    It's an absolute diamond of a place, and we would recommend it to anybody looking for a place where you can just kick back and enjoy the peace, and the views of the countryside. There is nothing at all we would fault about the place, even the bed is just perfect, and that's something many places get wrong. Greg and Therresa have got it all exactly as you could ever hope for

  • "Location fantastic, however I must say I feel the 'luxury' elements of this stay fell far below the standards I would expect."

    The fancy shower, which is used as a selling point in the listing, can really only be used on a standard setting as the water pressure is so poor and hot water temperature hit and miss. We understand that this is due to the remote location, however this should not then be being used to advertise the stay. The hot tub, whilst pleasant, was not as clean as I had expected, and the lid required a lot of manual effort to take off (literally needed to be dragged onto planks). On the whole the cleanliness was ok, but the top of the wardrobe, windowsills, and mattress were all dusty. This could have been overlooked however given the extremely specific and strict cleaning guidelines given by the hosts to guests, I would expect a completely immaculate property. With regard to this cleaning policy, a lot is expected of guests on check-out, not only stripping the bed, but sorting bedding and towels into specific laundry bags, cleaning the oven, and wiping all surfaces. This is again not what I would expect from an apparently 'luxury' stay. This was claimed to be due to covid, but we have stayed other places at much lower price points during much worse periods of the pandemic and we were not expected to clean the property for the next guests! We also paid a £300 good housekeeping bond before arrival, from which the hosts initially deducted an extremely harsh £45 to pay for: one prosecco flute broken by accident, two small led torches that we packed with our things by mistake (and notified the hosts of this), an egg cup which they later found, and £15 for the time taken to locate replacements. When I politely queried this by email (£5 for one prosecco glass, and £15 for time spent finding torches I found in 30 seconds on amazon seemed steep), the hosts became extremely unpleasant, aggressive and rude. I feel they responded in this manner due to the fact that they know we are two young women, and I highly doubt they would speak to other guests in this manner. Unfortunately, this has left a really sour taste to what was supposed to be a relaxing luxury honeymoon in lieu of the trip abroad cancelled due to covid, and I feel very sad that this will now be associated with my memories of the trip. Overall, I therefore cannot in good faith recommend this property despite the location and promised facilities, and urge other guests to look elsewhere in the area.

    Receiving malicious feedback like this is upsetting and clearly at odds with the views of everyone else who has stayed with us. It is even at odds with feedback from this lady sent by text the day after her departure in which she says: “Thanks for a lovely stay”. At the heart of this feedback is an issue over replacing damaged / missing items and an assertion that in dealing with this issue we have discriminated against these guests on the basis of gender and age. We are appalled by the suggestion of discriminatory behaviour, which we would never entertain, and again we have a text from this lady stating: “… please feel free to take the cost from [my] bond and accept my sincere apologies”. To address the specific points: * On the Sykes listing the shower is deliberately referred to as a “rain shower” rather than power shower acknowledging we do not have mains water pressure * There is nothing wrong with the hot water – there is no hot water tank, the boiler generates hot water on demand * We are specific in the Sykes listing to describe the hot tub as a “traditional wood fired hot tub not a jacuzzi” * The hot tub it is emptied and cleaned between each and every guest booking, and the water chemically treated, to ensure there is no health risk to our guests * The property is professionally cleaned so we’d be surprised if there was excessive dust present * As part of our COVID procedures on checkout we ask guests to bag their bedding and towels (so we don’t come into contact with them) which then go into quarantine for three days before we wash them * As part of our checkout procedure, we do ask guests to leave the property clean and tidy as they found it We take great pride in the standards we set and the high-quality facilities we offer at Shawclough Barn; we always go the extra distance for our guests and are proud to have been awarded our VisitEngland 5 Star accreditation for our amenities and professional approach to the provision of self-catering accommodation.

A lot of thought had been put in by the owners providing everything we needed for our week there. A cosy cottage feel, but with plenty of room (even the shower was huge). Lovely socially distanced welcome and a pre-warmed hot tub awaiting us after our long journey. Loved watching the stars from the hot tub at night and taking lots of local walks during the day.

