    Everything was spotlessly clean and the beds really comfortable. If it had an ev charging point, that would have been the cherry cake for me. Would we stay here again definitely. Ps thanks for the wine

  • "On pulling out of the drive, it would be helpful if a mirror was on the left hand wall."

    It would be advantageous in being able to see oncoming traffic approaching from the right as we found it's a bit of a blind spot.

  • "We had a very relaxed and comfortable stay in Lanes Barn, the facilities of the barn were second to none."

    The village and surrounding moors are fun to explore. The only criticism at all was that you had to watch where you walked outside the barn for ducks droppings, other than that a great holiday!

  • "Lanes Barn is at the end of the long pretty village of Glaisdale (11 miles from Whitby) on the main road through the village."

    The pictures reflect the property, there is no real view as this is mostly hidden by the neighbours buildings. If you do not live in a rural location the sheep, hens and ducks are a joy in the fields next to the property. Internet is now at the property which will be a must for most guests. We were traveling with an 84 year old with mobility issues, so the large downstairs bathroom (really lovely) and bedroom was a real plus, with only a couple of stairs to the open plan living room area. The location is perfect for walkers, we are cyclists, but would not recommend cycling in this area unless you are a very strong club cyclist or have an electric bike. We would also assume you would need four wheel drive in the winter months. The property was very clean, well equipped with lots of hot running water. All the beds had very heavy winter quilts on, making sleeping very uncomfortable throughout the August week we visited. None of us slept well throughout the week, this was coupled with blinds which let the light into both rooms. The property needs blackout blinds/curtains to keep the light out of the rooms to aid sleep and summer weight quilts in the summer months. These two very simple issues to resolve, spoilt our holiday, as by day 7 we were all very tired from lack of sleep. Ilkley - West Yorkshire - Summer 2022

    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.

  • "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

    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.

    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.
