All our family stayed for a week,( 11 of us) it is the best equipped house we have stayed in. Very clean, warm, comfortable and huge. The pool is a added bonus warm with a changing area the grandchildren were never out of it. As a family we loved staying there and would love to return.

The house and pool are amazing.. The only negative was the downstairs study/bedroom was very dark and dingy and not comfortable. If this was made into a true bedroom there would be no negatives atall.
Mr Beveridge

The Trainers House is amazing, so well equipped it has everything you could need and more.. The pool is fantastic, our family group used it everyday.and the location is perfect for Yorkshire's attractions.. Dave the caretaker was most helpful and the warm welcome made us feel at home immediately. We would return here in a minute and recommend it very highly.
December 2018
A group of 10 of us stayed at The Trainers House to celebrate my 30th Birthday in December 2018. The house was huge, plenty big enough for 10 people - could have easily fit more. The sitting area was really spacious and perfectly set out for a large group, as was the kitchen with two large tables and plenty of seating. The kitchen had everything you could need (we did a huge Christmas Dinner and there wasn't anything we needed that we couldn't find). The fridge is plenty big enough, the freezer is on the small side if you're thinking of bringing any frozen items but there is also a small freezer in the stop of the fridge in the utility room/bar room next to the living area. The garden is huge and would be gorgeous in summer, one thing worth noting is that the property is advertised as dog friendly but there are gaps in the hedge towards the front of the property so the garden isn't enclosed and it does lead onto quite a busy road. If you have a small dog make sure you keep a close eye on them as our dog ran through the hedge onto the main road twice which meant we had to prevent him from having full use of the garden off his lead which was a shame - but this wouldn't stop us staying and bringing our dog with us again, just something worth keeping an eye out for! The horses are really friendly we fed them a small amount of carrots daily, they come right up to the garden to see you if you call them, but at the same time if you don't like horses they wouldn't be any bother. The pool was one of the highlights of our stay, it's much bigger than it looks on the pictures. We all had a great time in there and took loads of inflatables - it's very warm, too. All of the bedrooms are spacious with a few en suites, there are three showers to use including en suite bathrooms which was plenty for a group of 10. There's a downstairs WC and a main bathroom on the first floor. Dave was super helpful and nothing was too much trouble, any questions we had were answered straight away and he was happy to provide more newspapers and kindling for the fire when we ran out. We loved our stay and if we were to plan another group trip away I wouldn't hesitate in booking The Trainers House again!

What a superb venue! So much space for us to enjoy a fabulous Christmas family gathering. The pool was a brilliant bonus enjoyed by everyone. We hope to be back!

Lovely house in a great location.. The pool was great for the grandchildren!
Mrs Smith
August 2018
Good choice of accommodation for large groups.. Lots of space inside and out and a variety of bedroom accommodation. The pool was a good size and well maintained and provided some inflatables and net for volley ball. We booked Carol Milburn a local caterer to provide us with canapés and a three course meal for a celebration meal at the cottage and we were all thrilled with her food and organisation. We had nothing to do but eat, drink and be merry and her prices are very reasonable. The holiday was great for adults and teens alike and a real treat for anyone who likes horses. Information on places to visit could do with updating but I suppose a lot of people just use the net. Recommendations for local places to eat were spot on.
Mrs Tomkins
August 2018
We had a fantastic holiday in the Trainer house.. I would definitely go back again. 13 people and never once were we crowded together the house is huge. We all used the pool more than once a day, the children lovrd it. Its lovely to see the horses as if they are on your garden. Shops 5 minutes in car. Flamingo land only 1/2 hour away. Thank You
Mr Ferguson
July 2018
The weather during our holiday was exceptionally hot and so the swimming pool provided great relief to both young and old.. The property is ideally located for visiting nearby York or the seaside. There are also a variety of attractions within easy travel distant.

