We found everything to be as was advertised. Newby Farm Cottage is a very tastefully converted and equipped barn. The location is peaceful and perfect for visiting places like Harrogate, York, Skipton, Ilkley, Knareborough, Fountain's Abbey and many other interesting locations. Only two points that could make the difference between a 4 and 5 star rating is that the Internet signal is a bit intermittent and phoning was only possible on a mobile phone outside the cottage. Although it was not a problem for us, it could be for someone else renting the cottage. The second point is more of a suggestion than a criticism; the sink in the kitchen was a butler's-type sink and needed a lot of water to have enough to wash anything in. A washing up bowl would have provided a more economical use of water. But I hasten to add there is a dishwasher and washing machine available for a lot of laundry or washing up. We had a problem with Sky TV while we were there and this was very swiftly and competently dealt with by the owners. Praise more than due to them for that. We forgot to sign and add our comments to the Visitors Book but would have said exactly what I have written above, if we had remembered to do so. We would thoroughly recommend Newby Farm Cottage to anyone who enjoys tasteful homely comfort, peaceful countryside, walking and interesting places to visit.

Lovely spacious converted barn in a tranquil location. Very convenient for Harrogate. The description said there was a pub approximately a mile away, it was considerably more than this, but ok if you want a long walk.
