    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

    Too much clutter in the cottage especially with three kids. Had a few issue such as oven gloves that had a hole in the mm dangerous Ann sorted things quickly though

    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.

    We had a fantastic week at the cottage, very clean, warm cosy cottage. Anne had a pot of tea ready to go when we arrived and gave us lots of information on places to eat and visit with the dogs, lovely enclosed garden, it was perfect for the dogs and a great porch to clean dogs off before entering the cottage. The kitchen is small but is well equipped, fry paying handle doesn't wobble any more (mentioned in previous review) , as it only needed the screw tightened, dishwasher worked perfectly fine too. Track down to cottage is a farm track but it is not as bad as previous reviews have said, it's a typical farm track but a small part of the road up to the cottage. Loved seeing all the wildlife, dogs loved the long walks and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Bedrooms and bathrooms were great, loved the upstairs bedroom with dressing room and bathroom. Will definitely book this cottage again and will highly recommend to all my friends and family!!

    We enjoyed our stay at Acorn Barn for October half term. It is very cosy and it was nice to have decent sofa's that had plenty of space for all of us. The kitchen is tiny and is not very well equipped in terms of pans; there were two lids in total. The frying pan also needs renewing as the handle is wobbly and it doesn't sit flat on the cooker. The oven smokes a lot so I think needs a deep clean. This would have mattered too much if the extractor fan in the kitchen worked which it didn't. The dishwasher also has seen better days. It didn't do a great job and my husband kept having to fix the top shelf. However none of these things ruined our holiday. There wasn't a hoover and when we phoned we were given one but the handle was broken and it didn't work very well. The owners were impossible to get hold of before we left and I ended up phoning the booking agent re key collection.
