What Our Guests Say...
Wow! What a jewel nestled in the Dales. Gorgeous little cottage surrounded by breathtaking countryside. Thank you Diane and Andrew. Would just love to return.
Thank you Diane and Andrew for making us so welcome at your luxurious cottage. We have thoroughly enjoyed a full week walking and sight-seeing in glorious scenery and (on the whole!) glorious weather. We enjoyed your amazing library, the bird song, the lovely garden, relaxing in the evening, the shopping and the wine. With all good wishes for future ventures. Maker - the flower meadows are a feast for the eyes - really lift the spirits & walk on to Keld. Aysgarth Rock Garden - a relet retreat - amazing creation. Not what you might expect! Knitters beware! Longwood Sheep Shop off Leyburn Market Square. Well worth a visit. Mainly luxurious soft wool from Wensleydale sheep.
A stunning cottage in a fantastic location. Thank to Diane & Andrew for your kind hospitality and the lift to the pub!
A very relaxing stay in this stunning cottage in the wonderful Dales! The Dales are just as beautiful any time of the year. Thank you both for your very warm welcome and good luck on the completion of the Dairy.
A wonderful week in a perfect cottage. Thank for your hospitality.
Our first visit and what a wonderful cottage! So luxurious and comfortable. Everything has been thought of. Best one we've ever stayed in. We'll be back. Diane & Andrew are so lovely too!
Well, what can I say? I've had three New Years at Inglenook which have been very enjoyable. However, The Byre is another step up from that. It's very well equipped and I've wanted for nothing. It is very warm and comfortable. Five stars and a Gold award say it all. I'll be back in 2020 to see in 2021!
Visit number 7 to The Byre and it just gets better and better, and our 5th visit to 'Cottage in the Dales' in 2019. Everyone so special! Despite lots of rain and mist for the first 5 days, we've had a wonderful time and even got to Castle Howard this visit. Thank you Diane for the tip - it was a delight! The Dales looked beautiful. It's going to be so hard to leave but we are already looking forward to at least 4 visits in 2020! Diane & Andrew - thank you both so very much! xxxx
Our second visit to The Byre aka 'Paradise!' We leave once again with wonderful memories of a very special place and people. Thank you so much. xxx
A lovely, well equipped cottage in a really quiet spot. We can only agree with previous guests' comments on the standard of the accommodation and the lovely hosts. The falls at West Burton are worth the walk, but if it's been wet, we'd recommend very sturdy boots and gaiters! Leyburn & Thirsk worth a visit. Would love to return in warmer weather. Thank you.
From the moment we stepped through the door we were impressed. This has to be the 'Best Premier Cottage' we have stayed in. The attention to detail was excellent and Diane and Andrew have been superb hosts ensuring we had a great week!!
Our first visit to The Byre and hopefully not our last. We have enjoyed a fabulous week in the Yorkshire sunshine - our bikes took us on scenic routes past flower-filled meadows - stunning! The accommodation and hosts, Diane and Andrew, are outstanding and we have already recommended The Byre to friends. Favourite places were Bolton Castle (great value) and the Himalayan Sculpture Garden - at its very best in late May/early June.
An absolute gem of a cottage in beautiful peaceful surroundings. The Byre is a wonderful haven away from the humdrum of everyday life. Attention to detail is second to none. All the awards are very well deserved. We have had a wonderful short break and will look to return asap. Thank you xx
What a lovely cottage containing everything you could possibly need. Great location, we were very lucky with the weather and managed to some spectacular skies, with and without the telescope. Diane & Andrew should be very proud. You can see how much care has gone into the renovation. We will definitely return. Thank you very much.
Despite the end of a heatwave, an amazing few days walking in such a special place. What you say about Diane and Andrew that has not been said before!! You can fully understand why The Byre received a national winner award from Visit England. You never felt you are in a 'holiday' cottage. Perfect. Shame we had to go home. Thanks for making my birthday so special. Very best wishes for your future ventures and The Dairy x
We have been in some lovely cottages over the years, but The Byre is definitely the best we have stayed in. Very tastefully decorated and everything is of the highest quality. Diane and Andrew were lovely. We would certainly stay again and would recommend to family and friends. Thank you xx. Beautifully decorated for Christmas!!
