Set in the gorgeous Dales countryside, two miles from Settle on the Malham road, this outstanding detached barn conversion offers beautiful accommodation in breathtaking scenery.

Set amidst its own grounds, Bookilber Barn is furnished to a very high standard, seamlessly blending modern and period décor. With under-floor heating and state-of-the-art lighting systems, this property is a great location for either a family or group of friends to explore the region. Sleeping up to twelve people in total, and with a hot-tub on site, five en suite bedrooms, and movement activated floor lights en route to the master bedroom, this really is first class accommodation. This cottage featured in the Sunday Times Top 100 Cool Cottages list.


What an amazing place. I booked the barn for my bestfriends hen party. The barn did not disappoint. It was fabulous inside. All the detail make is all that more amazing. On entering the barn we were hit by the smell of scented candles, a bottle of sparkiling wine and a bowl of fruit. Its the little things that count. The place is stunning. The road to access the barn is a bit bumpy but just drive slowly and I guarantee the barn is worth it.

The Barn was well furnished and very comfortable, the hot tub was an added bonus. My whole family thoroughly enjoyed their stay. It was a lovely setting and would like to go back.

What a place Bookilber Barn is! From the moment you pull into the drive to the minute you close the gate behind you as you leave you feel & see the level of work that has gone into making it something special. When we first started down the long bumpy road I have to admit that I wasn?t expecting much & poor car (a mini) was less than impressed but we stuck with it and had such a wonderful weekend. It's the little touches that matter , when we arrived we opened the door and scented candles filled the air, there was a bottle of fizz on the counter and fresh flowers throughout. Throughout this house there is ample room for all (12 of us) and each corner is finished to such high standards. The grounds are beautiful and the views are stunning, we spent plenty of hours in the hot tub watching the sunset. It was the perfect retreat with something for all. Thank you for having us and we look forward to coming back.

Where do I start? My partner, daughter and I were first of our group to arrive and to say we were gobsmacked would be an understatement! Absolutely perfect in every way and set in the beautiful countryside. The 12 of us made good use of the barbecue and hot tub area during our weekend stay and the barn it's self was far spacious enough for us all. The bedrooms were immaculate and lounge space was beautiful. A cot was supplied for our daughter and we loved the little touches... Teddies on the bed, candles lit and sparkling ros? on our arrival and well stocked shelves of family games and books. I particularly enjoyed looking through the history of the barn and how it was rebuilt in 1996. The owners should be so proud! Amazing! Wish we could stay every weekend!

We were part of a group of adult Anglo / American couples that spent a week at the Bookilber Barn. The property is accessed by a two mile bumpy, gravel lane through open fields with not another property in sight. This caused us to question if we were on the right route even though the directions warned us about the access lane. Then all of a sudden this wonderful stone barn appears. It looks nice from the outside. When you step inside you find that you have entered into the world of an imaginative interior designer. The Bookilber Barn is a first class set up. Everything is top drawer. One fact you need to be aware of is that only four of the six bedrooms are suitable for adult couples. This fact was made clear on the owner's web-site but it was not clear on the Sykes Cottages web-site at the time of our booking.
