Our second visit just as good as our first.....

5 of 5
This is our second visit to the Barn in Thurstonland and nothing has changed in 3 years....! It has been maintained beautifully and looks just as good as it did 3 years' ago. Very tasteful decor - chic but understated..., high quality bed linens, throws and rugs. Rebecca and Max the lovely owners are just as helpful. The location is very rural but you are within walking distance (just about - maybe not if you have a toddler....) to 4 great pubs - all with different characteristics. Gorgeous views from the sitting room window. We are a family of 4 with a dog - it's very cosy but there is enough room for us all to relax, potter and play. It totally suited our purposes for visiting family in Huddersfield during our winter half term break. We are looking forward to spending a week in the summer at Rebecca & Max's new holiday let - Butts Farm just down the road - which we got a sneak preview of when we were there - it looks fabulous!!

Peaceful and quaint

5 of 5
Cosy studio with an awesome shower and a lovely firm bed. We walked for three hours and came back and cooked our own meal and everything we needed was available to hand. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend for a one or two night getaway to blow away the cobwebs.

Perfect

5 of 5
Red kite lodge is the perfect place to go to relax. The lodge is immaculate and is the most well equipped place I have stayed in. There's everything you need and more. The furnishing are to a very high standard and they haven't scrimped on anything. The owners are very friendly and communication was great, sending me details about arrival. I was that comfortable and cosy there, I didn't want to come home. Thanks Paul and Paula, I will definitely be back soon x
