  • "We (6 adults and a two year old) have just returned from a lovely few days at Mosscarr barn."

    The house is outstanding, we haven’t stayed at a Sykes cottage before which was so well presented and supplied. The kitchen is amazingly well stocked with every tiny thing you might need, which was very helpful, there was a lovely welcome basket and a file full of useful tips and places to visit. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful and the lounge comfortable and cozy with plenty of games provided too, and theres a tv in every room! The farm pathway up to the house does have a lot of potholes unfortunately and due to the rain it did get very muddy and slippy too. I’ve pointed this out to Sykes who will hopefully recommend this gets fixed as soon as possible. Overall we still had a lovely break…I recommend visiting the pancake house in Pateley Bridge, a short walk away.

    I'm sorry the state of the farm track affected your stay and that you had such bad weather. We have had some stone delivered now to fill the worst potholes, but really need things to dry up before we can do any lasting repair work. The track is also a bridleway (and only the last half is owned by me) so we are limited on the improvements we are able to make; NYCC insist it should be a gravel track which unfortunately is prone to damage in very bad rainfall. The property is quite remote, which makes it a wonderful rural retreat, but country life can be unpredictable as well as a bit of an adventure. Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely new year 2024 break here , the whole family really enjoyed it , Mosscarr Barn is an amazing house and everything has been thought of !"

    The only drawback is the long drive way up to it , which has several pot holes and quite humpy and bumpy , but we got used to it and slowly and carefully mastered it ! The house makes up for it though and you can totally relax here and enjoy the lovely setting, We would definitely come back again .

  • "The property was absolutely stunning, very clean, and the facilities were amazing."

    The owners had literally thought of everything. The property has been done out to such a high spec, there wasn’t anything that hadn’t been thought about in terms of making guests stays really enjoyable. The wine fridge was amazing ;-) The Christmas hamper, and doggy hamper were lovely extra touches too, as were all the decorations. We loved how organised the owner was in terms of the details sent prior to going. We also personally loved how organised it was to recycle and compost rather than just throwing everything in one bin. The only one thing I would change would be to have a better vacuum cleaner than the Dyson for vacuuming. We like to leave a property clean and it was difficult to sweep the dog hair up effectively as the vacuum didn’t suction well. We would like to thank Mary for allowing us to stay at her property and enjoy an amazing Christmas.

  • "A truly wonderful property - thoughtfully designed and very well equipped!"

    We loved it! Having an en suite for each double room was fantastic. We travelled with a young baby and the owner was very accommodating with facilities for her. The Christmassy touches were great; it felt very festive for our annual Christmas getaway! Thank you. The barn is a short distance away from the nearest pub and local shop. There are lots of lovely towns within a short drive.

  • "What a fantastic property!"

    It was absolutely immaculate with all the modern features any family could want or need. There is a luxurious feel throughout and an abundance of space to easily accommodate 6-8 people. It is within a 30 minute drive of most of the major tourist areas and the walk into the nearest village Pately Bridge was flat and easy. The owner had left a lovely welcome pack and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree for our early December stay, which was really appreciated. The walks nearby are beautiful and we took some of the more adventurous routes which resulted in some spectacular snowy photograph's. There is one important thing to note, the lane up to the barn is littered with potholes and adds a good 5-10 mins to each journey, so does requires patience. The lane leads to other farms so we assumed it was not just the owners responsibility and with us all being in the festive spirit from the local Christmas markets, it didn't bother us too much. There is a small incline up to the barn which did prove very challenging in the winter weather (it has snowed the night before we arrived), so is another factor to consider if you are traveling to the Barn in poor weather. Overall though a brilliant holiday and we can't recommend Mosscarr Barn enough!

  • "Such a beautiful well equipped property."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The track leading up to the propertu was a challenge in the snow but aside from a few times having to get out and push we navigated it. The price you pay for such stunning views though. No complaints at all. Loved it

  • "Barn & facilities are fantastic!"

    Comfy, high standard, peaceful & plenty of room. One downside was the heating, just could not get bedrooms, bathrooms & kitchen warm enough. Lounge warm if log burner lit. Second concern was the track from road to property. It needs attention & improving. Large potholes, central strip of track a major risk for normal/low cars, bushes at sides need trimming back as scratched the side of car.

  • "A beautiful barn conversion that feels isolated but is within a few minutes of Pately Bridge."

    It is immaculately clean, well presented, and provides everything you could possibly need, and a lot more besides. I have never seen such a well-stocked welcome basket!

  • "A lot of money has been spent on this beautiful barn renovation, with quality fixtures and fittings throughout."

    The inventory is huge, with every possible item included. The location within the valley is excellent for walkers like ourselves, and there are some good pubs and eating places not too far away, however transport is essential for this property. It should be noted that the access track to the barn is a gravelled farm track, and care needs to be taken whilst driving along it.

  • "A relaxing, rejuvenating, retreat – exactly as described  From the short drive through fields of rabbits, sheep, and cows - you can start to feel how the location reinvigorates your mind and spirit."

