“Exceptional Holiday Experience!!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Swift Nick was a great place to stay. Location good for both the dales, moors and coast. We visited them all! The cottage was exceptionally well appointed with lots of home comforts and a few more besides. Our host Jessica and the team could not have been more helpful. 5* in all categories!!!

Room Tip: All the cottages were exceptional...depends on the size of the group.

We were a family of 6 adults visiting Thief Hole Cottages for a Winter break back in February 2012 and stayed in Thief Hole Barn. The Barn was lovely, very comfortable and with all the amenities you could wish for. The countryside around the cottages was great for taking a quick walk and other areas such as The White Horse at Sutton Bank a little further afield where also worth a visit. We also spent time in North Allerton and Thirsk both nice little places for shopping and eating.
We spent 5 nights in Thief Hole Barn and had some great evenings in front of the fire sipping wine. The cottage was VERY clean and so well equipped it was easy to prepare meals inside which we all thouroughly enjoyed doing.
Dressing gowns and slippers were also provided which was a nice touch and the beds extremley comfortable, we really didn't want to leave and hope to return when visiting Yorkshire again.

Every thing from booking to location is of the highest standard. A warm welcome with excellent accommodation. Your every need has been catered for with the attention to detail in this superb set of cottages. Our stay was unfortunately during a very wet period, but coming back to the cottage made our stay very pleasant.

The booking process communication was super brilliant......upon arrival there was fresh flowers, champagne, milk, bread and butter plus other goodies. The owner had also left us a highchair, changing mat, travel cot, buggy and a big selection of toys for our little one.
The location is brilliant within an hour of alot of major days out like York and Whitby. There are also lots of old monuments to go and see....or you can have a nice chilled out day at the nearby towns of Northallerton and Thirsk.....
Would come back here again.....fantastic....

We have stayed at Thief Hole Cottages twice. Firstly as a family and had a really wonderful time. We had two young children with us and they had provided so much for them which made packing so much easier for us and they loved all the lovely toys, teddies, books, magazines that they could play with. It was real luxury and we loved it so much that we booked for the year after to go with all our family for my Dads 70th birthday celebration and we used all the cottages. Again the standard was fantastic and we ha everything we needed and more. They even decorated the cottages for the birthday with gifts and cake. They really have that of everything you need in these cottages to make the stay so easy and enjoyable. We really hope that we will be able to go to Thief Hole cottages again and again especially as there is so much in the nearby area to do and explore.

Room Tip: All really excellent. We loved Thief Hole got our family, lovely views and lots of space. The Barn...

We're losing count of the times we've stayed at Thief Hole and we've sampled all the cottages bar 'Turpin'. There's only one standard here; excellence! Each time we stay we see continual improvement. Jessica's always trying to exceed the expectations of her guests.

All the accommodation is appointed to a high standard with quality fabrics and furnishings. We think that Thief Hole is the only place we can walk into and settle within 5 minutes or so. Its very homely and comfortable and we don't have to check the cutlery or crockery for cleanliness; this is much more than we can say for many other places. The cottage is always warm and welcoming on arrival. Parking is easy and close by your cottage.

Its obvious from presentation that the Thief Hole Team take great pride in their work and and interest in their guests. Any issue is addressed promptly.

We'll be heading down again shortly and we look forward to our return visits. The region itself is stunning with its moors and dales and quaint places to visit. The City of York is only about 50 minutes away; use the park and ride facility and take a city bus tour, its well worth it! So is the Railway Museum.

We've been pleased to recommend Thief Hole to friends and they too have greatly enjoyed the experience.

Room Tip: The Barn holds the best views over the countryside. Swift Nick is open to the pleasant courtyard fro...

Have stayed at Thief Hole a number of times and in a number of the different cottages. One thing that is a constant is the quality of the place and the attention to detail in making your stay a relaxing one. One stay was for a special birthday and the team at Thief Hole could not have been more helpful! Would highly recommend

Room Tip: All the cottages are superb, but for a celebration with friends..the barn is tip top!
