"Perfect house for us and Jill the owner was lovely."
Thanks Sarah, I’m pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"Jill and John made our holiday so comfortable."
They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and more (there were floods and the made the stay fun and possible!). We will definitely go back. The property was immaculate and so well equipped. The decor was tasteful and not over cluttered. We slept, ate, played and rested well.
"Gorgeous house, lots of space, fab hottub."
Has everything needed. Owner friendly and there if any concerns
Thankyou for your kind feedback. It was lively to meet you and hope to see you again. Jill Property Owner
"We had a lovey stay at The Hay Barn in Fishlake."
The 4 bedroom barn was perfect for the six of us who were looking for a spacious modern property for a weekend of relaxing away in the countryside. The Hay Barn is a very modern property and the owners have really thought about balancing modern facilities whilst still retaining the original charm of the barn. The kitchen is equipped with AEG appliances, the bathrooms have excellent showers with good water flow and the large smart TV is great for watching a movie at the end of the day. The garden is a great place for a BBQ, breakfast or any kind of dining and with the added canopy, you have some shelter from the elements. One of the property highlights is a huge, modern hot tub which was prepared for us by the owner and checked during our stay. A great addition and something which separates this property from one’s we have stayed at in the past. Overall, a great property for larger families or large groups wanting to spend time relaxing in a modern facility within the countryside. Thank you Gill and Jack for your hospitality!
It was lovely to meet you all, I am so pleased that you enjoyed staying at the Hay barn. Thank you for the feedback. Jill Property Owner
"Brilliant property and lovely people!"
Probably even nicer in person than the pictures. House was really spacious and very clean. Plenty of space in the garden and lovely space to sit around and BBQ as well as the hot tub of course. Nice little village with a pub and a café, would highly highly recommend staying at the Hay Barn.
"It was a beautiful house, we had lovely weather and got to enjoy the garden which had fabulous facilities."
The hot tub was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Jill the host was so kind and looked after us very well. Thank you so much. Our two young boys and dog loved it and wanted to stay!
"Absolutely amazing stay."
Couldn't fault the cottage at all. We will return without hesitation
Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, we would be delighted to see you again. Property Owner
"Superb accommodation and very comfortable throughout."
We had a great family reunion and a relaxing stay. Lots of animals locally for the kids to enjoy and they loved the freedom to cycle safely in the lane. The courtyard garden is lovely and the hot tub was very well -used The owner ,Jill was very helpful. We'd all like to return some day.
Thank you for your positive feedback. It was lovely to meet you and we would gladly welcome you back. Jill Property Owner
"We had an absolutely fantastic stay!"
The property is beautiful, the pictures really don't do it justice. We will definitely be booking to return to The Hay Barn.
Thanks for the feedback Carla, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner
"The Hay Barn is a beautiful property in a lovely rural setting & was the perfect place for 3 generations of our family to spend time together."
The interior is stunning, very spacious with great features such as exposed brickwork, beams in the bedrooms & deep window sills (ideal window seats to gaze out at the surrounding countryside views). The finish is superb and quality of furnishings, fittings, linens outstanding. Above all it feels homely and welcoming. Everything has been provided that guests could possibly need, along with some unexpected little treats on arrival - a lovely touch from our host. Photographs don’t really do it justice - we loved the look from the pictures but ‘in the flesh’ (so to speak) The Hay Barn is so much more impressive. The outside space is delightful & compliments the property. A large courtyard style area with a beautiful raised flower bed, lawn, a range of seating areas and even some ride on toys for the youngest guests. Though previously a hot tub could be could be hired in via the owner, the addition of a large permanent hot tub is a huge bonus and really added a touch of luxury to our stay. Fishlake is a rural village but there are plenty of places to visit it & things to do within a short distance. Lots of lovely walks, a luxury day spa on the doorstep, farm/wildlife parks - as well as places to go out to eat. Jill the owner was a perfect host - very friendly, helpful & responsive. She contacted me personally ahead of our stay and was very quick replying to any questions. We also really appreciated her suggestions for places to visit with our granddaughter. We had the pleasure of meeting Jill with her friend on arrival they were most welcoming - just what we needed after a drive in awful weather! Thank you again Jill for a wonderful birthday break with our family & being such a great host. We all loved our time at The Hay Barn & wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
Thank you Sheena for such a lovely review. We hope to see you again. Property Owner
"Very comfortable stay, beautifully decorated and very well equipped."
Lovely location. Some lovely little local walks directly from the barn. Our host Jill was extremely helpful and the enclosed area outside was perfect with the dog. Nice village cafe and the Old George Inn just down the road was great for a a family pub meal and dog friendly too.
"Property is excellent."
Surrounding area is a bit limiting.
I’m sorry that you found the surrounding area limiting. The village is quiet with lots of walks, a pub, a cafe and a pretty church. There are many local attractions and things to do. With the motorway and train station only 2 miles away I think we are well placed to access further afield. Towns like Doncaster, York, Hull, Sheffield etc are easily accessible and the Yorkshire wildlife park is a great day out. If you had asked I could have given you some ideas to suit your interests. Property Owner
"The Hay Barn is in a fabulous location … the place itself is very comfortable, high spec furniture and fittings, extremely comfortable ."
