Larklands Self-Catering

Holiday home
Larklands is a superb 16th Century, stone-built barn conversion on a working cattle farm one mile from the pretty village of Ravensworth on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage is all on the ground floor and has three bedrooms (one twin, one double and one family room with a double and a single day bed and ensuite facilities) and a family bathroom making it possible to sleep up to seven people. The cottage also has a large and spacious fitted kitchen with a dining area and a stone arch leading to the sitting room with an electric stove, exposed roof beams and patio doors to the outside courtyard which contains garden furniture. There is also off road parking available for three cars. Larklands is a beautifully renovated holiday cottage in a delightful part of North Yorkshire making this a superb location for a relaxing family holiday.

Area
The pretty little village of Ravensworth lies just to the north of Richmond in a minor tributary of the River Swale. Made up of weathered sandstone cottages with their unusual 'Yorkshire' roofs - a mix of soft red pantiles and slate - the village is centred around a wide, picturesque village green. At one end of the green the popular Bay Horse Inn serves good food and drink. Pretty footpaths run from Ravensworth through the surrounding villages allowing visitors to enjoy many circular walks. Close by are the popular Swaledale market town of Richmond and the Teesdale market town of Barnard Castle both of which offer a wide range of amenities and shops.

Region
From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Stayed here for a weekend with couples and was fantastic. An amazing spacious converted barn. It was so big you could not hear other guests in different rooms. We arrived to a lovely gesture of a welcome hamper which went down well with us ladies. Barn was spotless clean and lovely and warm. the only sound you could hear when we checked in was ooo's and aaaa's. Nothing bad to say at all. 5 Minute walk down the farm brings you to local pub were everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We will definitely recommend this to family and friends and shall be returning next year. Thank you for an amazing weekend.

We stayed at the end of October and loved every second. We wanted a nice, relaxing and comfortable stay...and we were not disappointed! The hosts, Angela and Jack were really nice and very helpful. We arrived to a welcome hamper which was very generous. The Arches has everything you need - They have thought of everything. We stayed in The Arches - The place is huge! It was very clean, warm and comfortable. The barn conversion has been done to a very high standard. We wanted a place where we, as a family, could chill, chat, cook and spend some quality time together and The Arches was perfect for this. All the rooms are massive. Especially the main bedroom. There is a decent speed WiFi at the property - Mobile phone signal is patchy but that did not bother us. We took our dog and we enjoyed lots of walks. The dog and kids loved watching the chickens and ducks outside the window. It's a working farm so there are lots of animals. Especially sheep. The view from The Arches looks towards the village of Ravensworth - you can even see the ruins of the Castle which was built in 1200! You have to drive by it when entering and leaving the farm - We thought this was very cool. There is a huge lake on the land too. Lots of ducks and wildlife. Great for walking around. We really enjoyed our stay - We were gutted to come home.

The cottage was very well equipped and warm.. Top quality bedding and towels and we appreciated the welcome hamper. Angela and Jack were very friendly. A short walk to the local pub which served very good meals. The grandchildren loved being among the lambs,dog and chickens.

We couldn't fault anything at all about our stay.. There was everything you could possibly need but owners Angela & Jack were on hand to assist if you needed help with anything etc. The basket of food & bottle of prosecco was a lovely touch. It was great to see the hens, sheep, cockerels etc just walking past your door.

The barn conversion is more spacious and better appointed than expected. Lots of homely touches made you feel right at home. Everything is as described or better. The en-suite master bedroom and open-plan kitchen/sitting/dining room are huge and light. Two huge sofas welcomed you in. All the technology worked as promised. The farm has an wonderful selection of animals (sheep with lambs, cows with calves, goats, multiple types of poultry including guinea fowl, a dovecote with doves, plus dogs and cats. You can even feed some of the menagerie - the farmer. will give you the right food. We loved being able to walk out into the farmyard and fields with our grandson and our dog. There are three rental properties here. A house and two barn conversions. The barn conversions look at each other, so you need to not mind this and to close curtains when deshabilee. The house is more private than the barn conversions other than the sitting room which overlooks the same courtyard. The two pubs are just as promised, one a short level stroll past the surprisingly impressive ruined castle and the other a steep pull up the hill through the fields. The area was beautiful with Richmond and Barnard Castle being the local towns complete with plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and ruined castles overlooking the Swale and the Tees respectively. We enjoyed lots of lovely hill walks in Arkengarthdale, Swaledale and Wensleydale and spent half a day at the lovely Kiplin Hall.