We booked the Trainer's House as part of our 40th wedding anniversary celebrations.. We were accompanied by our 3 children and partners, 4 grandchildren ages 8 yrs to 9 months and 2 dachshunds. The house is very roomy so we weren't on top of each other all the time. The weather unfortunately was not great so the pool was fab for keeping the kids amused. Members of our party went for walks around and about the house of varying lengths. We also had various trips to Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington which are within easy reach. We had a lovely meal at Florios in Malton for our anniversary. All in all it was a great holiday and perfect setting, enjoyed by all ages.
May 2018
The house was beautiful just as the pictures depicted.. We were lucky with the weather so the pool was a bonus. Advise guests to take hand towels if needed as only one bath towel per guest provided. Also pool towels are provided. We used station taxis for several journeys and they were punctual and friendly would recommend them to get about. We were a party of 14 adults and the house was large enough for us all to live comfortably for the weekend without feeling on top of each other. Every one was sad to leave and would have loved to stay longer it was such a beautiful place.

Had a great long weekend here. The house was fabulous- so much room and family dogs were welcome. The swimming pool proved very popular!
Ms Coleridge

We had a wonderful family celebration here - there were three generations of us with ages ranging from 6 months to 70.. The accomodation is very generous and the pool perfect. There are lovely walks on the doorstep and lots of books and childrens games in the house. We couldn't recommend it more highly.

April 2018
From the moment we arrived and met by Dave we felt at home.. The house had everything you could need. There was plenty of space for the children to play and an abundance of seating for the adults to relax. The pool was great, such a fantastic size. A thoroughly good time was had by all.
March 2018
Stayed at the trainers house for my 60th birthday. Age ranges from 3 to 86. Huge house, loads of space for kids to run around. Mix of old and new and was just a great place to stay. Indoor private pool was the icing on the cake, kids were in at least twice a day. Would recommend to anyone.
February 2018
First class house and facilities. Pool warm and fantastic. We were 8 adults 5 Grandaughters and a toddler we were all happy. Thank you we will return.
February 2018
A lovely house, lots of room for a large number of people, comfortable and clean.. Lery good liaison with caretaker who was very helpful with enquiries etc.. lovely large swimming pool which adults and children enjoyed and great that it is for your own personal use during the stay. Nice countryside and good walks but need good stout shoes/boots for wet weather. In the country but close enough to shops and facilities in Malton for any 'forgotten' items. nice and central for days out to York, Scarborough, Eden Camp, Flamingo land and many more. A great place or a holiday whether it is for touring around or just relaxing and enjoying the scenery.
Mr Williams
October 2017
Ideal house for a family party weekend, we had 9 adults and 2 five yrs olds plus the dog.. Wonderful swimming pool and there is a nice pup 1 1/4 miles away good walk. Town of Malton 10 minuets in the car.
Mrs Eley

Absolutely brilliant house, full of character and you could get lost in all the rooms.all rooms are spacious and fully equipped for the larger families( 6 adults and 7 children). The kitchen is fully equipped to be able to cook with all the utensils and crockery and spacious enough accommodate around the kitchen table for all the family and more. You could easily play hide and seek and lose one of the people. Ian and Dave are always available for help and advice. There are plenty of places to visit within a few miles and there are a variety of leaflets available to choose from. The stables next store are Wonderfull for the children and the staff are very helpful and always on hand to answer questions and the horses are so cute. The icing on the cake is the 25 foot swimming pool and again fully equipped for the latter families my family were never out of the pool.A variety of games and DVDs are available and a good source of entertainment for adults and children. Would 100% recommend to family and friends and hope to visit again in the near future.

You could not be disappointed with this wonderful house. Amazing space and so warm and welcoming. Beautiful views from every window. The swimming pool is fantastic and was the icing on the Christmas cake.

