"One of the best"





The cottage is well-equipped with everything we need, and the level of details is superb. The owner has obviously put in a lot of efforts to make the cottage very comfortable for its guests. The property is spacious. The location is well suited for walks and visits to many attractions in the Yorkshire Dales.



This is one of the best holiday cottages that I have stayed in, and I would recommend it to anyone who is planning a vacation in the Yorkshire Dales.

"Delightful property in a lovely location"





We are self catering veterans and would rate this property as one of the best that we have stayed in for a number of reasons. It has been converted to create a spacious yet cosy property, felt more like a home than a holiday let, was extremely well equipped and in a great location at one end of the village of Carlton. Two of our party were in their eighties and the ground floor bedroom and shower room fitted the bill perfectly. We all enjoyed bird spotting through the bifold doors from the comfort of the chairs indoors and did have one evening warm enough to open them and sit in the patio garden. There was little light pollution and it was very peaceful with views across the Dales. It was also a great touring/walking centre, and we would love to come back one day to carry on our exploration of the area. Must also mention the Foresters Arms - ate there on two evenings and were made very welcome. Even with a wheelchair it only took us around 10 minutes to walk to the pub, and the walk itself is a delight. Finally, we were fortunate to be in the Yorkshire Dales during the run up to the Tour de France, and were so impressed with the effort that the towns, villages, pubs and homes had taken to decorate a welcome. We even had a line of knitted yellow jerseys over the garage at the property. A gem!

"A Gem of a place"





We recently stayed here to celebrate Dad's 86th birthday and it was lovely. The Barn conversion is beautiful, with wonderful views from a superbly decorated kitchen. We loved the open aspect of the bifold doors and was just disappointed that the weather didn't allow us to enjoy the patio area. The barn was extremely well stocked and we lacked for nothing (except warmer weather). We enjoyed a superb meal at The Forresters Arms in the village with wonderful friendly service. The surrounding countryside is spectacular and after our days out and about the log fire at the barn was lovely. Couldn't fault anything and I am sure we will be back. Thank you Julie. A place to be proud of. Ingrid and Roger Brown

Beautiful inside and out

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was gorgeous! cosy and homely. Excellent facilities. Quiet little village (you could hear a pin drop) with dog walks from the door. Local pub within 5 min walking distance & fish and chips from a mobile van on thurs night. Nearest bank/shops in Leyburn or the opposite road that takes you to Aysgarth there is a village store. The forbidden corner/Brymor icecream shop/Middleham castle/Aysgarth falls/Chocolate factory all nearby. . If you want some R&R away from the hustle and bustle of our towns and cities then this cottage is for you!

Ideal cottage in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a peaceful location for a relaxing break with my wife and this one proved to be ideal. Carlton is a lovely village in a ideal setting for walking and the occasional trip further afield. The pub is 5 minutes walk away and is very welcoming. The cottage had everything you could possibly need, was very clean and well-equipped and was very comfortable. Leyburn proved to be a regular trip for us to pick up supplies (try the local store there - Campbells I think it was - some nice locally produced meat and pies etc). All in all, we loved it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful break or a Wensleydale base for touring / walking etc. Not recommended if you don't like sheep and cows!

Our second stay in Carlton

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Old Byre in Carlton, and as before we found this well appointed cottage much to our liking.

being near the top of the village it is only a very short walk to once more being out on the Moors surrounded by nature and with only the sounds and sights of nature to enjoy. If you enjoy being close to nature this must be one of the best spots in the country, a haven for walkers, one must however always take precautions with the English weather, if you come prepared then you most certainly will enjoy.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely stay in Yorkshire. Julie and everyone we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. Very detailed instruction throughout the property were very helpful especially when we flipped a breaker. The property was comfortable, clean and the perfect home away from home for our visit for a family wedding at Castle Bolton. The property was perfectly located for day trips to enjoy the beautiful countryside and villages. There were many fabulous nearby restaurants (Sandpiper Inn in Leyburn, and the Wensleydale Heifer Restaurant in Wet Witton). It was a great location to relax and also enjoy the rich history found in the many nearby castles, abbeys and museums.

I would definitely recommend this property and would love the opportunity to return someday.

Old Hall Byre, Carlton

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Old Hall Byre for the half-term week with the children and grandchildren. The property was ideal for two families (4 adults, 2 children) - we took the downstairs bedroom and used the shower-room located in the hall, the other side of the sitting room. Everything was in very good condition and well-equipped - the white goods/appliances made ours at home seem old fashioned! The full-width bi-folding doors took full-advantage of the lovely view and the substantial eating table outside would have been ideal had the weather been a little warmer. This area was not overlooked and the whole property was secure which was comforting with children. The utility area in the large garage was excellent. Carlton has its own pub and a fish and chip van visits the village on a Thursday evening. It is a few miles to the nearest shop at Middleham or a little further on to Leyburn where there is a fantastic Co-op and Cambells which is a country supermarket full of lovely things! We would recommend a holiday in this part of Yorkshire as there is a lot to do both for adults and families. (Don't miss Forbidden Corner - best book in advance!) This property comes highly recommended.

Beautiful and stylish

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at Carlton for a week in May (4 adults and 2 dogs). The barn has been beautifully converted, not just with style but also a lot of thought - nothing was lacking and the property is very well maintained.

Carlton itself is a lovely village - walks onto the hills straight from the door, an excellent, friendly pub, fantastic views yet within 5 miles of Leyburn for all your needs. We look forward to returning to the barn in the future and cannot recommend the property highly enough.
