While away hours simply staring out at the magical views across the Yorkshire Dales National Park from this enticing stone barn at Starbotton, 2 miles from the village of Kettlewell. Sleeping eight guests, the four-bedroom abode makes a wonderful Yorkshire retreat for an extended family, two families together or a group of friends eager to escape together.

Nestling at the foot of Great Whernside, nearby Kettlewell is home to dramatic landscapes and charming village pubs, as well as some of the best walks and cycle routes in the country. For avid walkers, the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is also within easy reach. The popular market town of Skipton, with its historic castle, is 16 miles away and spectacular Malham Cove, is 15 miles from the holiday home.

Step into a spacious entrance hall where you will find a handy area to hang coats and leave wellies. Two of the bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, and a family bathroom are also at this level, together with the elegant dining room, which has doors on to the garden so you can stroll out on warm days.

Venture upstairs to discover the beautiful lounge, with its high, vaulted ceiling, oak beams and revealed stonework. Light the wood burner in here to create a cosy ambience then settle down on the sumptuous seating to watch the Smart TV.

Head through to the fully equipped kitchen, where a central island with a breakfast bar makes a great spot to perch while the cook rustles up a home-cooked feast, then dine in here, down in the dining room or out in the sunshine.

A king-size bedroom, with a Smart TV, and a super-king size bedroom, which boasts a private balcony and fell views, are also at this level, together with another family bathroom.

For the ultimate games night, head out to the garden and discover a fantastic games room complete with multi-games table, with table tennis, snooker and air hockey, a full-sized bar with a wine and beer cooler and a Smart TV. There is another wood burner in here for chilly evenings.

When the sun is shining, relax out on the patio, firing up the BBQ on summer evenings and watching the children play on the grass. There is parking for two cars at the barn and space in the garage to store bicycles.

The picturesque village of Kettlewell (2 miles) is the perfect place to switch off and recharge. From the village you can enjoy walks alongside the River Wharfe or to the summit of Great Whernside. Further afield, the Yorkshire Three Peaks are all within 25 miles. After a long hike, refuel in one of the village’s cosy pubs or friendly tearooms. The historic town of Skipton makes a great day out. Wander amongst its cobbled streets and ancient buildings, before exploring the medieval castle or strolling through Skipton Castle Woods.

A well equipped house in a lovely location nearby a superb pub. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook for 8 people over the Xmas break. The beds and sofa were comfortable and we enjoyed the games room. The dining room is off the games room. We had some problems which although sorted quickly should have been picked up by the property managemeRead morent company ahead of our arrival. Saying that, it wouldn't put us off staying again as I'm sure that they will have taken our feedback on-board. Hide

We had a great stay at Oak Barn, which is situated in a brilliant location. It was perfect for walking from the door, with lots of public footpaths and the Dales Way close by. The cottage was well equipped, and although we found the beds really comfortable, the sofas were unfortunately the opposite for us! The cottage is lovely but needs a bit of TRead moreLC. Games room was fab! The local pub is just a minute away and Kettlewell is just 5 minutes drive or a couple of miles walk along the river. Hide

The cottage was lovely so peaceful and location is great for walks. The beds were really comfortable and felt very luxurious had a lovely sleep while there. I would say only think is water pressure downstairs made showering a little longer, but the upstairs bathroom was lovely and again had a luxurious feel to it. We would definitely stay again.

Really great property in a fabulous location. Really well equipped. Only improvements would be to make sure there was hand soap in all bathrooms, washing up liquid would be useful and so would the welcome logs that were missing. The games room was fantastic except no table tennis balls. We had to drive to Grassington to buy some.

Thank you for providing towels. As we were a last minute booking, we had to stop and buy towel sets for 6 people as everyone was travelling there from different UK locations. This was based on the information that we had to provide our own towels which we didnt need to and was an additional purchase not needed. We also didnt have the email with codRead moree for key safe.
