Farsyde Farm Cottages
Ranked #44 of 52 Speciality Lodging in Whitby
Reviewed 22 May 2009

Recently stayed at Mistal cottage for a weeks holiday.The cottage was fantastic,It is obviously a barn conversion.Yes, the beams are a liitle low in one bedroom(I am well over 6 feet tall) but that it no way detracted from what was a lovely,cosy cottage.
It is also part of a farm and my children loved seeing the horses and donkeys.
Location wise it could not be better,Five minutes walk fron the cliff top and under 10 minutes walk to the lovely and pictureque village of Robin Hoods Bay.
My children were also able to go out horse riding which is offered by the owners at a pretty reasonable rate.
All in all a perfect relaxing week.Highly recommended

Reviewed 12 October 2008

We stayed for a week at Mistal Cottage, the best one on site (supposedly 4-star rated). First impressions were poor: the owners did not seem pleased to see us despite us arriving in the requested 2-hour time slot on Saturday afternoon. The building itself is attractive but left a lot to be desired. The beds were uncomfortable due to springs that could clearly be felt when laid on; the dishwasher failed to heat up; and the washer/drier required 2 or 3 times the normal time to dry clothes. The latter problem had been reported by multiple guests but still the owners persisted in blaming the users. Also beware: there are several low beams in the cottage – unless you are under 4 feet tall you are certain to bang your head numerous times.

There is a lengthy rule book which you’re expected to read on arrival. The owners seem to regard the accommodation part of the business as a necessary evil to fund their stud farm. They do also offer horse riding, which is advertised as using “quality, well-schooled and well-mannered horses” for all abilities, but our experience is that they were reluctant to take riders out. Finally, if you do have a problem such that part of the advertised service is not delivered, bear in mind Mrs Green’s statement that “we don’t do refunds - ever”.

The setting is indeed beautiful, and we love the area, but would never return to Farsyde.
