Thief Hole Cottages
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We stayed in Thiefhole Barn in February for the third time and it just gets better & better. As a couple we have also stayed in Fawkes & Turpin cottages. Jessica & Philip take great care in providing you with everything you need and nothing is too much trouble. The cottages are situated within easy access to Thirsk and Northallerton. We have already booked two further breaks for 2014 in Thiefhole and Fawkes cottages and we cant wait for our return.

We stayed here end March and end August 2012. We were an extended family party grandparents parents grandchildren even a nanny as we were in Yorkshire for two family weddings. We had a fabulous stay both times with all the extras required for young children. The barn was comfortable warm and there was nothing more that we could have asked for.
The views, swallows and ducks walking past us twice a day were an extra bonus.

Although it is a while since we last visited Thief Hole Cottages we still would like to leave our review. We stayed in Fawkes first time and when we came back with the family stayed in Swift Nick. On both occasions we were delighted with every aspect of the cottages and our stay! Jessica and her team are truly remarkable in the way they run and look after the accommodation! We definitely hope to be back in the near future.

Stayed here end of June begining July. Our second visit which was an improvement on the first although we did not think that was possible. Attention to detail is amazing, from the welcome pack to robes and slippers to mini sewing kit,luxury bedding, excellent coffee pod selection,the list goes on. The cottage is equipped with everything you could need. We had a minor problem with the shower head which was rectified as soon as we mentioned it to Philip while he was doing grounds maintenance. They even sent a personal thankyou card on our return home. Certainly the best cottage we have stayed in, with easy access to many places in this lovely part of Yorkshire.

Theif Hole Barn was a pleasure to stay in. We went as an extended family to celebrate 2 birthdays. The cottage itself is lovely as us the view but what made it so different from any other cottage we've stayed in was all the extra care that was shown by the owners. Before we arrived we were given excellent information. When we arrived we couldn't believe how well we had been looked after. We paid extra for the celebration pack. On arrival we found a delicious home-made chocolate birthday cake, a bottle of fizz, huge foil numbered birthday balloons and decorations all around the house. As well as all this we were given fresh bread, organic butter, a large batch of freshly made scones, jams, hot chocolate, other bits I can't recall now and they even left magazines for the children suitable for their ages. We've stayed in lots of cottages but never been so well looked after as this one. We highly recommend a visit here. Enjoy!

Spent a four night holiday here with family including two grown up sons and elderly mother. The swift nicks cottage was out of this world, absolute luxury. Every necessity was provided for including those to indulge (champagne, top notch coffee machine and even fifty shades trilogy).
A lovely hamper with fresh goods awaited our arrival along with slippers and soft fluffy bath robes which was perfect. Jessica the owner was absolutely amazing making us feel very welcome during our stay. Lots and lots off little extras that made things so perfect especially the hand made cards left for us (thank you card arrived too, soon after we arrived home). We would thoroughly recomend this place for families and it would be a romantic treat for any couple. The views are fab,the cottages Iindescribable indulgence and every whim provided for. You need nothing more than a change of clothes. So glad we found this place. I could not possibly find anything negative about this place except we wish we had stayed longer.

Room Tip: Just book and go. Clothes and toothbrush are ALL you need. Relax and enjoy
