again distant views.Inside the owner had provided everything needed and having a full sized fridge freezer was a welcome surprise.There is a spacious lounge and for those going later a large wood burner .lastly ,both exterior and interior have been designed for those with mobility issues.I had wonderful stay. Reviewed by Roger Albert5.0★Aug 2022 "We really enjoyed our stay Anne was very friendly and helpful." The chalet was very nice and very clean. We would highly recommend this holiday cottage. Everything was perfect, we always look for a cottage that’s accessible and this one met our every need. The cows in the field were lovely, they would come over to meet us on our return home from sightseeing. There are plenty of places to eat and visit in the area.

Property was top rate just what my wife and I wanted Ann the owner was very helpful hope to go back if you like peace and quiet this is for you Reviewed by Stuart5.0★Jun 2022 "Beautiful sunny spacious accommodation, very comfortable, clean and peaceful." Perfect location for day trips out. Ann was very welcoming and helpful on arrival and there was a basket full of goodies left for us including milk and fresh farm eggs. There were also loads of board games for the kids to play with which they loved. I would definitely recommend this holiday property and would definitely stay there again. We have stayed in many holiday properties in the past and this one is definitely one of the best. Thank you Anne and family. Reviewed by Helen5.0★May 2022 "I cannot recommend this property highly enough!" The owners Ann and Dennis were perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Though very friendly and attentive they were in no way intrusive. The welcoming pack was excellent, one of the best we've had! It is a working farm with about 100 cattle but at no time did they pose any problem. The property was SPOTLESSLY clean. If you have a mobility problem the bungalow has a ramp to the front door and grab handles in the showers. For enthusiasts of steam the NYMR at Pickering is about an hour's drive away - the 18 mile track to Whitby takes a leisurely 2 hours and costs £41 per adult. Whilst there fans of Bangers and Cash can take in a visit to Mathewsons garage at Thornton Le Dale just outside Pickering. If you are intending to stay in North Yorkshire this property has to be high on your list of holiday cottages. Reviewed by Ian Eric5.0★May 2022 "Ann and family were very friendly and helpful, the chalet was beautiful, clean and had everything we needed ,the views were amazing and we really enjoyed driving through the farm each day!" We will definitely come back again soon. Thank you for such a lovely holiday!!! ROY, DEBBIE AND JEAN. Reviewed by Stanley5.0★May 2022 "An excellent property." Very comfortable and well equipped. A warm welcome and a generous welcome pack was much appreciated. A great place to explore North Yorkshire. Reviewed by Maureen5.0★Apr 2022 "This beautiful property exceeded all my expectations." The host Ann was lovely, accommodating and always responded quickly if I needed to know anything about the area. The facilities had all I could possibly want, was exceptionally clean with a lovely smell of fresh bedding and towels (which some of my previous stays have struggled to produce). Very comfortable furniture, excellent bathrooms, a beautifully kitted out kitchen and altogether the best cottage I’ve stayed in with its peacefulness and views over countryside where you can enjoy the sunsets at night. I intend to holiday here again and thoroughly recommend this property. Reviewed by Anne5.0★Apr 2022 "Lovely! Everything you could have wanted." Great hospitality from the owner. Great base from which to explore North York. Would definitely use again. Reviewed by Alan5.0★Mar 2022 "Very helpful and friendly host." The best equipt property you could possibly wish for and the cleanest. If your looking for a quiet retreat as we were you really couldn't find a better place than this. Fantastic welcome pack and my Granddaughter was even left a selection box. This is a property I would definitely recommend and will book again if we are wanting a break in this area.
