    On arrival we were delighted with the appearance and location of the cottage. The owner met us with a cup of tea and lots of information. Due to the rural location we used sat nav to find shops and amenities, many of which were several miles away. The cottage suited our requirements and the owner was readily available with info and extra equipment for our large family gathering.

    Acorn Barn is a lovely little cottage with an enclosed garden on one side. Three good sized bedrooms (1 upstairs) two good sized bathrooms (1 upstairs) a lounge/dinning room and kitchen. Quietly located down a long track and ideally situated for various places to visit. Really enjoyed our stay would have loved to stay longer but work calls. Only down side is the number of flies constantly in the property and a high number of wasps too!! Managed to contain the wasps outside with a sugary filled bowl. An electric fly zapper would be useful in the kitchen as it was annoying trying to serve food under kitchen roll to stop flies walking on the food.

    If peace and quiet is in order then this place is ideal, a real destress and unwind.

    Toasty warm for Feb, really helpful owner and quiet location so if you want to see starry skies and have peace then it was ideal. Not too isolated to get to York or the coast.

    Acorn barn was lovely, we had a wonderful week. Lovely and clean. Very well equipped. Everything you could possibly need was provided. Plenty of clean towels, even towels provided for the dog. The owner was lovely, very helpful and informative. Would definitely stay again.

    I have been to the cottage twice now, I love this cottage, it's ideal for my dogs with the very safe enclosed garden, the bedrooms are all a lovely size and it has two bathrooms, so no queuing for the bathroom. If you want to get away from the rat race and chill out watching lots of wildlife, then this is the cottage for you. I will definitely be back, Anne is very helpful when you turn up, she will give you lots of information about places to go and places to eat. I would recommend for all my family and friends.

    The location of the property was ideal for touring this part of Yorkshire, we were greeted by the owners who made us very welcome by having a drink and biscuits ready for us on our arrival. The property and facility's were excellent, and we would be very happy to return and stay in this lovely barn and area.

    In my opinion this holiday let is in desperate need of a Makeover. Sofas old & uncomfortable Dining table & chairs horrendous you have to use sofa cushions to sit on as the chairs are that old & knackered. Actually that is where we found the majority of the cushions so either the previous family had put these there or the owner knows the chairs are knackered & uncomfortable & just chooses not to renew them. The beds were so old & horrible to sleep on we left early just to get into our own beds. There was a Gail force blowing in around the front door you could actually see who was coming down the path through the gap down the side it fitted that poorly. The kitchen is not really fit for purpose & definitely not for a big family you could only really get 2 people in at any one time & then you couldn't really move. Kitchen utensils really need to be renewed. The tin opener literally fell apart & we had to ask to borrow the neighbours, how embarrassing. There was far too many personal belongings cluttering every surface which we had to move to allow us to lay out our bits & bobs...felt like we were invading not very welcoming. Would have left our comments in the visitors book but we couldn't find one.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Acorn barn is a traditional barn with oak beams. The table is solid oak antique and the chairs are Victorian chairs, the chair is waiting to be re-covered in February, so I have put cushion on each chair. Beds were replaced by Next U.K. last year, when we decorated and replaced all duvets. I have never had any complaints from previous guests, In fact, I receive comments how clean and home from home it is, with everything you could need. I am lost to know what the personal effects are. Most of our quests before and after you came to visit rated the cottage 10/10. We decorate every February and renew what needs renewing. Guests have been coming every year for years, and continue coming.