We were very pleasantly surprised on arrival on how well equipped the cottage was, even down to every day essentials like bread and milk.. Angela and Jack were lovely hosts and the timing of our break could not have been better. To see so many lambs romping in the field was wonderful. Next time we choose Yorkshire for a break we will definitely be staying at Larklands.

Mrs Abraham

We were really happy with our stay.. The Cottage was comfortable, clean and warm. Everything was supplied that we needed, such as dishwasher tabs etc and there were lovely touches which included a vase of lilies and a bottle of prosecco. We were a little concerned about being able to keep the entrance area clean after long, muddy walks as the carpet was a little light in colour. We also had added pressure to make sure our French Bulldog obeyed the house rules! We just wish our stay was longer than 3 nights as we would have loved to keep exploring the area. Thanks for a lovely stay.

The location on the working farm was excellent and the accommodation was outstanding.. We had a warm welcome from the owners and a thoughtful welcome pack.
Mrs Read

The cottage was spacious and welcoming.. On arrival we discovered a welcome basket and flowers, which included a bottle of wine. Lovely! The weather outside was cold but inside th cottage was warm and cosy. The kitchen was well kitted out, with everything that we needed. There were lovely walks from the door, beautiful countryside and big skies.
Mr Adam
November 2017
Larklands far exceeded our expectations - the little touches really made the difference.. There was a bottle of prosecco on arrival, as well as a basket with some little nibbles & treats in. The accommodation was finished to a high spec, and there was plenty of space for 6 adults not to be on top of each other. The setting was ideal too - away from everywhere else and very peaceful.The owners were able to give us some pointers to sight see around the local area, the best routes to get to places etc.

It look good when we booked it but it was even better when we got there! The setting and the comfort of the house is excellent and really, really very spacious ( which is ideal when traveling with 2 teenagers and 1 child - not forgetting the excellent WIFI off course). Rural walks within 2 mins reach ( = Mum and dad happy), Richmond Town/shopping within 10 mins ( = Teenagers happy ), Feeding the lambs on the farm ( = Everybody!! happy) 7 days is just far too short.
Mrs Wilson

We particularly liked the quiet location of this cottage and the owners were extremely pleasant, nothing was to much bother for them, we will definitely be back at a later date.

We couldn't find fault with property at all. Excellent standard throughout. Very friendly and helpful owner. Beautiful peaceful location, but not too far away from shops and accessible to local attractions.

Fabulous accommodation ("The Barn"), located near to Richmond in the North Yorkshire Dales, with superb amenities. Angela & Jack, the owners, are the best hosts any guest could wish for. Friendly and welcoming nothing was too much trouble for these hosts who live nearby on this working farm. Our party of five, including our eighteen month old grandson, had a fantastic time in this picturesque rural setting near to the small village of Ravensworth. Used as a base to tour Durham, East and South Yorkshire, Larklands was a delight to return to after a busy day out. The numerous animals on the farm both captivated and fascinated our grandson Rory and to have such closeness with the farm animals during our seven day stay was truly memorable. If you are looking for a holiday cottage in the North Yorkshire area, based upon our experience, Larklands would be very hard to beat. Across the courtyard to our accommodation ("The Barn"), is equally high quality accommodation (which we viewed) known as "The Stables". At some point we hope to return to this area for another holiday and would not hesitate to stay in either of these excellent cottages. Thank you Angela and Jack for helping to make our stay so enjoyable.
Mrs Robinson
May 2016
Everything about the holiday was wonderful and made so by Larklands. The owners were the most welcoming of hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Our 18month old grandson had a whale of a time with all the animals. The standard of the property was extremely high and in our opinion could not be improved on in any way. We will certainly recommend this property to our friends and family and will not hesitate to return.
Mrs Slack
April 2016
This was a lovely location on a working farm. The cockerels got you up early enough to enjoy the day. The owner was lovely and kind and helpful. The standard of fixtures, fittings and furnishings were superb. We would definitely recommend it. As a base to Richmond and surrounding area it is great.

My wife and I were up in N Yorkshire for a Wedding, so a week up in the Dales was a pleasant distraction and that of our Grand Daughter, who loved the farm animals . We have stayed in many cottages up and down the Country. This let is on top of the pile. In antique terms they say 'quality sells'. This cottage had rooms and fittings of the highest quality. Beautifully planned. It was finished to such a high standard that is not normally found in holiday lets. The owners, Angela and Jack were very welcoming, even down to supplying fresh eggs. If I had to be picky and this is no reflection on our fabulous stay, I would say a curtain over the entrance and hall area would give that extra bit of privacy, especially at night when one is dashing from the bedroom to the bathroom.

