Converted barn in heart of Burnsall, view of village green, river Wharf & Fells



Updated: 15-Nov-2016
Barn in Burnsall, Wharfedale, Yorkshire Dales, England - Close to Dalesway and other riverside walks. Walking distance to excellent village pub and shop.

A very attractive and characterful converted stone barn right in the heart of Burnsall which is one of the most popular villages in the Yorkshire Dales.

There are stunning views from the barn of the village green with the fells beyond. Only 100m metres from the excellent village pub (The Red Lion) and riverside walks which form part of the Dalesway long distance footpath.

Burnsall has a small village shop, cafe and ice-cream kiosk for the essentials.

There is an attractive village green and across the river there is a gravel beach where the family can play in the shallow river and BBQ all day for a nominal charge.

About the Owner

We are a family of five with one well behaved Golden Retriever called Alfie which we occasionally take for summer holidays. We visit Burnsall regularly and love the setting close to amenities but with glorious views, walks and pubs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is newly on the rental market although we have owned the barn for over 7 years. Many of our friends and family have used it and thoroughly enjoyed their stay.

Fabulous cottage!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at the cottage over the Christmas week! It has everything you could ever ask for. There was 6 of us and we were never on top of each other (so 8 would be great too!). The location is perfect with stunning views! I fell in love with Burnsall and can't wait to go back again! Jeremy was very helpful leading up to our stay and answered all our questions and very kindly made recommendations etc! such as the Red Lion for Christmas Day! amazing!! :) Wonderful and comfy beds, lovely big bathroom (only one shower, 2 toilets), I would highly recommend this cottage!

Thanks again!

Burnsall BArn

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us enjoyed a long week-end in this delightful barn conversion. The accomodation was as described and was clean and well equipped with everything we required.

The location, both in terms of the village and the wider surroundings, is lovely and provides something for everyone.

Jeremy, the owner, was very helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to reommend this accomodation or to use it again.

From the Owner

We have owned the Village Barn since Easter 2007 having fallen in love with it on a weekend visit to Burnsall. Burnsall is place that gets under your skin in Spring, Summer Autumn or Winter there is always something to see or do. The river and shingle beach next to the village green is great fun for the family. Alfie, the dog, always gets excited when we pack our things for a trip to the barn. The walking in the area is lovely and fairly easy if you stick to the river walks, becoming more challenging if you tackle the hills. The pubs serve excellent beer and food and are situated on a choice of circular walks ranging from 15 miles to 200m!!

From the Owner

The barn is located in the heart of the village and very close to the pub, shop, cafe and river walks. It is peaceful and restful with lovely views but at the same time not isolated. The wood-burner is great when you just want to snuggle up and read a book after a long ramble and pub lunch!!
