“ Fantastic ”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed at Larklands from the 12th February to the 15th 2016 with another couple there 3 children and our 3 dogs X and it was absolutely fantastic . Angela & Jack our hosts were so friendly and welcoming, and the place itself was magnificent. The kitchen was all our favourite the sheer size of it was unreal :) loved our welcome pack and the kitchen had everything you ever needed in it. The large airy rooms with open beams were even more better with 7ppl & 3 dogs we never once felt there was not enough space. All bedrooms & bathrooms spotless with lovely little touches and the master room with ensuite was another place altogether loved that they had so many games, toys & DVDs. Now on to the chickens the kids enjoyed seeing them even the dogs fancied a go :( but to top it off we got to feed a lamb which was brilliant been a huge animal lover :) over all our break away was 10/10 everything you could of asked for & more :) not to mention our friends went home a day early for work and as we are non car drivers Angela was more then happy to take us back home now not every host would do that if any X thanks for letting us stay and hope to see you again soon xxxx

Thank you for sharing this wonderful review with us all, we couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your holiday at Larklands! It sounds like the owners took fabulous care of you, really going above and beyond, and this on top of what sounds like a great break already! It is excellent to hear that the whole party were so impressed with the property, we think we would have a great time being surrounded by the animals too! We certainly hope that you return for another holiday very soon.

“Another wonderful visit to Larklands”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This November we rented Larklands cottage for the second time. Our hosts, Angela and Jack, greeted us as old friends and the cottage was comfortable and inviting. My husband and I invited another couple to join us for part of our stay and we found that Larklands is the ideal base for touring Yorkshire. We took day trips to York, Castle Howard, Langley Castle, Ripley Castle and the Swaledale area. We also spent many pleasurable days just walking around the farm and enjoying the local scenery. We can't wait for our visit in 2016.

Visited with friends for the second year running . Fantastic property maintained and equipped to the highest of standards. Views are awesome.
Hosts Jack and Angela again made us more then welcome whilst giving us the freedom to roam the property.
Cannot understand how anyone could not love the house and location if you looking for a genuine quality break in gods own country.
Will be back again next year

“Misleading property description & overpriced”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015
1
person found this review helpful

‘three outstanding bedrooms’. Bedrooms were nicely furnished but the master bedroom was the only one with a wardrobe – a problem unless you are happy to live out of a suitcase.
The flattering photos proclaimed glorious views but the three back windows looked out onto a banking whilst the view from the front windows was of farm buildings across the stony chicken run billed as a courtyard. The views of Ravensworth village are half a mile away, not visible from the property.
The approach to the property is through a closed gate at the end of a long bumpy farm track (fair enough, Larklands is on a farm) but the track is muddy and unpleasant in wet weather.
Larklands is an excellent barn conversion but we did not think it good value for money.
Many reviews complimented the owners on their hospitality. Shortly after arrival, Angela greeted us and mentioned some ‘do not’s. We did not see either owner after that. Other visitors seem to have had an entirely different experience leaving us to wonder at the validity of some reviews. Then again, perhaps it was us!

“Pet friendly luxury barn conversion in superb location”
Reviewed 18 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great week staying at Larklands with our teenage daughter and our two small dogs. The owners are really friendly and welcoming. The barn has everything you could ask for as it's very well equipped. Our daughter loved the free Wifi!

Ravensworth is an ideal base if you want to visit the beautiful market towns of Yorkshire. Larklands is really pretty and tranquil and perfect spot for a relaxing break.

Our dogs had a great time watching the chickens, ducks etc from the window. Larklands is a working farm and we were slightly worried how the dogs would react but they were perfect and had a great time.

Would recommend Larklands to anyone looking for luxury accommodation in a beautiful and relaxing location.

“Extremely comfortable barn with very welcoming hosts”

person found this review helpful

We spent a week in this lovely barn conversion and cannot rate it too highly. It is much better equipped than many of the other places we have rented and is extremely comfortable. We were made to feel like very welcome guests and Jack and Angela could not have been more helpful or kinder. We even had a constant supply of free, fresh eggs!
The area itself is beautiful and we found it very easy to get to Richmond and places a bit further afield such as Fountains Abbey and Durham. Would love to go back.

“Picturesque, peaceful, comfortable, welcoming...a perfect vacation.”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

My husband and I spent two weeks at Larklands on our annual trip to the UK. The whole experience was a delight. Angela and Jack are wonderful hosts. The barn conversion is to very high standards, a beautiful old building with a very modern and comfortable interior. Bedrooms and bathrooms were well stocked with linens and very peaceful for a good nights sleep. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals from our local shopping sprees. The market town of Richmond is a short drive away and has a wonderful butcher and fresh produce markets. Larklands is close to several good restaurants and pubs. All in all, a fantastic vacation home, one that we will revisit as often as possible.
