Barnbrook description

Holiday home
Barnbrook is a semi detached, stone built detached cottage located on the edge of the village of Carperby, close to the Aysgarth Falls in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This cottage sleeps five people in two bedrooms, consisting of one king size bed and one family room with twin beds and sofa bed as well as a family bathroom. The cottage also has a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room. To the outside of this cottage, there is a small garden and patio, plus off road parking for two cars. Barnbrook is a wonderful family cottage, in an area of stunning countryside.

Situated close to well-known Aysgarth Falls and the impressive Bolton Castle - which dates back to 1379 – the idyllic Wensleydale village of Carperby is set within excellent walking country. During the 17th Century this charming little town was an important centre for Quakerism. Today, the largest building in the village is still the classically styled Friends Meeting House, which overlooks the market cross and village green. There is also a pub serving good food as well as an excellent range of amenities in the nearby market town of Leyburn. The villages of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale are both easily accessible from Carperby and make for lovely days out whilst the surrounding countryside provides a wealth of walking and cycling paths amidst the charming scenery. Visitors can also enjoy excellent bird watching in the area.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

We have holidayed in Yorkshire for over 40 years and this was the best cottage we have had. We enjoyed the local walks; the property was close to places we wanted to visit and near to amenities. There was plenty of room for parking at cottage. We found Dent to be a charming place with cobbled streets and loads of history Beautiful drive and friendly people.

A nice, warm, clean, peaceful, well equipped cottage located in excellent walking country - there were easy walks to waterfalls and rocky places which the children enjoyed too. We got very muddy and were glad of the washing machine and dryer.

Barnbrook truly is the perfect cosy cottage to escape to! It's in a fantastic location as a base to explore the Dale's and the cottage itself is fantastic! It accommodated myself, my husband and my 2 children with ample space! The kitchen is huge and has everything you need, the lounge is comfy, cosy and warm. The bedrooms are also fantastic, with loads of storage and space! Would highly recommend a stay at Barnbrook and we will definitely be returning!

We enjoyed our stay at Barnbrook. The cottage was cosy and warm when we arrived. The kitchen/dining area was huge! It was useful to have a separate toilet downstairs. The cottage was well equipped and the beds were comfortable. It was nice to have books and games provided and there was lots of information about things to do and walking routes. The surrounding area is lovely and we enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place. We can recommend the Wheatsheaf Hotel for a meal. We thought the price was reasonable for staying over New Year.

The cottage setting was lovely. It was pretty to look at and homely and comfortable inside. I think we had everything we needed. In fact we feel it's a cottage we would like to revisit next year unless we decide to explore another area with another of your cottages. Booking and payment were simple and everything ran really smoothly.

The property was good for children and adults alike. We didn't need to use the car to go on lots of lovely long walks to Castle Bolton and Aysgarth falls.

There were also great views of the landscape - all together a lovely relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings!

An outstanding cottage set in an outstanding area of the dales. Try the Wheatsheaf hotel in Carperby and the Bolton Arms in Redmire for a friendly welcome and excellent food.
Miss Chintock
April 2005
We immediately felt comfortable and relaxed in this very cosy cottage. Barnbrook is a home away from home. We loved every minute of it, even when we were stuck inside due to rain and fog, which was mostly down to the well stocked cottage of books, games, videos (even a blank video for die hard tv fans not wanting to miss their favorite show). It is located in a wonderful position to see many of the main sites of the dales and has a very friendly local 3 minutes down the road. Highly recommend this proprty to anyone and would love to go back for longer.
Mr Farries
October 2005

August 2011
Had a great week in the cottage. Friendly & helpfull people in the area. Heating system slightly confusing.
October 2011
Barnbrook was in a lovely part of the country. The only problem we had with the house was trying to dispose of our rubbish. Otherwise all was very successful. Lots of things to do for adults as well as children. The castle was a great success, as was the cheese!
December 2009
The brochure description was good and the price fair. We always look for cottages with parking and that do not take pets as we have had problems years ago. The cottage was in the a small village with a good pub/restaurant but unfortunately no shop, knowing this from the information provided prior to travel we went prepared. The very pleasant sounding owner provided us with sufficent information on the locality and access to the property. The cottage was beyond our expectations and provided nearly enough amenities that we could easily had lived there for a lengthy period of time. The large kitchen diner was just what we were after. We loved the location, also the fact that we did not necessarily have to take the car out to find good walks and we did a few from the house itself. We took a few drives also and just loved everything the places, and the people. When we were doing our Leyburn Shawl walk we had come off the short stretch of main road we had to use when going down a lane which would eventually take us to the Hall and Wensley village a farmer and his wife stopped their vehicle and had a chat to us. How good is that? The peace and tranquility was lovely and as you have asked for a downside -there was no view from the living area and only one small window in the lounge, but hey I've only mentioned that because you asked! We will certainly return.

Peaceful country retreat,just what we were looking for. We loved the area, have been there many times. Lots of walking..Malham Cove, Ingleton Waterfalls walk, etc. Local pubs serve good food, especially The George at Thoralby and The Old Horn at Swinithwaite.
December 2009
The Cottage was very clean ,Had every thing in the kitchen that you needed had a good selection of Pamphlets to help us plan our days out plenty of games for children to do at night Only drawback cost of meals at local
July 2010
We were expecting a quiet retreat but it was quite noisy. Impossible to relax with windows open in the extreme heat of the evening as next door neighbours were relaxing outside the window and children running on the gravel roadway, from front to back of house playing. A car was then parked in the main drive with it's radio on, which we felt was inconsiderate. The parking was very tight and quite difficult with the outside layout shared, manoevering to exit caused a chip on car from the rough wall, we constantly felt we may be trapped in our space by the number of vehicles sharing the parking spaces. The decor was drab and depressing and we felt it could all do with updating. There was no full-length mirror. However, we felt the kitchen area was spacious and light and we spent most of our week in this room.
