  • "Only one word to say on the Barn " Stunning "."

    Amazing property & owners too. Everything you needed for a comfortable stay with the local wildlife at your doorstep each day. Perfect location only a short walk down into the village where we enjoyed many cafes, some hidden down little alley ways and local shops too.The waffle & Pancake shop was delicious. The River Nidd walk was a very enjoyable walk from the village following the river which starts behind Wildings cafe and runs down to an open lake. We have already recommended the Barn to friends and family and would definitely return again at some point in the future. Thank you for letting us share and enjoy your beautiful property & hospitality x

    The surrounding scenery was beautiful and was ever changing with the weather. The wildlife brought many hours of entertainment as we sat and watched ducks playing on the pond, and hens and pheasants observing us through the patio door. We needed a relaxing and peaceful break and this holiday home did not fail to deliver. We would highly recommend this property.

    We were impressed with the cleanliness, space, comfort and overall quality standard. A warm welcome from the hosts and a few local goodies was well received. The spiral staircase is easy to navigate and adds a quirky feel to the place. Very comfy bed and nice hot shower, great for tired muscles as the area is rather hilly! This cottage is extremely well equipped and maintained. We were blessed with perfect weather and sitting out on the patio watching the ducks/ wildlife was a treat. We enjoyed visiting local towns, including Pately bridge, Skipton and Settle and there are lovely walks locally or further afield. Knaresborough, Ripley castle and Fountains abbey are definitely worth a visit. We have stayed in many cottages and would rate this very highly and absolutely worth a return visit!
