This house was great. Very well equipped and decorated throughout. It is in a good position to visit many attractions of North Yorkshire. Lovely paths to follow around the village. Games and pool room for children ideal. Easy commute to Skipton, which we love. There is noise from the road, but it actually not too bad.

Probably one of the prettiest barns we have stayed in. Beautifully appointed. Everything you could possibly need As it is just off a lay-by there is noise but the owners do not hide this fact - just be aware of it, but it certainly will not spoil your stay The walks are out of this world. If you love walking you will be in heaven Hot water runs outRead more quickly, but this is probably because we take longer showers than we should An outstanding property and highly recommend Hide

We were thoroughly impressed by the house, very high standard, much bigger than we thought from the photos! Check in was smooth and we had a lovely welcome package waiting for us. It was perfect for our group of 6 adults, 3 babies, a toddler and 2 dogs. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

The barn was beautiful and spacious. The kitchen was very well stocked with cutlery and crockery. The beds were also very cosy and comfortable. However, due to the inability to heat the living room and bedrooms to keep us comfortably warm throughout the day and evening we had to leave a day early.

A lovely, spacious barn, nicely decorated and very clean. Good location for local areas and a nice pub a 20-25 minute walk away. The barn has everything youd need and comfortably fills 8 people I would say (we were a party of 6 and it was very comfortable). The only downside is the noise from the busy main road adjacent to the property which woke uRead mores up earlier than we wouldve liked most mornings as the busy traffic built up. Hide

This was a very lovely barn conversion, exceptionally well equipped. Ideal for visiting the Yorkshire dales. We were all blown away when first entering the property at the standard of furnishing and space available. More than enough room for 8 people staying, even there was only 6 of us but 3 different generations.

Lovely property, clean, warm, great location for visiting places like Skipton and Harrogate. Kitchen well stocked. Lovely toilets and bathrooms. The only negative for me was the lack of a secure area / garden for the dogs. Probably my fault for not reading the reviews properly. We would definitely go back though. Thanks

Wonderful cottage with excellent modern facilities and perfect location for our family of 7 adults and 2 dogs to visit sights in the Dales. Despite some other comments, we didn't find the noise from main road any problem. Worth noting that WiFi speed is low (<10Mbps) so not suited to working calls/multiple devices at once, but that's not a complainRead moret, just for awareness as out of owner's control. Owners very helpful with advice on the heating. Hide
