"Lovely barn everything you could need nearby all the shops in Halifax Helpful ..."
Lovely barn everything you could need nearby all the shops in Halifax Helpful friendly hosts allowed us to check in early due to housemove
"Loverly property will come back ."
"Excellent hosts and would recommend this property"
"The barn was very comfortable and we particularly liked the enclosure garden."
The only comment would be the outside eating area could have had better chairs as they were rusty and one was broken. However it didn't affect our enjoyment of the holiday.
We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We are very sorry about the chairs - and had not noticed one was broken. They will be replaced! Property Owner
"Lovely little gem of a cottage, very comfortable & cosy."
Owners recommendations in their information pack are spot on & really helpful. Lovely bottle of red left as a 'welcome' too. Really friendly local pub & very welcoming to our dog too. Will definitely be coming back.
"What a beautiful self contained apartment."
Absolutely loved our three night stay and a very friendly owner/host. Spotlessly clean and well equipped - for a self catering apartment. Missed out on the bottle of wine in the fridge and the entrance off the main road is a bad one pulling out, in terms of visibility (could do with a convex mirror on the gate opposite) but nothing that spoiled our stay.
"Lovely property, great location, good pub just up the road."
Hosts Mark and Jill could not have been more helpful or friendly. Only very slight criticism was shower was only Luke warm but that is only a very minor point. Would certainly recommend it. Rob and Linzi.
"Out of all the places I have stayed this was by far the best one."
It was spacious, comfortable and very homely. The bed is super comfy and I slept better than I do in my own bed. Being close to the pub was perfect as I would go off for a walk then “accidentally” finish at the pub. As I had two dog there I cleaned up every day and tried to keep the place as tidy as I keep my own home. I didn’t use cooker, mircowave or dishwasher as I ate out most meals. I enjoyed staying here so much I looked to see if I book the following week as I had 2 weeks off work. Thank you to the hosts for the info about walks ect. Look forward to coming back.
"Lovely place to stay."
Very comfortable with all you need for a weeks stay. Great surroundings too. Would defo recommend
"Great accomodation,thanks Paul & Anne"
"I booked Ash Tree Barn for a short break to celebrate my husband's birthday and I certainly picked the right place!"
The setting is perfect, surrounded by open countryside and with walks from the door. The barn is beautifully decorated and immaculate. It is warm and cosy, with a really comfortable bed and sofas. The kitchen is fully equipped and off it there is an enclosed garden with table and chairs to sit out on a sunny day. We drove down to Luddendenfoot and walked along the canal to Hebdon Bridge, a really lovely walk. There are so many walks in the area, we will certainly be returning and would not hesitate to recommend Ash Tree Barn.
"Fabulous 4 night stay in a lovely barn in the countryside."
Peaceful location. Well equipped comfortable property, especially the bed. Perfect for couples. Great pub right next door and so many walks to go on. Would highly recommend
"A lovely property."
The owners have thought of everything. The local pub 100 yards down the road is lovely too. We will definitely be staying again.
"Our third stay and just as lovely as previous stays."
Could do with a couple of oven dishes for those who want to cook but other than that a great stay with super facilities.
"Great stay, great amenities."
We've stayed in many service ced apartments and Air B&B, and there is always something missing from them. But this place has it all. Thank you Jill and Mark
"Great place,great location"
"Very comfortable, lovely location."
We really enjoyed our stay here. Will look to stay here again.
"What a gem of a place to stay."
Everything clean tidy, well laid out, great facilities, Stones throw from a great Pub, excellent place to stay with our dog. Bed was very comfy, TV area was very cosey while the wind and rain was doing its best outside.. Great area to walk as long or short as you want, with fantastic views.. Would definitely recommend Ash Tree Barn... Or maybe I should keep this place a secret just for us...
"Lovely place to stay with stunning views."
Local pub five minute's walk served excellent Sunday roast. Plenty to do in the area.
"The property was beautifully presented, in a lovely location."
It was ideal for walking as well as tourist sites being within a short drive away. We had such a relaxing holiday, I would definitely recommend Ash Tree Barn. Thank you
"Excellent property and very private, a very nice stay."
"Ash Tree Barn was the perfect place for us to stay in this beautiful area."
We loved walking each day, and being able to set off from the cottage without taking the car. Stopping of on the way home at the Cat in the Wall for a pint after a great walk is the perfect way to end the day. The cottage was welcoming, and comfortable. Thank you.
"Lovely cosy accommodation in great location."
Property had everything I needed and the surrounding areas are beautiful. I stayed with my dog and we enjoyed lots of walks and dog friendly pubs. I would definitely recommend and would stay again.
"Fantastic property for 2 and a labrador."
Very clean. Lovely welcome by the owner. Ideal location for our holiday. Great dog friendly pub 2 mins walk.
"Brilliant place to stay."
