    We had a lovely time at Birdforth Hall, very comfortable, very warm, most of the bedrooms were spacious. The icing on the cake was of course the pool!



    out of 10

    We really enoyed staying at Birdforth Hall, it is perfect for large families to get together. The swimming pool was great and the pool rota is a really good idea. Decor is traditional and a little tired in places and we only had one plug for three baths but the rooms are huge and the dining table wonderful for family dinners seating 18. The benefits far outweigh these small problems and we would definitely go again.

    A brilliant house for a special get together. Our only disappointment was there was not enough kitchen equipment to cook for a large number. Over all a great weekend. Thankyou.

    Great space inside and out and fantastic value for money.

    Excellent property for a large family or group of friends. Not everyone gets an en-suite room but all rooms are a decent size (some are massive!) and the two shared bathrooms are easily accessed by the rooms using them. It’s a bit tired decoration wise but everything was clean, the linen was crisp and clean and the bath towels were bright white and were huge! Kitchen could be better equipped, one of the kettles didn’t work. Plenty of crockery and knives and forks but not enough spoons!!! Great to have a wood burner, heating worked well but came on too early in morning and went off too early in the evening - no way for us to adjust that! Loads of hot water. Swimming pool was a great hit! Would come back again with a group.



    out of 10

    Kitchen equipment was very poor for a house to service 16. Bathrooms were very dated and ours in particular had cracked and peeling paint. Bedrooms were huge but all a bit dated and in need of a refurb. Found pens, cigarette lighters, hen party sash and loads of crumbs and bits in and under lounge furniture. No bike store as was advertised. Would have been nice to at least have been left some basic supplies for arrival - even just a pint of milk.



    out of 10

    Great place - we are a group of friends with young children who meet annually for a get-together. this was a perfect venue for this. Kids & adults all enjoyed the space, the pool and the garden. thank you.



    out of 10

    A great cottage for a family break. Loads of space, big rooms and bedrooms. Most are en-suite. Main and secondary kitchens are good for food preparation and extra fridge space. Big secluded garden to play or relax in, though there’s some road noise that might bother some people. Good location for the various places to visit around Thirsk, Ripon and York, though you’ll definitely need a car (it’s also about a 10-15 min drive to the nearest shops). Would stay there again.
