About Ewe Time Holiday Barn

Ewe Time Holiday Barn is due to open in 2020 after a major renovation project, providing self-catering accommodation for 20 (to 24) people in the north of England.

Nestling at the foot of one of our farm’s large fields close to picturesque moorland, it is the perfect location for a short break, longer holiday, family celebration, or friends’ reunion. We can also host functions, events, activities, retreats, school trips and corporate team-building.

The barn dates back to 1779 and is part of Brook Farm, owned by the Wilson family, who have reared cows, sheep, pigs and hens in the Lancashire village of Kelbrook for more than 100 yearsphoto 1. Guests can cuddle our friendly farm animals in our petting area and collect freshly laid eggs for breakfast!

We are conveniently situated just 10 minutes from the M65, between the historic bustling market towns of Colne in Lancashire and Skipton in North Yorkshire which boast plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs.

We have rolling open countryside and scenic public footpaths right on the doorstep, plus a wonderful gastro-pub within spitting distance!

Kelbrook is slap bang on the Pennine Bridleway (a National Trail), is six miles from the Forest of Bowland, (designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), nine miles from the Yorkshire Dales (a National Park), and three miles from the Pennine Way (another National Trail).

The magnificent mountains of the Lake District (a Unesco World Heritage site) are just over an hour’s drive away, as are the popular cities of Leeds and Manchester. Haworth, home of classic authors the Brontë sisters, is 13 miles away.

We are only one mile from the Leeds-Liverpool Canal with its flat, traffic-free towpath suitable for bikes, buggies and wheelchairs.

People who love climbing hills are in for a treat – our district of Pendle boasts its very own Three Peaks; Weets Hill (400m), Boulsworth Hill (518m) and the magnificent Pendle Hill (557m), famed for its legendary witches.
