    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.

    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

    The cottages was a little on the small side. There was only 4 in our party although the cottage could sleep 6. The bedrooms were small and the en-suite bathroom was very small, a larger person would have trouble using it.

    The open plan kitchen diner lounge is far too small for six people. We were two but we found it crammed.

    Booked for a 3 night weekend family get together, however,we all left after 2 nights. Sofa and chair very uncomfortable and side chairs grubby, this was mentioned in a review 3 years ago so we assumed this would have been rectified. Single beds had uncomfortable mattresses and all beds had only 1 very thin pillow per person,also mentioned in previous reviews but not rectified. Oven very dirty with an oily tray left inside. No battery in Smoke alarm!. The location is really good and this cottage could be lovely with some attention.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are disappointed to hear that you were not happy with your stay. We have not had any previous complaints regarding the sofas and the other two chairs are in good condition and were recommended to me by Cottages4You’s regional manager who advised that they were perfectly adequate for this cottage. The battery in smoke alarm has been replaced and apologies for missing that. We have also replaced the pillows.
