Absolutely perfect location. Easy access to Moors, Dales, North and South.
Although a winter holiday there is plenty to do in all the surrounding areas. The Mistal is decorated to a high standard and all your needs are thought of before you arrive, including the welcome pack... wow...
Karen and Jeff are the perfect hosts and we really look forward to returning one day soon.
The Mistal is a superb barn conversion located in beautiful countryside close to Thirsk which is very dog friendly. This is a very special place to stay, a real taste of luxury with so many thoughtful extras it's unbelievable. With 2 fabulous ensuite bedrooms, beautiful kitchen and sitting room with wood burning stove, private patio and parking The Mistal is a fabulous place to stay.
The owners were very welcoming and friendly; we really felt at home and thoroughly enjoyed our break. We will definitely be back very soon.
Special thanks to Karen for her help and kindness when TripAdvisor lost my booking too.
We met my in laws here for a pre Christmas weekend. The house is ideal for two couples with having en suites to both bedrooms. The beds are the comfiest we have slept in for a long time. The house itself is spotlessly clean, nicely furnished and very well equipped. There is a log burner but we didn't need to use it even in December as the house is so warm and cosy. The wifi works well. Other people have said the pub is within walking distance but this may depend on your mobility as my in laws wouldn't have managed it. Plus in winter there are no street lights. The owners were very welcoming as was Tangles (he's just gorgeous). We are hoping to return in the warmer months to take advantage of the outdoor space including the tennis court and perhaps the fishing lake. And Karen you're quite right- Alpaca's would complete the outdoor space. Highly recommended.
My wife and I have been to this property on two occasions, and both times we have had a fantastic stay. We went on the first occasion with our 8 week old son, and again when he was 4 months old. It is a very well furnished open plan accommodation, and newly decorated to a high standard. The beds are large and comfortable, and there is under floor heating along with a log burning fire for good measure!
As you can imagine with a small baby, we only took short trips out and spent lots of time in the cottage, and could find nothing to fault. The owners are really great, and provided us with a cot bed and baby bath which was a great touch. The location is good for Ripon, Harrogate and Thirsk, we also visited Richmond - there's lots to see and do as a result, lots of local attractions nearby.
In all, we would highly recommend this property, I'm sure in summer it'll be great too as there's a tennis court to use and there is a fishing lake being created on the cottages doorstep! In a word: idyllic.
We stayed at The Mistal for a week and it couldn't have been more perfect. It's in a very quiet location yet just a couple of minutes from the A19. The barn itself had everything you would need for your stay. It's been renovated to the highest standard with tasteful furniture and decorative touches. The beds are super comfortable and the showers have plenty of pressure. We loved the wood burner. There is a tennis court for the warmer months and a fishing lake is currently being constructed which I think will be very pretty when finished. We can also recommend the Dog and Gun pub in Knayton which is within walking distance and does great food. Karen and Jeff and their lovely dog Tangles were very welcoming. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
