This is a top-class property providing a high level of comfort throughout, with the rooms all very tastefully furnished - you really couldn't ask for any more. Stainforth is an excellent base for getting out and about in the Dales, in fact there are plenty of nice walks from the doorstep. We had a great holiday here and can wholeheartedly recommend it.
A good choice for a family

We really enjoyed our stay here. There was plenty of room for a family of 5, it was very clean, well equipt and the bedding was comfortable. Our kids loved playing on the stepping stones over the beck and we loved how close we were to some lovely walks and views. Catrigg Force was a very nearby walk a lovely surprise and I recommend you venture there. We loved the walk around Malham Cove also. This place is very well located and very peaceful.

Luxurious conversion of barn conversion with mod cons
Left on 10/27/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Tarquinius
We had a great week at stepping stones barn.
The old building has been converted in a very modern style internally, to a very high standard. But it still manages to retain some of the traditional cottage charm.
The kitchen is equipped to a high standard, and the bathroom is of very high quality - an excellent shower and bath.
The location is peaceful - in a pretty small village, with an good honest local pub that serves good honest pub food. Another positive is that its possible to walk to nearby waterfalls within half an hour or so from the cottage, and even to walk to Pen-y-Ghent from the accommodation.
Our two kids loved it too (aged 8 and 5) - we couldn't really have asked for any more! This accommodation is not cheap, but is certainly worth it - with Stepping Stones Barn you certainly get what you pay for.
Everything we could possibly have wanted!

It is a lovely cottage in a peaceful village but so close to Settle for shops and restaurants. The cottage is so well equipped and has some lovely touches such as the heated bathroom floor, comfy sofas and wifi.
