A gorgeous, bijou bolthole, perfect for a romantic retreat. Set on private North Yorkshire grounds, you'll have access to long walks in any direction.
Perched overlooking green pastures with the distant hills of the North York Moors on the horizon, this former barn is an idyllic haven for couples. Reconnect with nature and embrace scenic walks across the countryside with a hipflask in your pocket. When it comes to thoughtful extra touches, the friendly owners have gone the extra mile with the welcome pack provided, and breakfast and dinner service can be arranged direct. Waggy-tailed visitors will also receive a warm greeting with their own dog pack brimming with treats and essentials.
Inside, the delightful space is decidedly English country cottage with a high vaulted ceiling, a feature timber beam and wooden flooring, yet the furniture is chic and contemporary. Functional style is the key when it comes to the kitchenette, which is cleverly incorporated into the overarching decor with painted cabinetry, marble work surfaces and integrated units that include two microwaves and a fridge. There is a plug-in induction unit for preparing light lunches and simple suppers, and ample storage for crockery and cutlery.
There’s a glass table for lazy late mornings sharing tea and cake whilst you read through your favourite magazines, and the deep sofas are inviting after a long day of exploration. Settle down together, switching on the TV for some casual viewing of your favourite shows, or connect to the Bluetooth speaker and relax to the tones of your favourite music.
Soothe aching limbs in your en-suite shower room before retiring to bed, curling up in the sumptuously soft king-size bed that’s dressed in crisp linen. Fresh and uncluttered yet packed with personality, this sweet room offers a restful night’s sleep.
Step through the rear door and locate your tranquil seating area, a stunning viewpoint for gazing up at the night sky. The North York Moors are a designated Dark Sky Reserve, so you’ll be in for a treat after dusk with the array of stars and colourful hues to see whilst snuggled under a blanket. In the daylight, it is a peaceful nook next to the farmhouse vegetable garden for wildlife spotting in the fields beyond. By prior arrangement, the shared billiards room and tennis court beckon for some afternoon entertainment.
