“Top notch accommodation”
Reviewed June 11, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I can't recommend Horseshoe barns enough. I stayed here on a midweek break while visiting from China. The cottages are beautifully appointed,spotlessly clean and very welcoming after a long journey. The position is ideal for visiting all the Yorkshire had to offer. be it York, Moors,Dales or even the lakes for a daytrip. There is plenty to see and do within a short radius of Horseshoe Barns. The owner, Catherine is very helpful and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. I will definitely stay here again. Oh yes the hot tub is amazing! and the welcome pack is very generous.

“SUPERB !!”
Reviewed June 6, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Wow - cannot recommend this hidden gem highly enough. We stayed in the Blacksmiths Cottage - but did ask for a look around the other cottage called The Farriers and both were furnished to the same extreemly high standard. Both are brand new and are just gorgeous. We were met by Catherine , the owner ,and on opening the cottage door was greeted by the smell of freshy cooked home baked bread. There was a lovely basket of cheeses and chutney and a bottle of wine - which was just great as we had travelled quite a way, and it was late- so it was fantastic to sit and chill out straight away.The setting is just gorgeous and to be honest it was hard to tear ourselves away. Everything you could think of has been provided in the cottage and Thirsk - just a couple of minutes drive away ,was a lovely old market town ,and had a great selection of shops etc . so it was easy to get a couple of steaks or whatever and make a really lovely meal in the evening.and then dip in the hot tub. Pure Bliss!! We did go to York for the day on the train - which was really easy, and also went to Harrogate for a day out as well- both places are well worth a viist. I wish we could have stayed longer - if you are looking for a break away in this area then look no further and just book- you will love it !!

Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing break.
The best cottage we have stayed in by far.
The hot tub is amazing and is cleaned daily by the owner who's name is Catherine and always at hand with anything you ask of her.
We enjoyed the visit that much we have booked a second visit for my other half's birthday.
