  • Travelled up to Yorkshire for a few days to visit family, instructions to the farm were great and we arrived to a toasty cottage. Everything we needed was in the cottage...although we only found the games on the morning we left! Bedrooms were perfect, bathroom was spotless, and the views in the morning and evening were stunning. Would highly recommend, really close to Harrogate for sightseeing and shopping, and not far from the Dales. The host Tanya also supplied us with some lemon drizzle cake which was devoured shortly after receiving it!

  • We would highly recommend this lovely cottage! Tanya and David were perfect hosts and very thoughtful when it came to our 3 small children. The children really enjoyed collecting the eggs, having a tour of the farm, playing in the garden and investigating the well stocked toy cupboard!
    We all enjoyed a walk across the fields down to the river as recommended by Dave and visited some v nice local pubs too.
    The cottage was very warm, cosy and well equipped and we would 100% recommend staying here.

    Thank you :-)

  • The trip started well with Tanya asking what age our little boy was to make sure she had toys for him - far beyond what we expected! We then had a wonderful weekend at Cowslip Farm Cottage! Everything was spot on. Very comfortable beds, everything we needed was provided and there were some great little touches - scones and milk when we arrived and a tour of the farm. Tanya even created a special sign for our litle boy's room with his name on it, which he loved! Even the bad weather didn't matter as we had a cupboard full of toys and a wii console to keep us amused. A big thank you to Tanya and David for making us feel so welcome. We will definitely be back!

  • If Carlsberg did holiday cottages this is what they would be like. Wonderful, cosy but very spacious cottage, extremely well equipped, spotlessly clean, genuinely friendly and welcoming hosts in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. Tanya has thought of everything to enable a happy, easy and comfortable stay.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Cowslip cottage. Tanya was most helpful and a welcoming letter with homemade scones and jam were waiting for us on our arrival. My son and daughter in law from Brisbane Australia were with us and they were most impressed. We were able to visit Harrogate, Knaresborough and York all being fairly nearby. The cottage had numerous leaflets giving information on places to visit. We loved meeting Tanya and David. They could not have been more welcoming. We loved the log fire and the well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Thank you.

  • Cowslip Cottage was an ideal weekend getaway for our group of 7. It was cosy, well-equipped and perfectly located: close to Harrogate and easy to get to by car or train. Tanya was a thoughtful host, and always easy to get hold of. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily stay again.

  • Only had time for a short 2 night stay in Cowslip Cottage...wonderful large lounge area for relaxing...quite steep stairs to upstairs bedroom & bathroom, but great views over the farmland with the grazing cows nearby & lovely sunrises...arrived in the dark but luckily Tanya had emailed us detailed directions...friendly welcome from David...welcome basket with biscuits & jam plus fresh milk in the fridge for the first cuppa...wonderful amount of tourist information which made it easy for planning our outings...dropped in at the "Cookshop" at Knaresborough so we could meet Tanya...wonderful location for exploring nearby places & great to come "home" to the peacefulness of the farm at the end of each day.

  • Great place, on a working farm, but on the edge of the village close to amenities. Tanya is a great host and communicator, we felt very much at home. The accommodation had all we were looking for. Great views across the fields, wonderful sunrise and sunsets with the happy cows milling in the background.

    Welcome pack was lovely. Joy wants the recipe for the cookies!

    Shame we only had a couple of nights, hindsight is a wonderful thing!

Cooking Fantastic (cookshop), Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, England
Hi, my name is Tanya, I am married to the lovely David. We live on our dairy farm in a village called Killinghall just outside Harrogate with our two lovely dogs and lots of cows! We have two holiday cottages and a campsite on our farm which we call The Cud Life. I have a cookshop called Cooking Fantastic which I have just moved to the farm which was in the pretty picturesque market town of Knaresborough for 10 years. We love to welcome families and individuals and are happy to show guests around the farm whilst they are here and provide plenty of local information for those who want to explore beautiful North Yorkshire.
