Testimonials for Gill Beck Barn

“Lovely place, great outdoor area with nice views. Ideal for family time away or quiet weekend with friends”


This has been our 7th stay at one of the cottages owned by the Rowley Estates. We are never disappointed and this time was no exception. We stayed at Gill Beck Barn this time and it was fabulous. So relaxing, lots of space to cook and socialise together in the large open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge. We stayed during the midst of storm Ciara and were really snug at the cottage. The outdoor garden area was perfect for our dogs and for us to do some of our own exercise when we couldn’t go too far on the Sunday c/o the weather. The small village of Melmerby is lovely and we did a great 7.5 mile walk direct from the cottage. The whole Rowley team are so helpful and make our stay so relaxing. The hamper basket, wine and food in the fridge on arrival, is always so welcome and gratefully received. Thanks again!


The property was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The decor and furnishings are really comfortable and all the equipment is of good quality. Great comfortable beds and bed linen ensured a good nights sleep. The Barn is in a rural location about 1/2 a mile from the village of Melmerby where there is a pub, small shop and a bakery. There is some great walking close by on the Pennines and it's only about a 30 minute drive to the Lake District hills. On arrival we found that the owners had left a brilliant welcome hamper with lots of soil treats and essential such as milk and tea bags plus a lovely loaf of bread. Thank you very much. We have never stayed anywhere and had such a great hamper! We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would recommend it highly.


We had a fantastic long weekend at Gill Beck Barn celebrating my youngest sons 21st birthday. The barn was extremely comfortable and was equipped with everything we could possibly need. It is such a beautiful area with stunning scenery and lovely walking, plus some charming villages with great pubs. Our only slight disappointment was that the pub in Melmerby was closed for our weekend!
You really have thought of everything in your property and we were all very impressed and we’d certainly love to return either to Gill Beck Barn our one of your other properties. The web site is also very impressive and easy to navigate.
