    Lovely property, wasn’t aware as to how many steps to property, luckily we left someone at home with mobility problems: Everything else was lovely, thank you

  • "The steps up to the property was not mentioned in the description."

    The entrance living room would benefit from curtains across the double doors to provide privacy and make it more cosy. The hot water system needs attention as it kept going cold and losing pressure. The owner was helpful in trying to fix the problem but it kept re occurring. On the whole a pleasant place to stay.

  • "Working farm noises on Friday morning for a couple of hours."

    All other time was very very peaceful. Very spacious bedrooms and a very good kitchen with everything you need. Hot tub excellent also but needs an up over cover for it as lifting the cover on and off would be hard for some people. We believe the entrance / living room could be rearranged to look less like a hotel reception room. Beds very comfy. Blinds could be added to improve privacy and keep the sun out if needed. Overall very very nice accommodation and would definitely recommend to friends.

    The post code took us past and we weren’t taking notice of the sign we drove past, so we had to ask a local how to get there but only took us 5 mins more so not a major problem!!! Overall lovely cute place love that it’s on the second floor also makes it feel more safe!

    Very clean and the kitchen has every utensil you could ever need! We stayed during storm Arwen and was slightly worried about noise from the storm but we couldn't hear anything really and we were lovely and toastie inside! We stayed here on a recommendation from a friend and we are so glad we did! Beds are very comfortable and we all had a lovely nights sleep! We stayed as 6 girls celebrating a 40th birthday and found a lovely bar in Northallerton called the Potting Shed that had a DJ on, so if anybody is going for a similar thing, we recommend there!

  • "The property was just as it said, so lovely & so peaceful & quiet."

    Would definitely go back. Only thing, directions sent to me by Sykes only got me to the main road (which is long & runs through the entire village) it was dark & there's no phone signal, so had to drive out of the village to get signal & ring the lovely owner who was very helpful & directed me straight there. But essentially my waffle is saying better instructions could have prevented me bothering the owner on a Friday night! (The sat nav doesn't take you to the address.)

  • "Just back from a fantastic 6 day stay at Carvin Tor."

    What a wonderful little hideaway this property is. Kevin, the owner is such a helpful bloke, full of knowledge of the local area and nothing is too much trouble for him. The property was spotless throughout, kitchen well stocked with every utensil/pots/pans you could ever need, real home from home. Beds were extremely comfortable, we slept like logs ! Great , strong WiFi signal, comfortable sofas in the lounge area and TVs in every room with Freeview and as it’s October it was a little chilly in the evenings so we cranked the heating up a little bit, made it even cozier with the rain lashing against the windows and the wind howling! The hot tub was lovely too. Ok, it’s not the newest model but it does what it’s supposed to do, hot, bubbly and very relaxing. We will definitely be back for another visit. The location is perfect for getting out to either the North Yorkshire moors or The Dales, there’s so much to see and do within a short drive and spectacular scenery everywhere. My wife and I would highly recommend Carvin Tor, we’ll be back as soon as we can.

  • "This property is well below Sykes standards."

    The property had many issues the beds were very poor quality & uncomfortable, the kitchen had a integral washing machine dumped under the worktop, also F/Freezer was integral used as a free standing one, no handles, cupboards were old & sad looking, worktops & hob marked. Kettle had to be filled from the spout, there was no cupboard space to put food so had to be left on worktop. Glazed window in the kitchen was blown, chair in living room had feet removed, one bedroom was unfinished painted. Hot tub area in desperate need of some tlc certainly wasn’t a patio garden area. The list is endless. The view must have been taken elsewhere, we stayed in a Sykes cottage in May this year for less than the £800+ we paid for this one. I was pleased to leave & return home to comfort and high standards.

    We were met by our friendly host Kevin who gave us all the information we needed. Carvin-Tor is a lovely well equipped upper floor barn conversion in a cosy style. The hot tub was a big plus which was a sure favourite with our grandchildren. We also had a lovey 10 minute drive to nearby Kiplin Hall which is well worth a visit. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

    Very easy to find, and a relaxing break. The cottage was very clean, tidy, it had little touches making it feel very homely. The kitchen was adequately equipped which made all the difference for cooking meals. The location was ideal, easy enough to get into the neighbouring villages and towns. Prefect for a relaxing break and with some great walking routes near by. The hot tub was a fantastic touch, which we certainly got lots of use from. The owners were very friendly and so helpful Our only criticism would be one of the double beds were not comfy as the other two. Other than that we loved it. It certainly wouldn’t stop us booking with you guys again. Thank you again for a fab stay we will be back.

The property

This stone-built barn conversion is located in the village of Great Langton, six miles from Northallerton.

Ideal for either couples or families, this retreat is sure to impress.

Wander up the enchanting steps where you will arrive at a patio area with a hot tub and seating.

This makes a perfect entrance into the homely sitting room.

Tied together with leather sofas, a pretty rug and a TV, you will look forward to coming home and relaxing through the evening.

A double bedroom lies across the way, elevated by turquoise walls and matching bedding, which gives off an almost ocean effect.

The refreshing colour scheme will guarantee you sleep peacefully.

Neighbouring this, a king-size bedroom is lifted by a more neutral overtone and a sense of elegance throughout.

You can pick and choose between the two, as you wish.

A bathroom is nicely arranged with pleasant features to ensure you can get ready at ease.

This sweeps round to an open plan kitchen; cosy and inviting while home to the basics you may desire for meal preparation.

The dining area is wrapped in a floral pattern for a decorative touch.

Lastly, a double bedroom completes the layout, overlooked by wooden beams and a Velux window.

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to sleeping.

Once you have relaxed indoors, you will of course want to unwind in the hot tub on a sunny day.

For an adventure why not explore the town of Northallerton with its natural beauty, markets, tea rooms and bookshops.

Coves of Runswick Bay, Sand's End and Robin Hood's Bay, along with the town of Whitby, are all within one hour's drive away.

This is a glorious cottage in a memorable location.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Thirsk 9 miles.

Northallerton is a County town and administrative centre of North Yorkshire, located at the foot of a ridge dividing two river basin areas, the Wiske and the Cod Beck, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the edge of the Vale of York, between the Hambleton Hills and the Yorkshire Dales. This thriving town boasts market days on Wednesdays and Saturdays, when both sides of the High Street are home to stalls selling a wide range of goods and produce, plus on the fourth Wednesday of the month the market is joined by a farmers' market. Despite its modest size, Northallerton has a number of independent and national shops, including Betty’s Tea Rooms, Lewis & Cooper, an outstanding delicatessan and wine merchant, award-winning butcher’s, artisan baker, greengrocers, two department stores, several supermarkets and bookshops. With good rail links to Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Durham and York, the activities are not just restricted to the countryside. Situated equidistant between the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, the opportunities for exploration are endless. These include a day at the races at one of the many local courses, including Thirsk, a family trip to the unique Forbidden Corner at Middleham, a trip to a country house such as Newby Hall, Kiplin Hall and Castle Howard, or a round of golf. The restored Victorian resort of Saltburn, plus the pretty beaches and coves of Runswick Bay, Sand's End and Robin Hood's Bay, along with the town of Whitby, are all within one hour's drive away.