Terrific cottage in a beautiful location. Thank you Di and Andrew. I'd say we will be back, but I think it will be difficult with all the previous guests rebooking!. But we'll try!
Lovely cottage with all that is required for a good break. Diane is very helpful and obviously wants everyone who stays here to have a very enjoyable holiday. Thank you.
We have enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing stay in a superb cottage in a most beautiful location. The warmest of welcomes and kind gestures have only served to add to this. From the moment we booked to now has been a pleasure. We will be recommending this to all who are looking to visit this stunning part of England.
Thank you again for another fabulous holiday in your beautiful cottage. Thank you also for all the cycling information before we arrived so we could plan our viewing spots! We have enjoyed every minute from sitting on the patio in the glorious sunshine to watching the cycling in torrential rain. We look forward to our return stay in December xx
Another glorious break away from it all! We love staying in your cottages as you feel at home the moment you walk through the door. Everything has been provided for a truly relaxing stay. Thank you again!
'A gem of a cottage set in a haven of peace'. Impressed by the attention to detail in all respects. Look forward to returning in the future.
Absolutely fantastic time. Your thought and care gone into The Byre is first class. Everything is of such high luxury standard that has made our few days away so special. Enjoyed a challenging walk around Semerwater, a meal at the Street Head Inn and one at the White Lion. All highly recommended. Thank you to Andrew & Diane for the birthday wine and the taxi ride. I'm sure we will be back and most definitely recommend.
A fantastic weekend in a superb cottage, with every luxury needed. Lovely to be able to walk up the road for a relaxing drink and return to light the fire. Lunch at Wensleydale Heifer an excellent option. We'll return in the warmer weather!
We have had a lovely stay here. The cottage is gorgeous - it is clear that a lot of hard work and love has gone into making this a first class cottage in the dales. Diane and Andrew are such warm and hospitable people, and go out of their way to make your stay a great one. Thank you for a special Christmas here - our first one as retirees!
Another wonderful stay at The Byre. Some wonderful weather. Fantastic walking, especially Kettlewell to Arncliffe. Saw a kingfisher at Eshington Bridge & 3 roe deer near to Hubberholme. Thank you Diane & Andrew for your friendly welcome. Super cottage. Look forward to returning next year.
What a wonderful stay we have had. The Byre is so comfortable and all our needs catered for. Diane and Andrew have put a lot of thought and hard work into their holiday accommodation and are such wonderful hosts. Thanks again. ******
What can we say - another fabulous stay at The Byre - Christmas just wouldn't be the same without it!! The cottage as always looked stunning and your hospitality the best ever. It rained every day but it was great to come back to the warm, cosy cottage. See you in April at Inglenook. Happy Christmas & best wishes for 2020 xx
Our second stay at the wonderful Byre cottage. Thank you Diane & Andrew for providing such a wonderful cottage and beautiful gardens. You have thought of everything! Worth travelling to the other side of the world to stay here!
This is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. A perfect place to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Diane and Andrew for everything. Already planning our next visit x. PS. The night sky around here is amazing as there are no street lights. Good luck for April.
An amazing break in an amazing cottage where every need & more is catered for. A warm welcome with bread baking heralded a wonderful stay. Thank you both & we look forward to more in the near future.
Wow! absolutely amazing. From the moment we booked, attention to detail excellent. Perfect hosts, nothing too much trouble. Great walks.
Beautifully immaculate! Loved the extra touches. Thank you so much.
As I sit out on the terrace and gaze up at the Dales one last time, it's with heavy reluctance we have to pack up and head home. What can you say but 'idyllic'. Thank you Diane & Andrew. Yorkshire's Gem.
