Very comfortable cottage, well provisioned with plenty of opportunities to dry Coats and dog towels after a very enjoyable but wet week.. Cottage was very warm and the owners extremely helpful.

A nice cottage.. I’d imagine in the Sumer (or drier months) this would be a spectacular place, however, having arrived on the day Storm Dennis was about to start, the preceding rain meant access to the property was restricted to one way only, (and going the other way, the pathway had been closed on the route to Pateley bridge), so having young children this then meant to go to lately bridge was a 2.2 mile drive (uphill and downhill) instead of a nice family walk.. the weather severely restricted our activities as a family. The property was spacious, water was very hot, and the heating was very quick to come on when required. Only other negative, was the WiFi was a bit flakey (on your phone), but non existent on the smart TV, which meant due to the rain everyday, would have been a blessing for the children whilst at the property. (In the process of being updated, but not yet finalised) The owner was very friendly.

We’ve just returned from a fabulous week here. Perfectly located - we visited York, Whitby and a multitude of other places, there is SO much to see and do near here (Hackfall Woods, Brimham Rocks, Fountains Abbey, Coldstones Cut, Grassington, Nunnington Hall, Druids Temple...) we absolutely loved it. The cottage is beautifully decorated and so cosy, Jenny was super helpful and the perfect host - friendly and welcoming (and finding us matches to light the candles for our pumpkins!). There was plenty of room for our family of four, but it would have been perfect for two couples. Honestly can not fault Barn Owl Cottage, everything we needed, cannot recommend highly enough.

Barn Owl cottage was a delight to stay in, the facilities were brilliant: we had everything we needed, and the location was perfect for exploring Yorkshire.. We had a brilliant holiday and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Barn Owl Cottage - it was light, airy, tastefully decorated and had the perfect amount of space for our family of four. There were lovely little touches such as tea, biscuits, hand soap and moisturiser that make your stay that bit more comfortable.

Just come back from a weeks stay in Barn Owl Cottage.. It was a homely cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Jenny was lovely and couldnt do enough for us. Will definately be returning!
Mrs Hornsby
October 2018
Great value.. Beautiful spot. Lovely helpful owner. Cottage lovely , warm and tastefully decorated. Small niggles would be not enough crockery bearing in mind there is a dishwasher, and not more towels as mentioned in previous reviews but a large better quality towel would be much appreciated especially for my 6 foot husband. Showers poor but unlike previous items not easy to rectify, and reflected in reasonably priced rental. Would we return? Definitely!
Mrs Gasson
October 2018
We enjoyed our stay at Owl Barn.. Jenny, the owner was friendly and approachable. The location is ideal, just over a mile on the roads to Pateley Bridge or a little longer by the scenic walk along the river. The cottage itself is spacious and tastefully decorated and furnished. The heating is simple and easily controlled by a thermostat which is great for the cold snap we had during our stay. There was plenty of hot water too. We found the kitchen was well equipped for our needs. (Note, unlike most other cottages there is no starter pack of tea/coffee etc so guests need to bring initial supplies) We found the Internet unreliable during our stay, the main issue being it would frequently go off for a few minutes and then come back on again. Two or three times when it didn’t come on, we had to contact Jenny to reboot the system which she kindly did to get it going again. The lights over the mirrors in the ensuite and bathroom have no bulbs in them so don’t work - this would be useful for applying make-up/shaving etc (neither room has any natural light). On Sykes website, it is clear that there is a variety of toiletries supplied in both the bathroom and ensuite, which is misleading and not even soap is provided.

This was a long awaited holiday and really not sure what to expect! However, it was brilliant our hosts Jenny and Johnny were wonderful and they went out their way to help finding a good hairdressers, where to go for a good meal really Jenny was just an adorable girl. The cottage was lovely, rooms a big size and warm which suited me as I feel the cold badly it was the beginning of October with a nip in the air. Thank you Jenny and Johnny for the warm welcome.
Mrs Mulvey
August 2018
We were surprised about how few essentials were in the cottage such as no milk jug, only 4 teaplates, 2 tea towels for a week, 1 bath and 1 hand towel each for a week, only 1 shelf in the oven and no washing machine.. The lighting was very poor and the sofas very uncomfortable. 3 of the Windows looked out into a covered shed housing a tractor. The area itself was very picturesque but very disappointed with the accommodation.

The cottage is so well located.. We also loved the walk into Pateley Bridge along the lane from the farm and then the river Nidd. Pateley is lovely too. Overall one of the happiest family holidays we have had.

The owners were on site and were very welcoming and helpful.The accomodation was very spacious and all on one level making it very easy for my 91 year old dad. Lovely to be in such a rural spot and Pateley Bridge is a very pleasant place with a good tourist information office and museum.

Barn Owl Cottage is a really lovely place, so large, clean and comfortable, very peaceful and relaxing. This was our second time there this year and look forward to going again next year. Perfect place and everyone was very friendly and helpful.
Mr Parker
June 2014
Barn Owl Cottage is beautiful, and is ideally situated to explore the beautiful Dales surrounding Pateley Bridge. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed Brimham Rocks, Fountain Abbey and Aysgarth Falls. We developed a taste for fruit cake and Wensleydale cheese from the Talbot House Hotel in Pateley, and the pies from Kendalls butchers are to die for! Just as well there are plenty of local walks!
Mr Johnstone
June 2014
We have two dogs and the property was roomy and unfussy. There was a corridor outside where dogs could be dried off and muddy boots taken off and the owner was friendly and helpful. The situation of the property was excellent. We really enjoyed our break.

Mr Coyle

We liked the area and the nearby walks. The stars were a sight for sore eyes, as there was no light pollution. We intend to rebook for spring next year when we can take advantage of the lovely area in the evening as well as the day.
December 2013
Barn owl cottage was a wonderful place to stay ,lots of lovely walks straight from the door, it was very comfortable and homely. The owners were so friendly and helpful. The area is beautiful with lots of great places to visit , fountains abbey and Brimham rocks were two of our Favourites . Pateley bridge village is a lovely mile walk away along the river , which is perfect, with plenty of good eating places. We would highly recommend this for a holiday, and as always Sykes are great to do business with.

The owner, was so friendly and welcoming. The cottage is open plan with the 2 bedrooms and 1 of the bathrooms separated. We had my 3 month old daughter, mum and 2 large dogs with us and the property was perfect for our needs! Great walks close by a large courtyard! We will definitely be going back!
Mr Russell

Good cottage, great for all areas. I would recommend to our friends. We had a very good holiday, so much to see and do. The owners were a really nice couple.
Mrs Roby

We do long distance walking, so the position of the cottage was excellent, to be able to walk from the door is brilliant. The area is a dream, the scenery is beautiful. The owners of the property were very friendly and helpful. We were very comfortable.
Mr Buckle

Mrs Dowd
July 2013
The location of the cottage was second to none. The property was in beautiful countryside but only a short pleasant walk from the nearby town which offered some fabulous places to eat and drink. There was also loads of great walks in the immediate area so you didn't need a car.
Mrs McGee
July 2013
The location of the property is fantastic. Very quiet but near to local amenities with lovely walks nearby. The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful.

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Barn Owl Cottage at Bewerley Hall Farm. It is a wonderful Cottage, with all the facilities we could have asked for. It is situated in a quiet area just outside Pateley Bridge and we felt great after our week away. Access is easy as it is all on one floor and made life easier for my Father - in - Law who has mobility problems.
Mr Wilson
