We stayed at this property last year and were very pleased, exactly what we wanted. We returned this year,and haven't changed our opinion.

Nice cottage. Lovely welcome pack. Perfect base for visiting Ripon, Harrogate and local villages. Great wee garden for our dog. Track leading to house needs some attention . Disappointed no facilities for recycling yet.

The Hay Barn offers first class accommodation. The owners provided a much appreciated welcome basket on arrival, the accommodation is very spacious, cosy, spotlessly clean and warm. Despite having a very wet week, we enjoyed exploring the beautiful location.

Lovely setting, great facilities, recommend it without hesitation. Great if you have a dog. Toasty warm thanks to underfloor heating & wood burner.

A lovely, quiet location just outside the village but still with access to the Nidderdale AONB and surrounding area. The kitchen/dining space and separate lounge provided ample space for our party of four and the welcome pack was appreciated. The enclosed garden was a useful space to allow our dog access to the outdoors without the need to be on constant watch. One area for consideration may be better provision for recycling of glass/plastics etc. as it was unclear how this was to be achieved currently. Overall a very restful and enjoyable week was had by all.

Beautiful cottage, spotless, well-equipped, very spacious and excellent value for money. We really appreciated the very generous welcome basket. Lovely spot with easy access to walks, local towns and villages. Thoroughly recommend.

We have loved our stay here, just what we needed - very quiet location. Front garden was very secure for our dog and also very private for us. We brought our garden chairs so we could recline outside in the sun which was very relaxing! There is garden seating at a picnic table but if you want to relax bringing chairs is a good idea! Inside is very comfortable, nice to relax in evening and kitchen well equipped, good space for eating and cooking. Hosts were great, helpful and also non-intrusive which we like! And they left us a welcome pack which was lovely with essentials and some treats :) Area is quiet, masham was only 10 min drive though with supermarket and petrol. Lots of walking in the area its a de auto fill place and lots to visit.

What a gem of a find. This cottage is just outside the village of Grewelthorpe within an hour of everywhere you would want to go like Harrogate, Fountains Abbey, Grassington, Aysgarth Falls, Bedale, etc.
The cottage has all the usual amenities but also gave you plenty of room in the good sized kitchen and living room. Lovely big rain shower and spacious bedrooms including one on the ground floor should you need it. There was a lovely garden which we and our dogs enjoyed and fantastic views over the fields with the lambs, chickens and ducks roaming around.
We will definitely return, it was great.
