We have just returned home after a wonderful week at Farsyde Farm cottages. Their location is absolutely fantastic - with easy access on foot to Robin Hoods Bay (as long as you can cope with steps) and to lots of other picturesque walks which we took full advantage of. The cottage had everything in it we needed and was very... More

An extremely disappointing experience. The owner Heidi needs to seriously take note of these bad reviews, as her customer rapport and business etiquette stinks. Rude, unfriendly and it seemed very clear that she only cared about the money. Communication regarding the booking and confirmation of the ride was also very bad. (Not responding to phone calls and voicemail messages.) My... More

Booked 2 x 2 hour riding sessions with Heidi, but after one hour it was clear that she was not interested in our business. She was rude, arrogant and just rode off in front offering no conversation other than to occasionally bark orders at us. We were treated like naughty children, (both of us having been riding for 50 years... More

A disappointing and My friend and I booked two days riding at Farsyde. Two hours one day and another 2 hours beach riding the next. We were advised to be prompt so we could leave exactly at 2.30pm on the first day. We had driven from West Yorkshire in the morning around a 3 hour drive with lunch along the... More

Paid £325 for 5 nights last minute. Advertised as having a pool and garden on a working farm. Pool closed, no easy access to garden and most of farm out of bounds. Heated with wall and oil filled heaters. Tiny , uncomfy suite with broken legs propped up on books . Had to rearrange furniture so we could watch TV... More

Heidi G, Manager at Farsyde Farm Cottages, responded to this review

This booking was made via the Scarborough Tourism Bureau. They made it clear to the customer before booking that the pool was not available but the customer went ahead and booked. None of our cottages has broken furniture. The kettle was replaced immediately that it was brought to our attention. We do not advertise the Mews Cottages as having baths.We... More

This was our 4th visit to Farsyde we love it. Farsyde House was well worth the extra it is a charming house with three double bedrooms, a large living room and fantastic dining room with piano and inglenook fireplace. My wife and daughter enjoyed the horse riding with Heidi while our young son was fascinated with the donkeys, chickens and... More

We stayed in Mews Cottage 3 last week, had a great time, and would definitely return. Heidi greeted us and showed us where to park and the cottage facilities on our arrival. We arrived early so went for a walk down the path to join the Cleveland Way and down into Robin Hoods Bay, only a walk of 10mins or... More

Stayed for a week with my 7 yr old son in Mews Cottage 1. He had a great time playing in the gardens with the other children staying. I was able to sit out and watch on the patio furniture. Perfect location for access to Robin Hoods Bay and surrounding area. Owner was friendly and chatty and obviously works very... More

Despite adverts on almost every site for the area I saw I could not get through at all yesterday and today when I did the woman spoke to me as if I was a nuisance for wanting to book a horse ride...very rude and uncommunicative and I have a very disappointed daughter. Really terrible service.

I fully agree with "kaz070". My boyfriend and I stayed here in Mews cottage 4 for a week in September 2013. Really great location, to have a car handy and be this close to Robin Hoods Bay is great. Just a 10 minute walk and you're down in Robin Hoods Bay, absolutely beautiful walk along the cleveland way. The cottage... More
