5 things to love about The Hay Barn – North York Moors

The Hay Barn is one of our most popular large luxury cottages in Yorkshire.  It’s set in a picturesque little village in the North York Moors, just a few miles from Castle Howard.

With it’s fantastic leisure facilities, large open spaces and idyllic location, it’s a bit of a no brainer why this large holiday cottage is booked up months in advance every year.

Sleeping up to 10 people in total, it’s the perfect cottage for a celebration.  Just ask Rebecca Adlington – she stayed here recently with her family and said “the only fault we had with the Hay Barn was having to go home.  What a fabulous house!”

But in case you need any more convincing, here’s my top 5 reasons why you will love The Hay Barn holiday cottage…

5 things to love about The Hay Barn – Large Cottage North York Moors

Generous and comfortable bedrooms

Large en suite bedroom in The Hay Barn

All of the bedrooms in the Hay Barn are en suite, and all have very generous proportions.  Even if you are staying here with a family of 8, you will have space and room to really relax.  Take your pick from the huge ground-level bedroom with walk-in shower to one of the bedrooms with a luxurious mezzanine level for the bath…

Entertainment guaranteed

The games room at The Hay Barn

The Hay Barn comes complete with every conceivable luxury extra including (deep breath) a hot tub, sauna, gym, games room with Wii, table football and piano, WiFi, SKY TV, DVD player with films.  This large luxury cottage in Yorkshire even features a treatment room where you can arrange for the local therapist to come out and pamper you for the day…

See the best of the North York Moors

Steam Train on NYMR

The North York Moors is one of the most stunning landscapes in Yorkshire and the UK for that matter.  The Hay Barn holiday cottage is perfectly placed to be able to venture out and experience the very best of it.  You are within easy reach of Castle Howard, Helmsley, the heather-clad moors North of Pickering, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway… it’s all just a short drive away from this fabulous luxury holiday cottage.

Fine dining

The Star Inn, Harome

Some of the best restaurants and gastro-pubs in the North York Moors are within a few miles drive of the Hay Barn.  Enjoy dinner at The Star Inn at Harome, The Feversham Arms Hotel in Helmsley, The Durham Ox Crayke or the Michelin-starred Black Swan at Oldstead – some of the finest restaurants and gastro-pubs in Yorkshire and all within a few miles radius of this luxury large cottage.

Quintessentially Yorkshire

The Malt Shovel Hovingham

The Hay Barn is within walking distance to the charming little village of Hovingham.  I think one it’s one of the prettiest villages in the North York Moors and is the essence of what makes this place such a delight to visit.  There are a couple of village pubs – The Malt Shovel serves excellent food – a little tearoom, a post-office, a village green (complete with stream)… I think you get the picture.  It’s heavenly!


The Hay Barn is one of our celebration Yorkshire cottages set in the North York Moors.   It’s available to book for holidays and short breaks throughout the year, including the summer months.  And the hot-tub is always on!
