  • "The cottage was lovely and Sarah was an absolutely perfect host."

    I visited the stables nearly every day and I was welcomed by the horses and their owners.

  • "The cottage was perfect!"

    We stayed over Christmas and Sarah was very accommodating, letting us check in early so we could avoid the Christmas traffic. There was even a Christmas hamper for us on arrival with some Yorkshire goodies! The cottage itself was ideal for two adults and a dog, there is a good oven (we cooked Xmas dinner for 6 in it!) it is beautifully decorated, clean, tidy, cosy and comfortable. Our dog loved it, as the farm is enclosed, you can walk safely straight from the cottage to fields, sometimes joined by the friendly farm dogs as well. As long as you are happy running in the roads, there are some lovely running routes through the countryside too. Couldn’t recommend this beautiful spot more highly.

  • "A lovely stay for any real getaway."

    Sarah was a fantastic owner and it was a lovely little property that was clean and modern. A perfect escape. It was really lovely being welcomed by the dogs. Very homely setting and we really felt welcomed. Plenty of utensils at the property for cooking, nothing was missed. Very central to York, Lincoln, Doncaster and Hull if you are fancying a few City visits. Looking forward to booking again in the future.

    One black and one yellow Labrador,!! They love the visitors to the cottage and came to see us everyday. Sarah and Allan were very welcoming and gave us information about the area and where we could get a good meal. The cottage is delightful, well designed, complete with lovely interior design features. Thank you Sarah for a restful week.

Perfect quality furnishings and relaxing decor, super comfy large sofa's and bed, the bigest shower and a roll top bath you can actually lie down in!! Everything you could want in a rental was provided and more.

  • "What a fantastic stay!"

    Pictures look fabulous but it’s even better in real life. Sarah was so accommodating and friendly. Great location for a peaceful relaxing ‘baby moon’ before our little girl arrives in 7 weeks time. Property is a home from home, I especially enjoyed the big beautiful bath and outside area. Our dogs had a fantastic time and the farm dogs were so cute especially Cookie the black lab. Lots of lovely walks nearby especially by the canal. Fish lake Mill restaurant is a must along with the Old Butchers for lunch. Highly recommend, so much so we would have stayed an extra night however it’s that popular they were fully booked!

    The Cow Shed was everything we wanted and needed in a weekend break. Sarah is very welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable of the area. Her dogs are amazing and we wanted to take Cookie home with us. The place is spotless and has every convenience you have at home including welcome pack with nice touches. Local pub is very welcoming too. we will be going back soon.

  • "Just returned from a week at the Cow Shed at Pear Tree Farm."

    We had a great holiday. The cottage was extremely comfortable and spacious for two people (and our border collie). We wanted a relaxing holiday and that is exactly what we got. I had worked and played in one of the top colliery bands in this area (and the country) many years ago. I left in 1982 so the holiday was partly for sentimental reasons and to renew some acquaintances. Many of the former collieries are now country parks, which is excellent if you like us have a dog and/or just want to do a fair bit of walking (e.g. Frickley Country Park). The Trans Pennine Trail is also less than half a mile from the cottage. I had never heard of this before but there is plenty about the trail on the web. The trail mostly follows canal towpaths in this area. We also went to Sandall Beat Wood, near Doncaster Racecourse. All interesting and enjoyable. The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The 'welcome pack' was also much appreciate on arrival. Their dogs were also friendly and it was good to see them most days. We have no hesitation in recommending the cow shed at pear tree farm.

  • "Lovely accommodation."

    A very warm welcome by Sarah and her 4 beautiful dogs. This really made it special as occupied my dog who enjoyed meeting up daily for running in the vast surrounding area together. We both enjoyed the peace and quiet and friendly welcome and will certainly be returning to carry on with the many places to visit. Fantastic for its location and amazing walks. Certainly recommend for anyone looking to enjoy the countryside and relaxation with a very friendly welcome. Looking forward to our next visit. Rich, Marilyn and Tog.

    There is everything you need to make your stay comfortable ie. washing machine, dishwasher and a lovely big walk in shower. There was a bottle of wine, nuts, crisps and milk in the fridge - thank you Sarah. The owner has 4 dogs which are so friendly and well behaved. We are all ready planning to stay again.

Nostell Priory is just half an hour away and a good day out. The Boat Inn provides great food alongside the canal, about 8 miles away from the accommodation. The Cow Shed is perfect for a short break away.

About the location


Asken 4 miles; Stainforth 6 miles; Thorne 7 miles; Goole 11 miles; Selby 14 miles.

The parish of Sykehouse is a peppering of hamlets, surrounded by the glorious South Yorkshire countryside, divided in two by the New Junction Canal, offering wonderful walks along its banks. The largest village within this parish is the village of Sykehouse, labelled the Longest Village in Yorkshire. The village is home to a friendly pub, The Old George, and is made up of a collection of listed buildings including the Grade II listed parish church of the Holy Trinity. The church was built of red brick and in a Gothic Revival style in 1869, although the tower was built in the early 18th century. The village of Sykehouse is home to the Sykehouse Arena Equestrian Centre and lends its name to the Sykehouse Russet apple, thought to be lost, but rediscovered growing in the Doncaster area in 1999. Explore the beautiful east coast of Yorkshire, or spend an adrenaline-filled day at Xscape, a giant leisure complex featuring an indoor real snow ski-slope, a surf simulator, a cinema, a bowling alley and much more to keep the whole family entertained! Twenty minutes' from the property you can practise your swing at the Thorne Golf Club, a picturesque parkland course surrounded by beautiful countryside. Discover the beauty of the Humberhead Peatlands Nature Reserve, nearly 3000 hectares in size, with an abundance of birdlife. Doncaster is within easy reach, home to the famous St Leger race each September, also providing plenty of shopping opportunities. The popular Trans Pennine Trail runs nearby and the majestic city of York is well worth a visit, with its wonderful selection of shops and restaurants and its variety of quaint cafés and tea rooms, as well as the towering York Minster and beautiful Museum Gardens. A wonderful base for uncovering the delights of South Yorkshire, all year round.
