Brilliant setting, wonderful house, great holiday.
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!
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!

Schoolmaster Pasture is in an excellent location, and is a really lovely cottage. There was all amenities we could want. AGA was really fun to use, and a different cooking experience - plus the kitchen was always nice and warm. We would definitely stay again.

Nice warm house with comfortable and cosy log/coal fire in the lounge. The property was very spacious and had all the comforts of home. There were great walks right from the doorstep.
Mr Benton

A real taste of country living in an active sheep ranching area. A nice mix of of old moor living with just the right amount of modern comforts.
