This recently finished barn conversion enjoys a great location in picturesque Nidderdale near to the delightful village of Darley,  with a secret pathway to the popular Wellington Inn from behind the property!  Award winning jams, marmalades, jellys, sauces, chutneys and cakes made in the owner’s farmhouse are available for guests to try and buy to take home - scrummy!


The cottage is situated on the owner’s farmland where their farmhouse dates back to circa 1650. The barn conversion, Barney's Cottage is eco-friendly with ground source heat pump and solar thermal hot water system.

Internally there is a lifestyle room incorporating a ivory matt kitchen with onyx worktops and dining area to seat 8 guests, a separate lounge and gorgeous feature window to allow natural light to flood in.

Downstairs cloakroom, boot store and toilet with basin.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms both ensuite with stunning Nidderdale views.  Master bedroom with 6ft super king sized bed (can be 2 singles on request) with en suite bathroom with separate shower, basin, toilet and heated towel rail.   Bedroom 2 is a twin room with ensuite shower, basin and toilet. 

Outside sitting area - perfect for summer time drinks and alfresco dining.  Welcome pack including Barney Farmhouse baked products.

Nidderdale has something for everyone!  Lush valleys with meandering riverside walks, glorious upper moorland for those with a little more energy to work off, off road mountain bike trails, industrial historic heritage and the delightful town of Pateley Bridge at its heart.

Recent owners say "Barneys is perfect" "Fantastically well equipped" "A shame to be going home" "A hidden treasure" "Spacious and comfortable" and "Thank you for a fab holiday".

What a fantastic week! We have loved out time in Yorkshire so much. Perfect cottage and great for exploring. Had a lovely day on the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam train, Bronte Museum in Haworth worth a visit and Ilkley a lovely town (with Betty's we got into without queuing!) Thanks Sue, Brian and Robbie for the lovely warm welcome and very tasty hamper. We will be back!
