We arrived just after 3pm at Batty Barn on a cold day with traces of snow still evident in the fields. The heating was on and the cottage was very warm on entering clean and beautiful perfect for a short break. With eggs left for us and a nice bowl of fruit also shampoo shower gels hand pump soaps & fairy liquid and dishwasher tablets it was a good start to a mini break.
The following morning I took my 11 year old son to look at the cows and calves close up the farmer was through the other side and waved. He took the time to walk round and take us to the other side of the barn where twin calves had been born two days previously this made my sons day. Later that morning we saw the farmers wife who waved and there dog who came and sat by our son leaning against him for a stroke and would have been content to sit there all day being fussed over.
The conservatory might not be as warm as one wanted on initially entering it with just the central heating however but the owners have anticipated this there is also an electric oil filled one so you won't be cold.
The eggs left for us we had at breakfast and they were the best eggs we have ever had. Friendly owners lovely cottage wifi isn't the fastest but it's rural location with amazing views ? The odd loud moo of a cow had us laughing lovely location and lovely owners.
Lovely cottage, perfectly equipped and very cosy. Being December it was very chilly outside but the cottage was really warm and inviting. Dog friendly which was great as out Lola really enjoyed it.Fresh eggs on the doorstep was a bonus. Would highly recommend. Kitchen was very well equipped with all the things you need
Yet again another wonderful break at Batty Barn. Perfect, peaceful surroundings. Wonderful hosts. We can't wait to come back. Thankyou for a great getaway.
We stayed here for a few days over Christmas and it was a lovely getaway. A nice touch was the xmas tree that was put up. A lovely place to stay, the barn has everything you would need and its very homely.
Close to scarborough and Whitby and also robin hoods bay.
Would recommend for anyone who wants a peaceful break. Would stay again but for longer next time.
Thanks for a lovely stay.
What a great place. My partner, my two daughters and myself had a great time staying here in Batty Barn. A lovely cottage in a beautiful location and friendly, helpful owners to boot. I almost wanted to keep quiet about it and make it our little secret but it just wouldn't be fair. Thanks for a wonderful break.
Stayed here for 3 nights over Xmas and loved it. A Christmas tree had been put in which was a nice touch. The area is very peaceful and scenic. Excellent amenities available. Close to Scarborough, Whitby and robin hoods bay for nice days out at the seaside. Would definitely recommend and the only thing I would do differently is stay for longer next time! Thanks for a fab Xmas getaway :)
What a lovely cottage, everything that you could possibly need for a week away, very well equipped. We only wish that we had booked a second week. The best bed that we had slept in on holiday.
