Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I often say in farmhouse B&Bs, preferring individuality and small business to those bland chain hotels. My visit here was different, as it was for pleasure and unusually, alone (my wife was in Whitby for a hen weekend!)

I took my bike and discovered the joys of remote moorland, steep hills and terrifying descents with squeaking brakes. It rained and I got wet, but soon dried again in the sunny spells between the showers.

Furnace Farm:
- welcoming and comfortable
- amazing breakfast with endless supply of coffee and toast
- just right' bed and complete silence for a truly restful night
- surprisingly powerful shower with lots of really hot water (much needed in my case!)

The dale in which Furnace Farm sits is very attractive - the surrounding lanes and moors well worth exploring. Go for it!

We have stayed twice at Thresher Cottage in the summer holidays and had a lovely time. The cottage is well equipped, everything we needed in the kitchen, lovely to have milk and cake on arrival. Comfy beds, big bathrooms, lovely little, walled garden. Towels, bedding. Friendly owners.
The location is remote, but stunning - one of the most beautiful valleys in North Yorkshire. Close to Whitby, Lealholm and Danby.
It is quite hard to find - follow the owners directions not your sat nav! Wi-fi is poor and intermittent (a plus and a minus, depending on your perspective!). Expect sounds and smells of the countryside (!!).
On our second visit we could see signs of wear and tear and hope that the owners will spruce up the cottage and keep it in a good condition as it really is very nice spot.
We will definitely come back.

We have just got back from a fabulous week. We stayed in Thresher Cottage with our 16 month old daughter and my parents. The cottage is lovely, well maintained and clean. It was perfect for our week away and reminded us how much we love North Yorkshire. Lovely location, home from home. Perfect!

Just arrived home after a couple of nights staying at the farm, we have had a great stay, Jane was very friendly and helpful and our room was very clean and modern with a kettle and refreshments (including fresh milk daily), on arrival Jane made us drinks and gave us home made biscuits which were delicious, our 2 children loved going to say hello to the cows and the views from our bedroom window were amazing. We visited Whitby and Scarborough whilst we were there and also went to Goathland (to go to the Goathland hotel, aka Aidensfield Arms in Heartbeat), as expected the roads around farm area are small country roads and the sheep like to share the roads with the traffic but to us that was part of the experience. There is a bakery in Danby and plenty of pubs dotted here and there that you can drive to, there is a co op in castleton if you require anything. The room in which we stayed had a very comfortable double bed and a single bed and camp bed for our 2 children, we had a shower and toilet within our room which were spotless and there was shower gel, handwash provided as well as towels, hair dryers, alarm clock, and a spare blanket tucked in the wardrobe for if you should need one (in our case we were fine). The breakfast was delicious, Jane asked what time we would like it on the morning and asked exactly what we would like, there was plenty of choice of cereal, orange juice and cooked breakfast, toast and jams. I would recommend Furnace farm to familes and couples alike and would not hesitate in staying there again :-)

Furnace Farm is a wonderful place to stay with two large rooms serving families or single people alike. We have stayed there on several occasions over the last few years and have always enjoyed a warm welcome from the owners Peter & Jane, their family and new collie Bailey! We are hoping to arrange to stay in the self catering cottage also on the farm at some point which we have yet had the pleasure of. The gardens are peaceful to sit in, surrounded by good views of the North Yorkshire Moors countryside. Breakfast is an absolute treat cooked to perfection by Jane. The cottage is situated in the middle of The Moors with easy access to Whitby, Scarborough and the village of Goathland, featured as Aidensfield in Heartbeat. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is also close by and is like stepping back in time. We are planning another visit next year and would thoroughly recommend it for a short or long stay.

We found this B&B while struggling to find anywhere to accept young children! This lovely B&B has 2 large rooms with private bathrooms. There was also a 3 bed cottage available for hire. We went for a family room containing a double bed and child bed. The other room I believe houses up to 3 adults. On arrival we had a snack waiting for us. The service was excellent, with breakfast cooked to suit our requirements (eg cooked English, porridge etc). The location was around 14 miles from Whitby so a bit of driving as you'd expect in the country. It was around 2 miles from the North Moors Centre, and also close to a village called Danby which had a great bakery and cafe! It was also easy to get to the steam railway which our little girl loved. The only thing missing was a full sized shower, but that was no big deal. The beds were comfortable and the room decor modern and attractive. Our little girl loved saying hello to the cows every day! I would recommend this B&B for couples and families. Thanks for a lovely break, we would recommend to anyone.

We spent our Christmas holidays at Thresher Cottage with our kids and my parents. We needed somewhere near Middlesbrough to visit family there, a good bit of space for our large group, and really wanted beautiful countryside views. Thresher Cottage fit the bill perfectly. The underfloor heating kept us cozy and comfy. Our hosts decorated the cottage for the holidays, and very kindly let our local family members in early to bring groceries and other items for us. We had plenty of space for our group and never felt crowded. The views are spectacular and it was wonderfully quiet. The wifi was great, the kitchen fully appointed with everything we needed, we always had hot water, and there was even a dishwasher and a clothes washing machine.

The villages of Danby and Lealholm are about a five minute drive away. We really loved the Board Inn in Lealholm - really nice place with great food and lovely people. Groceries are a bit further afield, but we never felt isolated or lacking. We had rented two large SUVs for the trip, and I'm glad we did. There was plenty of space for both vehicles at the cottage, and we never had to make any consideration for road conditions. Though we did a lot of driving, it was worth it to see those beautiful hills every morning. My only regret is that I didn't bring my hiking boots - I would have loved to do the local walks.

Thanks to our lovely hosts - we look forward to coming back in the future!

Clean, comfy B&B with friendly and helpful hosts. Good breakfast, lovely peaceful location and not too far from several local pubs/eating places. Nearest shop/petrol station and pub is in Lealholm, a five minute drive from the B&B.

Such a lovely warm welcome from the hosts at the B&B. I stayed here for 2 nights with my parents who were doing the coast to coast walk. It wasn't far from the route and a welcome rest stop. The beds were very comfy with a lovely bath or shower en suite in the second room. The breakfast was delicious with a choice of what we wanted the night before and freshly cooked. Will definitely stay here again if we're back in the area. Thanks.

The cottage is well-equipped and comfortable and meets most needs .WiFi is not consistently available. For those with mobility problems there is a ground floor double bedroom. The cottage has underfloor heating – a big plus when the weather is cool. There is a small south-facing garden. There are good views to the north and south of the cottage.
Hosts, Pete and Jane, are friendly and helpful and gave tips on places of interest and places to dine out. We dined well at the Fox and Hounds at Ainthorpe (near Danby) and the Board Inn at Lealholm, both a short drive away.
The cottage is well located for the Esk Valley Walk, local walks and visits to Whitby, Staithes, Grosmont and Goathland.
We would have given a 9 out of 10 rating, had this been possible.
We would return to Thresher Cottage and recommend to friends.
