Very comfortable, and owners very helpful
Peaceful, cosy, spacious garden and well situated to explore the surrounding area.
It was a pleasure to meet 3 generations of the family. They enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the farm, the children loved romping about in the garden, feeding carrots to the horses and then family walks seeing the spring flowers. Much excitement when the ewes and tiny lambs arrived. The WIFI proved a get asset, also the green tourism file and files of all the local attractions.
A perfect area for cycling, the bicycles were safely stores in the lockable garage.
Grandpa said there is so much to do and not enough time to do all the interesting things in the area. They found time to cycles to Richmond, eight miles away - they enjoyed the beautiful views from the sitting room windows and the lovely sunsets - you can also see the sunrises if you are about early enough!
Lovely location - warm welcome.
The location was perfect for us almost equidistant between the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors. Great for scenic visits and long or short walks. Only a short drive to the nearest town for shops and petrol - Northallerton, an attractive market town with good shops and restaurants/cafes.
The property was comfortable, clean, well maintained - everything was easy to use. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were table and chairs outside which we used in the amazing weather we had. There were fresh flowers on our arrival.
The bungalow is on a lovely farm which has many footpaths to explore for short walks. It is in fact on the coast to coast path.
The owners were very welcoming and helpful.
Greatly enjoyed by 3 generations of the family. The sun is shining, the corn turning golden and the berries ripening. the birds are singing, this year we have masses of swallows - I have seen an owl carrying a mouse! also a pair of wrens near the house. The cock pheasant is protecting his hen, who will have chicks in the long grass.
The lambs look very well & the cows with their calves.
Kiplin Hall has some fun activities including the Canterbury Tales, Thorpe Perrow has an Abba concert.
Thirsk has several race meeting in the near future. James Herriots home town - the museum is the veterinary surgery where he practiced as a vet. Losts of activities are planned at the Sutton Bank visitors centre. The local agricultural shows take place in June, July, August and September all great fun.
August is Scorton Feast with 5 days of fun, a gymkhana, trotting, village cricket, the brass band on the village green, sports, fancy dress and the flower and produce tent.
Do not forget the autumn colours, the wonderful skies, sunsets and sun rises. See the heather on your drives over the moor.
A beautiful cottage which has everything you need
This cottage is so perfect for a relaxing holiday. It is clean and spacious for a family to stay in. The children loved helping Mary on her farm and visiting her friend to see her animals. There are so many places to visit nearby or walks around the cottage.
None of us wanted to leave and we are looking forward to staying again.
Everyone had such fun, discovering new things about the countryside - visiting historic Richmond and the Castle - stroking the pony, seeing my garden, the sheep and heifers also finding Odd Job. Lots of lovely walks were made in the tranquil country, yet close to lovely villages and market towns.
Two weeks peace and quiet in North Yorkshire
It certainly was nt 'Friday the 13th' when we moved into Stanghow Bungalow!
Having lived locally for some time, and more recently suffered the turmoil of the upgrading of the A1 with night time closures ,diversions and HGV's pounding past our front door at all times of the day and night, the fact that builders had moved in to extend our kitchen and add a bedroom, meant we had to find alternative accomodation for a couple of weeks,and resulted in us moving into the bungalow.
Set on a working farm the bungalow is close to everywhere, yet seemingly in a remote part of North Yorkshire.The Dales, the Moors and the Coast are all on your doorstep- and importantly for us Northallerton, Darlington and all major transport routes are close by.
The bungalow itself I would imagine was previously a farm workers cottage, and now has been updated to include all mod-cons -including wifi, yet retaining the retro appearance of days gone by.
Landlady Mary is on hand to provide answers to all your questions- and a whole lot more.Most of the answers can actually be found in an abundance of literature in the lounge.
We were blessed with good weather-the sunsets could well be the best in Britain!...and all round we had a very enjoyable stay...revitalised to return home to our building site and start tidying up!.
Delightful guests who thorough enjoyed all that Stanhow Bungalow has to offer, being warm, comfortable and convenient with lovely views. Indeed I now have a marvellous photograph of the sunset taken from the sitting room window. Stanhow is indeed central for the Yorkshire Dales and Yorkshire Moors and close to the markets towns of Richmond and Northallerton, in all a perfect peaceful location.
The blossom on the trees is wonderful to see and the birds are singing. Our barn owl family are happy too.
It is very perfect place to recharge your batteries! Our guests who left to-day said they would come again next year.
Exactly what we needed !!!
Having flown half way around the world from a very troubled region in a cramped and smelly aeroplane it was pleasurable beyond description to drive from Durham Tees valley airport through a wonderfully green late North Yorkshire summer.
Stopping briefly in Northallerton to stock up on goodies from the outstanding Mssrs Lewis & Cooper we arrived to a genuinely friendly, yet practical and organized, welcome at Stanhow just after midday. Flash to bang the entire business from landing on the runway at Teesdide to arriving at the bungalow with bags of food and bottles of vino had taken barely an hour. A truly great start to our stay.
Stanhow bungalow is an unpretentious little dwelling which is easy to live in, easy to keep clean and extremely practical with a good sized ‘living kitchen’ and childishly comfortable beds. The garden is suitably secluded and a very pleasant spot to spend an hour with a book on a fine afternoon.
Between arriving from the Middle East and traveling to the frantic crazy hustle of busy London we sought a place, for a week, which could be a physical reminder of how pleasant, calm and civilized life can be, an oasis of common sense and stability. Nowhere but nowhere could have met our needs as acutely as Stanhow. The place is wonderful.
Within striking distance of some excellent pubs with great ale Stanhow is also handy for the A1, A19 and spectacular walking country. Whether a busy and hyper-organised formal tourist or a lazy emotional sloth who just wants to hide from the stress of a busy life ……….. Stanhow is perfect.
We strongly recommend this lovely, quiet, sensible little corner of gods own county and will without question return as often as fate allows.
