Dusk on the limestone terraces in the Yorkshire Dales National Park
Tucked away in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales in the historic village of Kirkby Malham, Bull Barn cottage, a seventeenth century built stone barn, has been meticulously converted into a luxurious self catering holiday cottage.
While the exterior of the building has been sympathetically restored retaining it’s original character, the interior of the cottage has been completed to a very high contemporary standard with an open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge with wood burning stove. High ceilings with exposed oak and pine beams throughout the cottage reflect its historical nature. At the front of the cottage large patio windows open out onto a cobbled area with outdoor furniture.
To the rear of the cottage accessed via the lounge there is an additional bright airy summer living room. With full room-width concertinered french doors that open on to a rear patio and garden, for perfect summer days and easy alfresco dining. This area too has outdoor furniture and a BBQ.
Upstairs the barn has 2 double bedrooms and a twin bedroom, each with a small flat screen TV. One double has an en suite shower room while the other two rooms share a large family bathroom with sizable bath. The summer room has a large comfy sofa bed allowing more flexible sleeping arrangements or the property to sleep up to 8 people.
With numerous creature comforts including a large flat screen TV, DVD player and DVDs, Netflicks and audio system, Bull Barn cottage makes a perfect base for exploring the area with the option of returning ‘home’ and putting your feet up in style!
On the practical side in the utility room is a washing machine and tumble drier, extra storage space and a place for outdoor gear such as boots and jackets. Ideal for self-catering, the kitchen is designed with both enthusiastic cook and lover of convenience in mind. There are a range of ‘cook’s’ favourite utensils and other essentials such as dishwasher and microwave.

British Tourist Board ★★★★
Bull Barn holiday cottage is nestled in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales on a quiet lane in the charming village of Kirkby Malham. It is conveniently located for ambling along the river to neighbouring villages and local public houses, as well as more serious walking. The village itself is home to the beautiful 15th Century church of St. Michael the Archangel which is thought to house the church bells heard by Tom in the novelist Charles Kingsley’s “Water Babies”.
A mile further down the road, or a half hour stroll along the river, lies the village of Malham surrounded by some of the finest limestone scenery in Britain. The most impressive of these limestone features, created by the mid-craven fault, are the Malham Cove and Gordale Scar, both a short walk away from the village.
Malham was founded in the period 670-800AD although in the surrounding fields and fells lie the remains of much older settlements dating as far back as 5000BC. The history is rich and visible, from stone-age flints to the influence of Danes and Norsemen on place names and language to the modern landscape nurtured by generations of shepherds and farmers.
Kirkby Malham makes an ideal base from which to discover The Yorkshire Dales. In and around Malham alone you could spend several days exploring the limestone scenery and Tarn. Moving further afield numerous small villages offer their own unique charm, and historic towns such as Harrogate and York are close enough to visit for the day.
The area isn’t only known for its superb walks and hiking, although with trails such as the famous Pennine Way on your doorstep you might well spend your time ambling through this historic landscape. Other activities include cycling – along country lanes or take to the hills on a mountain bike, but if you prefer to explore the bridle ways on horseback then the local Trekking Centre is open throughout the year catering for all levels. A short walk from Malham, climbers can tackle some of the most demanding rock in Europe. Caving, paragliding and kiting are also found in the area.
The Yorkshire Dales is home to many fine eateries and public houses, with menus featuring traditional favourites to those offering more modern and eclectic dishes. Farm shops give you the opportunity to buy home grown produce or you could stock up at the Farmers Market in nearby Skipton.

“What a fantastic way to celebrate a 30th birthday weekend! Walked up Gordale Scar, ate in the local pub, and relaxed. I’m sure we’ll be back but we’ll be sure to stop the church bells ringing at 9 am on a Sunday!!!”
“Another wonderful week in your comfortable Bull Barn.”
“Great to be back. Bull Barn feels like home as soon as you walk in the door. The best place to be for a wonderful Christmas, long walks and local beers!”
“Loved it, loved it loved it. A ‘real’ home from home. Despite the awful weather we had a really good time, mainly due to the comfortable layout of the cottage in its secluded location. For once we made the right choice.”