Another really relaxing week at The Byre. Thank you both for your hospitality and ideas for walks and meals out, and especially for taking us to and from Leyburn for our anniversary meal at 'Thirteen'. Looking forward to our next visit.
So lovely to have our first post lockdown holiday in The Byre. Our favourite place to stay along with Inglenook of course! The weather could have been kinder, but who cares! Thanks Diane for everything and fingers crossed we will be back in December to test out The Dairy. See you soon.
Fabulous cottage in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you Diane and Andrew for the warm welcome. My first visit here but it won't be the last. Thank you!
Our second visit and a perfect place to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. A wonderful 'home' to come back to after a day's walking. A muddy 8 miles from the cottage and a shorter 4 at Hawes. Thank you for making our stay so special - we will be back. (Green Pathfinder Guide Walks 6 & 2).
Beautiful cottage. How I wish my kitchen at home was like The Byre's. Look out Nicky, hang on to your wallet! Thank you Diane & Andrew.
Perfection. Everything has been thought of and works. We experienced Dark Skies with Andrew's telescope too. Diane is a font of knowledge and we will be back again. THANKS SO MUCH!
Really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and comfortable cottage. Diane and Andrew - so welcoming and helpful. Planning to come again. Thanks for the lovely welcome pack. x
A lovely welcome from you Diane. As always a lovely experience. Thank you both so much. We are well chilled. Attention to detail is breathtaking. Also thank you for a lovely time, getting to know you better and to meet John & Cal was a special time with you all. Can't wait to return.
Return trip and not disappointed. Some fabulous walks including one from Bainbridge around Semerwater - able to see both dales from the ridge - amazing. Good visits to Ilkley 'Bettys' and to Ripon on less energetic days. Great hosts and fabulous location.
The BEST holiday accommodation we have ever had. Thanks for a lovely short break. We will be back!!
We came for a post Christmas relaxing break and had just that! Beautiful cottage, perfect hosts, great location. We had a lovely time!
Wonderful cottage in such a peaceful location. We had a fantastic time at the West Burton firework display, with sparklers provided by Diane (so thoughtful). Diane & Andrew are lovely hosts, with ideas for trips and places to visit. We've had a lovely mini break and I've had a memorable birthday. Thank you for making it so. x
We have thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to The Byre, an exceptional property in a beautiful location. Everything has exceeded our expectations. Diane & Andrew's dedication and commitment to the properties is evident throughout. Weather has been amazing and so we have enjoyed lots of walking & exploring of the area. Fab dining at The Blue Lion at East Witton, The White Lion at Cray, Vennells in Masham. Jervaulx Abbey Tea Room, Hamilton's Tea Room & The White Bear at Masham were great for lunches and snacks. We are already look forward to a return visit next year. Thank you so much for your kindness and for making this such an enjoyable holiday.
What can we say about The Byre that hasn't been said! The awards over the years is a testament of Diane and Andrew's professionalism. We had an amazing week; in addition to quality accommodation we enjoyed the walks, food and all the friendly people we met. We plan to return. Continued success to Diane & Andrew.
Absolutely stunning cottage , by far the best fie star EVER in the world! Thank you so very much Diane & Andrew for making our double celebration even better - our magical trip on the Flying Scotsman with & the folks just the icing on the cake. See you both again - until then!
Another wonderful stay in this luxurious cottage. Everything you need and Diane and Andrew so helpful and warm. Thank you.
What a wonderful find - heaven on earth! We've had a truly lovely stay in your beautiful cottage. We love Bishopdale and have so enjoyed exploring the Dales. We'll be back! Thank you so much for your warm welcome & helpful tips. The food at Berry's is cracking & DO go to Brymore for fab ice cream!
Another wonderful few days in your delightful barn. Your hospitality is quite amazing and you even arranged for snow on this visit! The Dales looked amazing. Can't wait to see you again in 2017. Fondest beset wishes, Lynne & John. xx
Our first holiday in the 'Dales'. A truly memorable week. The Byre has been exceptional accommodation, the best we've ever stayed in. Amazing scenery, walks and weather this week. Diane & Andrew are warm, friendly hosts who know how to spoil their guests. Thank you both - we wish you well for the future.
