Lack of information ie wi fi code & hot tub use
Mr Sixsmith, September 2020
We had a great time in the barn and the communication all round was really good.. Janet (the host) was there when we needed her and really supportive. I would recommend the barn to any large group and the setting is stunning.
Mr Whiting, August 2020
We all had a really lovely time
We had a lovely long weekend with a group of friends and 2 dogs, 10 of us, so we rented both barns. Beautifully decorated with cosy woodburning stove for Februarury evenings, great place to sit and chat with friends, plenty of room round the table, and on the sofas. Well equipped kitchens with everything we needed, and comfortable beds for a great nights sleep. Loved the hot tub after a good walk up Ingleborough, and enjoyed the view of Ingleborough from the house! Will definitely be back to this place to explore more of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales from this perfect base. Helpful and friendly owners made it all very welcoming, would definitely recommend a visit.
Mrs Harris, July 2020
Ingleborough Barn is in a wonderful location and is a superb barn conversion.. The owners who live in the farm down the lane were very welcoming and helpful.
We had a super time in the barn and exploring in the surrounding area, despite 'storm Ciara'. Highly recommended.
Mr Greenwood, February 2020
Owners very helpful,
Weather wasn’t the best, but all our group have said they would like to return
Mr Bennett, February 2020
Great family break.. Thanks
Our party of 10 adults and 4 children and 1 collie dog stayed in this lovely barn conversion over Christmas 2019. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. It was comfortable, clean, cosy and warm in a modern country farmhouse style. The owners had even decorated the property with a large Christmas tree and other stylish decorations giving it a festive feel. They also left some very much appreciated chocolates, biscuits, crackers and fizz to add to the celebrations!
Any worries about cooking Christmas Dinner for 14 in an unfamiliar kitchen were unfounded. We had everything we needed to cook a huge 4 course meal. Contrary to some other visitors comments we didn't experience any problems with showers or hot water.
We spent most of our time relaxing in the lounges, playing games, watching TV and using the hot-tub, so didn't really explore the countryside or amenities around., although two of the party did climb Pen-y-ghent on Christmas Eve. Everyone else made do with the beautiful views of the surrounding countryside .There was a good selection of shops in the nearby village of High Bentham, a few of which came in handy for last minute shopping, and sadly we didn't have time to try out any local pubs:( It was ideal for our dog too as the garden area was walled in.
Like many of the other clients we visited the farm itself with the children. Andrew was so friendly and happy to show us all the animals and watch the cows being milked, and gave the kiddies a chance to sit on the beautifully restored old tractor called Connie! A highlight for the young ones. We all agreed it would be a lovely place to come back to in late spring or summer, when the countryside around would be at its best, and we could explore the area more. If you're thinking of booking, go ahead, you won't be disappointed.
Mrs Grindley, January 2020
Owners on hand, helpful.. Facilities clean. Plenty of space, clean bedding and towels.
Lovely homely touches with it being christmas, made to feel welcome. Couldn't of asked for a better place and friendlier owners.
Wyness, December 2019
Fantastic weekend with great facilities.. A few teething issues but the owners couldn't do enough to make sure we were comfy and happy.
Mr Bennett, December 2019
The barn was amazing & the owners could not do enough for us , we will be coming again .. ..
Miss Riding, November 2019
Pictures didn’t do it justice
Miss Stokes, November 2019
We stayed for my mum's 70th birthday.. There was lots of room for 13 of us. Great set up with the 2 sitting rooms. Lots of outside space. The owner was an excellent host and very helpful. I would highly recommend Ingleborough Barn!
Mrs Cochrane, August 2019
The location and views were wonderful and overall the family enjoyed the weekend break.. The layout suited us well apart from the 2 heavy doors between the 2 living areas. These doors really needed to be able to be left open if the barns are let as 1 unit. We were very pleased that the owner brought us wood for the burners and charcoal for the BBQ. The hot tub temperature was ideal and very clean. However, we felt the bathrooms/plumbing were unsatisfactory as there was no hot water in 3 of the showers and low pressure in the other. Only 1 towel rail was working. It took us a while to get the oven and dishwasher working when we arrived as the circuit breaker had tripped, but we did appreciate the dishwasher tablets and tea towels being provided. Overall just met expectations but would say it was overpriced for 3 nights.