A fantastic venue whether you're staying out or if you plan to tour this part of Yorkshire. Accessible with ease as it lies 3 miles of the A64. Make no mistake, this is deep Yorkshire countryside, good for walking but also for access to so many other parts including the East coast. The house has a great country feeling to it, particularly the tiled kitchen with its two large country wooden tables to eat off. The lounge area is massive where many can take advantage of the log burning fire. Bedrooms are large with good bathrooms either on suit or close by. The swimming pool, housed in an adjacent building is an excellent addition to the facilities, our grandchildren loved it. The stable yard on site is a going concern and provides contact with the horse residents. If this is not to your liking it's perfectly ok as you don't necessarily have to come in contact with the horses if you do not wish to. All in all, this is a great Venus for for all

This was the perfect venue for a Christmas getaway. The house was very clean with plenty of kitchen utilities to cook for 12. We were also pleased to have enough towels for bathing and the swimming pool. We will definitely be back here in the future!
July 2016
Our daughter and children were visiting from Australia and we decided to have a holiday with them, to include our son and his family. We picked North Yorkshire as a good half way point and booked The Trainers House which was perfect in every way, Our party consisted of five adults and five children so there was loads of room for us. It's location 3 miles from the market town of Malton and 6 miles from Castle Howard plus its proximate to York and Scarborough gave us many options for visits. We were met on arrival by Dave England, the property manager, who gave us a tour of the house and provided all the help we needed. He was a wealth of information about the area and took the time to make sure we knew we could always contact him if there were any issues to be resolved or advice needed. The card, flowers and wine were a lovely welcome. The house is well laid out, the comfortable bedrooms are spread out through the house and the bathrooms well positioned. The attic bedroom was commandeered by the older children which worked for the adults too! The kitchen is very well equipped and the two dining tables were ideal. We had five children (aged 4yrs to 9yrs) on one table and the adults on the other, just perfect. The lounge is huge and very light and airy, it has different seating areas so you can all be together or just read and relax. The garden was well used by the children and the outside table and chairs accommodated us all. Last but not least was the swimming pool which was brilliant. It was used every day and gave so much pleasure to everyone. It provided a relaxing and fun end to each day. We visited the pub in Westow, the Blacksmiths Arms, on two occasions and the food was lovely. We had a great time in the house and were reluctant to leave. Thank you again to Dave for all his help.

The property ticked all of its boxes, absolutely no negative surprises, it lived up to everything promised, a beautiful residence in a lovely location. The swimming pool was fantastic, and the greeting from the caretaker just excellent.
April 2016
What a lovely week we've had at The Trainer's House. The house doesn't lack anything - plenty of crockery and cutlery and even baking equipment. Washing machine saw daily action with ten adventurous children in situ! The pool was a HUGE success and the kids swam at least once a day. They also made friends with Rio, Biscuit, Flash and Tinker in the stable yard. The most notable thing however was how lovely Dave, the caretaker was - he even lent us a hammer and chisel in case we found a dinosaur at the beach :-)
Mrs Wardley
April 2016
The Trainer's House is an outstanding property in a beautiful location. It is spacious, warm, well equipped, welcoming and every possible need is taken care of. We loved the kitchen with endless crockery, cutlery, utensils and even cookery books to cater for everyone. The 'tack room' was well used for shoes and damp clothes and for drying towels used in the pool. Truly a wonderful holiday.
Mr Watling
January 2016
Firstly, we had a very warm personal welcome. As a large family group we really appreciated the space both indoors and outdoors. The arrangement of the bedrooms suited us perfectly. It was an ideal place for a family celebration. The pool was brilliant, the children loved it. We also enjoyed being able to walk the dogs safely from the house. We had a wonderful weekend with great memories to treasure.

September 2015
The house had a fabulous layout which was perfect for our family. The children tired themselves out running around the garden and with adventures in the woods, no need for iPads here, plus the swimming pool was an added bonus.