Impressed with your interview on Radio 4 and even more so impressed with your hospitality and this gorgeous cottage. Everything perfect - thank you - we will be back xx
Our 9th visit to The Byre & a complete delight as always! Thank you Diane & Andrew for your amazing hospitality, gorgeous cottage and all the little extras that are waiting for us when we arrive. You even arranged for wall to wall sunshine - something we are definitely not used to in the Dales. Can't wait to see you both again in the autumn and thank you, thank you yet again.
Returning guest for the third time. Perfect as always. Diane and Andrew at the perfect host. Thank you for another wonderful stay.
Our second stay here. We have had a wonderful week, so many places to visit. We felt very welcome, more like friends than guests. Ate in the Street Head Inn - very good food, certainly didn't come out there hurry. More place to visit when we hopefully return next year.
As 5 star gold cottage owners ourselves, it takes a lot to impress us - we are impressed. Congratulations Diane!
Beautiful luxury cottage! We have stayed in a lot of cottages, usually in the Peak District, but because we wanted to stay somewhere special for our silver wedding anniversary, we chose The Byre and we are so pleased we did. This the best cottage we have stayed in.
Our second stay at The Byre and still blown away by the cottage. Had a fantastic week. Area is stunning. Food in the local pubs is amazing. Weather great. See you soon.
Another fantastic few days at The Byre. The warm welcome, excellent accommodation and exploring the Dales has set us up for 2019! A lunch stop at The Churchmouse, Barbon, near Kirkby Lonsdale was very enjoyable.
Unforgettable weekend! Truly relaxing in every way. Thank you for letting us share your wonderful home. Already planning our return x
The Byre is a great credit to Diane & Andrew. Thank you both. We both feel so relaxed & could stay forever! Had a wonderful week celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary . The weather has been very kind to us and we have explored and walked miles - mostly from the front door! It has all been excellent. Thank you again xxx
Thank you Andrew and Diane for a great stay in The Byre. It never disappoints. Everything just perfect, even the weather has been good. We have already booked for next year which says it all!
Another amazing stay. We absolutely love the place. We really don't want to leave. We'll be back xx
Second visit and just as welcoming! Thank you Diane and Andrew - we appreciate the trouble you take and how much effort you put in. A thoroughly relaxing week - so much so that one of us fell asleep in one of the fields nearby! See you next year :)
Wonderful cottage and welcoming and helpful hosts made this a relaxing and refreshing break for us. Would recommend lots of walking in the dales; Street Head Inn; the Saddle Room and John Baghdad's cafe on the square (Masham). Ṃran Taing.
We can only repeat what others have said. Perfection! We have had a lovely few days staying here in such a picturesque area. Beautiful, comfortable and so peaceful! Thank you. Good fish and chips at the 'Chippie' in Hawes.
What a delight to be the first guests back in The Byre. Weather magnificent. Great walks every day. Thank you once again Diane & Andrew for all your hard work that enabled us to have a great time once again at The Byre.
Another perfect stay in a perfect cottage. Thank you Diane, Andrew and Rachel for your hospitality and attention to detail.
The wonderful Dales, the incomparable accommodation - what more could anyone want for an enjoyable holiday. Thank you Diane & Andrew.
Another enjoyable stay at The Byre - a luxurious and well thought out cottage in a beautiful location. We thought that 'Scarecrows' at Kettlewell were fantastic, such a lot of thought and work had done into the village display! Thank you Diane & Andrew for such a warm welcome! Kiplin Hall, near Catterick, is well worth a visit. Interesting house, good walks & beautiful gardens.
Another fabulous holiday at The Byre. Good weather & only one day of rain. Diane and Andrew perfect hosts. Can't wait to return!