Just returned from Ingleborough Barn which we booked for my 30th birthday! We stayed for 5nights and the age range of our party was from 8 weeks old - late 30s! There were 9 adults, 4 children, 1 infant and a newborn! The barn is fabulous, lots of space, the views are breathtaking and it is kitted out with everything you need. To be honest the pictures really do not do it justice! But the icing on the cake is the owners! Andrew was just amazing - he gave the children memories they will treasure forever! They saw lambs being born, fed 1 day old lambs and calves! He was just so friendly, welcoming and really couldn't do enough even when he is so busy working! We will definitely be back!
Our wedding present from the parents, kids, n grandchildren. 14 of us ranging from 2 years old to 80+.
Fabulous cottages joined together, clean n all requirements catered for.
Views n location top notch.
Working farm n the kids were allowed to witness lambing n calving, tremendous experience they wont forget.
Thank you so much to Janet n Andrew, great hosts n I guess we may well return xxx
Mrs Hickie, April 2019
Great accommodation, ideal for a large family group.. Generally worked well, but a bit awkward when we all wanted to sit together, either at the table or in the lounge. Beds very comfortable. Lovely location with great views.
Mrs Phillips, March 2019
The Barn was a fantatsic choice for us all as a family.. 12 of us stayed and it didnt feel like we were cramped cause the place is very spacious. Kitchen and dinning was great.. kids loved the outside space and we saw a coouple of lambs born at a distance too. Kids went down the the farm for a little tour... Janet and her husband were very accomodating. The hot tub was a hit with everyone too.
Mr Wade, March 2019
Had a lovely time at the cottage.. So much space for our party of 12. Cottage was clean and tidy. We were pleasently surprised at all the little extras like hand wash, washing up liquid, kitchen foil etc tea towels and bath towels..! Hot tub was perfect, the outdoors was stunning. The photos do not do justice to this cottage is soo much bigger than it seems!! Had a fabulous time...book it now for large party, I have already recommended it at work!!
Mrs Patel, February 2019
Lovely big cottage plenty of space for 14 people and 2 dogs
Mrs Menarry, January 2019
There were 12 adults staying at the Barn for a 50th celebration and it was a perfect size accommodation.. The barn was more than big enough for us all, plenty of space and room. There was more than enough crockery, utensils etc and enough room at the dining table to comfortably fit 12 adults. Quality of fittings and furniture was apparent throughout as well as the beautiful way the barn had been restored with its lovely brickwork and stunning wooden beams.
The hot tub was fantastic, clean and really toasty, we all enjoyed relaxing in it until 2am (Jan 14th, temp was 1 degree) and was still warm enough.
The Barn overall was well worth the money and we will without doubt like to return again.
I would not hesitate in recommending this Barn to anyone.
Can I say a special thanks to the owners of the barn, Andrew and Janet who could not have been nicer and so helpful with any additional requests we had.
They made our weekend very special.
Mrs Keenan, January 2019
Very friendly owners (inviting us to milking time)
.... Very friendly owners (inviting us to milking time)
Brilliant location - great views and walking
House needs some tlc and regular maintenance
Mrs Garlick, December 2018
The property is better than the photos depict especially the large dining table area (it looks cramped but is anything but).. Owner very accommodating and just a beautiful location.
Mrs Brown, November 2018
Love the barn and the setting..
Mr Allen, October 2018
We were initially deceived when booking this as it says for 14 people but this is 12 adults and 2 children if you read closer (luckily one couple could not come).. When we arrived, this barn exceeded all expectations, it was cosy, clean, wonderfully large, amazing views. Very homely, but a luxury at the same time! We had a slight issue with the heating on the first day, and we messaged the owner who fixed it straight away! We would recommend this barn to anyone! We would also come back tomorrow! It’s amazing!
Miss Clarke, September 2018
The views are superb and the layout of the two Barns worked very well for us.. The owners and their family were very friendly and welcoming. This extended to a fascinating visit to the milking parlour where we greatly enjoyed seeing the calves and watching the cows being milked. The hot tub was great fun. It was a very quiet location which suited our family group ideally.
