The premises were exceptionally clean with nice touches of welcome pack, shower gels and gorgeous fluffy white towels.. We were lucky enough to have the weather to sit in the private garden in the afternoon surrounded by fields.

Lovely cottage in an excellent potion.. All our family from Grandad to our 8 year old granddaughter had a fantastic time in Ivy Barn. We had a slight problem with the hob on Sunday morning and the owner and his wife fixed it within 10 minutes excellent service. The local bar/restaurant (The Twine and Barrel) is 5 minutes along the road and would recommend that great food with friendly staff. Loved Knaresborough which is just 30 minutes drive.

A beautiful property and a lovely little gift basket on arrival.. It is spacious, comfortable, clean and in a fantastic location. Extremely close to York and the Park & Ride (2miles) and yet you are in the country, with uninterrupted views of the landscape. Great facilities, with lovely bathrooms, great shower and the Kitchen appliances are all perfect. Lots of T.V's in every room, for those relaxed days in, when the weather is not so nice. Beautiful garden, garden furniture with a barbeque as well. Lovely hosts and we would highly recommend to anyone. Neil

A nice cottage in an excellent location.. Although just off a busy road it was still peaceful. Close to access all amenities. York and the beaches only a short ride. Well worth a stay.

The cottage is very welcoming with added touches.. One thing we didn’t like was the split between 2 bedrooms lower deck 2 singles above double bed. The lounge also doesn’t accommodate 5/6 adults unless elbow to elbow on the settees. I think another chair is needed as I had to sit at one of the kitchen chairs pretty much of the time which wasn’t comfortable. The garden - seating area etc would be nice in spring / summer time.

The cottage is excellent - spacious, well-appointed, relaxing and comfortable.. It is very easy to access nearby York (especially using the park and ride).
Mrs Eaves

Fantastic cottage.. A touch of luxury really helps make a holiday. Great location - easy to get to so many attractions both within York and further afield. Great garden space with open views and grass area for youngsters. Highly recommend.
Mrs Graham
October 2018
The cottage was very welcoming with an arrival basket and the owner coming out to greet us.. It was a beautifully presented cottage, very spacious, clean and very well equipped. Location was ideal for getting anywhere and literally two miles from park and ride into York. The owners should be very proud of what they have achieved. We throughly enjoyed our stay.
Mr Cannon
September 2018
Lovely clean cottage in great order with good quality furniture and comfy beds.. Great location for York - rural setting but 5 mins from park & ride. Lovely host. Great laundry facilities, great heating and hot water Only downside is that WiFi reception was spotty, the cottage needs its own access point rather than having to connect to the one in the house.
Mr Cross
September 2018
Very comfortable cottage, a home from home, ideally located for the city of York.. Ideal for two couples or a larger family. Secure parking and only an hour's drive to Whitby. Highly recommended ++++.

What an amazing find.. The cottage was beautiful and had absolutely everything you would need. It has all been very well thought out and having the tea bags and milk waiting was such a nice touch. The bathroom's are lovely and the garden is perfect for the children. They loved being able to see the cows over the fence, they were our holiday pets. We can't wait to come back next year.
Mr Turnbull
August 2018
Lovely cottage, well fitted and all to a high standard.. Only negative- It was on a really busy road, which could put some holiday makers off, but this made access to local attractions easy...so you cant have it both ways and tbh you don't notice the noise because of the position of the barn. The garden at the back of the cottage was a great size and really nice. The outlook over the farmers fields was beautiful, we really enjoyed watching the cows go about their day. The decking could do with a bit of updating and some of the outdoor pots needed a bit of TLC, but this didn't in anyway hamper the quality of our stay. We would definitely book this cottage again.

Fantastic location.. Accommodation was a real home from home.
Mr Morrall
March 2018
A wonderful holiday barn conversion on a small farm 6miles from York centre, or 2miles from Grimston Park and Ride.. Set back from the main road (can hear some traffic when it is quiet), views over to a private garden and then fields. Accommodation well laid out, two big bathrooms - can be split by an interlocking door. Lovely, clean and warm. Everything you need for a base to get all around Yorkshire.

Beautiful cottage with stunning views made even better by the snow.. The pictures online don't due this cottage justice. Really enjoyed our stay. Would highly recommend.

Great location, close to park and ride which took us straight into York centre.. The cottage was spotless, comfortable and well equipped (the basket of goodies was an added bonus and much appreciated). One of the nicest we've stayed in!

Fab accommodation fab location , only negative I would have was early departure as you had to vacate propert by 10am I do appreciate they need to get it ready fir the next holiday maker but I would suggest if possible this be changed to 11am this give you that little extra time to get organised and have breakfast before leaving especially if you have a long journey home , but overall we loved this property

Beautifully furnished and clean property. Lovely patio area and garden - a real sun trap. A very peaceful tranquil scene. As for location; York only a few miles away and park and ride a bonus. Castle Howard also very close by and well worth an amble round. An excellent base in an superb location.

The cottage was warm, clean and well equipped with an up to date décor.. The owner was very friendly. The location is really good for getting into York and the coast is only about 30 minutes by car. I would very happily return for a longer stay in warmer weather, so that I could make use of the garden.

This is undoubtedly one of the best holiday lets we have ever rented. It was spotlessly clean, warm and very welcoming, certainly a home from home. Although it is situated just off the main road there is no traffic noise whatsoever and is an ideal base for sightseeing. I would have no hesitation recommending this property to anybody.
