Trip Advisor Travellers Choice - Best of the best

“This was our second stay as a family. None of us wanted to go home on the Monday! We will return for many more family weekends in the years to come. Thank you Brigita.”

“Hay Barn was a perfect place to stay. We had a lovely time with the grand children. Everything catered for, quite location but close to York. Local pubs were very welcoming and everyone very friendly. A great welcome basket from the owners was the perfect start to our week stay. Could not fault anything. Already planning our next stay!”

M Cox

“Just returned from a short break at The Haybarn. As soon as I walked through the front door I knew it was going to be special. It was 5☆ luxury for us and hopefully will return sooner than later!”

Previous Guest

“This is the third time we have stayed at dovecote barns and yet again thoroughly enjoyed it. The hay barn was renovated to a very high standard and Brigitta was extremely welcoming and informative regarding the surrounding area. The welcome basket was a nice touch and the home made bread delicious. Would definitely come back.”

J Mearl

“As a family we have stayed in a few self catering holiday homes – this has to be one of the best in terms of furnishings, comfort, attention to detail and local information. We arrived on the 2nd January to the 5th and the Christmas decorations were still up – my girls felt very special. We will definitely be returning”
