Briliant accommodation and location
We were a large mixed group (aged 4 months to 60 years old) and an 18 month old Yorkshire Terrier called Tobie. We all found Swallow Barn to be an amazing place to stay. The ground floor has the 'wow' factor with the huge sitting area and the view up the stairs to the galleried landing. The whole place was spotless and the facilities are excellent. The sofas are so comfy and there is plenty of seating. The beds are also great and we all had restful sleep (even the baby!)The levels of equipment provided really are first class.
There was a problem with the gas when we arrived that wasn't the fault of the owners but they bought us take away pizza as we couldn't cook. A lack of water for a short period the next day resulted in Sue bringing round two bottles of champagne and chocolates. This was very much appreciated and shows how much they value their customers.
The farm is in a wonderful position on a hillside and so close to some great places to visit. We went to Skipton, Bolton Abbey, Malham Cove, Fountains Abbey, Clitheroe, Ilkley and wished we had more time in this lovely part of Yorkshire. Would love to stay again and we enjoyed meeting Leonard, the farm dog.
We loved the open plan ground floor at Swallow Barn, which was so spacious. The design of the house was aesthetically pleasing with the central staircase and galleried landing. With a lot of people staying it was so good to have several en suite rooms and such a huge bathroom. We felt that the conversion of the property had been carried out with care and thought; the woodwork and fittings were beautifully constructed. All this is to say nothing of the stunning views across the valley and the hills beyond. We loved this place!
Just returned home from a perfect weekend away at Swallow Barn.
We were attending a family wedding in nearby Skipton so decided to book here instead of a hotel. There were 9 adults staying here and we cannot speak highly enough of the place.
It was spotless on arrival and Sue the owner popped in to welcome us but then left us to our own devices all weekend, despite only living next door.
The cottage itself is amazing, the photos really don't do it justice and the under floor heating just topped it off.
The town of Silsden is a good half an hour walk away. It's all downhill so would recommend getting a taxi back home for the return journey.
We ventured into Silsden on the Saturday afternoon and spent the day in the Robin Hood pub which was also a friendly and welcoming place.
Five stars from us and we are already planning on going back next summer. Just perfect.
We enjoyed the warm comfortable and spacious accommodation, the view and the friendliness of the owners next door.
Beautiful Cottage in Perfect Location
It was my husband's 50th birthday and we were looking for somewhere to stay with a group of 8 friends (5 couples). There are plenty of houses / cottages for 10+ people, but not all with the correct number of bedrooms that would allow 5 couples to be able to stay together. Swallow Barn has 5 double or twin bedrooms, 3 are en suite, so a perfect set up for our group.
The pictures don't do the place justice. The house is huge, open plan downstairs, but still cosy and comfortable. There are plenty of seats for everyone and the kitchen has everything you could need. Plenty of crockery, cutlery and cups and glasses. There is a beautiful cooker and huge fridge to store enough food and drinks for 10 people.
Everything in the cottage is finished beautifully, with a lovely stone floor downstairs and the under floor heating makes it very warm.
The cottage is located in a farm, and although it is joined to the owners house, there were no intrusions, but the owner was around to show us what we needed to know in the cottage and to answer any questions if we had any.
There is plenty to do in the surrounding area and if we find the need to travel with a large group again, I would definitely go back.