Would highly recommend if staying with your dog. Ours spent lots of time in the garden.
"Absolutely gorgeous property."
Thankyou very much for having us.
"Exactly as described, Perfect for a break away."
Some lovely walks, with pubs close by for a drink or some home cooked food. Highly recommended and would definitely return for a short break.
"Omg it's beautiful, so comfy cosy nice and warm."
The views are stunning didn't want to get out of bed on a morning. Would recommend , and would stay again. Thank you for an amazing stay.
"A lovely comfortable place to stay."
"Lovely cottage with plenty of upstairs space for our family to relax & sleep in after a fun day exploring."
The surrounding countryside is beautiful whilst the big cities of Manchester, Leeds & Bradford are less than an hour away.
"Lovely property and owners who very kindly left a bottle of wine for us, they were there if needed but left us to get on with our break, the property has everything needed for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful area and is spotlessly clean."
Local pub is minutes away walking and serves good selection of food, we would not hesitate to rent this property again.
"Ash tree barn was perfect for our weeks holiday,the weather was good so we could get out on our bikes ect, but if the weather had not been good we would of been happy staying in the barn for the week."
"Perfect place to relax and recharge!"
Everything you need and yet uncluttered space!
"A lovely location for exploring the countryside"
"Lovely accommodation for a visit to Calderdale."
Great location for access to beautiful countryside. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Enclosed garden ideal for our dog. Pleased to recommend
"Very comfortable base to explore beautiful scenery, everything we needed including a dog friendly pub on our doorstep."
"We really enjoyed our stay in Yorkshire, a great spot to go walking."
The information pack provided by the owners was extremely useful and was full of useful tips. A bottle of wine and milk was also provided which was a nice touch. The only downside was it was noisy when it rained at night with the living space being up in the roof so I would not recommend to a light sleeper. The space has been cleverly used but it would be a squeeze for 4 people in my opinion. Overall we had a great stay and would visit Yorkshire again.
"Relaxing, and a great centre for walking and enjoying the moors."
"Ash Tree Barn was the perfect place for us to stay for our visit to Calderdale."
The place was beautifully done, comfortable and had all the facilities we required with a young family. The hosts were very friendly and approachable, and sorted out a query we had about the washing facilities promptly. The location is great for access to the countryside and local towns such as Hebden Bridge. There is also a beautiful garden area which would be brilliant for kids, but we were a bit unlucky with the Yorkshire weather!
"Booked for a birthday weekend we really enjoyed our stay at Ash Tree Barn."
Very comfortable space with a well equipped kitchen and a bottle of wine to welcome us. A lovely touch, thank you. Own outside space was a bonus although the weather didn't permit prolonged use. Great views towards Stoodley Pike and open countryside. Quiet location we had a lovely 5 mile circular walk calling at the Cat I'th Well pub before the final push up the hill for home. Would highly recommend. Our only comment was that the 'how to get there' instructions could include a grid reference or what3words location to pin point exactly where the accommodation is before setting off from home. This suggestion is not just for Ash Tree Barn but for all accommodation.
"Couple stayed here with our dog on the bank holiday weekend, beatiful location perfect for walks on the dale."
The Cat I'nt The Well was a nice pub down the hill where our dog could roam the beer garden. Lovely little cottage plenty of privacy and all the facilities we required.
"Ash Tree Barn is a lovely space, very well equipped and with stunning views."
Lots of lovely walks and areas to explore nearby. Very welcoming and friendly hosts.
"We really enjoyed staying at the property and it was very well equipped."
A very picturesque location and the owners provided excellent instructions to find the property and the pack at the property was filled with lots of useful information on the local area and local walks we could go on, together with restaurant and takeaway reviews which were invaluable. Only complaint would be that a king size bed would be so much better. A great base for exploring West Yorkshire.
"We ( 2 adults and children aged 9 and 10) all enjoyed the location of this lovely farm house."
The layout is cleverly done and the children loved the freedom of wandering outside playing on the swings and looking after the chickens! The owners were on site and so friendly when we saw them but their information book told you all you needed to know about the accommodation and the area. The views are wonderful and the location is an ideal base for exploring both Yorkshire and Lancashire. It was a super relaxing break. Would love to return.
"The accomodation was well appointed and had everything we needed."
The hosts left a bottle of wine and free range eggs which was a really nice touch. The sofa bed and zed bed were not very comfortable.
"We chose Ash Tree Barn primarily due to it's location to Halifax centre."
However, the description and photos really made up our minds and we were not disappointed. On arrival we found Ash Tree Farm eggs and a bottle of wine as a welcome gift, what a lovely thought. Everything was as described and more. The lounge was cosy and comfortable as was the bed. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs, especially the assortment of cleaning products which really impressed us. There is nothing we would criticise at all, the owners have done a great job and we will definitely be returning for another visit.
