Spent a lovely two night weekend away here with my partner recently. The Inn is very old and traditional and set in a beautiful area. Close enough to use as a base for walks in the area or to visit nearby towns and villages. Food and drink were excellent, breakfast set you up for he day. One or two areas... More

First of all we were given room 7!!. We had read reviews of the room and kind of ignored them I guess! Room 7 was clean, but the shower room/toilet was rubbish. Whilst we appreciate that the building is old, the shower might as well not have not been there!! (the tap was more powerful)Oh, and we had to share... More

Stayed here on an amazon local deal. Our room was lovely, good size with everything we needed. Shower was powerful. Tea and coffee making facilities, although these were not replenished after the first night. This is a lovely inn with a small bar and dining room and a gorgeous beer garden. The food is decent. The french rose wine was... More

Barbon Inn is a very old building and is comfortable, full of character but may lack some mod cons. This is evident via websites and reviews so we knew what to expect. Ours was a 2 night BandB through 'Amazon Local Deals'. Bedroom was fine with lots of storage space. Ample supplies of hot water, toiletries and big fluffy towels... More

Upon arrival we were shown our room by a young girl. No instructions were given, how to turn things on, where things were, what time dinner was served etc. We were not informed either that there would be a party going on beneath our room until midnight! The TV was approximatey 10-12" and the remote control very dirty, the shower... More

Had room7 in july 2014. Room was dark, roasting hot, dated, tatty and tired. Room was above kitchen so heat was unbearable but owners refused to move us to another room. Paid for 2 nights but left after one. Would never stay here again.

We have just enjoyed two night stay at The Barbon Inn near Kirby Lonsdale. It has modern facilities without losing the look and feel of its heritage. The village is small and quiet but not far from the M6 motorway. It is a good location for touring The Dales or a day out to The Lakes. The staff are very... More

Had two night stay with Amazon Local deal for B&B. Room comfy (room 8), food in the restaurant is nice and the breakfast was good although a little greasy. Set in a lovely location and the staff friendly and attentive. Have read comments about the place being dated but it is a 17th century inn - what do you expect!... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Barbon Inn and Restaurant near Kirkby Lonsdale has been around since the 1650s and started life as a farmhouse. Situated in the peaceful and tranquil village of Barbon, this country inn offers old world elegance in its accommodation restaurant and pub. The Barbon serves traditional English cuisine with a modern twist. Specialty dishes using local produce with choices like confit duck leg served with dauphinoise potatoes, sautéed leeks and a rich blackberry sauce; menu choices change with the seasons. The inn has an excellent wine list which has been a labour of love for one of the owners, and she will help you select from the connoisseurs list. The Barbon Inn has 10 bedrooms one with a four-poster bed. It’s located halfway between the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park which makes it the perfect base for exploring both. The pastoral feel is added to by a local racetrack that holds the Barbon Hill Climb. ... more   less
