I booked a 3 night stay here last week for me and my dog, some time out. We stayed in one of the apartments above the swimming pool building. It was just right, clean, warm, comfortable with everything needed supplied ( except pool towels, which is fine). The people who own the farm are just lovely and can't do enough to help, it's genuinely dog-friendly ( as opposed to many that state this but mean 'dog-tolerant'), and I had a wonderful few days relaxing, wandering around the grounds and visiting Malton- and swimming in the pool (which was genuinely a heated one) .
I fully intend to make this a regular booking, as Malton is also one of the most dog-friendly towns I've come across, so taking my canine mate with me wasn't a problem. I've already recommended this accomodation to friends as a fabulous place to stay.
Probably the only things I would point out is that, if you book eiither of the apartments, access to each is via a metal external staircase with 18 fairly steep steps up to it, so you deinitely need to be mobile.
Also, although there is free Wifi I couldn;t access this from the apartment ( bit of a relief, really, and I'd got 3G for emergencies) but could from the corridor by the pool. . Other than those points, which didn;t matter much to me, it's a total recommendation. The cottage, I imagine, wouldn;t be a problem with either.
