The cottage was excellent in every respect, with great consideration to what guests might require. The owners were great, friendly and helpful, and even lent my husband a tie when he realised he had forgotten one.

I can not recommend The Byre, highly enough, as previous reviewers have stated I've stayed in many throughout the UK and this was by far the best, the owners live next door and are so friendly. A fabulous welcome pack awaited me on arrival, in addition there was fruit, milk, bread, butter and fabulous eggs from the very free range chickens that wander around! The fabulous utility room which isn't photographed, is a god send if you're traveling with a dog, it's huge and very well equipped. The whole place was absolutely spotless, and a real home from home with high quality furnishings and so much space. The photographs really don't do it justice. It's in such a peaceful location, on a very quiet lane, and the most noise all week was from the cockerel! I will most definitely return to The Byre, I shall be booking in again soon.

We loved our stay at The Byre, it is located on the outskirts of a small village which has a shop/post office and pub. The cottage was really well equipped with everything needed to make our stay a fantastic one. There are plenty of options for dog walks and also access to the owner's fields for the dogs to have a run around. We thoroughly enjoyed our break and would highly recommend a stay here.

Beautifully furnished and spacious accommodation with very friendly and helpful hosts. In a super village with good amenities. A great base for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors.

Having stayed in holiday cottages all over the country, I am delighted to say that The Byre was by far the best. The photographs on your website don't do it justice! The place is spacious, extremely comfortable and has an air of quality about it. The cottage is very well equipped in all areas, providing many extras that other cottages just don't have. On arrival it was also impeccably clean tidy. As well as providing a luxurious environment, it is essentially practical for dog owners with a spacious utility room. The owner was both friendly and welcoming, she must be commended on providing such a beautiful holiday home. Her attention to detail is second to none. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Byre and will definitely be visiting again soon.
