With ample opportunity for exploration, relaxation and plenty of luxury, this stunning property on the edge of the North York Moor provides guests with a lovely place to stay.

This beautiful barn conversion is situated just outside a pretty village in the North York Moors. With an outdoor hot tub, pretty courtyard garden and an impressive leisure suite included, it's a fabulous holiday cottage for those looking for something extra. And to top it off, there is a heavenly country pub within walking distance.

The charm of the old farm buildings have been preserved perfectly with the use of exposed wooden beams and brickwork, however, the interior has a classic contemporary finish. There are two large bedrooms, one with a large en-suite bathroom and the second with access to a wet room.

The cottage also features a lovely farmhouse kitchen and a very comfortable lounge/dining area complete with wood burner. Flagstone flooring with underfloor heating lends a stylish touch.

The south-facing courtyard and gardens feature a hot tub, patio and gas BBQ area, perfect for al fresco frolics in the warmer months. In the winter months, the wood burner and comfy sofas make for the perfect snug hideaway.

The cottage has its own exclusive hot tub and also shared access to some fantastic leisure facilities including a mini gym, treatment room, sauna and relaxation area. You'll also find a fully stocked games room with table tennis, pool and table football

The cottage is set in the rolling Howardian Hills in the western reaches of the North York Moors. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns. The very pretty village of Hovingham is just a 2-mile drive and features several pubs, a tea room and local store.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley (10 miles) is also close by and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering you'll find a fantastic day spa here - perfect for a little indulgence!

You're also close to Castle Howard (4 miles), York (20 miles) and the North Yorkshire coast (30 miles), so there is lots of choice for day trips.

The Stables were just perfect for our Christmas stay with our two teenage daughters and our two dogs. The owners left nothing to chance and our first experience of what was a truly quality luxury rural retreat will not be our last; we will be returning.

The Stables is a lovely barn conversion, really comfortable and clean. The owner left a hamper with tea, coffee and breakfast things, plus a bottle of wine which was really thoughtful. The garden is shared with another cottage but is laid out so we never felt overlooked when sitting out on the patio or in the hot tub. The games room is great for olRead moreder children and gym is small but well thought out. Hovingham bakery is worth a visit and The Grapes in Slingsby does amazing pizzas! Hide

Great location for visiting places not too far away. Felt immersed in the countryside with cowslips and birds aplenty. Short flat walks around and about for those who don't do big ones. Enjoyed watching the Red squirrels at the Arboretum just a few miles away. Travelled home with gaps filled with plants from the garden centre there and the HelmsleyRead more walled garden but pop up plant sales around too. Ate well in Hovingham at the hotel, carpeted to help those hard of hearing! Hide

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and the additional facilities of the games room, gym, sauna and hot tub are fantastic. The outside private space is a little limited and whilst the communal garden is nice and the screening helps break up and separate the two properties, it doesn't provide a lot of privacy.

Gorgeous barn conversion in a great location. The photos on the website dont really do it justice. The outside space is very thoughtfully planned out. You share the outside area with another barn but each has their own screened area for privacy, especially around the hot tubs.

Great walks from your doorstep especially to the pub in the neighbouring village which is a short walk across the fields. Hide

The Stables was a fantastic property with a central location close to amenities and activities. The property was clean and a welcome pack even provided with fresh bread, milk, tea, coffee etc I feel that the pictures of the property do not do it justice and it is far more idyllic in person. I would 100% recommend a stay here.
