A special stay

“Spent our second anniversary here in Bateman Byre- our first in Fawkes. Both cottages are relaxing and welcoming, perfect for taking a breath of fresh our from our hectic lives. We will be coming back for our next anniversary if not before. Thanks to Jess and her amazing team for making it so special here.”

“Well what can I say... Perfection! Your attention to detail in Turpin Cottage cannot be faulted. This was our first trip as a family with our 13 week old daughter and we couldn't have asked for anything more. The use of the baby equipment is a lovely touch and very helpful when travelling an infant. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and we will be back. Thank you!”

A beautiful part of the country

“Another fantastic break at Thief Hole Cottages!! The cottage was absolutely lovely, well equipped and situated in a beautiful part of the country. The views are amazing and we all enjoyed spending time in the cottages. George (age 4) really enjoyed the play area and made a lot of friends from the other cottages. Thank you Jessica, Phillip and the team for a fantastic stay and we will look forward to coming back soon.”

Nothing too much!

“A fantastic find, set up above Northallerton in beautifully developed barns. Our 'barn' had 4 bedrooms, a superb lounge and large kitchen with everything supplied to help your stay to be relaxing and uncomplicated. The rooms and decor were of the highest of specification.”

A wonderful birthday celebration

“Staying in Millington House 8 ladies enjoyed a wonderful birthday celebration. The house is of a very high standard and the views are amazing. All your needs are catered for and the birthday balloon, cake, wine and lots more were a lovely touch from the owners. We were very impressed and would certainly recommend it to others.”

Such a fantastic place!

“We have just returned from a stay in Swift Nick with our infant daughter and the in-laws. A fabulous stay and the cottage layout is perfect for 2 couples who want to maintain some privacy, as the bedrooms and bathrooms are either side of the living space. The kitchen was beautiful and spacious, the living area was lovely and light, every detail was thought of, and the location of the cottage is brilliant for days out in York, Northallerton, Thirsk and lots of other places. Considering a Christmas stay here in the future, would really love to get the fire lit! Booked via babyfriendlyboltholes and would definitely do this again.”
