The cottage was absolutely beautiful, as was the surrounding area- could not fault the amenities. The space in the cottage was very well thought out, cosy, comfortable and cute. Lovely little gifts left which we enjoyed and the bath was great! Only problems were that there was extremely loud and disruptive building work going on in the garden attached to the cottage from 8am which we were not informed of. This obviously woke us up, was not peaceful and the huge crain over the house was a little off putting on arrival. The owner was very apologetic and offered us a generous discount given the circumstances, for which we were very grateful. Pans in the kitchen were provided but some were very greasy? Thank you for a lovely stay, would be more than happy to return in the future.
We were looking for a weekend break for our 23rd wedding anniversary around Kirkby Stephen and when we saw this one the decision was easy. Quaint, unusual, four-poster, great bath position... Well, the reality is even better. Didn't need the log burner as it was so mild (bit of a shame) but, yes, the gowns and slippers are a great touch as are the items in the fridge. Bed excellent, bath excellent, shower excellent, kitchen area excellent, parking excellent, Hey, we couldn't find fault with it at all. Would be happy to return in the future.
Stayed here for a long weekend courtesy of our daughters , and one of their boyfriends... from the moment we opened the door , it was WOW !!!
The place just oozes character , charm and coziness
Beautiful scenery on your doorstep , red squirrels, little mouse in the wall and birds galore.
The bath in the bedroom was amazing , so much imagination has gone into this place.
Very very quirky , would love to return in summer!
A visit to the Tan Hill pub is a must , such a remote place , Kirkby Stephen was a welcome surprise , good range of shops etc .
Would thoroughly recommend a stay at the cow byre .
Have had lovely week away at this beautiful cottage! Waking up to those beautiful views every morning was a real treat!
Is great area for both the yorkshire dales and for visiting the lakes. Not far from main roads. In peaceful area and views overlooking the dales.
All the facilities you could want really, the roll top bath being the highlight! The log burner was also great and the bed very comfortable. Kitchen could maybe do with extra shelve or something for storing food otherwise can not fault it!
Walking- Ingelton Falls (South Yorkshire Dales), Aira Force (Ullswater)
Local Food- Mango Tree Indian (Kirkby Stephen)
Places- Scar White Cave (Ingelton), Appleby Spa Hotel (Appleby), Mountain Biking (Grizdale).
Thankyou for a lovely stay and the little treats left for us on arrival was a lovely touch will recommend to family and friends :)
Just way too lovely! Cannot describe this location! The guest house feels more like 5star hotel! I feel like buying the place forever, so I can come by whenever I like. The home owner as given everything a couple could need to make this stay most comfortable! The homeowner gave us very warm hospitality. AMAZING is all I can say! I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a honeymoon or just getaway from busy city life.
My wife and i had a lovely time in the cow Byrne for our honeymoon,the owners are lovely and make you feel very welcome in there lovely cottage,of what they built together from scratch they have done a marvellous job, i would recommend this place to friends and family.
