Description from owner


NO BOOKING FEE The Mistal is a recently completed two bedroom barn conversion situated in beautiful countryside overlooking the Hambleton Hills and approximately 4 miles from the historic market town of Thirsk ( the home of James Herriot and the Yorkshire Vet) and with easy access to the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks.

The luxury accommodation comprises: on the ground floor an open plan living/dining/kitchen with underfloor heating and a feature wood burning stove. The lounge has a Smart TV and DVD and there is good wi fi connection throughout the property. There is also a downstairs cloakroom/WC. The kitchen is fully fitted with granite worktops, built in oven, microwave, induction hob, fridge, freezer, nespresso machine and dishwasher. There is a full size double sofa bed which can provide additional/alternative sleeping accommodation for up to two extra persons (additional charge of £25 per person, per night, please enquire).

On the first floor there are two bedrooms with superking or king sized zip and link beds which can be split into singles if required. Each bedroom has a TV and an en suite shower room. The bedrooms are connected by a galleried walkway overlooking the vaulted living area.

Outside there is a private south facing patio with seating and a BBQ.

There is a separate guest laundry with washing machine and tumble drier which guests are welcome to use.

On site there is a newly re-surfaced tennis court available for use by guests free of charge as well as a large stable block and ménage ( livery and grazing is available for visitor's own horses - extra charge, please enquire with the owners). There is also a play area for children with swings, slide, trampoline and see-saw and a well stocked coarse fishing lake which guests are welcome to use, again free of charge. Cyclists are particularly welcome and we can provide secure indoor storage as well as washing facilities for bikes.

There is a very popular local pub serving excellent home cooked food within easy walking distance ( food served Wednesday to Sunday inclusive, booking well in advance necessary). The property is on a national cycling route and there are numerous footpaths and bridle ways in the area making it an ideal location for cycling, walking and riding. The market towns of Thirsk and Northallerton with their shops, cafes and restaurants are within easy reach and the property's central position makes it very convenient for visiting the attractions of the Moors and the Dales. York and Harrogate are just a 30-40 minute drive away.

“A perfect stay”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2020

We recently returned home from our stay at The Mistal and are so impressed that we have booked again for next year! It is a lovely holiday cottage in a gorgeous setting with a private park area for children to play, a tennis court & lots of outdoor space to enjoy! I’ve recommended Old Low Moor Farm to my friends and family. My parents have booked to go at the end of the month and my friends have also booked for next year. I know they will all have a wonderful stay! The owner Jeff is some accommodating, the property was immaculately clean and we arrived to a lovely hamper of treats! Thanks so much, we can’t wait to visit again!

“Spacious, stylish and comfortable, a great place to stay and explore the Yorkshire Moors.”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2019

Karen greeted us when we arrived and made sure that we had everything we needed for our stay. The very generous welcome hamper was a lovely surprise. The Mistal is better even than the pictures, there's plenty of space and it's very well equipped for self catering and includes many thoughtful touches. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a holiday in comfort and very stylish surroundings. It's a great place to relax in and as a base to explore the beautiful Yorkshire Moors. We look forward to staying there again.

“Absolutely fabulous!”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2019

Jeff and Karen are fantastic hosts... From the welcome pack with the homemade jam and other various goodies to the loan of personal fishing equipment Jeff and Karen couldn’t have been more hospitable. Beautiful location, Northallerton in one direction and Thirsk the other way. The Mistal has been lovingly and respectfully decorated. Everything you could want and more. Felt like we were staying with friends or family. Tangles the dog is just as friendly as Jeff and Karen too. We will be returning, definitely... if we’re allowed! Thank you for everything xx

“A Bolthole for life”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2019

My sister and I had the most wonderful few days staying at the Mistal. Our welcome from Karen and Geoff was so warm, and an unexpected welcome hamper added to our enjoyment. The Mistal has been so lovingly restored and the high standard in every area is a joy to behold. It totally reflects the owners love and commitment of their properties. We should have stayed much longer, but we know we will be back, and next time for much longer. This is truly going to be somewhere we know we will return to again and again.
