Perfect, home from home for the whole family. Beautiful house with stunning views. Everything you could need. Great place for New Year - in fact any time of the year. Thank you - We will hopefully return soon.
A wonderful location and brilliant to be able to spend a magical Christmas with all the family. We had everything we needed. Thank you we will be back for a fourth time!!
Brilliant location, fantastic views, the house is beautiful, comfortable and has everything you could possibly need!. The beds are incredibly comfortable and I loved the 'real' fire. We will be back for a third time next year! Thank you!
What can we say that hasn't already been said. We were really impressed with this amazing Farmhouse and all the facilities - comfy beds, log burner, hot tub and a big thank you for the welcome pack and a bog woof from Stan for his goody bag
What a lovely week in the house which was big and roomy but cosy and very warm. Everything we could ever have needed was available and the welcome pack was very welcome after our 6 hour journey. Stunning views and being left alone was just what we wanted. Will recommend to our family and friends. Hope to come back and see you again one day.
Great stay at the Farmhouse. We all loved the house especially the views and the hot tub.
Lovely location, beautiful accommodation and fantastic weather. what more could we have wanted? Hunmanby Gap, Robin Hoods Bay, Ravenscar (saw seals), all worth a visit. Post Office at Burniston good for bits and daily paper. Woke to badger, deer and moles. Went to sleep listening to tawny owls and barn owls. Barn owls visible at dusk. Dogs loved it too, so did Grandma!
Amazing farmhouse to celebrate an 80th birthday. Beautiful views from the house and hot tub. We've enjoyed cycling down the cinder track, the coast path walk from Ravenscar to Hayburn Wyke, visits to Scarborough and Whitby. We had a fab fish and chip lunch out at Walkers and also walked from the farmhouse over the tracks to The Falcon Pub (about an hour uphill on the way, 50 mins down the hill back). Good pub food. Managed to dodge most of the rain and saw plenty of sunshine. The electric charger was a massive plus-thankyou. The children loved the attic playroom/den.
We came to celebrate Mick's 70th birthday- a big year.This house was the perfect way for us- a great family house. Thankyou for the very generous welcome pack- greatly appreciated. We enjoyed the garden for family cricket overlooking the wonderful scenery! The BBQ and hot tub was a real treat. Thirley cotes is the perfect venue for getting to Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, North and South Bays of Scarborough and Filey ( We took in the Wetherby Silver Band). We also took the train from Pickering to Whitby and back-great fish and chips- thankyou for a lovely week!
Fantastic house, really well-equipped and we are very grateful for the travel cot, high chair and stairgate which makes travelling with 2 your children a little easier!
We have loved the hot tub and games room. The girls have enjoyed the spacious garden and the playground.
We are already looking to rebook so are looking forward to seeing the new cottages finished. Thank you for the lovely welcome pack, it was much appreciated.
We've had brilliant weather this week so enjoyed the beach at Scarborough and Filey and had nice days in Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay.
Thank you for a fantastic holiday. Beautiful cottage, fantastic area and surroundings. Couldn't of asked for anything else!
Everything you could think of was provided, hot tub lovely and relaxing.
Beds soo comfy.
Loved watching the cows coming up the field everyday all in a line.
Thank you for the welcome pack (lovely touch)
Hollie says thank you for the ball and treats, she has loved her stay.
Fabulous house, beds so comfy. Hot tub relaxing and wonderful.
Couldn't have asked for more.
Thank you for such a lovely stay, the house and surroundings are stunning! Good for the soul!
We went to Scarborough, Whitby, Staithes and York. Peasholm Park feeding the squirrels. The welcome pack was also a lovely touch
We don't want to leave, we want to squat, this house is so beautiful!
Lovely touch with the welcome pack for the humans and doggie!
Gorgeous views everyday from the garden. In our honest eyes you deserve 8 star!
Its been an absolute pleasure and honour to stay here
Extremely well appointed farmhouse - wanted for nothing.
Fabulous welcome pack was much appreciated.
