“The Mistal - What a wonderful place to stay”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2018

My wife and I, together with her elderly Uncle and Aunt, had the very great pleasure of staying at The Mistal from 26th May to 2nd June 2018. On our arrival we were greeted by Karen and Jeff, the owners, who showed us around the property. It was the first time we had stayed here and certainly exceeded our expectations. It was spotlessly clean, very well decorated and furnished, with the lovely added touch of a well stocked hamper to help us settle in. One of the reasons that we chose this location was that we felt it would be ideal for travelling both through the Yorkshire Moors and the Dales and we couldn't have chosen a better spot. Karen and Jeff were so friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. What a lovely couple they are. The peace and quiet of the location was also appreciated and if you like to wake up to the sound of birds singing in the morning rather than the cough and splutter of car engines, then this really has to be the place for you. Jeff is currently in the process of renovating additional areas of the farm as holiday lettings and his attention to detail is second to none. If you are looking for a peaceful break in a quiet location and in a holiday property that is extremely well maintained and cared for with the added benefit of being very convenient for travelling through the Yorkshire Moors and Dales then this is the place for you. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and encourage anyone to give it a try. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

“A warm welcome awaits at this fabulous property in a great location”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2018

Along with my daughters and grandson I've just returned from a wonderful 4 night break in North Yorkshire staying in Karen and Jeff's fabulous barn conversion. This stunning property on a quiet lane in beautiful countryside offers every comfort you could possibly need and more. It's furnished very tastefully, has a lovely well equipped kitchen, great ensuite bathrooms and a cosy log fire. My seven year old grandson had lots to interest him with horses, tennis court and play equipment just outside the door. The highlight for him was being shown how to fish in the well stocked lake. Thank you Jeff. The location is brilliant for the North Yorks Moors or the Dales and despite the rainy weather we found lots to do for all the family. We can highly recommend the local pub, the Dog & Gun. Many thanks Karen and Jeff for all those extra touches including the fabulous welcome hamper. We look forward to our next visit.

“Stunning barn in beautiful location.”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2017

We are a family of 4. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom barn was wonderful accommodation for our half term break. Everything was squeaky clean when we arrived, and we received a lovely starter hamper to get us going. Karen and Jeff are great hosts, very good communications. The barn is on a working equine farm, so your children will be welcomed to visit the horses. One look on google will confirm that this property is in a fantastic location for the Yorkshire Dales, York and many other attractive market towns. In summary, this is a great holiday home.

“Outstanding Property & Wonderful Host”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2017

2nd stay at this location. The Granary and this visit The Mistral. Property is outstanding and finished to high specification, home from home. If you are a cyclist this is a perfect location and there is secure bike storage also hose pipe for cleaning bikes. Great for both road and mountain bikes. The perfect hosts Karen & Jeff, nothing is to much trouble to ensure our stay was the best. Last but not least the 3rd member host Tangles the dog, she has the perfect temperament when greeting guests. We will be back again soon.

“Incredible property with stunning views in a tranquil rural setting”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2017

My wife & I stayed at The Mistal for five nights. This is 5 star accommodation on a 12 acre farm in a beautiful rural setting and even has a lake with over 6000 fish! Very comfortable beds, private secure parking 5 feet from the entrance to the cottage and two sets of outside tables and chairs to catch the sun where you can just relax. Tennis court also just outside before the stables. Ideally located just outside the village of Knayton which is approx a 10 min drive from the charming market town of Thirsk (Tesco open until midnight, we would recommend the Thai (Racha) and Indian (Henna) restaurants if you like spicy food) and 30 mins from York. Ideal location to tour the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks and surrounding areas. This is one of four cottages (Jeff is still working on the last two) that has all the mods cons from underfloor heating to soft closing drawers in the kitchen and the latest bathroom fixtures. The attention to detail really shows and we had a very nice welcome pack on arrival. This coupled with the help, advice and friendliness from Karen & Jeff (and Tangles the friendly resident dog!) who go out of their way to make sure your stay is a comfortable and memorable one. Jeff gave us a tour of his retirement project which is daunting for most people as he is a perfectionist. We did a similar project, albeit smaller, in Mexico where we now live so know the challenges they must have faced. What we wished that could have been better: Absolutely nothing. Our regret: Not having booked a longer stay at this beautiful property. Our advice: Book this property, you will not regret your decision. Thank you Karen & Jeff for sharing your beautiful property with us and the conversation & laughs we shared on our last night at The Carpenters Arms! We hope to be back some day when we are in this part of the world to see your Alpacas!

“Absolutely fabulous”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2017

Superb barn conversion in lovely surroundings. A perfect place to relax and unwind. A perfect location to explore the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside.The accommodation is finished to a very high standard. It's beautiful, spacious and very comfortable . Jeff & Karen are fantastic hosts and have thought of everything to ensure a perfect stay. The hamper full of lovely goodies was a wonderful surprise when we arrived. We will definitely be returning.

“Exceptional quality barn, which exceeded all expectations”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2017

Our hosts, Karen and Jeff, could not have been more helpful. The quality of the barn and the surroundings are outstanding. You will want for nothing and the little "welcome basket" reflected the quality of the accommodation. We will be booking again for later in the year.


Reviewed 28 Mar 2017

This was the second time we have stayed at the Mistal and both occasions have been excellent. The property is simply stunning. It is beautifully finished, includes everything you might need and is spotlessly clean. The surrounding areas are lovely as are the views from the property. The owners are wonderful - very friendly and on hand if you should need anything. We will no doubt stay again in the future.

“Our February Break”

Reviewed 15 Feb 2017

We planned a little get away just before February half term. Sadly the weather was not the best but this did not detract from our enjoyment at the Mistal. The Mistal is ideally placed for visiting the Yorkshire Dales and Western part of the Yorkshire Moors. We arrived to a very warm welcome and were very impressed by the high standard of finish throughout the barn. We were very comfortable and cosy for the duration of our stay and would definitely return and highly recommend this to others.
