  • "This lovely home provided the perfect base for our families’ get-together."

    Whilst the decor is quite dated, it has been well maintained and was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The welcome pack left for us was appreciated. Plenty of space with generously proportioned rooms and toasty warm. The location was great for access to country walks and local amenities and the adequate parking/outdoor space was a bonus. Plenty of seating for a big group to eat together, however the lack of cutlery meant we had to share table knives. Be sure to visit the Dog and Gun and Glusburn park during your stay. Both within walking distance.

  • "On the Whole a lovely house ,however there were some things that are expected when paying that amount of money ,things that wouldn't cost a lot of money but will make a world of difference to guests ."

    Upstairs (and nowhere in the house ) a full length mirror was nowhere to be found surely this is basic ,also a lock on the family bathroom is really a basic . The kitchen..well a really lovely kitchen just let down by things people expect these days ,,the cutlery looks like it was bought it Poundland shop very poor quality ,that goes for all the other utensils ,also a coffee machine would be a lovely addition (none of us drink instant coffee ,but luckily I took my Nespresso ) A high chair as well, in a house of that size please, when you know a baby is coming . The other thing that would be helpful is some information or leaflets on where to go in the local area ,and the walks ,there is a lovely park just a couple of minutes away but we only found it by chance ! There is usually a book around with all this info in. I don't want to sound as if we are complainers because we all had a really lovely time it is just little touches ,the house itself was perfect for us all to spread out if we wanted to ,and easy to get to many interesting places ,we would return ..

  • "Overall we enjoyed our stay at Ryecroft Barn."

    We made good use of the Conservatory which was bathed in light and although the American style fridge freezer was not working, the replacement fridge freezer in the utility room was adequate for our use. All the bedrooms were clean and comfortable, and the 2 family rooms were very spacious. The airing cupboard was an added bonus for drying towels. There were some areas which I feel could be improved. There are 3 steep steps outside leading to the main door, and 2 steps to the conservatory door. I feel a handrail would be useful for less able guests. My arthritic father really struggled with these and felt that a handrail would have helped him immensely. In the kitchen the only kitchen knives provided were the size of pen knives. Very small, perhaps camping knives? Almost impossible to cut bread with. A decent set of knives would have been appreciated. The shower door in the main bathroom opens inwards which makes it awkward to get in and out. Only by pressing yourself up against the back wall can you edge yourself in. Perhaps the door could be rehung so it opens outwards? And finally the sofa in the conservatory, whilst comfortable, is flaking quite badly. I noticed brown specks around the base and when I lifted the throw I saw that the seat area was flaking badly. I feel that this is a lovely property but with a few adjustments it could be so much more.

  • "The cottage in general was quite good."

    The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, the beds very comfortable. However, downstairs was less than expected. The kitchen although quite large, with dishwasher, and plenty of cupboard space, the Fridge/freezer had a fault which should have been put right before we arrived at the property. Although there was a smaller fridge/freezer in the utility room. The cooker was less than adequate for a family of eight, with just two induction hobs, and a grill plate. There was a gas hob as well, but this was not working. The conservatory was very hot, although there was air conditioning, this also did not work. The furniture looked like it had been bought in a second hand furniture shop, or charity shop. the carpets in the conservatory were curled up at the edges, and some if not all of us often tripped over these. The windows in the conservatory had not been cleaned in a long while with moss growing on the roof windows. Cobwebs covered most of the outside of the conservatory, I understand being in the country this could be a problem, but they hadn't been cleaned for a while. The lounge/ TV room was quite comfortable although it had a dank damp smell. Sweets broken biscuits and other unknown objects were found down the sides and underneath the cushions. On the whole it is a lovely cottage, and very well situated. With a little TLC it could be so much better.
