05. testimonials

Rebekah Nelson-Stanley, May 2021: "We have recently come back from Beech Farm and we can't wait to go back again. Every time we go it is even better than the time we stayed before. We have 3 children (14, 5 and 8 month) and my parents and it suits everybody. From the superfast WiFi for teens to the amazing playroom for smaller ones, topped off with the pool and animal feeding, petting and egg collecting it really is some where special to spend time with your family.

The cottages are perfectly placed for some fabulous days out and we keep finding new places to visit, however we also stayed on site for a day this time and the kids loved it. 

Everything is well thought out with children's essentials provided such as stair gates, cots and cutlery. There is even a little shop in the laundry with essentials including swimming nappies and normal nappies in case you forget or get caught short.

The cottages are finished to a high standard and super comfortable, honestly the beds are a dream! We have stayed before Covid and with Covid restrictions and we still had the same great experience despite the necessary changes and felt comfortable and safe. The rotas for the pool and animals worked really well, not missing out on anything.

Kirsty and Graham have surpassed themselves in ensuring family memories can be made. I could go on and on as we are yet to find a fault when staying, I will top it off by saying the team are fantastic and have already booked to come back.

If you are wanting an amazing UK break look no further.

Hbergg, May 2021: "The perfect place for young families. High quality, well maintained, well-equipped, spotless accommodation on the perfect site with plenty of things to keep the kids happy (swimming pool, playground, play room, farm animals with regular feeding sessions), in a beautiful part of Yorkshire."

Martha1975, May 2021: "We have just returned from a fantastic week at Beech Farm cottages with our two young children. The cottages are perfect for a family holiday with so many great facilities on site to keep the children entertained."

Explorer555619, April 2021: "What a fabulous place. I’ve just returned from a week’s stay at Beech Farm, and I have to say that it’s the best holiday rental that my family and I have ever had. The facilities for children are outstanding, and the cottages are beautiful and spotless. The beds and bedding are upmarket hotel standard, and the cottage that we stayed in was extremely well appointed.
