  • "The accommodation was five star"

    Reviewed by MarkJul 2021

  • "Lane’s barn is perfectly situated on the edge of a village, very quiet and peaceful."

    The accommodation is beautifully presented and very comfortable and homely. The two bathrooms are a bonus if more than one couple are staying. The local shop and butcher is 10 minutes walk away, and the pub at the bottom of the village is welcoming and serves a very nice Sunday lunch. We will definitely be staying here again.

  • "The barn was a delightful home from home, perfect for exploring the coast and countryside."

    It was very well equipped, clean and comfortable and had excellent WiFi. The lambs in the adjoining field were a joy to watch when we returned late afternoon from our travels!

  • "We were very disappointed to fine that that there was no WiFi facility provided so we could not use our Tablet."

    The TV set with DVD/CD playing facilities had been rep[lace with a new TV without these facilities. Glaisdale is split into two distinct parts and the pub was not in the part where we were staying. The road between the two parts is unlit, has no paving, with an unrestricted speed limit, so walking to the pub was not a reasonable proposition particularly after dark

    Thank you for your feedback. The property is not advertised as having WiFi, which is why there is no facility. We can confirm that there is a working DVD player available for all guests and the pub is within 1 mile of the property, as per the listing. Property Owner

  • "The barn has been converted beautifully and is maintained to a very high standard."

    Unlike some properties this one is ideal for 4 adults whilst still being equally suited to a family of 4. The main living airy is spacious, light and airy. Both bedrooms are well laid out and have ample, practical storage. Having 2 bathrooms makes it perfect! If planning another holiday in this beautiful part of Yorkshire we would definitely return.

  • "This is an excellent location for a walking holiday; within five minutes walk from the property there is a choice of footpaths, and the nearby countryside varies from upper moorland to riverside walks."

    Moreover, the coast is easily accessible with Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and Runswick Bay to choose from.

  • "A lovely stay."

    The accommodation is warm and cosy with everything you need. All appliances work perfectly and everywhere tastefully furnished whilst maintaining a homely feel. The views at the rear of the barn are beautiful and there are lovely country walks to take from the barn. The owner is extremely friendly helpful, should you need to contact her.

  • "We di not book this holiday but was transferred there by Sykes."

    On first arriving the outside was a bit of a disappointment but once in side WOW. The owner had gone out of their way to get it ready at short notice, and this was very much appreciated. The cottage was perfect inside and the addition of ornaments and a beautiful mirror in the living room added to the whole effect. We enjoyed staying there and the company of a cat that made friends with us on arrival. It disappeared each night but was back in the morning.

    Would have been good to have table and chairs where there was a good view across valley. Lots of good walks, close to the coast. Wonderful fish and chip in Whitby at the Magpie.

  • "Cottage was beautiful and very well done throughout nice and cosy love the underfloor heating and great views with plenty of parking."

    Hosts left us a lovely bottle of white wine which was a nice touch. Having a downstairs bedroom was great for my grandma. The only two little criticisms would be that it has no WiFi and as I run a business if I hadn’t had good internet package on my phone it could of been an issue, secondly there is a radiator in top bedroom but had no idea how to get it to turn on so was little on the chilly side with it been a really cold week in Feb would of been nice to have the option to heat that room. These are only small issues overall we loved the cottage and will certainly book again, fantastic place with lots to do only a short drive away

About the location


Whitby 9 miles; Pickering 21 miles.

A peaceful village on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, Glaisdale is set amongst beautiful countryside in the heart of the Esk Valley. The village itself has a post office in the general store, an excellent butcher (famed for his pork pies) and one hotel/pub, with restaurant. Further afield, Whitby and the coast are just 9 miles away whilst the quaint moorland villages of Hutton-le-Hole, Lastingham and Thornton Dale and the market town of Pickering are all within easy touring distance. For something a little quieter, why not take a trip to the less-discover gem of Saltburn by the Sea, a charming, Victorian seaside resort. The terminus of the North York Moors Railway is at nearby Grosmont, inviting you to take a steam railway ride back in history through beautiful moorland scenery.
