We stayed here for the 2016 Christmas period. The weather was blustery and the cottage was situatiated on the outer perimeter of Grantley where it was quite exposed. Word of advice- arrive before it gets dark. We arrived at the farm gate in pitch dark without a torch in stormy rain and found great difficulty in locating the key safe. I needed to ring the owner twice as we drove up the track. When we eventually opened the door the cottage felt cold and uninviting but after switching everything on we were able to appreciate the full quality of the accommodation. The owners had left us a beautifully decorated Christmas Tree in the dining kitchen which was a lovely festive gesture. Sallys Barn had everything we required for our Christmas break. It was spotlessly clean, very well equipped with mod cons, and spaciously laid out so that our party of six never felt on top of one another. The two children loved their room with the mezzanine floor and took it in turns to sleep on the top floor. Our room was at the back and although the heating was on, because it didn't catch the sun, it was quite cool in the mornings. The cottage is very well situated for all the major local attractions and if you like a beautifully clear, star lit walk, the local pub is well worth a visit. The hospitality of the landlord and his wife was second to none and the food was delicious. We were sad to leave at the end of the week although I am pleased that we were ready and packed for 10am departure as the cleaners were sitting in their car outside ready to take over on the minute.

The property layout was fantastic for 2 families with small children. The property was extremely well placed for local outdoor activities for small children (Fountains abbey and Ripley castle both within a few miles). The wood pile was well stocked and the cottage was warm and welcoming. The photos did not do it justice!

We liked everything and had a fantastic family break. We would re-book Sally's Barn in a heartbeat, as the owner was so helpful.
Mr Hindley

A super cottage with comfortable beds and lots of space. Just wonderful. The owners were very friendly.
Mrs Marsh

Sally's Barn is a beautiful barn conversion. The accommodation is spacious, very well laid out and absolutely perfect for a family holiday. There was lots to do and see in the surrounding area - and some very beautiful scenery in the Dales. It was great to come back every day to comfort and warmth and the pleasure of a log burning stove. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