Mrs Page, August 2018
Booked Ingleborough barn for my wife's 60th birthday.. 12 adults and 2 toddlers.The barn was everything I expected and more.The hot tub is brilliant.Janets daughter was great with the little ones,showing them the tractors and showing us around the farm during milking.We loved it.Will definitely return against.
Mr Guest, August 2018
We loved the hot tub and the wifi was excellent.. Location was remote and beautiful, when the mist and rain lifted. The parking was very good. The owner was very friendly and obliging.
Mrs Lynch, August 2018
We had a wonderfully relaxing time at Ingleborough Barn.. We were a family party of 12 with two dogs. The barn is very spacious and comfortable with beautiful views towards the 3 Peaks and the hot tub is a real treat. Janet and Andrew were very friendly and helpful, especially when we had problems with our car! Thank you Janet for the lift! All in all, we loved the stay and would stay again.
Ms Wagg, August 2018
Our group of twelve plus two dogs loved Ingleborough Barn.. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Great to have two lounges when World Cup, Tour de France and Wimbledon on at same time! Stunning views from the barn especially from the hot tub. Very helpful owners gave advice about online shopping delivery. We would have loved more fridge space for the beers and sparkling wine! Terrific venue for a reunion - loads to do for all interests: erratic boulder walks, Wensleydale cheese factory visit, antique shop browsing in Kirkby Lonsdale.
Miss Young, July 2018
We had very specific needs and I could have saved myself a lot of searching if I had just telephoned the excellent customer service team.. They were amazing and thanks to them we had a fab time.
Mrs Thomas, July 2018
Marvellous views of Ingleborough.. Immaculately clean and attractively furnished converted barn. Lovely friendly owners on the nearby farm who were only too happy to answer any queries and also showed our four year old grandson around the farm milking parlour. Everyone had fun in the Hot tub!
N.B. Take fly trapp papers to put up in the kitchen.....You are near a farm!!
Mrs Coyne, July 2018
A wonderful stay at Ingleborough Barn.. Fantastic house - basically two sets of accommodation with a door between them. This was helpful for us as my sisters dogs were easily containable in one side when needed. A big space with lots of light. Loads of bathrooms. Fantastic garden and hot tub. Farmer and his family were friendly and available but didn’t crowd or suddenly appear - the barn is on its own so great for privacy and the farm is just down the road. Farmer welcomed the kids to come and look around the farm and he talked to them about it. Had several great days out in the Dales, Lakes and Forest of Bowland, all beautiful areas to visit. The three peaks are visible from the garden and you can watch the sun set each evening from the hot tub. We loved it and hope to stay there again. Would highly recommend. Thanks.
Mrs Jenkin, May 2018
The barn was really good wonderful setting.. All the bedrooms a good size. Hosts very helpful when needed otherwise left us to it which was just what we wanted. Had a brilliant time celebrating 3 big family birthdays. Would definitely go again.
Mrs Sowden, April 2018
Our children & there partners paid for us to go to Ingleborough barn with them for our 40th wedding anniversary for the weekend then they left & we stayed the rest of the week we married in December 1977 & were supposed to honeymoon in the lakes but circumstances were so we never made it we don’t get together so often so it was an amazing weekend with them all we went somewhere every day it’s a great base for most areas up there I think the last day was the best as we went to Lake Windermere Ingleborough barn is an absolutely stunning property with everything anyone needs I think Andrew & Janet have thought just about everything anyone would ever need my one gripe would be there wasn’t an egg flip lol what an amazing time we had Andrew & Janet are really lovely friendly people busy people but still have time for you the farm & animals are great to look round I would thoroughly recommend in fact I already have friends & anyone especially hikers walkers people who love beautiful scenery to try the most stunning Ingleborough barn view of the three peaks out of the lounge windows amazing views we will be making more trips to Ingleborough barn in the future going to make this a regular thing thank you Sykes & Andrew & Janet from the Kendell family halifax..
Mr Kendell, March 2018
Fabulous place to stay with stunning location.. Excellent facilities, especially the hot-tub! Very friendly and extremely helpful hosts. All 12 of us had a fantastic experience and hope to return in the future.
Mr Long, March 2018
Our holiday was fantastic.. Booking our cottage was very easy and welcoming. The cottage was superb, the facilities were great, the kids loved the open space and the hot tub was the icing on the cake.
Thank you all very much.
