Mr Bains

Absolutely wonderful cottage, wonderful location and brilliant owners.. Would absolutely recommend.
Mr Bains, August 2020
July 2020
We have had a brilliant week at the Granary.. The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed for our little family. The farm was a lovely added bonus and the kids loved playing in the yard and visiting the animals. Perfect location, peaceful, very close to the pretty town of Thirsk and a great base for other adventures. Thank you for a excellent holiday, we definitely recommend!!!
Mrs Mcmillan, July 2020

We had a great holiday.. The cottage was very well appointed and comfortable, our 2 grandsons loved the idea of living on a farm and every day we had to do the rounds of the alpacas etc before we went out for the day. Yorkshire is a great place for a holiday and the cottage is well placed for access to all the places of interest, we hope to return soon. PS Riding the trails on Sutton bank is fantastic and many thanks to Ed for the use of his boiler house for storing the bikes.

We are 4 friends who have a 4 day trip every year to help lift the winter blues.. This year we stayed at Water Hall Farm in one of the 5 converted barns. everything about the Granary at Sutton was perfect. The cottage was so comfy & the facilities were well above what we expected. Edward, Sarah & James were attentive & very helpful. The location is ideal for getting to all of the lovely places around about & the walks around the area. Best wishes. Julian. Angela, Paul & Sue.
Mr Simpson, February 2020

Very convenient place to visit local attractions or to just stay close and chill.. We loved it
Mr Prydden, November 2019

When we arrived we knew we'd made the right choice of holiday cottage for our week away.. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped, great décor and fabulous location. The family and staff are really friendly, always a wave and smile and happy to share information about the farm animals and local places to visit. We would highly recommend these holiday cottages and hope to visit ourselves again next year.
Mr Lloyd, November 2019

Satellite navigation does not take you to the cottage so you can spend time finding it, especially in the dark.. Better instructions on how to reach the cottage, which is off the beaten track OR signposting from the Main Street would help. Flexibility on leaving time (even if it’s just half an hour ) would be welcomed. Hosts did not reply to request left on answerphone - an indication would have helpful, either ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Guests usually only ask for extra time if needed. Induction frying pans are not the best (poor contact resulting in poor cooking). Takes twice as long to cook a fried breakfast (which is purchasable on the farm). Otherwise a fantastic stay. Ed is an excellent host.
Dr Patel, October 2019

We are James Herriot and The Yorkshire Vet fans.. Staying at the Granary cottage was on a farm of animals. We heard some funny stories about the vet dealing with one of the cows. Everyone is friendly here. The cottage was so well equipped and above our expectations.The James Herriot museum in Thirsk was brilliant, so much to see and brought back memories of the series All Creatures Great and Small. So many places to visit, you really need longer than a week here. That's the excuse to come back!
Mr Dowding, September 2019
September 2019
Second time at Waterhall farm and thoroughly enjoyed our time there.. We had a lovely chat with Ed about the alpacas and sheep which was very interesting, The problem with the dishwasher was quickly rectified, a good sign for customer experience. All the housekeeping staff were very welcoming. The place is very clean with all the equipment you need should you want to cook your own meals. We recommend the Greyhound Inn at Bagby, close by and serving delicious food Turkish style. I only ticked met my expectations, as that is what I expected from Sykes after our 10th booking with them in less than 2 years.
Mrs Warner, September 2019
August 2019
The cottage had everything we needed and we would definitely stay there again if we came back to the area.. It is in a great location for visiting lots of different areas. Beningbrough Hall, York, Fountains Abbey, Sutton Bank visitors centre, Helmsley, the Coast.
Mr Davies
June 2019
It would be nice to have black out blinds in the bedroom and we are use to a softer bed just saying.. Other wise all great, nice meeting Ed and his son nice people. Down to earth. Thank you very much
Mr Evans
June 2019
The accommodation was very comfortable and there were some nice little touches.. Hand soap next to every sink and toiletries in bathroom. Tea, coffee, biscuits, milk etc. The situation of the accommodation is great for getting around the Yorkshire Moors and the Dales. So much to see and do. We had a brilliant holiday, thank you.
Mrs Lavin, August 2019

A great place to stay, peaceful, clean and comfortable.. The owners were happy to introduce us to all the farm animals. Good area for National Trust and English Heritage properties. Bempton Cliffs are wonderful for watching the sea birds.

We stayed here over Christmas and had a lovely time..

Brilliant cottage in lovely surroundings.. Owner very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Hardman
June 2018
Excellent clean accommodation and really helpful family, who were always available if needed.. Great location for any family holiday or couples. Only one minor downside was mattresses and pillows quite firm if one is used to contour or softer ones but this did not spoil our holiday in any way. We would definitely go back. Would definitely recommend.
Mr Robinson
May 2018
Lovely owners and friendly pets! The Granary was exceptionally clean and had everything we could need. The welcome pack and toiletries were a lovely addition. Our 8 year old loved that she could accompany the farmer around the fields and meet the Alpacas! We hope to return. Thank you
Mrs Moye

This is a wonderful place to stay with children, all the animals to see and feed .. Beautiful walks and local pubs serving really great food. Everyone so friendly. Also with the range of accommodation to stay in a great destination for family get togethers.

This has to be a benchmark for the quintessential relax and unwind holiday.. The granary has all the mod cons you need to make it a home from home for the stay, the local attractions are all interesting and fun. I cannot say more than on the first night of our stay we were already looking for a week to book next year.
Mr Miller

This is the second time we have stayed at Waterhall cottages, the last time we stayed in The Stable as it was just the two of us.. We enjoyed our stay so much we came back with our family to stay in the Granary. There is nothing that you could fault with this property. We hope to be able to return again soon.

The Granary was so incredibly comfortable. The couches were perfect for relaxing at the end of the day; the courtyard tables were perfect for an early morning coffee in the sun, or a late afternoon glass of wine with a book. Our kids loved the alpacas, piglets, sheep, chickens and cows. The 8:30am feeding was the highlight of the holiday for the kids! Very convenient location and already recommended to friends and colleagues.

Wow, what a beautiful cottage in a fantastic area of the Yorkshire Dales! We chose this cottage as it had a downstairs bedroom and bathroom for my sister who is disabled. We loved this home away from home. So comfortable and had everything we needed. Victoria and Ed were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend a stay in any of the cottages at Water Hall Farm.

The cottage was brand new; set within the backdrop of the working farmyard. As such the accommodation blended both modern facilities and comfortable 'home from home' surroundings within a truly relaxing farmyard setting. Should you need a friendly local guide or if things go wrong, the owners being on site help maintain the relaxing atmosphere, which was a marvellous benefit. I will certainly be coming back. The children thought it was awsome too, which was a tick in all boxes for us.
