Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Beautiful, relaxing place to stay
We just spent the weekend celebrating a 50th birthday, and the barn couldn’t have been more perfect. The attention to detail is amazing, the barn has everything you could think of. All the bedrooms are very luxurious and comfortable. Ian and Jackie are the best hosts, and certainly made us extremely welcome. The homemade welcome gifts we very delicious. The pub round the corner the moors inn is very friendly and would certainly recommend the Sunday lunches!

Excellent place for a long weekend or longer
Thirteen of us stayed here for a long weekend Friday to Monday. It is a top class venue with everything that you can need and more. Is has 7 large beautiful bedrooms all with a lovely en suite. Everywhere is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The owners are lovely people who left us homemade cakes, jam and marmalade which were delicious. This has to be the best self catering place that I have ever stayed in. The surrounding area is wonderful with so many places to see and visit in beautiful scenery. Highly recommended.

Third visit
It is a fabulous place. Ian and Jackie have thought of everything that you could want at the property and leave such thoughtful gifts like the homemade jams and marmalade; homemade granola and the lemon drizzle cake. The location is perfect for walking the North York Moors. This was our third time there in the last 13 months and each trip has been wonderful. Highly recommended.

A Luxury Reunion in 5star comfort
It is a delightful and extremely comfortable house that is equipped to a very high standard. Everything has been thought of. A group of friends met there and had a wonderful reunion. It is within easy reach of the coast , the moors , Castle Howard to name just a few. I highly recommend this lovely home.

What a place!!
Our family booked the long barn for our parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Believe me, the place does not disappoint and the pictures do not do it justice. The layout has been so carefully considered. You're together but you're not on top of one another. It's a real experience to stay here. Not only does it wow on first sight, it keeps on giving. It's like the 'room of requirement' in Harry Potter. Everything little thing you might need, a cooking utensil, dressing gowns for pampering, entertainment, they have thought of it already and it's in a drawer somewhere! The welcome pack is incredibly thoughtful (and delicious!) Jackie & Ian are on site but out of sight, unless you need anything at all. They're so happy to help. We loved a circular walk through the heather, a trip into Helmsley and a celebratory dinner in the incredible dining room. For groups of family or friends, the long barn is somewhere incredibly special and a place we hope to return soon!

Fabulous break!
Wow, what an amazing property. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left we were surrounded by amazing facilities, great bedrooms with superb bedding and a fantastic games room - what more could you ever want. Everything is finished to a very high standard. As two families totaling 12 it was so nice to all have an en-suite. From playing table tennis, table football and guitar heroes to just relaxing with a nice chilled glass of wine eating from the bbq - wonderful. The Moors pub just around the corner provided us with an excellent Sunday lunch in the ‘snug’. Thank you to the hosts Ian and Jackie and for the much appreciated little extras on arrival (fresh eggs, damson gin, home made granola and lemon drizzle cake) and on departure the home made chocolate brownies. We are already planning a return visit.

Fantastic, Fabulous, Flippin' Amazing!
We're a group of friends who go away together once a year. This is one of, if not THE best place we've stayed at. Lots of space for everyone, everything you think you might need is provided. The kitchen is so well equipped and if you don't want to cook the village pub is a five minute walk away. We all had a brilliant time and can't think of a single thing to improve on. Also delicious cakes, granola and jams provided. The beds are so comfy and warm too. I kind of want to live there. Ian and Jackie made us feel so welcome; sometimes when you stay somewhere there is a massive list of don't do this, don't do that but we felt that they genuinely care about and want their guests to have the best time. If I could give ten stars I would!

Perfect
We spent a week at the Long Barn to celebrate a milestone family birthday, We've stayed at many many cottages and houses over the years but this was without doubt the best by a very long way. The finish and attention to detail is exceptional. It was lovely to all have our own space (and there is lots of it!) and yet the house is still cosy and very warm and comfortable. We felt completely at home very quickly. Fab welcoming touches including delicious homemade granola and a huge lemon drizzle cake, the owners are lovely, there if you need them but very discreet and unobtrusive. The house is in a beautiful village with an excellent pub. Lots of dog friendly walks (sheep free!) from the door. We've already booked again and will recommend to friends. An amazing find and made for a very happy & relaxing holiday with some lovely memories.

So good we visited twice.
We booked the Long Barn to celebrate a 60th birthday. The initial visit in Feb was a family affair, then we booked another visit in March with a group of friends. A bit of trepidation as we booked twice without any of us using the Long Barn previously. On our arrival in Feb, all our fears disappeared in an instant. We were greeted by Ian, who showed us around the property and explained various functions. We have stayed in numerous holiday rentals over the years, but none have been as well equipped as this one. There are several little touches that make it even more special. (I won't spoil it, but if you like cake etc :). All of the bedrooms are en-suite and decorated to a high standard, so no squabbling about who gets the best room. The Long Barn is ideal for family get togethers and suitable for all ages. There are numerous walks around the village and easy to drive to others if required. The Moors Inn pub is walkable and does fantastic meals. (You may need to book a table if it is a large group). All of our family and friends were impressed with the Long Barn and we are already planning our next visits. A big thank you to Jackie & Ian, you have a wonderful place.
