“Brilliant setting, wonderful house, great holiday.”
Reviewed 4 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed at Schoolmaster Pasture for 3 nights in December 2016. The house was spacious and ideal for our group. All the bedrooms where large, while the house was well equipped with everything we needed. The aga cooker was easy to use and kept the down stairs rooms very warm. The location was very remote but only 20 minutes from Richmond and Aysgarth Falls - both are worth a visit. Thank you to Richard for making us feel very welcome.
Kind regards
Alex

“Our most magical Christmas!”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed here over the Christmas period in 2015.
There was 10 of us including small children and we had the most magical Christmas.
We were disappointed that it was booked up this Christmas but we are delighted to have booked it again next Christmas!
We loved how remote this property is and its beautiful picturesque settings.
The cottages is well equipped and although the Arga did take a little getting used to - especially cooking for 10 but Richard did explain how to use it and the arga cook books did come in handy! The arga made the cottage feel warm and cosy and made the kitchen an favourite gathering place!
I really cannot find fault as we had a wonderful time and are already on count down to our return this year!

“Location, location, location”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

If you want a complete get away with friends or family this is the property. Excellent directions provided by the owners. Lovely and clean, well equipped large cottage. Only reason this property didn't get a five from us is that the oven struggled to cater for ten people (too small and didn't retain its heat), the lounge didn't comfortably seat all of us at once and shower was on the snug size! Please don't let this put you off, we managed very well, just ate late and spread out round the house. Large dining table provided for games/card nights and even the little sloping pool table with dodgy cues provided the teens with some entertainment. Great walks from the property, if not a little remote! We walked into Reeth over the moor directly from the property via Hurst (about 4.5 miles, took an hour and half). Visits out to Hawes, Hardraw, Aysgarth, Richmond, Tan Hill all within good distance. Would definitely book again, just maybe plan to eat out more or take a slow cooker with us.

“Wonderfully remote, peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We wanted a place that was big enough to accommodate a group of family and friends, and Schoolmaster Pasture was the perfect place to get together, share meals around the dining table, gather in the kitchen to prepare meals and/or chat. We had a few sunny days, although the weather was mostly cool and overcast while we were there: the heat from the aga and the central heating was enough to keep us cosy so we didn't have to light either of the fires. None of us had used an aga before, but it was just about big enough to make hearty meals for 6 to 8 people. It was handy to have the toaster and microwave. The kitchen is well-equipped, except that there seemed to be a shortage of lids for the several casserole dishes in the cupboard! (We managed with lids from the saucepans).The house is a wonderful building - large, roomy and solid and with an interesting layout. The beds were the best we've slept in! All of our guests remarked on how exceptionally comfortable they were. The directions received from the owners were spot on, and we found the house without any problems (some of our visitors used satnav and had no difficulty finding their way). It is very much off the beaten track, which is one of its attractions for us. The surrounding countryside is delightfully scenic, calm and remote. We enjoyed the company of sheep, cattle and red grouse. The owners were perfect - helpful without being invasive. We had a wonderful stay and we intend to return!

“New year wow”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

There were eight of us staying for the new year period, all friends and yes we returned as friends. We had a fantastic time at schoolmasters pasture we settled in just fine. It is very remote but we loved it. We took everything we needed plus more. We went for long walks each day and came home to lovely food. The only problem we had was the aga, when you are not used to it this became an issue and wished we had got another small cooker as a back up as cooking a meal for eight in such a small aga oven was a problem. Other than that the whole week was fantastic and we would return again. The setting of the cottage was brilliant you looked onto open pasture which was so lovely to wake up to. Many thanks for allowing us stay we wish you well for the future. Gareth and maggie Roberts plus friends. X

“Remote but well equipped”

Once we eventually managed to find schoolmaster pasture, in the middle of nowhere, a group of 10 of us had a great weekend.

Local road closures didn't help with trying to get there! The property is a farmhouse accessed down a long farm track from a gate, making you feel very self contained and reclusive. The nice aga in the kitchen did indeed bring everyone together in that room, the living room with fire next door was also lovely on an evening. Bedrooms are all comfortable and adequate, albeit low ceilinged.

Enjoyed a long walk to the village of Reeth from Schoolmaster Pasture.

Would stay again in a group of good friends, and would recommend to others.
