Our cosy barn conversion is the perfect base for you to explore the outstanding natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales.

The space

The Barn was beautifully converted in the mid 2000s with traditional stone, slate and oak throughout the property. The downstairs comprises a large open plan living area with two comfy sofas and a log burning fire, a modern kitchen with an electric range cooker, fridge freezer, coffee machine and breakfast bar opening to a large dining area. To the rear of the house there is access to a utility room with sink, washing machine and a downstairs w/c - and of course plenty of space to hang your outdoor gear and any muddy boots! Additionally there is a small south-facing garden patio area to the front.

Taking the oak staircase upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and one bedroom with two single beds. The bathroom has a full size bath and separate shower area. There is extra space to hang clothes or use for storage on the upstairs landing area which are guests are more than welcome to use.

Guest access

We want you to feel totally at home during your stay and all areas of the barn are open for you. We will provide a welcome basket with local produce and essentials like milk, tea and coffee to help you get settled in. Please feel free to use our coffee machine for your morning espresso before the big hike!

The cupboards are well stocked with spices and other sundries - our guests are welcome to use these - all we ask is that you replace anything that runs out.

Please let us know when you book if you are bringing bicycles or other large equipment with you. We would be happy to provide a key to the garage where your gear can be stored securely for your peace of mind.

Interaction with guests

Although we live in Manchester we are always at the end of a phone and we will endeavour to do everything we can to make sure that your holiday goes without a hitch.

Other things to note

The Barn has WiFi, a digital radio, TV (Freeview) and a DVD player.

We had a lovely week in this property in August 2017 with 2 adults, 2 ten year olds and 2 seven year olds. The property was clean and well equipped with everything we needed including dishwasher, microwave, good wifi, comfy sofas and beds, and all the kitchen equipment you could ask for. All the rooms were beautifully decorated - it was hard trying to decide which was the nicest room. The property was just as described and the photos are a true representation. When I booked this holiday I wanted a cottage that was nicer than my own home and this exceeded all expectations. We ate in the village pub twice, both times having very delicious meals and a warm welcome. I would happily recommend this property to friends and family as a great place to explore the Dales. Communication with the owner from booking, pre arrival and during our stay was excellent.

I booked this for a small family get-together with all ages from 2 to 75 and it really was perfect for everyone. It's a homely, cosy place, beautifully furnished and amazingly located for walks and exploration of the dales. Thanks a lot Sean.

The perfect home away from home! Couldn't ask for anything more - The Barn is beautifully furnished, incredibly comfortable, in an idyllic location with a wonderful host. Can't fault a thing! Absolutely loved our three night stay here, I only wish we lived a little closer so we could make it a regular event!

This was our first stay in accommodation using AirBnb. We knew from reviews that we would really enjoy our stay here, but this surpassed expectations. The 'barn' is perfectly sized, with ample space yet a very homely feel. It is very well and tastefully furnished without feeling cluttered. Everything just works as it should. We were lucky with some sunshine to enjoy the beautiful region where this is situated (e.g. a 5 mile round-trip walk to nearby Settle, a lovely day visiting nearby Malham cove and Janet's Foss). However, we had the feeling this would be a great place to settle even in more adverse weather. The log fire was a treat for our two children, and gave the place an almost Christmassy feeling in the cooler summer evenings. Stainforth is a very well kept, quiet and picturesque village, and we were happy enough just to walk the local lanes. Settle provides a range of supermarkets / restaurants / pubs and is only 2.5 miles away. All in all, this makes for a great holiday and we would highly recommend staying here - the more nights the better (we stayed for five)!

This is a really lovely house, comfortable and spacious with everything you need. It's one of the nicest places we've stayed and in one of the loveliest settings. The village is peaceful and pretty with lots of fantastic walking and cycling around, and the house was the perfect base for exploring. Sean was friendly and helpful and responded quickly to all my messages to him. We'd love to come again.

Sean provided a wonderful home from home to host a get together for friends. The barn is done to a high standard and is in a lovely setting, perfect if you are wanting a country retreat. It is with close distance of Settle, which has some lovely shops and restaurants. The suprise hamper on arrival was a lovely touch greatly enjoyed. Thank you!
