Notes on accommodation: Whilst fitting out the barn we have tried very hard to make it the sort of place that we would like to stay in. We have included things which are important to us - like lovely sheets and towels and a stylish kitchen and bathroom (and no country cottage chinz!). However, as we will be neighbours, should you think of anything that you need you can just ask and we will do our best to sort it out for you. Having said that, we want our guests to feel the benefit of the the privacy & seclusion of Clough Wood, so we would absolutely leave you to our own devices, unless you need our help.

We also have 3 fields, which have a footpath running through them, up towards Thurstonland Village.

Cleaning & fresh sheets & towels available if stay is more than one week. Other: Entrance lobby with antique bureau and comfy armchair. Row of hooks and plenty of space for wellies and walking boots.

Beautiful barn conversion in idyllic setting overlooking the moors

Beautiful, tastefully decorated barn conversion,situated near the pretty village of Thurstonland. The property overlooks the moors and is ideal for people who enjoy walking, or just sitting outside in the garden and enjoying the views.

Great Chill holiday

  • 5 of 5

Wanted for nothing and house very comfy and stylish. Ordered a home cooked meal for night one which was delicious, and the farm shop hamper was packed full of goodies, all of which were consumed at some point during our stay. Great walks locally in all directions, and every climb is rewarded with a stunning view. Very peaceful, and have returned home chilled and refreshed.

Lovely barn with gorgeous furnishings, quiet country location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the barn for one week. Luckily the weather was great so we had lots of country walks to the local pub! We were visiting friends and family nearby and this was the perfect place to come back to - beautiful furnishings, everything you could need in a quiet location. Thank you for a lovely stay. Recommend rose and crown, lovely walk from the barn and dog friendly. Yorkshire sculpture park and Bolton Abbey is definitely worth a visit and Yummy Yorkshire Denby Dale tea room.

Fabulous stay at the Barn

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Barn from August 15 - 21 with our two grown sons. It was a perfect location in close proximity to several lovely, small villages and within an hours drive to York, Manchester and Liverpool for day trips. The barn was rustic from the outside but had all the comforts of home with modern amenities, a great layout, lots of natural light and spectacular views. Rebecca was wonderful to correspond with and addressed our every need. Our only complaint was the laneway which had several large, deep ruts. We would highly recommend the Barn and would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful barn in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The barn is perfect, so much attention to detail, it’s stunning. We felt at home immediately. Max and Rebecca were on hand if we needed anything, but left us to enjoy a peaceful break. Our first stay but definitely not the last!

Stylish barn conversion. Friendly helpful people.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great short stay (4 days) at Rebecca and Max’s place. They were very helpful and easy to contact. The barn conversion has been done very well with lots of stylish but practical features. Great kitchen and shower/bathroom. Wonderful location. Will hopefully be able to visit again.
