“A Wonderful Holiday Let”
Reviewed October 26, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Niffany Barn is situated on a working farm next to the Leeds Liverpool Canal. The property is new and well furnished. It is well equipped and the owners are pleasant and helpful. the property allows holidaymakers to take their pets. The lounge has a multi-fuel stove which makes the room warm and cosy. The heating system is efficient and keeps the property warm. It is an ideal spot for a holiday in the Yorkshire Dales.

“Perfect location for the Dales”
Reviewed September 21, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

Clean, comfortable and welcoming. The barn is on a working farm next to the Leeds & Liverpool canal. The walk into Skipton (30 mins) along the towpath is picturesque and interesting. The property has the bedrooms on the ground floor with the large lounge and kitchen / dining room upstairs, which might deter the infirm. Strong wi-fi signal. Niffany Barn is close to the Skipton by-pass which makes it ideal for exploring the Dales without having to drive through the town.

“Fantastic holiday cottage”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Niffany Barn is a great place to stay - the accommodation is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped (even a tea cosy!) with magical views of the canal and surrounding countryside. We particularly appreciated the milk in the fridge when we arrived so we could have a cup of tea before venturing out to the supermarket, the lazyboy sofas and armchair and the very comfortable mattresses. The location is also good - 15-20 minutes walk along the towpath into Skipton meant that we could leave the car behind on a couple of days when we went to Skipton Castle and woods and when we got the train to Saltaire and Leeds. Easy access to lots of interesting walks and the Dales. Only slight downside was that only two of us could use wifi at one time and wifi on laptop seemed very slow.

“Superb addition to a fabulous weekend”
Reviewed November 16, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I booked Niffany Barn for three nights to stay in the region for our son's wedding celebrations. The Barn is absolutely superb, bigger than the photos make it look. The beds were comfortable and the lounge was made to lounge around! We had intended going out and about, but we didnt, we stayed in (when we werent at the wedding etc)
I would thoroughly recommend Niffany Barn both for the accommodation but also the friendliness and approachability of the owners. They allowed us to stay in their lovely cottage and just relax. We felt secure even when the house was unlocked. We had no need to worry about anything.
Waking to the sound of the cows was an added bonus!

“We will be back!!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

This lovely idyllic cottage was perfect for us in the town of Skipton. The 3 bedroomed cottage was very well maintained and was exceptional fully equipped. We stayed for a weekend in November and the weather was fabulous. We arrived on the Friday night to be greeted by Jennette who explained where everything was and we even phoned for directions as there was a diversion on the road which was no trouble for her.

We had a brilliant first evening playing the games that were in the cupboard and sitting in front of roaring log fire. It was so quiet we all over slept on the Saturday but who needs to pop to the shops for breakfast when you can pop to the small out house and buy via the honesty box fresh eggs that had been laid that morning!!

The cottage was immaculately clean, very well presented and full of local information of things to do, places to see and eat if you didn't fancy cooking in the well equipped kitchen. There was even a phone number for a baby sitting service. We enjoyed a trip on a barge down the canal and also trip to Bolton Abbey during our stay. Both we found out about from the information in the cottage.

There is a couple of large supermarkets a 5 minute drive away and the center of Skipton which includes a market and the Castle. The views are amazing we watched the barges up and down the canal.

All in all we couldn't have asked for a more warm welcome and a beautiful clean very well equipped cottage. We are booking next year in the spring so that we can see the new born lambs and enjoy the BBQ that is outside.

“Well equiped canalside accommodation with scenic views and easy access to Skipton”
Reviewed May 17, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

person found this review helpful

6 of us, 3 couples stayed at Niffany Barn. The newly decorated and furnished property was well equipped with lovely views of the local countryside from the upstairs living room and kitchen. It was fascinatng watching boats sailing past and lambs playing in the adjacent fields. Being on an active farm adds character and interest to the stay .
Walks along the canal towpath allow attractive views of the countryside. Skipton with its shops and markets is a few minutes drive or a brisk 20 minute walk along the towpath. We were lucky to be there when the canal festval was on - great fun. There are lots of places to eat in Skipton and plenty of places to visit in the area.
