“Nice barn conversion but at the side of a noisy road”
Reviewed October 30, 2014 for a stay in October 2014
2
people found this review helpful

This was a nice conversion, very comfortable, well equipped, and with a very friendly welcome. The showers were good, though the en-site shower room very cosy! The beds comfy and the kitchen well stocked. Excellent food and pubs around and in a good place for touring the area.
The downside is the proximity to a fairly busy road, very busy at weekends, which surprised us since the road on the map looks quite quiet. The noise into the kitchen/sitting area is obvious despite double glazing. The bedrooms are furthest away so less of an issue. Some may not see this as an issue, not mentioned before on previous reviews, so just a reflection that we all had. I would recommend but only with a caution on the location.
The only other comment is that there was no landline and mobile reception was awful/ non existent; worrying in case of an emergency.

“A Home away from Home”
Reviewed October 4, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We arrived at this cottage to discover it was everything that was advertised. We were welcomed by the friendly owners. No details were left untouched. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything that you would need. The cottage was clean with a nice modern decor from bedding and luxurious walk in showers. The location was ideally situated close to all amenities and major routes to other areas in North Yorkshire. Just a short drive to York and the train station to whisk you away to other destinations. It was truly a home away from home and will recommend this location to friends and families!

“Perfect cottage in an ideal location.”

Barn Owl Cottage is in the ideal location for visiting all areas of Yorkshire with fantastic views and stunning scenery. The cottage is spacious, spotlessly clean, well-equipped and the attention to detail in every room is outstanding. We loved the wood burner, wi-fi, comfy beds, exhilarating showers and the extensive library of information. This is truly a five star accommodation which we would highly recommend.

“Wonderful base in beautiful countryside”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

What a find. The cottage was so comfortable and warm, decor excellent and it was very well equipped. We loved being close enough to visit York but in the countryside, we came away feeling very refreshed and relaxed. Lovely walking in the area. We hope to visit again soon and will recommend to our friends.

“Excellent in all aspects!!!!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Booked mid February for celebratIng our 11th Wedding Anniversary, chosen as a result of the location, but also the marketed pictures and facilities! On arrival, nothing disappointed! All facilities, from the kitchen, to the log burner, to the powerful walk in showers and the very comfy bed were as expected and more!
For me, a chance to revisit the places in North and East Yorkshire where I have many happy childhood holiday memories. The location was a great base to visit loads of places from.
Thank you, we will recommend.

“Absolutely lovely place to stay - perfect!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

What an honour to be the first family to stay in the beautiful, comfy and cosy Barn Owl Cottage. Thank you for being so amazingly welcoming and helpful. We have walked the York Walls, visited a cold war bunker, been on the beach in Staithes, had fish and chips at Whitby, enjoyed the railway museum and visited beautiful Easingwold, all whilst celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Hopefully we’ll be back soon
