“Lovely barn, bigger than expected!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This barn is easy to find (based on Mike's directions) and has a spacious driveway. It is located in a small village just off the main road.

Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised by the space that this barn has to offer. All rooms are very spacious and larger than we imagined from the provided photos. The barn has been recently refurbished and decor is to a high standard. It is very obvious that the owners/ manager always go the extra mile with this property by providing even little things such as tea, coffee, sugar, etc. The bed is large and comfortable (will have to find out where that duvet set is from!!!) with the added extra of a small TV in the bedroom. The shower is very powerful which is great and not what you would expect from a village in the middle of the hills. There is also a free standing bath (although, we didn't use this on our trip). The usual extras such as sky TV were handy (especially when a tropical storm drops by for a visit!).

The only reason that we have not given 5 stars for this property are: there are quite a few cobwebs that could do with being removed with a quick dust around, there is a large floor to ceiling window at the front of the property (looking out onto the shared driveway and main road), we found that this would have benefitted from some light curtains/blinds just to add a bit more privacy to the barn.

Fortunately, during our stay, the owners of the main house were away on holiday and so we had privacy however we feel that if they were around, this privacy would be lost due to the large window plus the entrance to the barn being in their back garden.

Also, we could not get any mobile signal in and around the village of West Witton. Because of this, we feel that the property would benefit from wifi (a little bit of access to the outside world is always good)

Overall, a lovely stay in the Yorkshire Dales and Mike is a lovely gentleman and always willing to help. This property is ideal for a quiet couples retreat.
