We recently stayed for a long weekend at Tarset Tor to celebrate our son-in-laws birthday. Our ages ranged from 2-65 and it has to be said that the accomodation was ideal for all. The barn was extremely well equipped and clean, and offered plenty of space for the children and adults to relax and feel at home. It is ideally situated for walks, cycle rides etc and there is a great pub in the village!
Rob and Clare were very welcoming, and were on hand to offer advice etc without being intrusive.
We would certainly recommend tarset tor to anyone who fancies a country break or wants to get away with a large group of friends or family. Hopefully we will return some time soon.

We hired the bunkbarn for a 40th birthday celebration and descended, kids, parents, grandparents and all, for a fantastic weekend break. Take the former reviewers at their word when they talk about Rob and Claire - perfect hosts from start to finish. They succeed where many holiday accommodation owners fail, at being warm, welcoming and helpful whilst still being discreet and making you feel like the place is your own.
Great facilities, plenty of space, the kids (4 and 2) LOVED it, and there is so much to do in the area, we could easily have stayed a week. Think... days out walking, messing around on the water, visiting lovely villages, lazing around outside proper local pubs, then returning home to a perfect woodland bar, BBQ and campfire, before retiring to the bunkbarn to gather around the log burner (burning pellets actually but not sure what they're called!) and play pool... and you get the picture.
Thanks Rob and Claire, the website paints a great picture and you did not disappoint. We wish you all the best with Tarset Tor for the future :)

Room Tip: Put smaller kids in the room next to the bathroom away from the pool room. Ours slept through happily there every night, despite some very late nights for others in the party!

Great service from start to finish from Rob and Claire, who were very welcoming and really went the extra mile to ensure we had a great weekend. Plenty of room for a group of 12 with a superbly equipped kitchen. Super fast WiFi. Clean, tidy and comfortable. A wonderful weekend away, I really cant fault it.

This place is fantastic. The bunkhouse is clean, modern, spacious and extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need provided (Including a pool table, drying room and sauna!) . The outdoor bar area is a great space, and perfect for a BBQ under the stars. Best of all are the owners Rob and Claire, who are very accommodating, friendly and down to earth. They can help you arrange all kinds of activities and will be more than happy to be flexible to your groups needs. Highly Recommended, we will be back!

A group of 10 of us stayed here as we were doing a charity walk around kielder waters and it was fantastic!!

Rob and Claire were fab from the moment we got there and really looked after us :-)

The bunkhouse itself is beautiful with everything you could possibly need (including a sauna where you can chill and watch the birds and stars!)

We all had a great time and i would recommend this to everyone!
