I reached out to Helen before our stay to clarify a few things and she was incredibly helpful and accommodating, such a great host. The cottage itself was perfect, we were so grateful for how warm and clean it was! It really is out in the middle of nowhere which was ideal for us, we really hope to return.

It appeared as shown on the website . As the barn is a bit behind the farm you need to drive country lanes which can be a bit bumpy in parts.

The best cottage we've ever rented! beautiful location in a very beautiful nature reserve. The equipment of the cottage is very good and is cosily furnished. Very nice to take walks from the cottage or to relax on the private terrace. You only hear the murmur of the river, the sheep and the birds. For us a location to definitely go back to.

This holiday cottage is in a picturesque setting in the heart of a working sheep farm. There are at least five heavy wooden farm gates to open and close on coming and exiting the farm.

The Barn is in a fantastic calm and quiet Longsleddale. Except the sheep , but watching them and other animals, make this place special. Walks can be started from the cottage or just a short drive away. Helpful owner too .
