“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Mistal cottage for 6 nights and I have to say the cottage was fantastic, it was spotlessly clean, beautifully presented and in a lovely and peaceful location. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and we loved their dog Tangles. The owners are currently creating a fishing lake which will be a great addition once up and running. We had a lovely meal in the Dog and Gun pub in Knayton, I would recommend booking as it is a small pub but the food is fantastic. The market town Thirsk is about a 10 minute drive away, with York and Harrogate around 40 minutes drive. I would thoroughly recommend staying at Mistal cottage and will be planning a return visit in the not too distant future.

“Outstanding property and location - with lovely helpful owners”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I spent five days at the Mistal with my two adult children, who were taking part in local cycling events.
From the start it was a pleasure to book with the owners - helpful, prompt whenreplying and flexible. They live in a neighbouring house, and were just as friendly and helpful during our stay, while not being at all intrusive.
The barn is simply outstanding - recently converted to a very high and stylish standard. Great facilitates, appliances and furnishings. It even has good wifi and a really nice welcome pack!
The location is just as good - very quiet rural setting in lovely grounds, all within very easy reach of places to walk, cycle, shop and eat.
A true home from home - and just beautiful. We would stay again in a blink.
Oh, and it's a great value too.
