  • "A short mini break that was perfect in every way."

    The hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful. The Barn was immaculate, comfortable and home from home. In a beautiful setting looking over the Yorkshire Dales surrounded by the chickens, ducks and other wildlife it was so relaxing sitting next to the small pond whilst enjoying a glass of wine. The welcome pack and fresh eggs was an absolute treat and most welcoming. Every small detail had been thought through and the Barn felt incredibly COVID safe - thank you. There was a very good phone and wifi signal for anyone who may be wondering about this - thankfully I left work at home. Yes I would recommend to friends and family and would definitely book again.

    One of the best cottage holidays we have ever experienced. The quality and finishing touches in The Barn are top notch. Fantastic views and a feeling of space and quietness.