We enjoyed family time together , Jill (the owner) ensured everything was ready for us when we arrived . Well worth the cost highly recommended , however as other comments I would not recommend Sykes cottages.
"We really enjoyed our stay at The Hay Barn!"
The cottage was beautiful and extremely comfortable and Jill was an excellent host going out of her way to assist us. Would recommend 100%
"We stayed for 5 nights-5 generations of my family-ranging from ages 15 months to 88 years old!"
Would highly recommend the Hay barn as a place to stay but not Sykes as a company. Listing was incorrect . But the Hay Barn was lovely. Lovely peaceful spot in the the countryside. Everything we needed was in the house. Even some child’s toys in the garden. Would return again to the Hay barn once the hot tub is up and running. Jill was super helpful when we needed assistance. Many thanks Jill -you have a great property
Thanks for sending us feedback. I`m pleased that you enjoyed your stay and it was nice to meet you all, but I am disappointed that you had some issues with the listing. I would really appreciate it if you could contact me and we could discuss where we went wrong. This would help us for our future bookings. Thanks Jill Property Owner
"Had a lovely weekend with all my family, the house is beautiful - would definitely recommend"
Thanks for the lovely feedback, we hope to see you again. Jill Property Owner
"The Hay Barn has been a pleasure!"
It’s situated in a beautiful location with wonderful views. The Barn itself gave us all a warm & cosy feeling, it made us feel right at home. There is nothing I could say in fault because it was the most perfect relaxing holiday we could have wished for :-). The pictures do not do this lovely barn any justice! 110% would recommend staying here & we will definitely be booking again In the future. 10/10. Thank you for making my 30th birthday one to remember :-). Friendly, helpful and caring Owners.
Thank you for the positive feedback, I’m pleased that you enjoyed your stay. It was lovely to meet you all. Property Owner
"The Hay Barn was lovely, we had a great weekend."
Instructions to find it were good and there was plenty of parking. The garden was great for the two little dogs that came with us. All rooms were lovely, really nicely decorated and plenty of space for everyone. It’s was lovely and warm, the beds were very comfy and the kitchen well equipped. Can’t fault our stay, would love to come back. Thankyou
Thank you for your kind feedback. We would love to see you again. Property Owner
"A beautiful property in a very pleasant location, rooms were lovely and comfortable and finished to a very high standard."
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.
Thank you for your kind feedback Property Owner
"We had a fabulous time,the accommodation is second to none."
Met with owner via horse riding for the children and they couldn’t have been nicer folks. Kitchen has everything you need ,bedrooms are spacious enough for a permanent trundle bed to add to folks available to sleep. My single only improvement would be a shower in the lower bedroom it’s then possible to advertise for a disabled people. Yes we would definitely visit again. It was a 45 min drive away so perfect. Beautiful countryside around and a pub within walking distance ,what more can you ask for.
Thankyou for the kind feedback. It was lovely to meet you all. Property Owner
"We have just spent 6 days at this lovely property."
It was perfect for our needs. We had 3 generations staying together for a family celebration. The barn was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. There are many places to visit in every direction. My small grand daughters loved the Christmas decorations and pony riding. Due to the weather we didn’t use the outdoor area but it was really lovely. The addition of a new bed super king/ twin bed in downstairs room was perfect for our families needs. The host was very helpful and friendly. The surrounding land was all open and the stars and sunrises were spectacular. I would highly recommend this property.
"We had an amazing stay and couldn't ask for more from the property and the owners."
It was beautifully set up for us, very clean and spacious. The property is much bigger and more beautiful than the photos show and the hot tub is a worthy addition! There were 10 of us during the stay and we felt we had plenty of space for everyone. A great weekend and we'd love to stay again! Thank you
"We have stayed at many cottages but this was by far the best."
Rarely if ever have we got to the end of our stay wishing we could stay longer. It had everything we needed. Happily I can't find anything negative.
Thank you for the kind feedback. I’m so please that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
Better in real life as the pics are not up to date and the outdoor area has been landscaped! Had an amazing weekend, beautiful house and surroundings! Only slight criticism was the advertising implied hot tub included when it was actually on top via a private hire company… all worked fine though list should be more transparent on the information!
"Spent time with friends, Lovely and warm accommodation in a wonderful setting."
Very welcoming host, would have liked a bit longer for check out. Could do with a detailed book to work microwave being not technically minded. Great for just a couple of nights away. We have booked again.
It was lovely to meet you. Sorry about the check out but when we have guests coming in on the same day we don’t have much time. We will always give you longer if we can. Property Owner
"Great holiday accommodation for our family meet together, as we are spread out across the country."
Spacious yet having the capability to provide an enclosed courtyard to enable our grandson and dogs to roam/play safely.
"We had a fantastic stay at the Hay Barn."
