Fabulous cottage, lots of lovely personal touches which are so thoughtful and elevate this from a holiday cottage to a home away from home. I can see myself returning many times. First class in every respect. Thank you.Ms Helen Cheers - 7th September 2015
Beautiful holiday cottage in s stunning location. Highly recommended!Mr A Smy - 31st August 2015
The quality of the accommodation was fantastic. Upon arrival we had milk,tea/coffee, biscuits, chocolates & sweets for the children - these were a great unexpected bonus which we valued very much. There was only one negative point, which was the poor internet connection. Not sure if this can be rectified but it did not distract us from our enjoyable stay. A lovely couple who own the place & made us feel welcome. Loved Yorkshire - would return to the area because it was a great place to exploreMr Brett Macklin - 13th August 2015
Home from home, everything is catered for.Mr M Ward - 28th June 2015
We had a wonderful week at The Stable at Esk Hall Farm. The cottage was cosy, bright, clean and a home away from home. We had everything we needed. We absolutely loved the location, there was so much to see and do and the scenery was amazing. The Stable has been my favourite cottage so far on our trip. The owner clearly puts a lot of thought and care into the dÃƒÂ©cor and furnishings, and it was immaculately clean and smelled nice too. We give The Stable a 10/10 - a gorgeous, interesting, character-filled cottage in a spectacular location. We didn't want to leave!Mrs M Norris - 12th May 2015
