“perfect stay - November 2011”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

We had a wonderful stay at the The Old Barn - it's extremely comfortable, very stylish and wonderfully clean. The Host Lynda was superb and cooks a fantastic breakfast. We've stayed in many, many b&b's over the years and this is by far one of the finest - great price too. We had two lovely days here and hope to come back again. Mr & Mrs Swinhoe

We've stayed in dozens of B & B's over the past 10 years and rate this amongst the best. Lynda is a delightful host, her breakfasts are superb and the bedroom with en-suite power shower is immaculate. There's a great choice of restaurants within just 2 minutes walk. Set within lovely walking country, Middleton comes over as a very friendly place. Take time to say hello to Charlie, the village cat, who wanders around the village as though he owns it! An excellent place to stay with excellent value for money.

We can endorse the very positive views of other travellers. Fully modernised accommodation, kept spotlessly clean, and a very friendly and helpful hostess. Wet outerwear was spirited away for drying! Excellent breakfast to start the day. Only one minor drawback - those (like US based visitors) used to generously proportioned accommodation while on the road may find the room here, and the washbasin in the ensuite bathroom, on the small side. But that's fairly common in the UK, while the modest price (relatively uncommon in the UK when compared with other European countries or the US, sadly) means that the Old Barn combines quality with excellent value. We'd very happily stay again.

We were a family of 6 and occupied all the rooms.The decor was lovely and good quality, the best shower ever! The breakfast was fabulous, and the host Linda was very nice.Would recommend this B&B and it is well worthy of its 4* rating.

We've just returned from a week's stay at this B&B and rate it very highly. Lynda is very helpful and friendly, with plenty of local knowledge on walking and places to visit. There are maps and guide books available for guests' use. The accommodation was extremely comfortable, clean and the power shower was one of the best I've ever used! Breakfast was delicious every day. We thought it was great.

My brothers and I stayed here on July 4th 2011. Lynda our host made us feel very welcome indeed making us tea and offering quality biscuits on arrival. Quality is the word for this B&B.The decor, rooms, cleaniness, bedding and towels were all first class. Lynda's breakfast was exceptional, clean and extremely well cooked and presented to four hungry Pennine Way walkers. If quality is the theme then attitude and attention to detail topped off what can only be described as a very pleasant stay. Well done Lynda keep it up.
ps - You are underpriced, we have paid a lot more for a lot less this holiday!

Room Tip: All rooms good (three in total) If you do not stop here you will miss a trick!
