  • "We really enjoyed our stay at 1 Manor Barn Cottages, lovely position and spacious well appointed accommodation as described."

    The cottages are designed for peace and privacy and we will probably return at some point as we visit the Dales most years.

  • "This is the perfect cottage, probably the best we've had - cannot fault it at all."

    Thanks for a great holiday.

  • "A very comfortable base from which to explore the dales by car or walking."

    The accommodation was very much to our liking and the location excellent.

  • "The cottage was excellent."

    The layout worked really well for us - grandparents, parents and two children aged 8 & 2. The kitchen was very well equipped - plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses and all the pans and utensils you would expect. It was easy to get to the key places in the area we wanted to visit - the Forbidden Corner, Aysgarth Falls, Bolton Castle and the Wensleydale Creamery. We were able to arrange a Tesco delivery for the bulk of our groceries and then used local shops in Leyburn and Hawes to top up as needed. We were very lucky with the weather and all in all had an excellent time!

    a great location for a peaceful holiday with lovely walks on the doorstep.

  • "The cottage was delightful and we have stayed there 3 times before and enjoyed it."

    This time however the nights were spoilt because the house next door had a refrigeration plant motor which disrupted the tranquility of the area and kept me awake at night. We come to the Yorkshire Dales to enjoy the peace and quiet.

  • "Great cottage."

    Immaculately clean, well equipped and good space for six. Carperby a lovely village and the pub food very good. The walk along the top to Askrigg and Castle Bolton a must.

  • "It was unfortunate that insufficient laminating was done to allow us to have access to appliance details, and it would have been good to have some local walks details."

    Perhaps instead of isolating everything, the books, maps etc. could be split into two halves with one being made available while the other is in 'isolation', then swapping them for the next tenants.

  • "Beautiful cottage plenty of space for the three grandchildren(15, and 19) that travelled with us."

    Probably not enough toilet rolls for us all. When we first arrived we ended up on the Manor Farm Road, as it is the same postcode as Manor Barn. Thus there was a slight muddle when we had our Asda shopping delivered. Prior to us setting off for Carperby I did have a phone call from Asda saying there was 2 deliveries for the post code I had entered. All was resolved when the shopping arrived. Just a bit confusing, as there is a number 1 Manor Barn and I Manor Farm down different drives. There is no sign at the end of the drive we had to use to say that MANOR BARN is down this drive. As usual we had a great holiday.

  • "Instructions on access to cottage confusing."

    Key to front door left under flower pot at rear. No explanation about this and we tried to open the rear door. Unable to do this as it was locked on the inside. We then tried the front door. Left us feeling anxious about gaining entry especially when tired after a long journey. Inside the cottage is a folder with very explicit instructions to things including how to gain entry to the cottage!!

  • "The directions to the cottage could have been clearer."

    The photograph is of the front of the property but the directions take you to the rear. There is a board that has No1 on it but nothing else except a picture of an owl! We encountered a very rude gentleman who wouldn’t allow us to park just to enable us to check we had the right location. The cottage is lovely but there were some minor points that let it down. The bed in the second bedroom hadn’t been made up so we had to do it. There was no towel or toilet roll in the downstairs toilet, there was no bath mat to prevent slipping in the bath and no mat to stand on in either of the bathrooms and no hair drier. We could also have done with something more substantial to wash up with in addition to the small cloth. There is a dishwasher but this would have been a waste with the few items we had to wash up each day. Generally, however, it was very roomy and comfortable and in a lovely location.

  • "There is a pub within walking distance but no other shops."

    It's good to be prepared and bring some essentials for breakfast. The cottage has provide some tea/coffee and milk which was nice when we arrived. The cottage was really comfortable for 4 adults and our baby. Plenty of space to relax in the cottage when we needed a day in, some DVDs to relax and lots of info on walks in the local area.

  • "Some of the exterior lights weren't working."

    Had to use a torch in the dark once we discovered that as there are a few steps and a couple of gates to get to the front door from the car parking space. There was also a very limited supply of washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets(just one!) and no spare loo rolls. A sign on the road would be helpful as the driveway to neighbouring properties is very close. One of the cottage owners wasn't too pleased as two of our cars came into the wrong driveway to start with! Apart from that the cottage was very comfortable with all the facilities we needed, and in a quite, convenient village.

