Really romantic especially the hot tub. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Will definitely be returning. Paula and Jason are lovely. Will highly recommend.

“Amazing value for money”

The cottage was everything we wanted it to be, it was very clean, newly redecorated, peaceful and the scenery is amazing. Also the owners were very helpful and friendly.

The hot tub was our favourite part of the cottage, we enjoyed lighting it and getting it to temperature, even though it took a few attempts we soon got the hang of it. It is definitely worth using because sitting in the hot tub and looking out across the fields is amazing!

I'm not sure why other reviewers have had issues because for the price we paid it was perfect. We will definitely be back.

“Not a good experience”

Unfortunately there was not a lot to impress us other than the beautiful countryside and lovely local amenities.

The cottage was not as the pictures shown the furniture was different.

On entry the smell of damp, dog and tobacco was acrid, we were disappointed to note there was no welcome pack for a coffee and milk. We arrived late at night and just a coffee before we got into bed would have gone a long way.

The sofa was just awful and very different from the one shown. The fire different from the one shown.

Simple things like the knifes were also blunt we couldn't even cut bread were just not good.

More seriously there appeared to be a problem with the water pressure and the constant noise from animals (we presume) in the loft was a distraction. We had a four poster bed, we didn't really want to sit on the settee but to sit down and relax and watch a film one of the four posts obscured the tv from the bed.

I thing on top of this seeing all the rodent deterrents didn't do a lot for us after hearing all the scratting in the roof. We saw no evidence of rodent infestation to be clear.

All in all we were quite disappointed, perhaps our expectations were too high but this is the worst review I have given on trip advisor I think

“pet friendly property appraisal”

My husband and I stayed at the Dairy cottage number 3 in Barforth, with our son and daughter in law there for 2 nights. On arrival we discovered the place had been left in the 1950's, apart from the fridge and the kettle; there were no complimentary items. We had one toilet roll, already started for technically 4 of us, somebody else's cleaning pad to wash up with, towels that looked like they were years and years old, and there were broken bits of clothes pegs littered in amongst the gravel outside, which for a pet friendly place was not acceptable. The grass had been rough cut once a mower width leaving the sides and edges long and straggly, and a pond had been quickly covered over with rough ended uneven sized planks of wood, which hurt and scratched when walked against. My puppy lost a toy under one of the settees; the mess underneath was disgusting, and the fly epidemic didn't help the whole situation. Broken light fittings off the fence tops were in the gravel too, and there was no privacy from the adjoining place, as the fence was only 3 foot high if that. The only thing going for the place was the space to move in.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 20, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

My boyfriend booked us a weekend away in April at Barforth Hall Cottage for our anniversary and we had a fantastic time. The cottage was easy to find the with instructions given by Sykes and it was in a beautiful and peaceful location. The cottage was clean and cosy with lovely views to wake up to. We used the hot tub each night and we found it really easy to light and to keep going. It took about 4 hours the first night but by the third it was hot within 40 minutes. Couldn't fault this holiday at all and can't wait to return.
