  • "A beautiful barn with great facilities!"

    We would definitely stay here again!

  • "Myself & 6 friends enjoyed a belated 40th birthday celebration but it was worth the wait."

    The barn was gorgeous with everything we needed. Comfy beds, lots of seating especially the dining table. The hot tub was a bonus & the log fire. This place is ideal for exploring the dales & walking distance to shops & pubs. We had a fab time.

  • "We found Burrow Barn to be everything we needed for a break with our friends."

    It was very comfortable and large enough for those who wanted to find a spot for some peace and quiet.The kitchen dining area was very well equipped and this tended to be our focal point especially with the open views of countryside through the patio doors. The addition of the hot tub was a bonus, though not used as much as we would have liked as we were out and about so much! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Burrow Barn to anyone.

  • "We felt the en suite downstairs was too small and lacked a shower, one of our party found having to go upstairs for a shower difficult."

    The extractor in the other en suite was not working and without other ventilation it was a problem. The sink was rather small. Facilities and and equipment were, otherwise, excellent. Hot tub was a boon.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Burrow Barn."

    The house is beautifully decorated and plenty of space for the 4 of us. The outside space is well maintained and looked after, it would have been nice to have more for the children outside, but they loved the hot tub! The only downside was the building work across the road which could be noisy during the day.

  • "The barn is beautiful - it is well equipped and comfortable and we were reassured by the cleanliness given the current pandemic."

    The hot tub was great and the guest robes were a lovely touch. We didn’t venture out all weekend, partly because of the pandemic but mainly because we were quite happy to have a very relaxed weekend. Hopefully we will be back!

  • "Burrow Barn is beautifully furnished and the perfect place for a family celebration in the Yorkshire Dales."

    We were all in need of some down time and Burrow Barn certainly provided that, without us feeling in each others pockets. The dining area is great for socialising and the bedrooms are comfortable, clean and stylish. The hot tub was well tended to by the owner, who popped round at the weekend to check it was working. This was such a lovely addition to the barn and one that the littlest one of the group found most brilliant! (The older ones were quite chuffed with it too!). The local amenities are plentiful and within easy walking distance. We used the Black Bull pub for drinks, Bentham Chippy which was nice and Little Fortune for a Chinese which was really, really good. We managed to climb one of the Yorkshire 3 peaks whilst we were there and the birthday boy had a brilliant weekend. All in all, a fabulous stay and a true gem in the Yorkshire Dales- thank you. As for Sykes Holidays, we couldn't fault the service and appreciate the level of detail that goes into each holiday listing and contact email. Thank you.

  • "Firstly, can I just say that Burrow barn was fantastic."

    The garden, hot tub and outside space was fabulous, and the house its self was beautiful. I could not fault anything about the place. My only negative would be that Sykes Cottages took payment twice, by mistake. I had warned them prior to this happening, as my payment wasn't attached to my booking on their system. This caused alot of unnecessary stress.

  • "Burrow Barn was stunning."

    Clean, comfy and really warm! The log fire made for cozy nights in. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. The hot tub was fabulous - we used it a lot and even got to star gaze from it one night when the skies were clear - lovely experience. The tumble dryer was a bonus for drying our swimsuits between hot tub uses. The kids loved to watch the rabbits playing in the garden at breakfast time. The downstairs bedroom was great for my mum who has recently has knee surgery so can't get about as well as normal. We had some lovely days out too, exploring White Scar caves and completing the Ingleton Waterfall walk, both are just a short drive away. We would love to go back to Burrow Barn again and would highly recommend a stay there :)

  • "Loved our stay at Burrow Barn."

    Very homely from the moment we entered the premises and easily accommodated our family of six adults and two children. Set in a quite location but within easy reach to local villages. The Barn is full of character from years gone by to a modern fully functioning home and a added bonus of a large hot tub. Anyone visiting this establishment will not be disappointed a huge credit to the present owners of Burrow Barn.

  • "We booked Burrow Barn for our Christmas girly get together and when we arrived everything was WOW!"

    The cottage is furnished to an exceptional standard, was incredibly clean and felt more like a home rather than a let. The crockery, cutlery, utensils in the kitchen were sparkly and clean and there was absolutely everything you could have needed. The lounge was very spacious and the roaring log fire kept us all cosy. The bedrooms were very clean and comfortable as were the bathrooms. The hot tub was divine after a long day walking at Ingleton Falls. Would we stay here again? In a heartbeat.

    Kitchen was well equipped for cooking and great for hosting. All rooms where clean and well presented. Bathrooms where done out to a high standard and where very clean. The local village had some good pubs we ate at the horse and farrier twice and both really nice home cooked meals and had the Indian takeaway which was also nice. There is a playground in the middle of the village that the kids really enjoyed. The cottage is a good base to explore all the Yorkshire dales and lakes. Having the hot tub was a real added bonus. Would stay here again and highly recommend to anybody wanting to stay here.

About the location


Ingleton 3.5 miles; Kirkby Lonsdale 8.4 miles; Morecambe 16.8 miles

Positioned just west of the Yorkshire Dales, on the northern fringes of the Forest of Bowland, this lovely town is split into High Bentham and Low Bentham, with the babbling River Wenning running between the two. The town boasts an annual agricultural show, with handicraft, horticulture and livestock competitions, which dates back to the 19th century. In addition to this is the annual Carnival and funfair, entertaining a thriving community with workshops, music and many fundraising events. High Bentham has an array of public houses and eateries to choose from, and the railway station sits on the Leeds to Morecambe line. For walking enthusiasts, there are colour coded circular trails of different lengths and capabilities, right on the doorstep. The neighbouring village of Ingleton offers some wonderful caves and tumbling waterwalls, along with a year-round climbing wall and a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. Enjoy a trip out to Morecambe Bay with your bucket and spade, where you can fly your kites, build sandcastles or simply take a stroll along the promenade. For more independent shops and restaurants, the town of Kirkby-Lonsdale is only a short drive away, with access to Ruskin's View. Take the footpath from the churchyard at St. Mary's Church and follow the trail high about the River Lune, where you can marvel at a panorama of the Lune Valley and Underley Hall. A wonderful location for exploring National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North West coastline.