It was my sons 30th birthday. The cottage is in a perfect location and has everything you could possibly need. Jill the owner is kind and helpful and Stephen from Doncaster Hot Tubs was helpful and efficient in providing the lovely hot tub. We would recommend to anyone to go to the Haybarn and would love to go again.
"What a beautiful place to stay."
So characteristic Very peaceful , surrounded by fields but also enough of local areas to visit if that’s what you want to do Met the owners and family whom were nice and friendly We were a mixed age group and we all enjoyed it and said we would definitely rebook
Thanks for the feedback. It was lovely to meet you all and of course your lovely dog. Property Owner
"An excellent stay."
A fantastic holiday home in a beautiful location made perfect by the host, Jill. I’ll definitely be looking to book here again.
Thanks for the review. It was a real pleasure to meet you all and we would love to see you again. Property Owner
"The Hay Barn provided is spacious, both inside and out, well equipped, and was an ideal retreat for us and our family."
Jill was a great host, ensuring everything was ok with the property and providing local ideas and support for us. We would definitely stay at the Hay Barn again.
"The house was in the most idilic setting surrounded by fields with lovely local walks."
We saw foxes during the days and enjoyed watching the cattle and horses graze from pur windows. The house felt like we could have been anywhere in Europe with its gorgeous courtyard and seating setting. The house was very well equipt and plenty of bathrooms to aid a large group of girls getting ready!!!
Thankyou for your feedback. It was a pleasure to meet you and I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"Whenever I arrive at a property these days I immediately think, "Would I stay here again?"
" I'm pleased if I can say "yes" straight away, and if nothing changes my mind throughout the week, I think I'm on a winner. This is one of those. It's clear that this hasn't been let for long, the place is very clean and the finish of the building shows a fine eye for detail. Very little has been spared to make it really nice. There were six of us staying at Hay Barn, with a baby and toddler. We had everything we needed, there was enough china and cutlery to be able to leave the dishwasher until it was full. Plenty of useful cooking pots too. The courtyard garden was nice and a great area to use, the little one was able to run around safely. There are nice walks around the property and chances to see some cows and wildlife. The bat which managed to get into a bedroom one evening was a treat! Anyone without a fishing landing-net in the car might have taken a different view, but I'm sure that it's a once in a lifetime occurrence both for us and the building. The owners were nearby and were very helpful if we needed anything else, thanks for the advice on where to go and the baby thermometer.
"FANTASTIC cottage/barn conversion."
The accommodation was much larger than we had expected. Family of 9 ranging from 10 months to 70s and there was sufficient room for everyone. The outdoor space is amazing and the area was wonderful. You are sufficiently secluded without being too far from local areas. Would recommend the Old Butchers for food and Truffle Lodge for a spa day/evening in Fishlake. The Hay Barn had everything we needed, from the hot tub, BBQ and amazing outdoor spaces to the finer details within the property, including the most comfortable beds, books, games and huge TVs. The views are second to none and we enjoyed our countryside walks. Would highly recommend the Hay Barn!
Thankyou for your lovely feedback Property Owner
"Absolutely stunning place loved it"
"Beautiful farmhouse, perfect family accommodation with everything needed."
Owner so helpful and accommodating, will definitely return.
Thankyou for the kind review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to you visiting us again. Property Owner
"Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the hay barn!"
It was an amazing chilled, Comfortable and peaceful stay! The accommodation is so clean , spacious and beautifully decorated. The garden is very spacious and tranquil. We will defo be going back . Only downside is we paid for a hot tub which we weren’t very impressed with but that was down to the hot tub company and not the owners of the Hay Barn
Thankyou for your feedback. I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the Hay Barn. This is our first year hosting, we are hiring in the hot tubs to see how popular they are before we invest in one. I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the hot tub and hope that it hasn't spoilt your holiday. Up to now we have only had positive responses about the hot tubs and the service from the hire company. Property Owner
"Spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped."
It was a pleasure to stay there for the long weekend.
Thank you for your feed back. It was a pleasure to meet you all. Sykes have recently taken some more photos to show off the landscaping and other improvements. They have not been uploaded to our advert yet. I hope that you weren’t too disappointed with the accuracy of the listing. Property Owner
"We went there for my wife’s 30th party and everything was amazing."
The cottage is so big, new and comfortable. They also have a professional barbecue that you can use, and it was really nice to cook in it. Perfect location in the country side, loads of beautiful places to walk around.
Thankyou for your positive feedback, It was lovely to meet you and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"I booked the hay barn for my friends 40th birthday party and what an amazing stay it was!"
The place is absolutely beautiful and even better face to face. Its bigger inside then on the photos. The landlady was OK for us to hire a hot tub for the weekend and it was sorted between herself and the company so that was great. The beds are so comfy, everything we needed was provided. We all had a nice walk to the pub in the village for food and we felt so welcomed. We would definitely come again and give our stay a 10 out of 10.
Thank you so much for the positive feedback. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"Lovely barn property."