What an absolutely stunning cottage, beautifully restored in a perfect location. It certainly won't be our last break here! There is absolutely everything you can think of here in the cottage for your use. Diane and Andrew have thought of everything. Lovely welcome gifts of freshly baked bread, real coffee, jam, cheers and the wine much appreciated. Thank yo. We'll be back x
A luxurious cottage with everything in it and more. Spotlessly clean with hosts who go that extra mile to make your stay more enjoyable. Lovely gesture by Diane to take us to a wine tasting & bring us back. Lovely part of the world and so much more still to explore. We have had a wonderful time & will be back.
Another wonderful stay in a perfect cottage which has it all and is a real pleasure to stay in. Expert hosting provided as before. We will be back again - winter we think!
We've had a wonderful relaxing break in a first class cottage. We didn't want for anything (apart from being able to stay longer!!). The quality of the cottage, the views and the owners can't be beaten. So much so that we've immediately booked for next year. Thank you Diane & Andrew - looking forward to returning already.
Visit number 5 to The Byre and every one gets better! Despite the 'horizontal rain' we have had an amazing few days and absolute rest in your wonderful cottage. The Christmas decorations are an absolute delight! Roll on our next visit in 2019. xx
Another wonderful stay in this perfect cottage - warm and luxurious. Will be back again and again.
This is a 10 star cottage! We've had a brilliant weekend & will definitely return. Many thanks to Andrew and Diane for making The Byre a perfect place to stay. The Black Bull at Moulton is a good place for a meal.
What can we say that hasn't been said before. Superb accommodation, wonderful hosts, fantastic setting. We will be back. Thank you Diane & Andrew. You're simply the best ... better than all the rest. xx
I don't know how we've managed to leave it so late to discover this lovely area. The cottage has been a treat to come back to after a day out. Thank you so much for your attention to detail and all your help. Yorkshire Trike Tours was a highlight among many memories.
What we were going to write has been written many times before in this book and can only reiterate what everybody has said. PERFECTION! Thank you Andrew and Diane
Another wonderful time at this amazing place. Great welcome as always from Diane and Andrew. Second time at The Byre. Got in some great walks, managed Pen-y-Ghent and a great walk from Pateley Bridge to Brigham Rocks (circular). Weather has been great for walking and only a little rain. Great days out in Harrogate, Ripon, Richmond, Grassington. Best meal at the White Lion in Cray and the Wensleydale Heifer, also the Sandpiper Inn in Leyburn. Stunning as always. Thank you so much Diane and Andrew. See you soon.
Again, we have had the most perfect stay for our 40th wedding anniversary. Thank you for everything to make our stay so gorgeous. Looking forward to next time xxxx.
We arrived in the most wonderful weather and will never forget the lovely warm welcome we received from Diane & Andrew and our first sight of the fabulous Byre and beautiful garden. Thank you so much for allowing us to have such a wonderful week in the stunning Yorkshire Dales. A week we will never forget.
We have had a fabulous stay at The Byre celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary. It was much appreciated staying in a cottage of such a high standard, tastefully decorated and very comfortable - well worthy of its awards. The White Lion at Cray is an excellent place to eat. Thank you Diane & Andrew - you have thought of everything & to Diane for helpful advice on the business. We will be back xx
Our first visit to the Dales but it won't be the last! The Byre is exceptional & by far and away the best we've ever stayed in (and we've stayed in a few!); and we picked an excellent week too...just cold enough to light the fire and warm enough during the day to be out and about exploring. Thank you to Diane & Andrew for their attention to detail and their warmth.
Wow, amazing cottage - everything has been superb. Attention to detail first class. Normally stay at Inglenook (would highly recommend too!), but this cottage is unique. Great weekend. Thanks Diane, Andrew & Pippa - your hospitality is legendary!
A lovely weekend break in the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Everything you could ever want or need. Perfection! Thank you.
Perfect place to stay. The Byre is very well appointed with great attention to detail. A place to return to. Thank you.
Superb again in every way, facilities, hospitality and this year, even the weather. Many thanks.
