We have just returned from a wonderful long weekend in this delightful holiday house. Ian and Jackie have created a beautifully appointed , exceptionally comfortable and tastefully furnished home , sleeping 14 in 7 en suite bedrooms with a long dining table for eating around and a stunning gravelled garden . The weather was so warm and sunny we hardly used the huge sitting room or games room.
There are beautiful walks on the doorstep. We walked to Lastingham along the valley with a drink at The Blacksmiths Arms and back across the fields.
We had a celebratory Sunday lunch for my mother’s 90th birthday at the Moors Inn- excellent value and friendly helpful staff .
For a family get together in our case four generations ( 90 to 9 months) the Long Barn was an ideal holiday house.
Thank you Ian and Jackie for a great weekend.
Long Barn totally exceeded our very high expectations. It was a superb experience, from start to finish, with everything totally geared for our comfort and needs, no matter how trivial. We find it staggering that Ian & Jackie have brought their dream to reality in such a wonderful way and we unhesitatingly congratulate them on such an awesome achievement.
The attention to detail, the flair and eye for visual harmony are evident throughout the Long Barn. What a stupendous property & what joy it brought to us all! From the little ones to the oldies, we were all in our element.
The human aspect is always at the forefront too, as shown by the exceptional welcome pack & departure goodies. No long lists of rules and no security deposits lead to trust and a feeling of being treated as friends rather than visitors. Jackie and Ian have got everything just right!
The exceptional local pubs have been rightly mentioned in other reviews. Nearby Sinnington provided one highlight for the children - a great value and extremely well run riding lesson.
We will never forget our wonderful week at the Long Barn and certainly intend to return in the future.
The Long Barn is a stunning place to stay. Luxurious and restful the owners have thought of everything. The village has a great pub and great food and you can start walking straight from the front door. I could not recommend it more highly and with a big separate leisure room / barn that converts into meeting space it would also be ideal for small business retreats.
What is there not to like about the Long Barn?
Stunning accommodation in a beautiful location with fantastic owners who have paid attention to every detail.
Thank you so much for letting us have a wonderful Easter on mass with the family at The Long Barn. Happy adults, happy kids and a happy dog!
Would highly recommend this property.
A group of 11 stayed here for a hen weekend. The accommodation is sooooooo luxurious. All bedrooms have an ensuite. Toiletries are made available. The beds are so comfortable and the pillows are so full. The kitchen is amazing. More than enough crockery, cutlery and glassware. Cocktail glasses and shaker are available. The dining area is perfect for large groups. In the living room are a number of couches and tables. The log burner is a lovely touch. We lit it. This is such a huge property however it was remarkably warm. Hot water aplenty too. The games room is fantastic and the mezzanine area in it is a lovely extra. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch; the sloe gin went down particularly well.
All 11 of us could have stayed a lot longer and will definitely be returning.
