Don't hesitate, book now!
This place did not disappoint, it is amazing! Group of 10 ladies ranging in ages stayed here for 3 nights. The barn is in perfect condition and very spacious. Took full advantage of the hot tub which is so nice to be in whilst being surrounded by the good old English countryside. Also loved the games room with the pool table, bar, darts board and outside games to play. Went to Clitheroe one of the days for a drink, only ?12 back in a taxi and another day walked about 50 minutes to the nearest pub for a drink. Also prosecco and a home made Victoria sponge on arrival which we all loved. We didn't book here at first because we were put off that the owners house is attached to the barn in case we were too loud for them! However, this was no issue and the owner was very nice and told us not to worry about making noise. Don't hesitate to book here! It really made a weekend we were all looking forward to an absolute amazing one.

Amazing accommodation in a beautiful location
Ox Hey Barn is the perfect property for a family get together or a group of friends. The property is stylishly decorated with high quality furnishings and luxurious bedding. The barn is large enough for everyone to have their own space if needed. The hot tub, a real treat on a cold winter's night, stargazing, and the games room was a big hit with all the family. There are amazing views and walks from the door. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The bubbly and cake were a wonderful welcome. A most enjoyable stay,would definitely return. Thank you Ally.

Stunning Barn conversion!!
I stayed at Ox Hey Barn with my wife and a group of 8 other friends over the Halloween weekend. On arrival on the Friday night we were all stunned at the size and quality of the house and facilities, it has everything you want for a break away and was perfect for our group. The very friendly and generous owners of the Barn welcomed us with a lovely cake and bottle of fizz which was a very nice touch. The Barn has an amazing living space with open plan living, dining and kitchen space, all finished to a very high standard, and one downstairs bedroom with ensuite. Upstairs there is a massive landing with feature beams and chill out area with bean bags and games console which then leads on to four big bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. Outside there is a lovely space with high quality garden space, ample parking for 6+ cars and a HOT-TUB! The views over the back of the Barn are fantastic on a clear day and it is very peaceful to chill out. In what you think is the garage there is a great games room which has a full size pool table, dart board, bar, fridge, toilet, sound system and outdoor speakers, we used this a lot!! Near the Barn there are two lovely villages, Sawley and Gisburn. We walked along the Ribble Way (which started at the top of the drive) to Sawley, which is a lovely walk and then went to the Spread Eagle pub for a refreshing pint before heading back. This only took a couple of hours at an easy pace (including the drink in the pub). You aren't far from many places and attractions at this Barn and we would all definitely recommend it. We will be returning in the near future and I will definitely be bring my bike and walking boots!! Thank you again to owners Alistair and Zoe who made us feel very welcome during our stay!!

Five star!! A fantastic place with a fantastic host! A great wee find for anyone wanting a break with a few friends (or the family). Huge house with everything you could possibly need. Fab pub down the road and lots of places to visit within a 20minute drive. Definitely returning, a true gem! Thanks Ally!