Inside the cottage the descriptive photos did only do ‘half justice’! The picture window by the dining table again the eyes feasted on the fantastic view, the enormous laid back settee was ideal for relaxing or for watching television ( including’Netflix’ ) Heavy drapes for windows and doors give a high quality feel and the co-ordinated light fittings created from the shuttles from weaving mills was an ingenious use of recycling!! Really useful storage space under the stairs with coat hooks, 3 types of recycling bags, emergency torch ( and umbrella!), vacuum cleaner, ironing board and still enough space for our plastic storage crates in which we had brought our food stuff dry goods and two cool boxes! Going up the beautifully finished staircase to the ‘galleried landing’ light came in through ‘Velux’ windows ( with roller blinds) The Shower Room, walk in luxurious shower, his and hers basins, etc. Super comfy bed , large wardrobe, storage galore, and the freestanding roll top bath !!

    We've had the best nights sleep, and the log burner made it cosy and warm. The hot tub was a log burning one, of witch we've never seen, however Greg did start it up and got it up to temperature, it was lovely when we got in and enjoyed it, however you have to get out to put more logs on to keep the temperature, it used a full bag of logs to get it started, we could have bought more logs at £10 a bag. Theressa and Greg were there on hand and they couldn't do enough for you, we will be returning.

    Lovely to see you both last week, thanks for the fabulous feedback and we look forward to seeing you both again. Can I just clarify one point regarding the hot tub for future guests reading our feedback. Normally the hot tub will be up to temperature on arrival for our guests, on this occasion we heated the tub up after your arrival due to bad weather. The wood we use to do this is at no extra cost to guests and a complimentary bag of logs (kindling and firelighters) is then left by the hot tub for guests as a starter pack to keep the tub at temperature.

    As we arrived Theresa and Greg were on hand to tell us everything about the place, they are such friendly and welcoming people and made us feel right at home instantly. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and more, every single bit of it has been so well thought out, its incredibly cosy and romantic... if you think the pictures are great just wait till you are there! Every single night was so peaceful and I dont think we have ever slept better than our stay here because the bed is absolutely to die for. The hot tub, fire place and bath give you so many reasons to want to stay in all day, but coming back after one of the wonderful walks and cuddling up in one of them is a great end to any day. Theresa and Greg went above and beyond in making sure guests have lots of information about local spots and gave us some great suggestions for walks (Malham is a must). So much time and effort has gone in to make this place what it is and you would be hugely missing out not to book this place! It is so private and secluded and you are in an ideal location to be able to do your food shopping but within driving distance to some absolutely incredible walks and you only have to look out of the window to see the beautiful surroundings. Also make sure you read the welcome book they have absolutely packed it with local information, best places to eat, museums and walks -they have really catered to every need and we cant thank them enough for such a wonderful, relaxing and romantic week away.

  • "We had a lovely few days at the Shawclough barn."

    The cottage is extremely well maintained, very clean and beautifully decorated. The views from the large windows are amazing and this is also one of the few properties available where you can also enjoy the beautiful open views from the hot tub. Despite being set in open fields, the barn is very private and located near to everything you would need, there are shops and a supermarket a short drive away and a lovely pub within walking distance. Plenty of places to go and things to do if you are so inclined, or if you'd rather just stay home and chill out the barn is a more than comfortable place to do just that. The barn was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay, the shower room is lovely and although we didn't use it, the bath in the bedroom is a nice touch. The owners kindly supplied a few basics for our arrival including some milk, butter and nice bread etc, plus a little something extra in the fridge. Something that wasn't mentioned in the listing which I think should have been is that fact that it is a wood burning hot tub. It was our first time using a wood burning tub it took us a bit of getting used to. The owners will light the fire before you arrive but after that you need to relight it and maintain it yourself or if you go out you need to contact them and ask them to do it for you, otherwise it won't be warm enough for you to hop straight in when you arrive back. We found it took about an hour to get up to our preferred temperature. Also, the lid of the tub is very heavy and awkward to lift, it takes two people to lift it, so if either of you are unable to do heavy lifting you will struggle with it. We managed just fine, but I think future guests should be made aware as it is completely different to the types of hot tub we have been used to at other cottages where the lid can easily be removed by one person. There are also no bubbles/jets, this didn't bother us at all (we like the quiet) but it might be something that future guests would like to be aware of. The wood burner gives off a beautiful smell though, and once you are in it's a very private tub with no disturbances, apart from the odd whinnying pony in the next field! Overall, a beautiful place. I would definitely recommend it for a relaxing getaway.

