“Relaxation heaven”

Have just enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week with my sister @ Larklands, the cottage is a joy to stay in, on the outskirts of a quiet little village, surrounded by beautiful views. The cottage is on a working farm and the animals, especially the chickens, are a joy to watch. The cottage has everything anyone could wish for and within walking distance of the local pub. I would recommend a holiday at this cottage, any time of the year, a little gem, therefore please ignore the one negative review from JennieHo5, they must have been wearing blinkers or just 'miffed' that they couldn't let the dogs chase the sheep!

“The only downside to our stay was that it had to end!”

Lovely location, spectacular views & a spacious property with wooden beams, skylights and stone archways that is lacking in nothing! It was a family holiday of 4 adults (2 of which are wheelchair users) and our 15month old son, who it was a particularly fantastic experience for with the large open spaces, tractors to watch plus chickens and ducks to feed. We couldn't have asked for better hosts, they looked after us brilliantly with a superb welcome pack consisting of eggs, bread, milk, butter, jam etc, a fabulous hearty home made meal on arrival (small additional charge) and fresh flowers throughout the home. The only downside was it had to come to an end, so we promptly booked in for our next visit!

“Do not be deceived by the photographs.”
Reviewed July 9, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We stayed at Larklands for one week.The outside photographs do not tell the whole story.The lounge faces a derelect buiding a broken down old barn.There is not any privacy as you share the back patio with three other families.The back patio is made up of loose chippings and not a suitable surface for anyone with any kind of mobility problem.The owners who at first appear friendly are always around and are overbearing.Far from being pet friendly there is no private area to let out your dogs without a lead as the courtyard and surround are overrun with cats and chickens which drives them mad.The advertisement said it is a working farm, however this was not fair to the dogs.The advertisement shows views across fields to ruins which can only be seen from the kitchen window,it also said to collect the keys from the farm opposite not next door.We have been holidaying in this part of yorkshire for many years with many companies but this was the worst.No privacy!
