Rustic barns have been completely transformed from redundant farm buildings into beautiful, comfortable four star self catering accommodation offering the traditional styling of Pennine barns, (exposed beams, oak stairs and wood burning stoves), with the modern comforts of underfloor heating, argon filled double glazing, LED lighting and green technology for the heating, rainwater harvesting and solar energy.

WiFi is available in each cottage free of charge.

Family Friendly Children are very welcome at the farm and we have high chairs and travel cots (for under 2's) and safety gates as well as a good selction of books, games, dvds and toys.  We also provide child friendly crockery and cutlery.

Nell's Cottage has two bedrooms and sleeps three in comfort. Offering breathtaking uninterupted views over open fields and accross the valley and with it's own south facing garden (with table and chairs) to sit out in, this cottage is a firm favourite!

Internally Nell's Cottage has a large Kingsize bedroom, a full size single bedroom and a good sized bathroom (with bath and Grohe shower over) upstairs. Downstairs is open plan living and, with a fully equipped kitchen, leather sofa and wall mounted TV/DVD, Nell's Cottage offers spacious and comfortable accommodation.

Underfloor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs, with high levels of insulation make Nell's Cottage snug and warm, and with a fully equipped kitchen with electric oven/hob, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine it really is a home from home!

A woodburning stove offers a focal point, and comes with a starter pack of logs.

For Nell's Cottage availability, please email us from the Contacts page.

In addition, we have a Two Bedroomed cottage, sleeping four (Jim's Barn) and a One Bedroomed cottage, sleeping two (Jenny's Cottage)

For larger parties, Jim's and Jenny's can be linked (sleeping 6 in total) by opening up a large doorway on the ground floor. This then offers offers three bedrooms, (King, double and twin), and two bathrooms, each with a bath and shower over. 

And don't worry about privacy - the wall separating the cottages is 500mm thick solid local gritstone, with the doorway having two lockable firedoors fitted.

Jim's Barn offers two bedroomed accommodation, with a double and twin room on the first floor, along with a family sized bathroom with a bath with Grohe shower over.

Downstairs there is a generous sized living space with kitchen, (including dishwasher, microwave, oven and hob), with dining and seating areas with a traditional wood burning stove. There is a large feature window offering breathtaking views down the valley, across open fields. Underfloor heating provides a comfortable environment in which to sit and relax; maybe watching the wallmounted flat screen TV/DVD after a long day out exploring the area.

Externally, there is a large south-facing patio with garden bench set.

For Jim's Barn Availability, please email us from the Contacts page.

Jenny's Cottage is ideal for couples looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, or for a romantic break together, and offers a spacious king size bedroomed accommodation with exposed beams and great views up the valley from the bedroom. A generous sized bathroom with free standing roll top bath with shower over in which to relax compliments the accommodation, making for a relaxing and refreshing experience.

Your ground floor living space has kitchen, (with microwave, oven and hob), and dining areas along with a seating area with a traditional wood burning stove. The underfloor heating provides a comfortable environment and all "mod cons" such as flat screen TV/DVD will enable a truly relaxing and comfortable stay.

Externally, there is a small outdoor seating area with a wrought iron table and chairs.

For Jenny's Cottage Availability, please email us from the Contacts page.

A good selection of books, DVDs, games and local information are available in all three cottages.

All bed linen and towels are provided.

A complimentary pack including newly laid eggs from the farm, (when available), tea, coffee, milk etc. will be waiting for you on arrival.

There is level access to the upstairs of Jim's Barn and Jenny's Cottage from the car parking area, and a newly built gently sloping cobbled drive with handrail to access the front doors and Nell's Cottage.  Each cottage has a parking space (more can be provided if required) on the dedicated cottage car park.

On site horseriding! Our farm is home to the local Riding School and offers riding lessons and hacks - literally on your doorstep! Feel free to book in advance along with your accommodation or book when you arrive. Our guests receive a discount.

Locally there is so much to see and do! See the Local Info page for more details.

Environmentally friendly: Both cottages benefit from state of the art environmentally friendly features such as:

  • Ground Source Heat Pump  which provides the heating and hot water.
  • Solar PV is installed and provides up to 18.5KWatts of power to the farm.
  • Rainwater harvesting means that the washing machines and toilets reuse water from the skies.
  • Underfloor Heating provides a comfortable constant temperature, and not only is environmentally sound, but creates a healthy environment especially for asthma sufferers.  
  • We have recently received a 'Silver' Trip Advisor Award for our green credentials, of which we are very proud.

                      We are non-smoking and sorry, we can't accept pets.

Externally there are rockeries and garden areas. Nell's Cottage has it's own south facing garden with a table and chairs.
