    Beautiful converted barn well equipped clean and comfortable.The enclosed garden was great Grandchildren loved it and a sun spot in the afternoon perfect for sitting in the sun and having food outside or just a BBQ.There was no noise other than birds and peace and quiet was just what we needed would love to return

    A beautiful character cottage in a nice quiet setting. The cottage is spotlessly clean and the owner is really friendly and helpful. The garden is well thought out and is very secure for dogs. Although the kitchen is quite small there is everything you need on holiday. Some of the dining room chairs could do with a bit of a make-over as they are old and a bit uncomfortable and there could do with being a few more matching plates etc but these didn't affect our holiday in any way . Unfortunately the mattress on the downstairs double bed is a lot harder than ours at home so it took us a few days to get used to sleeping on it. The downstairs bathroom is massive. The upstairs floor is lovely and my teenage daughter was in her element with her own bedroom (her double bed was definitely more comfortable than ours!), dressing room and bathroom. There were 2 minature horses in the paddock just along from the cottage which was a nice touch.

    The cottage was somewhat disappointing as the description stated that the farm would have miniature horses and donkeys, which my wife was looking forward to seeing. The only only horses in evidence were in a field in the distance. The hedge growing on the boundary would soon put a stop to that. As the main bedroom did not have an external window it was very dark in the mornings. Apart from that it was pleasant enough.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are sorry you didn't find the cottage to your liking and chose to only give us a score of 5/10. Especially when usually our score is 10/10. We pride ourselves in making sure our guests very welcome and keep the cottage to very high standard, and we work very hard to maintain our 10/10 scores. We normally have miniature horses in the three paddocks as you drive in. In July the farm land was very rich in grass which caused the miniature horses to suffer from laminitis due to rich grass so the horses had to be stabled, but you could have seen them if you had requested. I am sure I would have mentioned this, If I did not I apologise. The location is a very beautiful rural area with lots of walks for your dogs and lots of wild life as stated in other reviews such as owls, deer, rabbits and lots of wild birds. Local amenities available are golf, fishing, spa, walks, restaurants and pubs, a Chinese take away and a bakery and Langley garden centre, these are all within 4 miles. There is the lovely seaside in Hornsea 35/40 mins away, Bridlington and of course York which is 13 miles away. We tell each guest if there is anything we can help with to make their holiday enjoyable to let us know. We always meet and greet and have a cup of tea or coffee ready for our guests. So I am very disappointed to have received such a low score, but as can be evidenced from our other reviews both previous and since this one, the majority of our guests are very satisfied with their stay.

    Great location, perfect for dog walks and close enough to York and local area to do some exploring! Anne was great and showed us around the barn and helped us out with advice re the local area! We loved watching the horses in the paddocks behind the barn

    I don't usually give all 10s in reviews, but this property was exceptional and deserves such scores. It's in a very pleasant, rural location, yet is surrounded by a wealth of interesting options in almost every direction. These include the cities of York, Leeds and Hull - all less than an hour's drive away - and seaside towns, such as Bridlington and Hornsea. The property is also dog friendly and comes with an entirely enclosed garden. This means your best friend can roam freely without any chance of disappearing into the adjoining farmland. In addition, as you would expect, it offers superb opportunities for country walks. Inside it is immaculate with all the facilities that you could reasonably want, while on holiday. Occasionally I had trouble getting reception on my mobile, but the wifi worked brilliantly and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