Glorious sunshine for exploring the countryside, left no time to enjoy the hot tub and games room.
WOW, what a wonderful weekend - the best ever -
1. Fantastic house -want to buy it please - done the lottery
2. Fantastic location - great for days out and vegging around
3 Fantastic Company - lots of fun in the hot tub and around the house
So relaxing and just what we all needed after working hard looking after the rest of the world.
Woody says thanks for the dog treats and slippers - he ate them all!!
Fire was lovely - hot tub and view was stunning - saw the resident barn owl and the stars and the men in tights (Tour de Yorkshire)
Needles to say we will be back same time next year please might even let others know how awesome it is!!
We came to celebrate 40th birthdays and what a perfect house and location to do just that! Our children are between 8 and 15 and they were all happily entertainedfor the whole week with the games room upstairs and the communal games room on site.
The hot tub was lovely and if you time it right you can watch the sun setting with a glass of prosecco ! - Perfect!
We went on a couple of days out - Whitby, Dalby Forest and Alpamare Water park (Scarborough) all highly recommended.
Very clean, very well equipped - we will definitely be back!
Lovely visit. Nice welcome and everything very tasteful. Hot Tub is a nice touch.
We liked the attention to detail. This is a beautiful part of the world. Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay were really nice. The games room is a nice touch and also enjoyed
the table tennis in the communal games room.
Thanks for a really nice visit.
What a beautiful cottage - stunning views - beautiful interiors!
We enjoyed a very chilled week here and enjoyed every minute including the hot tub (which was a great added bonus!)
Beautiful surrounding including Scarborough and Whitby. Stunning property with loads of space for everyone. My two boys particularly enjoyed the games room at the top of the house.
We will definitely return soon. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
What an amazing house! We never wanted to leave! The house itself is fantastic and the facilities are second to none. The welcome basket was an amazing touch and something we were not expecting. This house has kept everyone happy from 8 - 68 year olds and we have all had a great time.
WOW! Christmas is a tough time in out household - both boys have Autism! We decided after a disastrous Christmas last year we would book a holiday! and here we are...…
We have had the most amazing time and the boys slept (a first). The property is stunning with lots of space for a quiet time when is all gets overwhelming. We never really left the house other than a food shop, have walks and enjoy the hot tub!
Favourites were the wood burner and the amazing kitchen! We will be back thank you for the best Christmas in a long time.
P.S. The hamper was an added surprise - many thanks.
Thank you for an amazing place to stay. We had an amazing few days here. The house was lovely and the views are stunning. We had everything we needed for our stay and the staff were very welcoming - nothing was too much trouble.
We will definitely be back!
Enjoyed an excellent time with our family here in this lovely house - everything we needed and more. Hot tub, wonderful views of the barn owl and Canadian Geese.
For children the 'naval battles' in Peasholm Park, Scarborough are a must but only on certain afternoons
Had a great holiday in a lovely house. We were lucky with the weather and all enjoyed morning and evening dips in the hot tub!
The kids all enjoyed the games room.
Highlights were Robin Hoods Bay, Whitby and Scarborough, oh and the teenagers loved the shopping outlet in York!
What a week! Fantastic holiday, beautiful house with great facilities, beautiful views etc. Whitby great, Robin Hoods Bay fantastic. Lovely walk up the road to the left of the house, and watching the cows graze is relaxing - recommend. Thanks for a great week.
We returned following a long weekend in November. We couldn't have wished for a better week weather wise. Badminton and the hot tub kept us entertained outside. It lived up to our expectations again. The dogs are going home for a rest. Thank you.
What a lovely place to spend our family holiday!
A beautiful farmhouse with amazing views and a fantastic hot tub.
The girls aged 5, 3 & 6 moths have loved the games room, play area and great garden space.
The grown ups have enjoyed sitting in the hot tub watching the barn owl and the kestrel.
On rainy days films in the games room have been enjoyed. We had a great day at Playdale Farm, visits to Scarborough and Bridlington were a must. Great Fish and Chips, great ice cream and great paddling in the sea.
