We have just got back from an amazing weekend at the old corn store. The views are lovely and aswell so are all the animals. One of the geese came in the lodge and made himself at home :) the under floor heating was a bonus aswell and the complimentary bottle of bubbly on arrival was enjoyed in the hot tub. Was a great weekend from start to finish :)
We had a very relaxing time at the Old Corn Store. The owners were there to greet us when we arrived (and were available to contact when we had any questions), and it was a nice touch to have some bubbly and milk/tea bags in the kitchen when we got in. There were lovely views, and the hot tub was amazing (it got used a lot!).
The WiFi was virtually nonexistent though, not sure if it was better in any of the other holiday cottages - in ours we could rarely get connection and when we did it was really weak. Would be good to have a WiFi booster or something.
The under floor heating was nice, it was set a bit warm when we got in but we turned it down and it was nice and pleasant.
Our dog loved it, he enjoyed the field but wasn’t too sure about the geese! There were lots of dog friendly places to visit nearby, such as Hardcastle Craggs, which was good.
Overall we would definitely recommend this place to stay.
As we are both pensioners found this cabin too far to walk to shops or pubs because of the very steep banks, had to use car for any trip out. Joan the owner gave us a lift to train station for a steam railway trip then picked us up again.
Small cabin but everything u need is there including a private hot tub which was used daily. Joan brought us hens, duck and even an emu egg each. Animals in abundance, the friendly owners Jo & Stu took us around to feed the feed the alpacas and donkeys, see the pigs, emus geese, hens etc. Jo even brought one of the baby emu into the cabin for us to pet, great to see it scampering around.
The peacocks came around the front of the cabin every day, and enjoyed the heat from the hot tub, the turkey came and settled at your feet so u could rub his head. One of the farm cats adopted us for the week coming in daily for a feed (or two) then settling down on the settee with us, going to bed with us, exiting out of the window early morning.
Easy commute to POIs, possibly the best place to stay for animal lovers.
Me and my boyfriend stayed at the old corn store in February for a relaxing getaway for our anniversary/valentines day. The only reason I am not giving this place 5* is because the road down to the cottage is hardly road worthy and not good for cars suspensions as there were pot holes everywhere but if taken slowly it was ok. The only other criticism I have was the temperature in the cottage. Even though it was cold outside as it was still winter, inside was absolutely boiling and we weren't allowed to alter the temperature (underfloor heating) in the living room as it would affect the water so it was just far too hot. I ended up opening all doors and windows just to get some air in. Other than that, the place was lovely and the hot tub was amazing. The people who owned the cottage were very friendly and left us with a bottle of bubbly, milk and some other goodies. The bed was very comfy and the kitchen was well equipped to make meals in. The views were lovely too from the cottage. It is quite close to malham cove so we went there for a walk one day. I would definitely return.
The Old Corn Store is a great quality property in relaxing farm surroundings. We love the entertaining menagerie of animals on the site. We enjoyed our visit in July 2015 so much that we returned in July 2016! There's lots to do in the surrounding area, the steam train from Keighley to Haworth is a splendid day out. The best part of our stay was being able to relax in the private hot tub each evening, whatever the weather.
