Holiday home

The cottage can sleep up to six people in three ground floor bedrooms - one super king-size double with en-suite (shower, heated towel rail, basin and WC), one single, which can be a king-size double on request with the use of an additional 2'6" pull-out bed and one super king-size double (zip and link bed), which can be a twin on request.

In an 'upside down' style, the living accommodation is on the first floor and includes a kitchen with dining area, a sitting room with woodburning stove and a hallway.

A lovely charming cottage. The cottage had a lovely ambiance, and it's very private especially the garden which is a great sun trap. There is a designated space to park for one car and plenty of car parking availability a few steps away. There were fab walks on the doorstep.

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.

The cottage was only a short walk into Skipton so we didn't need to drive all of the time. Quiet, pretty countryside and central to lots of tourist attractions.

We enjoyed the rural location but also appreciated its proximity to Skipton and the walk into town along the canal tow path. The cottage is spacious and very well furnished; the upside-down layout makes the most of the views. An ideal base for enjoying the glorious Yorkshire Dales.

A lovely barn conversion, it was spacious and warm with glorious views. The cottage is well placed for visiting lots of places in the Dales and very close to Skipton.

The Barn is light and airy and was comfortably warm when we put on the heating on frosty nights. We were also very fortunate in having chosen a week when the weather was superb for the time of year. The owner was most friendly and helpful.

It was a fantastically positioned cottage; a pleasant walk along a canal tow path to the town, the station and 2 supermarkets. Or easy access to roads leading all over Yorkshire and further. It is part of a working farm so eggs available and the farmer's wife was friendly and helpful. There were views from the windows of the lovely Yorkshire countryside. I would recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic property in an excellent location. Niffany Barn offers real home comforts, fantastic views all within a real working farm. As a bonus the centre of the bustling town of Skipton is only 20 minutes stroll away along the canal, or a few minutes drive down the road.

The cottage was spotless, and the bedrooms were large with a lovely en-suite in the master bedroom. The kitchen was very well equipped, with plenty of pans, crockery etc. Would definitely stay again!

The property was comfortable and very well equipped with everything you could want for a very comfortable stay. Love the quietness as it is the only holiday property on the farm.

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.

This property was ideally situated for touring all areas of the Dales National Park as well as being close to Skipton for all shopping needs and restaurants etc. Although on a main road it was very peaceful and the walks from the door were lovely.

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.

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.

No complaints of any kind! Very clean, well equipped, pleasant landlady, fabulous views and so on. Close to my ancestral home.

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!

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.
