Peaceful and relaxing with stunning scenery
Lovely cosy clean accommodation with plenty of space. Spectacular views to the front and rear of the property. The wood fired hot tub took about 4 to 5hrs to warm up from it being totally cold to getting to the acquired temperature we wanted - we expected this and it therefore wasn't a problem, infact it was still warm enough the following morning to enjoy. There was plenty of wood provided for it but if there hadn't have been, a quick call to the owner would have rectified it. No problem with hot water in the accommodation and no problem with flies as previously mentioned in other reviews. The accommodation had everything you would need for a break. The owners were friendly and were on hand if required. The farm is huge with lots of livestock. The accommodation has an enclosed rear garden which was secure for our dog to wander in and out. Beautiful walks are available from the doorstep. There was even an opportunity for our daughter to help feed the baby lambs/goats. We would definitely visit again.

A Good Stay Overall!
We visited for a week with our little boy - the animals opposite the cottage were a big hit! Goats, llamas, horses and cows can all be seen from the cottage. The hot tub is great and once warmed as long as it is kept on top of and used regularly it doesn?t take long to heat back up. There were a few issues - we would agree that there were quite a few flies in the property and also struggled with the hot water but the booster did solve this problem. It would have been nice to have a bit more information in the cottage - local attractions, walks and places to eat etc this would have saved us time researching. We would recommend the black Horse at Ingleton for an Italian - we visited twice and found the food great at a reasonable price! Overall really enjoyed our stay and the price was very reasonable for what we got and the location! Thanks for having us!

I would never visit this cottage again as it was crawling with bugs and the hot tub took ages to heat up and didn?t have enough wood, didn?t have no hot water even though we pressed the boost button so disappointed with the stay came home early as we couldn?t stay any longer as it was so bad! Also dog roaming about which you could tell they was not nice at all! I would not recommend this to anyone at all! I am hoping to get some compensation as it ruined my family holiday!

Lovely countryside spot for a wedding stay
We stayed in this cottage for a local wedding. The wedding was in the main farmhouse house and it was a delight in all ways! It was a picture perfect marquee wedding spilling out onto the beautiful lawn of the farmhouse for a champagne reception. There was attention to the finest detail and everything looked perfect. The cottage itself was also a quaint countryside delight. There are lovely wooden finishings in the kitchen with lots of personal touches. The main bed was extremely comfy and made for the perfect night sleep in the silence of the countryside. The cottage is spacious and perfect for small groups. The wood fired hot tub outside is a perfect way to spend the evening while watching the horses in the neighbouring field. A lovely tranquil countryside experience!

Wedding cottage stay
Recently stayed in this cottage for a beautiful wedding in the stunning grounds of barforth hall. The drive down to the cottage puts you in the holiday mood, through lovely English countryside. The cottage itself was quaint and cosy and perfect for a relaxing stay away from the city. Fully equipped with amenities in the cottage and it was lovely and clean. Would love to stay again!
