Interaction with guests
Barry and Margaret are very happy to chat and advise on local facilities, things to do etc. (Or alternatively let guests totally do their own thing) . One of us will generally meet people when they arrive and do a quick show round - we can generally then tell if people want to chat or be left in peace! We also leave guests our mobile numbers and encourage guests to contact us ,should they need any help whatsoever.

We also usually check by text that all is well at some point during the guests stay.

How to find us

The cottage is located at YO30 1AY on High Moor Lane, a 5 mile long country road (parallel with the A19) joining the villages of Shipton & Tollerton

The cottage is accessed down a long drive with a very small wooden name sign on the fence at the road end reading “The Owl Barn”. In the dark there is a luminous red circle road sign located high in the tree at the drive end. If you see a farm sign for Ember Hill on the other side of the road you have gone past us!!

Follow the drive around to the rear of the property where you will see “The Owl Barn Cottage”. Please park on the concrete...
