I am a farmers wife and ex nurse. I live on the farm so am always at hand when you need any extra information or help.
Really enjoyed our stay, the barns are converted to a very high standard with large social areas. The underfloor heating made everything feel very cosy too. Our host Liz was very friendly and helpful and will certainly come back to explore the area further.
The Stables, is an amazing place to stay, its 45 mins from the beautiful historic town of York. The cottage is modern, clean and totally amazing. Liz is an excellent host, left milk and biscuits for us so we didnt have to run out straight away. We thoroughly recommend the cottage if you wish to get a weekend away or go for longer its the perfect place.
We had an absolutely fantastic week long stay at Manor Farm, and Liz's cottage proved to be the perfect base for exploring the surrounding towns and countryside. The cottage itself was incredibly comfortable, and was toasty warm from start to finish. The underfloor heating, dvd player (and assorted dvds), cd player, wifi, washing machine and dishwasher ensured we were more than comfortable, and made the occasional rainy day quite luxurious and relaxing!
The cottage's location is superb, nestled in the heart of the countryside and very quiet both during the day and at night. It is only a 3 minute walk from a really lovely local pub, and there are many footpaths in around the local area if you are keen walkers. Liz was a very welcoming and informative host, and made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived.
Overall we had a brilliant stay, and will 100% be returning in the future. Thank you Liz!
Had a 4 day stay at Liz's cottage. It is absolutely lovely, in a tiny village. The cottage is very spacious and highly recommended. It is a short drive from York and lots of other local attractions. Liz was an excellent host, very flexible with check in times and also leaving us bread and milk. If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay then this cottage is perfect.
What a fantastic place to stay. Liz was very welcoming and made us feel at home. The cottage was clean and very spacious. It was the perfect place for visiting all the local tourist interests. We used it as a base for York, Whitby and the local area. We only wish we had spent more time there as we loved it. Thank-you so much Liz. We will definitely come back again.
We visited Liz's beautiful countryside cottage and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Liz made sure we had everything we needed and we very much appreciated the BBQ so we could sit outside on the patio taking in the fantastic scenery. The cottage is very spacious, has lovely furnishings, comfy beds and little extras like an ipod docking station and a selection of DVDs. The location is great - feels like you are in the middle of nowhere but you are not at all. There is a tescos, coop and town with quaint little shops a short drive away (walking distance) and york is close. There is also a pub 100yards down the road!
We hope to visit again next year!
We were looking for a cottage near York for three nights and found Liz's other cottage which was unavailable. Liz replied almost immediately that this cottage was available and be more suitable for us it had an open plan living/dining/kitchen area.
Beautifully furnished cottage. A wet room, family bathroom and an en suite to the master bedroom which meant everyone had their own facilities which made our two children very happy. The three bedrooms were a good size and very comfortable. The open plan living area was very spacious and well equipped. My son was very happy that there was wifi available.
The village of Goodmanham is very quiet and small. Everything you might need is in the small town of nearby Market Weighton, restaurants, takeaways, asda , tesco.
York is about 40 minutes drive away. We used the Park and ride on both days we drove there. Use the Designer Outlet park and ride if you want to clothes shop as well as sightseeing!
Great cottage, beautiful location, kids didn't want to leave. Liz also posted a t-shirt back to us that my daughter left behind, which was very kind. We would recommend the cottage to anyone that wants a very comfortable base to visit the area.
Le logement était spacieux confortable et très bien équipé. Il correspondait parfaitement à nos attentes au milieu de la campagne anglaise. Nous avons été bien accueilli par Liz qui nous avait même déjà mis de la nourriture au réfrigérateur pour notre petit déjeuner.
We spent a wonderful few days in Liz's beautiful converted barn. The accommodation is of a very high standard and seems even more spacious than in the photographs. The views over the Yorkshire countryside are stunning and the situation right on the Wolds Way is excellent for exploring on foot. The historic city of York is nearby as are other interesting places to visit. This is a great place to stay for a short beak or longer holiday and we would recommend it to other couples or families. Thank you Liz for your hospitality and we hope to return in future.
Loved the place. Great for 2 couples. Liz is very helpful and would highly recommend this place for anyone.
