Just returned from Hareslack Farm, what a fabulous cottage, photos on website look lovely but when you arrive you do get that WOW feeling.. The cottage has a fab mix of traditional and modern, In a stunning location. The owners are so welcoming and happy to be on hand if needed. A lovely stay ended with feeding their lovely pony Didi.

This cottage is perfect, so clean comfortable and everything you need.. Owners next door who were lovely and helpful, welcome bottle of wine and cake was very much appreciated. Location was excellent and only minutes away from shops and dog friendly pub and tea rooms. Garden was secure for the dogs and plenty of walks near by, would highly recommend We will definitely return thankyou

We had an absolutely fabulous week, the cottage was beautifully situated, so well furnished and equipped and such a friendly welcome.. Great destination for visiting both the moors and the coast wonderful for walking and superb eating places all around. We certainly would like to return and see the splendour of another season. Our thanks to Liz for being such a good hostess.

Had such a fantastic time at this cottage the owner went above and beyond expectations.. The detail to small things was outstanding was made to feel very welcome.

Had a lovely holiday at Hare Slack Farm.. The cottage is lovely - the photos don’t really do it justice and the views are fantastic. Would just say if you take your dog beware of the chickens which roam freely. Also you will get a very early wake up call each day from the cockerel!

Excellent facilities.. Perfect location to visit surrounding areas in North Yorkshire. The owner made us very welcome especially enjoyed the welcome home made custard slice.
Mrs Platts
February 2019
We were a party of 4 two couples when we arrived there where cakes from the local bakery and a bottle of wine.. Also complimentary tea, coffee in fact everything that you could possibly need. We were made to feel very comfortable. The cottage was tastefully decorated and very clean and homely. We enjoyed watching the hares and wild life, very peaceful just what we all needed. We cannot give this cottage enough praise, It was wonderful. . We will definitely be coming back. Don't want to give it too much praise or they might be fully booked. Excellent pub food and drink only a few minutes away.
Mrs Whitaker

The owners were extremely helpful and friendly.. The accommodation was lovely. The only constructive feedback I would give is around the seating in the lounge area. If you want to chill out and relax on the sofas, although there are 2, they are small 2 seaters and not very comfy. Beds were comfy and the place is in easy walking distance to 2 pubs and the village of Castleto . Really lovely stay over the New Year festive period
Mrs Carpenter

I have used Sykes Cottages on several occasions.. Although all accommodation has been fabulous, Hareslack Farm at Castleton is by far my favourite. The owners Lesley and Jeff have gone above and beyond to provide first class facilities. There were many touches here that I have not experienced before and as hosts they are so helpful and friendly. Loved it, didn’t want to come home. Thanks so much.
Mrs Barnsdale
October 2018
Fantastic cottage.. The owners made sure we had everything we needed. They were very friendly and helpful. All the extra little touches, such as wine, magazines, tissues, plenty of towels made it a 10 star stay.
Mrs Olding
September 2018
Wonderful stay at Hareslack Farm - owners very friendly and welcoming but also respected our privacy.. Cottage furnished to a high standard and very clean and comfortable. Decking area at rear of property has wonderful uninterupted views of the countryside and no light polution - we were able to clearly see the stars. We enjoyed watching the chickens and bantoms roaming around the farmer's property next door. Easy parking directly outside the cottage and all rooms are on my level. The local village, Castleton, has all you need - a small Co-Op, pub, tea room etc. We recommend the steam train journey from Whity to Pickering - a lovely long hour and a half journey through the beautiful countryside and Pickering is lovely with its independant shops. We also recommend a yomp up the hill just outside Castleton to see the huge statue of the 'Seated Man' by artist Sean Henry. Another hi-light of our stay was visiting Saltburn and the unique Fenicular Railway.

Mrs Whatley

Made to feel very welcome including a welcome pack which included the most delicious cakes.. Beautiful scenery which we were able to enjoy by sitting outside on the decking most evenings. Stunning scenery on the approach and we felt you could spend a week here and apart from popping out for provisions you could leave the car parked up. We all agreed this was at the top of our list for accuracy, comfort, facilities and panoramic views, would thoroughly recommend.
Mrs Raw

The cottage was presented to an extremely high standard.. There was everything and more provided. The views were wonderful. The owners were lovely and friendly and very helpful. It felt like we had known each other longer than a week.
Mr Evans

Great peaceful holiday in ideal surroundings,I couldn't fault the property or the owners who were always on hand if needed.. Cakes and wine on arrival was very welcoming,it was a truly magnificent holiday
April 2018
This cottage is beautiful. The owners are next door and are there if required, If you ask them for their advice of local attractions then they are very helpful. The cottage has two lovely bedrooms, a large lounge/Kitchen/Diner. It was very quiet and we just had the hens to listen to during the evening whilst admiring the views across the hills from the patio!
April 2018
Hare Slack is scenic, peaceful, relaxing and very welcoming.. Can't wait to go back. Convenient location for exploring surrounding villages and towns.

Hare Slack Farm is Fantastic! Brilliant facilities and very comfortable, great location for exploring the NYM and close enough to the coast for wanting the beach! The owners are friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended, and will certainly visit again!
Mrs Cowling
January 2018
The Cottage was absolutely fabulous, great location, Lesley and her husband where really friendly, they couldn't do enough for us nothing was too much trouble, beautiful views of the moors and they had some lovely horses in the stable.. The Tea Rooms in the village was very homely and inviting the food was fantastic and the staff where very friendly and polite definitely a must if you stay at Hare Slack Farm. We had a really fantastic few days at the Farm definitely will be returning. Great location for visiting nearby Staithes and Whitby. Altogether a fantastic time, beautiful cottage very well equipped with lovely scenery, and a lovely family.

