Beacon View Barn November 2018

Dear Liz and Danny.  Thank you so much for another fantastic week in your beautiful barn. This is our fourth time now and it really is starting to feel like a second home! The boys have had an amazing week and don't want to leave.  We have packed a lot in - lovely walks to the Moors National Park Centre and the Cycle Hub.  Whitby Abbey illuminated on...

Beacon View Barn October 2018

Yearly gathering of old friends, from all over, Birmingham, Leicestershire, Cumbria, Worcestershire and Northumberland. Had the pleasure of occupying the barns. Beautiful, homely accommodation in stunning setting. Just what we needed to relax and reboot our batteries. During our week, we only had reason to venture out once for supplies. Lovely walks all...

Dale View Barn September 2018

It's always a gamble coming back to a place where you have experienced a wonderful holiday 〰️ but our second visit to Dale View hasn't disappointed at all! Same lovely welcome, same fabulous accommodation and the same attention to little details that we appreciated so much last time. Our friends from Oz particularly appreciated the hoisting of the...

Beacon View Barn September 2018

Dear Liz and Danny. Many thanks for allowing us to stay in your wonderful barn. Beacon View is by far the best holiday let we have stayed in and you could not ask for a more picturesque setting. Our first visit to the area but we will definitely be back. Highlights were Staithes, Helmsley, Hutton le Hole and the Cliff Tramway at Saltburn. George will miss...


We have had the most relaxing week here in Beacon View! a beautifully appointed cottage, it has everything we needed for the week with fantastic enclosed garden space and spectacular views. We particularly enjoyed Runswick Bay as a beach with good facilities, perfect sand for the children and a chance to search for fossils! The North York Moors Centre in...


Thank you so much Liz and Danny for allowing us to share your beautiful barn and views. We've had an amazing time, loved every minute. The barn itself is fantastic - we go away to a lot of barns and lodges all over England and Wales - this is the best we have ever stayed in, just really don't want to leave. The views are amazing and loved seeing the...


Wonderful, idyllic setting for our summer holiday. Thank you so much Liz and Danny for making us feel so welcome; the girls loved feeding the doves!  We would highly recommend Dalby Forest (thank you for the car park pass) and the birds of prey centre in Thirsk - a bit of a drive but well worth it to spend half a day. Thank you again!


This was a little different to our normal family holidays, but was one of our favourites.The first time we have been on holiday with our dog Max and he also thoroughly enjoyed it. We went on lots of walks such as Helmsley to Rievaulx Abbey and back. Great Ayton to and up Roseberry Topping then down and round Captain Cooks Monument.  Runswick Bay to...


A very special place to spend our 1st wedding anniversary, and a beautiful, warm, friendly welcome back from Liz and Danny. The cottage is a dream and the setting idyllic. Thanks for welcoming Muffin too.


What a lovely relaxing place, just felt calm as soon as I got here. What a view and only the sounds are sheep and birds. The cottage is a delight and has been great for our disabled person who has enjoyed the stay very much.The dog (Zander) has loved the garden and we enjoyed having breakfast outside at the beginning of the holiday. Enjoyed several pubs,...


Lovely characterful accommodation with fantastic views. We enjoyed walking to Castleton, Danby Castle and Danby church. We loved the moors and the views. Visited Goathland and walked to the Mallyan Spout and Beckhole. Good meal at The Board Inn. We've had a great time. Thank you.


Thank you Liz and Danny!  We've had a lovely time in your beautiful barn. A wonderful location and fantastic weather! We've enjoyed meals at The Lion on the Moor and The Board Inn My favourite place to visit was Runswick.  We love Yorkshire! x

Beacon View Barn July 2018

Dear Liz and Danny.  Thank you for a wonderful holiday! The barn is beautiful and we loved sitting out on the patio. Everything was great for the little one too. Thank you also for the warm welcome and hospitality throughout our stay. We enjoyed our days out Robin Hood's Bay, Castle Howard and Whitby (great farm shop and fishmongers for the BBQ!) but the...


This has been the perfect base for our family to celebrate our daughter's wedding nearby. The cottages are beautiful and we have had everything we needed here, comfortable and relaxing, we have all enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you for the Prosecco and cake, lovely touches - we will definitely recommend.


We had a super week based in Dale View Barn which is a stunning property beautifully converted, furnished and cosy. The location is ideally located so that we were able to visit Nunnington and Ormesby Manor Houses, Whitby, Scarborough and the lovely village of Staithes. We also managed a visit to Eden Camp Museum which had us enthralled with the...


Dear Liz and Danny. Many thanks for such a wonderful time in the most beautiful setting EVER. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this stunning cottage. Being a permanent wheelchair user I have found it very suitable for accessibility we will definitely be back. Thank you once again.


Thank you for a wonderful stay. The views are so stunning and we loved having breakfast outside by the BBQ overlooking the Dale. We had a great time boating at Ruswarp, and a delicious meal at 'Bridge Cottage Bistro' Sandsend. The walled garden at Helmsley was spectacular and the cafe serves excellent food. Great pub food at Sinnington the Fox and Hounds....


Many thanks Liz and Danny for a smashing stay at Beacon view. Beautiful surroundings, terrific accommodation and wonderful warm and friendly welcome. We had a great time and look forward to returning. PS George and Jess said they'd like to come back too (woof woof) PPS The only improvement would be to have greeted by the sound of the ukulele!


Everything we could possibly need ; thank you.  We have had a very busy week, there is so much to do. A trip to Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Saltburn. Amazing waves in Saltburn, great watching the surfers. The highlight for our grand daughter has been the Moors Centre and the climbing wall, and the steam train at Grosmont, and afternoon tea in the village. We...

Beacon View Barn April 2018

Dear Liz and Danny. Thank you for a wonderful stay in your amazing 5* Beacon View.  Few trips in life are as good as they look in the pictures, Beacon View was even better. Thank you again, we hope we will be able to visit again in the future.    Wiltshire

Dale View Barn April 2018

We've had a lovely few days staying here just the two of us. The barn couldn't have been more comfortable and well equipped, and thank you Liz for making us so welcome. We went on a great walk from the Cicerone North York Moors book, which goes practically past the door, and a great day out in Whitby with fish and chips on the beach. We're very sad to have...

Heather View Barns April 2018

Many thanks to Liz and Danny for a week in your wonderful barns. So warm and comfortable with all the equipment anyone would need!  Visited the statue on the Moor- fabulous. Also had a great family meal at the new Star Inn the Harbour Whitby - Absolutely delicious.  Would love to return - hopefully with a bit better weather! Thanks again.

Dale View Barn March 2018

Lovely week in a stunning property - beautifully converted and furnished and warm! Utility room is a real bonus.  Lucky week with the weather and able to get lots of walking, muddy in the woods but generally fine. Spring is late this year and daffodils not out in Farndale yet but should be good after Easter. The recently opened cliff edge section of the...

Dale View Barn February 2018

Thank you Liz and Danny for a lovely weekend away.  The house was so cosy and well equipped and we enjoyed relaxing by the fire in the evenings.  We enjoyed a fab pub lunch and watched the rugby at the Fox and Hounds pub.  The sprinkling os snow made everything even more beautiful.  Thanks again.  Group of friends from  Lincolnshire.
