“Beautiful family week away”
Reviewed October 24, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed in the cottage with my parents, 4 months old baby and 3 dogs. Sylvia and John couldn't have been more accommodating: home made baking on arrival, finding us dog and pram friendly places to eating and ensuring the cottage was immaculately clean. The cottage is ideally located for visits to marketing town North Allerton and there is plenty to do nearby. We will not hesitate to return

“Idyllic Pet Friendly Cottage”
Reviewed September 26, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Stobthorn Cottage is set just outside of Northallerton (approximately 10 minutes from town), in beautiful rural countryside. Betty's in Northallerton is certainly worth a visit, with a busy market on Saturdays. There were many local pubs to visit that were dog friendly, offering a traditional Yorkshire Sunday lunch. You can walk from the front door of the cottage, or have a drive out. The Moors and the Dales are a short drive away.
We looked at the rare breed animals that John and Sylvia keep on the small holding, and then enjoyed a glass of wine in the cottage garden with the evening sun.
The cottage is ideal with a walled private garden, perfectly equipped for our stay. Warm and comfortable little cottage, in a perfect location.

Booked a week while we house-hunted locally and stayed three! Beautiful, comfortable & well equipped cottage in picturesque surroundings. It was lovely to wake to bird song and watch the horses grazing outside. Great walks up the lane and close to all amenities. John, Sylvia and family were excellent & friendly hosts. Sad to leave

“Another fantastic stay.”

Another very warm welcome from John and Sylvia. The homemade cakes on arrival are delicious!
The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring North Yorkshire and various National Trust properties. (Mount Grace Priory is only 10 minutes away)
The cottage is very well equipped & had everything we needed.
Our little boy loved seeing the rare breed animals, especially the sheep. He spent hours riding his bike up and down the lane. This was our second visit to Stobthorn Cottage and it won't be our last.

Had a really lovely week here. Cottage well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. Quiet and peaceful location and well placed to explore this beautiful part of Yorkshire (Whitby only an hour away by car), and fantastic market and shops in North Allerton. Our hosts, John and Sylvia, lovely people. Will definitely be back.

We returned to Stobthorn Cottage having had such a lovely time a year ago. Again, we were not disappointed, if anything we enjoyed our stay more this time. Sylvia and John are the nicest hosts you could hope to meet. Delicious cakes awaited our arrival once again - much appreciated thank you! This cottage has everything you could want for a FAB break in beautiful surroundings. The pigs, horses and sheep make it extra special for me, and let's not forget Meg and Buddy........The cottage is so well equipped and accessible for lots of other places to visit. I'm absolutely certain we will return again in the future for another lovely break away. Thank you Sylvia and John from Amanda and Keith

Wow....... we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stobthorn Cottage, so much so that we intend to make this an annual Easter break. From the moment we walked through the door it felt like home, the cottage is immaculate, with every need and want catered for. The homeliness of the property was complimented by the hospitality of John and Sylvia, what a wonderful couple. They went out of their way to involve our children in the care of the animals, allowing them to witness the birth of lambs, to touch the pigs and participate in the grooming of the horses. I cannot thank them enough for all the little extras and the support and warmth they showed my friend and I. They made us feel like part of the family and we are already planning next year's visit. Do not hesitate in booking a stay here, you will not be disappointed!!

We're so glad to book you in again for next year, I only hope we can continue to live up to your expectations. I'll start by ordering some sunshine, but you'd better still bring the wellies.
