“Great,peaceful cottage”
Reviewed 2 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Beautiful,clean, comfy cottage with lovely owners. Alison made lots of suggestions of places to go.

The beds were all comfy and the rooms lovely. We stayed in pinfold with a twin room, very light and airy,a pretty room; a bunk bed room for the boys and lively double room.

Big deep bath and nice shower with towels.

The lounge and kitchen were great with bbq tool for the fab brick bbq in the small garden with even comfy foldable lounger CHAIRS.

We tried the marcia pub in bishopsthorpe with the kids as it was far more reasonable than the ship. Great food with quiz night Wednesdays. Lovely staff.

All in all a great stay on a peaceful site.

“2nd visit to Chestnut Farm Cottages”
Reviewed 2 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is the 2nd visit to this wonderful place and the fantastic Cottages.
Both visits have been with friends. The Cottages are lovely - homely, comfortable, with everything you need.
The site itself is immaculately looked after and so very peaceful - as is the surrounding area.
From the initial enquiry to checking out it's so easy and you are made to feel so very welcome.
The Cottages are a five minute walk to the river where we caught a boat up to York where we spent the day. The Ship Inn is right next to the river too and perfect for a lovely meal.
Thank you for another great visit - we'll definitely be back ! x

“Cosy Cottage”
Reviewed 22 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We rented the Cowper Cottage which is a 2 bedroom (Double + Twin rooms)Alison was very welcoming on our arrival and took the time to show us how to work the heating. The setting of the cottage we stayed is is in a courtyard with ample parking at the side. The cottages are set seperate to the holiday caravans but as we stayed off season we couldn't comment on how busy the site gets.
Alison directed us to a couple of pubs in the next village as we couldn't walk to the Ship Inn as the river road entrance was flooded. They were great places to eat out.
Thanks Alison