We stayed at Larklands from the 12th February to the 15th 2016 with another couple there 3 children and our 3 dogs X and it was absolutely fantastic . Angela & Jack our hosts were so friendly and welcoming, and the place itself was magnificent. The kitchen was all our favourite the sheer size of it was unreal :) loved our welcome pack and the kitchen had everything you ever needed in it. The large airy rooms with open beams were even more better with 7ppl & 3 dogs we never once felt there was not enough space. All bedrooms & bathrooms spotless with lovely little touches and the master room with ensuite was another place altogether loved that they had so many games, toys & DVDs. Now on to the chickens the kids enjoyed seeing them even the dogs fancied a go :( but to top it off we got to feed a lamb which was brilliant been a huge animal lover :) over all our break away was 10/10 everything you could of asked for & more :) not to mention our friends went home a day early for work and as we are non car drivers Angela was more then happy to take us back home now not every host would do that if any X thanks for letting us stay and hope to see you again soon xxxx

This November we rented Larklands cottage for the second time. Our hosts, Angela and Jack, greeted us as old friends and the cottage was comfortable and inviting. My husband and I invited another couple to join us for part of our stay and we found that Larklands is the ideal base for touring Yorkshire. We took day trips to York, Castle Howard, Langley Castle, Ripley Castle and the Swaledale area. We also spent many pleasurable days just walking around the farm and enjoying the local scenery. We can't wait for our visit in 2016.

Visited with friends for the second year running . Fantastic property maintained and equipped to the highest of standards. Views are awesome. Hosts Jack and Angela again made us more then welcome whilst giving us the freedom to roam the property. Cannot understand how anyone could not love the house and location if you looking for a genuine quality break in gods own country. Will be back again next year

We had a great week staying at Larklands with our teenage daughter and our two small dogs. The owners are really friendly and welcoming. The barn has everything you could ask for as it's very well equipped. Our daughter loved the free Wifi! Ravensworth is an ideal base if you want to visit the beautiful market towns of Yorkshire. Larklands is really pretty and tranquil and perfect spot for a relaxing break. Our dogs had a great time watching the chickens, ducks etc from the window. Larklands is a working farm and we were slightly worried how the dogs would react but they were perfect and had a great time. Would recommend Larklands to anyone looking for luxury accommodation in a beautiful and relaxing location.

We spent a week in this lovely barn conversion and cannot rate it too highly. It is much better equipped than many of the other places we have rented and is extremely comfortable. We were made to feel like very welcome guests and Jack and Angela could not have been more helpful or kinder. We even had a constant supply of free, fresh eggs! The area itself is beautiful and we found it very easy to get to Richmond and places a bit further afield such as Fountains Abbey and Durham. Would love to go back.

My husband and I spent two weeks at Larklands on our annual trip to the UK. The whole experience was a delight. Angela and Jack are wonderful hosts. The barn conversion is to very high standards, a beautiful old building with a very modern and comfortable interior. Bedrooms and bathrooms were well stocked with linens and very peaceful for a good nights sleep. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals from our local shopping sprees. The market town of Richmond is a short drive away and has a wonderful butcher and fresh produce markets. Larklands is close to several good restaurants and pubs. All in all, a fantastic vacation home, one that we will revisit as often as possible.
Mrs Ward

We loved staying at Larklands and found everything to be of an excellent standard. The property was exceptionally clean and fresh and the furnishings were of a very high standard. We particularly loved the chickens who were fun to feed and watch. It was a perfect holiday house and we certainly plan to return.

Extremely welcoming and friendly hosts, spacious well equipped kitchen and lounge areas and a beautiful location from which we visited Richmond, Barnard Castle, Darlington and the Yorkshire Dales with Lightwater Valley theme park about 35 miles away - there's something to please people of all ages. The barn is in a peaceful, beautiful setting with free range hens wandering around supplying fresh eggs and we even had the chance to feed a new born lamb! As a family, we had a wonderful week in this blissful place and hope to return soon.