Absolutely fab. Can't fault anything. Best cottage we've ever stayed in (and we've been to a lot!!). Thank you so much Andrew & Diane for everything and for our wine & card for our 25th anniversary. We'll definitely be back & totally recommend. x
What a beautiful cottage. The finish is outstanding and a real credit to Andrew and Diane who are the most welcoming hosts. Thank you so much. Can't wait to come back!
Excellent cottage, all the facilities lived up to & beyond our expectations. Christmas decorations made it feel like Christmas already. Diane & Andrew are the perfect hosts, both friendly and very helpful.
First impressions - wow! A beautiful cottage in an idyllic place. So much attention to detail. Lovely welcome from Diane. This place has everything you could need and more! Came for a long weekend and didn't want to leave - will be back!! Try the chauffeur service - heaven! Thanks so much.
An exquisite cottage from which to explore the glorious Yorkshire Dales in their moody magnificence or sunny splendour. We'll be back!
A delightful way to come out of lockdown! Everything we need or wanted, provided for. A lovely way to celebrate my 55th birthday! The weather, the scenery, the cottage and our hosts were superb! Thank you so much. Hoping we will be able to return one day. (The wine, bread, cheese & chocolates such a lovely touch).
Our second stay at The Byre - what can we say but it is simply perfection! If you want to see the sights of North Yorkshire, don't stay here....because you won't want to go out!!! Diane and Andrew are the prefect hosts. The attention to detail is exceptional. Amazing value, superb quality. We will be back!
This is a beautiful cottage with everything you need for a perfect holiday (just like a home from home). Diane and Andrew are perfect hosts, and can't do enough to help. This has been a wonderful week in one of the best cottages that we have every stayed in. We will definitely be back.
Returned for third visit to this little haven of peace, luxury and warmth. Will definitely be back asap. Beautiful!!
Thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful cottage again. We love coming. We've had a lovely week. The weather was good too. You have been so kind and caring - many thanks for the loan of your wheelchair etc. It was a great help & much appreciated. Will see you again. Thank you x
After many, very happy, stays here we've run out of superlatives to describe the cottage & the welcome from Diane and Andrew. It's just our favourite place to stay and relax, wonderful accommodation in fabulous location, and stellar hosts. We love it.
Another glorious break away from it all! We love staying in your cottages as you feel at home the moment you walk through the door. Everything has been provided for a truly relaxing stay. Thank you again!
Wow! What an amazing cottage and what a perfect weekend of relaxing. Thank you so much for your fabulous hospitality. Cannot wait to return!
Peaceful, warm and comfortable. Wonderful local walking. Loads of history & time to 'stand and stare'. Kindness and friendliness from Diane and Andrew - even to meeting us with umbrellas when we arrived in the rain. Thank you for a lovely 'home' to return to each day.
What a beautiful cottage in a lovely location and wonderful hosts. Enjoyed the walking and spectacular views over the dales. Thank again to Diane & Andrew - we hope to return soon!
Our first stay at The Byre - a beautiful cottage - immaculate - we have had a totally relaxing stay - warmly welcomed by Diane & Andy - and a lift on Saturday to the restaurant by Andy was a great help! We will be back! xx
Our fourth visit to this fabulous luxury cottage. The perfect place to relax. Diane & Andrew the perfect hosts.
Our second visit and again enjoyed staying in your beautiful cottage. You can't beat the magnificent scenery in the Dales. We hope to return. Thank you.
What can we say, a fabulous weekend. Wonderful cottage, everything we expected and more. Thank you Diane and Andrew for your warm welcome. We will be back!
Had a lovely week despite some rain. The Dales Museum at Hawes worth a visit. Visited Aysgarth Falls, impressive. Bolton Castle a good outing as well. Second visit here. Lovely relaxing cottage, looks and feels luxurious. Thanks must go to Diane and Andrew.
Absolutely beautiful! with everything you could want and more. Luxury stay and amazing bathroom! Only bad thing it that we have to leave! Thank you for making our honeymoon special. Can't wait to be back.
