Nice and comfortable cottage in an excellent location to access Yorkshire Moors.. If you love real countryside and farmers this is the place to be. The cottage has a very nice kitchen with an excellent cooker and American style fridge. Although the cottage has two spacious high standard bathrooms, the rain showers were quite disappointing due to the low water pressure. The bedrooms are spacious and extremely quiet and dark during the night. Although the beds are very comfortable, the synthetic bed sheets made sleeping unfortunately a rather sticky experience even at the cool nights when we stayed at the cottage.

The owner is very welcoming, kind, friendly and helpful and Mistral Cottage is lovely: well furnished, very comfortable, superb master bedroom with exceedingly comfortable mattress for anyone with back issues, beautiful bed linen and the whole house was extremely clean.. It is a great place to relax. It was just what we were looking for and we are glad we chose it!

The cake and flowers when we arrived were a lovely touch after a tiring journey from Norfolk.. Warm welcome from Mrs Dennis who was very helpful when we asked throughout our stay. Very good location for visits etc. around North Yorkshire. Plenty of good information supplied on places to visit,walks, restaurants, pubs etc. Facilities were excellent and in line with those informed in the website which was very important when making our decision to book. The only minor problem was that the sofas were a little bit narrow for a 6ft+ frame - quite important at our age with the usual aches and pains. All in all though we are so glad we booked with you and chose the Mistal Cottage. Richard and Jehan Sexton

Excellent accommodation and very welcoming owner.. A fantastic place to stay. Our first experience of staying on a working farm. The accommodation was close enough to get sight of daily operations but had its own entrance onto the road so you weren’t having to fight with farm vehicles. A well presented property with everything you required for a great stay. A comprehensive briefing pack, local OS map available and plenty of information on what to visit and see locally. A host of magazines and books catered for the curious mind.

While the information does state this is a working farm and attached to owners house following points: Very close to owners house with shared outside area and little privacy.. Waste bins directly ouside accomodation surrounded by flies which entered property whenever door opened. Worse was the awful stench from cattle and surroundings.Warm weather and unable to sit outside or open windows or door because of stench and flies.While we spent a lot of time out of property when returning the stench pervaded everything and made it impossible to enjoy the setting.Stayed on a neighbouring farm previously and had privacy and No smell ! so was really disappointed by this experience. XXX OWNER RESPONSE XXX We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay as we pride ourselves on giving every guest a great holiday and always have fabulous feedback. The website does state that the property is on a working ‘livestock’ farm as not all farms have livestock and that there is a shared lawned garden and private patio with furniture as shown in the photographs. We did have exceptionally hot weather during your stay and we are sorry that you had issues with flies during this time and we would certainly have moved the bins for you had we been aware.

This was a lovely cottage.. Finished to a very high standard and with everything you could possibly want or need, right down to tea and milk on arrival. The owners are lovely and very helpful. The cottage is actually bigger than it looks in the photos and it feels very spacious. The only downside was the outside smell. This is a working farm and you expect some smells and noise, but this was quite bad and we couldn't sit outside in the lovely little seating area. No problem inside though. It's in a really great location for touring the North York Moors and Dales as it's just off the A19 which connects you to most places. There's a great selection of pubs in the local area to eat out at, all of which are listed in a very useful info binder that the owners have put together. Overall, a really lovely place to say, shame about the outside smell.

Lovely cottage.. A delicious freshly made sponge cake was waiting for us on arrival with fresh flowers and a warm welcome from the owners. The cottage was in a good location to access the North York Moors, Castle Howard and York. It was very comfortable and was well equiped.

My husband uses a power chair and an off-road scooter.. He was able to access this property in his power-chair which was great! There was also an under-cover area where we could store the scooter and the trailer which saved me having to cover the scooter every evening. There was a power socket in this area where I could charge his scooter too. The cottage was lovely and the owners welcoming. They even left a cake for us.

Mistal Cottage is a home from home especially for us as a farming family? ! The accommodation is beautifully decorated and has everything you could need to self cater whilst on holiday. The photos don't do it justice! It is well located to visit York,Scarborough and the North Yorkshire Moors. The Carlton Inn is a must for Sunday lunch! I would recommend this property to anyone. Kate and her family were very welcoming. We had a wonderful week here?! I would like to think we'll be back again one day.

Excellent property in a convenient location for visiting a wide range of attractions in this part of North Yorkshire.. The property is very spacious and is furnished to a very high standard. The owners made us very welcome and the large sponge cake was delicious. We would certainly visit this property again.

Great property, spacious and comfortable and spotlessly clean.. Great location.

I knew from the description given on your website that the cottage was rather smart, but my friend and I were bowled over by the position, the size, and the quality of the place, which enabled us to have a very comfortable week.. On our arrival we were greeted with fresh flowers on the table, a tea/coffee kit (with milk in the fridge) and a delicious homemade sponge, which, after a grim journey, was very welcome. The owners of the cottage were extremely friendly and very helpful; nothing seemed too much trouble, and they were interested to know our opinions in case we thought improvements could be made. Always a good sign I think.

Spacious rooms.. Would suit a 4 member family. The owners and their 2 young children are delightful friendly people. Location is great for visiting York, Harrogate and lots more. The National Trust properties are all good and child friendly.

The cottage was exceptionally comfortable and spacious. There was so much to see in the area and all within a short distance. We cannot rate Mistal Cottage and its area highly enough and the owners were most friendly and helpful.
