    It was very cosy and met our accommodation needs 100%. The games room was enjoyed very much! There is ample parking which we appreciated as our adult children stayed in the cottage and my husband and I visited meaning four cars were parked up at times. The farm eggs were also a lovely touch - thank you. The owner made us feel very welcome and was very accommodating. We will definitely return.

  • "Amazing property and people!"

    What an amazing place almost magical, my children were ready to move in! Everything you needed was at the barn, I took tea towels, washing up liquid, sponges and dog bowls etc but it was so well equipped I needn't of bothered. Katie and David have thought of everything! On entering the property on arrival there was a basket on the table with fresh eggs from the farm, biscuits, tea towel, snacks a little welcome note all in a lovely little basket. I have a toddler and was a bit worried about the stairs after reading the reviews but they are fine and beautiful. Each step has large flat grips on them and they were normal size if not bigger than normal and they had a wooden gate at the top which stopped the dogs from getting up and said toddler from falling down, such a relief. Everywhere had blankets if needed my girls loved the sheep ones and an extra quilt for the main bed although it was warm enough we didn't need it. The children loved the playroom and just everything you can imagine was thought of at this barn. It was beautiful and the decor was just perfect for an old barn. I must also add I wasn't kept up by dogs or heard them hourly, they do have dogs but further away from the property and its a working farm in the countryside so you are surrounded by nature and farm. The views are amazing and so much to do right on the doorstep, literally! If you walk out of the barn there is a footpath behind the owners property that takes you across a field over a small road and small footpath again to three chimneys cottage from the film the railway children at the bottom of the hill is the railway line that was used and you can still journey on a steam train if you wanted. Haworth is along the road and home to the bronte sisters and lovely quaint shops. Katie and David are amazing people, i was a bit worried at first being so close to the owners property but they didn't interfere or come over it was i that was popping to see them. Such interesting people and katie showed us her harps and played for us, my autistic daughter never talks but happily talked to katie and fell in love with the harp, will definitely be booking again! Thank you Kate and David for a magical week! X

    So we didn't have a dog to irritate the dog's in the pen which did bark day and night, not continuously but at least hourly.... We left a day early because lack of sleep was driving me nuts... Otherwise Moldy Warp Barn was fine hosts were friendly, my adult grandchildren really enjoyed their chat with the guy about the old car renovation.

    Thank you for your feedback and I know from chats with my husband that you and your extended family were really enjoying your stay and meeting up at Moldy Warp Barn. I am sorry you were disturbed by a dog during the night. I was quite baffled by this, especially since a family member had visited the property the week before to talk to our guests, and we’d not heard anything in the farmhouse opposite. Our dogs are trained sheepdogs and as such don’t really bark unless they are disturbed and I have seldom heard them in the night, and we’ve never had any issue other than a couple of weeks ago. The property has been a holiday cottage for 5 years and we’ve always had sheep and sheepdogs. They sleep in kennels at the other side of the farm from the barn. I know you were admiring them from the conversation with my husband. However I have since found out that the cottage at the back of the barn has been looking after a dog for a family member on and off for a few weeks and it was very unsettled. I have had words with them, the dog is back at it’s real home now permanently and all I can do is apologise for a situation that was out of our control. Please always talk to us about any issue as we live on site and we will always try to resolve it. Property Owner

    The accommodation is quirky and comfy, with everything you need. We particularly liked chilling out in the large lounge cum bedroom area upstairs, which was very atmospheric with the minstrel style floor gallery above us, the tapestries and drapes, and lamp light. We had the honour to be the last guests to use the current stairs before they are replaced! The barn and local area are full of literary and film history, with wonderful walks on the doorstep. The nights were so quiet, apart from the odd owl hoot! The hosts are lovely and friendly, and Kate definitely deserves recognition for her work as a harpist, with wonderful tales to tell. We hope to return!

    Thank you so much. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. The new staircase looks amazing - you will love it Property Owner

  • "If the owner is breeding dogs, and the kennels are directly outside the rental, this is material information."

    Dogs barked day and night - meaning we slept very poorly and left early. The upstairs is also VERY dark with hardly any natural light.

    Sorry you didn’t enjoy all of your stay. The kennels are well away from the property but your little dog, Monty, had a very inquisitive nature and was constantly exploring and sadly barking at our dogs, setting them off! However this wasn’t that often and certainly not in the night. The dogs are trained sheep dogs, are very sociable and very tolerant of visiting dogs as long as they don’t invade their space. I am so glad your children enjoyed cuddling the puppy and playing in the park. The property is over 1000 years old and as such has small mullion windows upstairs. The minstrels gallery benefits from a modern velux so there is indeed quite a lot of natural daylight and sunlight. Most people find the atmosphere beautiful and calming. Property Owner

  • "We had a very enjoyable week using this absolutely unique barn conversion as a base to explore Haworth and the surrounding area."

    It was great to have parking for two cars and some good dog-walking routes on the doorstep. Due to the steep open-tread stairs it would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues (or who is bothered by heights!) and it meant that our labrador was confined to the ground floor. But on the whole, a fantastic place to visit.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you had a good holiday. The stairs are actually just standard so not extra steep or anything but are open tread at the moment. The property is over 1000 years old so it has taken a lot of planning but we are putting in another staircase in a couple of weeks! It will have a half landing and will not have open tread !

