Wow....... we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stobthorn Cottage, so much so that we intend to make this an annual Easter break. From the moment we walked through the door it felt like home, the cottage is immaculate, with every need and want catered for. The homeliness of the property was complimented by the hospitality of John and Sylvia, what a wonderful couple. They went out of their way to involve our children in the care of the animals, allowing them to witness the birth of lambs, to touch the pigs and participate in the grooming of the horses. I cannot thank them enough for all the little extras and the support and warmth they showed my friend and I. They made us feel like part of the family and we are already planning next year's visit. Do not hesitate in booking a stay here, you will not be disappointed!!

We're so glad to book you in again for next year, I only hope we can continue to live up to your expectations. I'll start by ordering some sunshine, but you'd better still bring the wellies.

Cottage is finished to a high standard and is set in a central location for walkers, sightseeing, theme parks.....couldn't fault this place....when can we come back??? And a big thankyou to Abbi for letting Lily help with the horses and pigs...ooh and for lending her wellies!

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and would love to see you again if you make it back later in the year. If lily brings her new wellies back,I'm sure we'll be able to keep her busy around the animals!

Firstly, a massive thank you to John and Sylvia's hospitality. The warmth of the hosts matched the warmth of the cottage. John and Sylvia very clearly put the comfort of their guests before profit. Beautiful location, fantastically equipped and although we had no need to request anything I was made to feel that I was welcome to ask. I have never felt strongly enough to review before but then again I have never stayed anywhere as homely as this before. Cottage and location were a wonderful experience - John and Sylvia were the icing on an already lovely cake. If you are reading this and considering going ..... Stop considering and BOOK IT :-)

“Lovely cottage in a fantastic location with great hosts”

A very well presented cottage in a great location. We were looking for a high standard of accommodation and were not disappointed! The cottage is very nicely decorated and fitted out with everything you would need. John and Sylvia were excellent hosts and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Especially in taking the time to show our 2 year old all the animals (every morning we arose to him asking "can I see the animals?").
Location was excellent, a great base to explore the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales. Nearby Northallerton only 5-10 mins drive for quality market town shopping and all essentials. Would thoroughly recommend to all whether a couple, families with young children or group of adults. You will not be disappointed. We hope to stay again!

“Really Enjoyable Break in a Very Comfortable Farm Cottage”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Stobthorn Cottage for one week, the location is very peaceful, adjoining open farm land, it is also perfectly situated to visit the many beautiful and quaint surrounding market towns and villages North Yorkshire has to offer. Sylvia and John made us most welcome right from the start at their very well equiped cottage. The cakes on arrival were a lovely welcoming touch - as hosts they were very pleasant and accommodating. Our little dog also enjoyed his holiday, especially his walks in the fields around the cottage. We all hope to return for another stay perhaps in the spring only this time with our 'wellies' so we can embrace 'farm life' a little more.
