- I have free ranging ducks and hens which come into the gardens( and sometimes the house!), so dogs need to be well controlled. There is a private garden to the cottage to help.Please note that WI FI and mobile phone signal can be slow although we are looking at ways to improve WI FI. There is a charge of £30 for pets per stay.This is requested and paid after the reservation has been confirmed ,and is in addition to the reservation cost. It is requested and paid through the airbnb platform with no additional service fees.

You must also acknowledge
Amenity limitations - WI FI can be slow as we are rural and North Yorkshire is not well served.However we are looking at ways to improve this imminently.

Peaceful location and very close to Ripon and not very far from other major tourist spots of Yorkshire. The description and photos of the property on the website were accurate. Angela gave us accurate information beforehand required during our stay. The wildlife are friendly but also inquisitive so is good to be wary about.

What a beautiful place to stay. It IS as good as the reviews would have you believe! Lovely old barn conversion on a farm set amongst grazing sheep and donkeys in a very peaceful rural location. While Ripon and all the facilities you need are 5 mins away by car you would never know it. The rooms are lovely, beds very comfortable with quality linen, a wood burner and piles of logs if needed, small kitchen area but with everything you need. We went with another couple and it was spacious enough for us to have a bedroom and bathroom each, and not get on top of each other for a few days. Great scenery and countryside all around the area with lots to do within a short car journey. If you are a cyclist then the lanes are generally quiet and its easy to find some rides to meet all abilities - as long as you like hills! Highly recommended.

Gorgeous stay at the barn! Took my family for a birthday weekend and loved the stay; roomy bedrooms with one en suite and another bathroom. The area is so quiet and beautiful, would highly recommend for a tranquil weekend away!

Property doesn't live up to the great reviews. We had very little communication with the host - no contact until prompted on day of arrival and we were accidentally locked out. Property had not been properly cleaned. Wifi was useless (not something that would have mattered if the weather had been good but it rained for our whole stay so would have been nice to watch a films). Little to no information provided on things to do in the area.

Response from Angela:
I am sorry your stay didn't come up to expectation, as this is the 1st negative review in 4 years of running the cottages. I sent you directions and other information for your journey before the trip , but your arrival at 2 am ( due to your car breaking down) was understandably stressful for you especially with your new baby . Wi Fi in North Yorkshire is slow (especially rural locations like our farm), but we are looking to improve it with hard wiring in the cottage. Not much I can do about the weather I'm afraid. There is a box of local attractions plus a book of 4 years of guests comments on where to visit in the cottage. When the housekeeper went in to clean for the next guest the 2 seater settee cover was found to be soaking wet , and required cleaning and drying.Once again I am sorry that your stay was not all that you had hoped.

I live on the farm with my Husband ( retired Doctor), and we are here to help if needed , but tend to leave guests in peace , once we have introduced ourselves.
There is lots to do and see nearby and we have rented out our farm cottages for 5 years with many happy guests.
