Feels like we're fully back up and running now after a strange couple of years and some upgrades to the Cottage. Thank you Stephen, Victoria and Beth for your comments. It's so good to know you enjoyed your stay with us.

The Cottage now has a bathroom and separate shower room to make your stay more comfortable.

Get to know what’s going on in the Forest of Bowland …

We had a great afternoon at Wood End Alpacas, meeting up with the Sustainable Tourism Network for the launch of the Discover Bowland Guide 2022.

Balm for the Soul

This wonderful review speaks for itself - I feel fortunate to have helped in some small way. Thank you for taking the time to let me know.

Simply perfect …

Thank you Elizabeth for your review on Airbnb, it's so gratifying to know that we're helping Guests enjoy their stay with us while they explore the beautiful Yorkshire countryside!

"Simply perfect and the best Airbnb we've stayed at! We had the most amazing 3-day break staying at the Barn. Jill was a great host and has created an idyllic place to stay. We were especially grateful for the tips on walks and the lovely local cheeses. We visited in the height of summer and the courtyard was the perfect suntrap, great for BBQ-ing and whiling away the evening with a glass of wine. I can imagine the Barn is also perfect in winter sat on the comfy sofa in front of the fire. There's hikes from the front door since the property is on a public bridle path or if you cycle/drive other great Yorkshire sights, like Malhalm Cove and Ribblehead Viaduct, are not too far away. Would well recommend staying at this property and will definitely be back!"

One of the best, .. in the world!

Thank you so much to Lynn for taking the time to write her review on Airbnb of her stay with us in the Barn.

"We have stayed in many Airbnbs all over the world and this has to be one of the best. Super clean, very high quality amenities, extremely comfortable bed and wonderful location.'
