spectacular views
8 of us stayed here for a family weekend at the end of January and we certainly were not disappointed. The barn has 5 ensuite bedrooms: 4 doubles and one double with an extra single bed. Everything was of the highest standard, from the comfy open-plan lounge with log burner to the well-appointed kitchen area. We enjoyed using the range cooker and the 3 fridges were a bonus. Children of all ages are well catered for with the chill-out zone on the first floor, complete with bean bags, board games, TV and games console. As for outside: the views were spectacular and we loved relaxing in the hot tub, although the walk to it from the house was chilly to say the least! The pool table in the games room proved very popular and the bar with fridge/freezer was very convenient for drinks outside. The barn is ideal for walkers but equally good for a family party or for simply relaxing. Ali was friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The bottle of fizz and chocolates on arrival were a nice touch. Our only criticism is that there was only comfy seating for 5 people in the lounge. Another sofa would make it perfect. This trip was so successful that we have already booked for next year.

fantastic family stay.....
11 of our family stayed here for 1 week in July....perfect size for our party. comfortable beds & luxurious all round. outside seating area, hot tub & games room with outdoor music system was fab. we had a few BBQ's also. Ally & family were very welcoming & nothing was a bother. We had cracking weather all week which topped it off. Would definitely recommend.

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.

Absolutely Fantastic!
Everything about this place was perfect, it's location, it's hot tub, it's kitchen and dining area, it's games room, it's beautiful bedrooms (all of which are en-suite) and luckily for us the weather! The owners could not have been nicer and it was a lovely touch arriving to a home made cake and bottle of fizz! We are already looking at returning next year!

Absolute Perfection
A group of 8 ladies stayed at Ox Hey Barn for a long weekend and we had a fantastic time - we didn't want to leave. The house itself has been renovated to the highest standards and spec. The kitchen is fully equipped (beyond any expectations) and the living areas are more than comfortable. This includes both a sitting room and a lounge area with bean bags. Five double bedrooms, all en-suite, are incredibly comfortable and all boast amazing views. The outside space is second to none. The terrace, seating area, hot tub and games room are a real luxury. The setting, being surrounding only by fields and hills, is idyllic. There is a walk to the local village (Sawley) which takes 50 minutes each way through farmland, which is perfect. Sawley itself is a beautiful village with a great pub and beautiful abbey. The owner (and host) lives next door and could not have made us feel more comfortable. He is on hand whenever you need him for any query or concern. We had everything we needed and were made to feel totally at home by the owner. Could not have asked for more. We will definitely be booking again (and again and again...)!