Mr Lewis, February 2018
Great cottage, great location, everything we needed
Amazing and beautiful property. Set out if bedrooms was really good as each one has its own bathroom right next to it. Spacious well maintened and clean . Gorgeous views around about. Hot tub was fantastic and only a 2 second dash in the snow. Plenty of room so no one got on top of each other. The only problem that needs rectified is lack of kitchen equipment between the 2 kitchens and lack of fridge space. Not enough pots, pans, baking sheets and simple utensils such as wooden spoons for 2 kitchens and for 14 people. Also 2 small fridges are not enough for the size of the house especially as their is room for a large fridge too. Beautiful area, well kept clean accommodation and would return
Dr Lauder, February 2018
Had an absolutely fantastic weekend.. The cottage was beautiful and the surroundings just as lovely. We all thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend. We will definitely be booking again.
Mrs Braithwaite, November 2017
Wonderful property for a large group, lots of space .. Hot tub fabulous! Had a great week here and hopefully will return.
Our family booked the barn for our surprise hen weekend and we could not have been happier!!!
What a beautiful, spacious and altogether wonderful place this is to spend time away from the noise of the city!
Hot tub was PERFECT and could not recommend this place enough!!
It truly made our hen weekend both relaxing, fun and one to remember
Kim and Helen
Mr Allen, November 2017
This is an excellent venue.. It was ideal for our family with plenty of space for the children ranging in age from 12 down to 5 to have space to do their own thing. We all loved it and the location and would like to return when we're able to do so.
My mum booked this place for her 70th birthday celebrations with all the family. The conversion has been very sympathetically carried out and the barn was a lovely place to stay. Beds were comfortable, there was plenty of living space (and comfy sofas!) and the hot tub was a fun addition! A problem with the drains was very quickly sorted by the owner. Heating is controlled by several thermostats, so be sure to adjust the upstairs ones before you go to bed or you'll roast!! The only thing I'd improve on would be fridge space - two small fridges for such a large number of people wasn't really enough. An extra fridge in the spacious porch would solve the issue. All in all though we really liked this place and we'd go back.
Rev Jones, October 2017
Fantastic barn and great location..
Miss Bleasdale, June 2017
Overall the barn was amazing.. Lovely location,beautiful barn.
We loved everything a out the property and would highly recommend it for large families.
Plenty of space for 12 people to enjoy and th hot tub was lush.
Ms Goddard, December 2016
The barn was absolutely gorgeous and our party of 12 had a wonderful time
Mrs Hulme, October 2016
The cottage was brilliant, size, layout and comfortable.. We went for my birthday a girls weekend away, it met all of our expectations and was beautifully looked after by the owners.
Owners were brilliant and couldn't do enough to help make your stay very comfortable and enjoyable.
We would definitely book here again!!
Amazing place, quiet location but lovely place to go walking too.
Added bonus is the hot tub...
Only thing I would mention from a safety aspect is that there are no lights around the hot tub and it is in the evening quite dark, so would recommend lighting in this area.
Mrs Birchall, September 2016
Excellent location and well appointed property
Miss Wilkinson, September 2016
Booked for a fantastic surprise 50th birthday which went to perfection.. Great location. Private yet close enough to local attractions. Hot tub was fantastic and the owners were very helpful and friendly!
The accommodation was outstanding, could not fault it, thank you. We loved it, we had 5 children and six adults in our party and we all had a lovely time. The owners were the best, and thank you for showing us the sheep shearing and the milking of the cows. We did loads of things from Ingleton Falls, Skipton Castle to Windermere and Kendal. We were very lucky with the weather which just made the holiday!
Could not recommend this highly enough. We stayed for a week May/June 2016, it is beautifully decorated and clean, so much space for our extended family, the enclosed garden gave peace of mind for the kids, but we didn't need to worry as lane so quiet down to the farm, the kids could have been out all day with no worries. Beautiful views and so quiet, we loved it. The Owners are so accommodating and great, and we saw the milking of the cows and sheep shearing, it made the kids holiday! Hot tub for the Adults :). Also excellent wi-fi to satisfy the kids, to ensure lie in for adults!! Our dog came for the last two days and loved the garden and walks locally, Thank you x
We visited Skipton, Ingleton Falls and White Scar caves all within easy reach, the scenery is unbelievable!
