Me, my new husband and our 6 year old, Lewie spent Easter weekend in the Blacksmiths cottage for our minimoon.
The cottage is luxurious, homely and has everything you could need. It was spotlessly clean. Catherine met us on arrival, she is the perfect host and had gone to the trouble of collecting leaflets of things we may like to do with Lewie. She is so thoughtful that she left champagne and a balloon to celebrate our wedding and an Easter egg and chocolate for Lewie. The welcome basket is a lovely touch. We made use of the hot tub and the 3d tv. Cannot recommend the barns enough. Truly lovely break. Thank you Catherine.
Very clean and tidy. Catherine and her husband Dave were very welcoming. Everything was of a very high standard. We will return one day.
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.
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
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
Best cottage we have stayed in. It was quite and peaceful the hot tub was amazing and Cathrine the owner was so friendly and helpful
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!
