Reviews

We enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable and well equipped converted barn. In a quiet rural setting with beautiful local walks. Convenient for both Harrogate and Leeds.

After a long drive from the Isle of Wight, our spacious yet cosy, extremely clean Old Barn at Newby had all the creature comforts (and more) for us and our two four-legged friends. Tucked away along a country lane, the setting was peaceful and offered an escape from reality, yet spawned Otley, Leeds, York and Harrogate a short drive away in differing directions . Other attractions were listed in a comprehensive Guest Information Pack, along with operating instructions for the various mod-cons which adorned the quaint, well-equipped kitchen. Our friendly and obliging host and hostess (Linda and Martin) had left a welcome pack of fresh eggs, yummy honey and milk to help us settle in, which we supplemented following a supermarket run, only ten minutes away. With the exception of the kitchen scissors which had gone 'walkabout', the barn was so well equipped that Mary Berry would have been at home here! We visited in June and aim to return in the other seasons of the year when the Old Barn and its surroundings will, we are sure, take on a different persona - all equally resplendent and welcoming

The best and well equipped holiday cottage that we have ever stayed in. The owners were so nice to help us with advise re road closures for the Tour de France and even invited us along with them too. Loved every minute from my son collecting the eggs to sitting outside on the lovely patio which was a sun trap. Would recommend The Old Barn to everybody and can't wait to go back.