We had a perfect welcome , with an informative tour of the house from Dave. Wine and flowers on the table. We were all blown away with the house , it literally has everything you need , spacious light rooms,beautiful safe grounds, local walks, divine swimming pool . You really do not need to use the car for the entire stay. The trainers house is the quietest property I have ever stayed in and we are already talking about and planning a return visit. Thank you to all concerned for a truly amazing relaxing holiday.
Mr Smith
June 2015
It was very spacious all round and tastefully furnished. The swimming pool was an added bonus and very popular with us all.
Mr Roberts
May 2015
We all used and enjoyed the swimming pool tremendously and were impressed that it was heated above the usual standard. The freedom to roam over many acres of private farmland and walk the canters and woods was an exceptional facility. We made good use of local inns as well as self catering for thirteen persons in the well equipped kitchen. Altogether the best house we have ever leased.
Mrs Stubbs
May 2015
Excellent holiday home and a very warm welcome from the caretaker who was very informative helpful and friendly. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed the spacious accommodation; the garden, stables and especially the pool. Only one down side was that time passed so quickly no one was ready to return home.
May 2015
We took our three children their spouses and our five grandchildren ages between 12 to 2 years . What a fantastic place for all. so spacious plenty of running about without the fear of hurting themselves or damaging any thing. Spotlessly clean throughout and lovely comfy bedrooms. The pool was a huge success for all children would have stayed in all day if left. The horses also added an extra attraction plus the lovely walks into the woods , we came across a badger on one evening walk which was exciting. A very warm informative welcome from Dave with a thorough tour of the house which helped to start the holiday. Many thanks for a pleasant stay would love to go again.
Mr Robertson
March 2015
The Trainer's House was ideal for our family's holiday get together, with plenty of room to comfortably spread out. Both children and adults really enjoyed the pool, which was well stocked with pool toys. The property is surrounded by beautiful countryside, ideal for walking and Malton is within easy reach for any shopping. All in all we had an excellent stay here.

We were 3 families looking for a holiday together and The Trainers House was just what we wanted. The indoor heated swimming pool was a huge hit with the 7 kids aged 10-15, it gave the adults many peaceful hours together! The House was in easy reach of York, the coast, the moors and set in beautiful countryside. There really was something for everyone and when the weather turned we lit the wood burner and enjoyed relaxing in the huge lounge. The owner and caretaker were very friendly and we would definitely recommend the House to anyone.
Mrs Wilson
August 2014
The house had lots of space and lots of natural light. The swimming pool was a great hit with all age groups. It is set in a beautiful part of the country. I would recommend this house for large groups.

Swimming in the indoor pool was the best! We wish we had a few more days to just relax and enjoy the pool and outdoors. Absolutely gorgeous!
Mrs Harris
May 2014
We had an absolutely fantastic holiday and are looking at returning next year. Our party consisted of 6 adults, four children and one toddler, not once did we feel overcrowded or on top of each other. The pool was loved by everyone and used several times each day. The caretaker was extremely helpful and friendly, making us very welcome upon our arrival and just a phone call away if we needed anything. Loved being next to the stables and seeing the horses every day, the little Shetland was adorable. The welcome pack was gratefully received, much needed after a 5 1/2 hour drive. Loved it!
Mrs Austin
April 2014
There was lots of room. There were enough bathrooms for 8 adults and 3 children not to be falling over each other, or queueing! The pool was fantastic! We all loved swimming and watching the horses through the window!
Mrs Plumb
April 2014
Access to lots of interesting places, York, Whitby, Flamingo Land and Castle Howard. Also the swimming pool was a huge bonus with 5 grandchildren ages from 16 - 1. Great house, so comfy.

Just come back from a fantastic weekend break with friends. Rooms are clean and very spacious. Six couples stayed in the property and we never felt like we were on top of each other.

The accommodation at The Trainers House is just perfect for our large family.

Truly relaxing retreat for all ages, and we would highly recommend it.

Brilliant, Amazing house, friendly owners and perfect for our annual large family holiday.
July 2013
We received a real welcome including a guided tour and details of local walks and pubs. There was also a couple of bottles of wine, fresh flowers and a welcome card. The house was fantastic, real luxury and comfort. So convenient for a family of 14 of mixed ages. There was nothing that we needed that was not there. The children of course loved the swimming pool, we older folk enjoyed the super lounge and the private bedroom for granny and grandad. What we liked least was having to leave at the end of the week. We could not fault anything.
