Peaceful and picturesque

Ample room for all, very comfortable and clean. The veiws were stunning, and every sunset and sunrise brought different colours over the valley. Quiet with some super walks right from the doorstep.
A must visit again type of place. Maybe a little too far away from the village center for some, about a 10 min drive, but suited us down to the ground.

The location is very scenic and away from it all. The property is well equipped and a comfortable base to tour around the Dales and Moors.

White Christmas in Yorkshire
Left on 02/11/2010 for a stay in December 2009 | Andy
We were fortunate that there was a heavy snowfall just before we arrived which added to the beauty of the scenery- we were worried that we would not be able to get up the hill, but the owners gave us the number of a farmer who could help us up the hill with his tractor if needed, and we were very a pleased to arrive to a warm kitchen with a chritmas tree and home made mince pies to welocme us. The home was well equipped and big enough for our family of 5, and remote enough for us to get away from it all. There were plenty of walks from the farm even in the snow and ice A great location to get away for winter; we would like to return in the summer time and sit out on the bench in the evenings on our next visit

Real get-away-from-it-all location. A great part of the world, with lots to see and do. Accommodation was very spacious, extremely well-appointed with a lovely range of oak furniture throughout. Comfortable bed, and relaxing leather recliners in the lounge. House was a bit cold at times, and would have benefitted from a woodburner rather than electric fire. Owners very friendly, and happily posted back some items we mistakenly left behind.

tranquil and peaceful barn over looking leighton reservoir
Left on 12/03/2009 for a stay in March 2009 | doktorA
very nice owners, who live to one side of the barn, left us scones and milk and eggs, a loaf of home baked bread on our arrival. Very comfortable barn, extremely quiet, though is a good way from civilisation - masham - which was perfect for us, but may be too isolated for others. March in Yorkshire is as you might expect, chilly, changable, rainy at times, even some snow for a short time. York is not far and worth a visit, Harrogate is lovely, and we spent a delightful time in a country hotel outside Whitby - do go to the Magpie fish restaurant - lovely food and great atmosphere. We really enjoyed our time in North Yorkshire, though we did visit friends making it even more special.