Fantastic stay at The Byre. Absolute PERFECTION. Everything you could possibly want is here! Cannot wait to return!! Many thanks Diane & Andrew x
A joy to return to admire the autumn colours in a truly beautiful part of the world. We simply couldn't pour enough praise on Diane and Andrew for their welcome and hospitality.
Excellent cottage - extremely high standard. Very tastefully decorated for Christmas. Diane & Andrew are outstanding hosts. Thank you Diane for chauffeuring us to the Wensleydale Heifer on New Years Eve. Hope to return later in the year.
Another wonderful stay in one of your beautiful cottages. Thank you. See you next year!
A return visit after 3 years. As always, everything perfect. Guests want for nothing. Andrew and Diane are the perfect hosts. Thank you both so much.
Just amazing, as always. Great weather and wonderful scenery with all the wild flowers and bird life. Revisited favourite walks & discovered several new ones. Hospitality and accommodation outstanding. Thank you.
Outstanding accommodation. Outstanding hosts. Outstanding scenery! Just perfect & can't wait for our next visit.
In every way this is a wonderful place to stay. We have had a great time visiting this beautiful area and relaxing in this absolutely superb cottage.
First time at The Byre, been to The Dairy and Inglenook, and this cottage is just perfect. Wonderful welcome from Diane & Andrew. Can't fault a thing. Wonderful! The Street Head Inn is a good place to eat and The White Lion at Cray is a must, food is exceptional, also the Sandpiper Inn at Leyburn is great. Lots of wonderful walks. Great one starting at Clapham to the Norber erratics, most lovely scenery. Many thanks Diane & Andrew. See you next year.
Fantastic cottage, location and hosts! We've really enjoyed our stay. Weather was kind too.
Lovely cottage, everything first class. We have had brilliant weather and have walked many miles!! Diane and Andrew are so helpful. We are back at Inglenook in February.
We have really enjoyed our break at The Byre. Even in the snow and ice the Dales are glorious. The cottage is so well equipped and cosy it was a pleasure to cook and snuggle up by the log fire.
Cottage was everything that we had hoped for - stunning. We cooked (even a full roast!) enjoyed cosy evenings with classic movies. Diane & Andrew were really helpful and friendly. Loved the fact we could leave the car and walk from the doorstep. Hope to return soon.
Our first time to The Byre and not be our last. The cottage is perfect, exceeding our expectation. Diane and Andrew were most welcome and considerate during our week here. Booking for same time next year.
Thank you Diane and Andrew - for your wonderful hospitality - a beautiful cottage in a glorious part of the world, and for laying on such wonderful weather - well worth the journey!
Has to be the best holiday cottage in the Dales & beautiful location. Party for 80 people as well! Thanks for a lovely stay.
The area is beautiful, the cottage is perfect and our hosts wonderful. Thank you.
Wow! What a lovely place to stay. We have stayed all over the country in numerous cottages - all beautiful & welcoming but this one beats them all hands down. Diane & Andrew are the best of hosts and The Byre is just superb. Thank you for a lovely stay and the Dales just keep on giving.
Wonderful, already looking forward to next year. We are coming back!
Our second visit and have booked for our third ... surely that says it all. Great cottage and warm welcome from Diane & Andrew. Thank you. Fantastic welcome tray which is greatly appreciated.
We have had a really enjoyable holiday. Been to many places and even got to see Rod Stewart on Tuesday! Concert was brilliant. We were lucky with good weather. Thank you for such a warm welcome. Hope to be back soon.
Such a beautiful place to spend New Year. Everything needed during our stay was catered for in the cottage and made us feel right at home. Clear skies and sun at this time of year meant plenty of sightseeing. Recommend using the books in the cottage to find the perfect route! Thanks for a great time.
Beautiful cottage, lovely area, fantastic hosts. Promises lots but delivers so much more!!
Beautiful cottage in fabulous location. Very friendly hosts. Thank you xx
We had a wonderful time here in the Dales, thanks in part to this amazing property run by an amazing couple.
