“Lovely cottage & friendly owners - highly recommended”
Reviewed 26 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

5 of us stayed in the Pinfold cottage for a couple of nights - and will definitely stay here again if we're in the area. The owners were very friendly and helpful (arriving on a late flight, we were even later to the cottage - not a problem). The cottage itself is in a beautiful little courtyard setting, warm and welcoming, and plenty of space for the 5 of us (it sleeps 6). Hot water is instant (a big plus) and the main bathroom has a good shower & bath (another big plus). We had pre-arranged towels with Alison - so this is possible unlike what was mentioned in a previous post.
As an aside, at the bottom of the site by the river, the Ship Inn is a great pub with tasty food - just beware it was very busy when we went in so you might need to book.
Chestnut Farm is a very friendly family-run business and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Great set up, welcoming and helpful owners, convenient for York, we stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage which was warm, clean and cosy. We even walked along the river side into York. Most definitely will be returning and would highly recommend.
Only neg comment is no towels are provided, so remember to pack your own.

“Great self catering accommodation!”
Reviewed 10 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Chestnut Farm Cottages were perfect for our stay just 3 miles from York but in the quiet countryside (the option of using the park and ride on the way into the city too). The accommodation was of a high standard with lots of character, the cottage warm and cosy and the hosts are on site and really take care and pride in their holiday cottages. They were friendly and helpful in planning our days. These cottages are available for 2 night stays and over we were not tied in to a whole week. Thank you! We will be back...
