“Wonderful return visit”
Reviewed November 1, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This was our second visit to Platform 1, we were so lucky to be able to visit again, The welcome basket of food was beautiful once again, it was like coming home, so comfortable, relaxing and peaceful. Beautiful countryside on the doorstep for dog walks. The highlight was watching the woodpecker on the peanut feeder, along with the other birds. We would love to visit again.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed October 6, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Me and my partner stayed here the bank holiday weekend in August with our dog. We love weekend breaks with the pooch, so this was perfect as its very dog friendly.
Anne was so helpful and very welcoming. We arrived to a beautiful welcome basket with fresh produce and a bottle of sparkly! This place is perfect if you want to relax but your still close enough a town. Although the house is attached to Anne's house you wouldn't even know they were there, its very private.
The only thing that would prevent us from going again is the cats, which we didn't know about before we booked. As we arrived the cat ran across the driveway which of course set our dog off as she is cat mad, which means for the two nights she didn't settle, running up and down the apartment and moaning to get to them, so we had two unsettled nights. BUT if your dog isn't bothered about cats I would defiantly recommend a visit, as that is the only, some what negative comment I have.

Hello Josh. Thank you for your review. It has never occurred to me before to mention the cat, who usually stays well away from the guests, but I will certainly take it into consideration in future. Kind regards Anne

“Beautiful dog friendly location”
Reviewed September 21, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Anne was very friendly & provided a lovely welcome basket with the essentials & some tasty treats.The accommodation is very clean & well equipped. The wild birds on the feeders outside the windows were a pleasure to watch.
We had a wonderful day out at Castle Howard, well worth a visit. The local pubs are dog friendly and so are many of the local attractions.

“High level of tasteful accomodation in a quirky environment with pet friendly owners.”
Reviewed September 6, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Platform 1 is a perfect get away place for people that appreciate high quality accommodation in a quirky environment. There are lovely walks either side of the property that lead to the Castle Howard Estate and surrounding areas such as Kirkham Abbey. This is ideal for walkers with or without a dog.
The Old Stone Trough Pub is adjacent to the Abbey and provides lovely pub food and welcomes well behaved dogs.

Hi Alan and Lynn, Many thanks for your review. I was so relieved to hear from you that the missing bubble related to the road down and not to Platform1! We would be delighted to see again.

“A perfect place for two plus dog”
Reviewed September 2, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

From start to finish our stay at Platform 1 was just what we needed. It provided the the ideal base for us to enjoy a relaxed few days away. Anne the owner was a pleasure to deal with for the booking and once there have us a couple of good pointers of where to go.

The apartment itself was clean and well maintained and the welcome basket on arrival was a nice touch. It is very close to the railway (not surprising given its previous use!) But the passing trains do not interrupt things on the whole and there are no trains at night so sleeping is fine.

We took our dachshund with us and he liked it us much as we did, there are a number of footpaths close by which are great for walks as well as the private gardens. The apartment comes with plenty of dog towels and blankets to use if required.

To sum up we had a great time here and would happily book again.

“Beautiful retreat”
Reviewed April 28, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

First class accommodation in a beautiful setting.

Our airedale terrier was also made very welcome, he had a lovely, large enclosed wildlife garden to play in and great walks on the doorstep.

There were welcome treats for our dog as well as ourselves.

I recommend Castle Howard Station, Platform 1 without reservation.
