I booked a short break for me and my two sons, staying at Garden Cottage and I can honestly say this is the best cottage I have ever stayed in. The cottage really is amazing- spacious and exceptionally well-equipped, containing everything we needed and more-everything has been thought of by the owners Angela and John. The whole cottage is beautifully presented and contains a state of the art kitchen, fabulous bathroom and ensuite shower room. The conservatory/garden room was our favourite room-we could have sat there for hours, watching the hens chasing each other around- and has stunning vi...more

Once again Angela and John’s cottages lived up to all expectations.Hinds Cottage is a clean, well equipped cottage, spacious enough to comfortably accommodate our four adults. Unfortunately the weather was cold and wet so we greatly appreciated having such a warm, cosy cottage to return to after spending the days exploring this beautiful part of the country. Thank you for another lovely visit and we very much hope to be returning again soon.
We enjoyed our stay at the Brew House. The flat was nicely decorated and well appointed. The location right behind York Minster was easy to find and navigating the old city streets was a breeze. We highly recommend this flat!
This was my second visit to High Barns and it was another relaxing few days. Such a lovely place to be, even in the unseasonal rainy June weather. It’s great that you can book short breaks at this time of year. Everything was ‘spot on’. Hope to be back soon.
We have been to a number of the properties owned by the Foster family both in York and in the Bempton area and we have never ever been disappointed. The quality and attention to the finest of detail is second to none. Simply everything is to perfection. Your personal comfort has been given such careful consideration and the family and their lovely staff are such kind and very considerate people. We had ordered an online grocery delivery and when we arrived even all the order had been so kindly placed away in the appropriate cupboards and fridges. One of the most important details for us are th...more
Our stay at High Barn was fantastic, just what we needed. It was so well equipped with everything we required. The food hamper was amazing, thank you so much. Owl Cam gave us much enjoyment, watching the Daddy owl go back and forth bringing in food for the Mum and owlet! John and Angela have created the most wonderful place to stay that is relaxing and peaceful. All amenities are close to hand. RSPB Bempton Cliffs is great and only two miles up the road.
After receiving raving recommendations from a dear friend we arrived at the High Barn Complex with great expectations, from entering The Owl House we instantly recognised that this is just a rather special place to stay and we would not be disappointed, the cleanliness was outstanding, wonderfully appointed and laid out, the quality of the beds and bed linen is second to none. Whilst in delightfully quiet rural setting it is perfectly situated for so much of East Yorkshire and beyond. We are certainly missing watching live coverage of the nesting owl. Providing there are vacancies for a fut...more
Beautifully appointed in a superb location. Clean, bright, comfortable and the sliding door/window is a delight with good weather.
The ideal place to stay in York: within walking distance of all the historic sites, museums etc. We loved being able to pop back for a coffee and rest between bouts of sightseeing. Great to have a parking place, though we didn’t use the car except to make the short trip to Beningborough Hall. Lovely apartment ,very tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. I want to live there!
We thought overall the cottage was good. There were one or two features not good, the glass hob cover dangerous at head level both of us cracking our heads! The boiling kettle leaked, and the wet room although not used had a drain smell. We did however have a nice week at the cottage and John was most welcoming.
Everything about the weekend was great. A family of 4 adults and 2 children spent 3 nights in Ostlers Corner and it was a real home from home. You do need a car to get around but we parked one day at Sewerby Hall which was free and walked along the sea front to Bridlington to watch the Tour de Yorkshire and the next day parked in Bridlington which was £5 for 24 hours. The cottage was large and very comfortable, it was lovely and warm and the children loved watching and feeding the cows and chickens. Everything you need was provided plus plenty of coffee, teabags, milk, bottled water and ...more
Stayed for 3 nights to go to RSPB Bempton Cliffs close by. Perfect comfortable place to stay after a day’s bird-watching.
Such a welcoming cottage, a real home from home. Lovely kind and helpful owners. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Will definitely return.
We always enjoy our stay at Field House Farm Cottages.The cottages are always clean,warm,welcoming. John & Angela greet us as old friends as I am sure they do with all guests. We enjoy seeing the birds which live on the farm and watching them near the pond.This time within 5 minutes one afternoon we saw a Woodpecker,a Yellowhammer and unusually for the time of day a Barn Owl. The cottages are ideal for visiting lots of places in the area. The weather this time was not on our side but didn't stop us too much from getting out and about. We hope we are able to return again.