  • "Excellent accommodation home from home."

    Very well equipped, we were snowed in for a couple of days and were so warm and comfortable.The owner Andrew took the trouble to phone to check that we were ok and also arranged for more logs for the log burner, we were very surprised by his caring attitude. This is not just a holiday home you can tell that it is used by the owners because of all the little touches.

The property

A stone-built, semi-detached barn conversion situated at the eastern end of the lovely Dales village of Carperby, just six miles from Leyburn in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Located in this small village, and surrounded by beautiful Dales countryside, this delightful holiday home provides an ideal base for a variety of groups, from a small family to a group of friends wishing to get away from it all and enjoy a taste of real country living.

Spacious throughout, the property retains much of the charm of the original dwelling, including exposed stonework, old ceiling beams and a touch of the modern, with a beautiful open plan kitchen/diner.

The main sitting room features a cosy woodburner set on a stone plinth, and the lovely furnishings, good views of the garden and the surrounding countryside make it a great place to relax.

The open plan, farmhouse-style kitchen is a great addition to the accommodation and provides a first class place to prepare sumptuous meals and sit round to discuss the adventures of the day.

Three well-laid out bedrooms with lovely features and the master bedroom with a luxurious en-suite further enhance the credentials of this superb holiday retreat.

A nice-sized garden makes a good spot for sitting out and enjoying an evening tipple, relaxing and reflecting on the day’s activities.

Set close to the 2014 Tour de France route, this property is ideal for cycling fans who would like to take in the stunning views whilst following this wonderful route.

Wensleydale is a beautiful area of the Yorkshire Dales and visitors can enjoy picturesque walks from the cottage's doorstep to spectacular Aysgarth Falls and atmospheric Bolton Castle.

For those who wish to discover more of the surrounding area, why not explore Askrigg (of All Creatures Great and Small fame), Kettlewell (where the film Calendar Girls was set), historic Middleham and Ripon, as well as the lively market towns of Leyburn and Richmond.

Also for visitors with children, nearby Forbidden Corner and the Lightwater Valley theme park provide brilliant days out.

This cottage provides all the ingredients for that well-deserved break in the country.

About the location


Aysgarth 1 mile; Castle Bolton 2 miles; Leyburn 6 miles.

This idyllic Wensleydale village is situated in a walker’s paradise, close to Castle Bolton, Bolton Hall, Leyburn and the famous Aysgarth Falls. During the 17th century, Carperby was an important centre for Quakerism and the largest building today is the classically styled Friends Meeting House which overlooks the market cross and village green. The popular village pub serves good food and an excellent range of real ales and is the main focal point of village life. Nearby, Redmire is on the Wensleydale Railway, which features steam locomotives during the summer and has regular special events. This is an ideal location for walking and touring the many attractions of Wensleydale and Swaledale - within a fifteen minute drive are historic Richmond and Middleham, as well as the attractive market towns of Bedale and Leyburn. There are numerous restaurants and award-winning pubs too, and nearby attractions include Fountains Abbey, Wensleydale Creamery and Rope Factory and Lightwater Valley. The nearest town, Leyburn, is dominated by its large market square, which still boasts a lively Friday market. The town has much to offer with its many craft shops, galleries and tea rooms. Also within easy reach are many other attractions, notably the Constable Burton Hall and Gardens with extensive parkland and woodland walks, the Forbidden Corner with its underground passages to explore, and of course the lovely Georgian town of Richmond with its fine castle ruins. Visit Bolton Castle, with its mighty towers and rectangular courtyard, one of the finest preserved medieval castles in Yorkshire. Dating back to 1378, much of the castle survived the orders to destroy famous Yorkshire castles, issued by Parliament in The Civil War. It is also located perfectly for cycling; the famous opening stages of the 2014 Tour de France passed just over a mile away. For the adventurous, mountain biking routes run from the door, over Preston moor and into wild Swaledale.
