Our 2021 in Holiday Cottage Guest Reviews!

Posted on Tags , , , , , , ,

The past year has certainly had its ups and downs, and will probably be a year that sticks in most people’s memory for years to come! But even with the pandemic still causing disruption around the world things were able to get back to some form of normality with people going back to work and businesses able to open their doors once more! Including ourselves who once again were able to welcome guests back into our holiday cottages and to our wedding venue. With the end of the year looming we thought it would be great to do our last blog showing you the lovely holiday cottage guest reviews we’ve received for 2021!

Holiday Cottage Guest Reviews
Minster Lodge

‘My son and partner stayed here in between moving properties and thought the cottage and surroundings were beautiful.
The cottage was well kept and comfortable and the location to shops etc excellent.
Would definitely recommend it.’ – Wendy, Blossom Cottage, Jan 2021

‘Thanks for having us stay for 2 weeks. Blossom Cottage was just right again. Spacious, clean, comfy, well equipped, well located for our stay near York, quiet, space to wander around the lake and fields. Just what we needed, thanks!’ – Michelle, Blossom Cottage, April 2021

‘Everything lovely and clean, a bonus of washing up liquid, dishcloths etc, staff really friendly, good COVID restrictions in place, all in all, an excellent stay many thanks’ – Julie, Melrose Cottage, May 2021

Pheasant Rise

‘We had a fabulous time. Staff were brilliant leading up to the weekend with updates constantly due to restrictions. They went out of their way to give us a fab weekend during a stressful time. Beautiful big spacious area and cottages.’ – Karen, Jorvik Cottage, June 2021

‘We had Ebor cottage booked for my daughter’s hen weekend it’s an amazing place, loads of room we were lucky enough to get the cottage next door also as we were a group of 12 and due to Covid ruling we could only have 6 in each cottage
Everything you needed was there we ordered Ziggy’s Silent Disco and Louisiana mobile cocktail making to come to the cottage
Loads of outdoor space and the 2 hot tubs were perfect can’t recommend enough will definitely be returning’ – Karen, Ebor Cottage, June 2021

‘The cottage was lovely and clean with comfortable beds and had everything we needed. Staff were on hand to answer any questions.’ – Sarah, Blossom Cottage, June 2021

Jorvik Cottage

‘We stayed in Dante cottage over our wedding weekend.
The cottage was clean, comfortable, and well equipped for our stay.’ – Samantha, Dante Cottage, June 2021

‘Great customer service especially having to re-book twice due to covid. Really accommodating. Received a text when the property was ready, contactless arrival, very clean property with great amenities. Fantastic location would definitely book again’ – Natalie, Roman Cottage, July 2021

Stayed in Minster Lodge, which was fantastic. The staff from the point of booking to leaving the venue were excellent. Fully recommend Villa Farm!!!!’ – Steve, Minster Lodge, Aug 2021

Yorkshire Rose House

‘We stayed at Saxford barn as a group of 7. The property was lovely and clean. Very big and the bedrooms were lovely and comfortable. I would return again and definitely recommend it. Could not fault the stay one bit.’ – Rachel, Saxford Barn, Aug 2021

‘We had an amazing weekend this weekend in Ebor Cottage celebrating our friend’s hen weekend. The house was PERFECT – so much space for all of us and absolutely ideal for our needs. The whole place was spotlessly clean and the beds were so so comfy. The kitchen was huge with loads of room and equipped with all the essentials and more. The outdoor space was great too, it was spacious and clean and tidy and we loved the hot tub! We all had a fantastic time and will definitely recommend Villa Farm to anyone else planning a group getaway in the area. Thank you so much (especially to Caitlin) for all your help in organising us and making us feel safe and secure during both the booking (and changing the booking thanks to covid!) process and the weekend itself. All staff we met with were friendly and helpful and we could not have asked for a better venue!’ – Katie, Ebor Cottage, Sept 2021

‘Visited a couple of years ago and had a great time, decided to come back for my 40th birthday with family and friends and was not disappointed in the slightest. From the moment of enquiry to arrival the whole service was fantastic. Our age range was 2.5yrs to 83yrs and everyone had a great time, amazing surroundings, clean and comfortable and not too far from the city centre if you want to pop in. Couldn’t recommend this venue enough, for all occasions.’ – Scott, Minster Lodge, Sept 2021

Dove Cottage
