“...easy to find, just look out for the grand ruined tower. Don’t rely on your sat nav though, you’ll end up in the middle of nowhere...”
Directions to the Barn from Bolton Abbey
Take the B6160 in the direction of Burnsall. (Please note there is a height limit of 10ft 9in through Bolton Abbey) Barden is about 3 miles from Bolton Abbey just after the "Strid" car park and before the turn for Appletreewick. Look out for the "Barden" sign on your left. 150 metres later on your right is a bus stop.
Turn right directly after that at the sign for the Priests House restaurant.
There is an occasional bus service between Ilkley and Grassington that passes by the barn. Taxis are quite expensive and to be honest cannot be relied upon.
Remember there is limited mobile phone signal at the barn....hurray!
The nearest pubs are in Appletreewick (The Craven Arms and New Inn) some one and a half miles away.....pretty dark to walk it though...
