  • "Gorgeous barn conversion , so peaceful and some lovely walks ."

    The best fish & chips , bakers & butchers. The barn had everything we needed it was spacious , warm & beautifully decorated . We saw deer in the garden , loved listening to the owls. It was perfectly located to visit different areas and we would highly recommend it , we will definitely be returning . The owners were lovely & left you to enjoy your holiday but they were there if you needed anything which is how we like it.

  • "Despite the weather the holiday was made great by the quality and character of the let."

    We were not disappointed by any aspect of the accommodation and as this was our first experience of this kind of holiday it left us keen to explore more. The kitchen was well equipped and the bed was comfortable and there was nothing to criticise. A great experience overall.

  • "Spent 5 nights in this beautiful property and couldn’t really find any fault with it."

    It is surrounded by amazing countryside with many places to walk. We took our dog and although the garden is not fully enclosed it wasn’t a problem as we put him on a long lead so he could move around relatively freely. The owners were very friendly and their property was on site so if any problems did occur it would be easy to contact them.

  • "Disappointed that the outdoor space was not dog friendly, it needs to be properly fenced off to allow the dog to run free."

    Also should be more private so you can enjoy the outdoor space. We found the barn to be quite dark, due to lack of natural light?. Couldn't understand why the East barn has 2 skylights in the roof & the west barn has none ?

    The barn is grade 2 listed the openings could only be replaced with what was originally there but we are looking into other ways to get air flow in to the barn. We are sadly governed by what the conservation officers will allow. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed in this cottage, and the one next door many Timex now and would not hesitate to return."

    We do however have a couple of comments to make. While the cottage is thankfully pet friendly, the outdoor space is not. The seating area at the rear is very open, there is a public footpath running along the length of the seating area, which is not a problem, but if the seating area, of both properties was fenced off, not blocked, but a physical barrier, doesn't need to be very high, then you could be out there and let your pet be untethered. We think that the outside seating is important due to there being very little natural light in the living room. The second point would be the bedroom. It is very comfortable, but would benefit from better blinds on the door and window. At this time of year it gets light very early and so does the bedroom, better blinds would be beneficial.

    It's a shame the living area has no window in the back wall to take advantage of the lovely views and to let in much needed natural light (we needed the lights on all the time). A few touches would have made it more comfortable such as a rug on the lounge floor (we found the laminate very slippery) and curtains in the bedroom to reduce the light in the morning which woke us very early.

    . Very relaxing, peaceful, fantastic walks from the doorstep, very dog friendly, only one small wish for an enclosed area outside the barn at the back to let the dog out by herself off her lead, but other wise perfect .

  • "Generally a good let and well equipped."

    The only let down was the interior lighting. Due to the layout of the property there is little natural light and on a dull day the interior lights have to be switched on. The existing interior lighting is really not bright enough to address this problem, and reading is quite difficult. Cleaning cloths for the kitchen would be useful to keep the surfaces clean. To be requested to strip the bed on departure is unusual and I wonder if the holiday maker should be expected to do this ?

  • "We loved our stay at Lowdale Barns West."

    A spacious cottage for 2 in a quiet setting surrounded by countryside and within easy reach of the coast and the Yorkshire Moors. Tastefully furnished, and one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. Almost everything we could have needed was provided and we were very pleased with the welcome pack and other extras left for us - the bottle of Prosecco was a lovely surprise! The underfloor heating kept us cosy and was easy to operate, as were all the kitchen appliances. If we were going to be picky, a mop and bucket would be a good addition to the cleaning materials (which were otherwise excellent) to make it easier to quickly clean the floors, especially as we have a dog. Overall, we were pleased with the cleanliness of the place, though there were quite a few dust bunnies under the bed! One other slight issue was the temperature of the water in the shower, which we got the hang of eventually but was never what you would call hot. However, this was a minor niggle and we were sad to leave to come home. We'd definitely stay there again.

  • "We absolutely loved staying here."

    It was our first visit to Lowdale Barns West and we found it exceptionally clean and comfortable. It was easy to find following the directions that were given. The lovely owner left us some beautiful flowers she’d grown in her garden and wine to enjoy while there. The cottage was located in a lovely village just a short walk to the railway station with trains going into Whitby and beyond including the North Yorkshire Steam Railway (pick up the train at the same station in Whitby). There’s also a Park and Ride into Whitby just a short drive away. I can’t really find any negatives other than the water for the shower could have been a bit warmer and last longer but it wasn’t a huge issue for us. We’ll definitely be booking again for another stay.

