A Gorgeous weekend at Cherrygarth Cottages
When asked to review The Haybarn in Fryton, Slingsby, North Yorkshire by [Gorgeous Weekend](http://gorgeousweekend.com/? target=) we were not prepared for the splendour to come.
Five of the Daisy Green team headed to York and found our way to The Haybarn, one of the Cherrygarth Cottages luxury holiday cottages. It was pitch dark when we arrived at 7pm. Upon opening the doors our jaws dropped and not a sound, not even a pin drop could be heard.
It was truly magnificent.
We all headed off in different directions to explore the vast space.
There are four bedrooms and the photographs really don’t do them justice. The room I selected had a mezzanine bathroom with a sky light directly over the bath to watch the twinkly stars above. I was a little antisocial for a while as I drew the bath, filled with UK brand Molton Brown bubble bath and luxuriated in peace.
The other ladies took it upon themselves to explore the outdoor facilities and gave the hot tub and sauna a big thumbs up. There’s also a games room filled with lots of things to keep people of every age entertained.
After the bathing it was time for dinner, albeit a late one, so we all gathered around the lovely kitchen table and prepped, cooked, drank wine (a bottle was already chilling in the fridge) and talked. Everything you could possibly need from a kitchen was right there.
If you didn’t feel like cooking though there was a great file with honest reviews of local pubs and eateries. The appliances in the kitchen were UK made too, Stoves and Dualit.
With glasses in hand we headed to the lounge were we lit the fire (already prepared for us) and talked some more. The sofa was huge with enough room for everyone.
Time for Bedfordshire came upon us quickly and we all went off to our rooms, rather reluctantly. All the bedrooms were sumptous but, which one to choose though? The seemingly largest room with the vaulted ceiling and wet room, bed two with mezzanine bathroom, bed three with jacuzzi bath, walk in shower and mezzanine lounge area or bed four (mine all mine) with the second mezzanine bathroom? The beds were so, so cosy that we all found it difficult to wake in the morning.
For breakfast we devoured the food basket filled with cereal, eggs and bread. Yummy!
Outside, each cottage has a quiet, sheltered, south-facing courtyard garden with patio and barbecue area. The courtyards have been creatively landscaped to provide privacy for each cottage but, alas we couldn’t make use of the outside space as it was a dark and miserable November morn.
This accommodation is great for friends and family alike and you’d never feel on top of each other. You can even choose to use separate entrances as there’s one situated next to the formal dining area and a second off the lounge. The Haybarn easily sleeps 8 and there is plenty of room in each of the bedrooms for travel cots, too.
Places to visit locally include; Castle Howard, historic York and Scarborough beaches.