"Really enjoyed my stay at Ash Tree Barn."
The accommodation is wonderfully cosy and relaxing. Welcoming host, walks from the front door and a cozy pub just round the corner....what more could you ask for. I will be visiting again!!
"Our family of four, plus Bruce the dog, enjoyed a couple of nights here."
A two minute walk to the local pub, which I would recommend based in the portion sizes alone! The weather wasn't great, but the facilities allowed our 8 and 4 year old to be entertained regardless of the weather. Really lovely place, and the owner was very friendly. The fresh eggs were beautiful and the bottle of wine a really nice touch.
"The location of this loft apartment was perfect."
The apartment is roomy and well presented. It was clean and well prepared and the hosts were great, making it clear they are there to help while giving us space and privacy. This had all the facilities for a great break self catering and enjoying the West Yorkshire outdoors. I would recommend this apartment, and will stay here again next time I am in the area.
"Ash Tree Barn is a lovely family run business."
The owners were really conscientious, with thoughtful personal touches. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough!
"Absolutely loved Ash Tree Barn."
Bottle of wine and the eggs (which were amazing ) from the owners was nice. The studio plan of the apartment really suited us even though we had 2 adults 2 children and a dog. The place was spotless and so cosy. Good facilities in the kitchen and nice bathroom and shower
"No wear to hang clothing kept hit head on loo ceiling not a lot to do in area ..."
No wear to hang clothing kept hit head on loo ceiling not a lot to do in area local pub cross keys not very clean charged to much for drinks pritty good taxi service
"Ash tree is a wonderful place to stay , the location , setting and scenery made it very special."
The open plan living and sleeping area gave spectacular views over the green fields and the big windows let in plenty of light.. We had a dog with us and there was plenty of local walks near by, some a bit tough on the legs but really enjoyable. It had all the facilities you needed for our two week stay and was very peaceful. The owner's where always willing to help with anything you needed, but left you alone just to get on with your holiday , which was great.. There was a pub 2 minutes walk away, called the Crossroads - We had some good meals in there, the pies and fish & chips where simply gorgeous. If you wanted a more varied range , go into Sowerby Bridge and you will find loads of pubs and eateries. We found a new Indian restraunt called Rajpoot and the food was gorgeous. Overall your holiday is what you make it and Ash Tree Barn is a fantastic base with everything you need for a great holiday.
"The owners of the cottage were really friendly & welcoming & the farm eggs & bottle of wine were a lovely gesture."
However,the accommodation just wasn't for us. It was very basic and minimalist & generally failed to provide the wow factor. We found the bed to be very uncomfortable & found the open plan set up less than homely. It really just wasn't our kind of place. I do feel however that it's a lovely cosy place for a couple just not suitable to share with children (lack of privacy). maybe some privacy screens would help. It was a shame we didn't enjoy our stay but it wasn't the fault of the owners it was just personal taste.
"Would certainly recommend the property, it was ideal for us."
Scenery is spectacular. The barn is advertised as a sleeps four accommodation. There were only two of us which was perfect. There was a double sofa bed for two extra people and as it has an open plan living/sleeping room privacy could be an issue.
"Kitchen needed to be cleaned before we could unload our things."
Bathroom/toilet area hygiene was very poor especially around basin and toilet area. Happy with the facilities, area and welcoming owners.
Thank you for your feedback; our sincere apologies for your disappointment. As you can see from our other reviews, the standard of the apartment in terms of its cleanliness and facilities is high. Unfortunately, on the week you visited, we were called away and had to rely on a friend to manage the changeover. We will ensure that this will not happen again. Thank you again for your comments.

"Ash Tree Barn reviews Reviews 4."
5 Very good 2 reviews on Google Most relevant Newest Highest rating Lowest rating Shoane Nidd Shoane Nidd-EDIT4/5 a day ago on Google A lovely apartment in a great location. We are a family of 4 with a dog in tow. The beds were comfortable and clean with a sizeable sofa bed. The hosts were very friendly and kind, even leaving us a New Years Eve bottle of bubbly. The local pub (The New Inn) was wonderful and we enjoyed a couple of really tasty meals there. The staff were so friendly and the service is fantastic. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend Ash Tree Barn to anyone who loves the great out doors! So many beautiful walks and outdoor activities.
"We were so thrilled with Wainstalls (Sykes Cottage)."
The owners greeted us on arrival and showed us round and then we settled in to enjoy our stay there. The House was wonderful - very modern and so comfortable with FANTASTIC views over the countryside. We cannot fault anything about our stay there and would certainly recommend it and would certainly book it again if we were coming to the North. THANK YOU.
"Wanted for nothing, everything we needed was provided."
Friendly owners. Would definitely recommend.
"This little converted barn is lovely, very well maintained and clean."
It has everything you need for a relaxing break from the norm. The owners are lovely too.
"Had a lovely holiday."
