Reviews

Good location, very welcoming hosts and it was great to be able to see and bottle feed some of the lambs. There were also cows, hens, horses and a couple of friendly dogs. The accommodation was good and it was very handy for walking into Ripley.

We were warmly welcomed to Birchwood Stable Cottage by Kate and Pat, where we stayed for 2 weeks. The cottage was immaculately clean, spacious and very comfortable. It is well equipped with everything one could need in a self catering cottage. Being perfectly located between Harrogate and Ripon, it allows for easy exploration of North Yorkshire. A bus service runs from the nearby village of Ripley every 20 minutes. The views across the meadows were superb. We soon made good friends with Pearl, the great Clydesdale Mare, who came for a chat every time we returned. After a day out, we looked forward to returning "home" to a peaceful, quiet and tranquil haven. We soon settled into daily farm life, by bottle feeding the lambs, placing hay and collecting eggs. Although Kate works like a trojan on the farm, she was never too busy to answer our questions on the area and Birchwood Farm, as well as give advice on local attractions and great places to eat. This is truly one of the best self catering cottages we've stayed in and is highly recommended. We can't wait to return "home" soon to once again experience true Yorkshire hospitality!

Fantastic cottage. Cosy and warm, just what you need for a relaxing holiday. The owners were lovely and let us look around the farm and feed the lambs and we would definitely stay again.