This is a relaxing picturesque place to stay the owners are so accommodating and very friendly would definitely recommend I never realised Yorkshire was such a beautiful place this barn conversion had everything you needed in it would definitely recommend, I already have recommended this to my family and friends
Mrs Norman

The cottage was even better than we expected from the photos. Very spacious, extremely well done conversion of an old stone barn. We like to cook and the kitchen was set up beautifully. The bathrooms were very luxurious, large and comfortable bedrooms and living room. The rural atmosphere was tranquil and the farm animals added extra entertainment value. The best part of the experience was the very warm welcome that we received from the owners and their attention to our needs during our stay. The owners welcomed us as if we were old friends and we left feeling as if we had made two wonderful new friends. y

Put simply, DO NOT go to Larklands if you DO NOT like: 1. Big, beautiful barn conversions with loads of space. 2. Places that are well heated, decorated, furnished and equipped. 3. Dark night time skies which show the brilliance of the stars 4. Quiet rural locations where the sound of silence at night is only punctuated by nature, and not a great deal more by day time. 4. Chickens peering through your door or full length windows 5. The delicious eggs from the said birds. 6. A great pub 10 min walk/2 min drive away 7. The northern Yorkshire Dales close by. 8. Welcoming but unobtrusive hosts. Get our drift?????

The cottage was fantastically equipped, the best I've stayed in. All the rooms are comfortable and spacious. The welcome pack and other little extras gave it a luxurious feeling. The owners are very friendly and on-hand should you need anything. It is situated near places for really great days out. We went somewhere different every day. We enjoyed trips to Reeth, Bolton Castle, Easby Abbey, Constable Burton Halls, Aysgarth Falls, Muker, Keld and Staithes.
Mr Guest

We stayed here with two friends from Lancashire and upon arrival we met our hosts.They were most welcoming and set the tone for what was to be a very enjoyable 7 days at Larklands. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they immediately sorted out any queries that we had. The cottage is one of the best we have stayed in, and we have holidayed in some excellent ones. It is very well equipped with everything one could wish for and the Wi-Fi enabled me to check on the various place that we wished to visit. The large bedroom is very spacious with a wonderful comfy bed, settee and en-suite. One always wonders when booking a cottage if it will be as good as it is made out to be. Well for anyone considering Larklands then I would say don't hesitate, you will not be disappointed.
Mr Maudsley
June 2014
The Owners' hospitality was second to none as was the quality of every single part of the barn conversion. I cannot describe what excellent value this holiday let was. The surrounding area has some beautiful scenery and things to do. The owners have a folder in the barn with all the local tourist attractions within. The village of Ravensworth is so relaxed and friendly, a breath of fresh air. We will DEFINITELY be going back to the barn soon and if anyone is on the fence about whether to go or not all I can say is do it, you will not regret it. Thanks to the owners for a wonderful time away.

We stayed here as a family group that included our children and grandchildren and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts have not penny-pinched with this accommodation therefore we found it well equipped, clean, comfortable. The setting was ideal for those who appreciate peaceful surroundings and our young grandchildren enjoyed playing with the farm animals. The hosts were welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. We would welcome the chance to stay agian.

Larklands cottage is a very comfortable and well- equipped cottage and is ideally situated for exploring the Yorkshire Dales and Moors. The cottage is light, spacious and well presented and the children enjoyed seeing the chickens and lambs around the place. It was clean and the facilities were very good. We were given a warm welcome with fresh eggs and bread. The nearby village is quiet and picturesque with a friendly pub serving a wide range of food.

We loved meeting the owners of this property, their warmth and kindness made our holiday very special. The location of the property is superb with with a fabulous local pub within walking distance, lovely lake on the property for the dogs and interesting surroundings to explore. The house was a great place to spend time in and far larger than the pictures suggested. The property felt far more like a home than a holiday rental.

We have had a fabulous stay at Larklands. The accommodation is first class and has everything you need and more. The farm offered endless adventures for our 3 and 5 year old girls and feeding lambs, ducks and baby chicks was a delight! The surroundings offered peace, relaxation and tranquility for mum, dad, granny and grandad. And the dog loved the countryside walks! The lovely town of Richmond was close enough and had everything you need and the area is stunning! Definitely eat at The Shoulder of Mutton pub. Fabulous food! All in all, a wonderful place to escape to and definitely will return...

Have just enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week with my sister @ Larklands, the cottage is a joy to stay in, on the outskirts of a quiet little village, surrounded by beautiful views. The cottage is on a working farm and the animals, especially the chickens, are a joy to watch. The cottage has everything anyone could wish for and within walking distance of the local pub. I would recommend a holiday at this cottage, any time of the year, a little gem, therefore please ignore the one negative review from JennieHo5, they must have been wearing blinkers or just 'miffed' that they couldn't let the dogs chase the sheep!