The farmhouse has met our needs perfectly and we would definately recommend to others
Thank you for a really lovely week!
Had a wonderful week in Yorkshire and a luxury life for one week. Hard to leave!
Beautiful location with stunning views of the countryside. Waking up in the morning with the sound of the wildlife. Peaceful and a key location
for a relaxing break away with access to different towns, it is easy to commute and get out of the cottage.
The hot tub is amazing! Warm and with views you can sit and watch all day.
Owners were friendly and hold a warming manner that is easy to get along with. The wi-fi was easy to connect to and communicate with people at home.
Nice and happy stay here at the Farmhouse.
A stunning location and a beautiful house. When we arrived we were thrilled by all of the excellent accommodation - and we have watched a magnificent barn owl, wagtails and a badger sett in the field opposite the Farmhouse and countless other wonderful features. Thank you so much - we will definitely be returning to Thirley Cotes. An absolute gem.
Wow! What an amazing place for both adults and children alike. The house is amazing and finished to a very high standard. Children loved being so close to the sheep and able to have their own independence on the games room floor. The views are stunning, wish we could wake up to them, every morning! Safe to say that each and everyone of us have loved it and I'm sure we will be back. Thank you.
What a fantastic place to enjoy a girls weekend. Amazing location with spectacular views.
Highly maintained cottage with everything we need. We were welcomed with a tray of goodies which went down a treat.
The whole place is luxurious. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub! Everywhere was immaculate. We all can't wait to come again!!
As the family is spread out throughout the UK, we selected the farmhouse for a get together.
We couldn't be happier with the place - fantastic facilities, sparklingly clean rooms and an amazing hot tub.
We got lucky with the weather too. Great location as we are fairly close to Whitby, Scarborough and Scalby.
Beautiful part of the world - five stars!!
Thank you so much.
To celebrate my wife's big 70th birthday, we took the Farmhouse, Sycamore and Oak Cottages which perfectly housed our family of 10 and 12 close friends. Ages ranged between 78 and 4 months! We have had a wonderful weekend, in this splendid location. We cannot speak highly enough of the quality of all the accommodation, and everyone was very impressed with these marvellous facilities and most took advantage of the hot tubs - very relaxing!
The reception staff are very friendly and helpful and we could not have chosen a better location. We even had beautiful weather. Absolutely fabulous!
Many congratulations to the owners and staff, they couldn't have provided anything more, for their guests
We came for our annual family holiday and had an amazing time, despite the weather. The hot tub and games room really helped with this, but we also enjoyed watching the sheep and building shelters in the wood. We also visited Dalby Forest, Filey and Ravenscar which held fond memories from our childhood.
Thank you for such a luxurious and well-equipped holiday base.

What a lovely place and a great venue to bring the family, first class facilities, wonderful location with helpful staff. We felt totally at home and relaxed and hope to return in the future. Brilliant hot tub, spent a lot of time in it ! Thank you so much.
A wonderful weekend with parents, children and grandchildren, Thirley Cotes Farm did not disappoint, kitchen superbly equipped, hot tub kept the girls busy whilst the boys used the games room. Scenery is superb especially watching the stars at night, would love to say again, thank you so much.
As a group of friends, we spend a long weekend away each year. Thirley Cotes farmhouse is perfect, pet friendly providing everything we need including the hot tub
fully stocked kitchen is a godsend and beautifully decorated. The views are spectacular and location ideal, stunning countryside and a short drive to the coast. We would love to stay again, a massive thank you to the owners who couldn't have done enough for us , we cannot recommend Thirley Cotes highly enough .
'Wow' is all i can say ! stunning location with amazing views. The house is finished to such a high standard we have loved staying there. We are now all trading in our double beds for super kings ! the staff were so helpful and friendly , we couldn't have asked for more.
Amazing location, beautiful property, great days out nearby Whitby, Dalby forest & Robin Hoods Bay. It's been a privilege to be the first to stay here, would love to come again one day.
