Beautifully modern, immaculately clean and warm converted stable with everything you need for a really comfortable stay. Near to beaches or moors. Very highly recommended for a lovely peaceful break.

In the write up it states there are velox windows, but not in the west cottage, so the main room is rather dark and needed lights on most of the time, but they are not very bright.. Also only one toilet roll for the week! On the good side the barn was very comfortable and of high standard and very clean, also the outlook couldn’t have been better.

The holiday cottage was the best one we have ever stayed in.. It met all our expectations and more from the decor, facilities and location. The location was also great for exploring the area. A very comfortable and welcoming stay at Lowdale Barns West. Brilliant and thank you

Perfect weekend spent in Lowdale Barn, cosy, comforting and relaxing location.. Close to all the hidden gems around the moors and transportation is easy. Would highly recommend Lowdale Barns, can’t wait to return☺️

Sykes was fantastic both before and after our stay.. We have 2 dogs but our choices of cottages said 1 well behaved dog. They spoke with the owners and they agreed to 2 small well behaved dogs. Really impressed and the property didn’t disappoint!

This beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable cottage has been converted from a barn into a fabulous welcome cottage. Part of two cottages, it is a little distance from Sleights, out in the country with sheep surrounding the property, very quiet and private. The owners in the manor house close by, are there for help if needed. Close to Whitby, the sea side and the Moors. The location is really perfect. Thanks for sharing your home.

Lowdale Barn West is a fantastic holiday home with amazing attention to detail.. It has everything you need for a wonderful holiday and is in a fabulous location! Owners called round to check everything ok just after we arrived but then we were left to enjoy our relaxing and peaceful weekend. Would definitely be in my top 10!

The location was extremely quiet, except for the farm animals in the distance.. It was everything we expected and more. The village of Sleights has a small supermarket, pubs and a wonderful Fish & Chip restaurant/take away. It is about 15 minutes from Whitby and the Moors. Grosmont is 20 minutes away. Sleights railway station is 5 minutes away and there is a good bus service into Whitby. We would definitely stop here again. The barn has everything you need and once we worked out how to use the underfloor heating system, it was very cozy and warm. The decor is in keeping with the cottage and has some very nice features. We went purposely to see Whitby Gothic Weekend. It was very convenient and ideal for the purpose. A very enjoyable experience. Thank you.

This beautifully restored barn is exceptionally well furnished.. Large, comfortable and clean, it is a peaceful retreat from noise and smells of a city or town. There are two cottages in the barn and the main house (which is also being restored) on the property. There is no indication of anyone else being on the site as the barn is so self contained. Everything you might need is here in this cottage. The surrounding area is full of interest and beauty. I highly recommend Lowdale Barns West and would stay again if in the area. Thank you for sharing your cottage.

Lowdale Barns West is a beautifully converted barn on the edge of a lovely village.. Inside was spotlessly clean and warm. Just 2 barns opening onto a courtyard and the owners house adjoining made it all very peaceful. Nice walks with the dog to the river and village nearby. Good location for North York’s Moors, Whitby and the coast.

The barn is beautiful and such a relaxing place to stay.. We felt at home straight away. The location is a perfect base for walking and for touring the local area. Perfect accommodation in a perfect spot.

Great location for easy access to both the Moors and the Coast with walking straight outside the door.. Well appointed accommodation with the option of a short break which is very handy.

From the initial enquiry to making the booking , the communication etc has been excellent.. The accommodation, Lowdale Barn, was outstanding. 1st impressions were wow it’s so clean and immaculate. I have lost count of the times, we have checked in to holiday cottages,and I have had to wash cutlery and cups etc, before we could do anything else!! The owner was very welcoming, the location was perfect for us. We would definitely book again.

The cottage was extremely well presented, the main disappointment was the lack of practical items, ie no where to hang clothes apart from hangers on coat hooks, shower tray was not anti slip, only a small electric towel rail for bath sheets, no hand held wand in the shower.. The lack of a window in the lounge to admire the view was a disappointment.

When we booked way back during 2017, we booked both the East and the West Barns at the same time! One was for the EAST Barn which we took at Xmas Time when we had a very enjoyable experience - nothing to do with it being Xmas time, see our review which is currently posted on your website and couldn't really have been bettered. The second booked - WEST, is the one we used during the week just ended during June and although one might say that they are broadly similar, being adjoined, but nothing could have been further from the truth. I shall endeavour to explain the differences which was to cause us a fair few difficulties during the week and proved to be a serious disappointment. *That said - all things other than for what is contained in the following explanation - were on a par with our previous experience during our stay at Xmas in the EAST Barn, so would definitely give 10 out of 10 for the rest. Major differences:Bedroom - pretty much the same in layout (Minus the Bathroom) but the Bed was smaller and much less comfortable PLUS - there was an overlong "step down" from the bedroom to the corridor leading to the living room area. The Bathroom isn't En Suite and doesn't have any extractor Fan and one has to fiddle about in the dark looking for the lightswitch before entering - and this is emmediately after stepping down from the bedroom. *We preferred not to leave the light on all night - this shouldn't have been required anyway. Being rather long in the tooth, having dodgy knees and being a tad unsteady on my feet, plus Diabetic to boot, my numerous trips during every night resulted in numerous trips and falls during the course of the week. On return journey from the Bathroom, even though the "step up" is indeed rather high compared to the norm, I appreciate that much younger and fitter people might comment on this but manage it as fit people would - and get on with things. I only mention this as a precaution - would recommend that you could perhaps use this as a caution to aid the unwary when booking. We would definitely consider a return to this venue - but NEVER ever book the WEST again, it would always be the EAST should we ever return. The East living area is much more open and spacious and has a Larger Dining Table. To summarise - The Venue and the hosts were as excellant as on our previous visit, cannot be faulted. The WEST Barn leaves a little to be desired and proved a disappointment. The EAST Barn - see my previous posting after our stay at Xmas 2017 - Brilliant!!! Sorry this review couldn't have been positive for our stay this time around. Best wishes Alan & Sue K

It would have been helpful to have clearer directions regarding the location as we had difficulty finding Lowdale Barn.. Once we arrived we enjoyed the quietness and privacy and all the facilities provided. Cleanliness was of a high standard and we had all the equipment needed to enjoy the week. Exploring the area was easy from Sleights and although the weather was poor we still had a good time.

The cottages are a great find.. Very well presented in a peaceful surrounding. We are normally treated to a small welcome pack on arrival with previous cottages but here we just got milk and a box of biscuits. Not a problem as we took everything with us but you get used to getting them. Lovely sun trap at the back of the cottage with a small table and chairs but not that comfortable after a short sit. Perhaps look to add a couple of loungers to be used. Beautifully decorated and presented. A great weekend break which we thoroughly enjoyed with the added bonus of it being the hottest May day bank holiday on record.

I will probably revisit either this or the one next door (Lowdale Barns East) sometime next year as the location is excellent for walks and out of the way..
