Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Great property! Very clean & modern. We all loved it. The owners are very helpful & great people! Hot tub a great addition! Nov 2012.
  2. In 25 years of "cottaging" this was THE BEST cottage that we’ve stayed in. Everything was immaculate and to very highest of standards. The welcome pack was a great surprise and very welcome, and as for the hot tub, well, what can we say - WOW WOW WOW. Would highly recommend this cottage to families. June 2012.
  3. Excellent 5 star luxury cosy barn, with modern facilities. Great location for walking, cycling, sightseeing. May 2012.
  4. Fab place to stay, furnished and equipped to the highest standard. Hot tub was an added touch of luxury. Received a really lovely welcome package with everything we needed to get started. Only drawbacks were the cottage is in quite an isolated position and could not get mobile phone signal. Cottage may benefit from a coin phone. Otherwise, the perfect holiday in the perfect cottage! March 2012.
  5. We had a long weekend at the barn for an early christmas break. We found the barn absolutely gorgeous and could not fault a thing, it has been finished to a very very high standard. The hot tub in the courtyard is a brilliant extra, even if it’s cold it worth getting into your costume for, you will be glad you did. We enjoyed a glass of champagne in the hot tub and even had a little snow. Absolutely gorgeous place, would recommend to anyone. Dec 2011.
  6. Excellent accommodation and absolute luxury, cant fault anything. Would definetly recommend. Many Thanks. Dec 2011.
  7. The property has only recently been converted, and the fit & finish is excellent. Well done to the builders who did the job, and well done to the owners for having the foresight to spend a sensible amount of money on the conversion. Oct 2011.
  8. What a fantastic barn. The welcome pack was well thought out and was totally appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at The Old Barn and would recommend it to everyone. Oct 2011.
  9. The Old Barn has been furnished and maintained to an excellent standard. The owners have been very thoughtful in providing all you would need and the welcome pack was excellent. The hot tub is a fantastic bonus, very private, not overlooking and a great view of the stars at night! Oct 2011.
  10. The Old Barn was beautiful, quiet, & clean. Plenty of places to visit within a 30 min radias. Great Holiday. Oct 2011.
  11. This is a delightful property finished to a very high standard, which we couldn’t fault. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and the welcome hamper was a lovely surprise. We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage. Sept 2011.
  12. Lovely, lovely cottage. Sept 2011.
  13. A superb cottage, took a while to find our way around, a good sat nav helped! Fountains Abbey, Brimham Rocks, Ripon town and Ripon Cathedral all well worth visiting. Ripon has the luxury of Morrisons, Sainsburys and Booths supermarkets. Do visit Ripon for the 9pm ceremony of the horn blower in the market square, a ceremony unbroken for 1125 years. June 2011.
  14. The best property we have stayed in. Amazing thought has gone into every aspect of it and it is thoroughly kitted out with good taste and thoughtfulness. the ’welcome’ gifts are well chosen and real quality. The owners are very helpful. May 2011.
  15. Best cottage we have stayed,you couldnt fault anything and the hot tub was amazing. May 2011.
  16. A lovely cottage done to a very high standard. Had great weather, the courtyard is a sun trap and great to laze about in the hot-tub. Will definitely be going back to this cottage again. April 2011.
  17. The Old Barn was a great place for our holiday. The very high standard of everything in the cottage was especially appreciated - the hot-tub was exceptional too - well done to the owners - we want to come again!! Many thanks. March 2011.
  18. A most wonderful property (perfect). Everything you could wish for and more. The only downside I would say maybe the location as it is down twisting narrow roads. But saying that it was so peaceful and tranquil with superb views. March 2011.
  19. A lovely property, fitted out to a very high standard, with lots of welcoming touches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. March 2011.
  20. Excellent quality accommodation, quiet and well presented. Pubs were just that bit too far away for us. March 2011.