Our 9th visit to The Byre and a complete delight as always! Thank you Diane & Andrew for your amazing hospitality, gorgeous cottage and all the little extras that are waiting for us when we arrive. You even arranged for wall to wall sunshine - something we are definitely not used to in the Dales. Can't wait to see you both again in the autumn and thank you, thank you once again.
May have been our first visit but it won't be the last! Stunning from start to finish - don't want to home.
Walking in the door of The Byre for our second stay immediately felt like home. The warmth of the fire, already lit, coupled with the warmth of Diane & Andrew's hospitality made for another magical visit. See you again next year!
Also our first time in The Byre and indeed our first time in the Dales. We loved every moment of the week, from the beautiful cottage to the outstanding Dales. Simply fell in love with the whole place and we had superb walks every day. It was so nice to come back to such a luxurious cottage every day. Genuinely sad to be going home! Thank you!!
The cottage is beautiful and the attention to detail is second to none. We came for the dark skies and although we only had one night it didn't disappoint! We saw the Milky Way for the first time. Diane's suggestions on places to go were spot on. We had a fantastic weekend. This is an astrophotographer's paradise. We can't wait to return! Thank you x
Visit number 4 - they just get better and better! Than you both for EVERYTHING!! Can't wait to visit again in the autumn!
We have had a super week in a super area staying in a super cottage. The cottage is lovely, cosy and comfortable. Diane & Andrew have been great hosts adding hugely to our holiday. We will be back to continue our Dales Adventure next year. Thank you!
We are that rare species of visitor. First timers. We hadn't been here a day before we were plotting our return. The combination of the location and The Byre is a magical one. Lots to explore next time!
Visit number 9 to The Byre! As wonderful as all the other visits. With the heavy rain the waterfalls have been spectacular! The curlews and baby lambs are a delight. Roll on our next trip to your amazing cottages. Thank you both.
We don't want to go home! The Byre is simply fantastic! There are not enough superlatives to describe the quality, elegance and sheer delight of this wonderful cottage. Hosts Diane & Andrew are superb. Nothing is too much trouble, so attentive in every way. Puts other so called 5 star establishments to shame. We will definitely be back!
We have had an amazing few days, the cottage is perfect in every way, and we hope to return soon. Thank you Diane and Andrew for a lovely stay xxx
We've had a perfect week. Weather lovely. Cottage superb. Managed a few long walks. Visited the 'Forbidden Corner'. What a great day out and lots of fun. Fabulous. Thank you Diane for welcome us 'home' again. We will see you again next year.
We've stayed in many cottages throughout the country & this is by far the best of all. It is evident that much consideration was given to providing such excellent accommodation. We've thoroughly enjoyed our stay here amidst such glorious scenery & were very lucky to have such brilliant weather. Thank you Diane & Andrew for all your help.
Our second visit to The Byre aka 'Paradise!' We leave once again with wonderful memories of a very special place and people. Thank you so much. xxx
Our second pre-Christmas stay in The Byre. We have had a lovely relaxing few days as everything is perfect in this beautiful cottage - can't wait to return. Thank you Diane & Andrew. See you in April x
A poem ... Although the weather has been dire, we've been so happy within The Byre. A peaceful Christmas and New Year too, our festive wishes all came true. So thank you for our splendid stay, happy memories of every day. To our friends we'll tell our tales ... of a special 'Cottage in the Dales'. x
A return visit, this time to 27 degrees & sunshine! Yorkshire looked even better! The Byre is just as we remembered, superb with the best quality of fittings and comfort that we have experienced in a holiday home. Diane & Andrew have an eye for detail & the importance of 'customer care' that is exceptional. Thank you!
What a magical place this is! Truly stunning. Diane & Andrew are wonderful hosts and make you feel so welcome. Can't wait to return! xx
Our first time in The Byre after staying in Inglenook - it is a beautiful cottage and the award is well deserved. We have had a fantastic, relaxing stay and are already planning our return. Thank you Diane & Andrew for all the little extras, especially the champers!! See you in April. xx
