  • "A wonderful cottage."

    So peaceful and relaxing despite only being 15 minutes from the centre of York or just a 5 minute drive to the park and ride at Poppleton. We spent hours simply watching the rabbits and squirels in the garden or the ducks around the pond. The owners live in an adjacent property, they were really friendly and amenable. We certainly plan to go back.

  • "Absolutely lovely relaxing stay and the hosts were very nice, helpful and informative."

    The view from the lounge and kitchen was fabulous. There was milk in the fridge and a few teabags, coffee, sugar and biscuits. Not sure if I read the instructions correctly but would of liked a starter kit for the fire or would of brought our own. But the lovely hosts supplied us with a few logs, firelighters and matches at a cost of £10. There is a helpful information booklet. We recommend the Yorkshire Heart Vineyard it was amazing and the Alice Hawthorn Inn was lovely for lunch.

  • "We had a wonderful relaxing break at The Barn, it was so peaceful and the views across the countryside are lovely."

    Nothing was too much trouble for Debbie and Barry who are the loveliest of hosts; we're grateful too to Becca for letting our 4 year old son help with feeding and grooming Alfie the Shetland pony, it was the highlight of our son's holiday. The Barn is perfectly placed for easy access to the A59 so York, Knaresborough and Harrogate are easily reached. The facilities are very good and we felt at home straight away, especially on the large corner sofa, and the weather was warm enough to sit outside most evenings enjoying the peace and quiet of the large garden. Our stay was everything we hoped it would be and we're looking forward to our return visit in 2023.

    The furnishings and all the thoughtful additions have been amazing. The owners on site have been wonderful, so friendly. This is the best holiday cottage we have ever hired!!
