"A lovely, relaxing place to celebrate our Golden wedding anniversary, Very much appreciated the solitude and space. Enjoyed a mixture of walking, mountain biking, lounging and hot tubbing.."
Terill Family, Heswall, April 2010
"My wife turned 40 this year and I needed the perfect place to gather a group of close friends, Bookilber Barn was it! Local to where we live, set the right distance out of Settle town, stunning building with exceptional attention to detail and quality of build. The amenities were everything we required under one roof. I organised a chef to cook a meal one night for the group and the local beauty therapists visited the barn to Pamper the girls while the boys went clay pigeon shooting nearby. All in all excellent value, a very memorable weekend that we are still talking about it, highly recommended and a must if your thinking of booking."
Matt Hardy, Bradford, April 2010.
"The barn surpassed our expectations by some considerable margin. We knew it was going to be special but the location, furnishings, decor and attention to detail are second to none. Combined with beautiful weather and good company and the weekend was perfect. I have already recommended the barn to a number of our friends and can't wait to return".
Darren Stega-Jones, Brighouse, April 2010
"Well we managed to stay away for 4 months- and then could nt resist any longer! This time we brought husbands and children and still had a fantastic time! There is something for everyone here. We’ve had a relaxing and fun weekend- with lots of laughs,food & drink. The children and adults have loved the hot tub. We have ventured out over the moors this time too and taken in more of the beauty of this stunning location. Thanks again Dave , Emma & Rachel. There is talk of this being an annual family event from now on......"

Hunt Family, Pocklington, March 2010
"Since coming to see the barn last year we we have been planning my 40th Birthday , and what a great place to spend it. Everyone who came wants one... The barn that is!! Its been amazing for partying and chilling by ourselves. The hot tub was a huge hit, a run of death to and from it, The footprints in the snow told the story well. Thanks again we will return, Maybe before I am 50!!"

Roger & Anne, Monk Fryston Leeds, December 2009
"I have had such an absolutely amazing hen weekend with my loveliest special ladies. The house is just fantastic-we’re all so impressed by the decor and attention to detail- the more you look the more you see- it is just amazing!! We didn’t all know each other when we came but have all left as friends. Thank you so much Dave and Emma for all your help. We could not have chosen a more perfect place for such a special weekend- It looks good on the website but the place is so much larger and more luxurious than we had imagined. There may be a few dents on the floor where our jaws have dropped. The hot tub and gorgeous bathrooms have been perfect for our pampering! Would definitely recommend getting the caterers in too. Very relaxing, fabulous views. We will be back!!"
Dianne & Hens, Marsden, November 2009
"It was quite possibly the longest road/track to “nowhere” and it rained for 3 days but nothing whatsoever could detract from the quite superb refurbishment/re-build job you have undertaken. Simply Magnificent! If Carlsberg did barns......................................."