Lovely location, spectacular views & a spacious property with wooden beams, skylights and stone archways that is lacking in nothing! It was a family holiday of 4 adults (2 of which are wheelchair users) and our 15month old son, who it was a particularly fantastic experience for with the large open spaces, tractors to watch plus chickens and ducks to feed. We couldn't have asked for better hosts, they looked after us brilliantly with a superb welcome pack consisting of eggs, bread, milk, butter, jam etc, a fabulous hearty home made meal on arrival (small additional charge) and fresh flowers throughout the home. The only downside was it had to come to an end, so we promptly booked in for our next visit!

This was our second visit and when we drove up to the property it was like coming home. Our hosts made us feel very welcome. It was lambing time when we were there and that was lovely to see and there was lots of activity on the farm. Our three dogs loved it. Whilst there we had sunshine, snow and rain but the property is always comfortable to be in and very cosy despite the large rooms. The 'Shoulder of Mutton' is a fantastic pub for food.

Excellent doesn't begin to describe the hospitality shown by the owners. We were overwhelmed and our grandchildren fell in love with the farm. The first night meal, prepared by the owner was delicious as was the welcome package of eggs/butter/jam/bread/milk etc. There wasn't a thing missing in the kitchen - and if it was, I'm sure they would have provided it. Overall, this team ensured that we'd want to visit Larklands and Yorkshire again. Everyone was knowledgeable about the area and the local pub was a delight.

We all liked the standard of the property, and the living room was a great feature, particularly the sofa. The welcome gift was a nice touch too. We also liked the flowers scattered around the cottage.

We stayed at Larklands for one week.The outside photographs do not tell the whole story.The lounge faces a derelect buiding a broken down old barn.There is not any privacy as you share the back patio with three other families.The back patio is made up of loose chippings and not a suitable surface for anyone with any kind of mobility problem.The owners who at first appear friendly are always around and are overbearing.Far from being pet friendly there is no private area to let out your dogs without a lead as the courtyard and surround are overrun with cats and chickens which drives them mad.The advertisement said it is a working farm, however this was not fair to the dogs.The advertisement shows views across fields to ruins which can only be seen from the kitchen window,it also said to collect the keys from the farm opposite not next door.We have been holidaying in this part of yorkshire for many years with many companies but this was the worst.No privacy!

I liked the location and friendliness of the owners. The property was warm and comfortable and well equipped. The farm animals were lovely ducks, chickens, sheep, hens scattered around - great for kids. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday in a great location.

The owners were very friendly and on hand to help etc but totally respected your privacy. The animals around the farm were fascinating and entertaining. The best part was staying in a beautiful house and being able to have our dogs with us. Would return again and again as the surrounding areas for walking are also fantastic.

The location of the property was excellent and close to a variety of tourist related amenities. Excellent access routes to other parts of the area. Owners provided a welcome pack on arrival which was most appreciated. Owners were very helpful, friendly and readily available for chats and to give advice generally.

The barns have been tastefully converted to provide first class accommodation and a real homely feel. The photos do not do justice to the property and has to be experienced to fully appreciate. A real home from home. Located close to the A66 gives a central position to explore the dales, towns and attractions within easy distance. Tesco delivery was on time and saved time on food shopping. The property is well managed and everything is provided even down to the fresh flowers on arrival, and if you need something else just ask and the owners will do their best to help. Gill and Angela make the whole experience wonderful. It's on a farm but without the mud and smells you sometimes get. Open the back door and collect the eggs from the free range chickens (plus a liberal sprinkling of cockerels) Feeding the orphaned lambs was a thrill for our daugther too. Two pubs to choose from, one in the village and a better one just up the hill above the cattle barns. Otherwise just melt into the massive settee and watch TV or DVDS provided. Overall the best farm holiday we have had.

Our holiday in Larklands was fantastic from beginning to end. It was our first getaway with our 7 month old daughter and our first holiday in the UK. Larklands is a perfect cottage for a country getaway. The accommodation and facilities are fantastic, the setting is beautiful. Angela and her husband were the perfect hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Will definitely be revisiting.

The cottage was clean, well equipped and clearly well looked after. Our hosts were friendly and available to help whenever possible. Lots of small touches made a big difference. Easily the best cottage we've ever rented.
