Ewe Time Holiday Barn is due to open in 2019 after a major renovation project, providing self-catering accommodation for approximately 18 to 24 people in the north of England.
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 years.
Nestling at the foot of picturesque moorland, it is the perfect location for a short break, longer holiday, family celebration, friends’ reunion, school trip or corporate team-building event.
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.
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.
Please note this page is still being edited… more images and details will be added as the barn nears completion. The image below shows the hayloft of the old barn and an artist’s impression of what we hope the living room will look like….
Kelbrookers have been getting creative to commemorate Remembrance Day 2018. Andrea Slinger, of Harden Road, spent four weeks collecting, cutting and painting plastic bottles to make into a collage of poppies which has been placed near the roundabout on the main road. A two-minute…
We’re very excited to be receiving enquiries from people wanting to stay at the barn! We’re hoping to open before the end of 2019. And while we are now officially in autumn, the sun is still shining, and the record-breaking heatwave of summer 2018…
Here are some of the photos showing the progress of the transformation of the barn, and images from Brook Farm and the surrounding countryside. We can’t wait to add more as each part of the project is completed.
