A recent sample from the many positive comments we receive about our accommodation each year.

Perfect in every way.
Everyone was really impressed with the standard of accommodation and how pristine every area was. Superb pool;immaculately clean hot tub checked every day,The small games room plus kids’ play room was a real hit but the morning informative animal feed combined with collecting and grading eggs was ,for some adults and children alike,the favourite extra. We stay in self catering rented properties in UK and around the world very frequently for lots of different reasons- rarely has so much attention to detail been made,even rarer to have the added bonus of extras that benefited every generation. We all loved our time there and felt it went far too quickly.
Thank you.

Stayed in Maythorn Yurt for 2 days, very peaceful and relaxing. Well equipped, cosy, spacious inside with king size bed, excellent bathroom, bathrobes, slippers. Did not really use the kitchen much, as ate out instead, but had everything available if you did need to cook. Surrounded by your own piece of woodland with hot tub, bbq, table and chairs on decking. Even fed the animals on the farm on the morning we left, which was lovely.
Big thank you to farmer Steve. Beautiful part of England, and will be back. Holmfirth is nearby too, well worth a visit, for food and a walk

We recently came back from a few days in the beechwood shepherds hut and it was awesome. Very private and secluded, fantastic facilities, bbq, hot tub, exclusive use of the pool in the eves and just the sound of birdsong. If you’re looking for peace and tranquillity this is the perfect place. Fantastic walks nearby too

'Wonderful, relaxed time. Best holiday ever for the children. We were able to step from busy lives into a quiet haven, in a holiday home that far exceeded all our expectations. Loved the swimming pool and hot-tub, and feeding the animals and egg collecting and grading. Just didn't want to leave!!'

'What an amazing barn to stay in. You really have made a fantastic job of renovating it. The children loved the outdoor space and the pool and hot-tub was an added luxury which we made use of. Carry on the fantastic work'.

Yurt with the wow factor!
'We had a two night glamping break in the Rowan yurt for a special birthday. It was perfect. For somebody who hates camping, a hot tub with fairy lights, underfloor heating, super king size bed, comfy armchairs, fully equipped kitchen and spotless bathroom were just the ticket! Absolutely everything had been thought of, from slipper socks and dressing gowns to champagne glasses, books, board games and homemade bread and jam. Gorgeously cosy on a wet weekend, we didn't even need the log burner on. Fabulous pool which you can have to yourselves, honesty farm shop and lovely welcome from the owners. Beautiful location, less than ten minutes drive from Holmfirth where we had a superb meal at The Whippet and Pickle and enjoyed exploring the shops and cafes. Highly recommended for a weekend to remember'.

Very clean and spacious cottage. Owners very helpful and friendly. Lots of lovely walks nearby. The children loved helping on the farm and the pool and play area were great.

The cottage and the owners were brilliant. The location was great with a fab pub just a minute's walk away. It was nice to come back from along walk to a warm, cosy cottage.
Miss Rusted. Suffolk.
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our holiday in Yorkshire last week so enjoyable. The beautiful and quaint cottage made an excellent base and a home from home convenience to our stay. The pool was fantastic. Our 12 year old boys loved the luxury of a swim every day. Having freshly laid eggs each day was heaven too. We'll definitely be back.
Julie, Nigel, Lee and Ed Taylor. Dorchester
A beautiful house, great hospitality and excellent breakfasts. We enjoyed our stay.
The Jarvis family
A beautiful property in a wonderful location. Bray Cottage has a safe and secluded garden which is perfect for small children. The on site pool/sauna/steam room means that you can stay close all day. The cottage is well appointed and the owners are very helpful and friendly. Get the kids to collect eggs in the morning. My kids loved it for different reasons. We had a great time.
