  • The H-Family

    Absolutely Beautiful Barn. Had a great stay there and would 100% go back. Very clean and everything you need. It’s right next to a working farm however we read this before booking so we were completely aware. Waking up to the Cows mooing was quite nice.

  • The A-Family

    Hollybank Barn had everything we needed in a clean, modern, well designed space that has everything you need. If you are easily bothered by noise, there is (as mentioned) a working farm behind it with heavy duty vehicles. This didn't really bother us but may do others. The windows and doors do well to block it. Other than that it is in a lovely location that is perfect for getting away from it all.

    Didn’t want to go home. Slept sooooo well and loved the gentle mooing of the cows. We’ll certainly be returning. Clean, tidy, comfortable, loved it all.
