We have just returned for a second stay at this delightful converted barn. We were a group of 9 hiking friends who stay in various accommodation every month. Warth Barn is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in.
From the moment you arrive you know you are very welcome, with a freshly made cake and drinks waiting for you on the table. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and in the basement there is a drying room with washing machine and tumble dryer.
This is a large dining table able to seat 10 as well as a very large corner sofa with plenty of room for everyone, good size TV, games and a log burner,
The bedrooms and bathrooms are immaculately presented, plenty of hot water and heating. We stayed during the coldest night of the year and the place was extremely cosy.
We will continue to return each year,
We have just returned after a weekend stay at Warth Barn for a family member’s 70th birthday. There were ten of us staying (6 adults & 4 children aged 5-12) in this beautifully equipped and homely converted barn.
Everything you could need was provided, including ample space, lots of bathrooms, a variety of guide books and games as well as a lovely gift left for our arrival.
I can not recommend the property enough and I am certain that we will stay again as a family.
Just returned from a week at Warth Barn. My friend & I had booked the barn to celebrate our special birthdays this year and wanted it to be a lovely treat for our party of 8. We were not disappointed. From opening the door we were greeted by warm, cosy accomodation, a welcoming card,cake & wine left by the owner. After choosing our bedrooms, all modern, cosy & immaculately clean we explored the kitchen, lounge. There was every utencil you could wish for in the lovely kitchen & the lounge overlooked beautiful scenery. We had many happy evenings around the long table, cheese nights, gin nights, games nights & for those amongst us who wanted to relax & read there was lovely comfortable seating. We didn't move our cars all week, allowing us to enjoy a nice drink at the end of the day at the Mason Arms, just at the end of the lane (torch required for walks home in the dark), very friendly staff & nice food. We also enjoyed a walk to the farm shop, and on to the Marton Arms, can highly recommend the Slingsby rhubarb gin, served beautifully with enough raspberries to meet your 5 a day!!! If you don't fancy that they have another 51 to choose from!! The early birds amongst us enjoyed a morning walk once it got light, setting off with a nod from the 2 sheep in the garden to see us on our way!! A brisk circuit around Ingleton village with a call off at the bakery ( serving from 7am) to buy delicious bread, pasties, pies , bacon & sausage sandwiches made for a good start to the day! We took the bus to Kirby Lonsdale, well worth a visit and also enjoyed another bus ride to Settle and caught the train to Ribblehead to see the amazing viaduct up close. The Ingleton waterfalls trail was superb, well worth £6, sturdy footwear definitely needed & well earned pint at the end! A mention must go to Ingleton Tandoori for the tasty but VERY hot Madras, we enjoyed our poppadoms & pickles, thank you!! A great week was had by our gang & I would recommend Warth Barn to anyone of my family & friends as a superb base, could not fault it.
This is without doubt one of the nicest holiday homes we have had the pleasure to stay in. Equipped and finished to the highest standard we immediately felt at home. We travelled as two families and this cottage gave us the cosiness of a comunal get together with the added advantage of en suite facilities to ensure our privacy. There is a lovely garden for the children to play in and it felt really safe with no passing traffic. Geographically it was well placed to explore the local area and we didnt travel far to enjoy some really good days out. Thanks to Shula and family for making us feel welcome. I have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful part of our country.

We have just come back from a 1 week stay with 7 adults and 3 children. There was plenty of room for all of us. The barn is very luxurious, we didn't want to come home! It has everything you need even for children including toys, safety gates, high chairs and a cot.
Would definitely recommend and hopefully will be going back soon.