  • "We found the cottage to be a good place to stay in the area, a very good base, in a nice village that offers all you need."

    The cottage itself was clean and well presented, we have stayed in the next door cottage in the past and expected no less. However, a couple of things have put us off revisiting this property. While the equipment provided was in good condition, and it may seem picky, but there was not a suitable (for 2) casserole dish, there was just one individual pie dish, the instructions for the microwave were not for the microwave in the property, and maybe the main point would be the heat, or lack of, in the shower. We thought this was just in our cottage but we asked the people in the adjacent cottage and they said the same. We had a good stay in Sleights and would likely return, but not to this cottage.

    The hot water of the shower only lasted minutes before it started to cool down leaving us little time to wash hair and enjoy it after a days walking etc. The duvet wasn't sufficient to cover two adults in a double bed and the pillows were extremely flat and, with no additional pillows, resulted in us purchasing 2 more pillows to aid sleep.

  • "This cottage was very disappointing."

    It had absolutely no atmosphere and was not at all homely. A rug in each room would make a good addition to make the place look less like a box. It certainly wasn’t furnished to the high standard as described by Sykes, but was furnished with very basic items from IKEA. The sofa and chair in the living area were extremely hard and uncomfortable as was the mattress which was so soft you could both feel and hear the springs when you moved. The pillows had some kind of inner protector which made it sound like you were sleeping on a packet of crisps. The 2 pull down blinds in the bedroom do not stop the light coming in and as there are lights outside each door it is difficult to get off to sleep. Black out blinds would improve matters. We only had contact with the owner when we arrived and she had to go into the next cottage to borrow their pint of milk. On entering the cottage, we found a packet of Blue Riband biscuits which we thought was a bit mean after reading some previous reviews and compared with other greeting gifts we have received. We also found she had provided just 1 toilet roll. There was no toilet brush which one would have expected, the cold-water tap dripped constantly and the toilet seat moved when sat on. In addition, the grassed area at the rear needed cutting so as to make it usable. The owners mowed the grass on their own private pitch and put course to the front of their house so it would have been nice to have had the small area of grass behind the cottage mowed. In conclusion, this is the first time in 50 years of holidaying that we have been asked to strip the bed before we left!! What on earth do they do between the departing guests leaving at 10am and the arriving guests turning up at 3pm. Judging by the number of cobwebs everywhere, not that much. We will not be returning.

  • "When we booked way back during 2017, we booked both the East and the West Barns at the same time!"

    One was for the EAST Barn which we took at Xmas Time when we had a very enjoyable experience - nothing to do with it being Xmas time, see our review which is currently posted on your website and couldn't really have been bettered. The second booked - WEST, is the one we used during the week just ended during June and although one might say that they are broadly similar, being adjoined, but nothing could have been further from the truth. I shall endeavour to explain the differences which was to cause us a fair few difficulties during the week and proved to be a serious disappointment. *That said - all things other than for what is contained in the following explanation - were on a par with our previous experience during our stay at Xmas in the EAST Barn, so would definitely give 10 out of 10 for the rest. Major differences:Bedroom - pretty much the same in layout (Minus the Bathroom) but the Bed was smaller and much less comfortable PLUS - there was an overlong "step down" from the bedroom to the corridor leading to the living room area. The Bathroom isn't En Suite and doesn't have any extractor Fan and one has to fiddle about in the dark looking for the lightswitch before entering - and this is emmediately after stepping down from the bedroom. *We preferred not to leave the light on all night - this shouldn't have been required anyway. Being rather long in the tooth, having dodgy knees and being a tad unsteady on my feet, plus Diabetic to boot, my numerous trips during every night resulted in numerous trips and falls during the course of the week. On return journey from the Bathroom, even though the "step up" is indeed rather high compared to the norm, I appreciate that much younger and fitter people might comment on this but manage it as fit people would - and get on with things. I only mention this as a precaution - would recommend that you could perhaps use this as a caution to aid the unwary when booking. We would definitely consider a return to this venue - but NEVER ever book the WEST again, it would always be the EAST should we ever return. The East living area is much more open and spacious and has a Larger Dining Table. To summarise - The Venue and the hosts were as excellant as on our previous visit, cannot be faulted. The WEST Barn leaves a little to be desired and proved a disappointment. The EAST Barn - see my previous posting after our stay at Xmas 2017 - Brilliant!!! Sorry this review couldn't have been positive for our stay this time around. Best wishes Alan & Sue K