Barn was very spacious and comfortable. Great view from the feature window. Just the job to explore the fabulous country side.
"Maybe I didn't read it properly but thought it was a one bed with sleeping facilities in the lounge but it was all open plan effectively a studio with separate kitchen."
Turned out ok as Grandson was only with us for two nights. Other than that it was a lovely place to stay and owners on site were very nice, especially Herbie the cat. Last night we walked to The Crossroads and had a superb meal must say book if you can as very busy. Visit Halifax and Hebden Bridge.
"The Ash Tree Barn was a brilliant place to spend a week."
Had a great time and Jill and Mike were very nice they showed us around when we arrived. The place was actually better than the pictures online. If you want a nice quiet place to use as a base for visiting Yorkshire or Lancashire this is it.
"Ash Tree Barn is excellent modern accommodation with literally everything supplied ."
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Highly recommended .
"This accomodation is clean and comfortable however there are some aspects that future hirers should be aware of."
Firstly the pictures in the listing, whilst accurate give the impression that the entrance is beneath the large windows wheras this is the opposite side and we initially were unsure we had found the right house. The drive to the property is full of deep potholes and could cause some damage to vehicles with low ground clearance, our 4x4 was perfect. There is little space in the property to hang clothes and no drawers to put personal things beyond a bedside cabinet. The most disappointing feature was the large window at the end of the property which in the photos looks out over the hills and the countryside, what is not clear is that there is a pavement and a busy road between the propery and the view so lying in bed with the curtains isn't really an option. So a nice propery but with disappointing aspects. ************************************************************* OWNER RESPONSE**************************** We are very sorry you were disappointed in some aspects of our property.Â We very rarely receive any negative feedback, as you will see from our other reviews.Â It is made clear in the description that we are a farm, and therefore the track leading to the house reflects this. You are the first to comment on storage space, and in response we have added more coat hangers to the hanging spaces. Our road leads into our small village and therefore the only traffic is local. Perhaps because it was bailing time, you are commenting on the tractors which are obviously crucial to our rural community. We are nevertheless pleased, despite your disappointments, you saw fit to still grade us as 'met expectations'. ***
"Enjoyed a lovely weekend away."
Came up to see Leeds United on the Friday and decided on making a long weekend. Glad we found this little gem. So clean and spacious. Will definitely be back.
"Fabulous place to stay ."
The owners had thought of everything you might need even doggy towels
"Booked as last minute weekend away, lovely and quiet, cottage lovely and very comfortable!"
Would use again!
"Both Jill and Mark made us very welcome on arrival and were on hand if necessary although thankfully no problems arose."
The Barn was spotless and was in a lovely location so we had a lovely holiday despite the weather!
"Very accommodating friendly hosts."
Beautiful location lots to do and see. Cottage was very comfortable and stylish would revisit.
"Great location in beautiful countryside."
Good access to local amenities and towns/pubs/supermarkets. Lots of nice walking to be done locally and not far to travel to access the Yorkshire Dales etc
"Comfortable and thoughtfully designed accommodation in a quiet location, perfect for a break away."
Good location for walking and touring. Several pubs within walking distance and serving food.
"It was a lovely place to stay would definitely go back!"
we wished we could of gone for longer there is lots to do round there, everything was more then what we was expecting, lovely view from window. We cant wait to book again
"We had a wonderful stay in the cottage."
Very cosy, lovely view and friendly hosts.
"This lovely converted barn totally lived up to expectations."
Situated central for all interesting and beautiful places to visit we always had somewhere new to explore. Great base for a walking holiday whether you prefer a real long trek or like us picturesque gentle walks incorporating a pub lunch as reward. We have stayed in many cottages all over the country but this came out the best. The contemporary design, enclosed garden (perfect for our dog) and friendly hosts made for an unforgetable stay. We will definately return hopefully soon.

About the location
Hebden Bridge 4 miles; Halifax 5 miles.
Luddenden is a conservation village in Calderdale, close to Hebden Bridge. The community is first mentioned in 1284, and in 1375 a corn mill was moved from Warley Town to exploit the Luddenden Brook. Nearby, the attractive town of Hebden Bridge is the home to the picturesque Rochdale Canal and a delightful Victorian railway station. The town of Mytholmroyd is an easy drive away, the birthplace of Poet Laureate Ted Hughes, and famous for the Cragg Vale Coiners. This is excellent walking country, with the National Trust Hardcastle Crags and the Pennine Way, plus the area hosted the Tour De France in 2014. Enjoy scenic drives and cycling across the moors, whilst nearby Haworth boasts the Parsonage Museum commemorating the famous Bronte family who lived there. The area is also a must for steam railway enthusiasts who will enjoy the thriving Worth Valley Railway, whilst the highly-acclaimed Eureka Museum in Halifax is noted for its unique Piece Hall and its Victorian architecture.
