Guest Book

Our guest books in both cottages are full of lovely comments so we have picked out just a few.



Me and my family have had a great time here at the Mistal.  We have enjoyed playing in the garden which is perfect for playing many games.  The size of the house is brilliant for four people and the extra space of the conservatory  which was used a lot.

The location of this cottage is just right because you are in the countryside, with lovely views but not too far away from York City which we visited many times to go to The Dungeons, the National Railway Museum and to have a train ride.  Also a big thank you to you for the basket of goodies which we were surprised to come into.  Me and my brother especially liked the eggs.  So thank you again.

 The Mistal looked lovely online but was even better in real life!  Very clean and comfortable (we loved the recliner sofa!) We loved the quiet location too and it was an excellent base for touring the area.  Thank you Sarah, for the welcome pack which was very thoughtful.  We hope to return.

Thank you so much for another fabulous holiday.  It was yet again relaxing.  We are getting to know the area better and have cycled a few small routes (with hills).  Jolly Farmers pub is great for food, Blacksmiths Arms is another.  Everything about this cottage is so lovely.  We have booked again for next year! Thanks again for letting us stay.

This is without doubt the most spacious and best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in.  We had more clothes hangers here than in the last 3 cottages we have stayed in put together.  The gardens, play area and tennis court were all well used, this was helped by the good weather we also enjoyed.  A lovely cottage, in a beautiful spot, thanks for having us.

A wonderful week at the Granary barn celebrating family special birthdays!!  The Weather was great for us to enjoy the beautiful scenery around the Granary.  The Granary was great for a family get together!  With all the wonderful facilities. Thank you Sarah for the goodies provided.  We had a great time.

Thank you so much for a lovely stay.  The Granary is certainly a place we would return to and recommend to friends and family.  It goes the extra mile in supplying everything you may need or have forgotten.  Thank you very much.

What a wonderful place to stay, the kids have all really enjoyed the playroom and fabulous garden.  Wonderful day trips and to the coast and in to York.  We hope to come back one day.