  • "This property was so bad that my sister and I did not even spend one night there."

    We desperately searched for somewhere else to spend our three night break. Fortunately, we found somewhere last minute with the help of Abby at Sykes. Moody Warp Barn was just that, Moldy. Downstairs was cold and damp and the sparse comforts were either set or damp. The bedrooms smelled of damp and the sheets felt damp. The stairs to the lounge were treacherous and that should be emphasised y the owner. My dogs refused to climb them and I, at 77 found them daunting. The lounge was dark and dreary. Clearly, the photographs of Moldy Warp Barn on Sykes website have been photo shopped because in no way whatsoever is it that bright and airy. It was a huge disappointment for my sister and I.

  • "What a wonderful stay we have had at mouldy wrap barn."

    . it’s a unique and quirky building and just absolutely amazing.. it’s peaceful and tranquil and has a wonderful air of calm about it… we were blessed with the best weather for the week and the barn was a welcome from the hot heat outside the barn stayed lovely and cool while the weather was boiling … but at night the barn held the temperature well due the building being old (very old actually) it’s a beautiful build.. we had the most amazing time.. the barn has a small enclosed garden that the doggies loved, it also had its own private park that the kids took full advantage of during the evening because we spent most day out doing things… there was load to do and the owners Katie and Dave where amazing and so helpful the whole time, they where a fountain of knowledge about the area and things to do and we took every opportunity to do all the things they suggested, from Hebden bridge, eureka centre, piece museum and my favourite was definitely the steam train ride from Oxenhope various destinations. We would highly recommend this as a day trip .. Katie and Dave made the stay so magical for the kids they got to see puppies and dove babies and a sheep being sheared and they have memories that will last them a lifetime…. The barn has everything you could need to live for a week or two… it was comfortable the beds where amazingly comfortable … we had read the reviews about the stairs and although it’s probably not ideal for people with low mobility there are two down stairs bedrooms making it accessible for everyone I think… it’s been the best week we have had for a very long time, the area is amazing the barn was spectacular and the owners are friendly and helpful… they never stopped working the whole time we were there they are hard workers and still found time to advise us when we needed them to… shops are super close and there is nothing you can’t find it has everything… if you’re considering a nice break away we would recommend mouldy barn it was fantastic… getting out in the Yorkshire air is exactly what we needed… thanks both for the best stay.. we hope to return again.. xx

    Awesome- thank you so much. It was a pleasure to have you stay xx Property Owner

    This was problematic for our older parents . I think this needs to be made more obvious in the description.

    Thank you so much for your feedback and I am glad you had a lovely stay. I am sorry that the stairs proved a bit steep for two of your party and have had a long discussion about them and feel the description and photos are adequate. We have tried to make the short ascent as easy as possible and have always had extra grab handles and anti-slip steps. We have put two settees and a cushioned window seat downstairs for extra comfort. The property is over 1000 years old and as such the beams and flagged floors give it an interesting , quirky character which, I am sure you would agree, overall makes it all worthwhile in this unique property.

    The children aged 3, 8, 11 years all enjoyed running outside on walks to Penistone Moors where they climbed rocks and we came across a van selling hot chocolate and homemade brownies. We also walked to Oxenhope Park and took a football. We spent time playing board games and watched a film on a evening having snacks. The games room and park were excellent (kids loved it) and didn't want to go home at the end of the week. The owners were lovely and friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had a lovely stay and the barn was very clean. They let the children watch their dog round up the sheep, hold a puppy and stroke the goat. Puddy the cat came to say hello in a morning outside which my 3 year old niece got so excited about and now wants a kitten. Mouldy Barn took us back to our childhood when life was about going on walks, running in fields and spending quality time as a family together. Thank you for the welcoming pack on arrival.

Thick walls and flagstone floors, steep staircases, beamed ceilings and wood panelling all added to the sense of authentic, rural charm. Our days were spent exploring the world of the Bronte sisters, seeking out dramatic waterfalls or pottering through the beautiful local towns with great local pubs. Our evenings playing board games, cards or even watching a little TV in the grand high-beamed living room.

    Moldy WarpBarn is so much more than a barn -- its an experience, and a b.....y good one. There are nooks and crannies to explore, theres always something to discover. The beds are comfortable and large. Two highchairs for a 21/2 and a 1 year old very much appreciated. Two cots and room to move. The games area at the top ofthe barn proved an exciting destination. Overall an exceptional holiday accomodation. When we are next in the area this will be our first choice to look to stay.

About the location


Skipton 13 miles; Hebden Bridge 8 miles.

The small village of Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were inspired by the surrounding moorland to pen their novels, which have become classics of English Literature. Haworth is a village that time almost forgot, with its myriad of curiosity and antique shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere, all set against a framing backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. Nearby, the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, provides a lovely day out with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area abounds with popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the National Railway Museum in York. The market town of Skipton, often fondly regarded as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
