This 16th Century, stone-built barn conversion which is located on a working farm in the Yorkshire Dales village of Ravensworth sleeps seven people in three bedrooms.

Larklands is a superb 16th Century, stone-built barn conversion on a working cattle farm one mile from the pretty village of Ravensworth on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage is all on the ground floor and has three bedrooms (one twin, one double and one family room with a double and a single day bed and ensuite facilities) and a family bathroom making it possible to sleep up to seven people. The cottage also has a large and spacious fitted kitchen with a dining area and a stone arch leading to the sitting room with an electric stove, exposed roof beams and patio doors to the outside courtyard which contains garden furniture. There is also off road parking available for three cars. Larklands is a beautifully renovated holiday cottage in a delightful part of North Yorkshire making this a superb location for a relaxing family holiday.


Everything about the holiday was wonderful and made so by Larklands. The owners were the most welcoming of hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Our 18month old grandson had a whale of a time with all the animals. The standard of the property was extremely high and in our opinion could not be improved on in any way. We will certainly recommend this property to our friends and family and will not hesitate to return.

Fabulous accommodation ("The Barn"), located near to Richmond in the North Yorkshire Dales, with superb amenities. Angela & Jack, the owners, are the best hosts any guest could wish for. Friendly and welcoming nothing was too much trouble for these hosts who live nearby on this working farm. Our party of five, including our eighteen month old grandson, had a fantastic time in this picturesque rural setting near to the small village of Ravensworth. Used as a base to tour Durham, East and South Yorkshire, Larklands was a delight to return to after a busy day out. The numerous animals on the farm both captivated and fascinated our grandson Rory and to have such closeness with the farm animals during our seven day stay was truly memorable. If you are looking for a holiday cottage in the North Yorkshire area, based upon our experience, Larklands would be very hard to beat. Across the courtyard to our accommodation ("The Barn"), is equally high quality accommodation (which we viewed) known as "The Stables". At some point we hope to return to this area for another holiday and would not hesitate to stay in either of these excellent cottages. Thank you Angela and Jack for helping to make our stay so enjoyable.

This was a lovely location on a working farm. The cockerels got you up early enough to enjoy the day. The owner was lovely and kind and helpful. The standard of fixtures, fittings and furnishings were superb. We would definitely recommend it. As a base to Richmond and surrounding area it is great.

My wife and I were up in N Yorkshire for a Wedding, so a week up in the Dales was a pleasant distraction and that of our Grand Daughter, who loved the farm animals . We have stayed in many cottages up and down the Country. This let is on top of the pile. In antique terms they say 'quality sells'. This cottage had rooms and fittings of the highest quality. Beautifully planned. It was finished to such a high standard that is not normally found in holiday lets. The owners, Angela and Jack were very welcoming, even down to supplying fresh eggs. If I had to be picky and this is no reflection on our fabulous stay, I would say a curtain over the entrance and hall area would give that extra bit of privacy, especially at night when one is dashing from the bedroom to the bathroom.

We stayed at Larklands from the 12th February to the 15th 2016 with another couple there 3 children