    Thank you for your kind feedback and I am pleased you had such a lovely stay. We take great pride in the barn and agree that it's in a beautiful area! I am sorry you had some difficulties with the hot tub and the owners would happily have helped if we had known you were struggling in any way. We have spoken with the owners who have confirmed a one or two-person operation can be achieved by sliding the lid easily into position rather than lifting. We have not had such issues reported before but we appreciate your comments and have added a note to make it clear that this is a wood fired hot tub as we understand there are many different types Property Owner

The property

This beautiful cottage sits high on the old road between Colne and Skipton, boasting panoramic views from one of the highest hills in Pendle, with easy access to the Yorkshire Dales, Forest of Bowland and picturesque towns such as Harrogate and Ilkley. Whether you are planning a romantic trip, or an idyllic getaway for two, this one-of-a-kind retreat is the place to be for fabulous natural scenery which can all be appreciated from the stunning wood fired hot tub, patio area and breath-taking feature windows.

Access the cottage via a delightful private driveway and Shawclough Barn invites you inside to its warm and cosy open-plan living area.

With a magnificent homely kitchen and a dining area looking out over the tranquil landscape, you can return here any time of day and truly relax.

Tucked away into the corner of the room you will discover a woodburning stove opposite a large and comfortable sofa where you can begin those snug nights in.

The same sense of luxury continues into the hallway, where you will be intrigued by the contemporary lighting reminding guests of the area’s former textile history, before taking stairs which lead up to your own fashionable night-time haven. The super king-size bedroom has been uniquely styled under A-framed beams, and features a freestanding roll-top bath to relax in, resting beneath Velux windows.

Adjacent there is an absolutely stunning separate wet-room with wood-effect tiling, walk-in “rain shower”, twin basins and WC. Whether you are settling down after a sightseeing adventure, or waking up to the scenery, you will feel right at home.

Laneshaw Bridge is perfect for walkers and cyclists, with no shortage of walking and cycling opportunities, including the Pennine Way and Bronte Way close by, and many footpaths available straight from the cottage.

To unwind on a nice afternoon, Black Lane Ends Tavern is close by, a well-known pub sitting on top of the moors with stunning views and a cosy charm.

There’s loads to do on your doorstep: The pretty hamlet of Wycoller, most famous for its Bronte connection, lies close by.

Today Wycoller Hall stands in ruins but this 16th century hall is believed to have been the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Bronte’s novel, ‘Jane Eyre'.

Spend a day exploring the “Panopticans”: four large scale sculptures, all within 20 miles of the cottage, constructed as symbols of the renaissance of the area.

Take a day boat, walk or cycle ride along the Leeds Liverpool canal.

Explore the circular Pendle Way over Pendle Hill taking in waterfalls, moors and the famous lairs of the Pendle Witches. Book a shooting experience at Kelbrook Shooting School or a Land Rover experience at Broughton Hall just outside Skipton.

Further afield explore Skipton Castle, Bolton Abbey, Ilkely Moor, Malham Tarn, Grassington, Settle and the Yorkshire three Peaks Skipton and Colne are the two closest towns both offering an exceptional variety of independent shops and lots of eateries to choose from.

There's the large retail outlet of Boundary Mills, just four miles away in Colne, a must for lovers of shopping.

Nearby Skipton, known as 'The Gateway to the Dales' is a lovely old market town with much to interest the enthusiastic visitor, boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street.

In 2014 the area hosted the first leg of the Tour De France, bringing in many visitors from far and wide to this wonderful area.