    Then when you walk through the door and notice that everything has been considered – the welcome pack of goodies, every utensil you could possibly need in the kitchen, mints on the pillows and the little touches in the bathrooms – you just know this is the perfect holiday home. This luxury retreat easily accommodated four adults, two small children and a dog. The shared living space felt roomy and yet everyone could disappear to their own comfortable space when needed. There were wonderful family friendly dog walks – with Pateley Bridge within easy reach (if you can distract yourself away from the stunning views). Ahead of our journey, the inventory and A to Z guide was well timed. Knowing there were games and jigsaws saved us packing some – and to see original monopoly brought back some wonderful childhood memories. The owner has truly considered everything. We are already booking our next summer adventure at Mosscarr Barn.

  • "Highly recommend!"

    True 5 star property. Absolutely superb luxurious barn conversion in tranquil rural location, with everything you could wish for. Nicely decorated and well thought out with lots of space for everyone, books, games, dvd’s, jigsaws, netflix and even spare wellies! 15 min walk to closest pub (Bridge Inn) and pleasant 30 min walk into centre of Pateley Bridge for shops, pubs, butcher, baker, ice cream etc.The barn was spotless and well equipped with lots of lovely touches to make you feel welcome. Generous welcome hamper, chocolates on beds, toiletries, guest welcome booklet with maps for local walks and information on shops, food and activities. Recommend the circular walk into Pateley Bridge and back. Good pub food and nice atmosphere at the Crown Inn. Pancake House served up super yummy food and ice cream. If you fancy something a bit more upmarket Olleys Italian Restaurant was fab. The barn is at the end of a long farm track but it is gravel and flat and as long as you drive slowly (10pm) it is absolutely fine. It’s a nice walk along the path to the pub and town.

    We enjoyed Yorkshire even in the frequently wet weather and didn't manage in one week to make the most of all that Mosscarr Barn offered us! It is definitely somewhere to which we'd be very happy to return!

  • "The property is a barn-conversion which has been undertaken to a very high standard."

    Immaculate upon arrival! There was room for all of us to sit, eat and be - comfortably. The kitchen is excellent - spacious, bright and very well equipped. Had the weather been more on our side we would have made use of the outdoor seating and bbq too! We were 6 adults plus one dog, so one twin room was not used - however this would have been perfect for 2 children. Everything worked, wifi signal strong, excellent water pressure. Directions and communication with owner excellent. Wonderful attentions to detail - including bags, toy and towels for dog. Loved the "rabbit bank" along the drive plus the grouse, merlins etc.. Pateley Bridge itself friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

    The weather wasn't very kind to us but the property more than made up for it. We all felt so relaxed and comfortable. The views are stunning and the specification of the barn is the best holiday rental we have stayed in. It was lovely and clean, tidy and well kept. There are so many extras at your disposal, the owners have thought of everything. The A-Z list is really helpful and the kitchen had every high end appliance you could need, we would definitely return again. Outside and the location of the property is in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales with all the charm associated with that. Thank you for a lovely week.

  • "Everything about the barn was brilliant and we had a great stay."

    The only point I would make is that the boiling water tap can be dangerous for young children, specially those who are used to operating taps by themselves. Maybe a clear warning sign by the tap would reduce the risk.

  • "I really don’t know where to start ."

    We stayed with our friends so 3 couples & 2 dogs . We did ask if we could bring 3 dogs which the owner did say yes . One of our friends decided to leave their dog at home . We all had a beautiful bedroom & ensuite bathroom & a window with a view . I always take extra things like salt & pepper , foil, bin liners just little things that over the years hasn’t been in accommodation we’ve stayed in. I didn’t need to do this here if I had known they had everything & I mean everything !!! Just take yourselves , food , drink ect . The only thing I would say is the lane ( farm track ) is like a field so no good for sports cars . We was ok with our apart from one car but we didn’t take that car out again until it was home time but just be aware . Maybe one more thing would be to have some nice outdoor furniture for summer months . Just to make it very luxurious but again we didn’t need it the time of year we stayed . We was also lucky enough to meet the owner Mary & she was so lovely & it was nice to hear her story of the Barn renovation & that she was brought up there

The property

Tucked away on a farm near the quaint village of Pateley Bridge in North Yorkshire is Mosscarr Barn.

This luxurious, dog-friendly, stone-fronted barn conversion benefits from fabulous, far-reaching views across the countryside and a characterful interior where charming original features like exposed beams and a-frames have been thoughtfully blended with top of the range, contemporary appliances contributing to a truly memorable stay for a group of eight or families looking to experience the tranquillity of the countryside.

Cross the threshold, a welcoming living/dining room greets you, unwind on the plush sofas in front of the soothing crackle of the woodburning stove while the designated chef of the group whips up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen.

Gather the family around the table to tuck in and reminisce of the memories you have created so far before stepping outside to savour the last of the sun with a glass of wine in hand on the private patio.

When sleep calls, head inside to wash off the day in the sleek bathroom ready for a refreshing sleep in one of four bedrooms; there is a super-king-size, a double and a ground-floor double all with en-suite shower rooms and TVs and a twin.

If you can tear yourself away from this breath-taking property, head into the heart of Pateley Bridge to stock up on essentials at local stores or delight in an evening away from the kitchen at The Crown or The Royal Oak or you can enjoy some live music on Saturday afternoons (April to September) at the Bridge Inn at the end of the track..
