Testimonials for Gill Beck Barn

FYI we had a lovely week at Gill Beck Farm.  The accommodation delivered on every aspect : large spacious rooms with comfortable beds and fantastic showers.  The kitchen was extremely well appointed and experimenting with cooking on the Aga was fun.  The garden surpassed our expectations with beautiful views over wonderful landscapes and enclosed with loads of space for the dogs. My only comment re garden was the table and chairs are tired (chairs are especially wobbly and feel like they may collapse) and a garden umbrella for some shade would have been nice. The hot tub we ordered was set up and ready to use when we arrived and Mark (the supplier)  was super helpful on ringing with instructions etc so I can highly recommend them as a linked preferred supplier to Rowley.  We booked via Rural Retreats but frankly I found you via Google searches. We have though already recommended you to loads of our friends.  The treats and basket of items you left for our arrival were lovely and actually if we had known they were there we would have ordered less off the Tesco delivery J  The location was perfect to relax in peace and quiet and watching the farmers cut the fields and the sheep antagonise the dogs J but within striking distance to The Lakes and Pennines etc. to see lots of the countryside and landmarks.  We lucked out with perfect week on the weather too.  All in all it was a 10 out of 10 stay for us and more then lived up to our expectations and would definitely book with you again.


“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.
