“Kaz217 "First Class Accommodation"”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Barker Stakes Farm with 2 friends. Perfectly situated just outside Pickering. Easy access to Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. Accommodation is of the highest standard - exceptionally equipped and comfortable. We had our own decking area with table and chairs. Sarah and Steve are the perfect hosts and provide an excellent breakfast. Have no hesitation in recommending this as the perfect accommodation, with rooms and cabins in various combinations to suit everyone.

Spent a wonderful weekend at Barker Stakes Farm with two friends. We wanted somewhere to stay within easy reach of Robin Hoods Bay and couldn't believe our luck in finding this absolute gem! The welcome we received from Steve and Sarah was so warm, friendly and helpful. The accommodation and facilities just perfect. Our room was very well equipped and so clean and comfortable. We had French Windows from our room to a lovely decked area where we could sit and have a drink. Breakfast in the Conservatory was superb - a lovely, bright room with great views. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Room Tip: I would guess all rooms here are lovely.

A beautiful location in the countryside! Thank you to Sarah and Steve for a really lovely weekend at Barker Stakes Farm. We have two Border Collies who stayed at the farm with my wife and I and they were also made very welcome. The breakfasts were delicious! Lots of room to walk and for our dogs to run. Brilliant hosts!...... We will be back! :-)

I spent days scrolling through the internet trying to find the perfect hotel to accompany a surprise birthday trip away for my boyfriend and was trilled to find barker stakes farm. It looked perfect and had amazing reviews. When we arrived it looked even prettier in the flesh than photos online! Our little cabin was gorgeous and had everything we needed. The little added touches and thought put into this place just made the whole experience. We planned to visit Scarborough later in the day for something to do but didn't because there was more than enough lovely things to do on the farm! We had the friendliest of farm Yard animals right outside our cabin that we instantly made friends with, a 20 second walk away was a pool table, table football and ping pong set up. There was a range of DVDs to borrow and the country side views were superb. We had an amazing view of the sunset from our cabin. Steve was a fantastic host and a pleasure to talk to. Breakfast was lovely and we couldn't have asked for any better! We went to flamingo land the next day which was a 10 minute drive from the farm, but we were very saddened to leave and can't wait to plan another visit soon! For the price you just won't get a better room/location/service/experience anywhere else! This is my first review as I have never been so impressed with a place before that I felt the need to spend precious time writing one! But with barker stakes farm I just had to because it truly deserves all the praise it receives and I recommend it highly :)

We decided to visit Flamingo land and wanted to stay somewhere close to make a weekend of it. A quick search of the internet came back with Barker Stakes farm. The farm was ideally located for our visit and not one you would fall across given its location. We stayed in a family room which was of a very high standard. The room had the usual tea & coffee as well as a fridge. The room was very clean and modern. The owners were very friendly and hospitable. The farm also has a number of static lodges and has a play area which is very useful if you have kids. The location is perfect for a peaceful break and a good location for exploration into North Yorkshire. The breakfast was of excellent quality and just the thing to set you up for the day. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area!

We recently rented the loft for 2 nights which was very clean and the beds were very comfortable and so lovely and quiet being quite away from roads etc. Each room has its own tv with dvd player so the children loved looking through the huge selection on dvds at reception to take to the loft. They also liked the outdoor play area where there is a see saw swings and table games to play with and looks like there is more to come with climbing frame not quite finished.
Breakfast was lovely as were the hosts nothing was too much trouble even accommodating the children with their picky needs. Would definitely recommend and would loved too go back !!

Booked this for a family weekend get together and it was perfect. Lovely location with lots of things to do nearby.

We rented the loft and a couple of rooms - all decorated and equipped to a very high standard. Sarah and Steve were really good hosts and very helpful.

Breakfast was lovely and served in the conservatory.

No hesitation in recommending this place - ideal spot for exploring the North Yorkshire Moors and surrounding areas.

Will definitely stay here again.
