    A very cosy house. It is well equipped. It is brilliant for the dogs, a field where they can run and plenty of walks . The hallway has plenty of room for boots and coats. The owners were very accommodating. It is in a great location for the Dales and the Tissington trail. There a lovely views of the Dales from the windows and the top field

    Owl barn was a good property for a long weekend but we found it a little cold in some of the rooms.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback. The radiators are balanced so the heating is evenly spread throughout all of the rooms in the property. Upon arrival, we did advise you to use the thermostat to control the temperature and not the radiators in individual rooms, as this will draw heat from other rooms therefore making them feel that little bit cooler. Using the thermostat helps to keep the temperature balanced throughout the property. We hope that the above did not detract too much from the overall enjoyment of your break at Owl Barn Cottage.
