“Hot Tub and Great Cottage !”
Reviewed 20 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The cottage is like a Tardis, you step straight into the lounge area, then the rooms appear. Very tastefully decorated (and clean !) with everything you need, ie Kitchen has all the 'stuff' you need. Welcome pack includes flapjacks and home made bread.
The location allows you to get to Sutton Bank, Kilburn and Thirsk within minutes.
We enjoyed morning tea on the garden lawn and took dinner there one night.
The hosts are welcoming and are on hand should you need anything (what i do not know as it was all there !)
We visited Thirsk as my wife is fan of the TV show The Yorkshire Vet, and she was made up she met Peter Wright.
We would visit again in the future as there is so much to see and location/cottage is excellent.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 16 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Just spent 4 nights in the delightful Blacksmiths cottage. The owners are some of the nicest people you could wish to come across. The cottage is beautiful with quality everywhere you look. Never before have I stayed anywhere so well equipped!! It's in a fantastic location just outside Thirsk yet only half an hour away from York . Will most definitely return soon

“Horse Shoe Barns”
Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I visited the barns with my two boys (9&11) they loved the hot tub and wifi of course, it was a stunning barn and in a perfect location, very peaceful yet close to a lot of attractions. The welcome basket was a lovely personal touch, I would definitely recommend the barns to people of all ages

“Lovely cottage and fantastic host!”
Reviewed 8 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a great weekend in Thirsk! The cottage was lovely - the perfect place for a few days away from everything, it was even nicer than in the photos. Relaxing in the hot tub under the stars was a highlight! Catherine was the perfect host - a lovely welcome basket awaited us with freshly baked bread and when Catherine discovered one of our group was celebrating a birthday she even baked a delicious cake! Thirsk town centre is only a short drive away with several nice pubs and restaurants. We will definitely be back at Horseshoe Barns!

“Pure luxury”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Have just returned from a four night stay at Blacksmiths cottage along with three children. I have only amazing things to say about this beautiful cottage from the friendly and helpful service of the owner (Catherine) and her husband alongside her daughter. nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The children and I loved the thoughtful touches such as the welcome hamper, sweets on the beds and a full range of hot drinks provided. We thoroughly enjoyed choosing 3D films from the wide selection on an evening and we found the cottage immaculate. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and Everything provided in the cottage was of the highest standard from the crockery to the sumptuous robes and bed linen. The privacy of the hot tub was brilliant and we will definitely return for some rest And relaxation.
