very nice owners, who live to one side of the barn, left us scones and milk and eggs, a loaf of home baked bread on our arrival. Very comfortable barn, extremely quiet, though is a good way from civilisation - masham - which was perfect for us, but may be too isolated for others. March in Yorkshire is as you might expect, chilly, changable, rainy at times, even some snow for a short time. York is not far and worth a visit, Harrogate is lovely, and we spent a delightful time in a country hotel outside Whitby - do go to the Magpie fish restaurant - lovely food and great atmosphere. We really enjoyed our time in North Yorkshire, though we did visit friends making it even more special.
