Escape to the romantic rugged hills of the idyllic Yorkshire Dales and relax with friends and family in our luxury, 5-bedroomed holiday home. Ideally situated above the affluent spa town of Ilkley and just a stone’s throw from the historic market town of Skipton, our newly renovated 17th Century barn provides the perfect Yorkshire retreat.
This spacious property can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests and is equipped with modern facilities including a Quooker hot tap, Sky Q television, Wi-Fi and a cosy wood burning stove.
Charming, yet modern; The Barn at Ilkley is not your average UK holiday cottage. We’ve gone above and beyond to make sure that all of our guests are provided with space and amenities required to make their stay as relaxing as possible. After all, the purpose of a holiday is to unwind and escape from the stresses of everyday life. We’ve also done our utmost to preserve the natural features of our 17th-century building whilst adapting accordingly to accommodate 21st-century living and modern technology.
On the ground floor, you will find our contemporary kitchen, utility room, bathroom and additional downstairs WC. The kitchen is elegantly equipped with granite worktops, modern appliances and a Quooker hot tap, which eliminates the need for a kettle. The hot tap has proved to be an extremely popular feature, particularly with large parties of guests who love a good Yorkshire brew!
A spacious open-plan living and dining room provides ample room for guests to relax and eat together as a group. On colder evenings, you may make use of the wood burning stove, for which we provide a starter pack of fuel and other necessities.
Two of our five bedrooms are also located on the ground floor, making the property suitable for disabled guests or those who have difficulty climbing stairs. Both of the ground floor bedrooms have stable doors leading directly into the front garden, which further improves accessibility.
Ascend the wooden staircase and arrive in the upstairs hallway, where the original iron and timber barn machinery to the open ceiling, remain. A further mezzanine living area on this floor allows large parties to congregate in separate groups or participate in different activities whilst enjoying the spectacular views of the front garden and surrounding countryside. Sky TV is available on both the ground floor and first-floor living areas so arguments over the TV remote are infrequent.
Of course, the remaining luxury bedrooms are also located on the first floor – 1 x Super King Size and 2 x King Size. Each of the upstairs bedrooms is en-suite, ensuring all guests have adequate privacy and personal space.
We are incredibly proud of our newly renovated barn conversion and we do our very best to ensure all of our guests are comfortably accommodated and can enjoy their break in a homely, yet luxurious environment. If there is anything you feel we have missed or anything else you require during your stay in our holiday home, please do not hesitate to let us know.
