About sue holman
I am Sue Holman Married with 3 children who all still live and work at home in our family business which is based on the farm. They have all enjoyed growing up in this area and made many friends. As the family are now growing up we decided to convert our unused farm buildings and are completed to a standard that we would be happy to stay at.
sue holman purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why sue holman chose York
We were close to this area and knew it quite well. It is in lovely quiet countryside but close to many main attractions and cities. The local area is a great place to fetch up a family

Top quality rural stay
Very cute barn conversion , everything you could need in a place. Kitchen well stocked with pans, Crockery, utensil, foil etc. Also had tea, coffee, herbs etc. Lovely touches with the bread, crisps and homemade buns.
Would be great if there was a loo upstairs and the bed was so hard for me but I guess that’s personal taste.
Easy to follow directions and simple to get into York. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent cottage in a perfect location
We enjoyed a weekend stay at Sue's property, ideal location close to sporting activities at Allerthorpe. The cottage was perfect, clean, spacious and Sue even left homemade buns, bread, milk, butter, ham etc. The cottage had everything you would need for a weekend away. The kids especially liked the games.
A lovely break. Sue was very welcoming and provided a welcome package with some super homemade buns - a real treat! Highly recommended.
Spotless, well equipped cottage.
Welcome pack which included home made cakes was a welcome surprise.
Ideally located for exploring the surrounding area.
Definitely would recommend, could not find fault with anything.
We will be booking for next year
Very good overall.
If you remember this is on a working farm then you will find it excellent. My one slight problem was that I found the double bed quite hard and did not sleep particularly well other.
I can definitely recommend the option of a home cooked meal on arrival. It was delicious.
Beautiful compact little cottage, tasteful and well furnished. Sue was very welcoming and helpful. Location was perfect for us. Would heartily recommend.
