pet friendly property appraisal
My husband and I stayed at the Dairy cottage number 3 in Barforth, with our son and daughter in law there for 2 nights. On arrival we discovered the place had been left in the 1950's, apart from the fridge and the kettle; there were no complimentary items. We had one toilet roll, already started for technically 4 of us, somebody else's cleaning pad to wash up with, towels that looked like they were years and years old, and there were broken bits of clothes pegs littered in amongst the gravel outside, which for a pet friendly place was not acceptable. The grass had been rough cut once a mower width leaving the sides and edges long and straggly, and a pond had been quickly covered over with rough ended uneven sized planks of wood, which hurt and scratched when walked against. My puppy lost a toy under one of the settees; the mess underneath was disgusting, and the fly epidemic didn't help the whole situation. Broken light fittings off the fence tops were in the gravel too, and there was no privacy from the adjoining place, as the fence was only 3 foot high if that. The only thing going for the place was the space to move in.

Lovely stay
We had our 2nd anniversary here,it was absolutely beautiful! Lovely walks,hot tub was great once we worked out how to heat it properly,the only downside was there is no mattress or pillow protection!!! And a badly stained quilt!! Not nice knowing how many people sleep in this bed!!

pleasant stay
Just back from our week stay. Disappointed first view of the outside nothing like the picture just a hanging basket with 2 artificial flowers in. The cottage is roomy and nice and clean. Very large comfy bed. Think it would benefit from 2 chairs instead of the small settee which was cramped and not very comfy. We were not left a welcome pack which has always been the case in all the other properties we have stayed in. The surrounding areas are lovely with lots to do and see.
