My mum, dog, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The coffee and brownies were a lovely surprise, and the both tasted great!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend these guys.


Beautiful converted barn with a stunning view. Even better than the photos. Great places to eat nearby.

We felt like we were in our own haven in Yorkshire.


We LOVED staying here. The views are incredible, the room was faultless and we had everything we needed and more!

We are already especially missing the Mochas from The Brownie Barn.

Love Brownies brownie with coffee

For those who don't want to venture too far, 200 metres down the lane you'll find the Brownie Barn, home to Love Brownies, whose individually baked brownies have won multiple awards.

This welcoming café is a great place for a bacon sarnie, Eggs Benny, avo on toast (Avo-cuddle) or even a champagne breakfast. Or treat yourself to a home cooked lunch with a beer or two.

Family cycling

For those looking for a more active escape, Howgill Barn offers the perfect base for an outdoor holiday in the Dales, whether on foot or taking to the roads on two wheels.

The barn is positioned on a path that leads directly to the River Wharfe and onto the Dales Way, which stretches for 80 miles from nearby Ilkley to Bowness-on-Windermere in Cumbria. Walks such as The Valley of Desolation and Troller's Ghyl are popular local rambles.



Gorgeous little barn perfect for a couple nights stay, stunning views over the scenic Yorkshire Dales!

Loved that it was dog friendly, the fire pit and plenty of walks from the doorstep.


Wonderful cosy hideaway with some quirkiness. Brilliant location in Wharfdale with walks from door.

Lee was an affable and helpful point of contact in the Brownie Barn (do go and say hi).


Such a beautiful place to stay.

We travelled as a family with our 7 year old and a small dog, the garden is perfect and safe for dogs, we had lovely weather so ate outside which was lovely as the views are to die for!

Ilkley town centre

Although Howgill sits in a completely rural and unspoilt setting, it's only 10 miles from the beautiful market town of Ilkley, and 20 miles from the bustling city of Leeds.

The villages of Appletreewick and Burnsall are within walking distance and here you can enjoy true Yorkshire hospitality in one of the local pubs. The Craven Arms at Appletreewick and The Red Lion at Burnsall both offer great pub grub in traditional surroundings.

Marshmallow toasting on a fire

If you'd prefer to make the most of the dark skies and stargaze in front of the fire pit once evening falls, then why not order a pizza from the nearby Brownie Barn and soak up the sounds of nature without leaving Howgill.