As a family group who holiday in the UK, we’ve stayed in lots of properties & trust me when I say I have high standards.. Hare Slack Farm did not disappoint. We had the most wonderful week and Lesley, the owner has thought of everything, including the needs of our 4 month old Cocker Spaniel. It was very relaxing and comfortable and in the most breathtaking location. The only downfall is it only has 2 bedrooms, and as a large extended family, I’d love for other family members to share this gem of a place. We’ll just have to do a rota!
Mrs Brian

This was a very lovely holiday cottage.. The owner had thought of everything and provided everything you needed for self catering, with spare supplies of various things, dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid, tea, coffee, condiments, dog towels etc. She checked with us from time to time if we needed anything etc. Highly recommended. Fantastic location - lovely villages and views etc.
October 2017
This is the ideal place to relax and unwind. The holiday accomodation which ajoins the owners property provides 5 star standards. Internally all the features and facilities you need and externally views and features to match. The owners are very friendly and helpful. local facilties are very good. Access to coast and all other N. Yorkshire countryside attractions are easy and if you want to veer of the tourist routes there are many hidden beauty spots to explore but, don't totally rely on sat-nav to guide you, a good co-pilot with a map is recommended.
October 2017
A very welcoming owner and the property was excellent - super-clean, with excellent location and facilities - a very enjoyable stay.. Minor thing - please change your listing as it suggests there is a game console at this property, when there is not.
October 2017
We had a fabulous week, the cottage was everything you could hope for, great location, just a few minutes walk to the pub or station, beautiful views and a great central location for exploring the moors..

This is an excellent cottage with all the amenities you could wish for. The only problem was total lack of mobile phone signal maybe a pay phone would be good. Otherwise excellent holiday accommodation with friendly owners and lovely animals on the farm.
May 2017
We stayed here in May and if I could I would go every month for a week. Everything that you could want for a restful and sightseeing holiday. Lots of walks or cycling all around. The owner Lesley is nice and a complimentary bottle of wine and cake meets you on arrival. The views are fabulous and we did not go our some days we just rested and took in the views... very dog friendly. All in all, if you want all of the above at a decent price for a 5 star accommodation then this is the place...
March 2017
Lovely weekend! This is in a beautiful place and has everything you could possibly need. The owners are so welcoming and helpful Wine Cake and eggs much appreciated ! The surrounding area has much to do Thanks
March 2017
Fantastic location we seemed to be 20 minutes drive to everywhere we wanted to visit. Everything you could possibly need in the cottage all of a very high standard. We took 2 dogs who loved it as much as the adults and although I was a little concerned about the chickens the dogs and chickens didn't bother each other . Lesley was extremely helpful even providing a bottle of wine and a gorgeous homemade cake, which came in very handy. Lesley clearly takes great pride in making your stay very pleasant and was most welcoming, nothing was too much trouble . Will definitely be revisiting.

We particularly liked the friendliness of the owner and their efforts in providing the little extras needed to enhance our stay.

The cottage was very modern, clean and the standard of the equipment was excellent. The owner was helpful and friendly, I would say it was the best cottage we have stayed in by far.
February 2016
spent a week in this beautiful converted cottage. whilst retaining its charm of beams etc it has bathroom & en suite both of which are modern & very tastefully decorated. the owner was extremely helpful & friendly. it was lovely waking in a comfortable bed to look out of the window to lovely views. the owner has thought about everything to ensure it is equipped with anything you are likely to need. we had very cold windy weather a few days but there was a lovely log effect burner & there were video,s games reading material to keep you occupied with the bottle of wine she had left for us. the cottage was immaculate & it was enjoyable looking out at the paddock watching the horses playing& galloping around. the owner even spent time taking our daughter into the stables to meet the horses. the lovely resort of whitby was only 18 miles away .

It was a beautiful place and the people that own it are so helpful, they can't do enough for you. I really like where it was, there were lovely walks and it was easy to go places in the car. The pub down the road does really nice meals and was very friendly. I've already booked for next June. I loved everything about this holiday.
Mrs Watts

In a very good location handy for Moors and the coast. The owners were very good, really helpful. We were lucky as the lambs were only a few weeks old, great to see them free on the moors. Beautiful scenery.

This cottage is absolutely beautiful, everything there that you could possibly want. My husband has MS and poor mobility, and it was ideal for him, no steps even into the shower, and good firm beds. We have to search hard for suitable accommodation, and this fitted the bill exactly. The price was good too ! Additionally the views from the decking are glorious, and the chickens entertaining. Lesley, the owner, was anxious to help, and we felt very at home. Very highly recommended

We stopped at HARE SLACK FARM in Jan 2015 with a 10 month old and 2 well behaved dogs. From the moment we entered the property, we were amazed. We have stopped in many, many self catering properties in the UK, but this was outstanding. Very clean, very spacious, very very well equipped. Fresh bread, milk, eggs (from their chickens), cereal, jam, tea, coffee....we didn't really need to bring any food :) Very, very child friendly. Even the fire was child friendly. The views were outstanding out of every window. Chickens greet you on your doorstep every morning. 10 Mins car journey to Whitby, 2 lovely pubs in local vicinity, good walking straight from your doorstep. Already planning a return trip! Thank you very much for our lovely stay.
