  • "The property and surrounding was gorgeous."

    Was hard to find as sat nav took us to big green house ,Pendle stables, but it was next private road along. You can't really see the sign til you're on top of it and at night there is no lights just a small red reflector on post . Few lovely pub restaurants nearby and lovely villages to visit. Before arriving at property, we had a call to say oven door was broken (Saturday) that was fixed but Monday and they had provided an air fryer . There was no washing machine available. Although they have two ground floor bedrooms they had a big step going into them which was difficult for me and my mum to access , being disabled. They did come quick with a couple of wheelchair ramps but they weren't ideal as we needed to use as extra step. So they were folded but unstable, so my husband went out and bought a couple of blocks for us to use instead . My mum and I rarely used living room because there were two big steps into that . For any able bodied persons the house was great . Just need to be aware that it's not accessible for disabled. They toilet next to living room was blocked , we did make them aware of this but wasn't sorted, as I said we aren't using it anyway . The others enjoyed using the pool table upstairs. And my 4yr old also enjoyed the play area outside . Although there were a few little issues to deal with during our stay , we did enjoy our time there . We saw the owner the day oven was being sorted and had a nice chat. I would recommend staying at grains barn . Just need to be aware that the ground floor is not accessible for disabled .

  • "We had an excellent stay, it couldn't have gone any better for us."

    The house is absolutley beautiful. The only thing I would mention that needs improvement is the cooking facilities, the oven is not great and took a long time to make chips, we were planning on cooking a Sunday roast but decided against it after realising the oven and induction hob took so long to cook food, same with the microwave, and you would benefit from having a larger toaster instead of a 2 toast toaster. Also the bath, the cold water doesn't run into the bath, it just drips all over the floor. This is only constructive criticism, everything else was absolutley perfect and the house has been done to a high standard, beds are extremely comfy and warm, the pool table is a bonus! The fire is amazing, very spacious property, kids loved the park at the back, and the views are second to none. Don't hesitate to book, you'll be blown away. We will 100% come back.

  • "We spent 5 nights in this beautiful accommodation ."

    It has been converted to a really high standard. The space available to us was amazing. A great place to relax and kick back. The quality of the fixtures and fittings was very high. The owner could not have been more accommodating, reacting to every communication almost immediately and resolving any small issues we had. I would definitely recommend this accommodation. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with plenty of local attractions and days out. Would not hesitate to rebook this accommodation.

    Thank you so much for the kind words! We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "My family and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the charming Grains Barn for a weekend getaway in celebration of my grandmother's birthday."

    First and foremost, our hosts were exceptional. Their warmth and hospitality made us feel like welcome guests from the moment we stepped in. They were always on hand to answer our questions, provide recommendations for local attractions, and ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Their genuine care for our well-being was evident throughout our stay, and it made all the difference. Grains Barn itself was a hidden gem. It's a beautifully maintained property, and what struck us most was how spotlessly clean it was. The attention to detail in maintaining the cottage was impressive, and it contributed significantly to our overall enjoyment. The cottage was well-equipped with all the amenities we could possibly need. A fully stocked kitchen and a cosy living area with a fireplace was the perfect spot for family gatherings. The bedrooms were comfortable and provided a peaceful night's sleep. Grains Barn is an outstanding holiday cottage that provides everything you could wish for in a peaceful and well-maintained retreat. The hosts' genuine kindness, the cottage's impeccable cleanliness, and its homey atmosphere make it a standout choice for a relaxing getaway. We would gladly return and highly recommend it to anyone seeking a memorable holiday.
