Situated in Dentdale, within the Yorkshire Dales The Old Craft Barn is peaceful yet convenient for access in and around the area. Our hosts were welcoming and very friendly. Who happened to cook a very appealing breakfast which we enjoyed. Our B and B accommodation was very well presented and really high quality. We had access to a lounge area downstairs which was decorated with curios showing the Barns history, We both felt very at ease at the B and B and would not hesitate to visit again. Our hosts respected Covid regulations and there was not shortage or signs of their efforts to provide a safe environment.

Thank you, we really appreciate your kind review. At times like this it is important to create a safe environment therefore we are taking less people in order that social distancing can be practiced. We also have a strict cleaning regime and special care is taken at breakfast. Joe is proud of his breakfast and we are pleased that you enjoyed it. It was lovely to meet you both and we hope that it won't be long before you're back. Once again Thank you!

My husband and I have just returned home from an amazing 4 nights stay at this outstanding B&B. From the moment we arrived we were blown by the place. The accommodation was spotlessly clean with lovely touches, like fresh flowers in our room. We stayed in the 'Hayloft' and the view from the window was beautiful.I sat by the window each evening just admiring the scenery. Also, and very importantly, the bed was super comfy. The variety and quality of breakfast options was the best we have ever experienced in a B&B. The only difficulty will be deciding what to choose, although you will not be disappointed with your choice. Everything is so tastey and well presented. Our hosts, Carrol and Joe, must genuinely be two of the nicest people we have had the good fortune to meet. They really look after their guests and go above and beyond to make your stay a wonderful one. Nothing is too much trouble . Thank you so much Carrol and Joe. You really are 'SIMPLY THE BEST'

Thank you for your kind comments. The cottage is ideally situated for touring both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lakeland scenery. It lies in the smallest but often described the prettiest Dale. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again sometime.

My sister and I have just returned from a wonderful break at Buzzards cottage. So cosy and situated in the most beautiful area. We felt safe and secure in the current COVID 19 climate and took advantage of all the fantastic walks in the Dentdale valley and beyond. Thank you for a very warm welcome.

My wife had stayed here several years ago & raved about it so we though we’d stay for a couple of nights & walk a small section of the Dales Way which passes nearby. It’s easy to reach as it’s only a few miles from M6 J36. Our room was the Hayloft & was spacious & comfortable. Two good nights sleep was had. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. The owners Joe & Carol were friendly & welcoming, even providing a space for my bike & a welcome cup of tea & scones including homemade lemon curd just as my wife remembered! Dent & Sedbergh are a short drive away. We’ll definitely be back again, hopefully when the weather is drier!
