Enjoy a magnificent stay at this gorgeous former barn at Newton-on-Rawcliffe in North Yorkshire. Sleeping seven guests, the three-bedroom, dog-friendly abode nestles on a tranquil site in the village together with several other holiday properties. Head back to your delightful, single-storey retreat after exciting days out to unwind with your family and friends and to make the most of the shared access you have to the indoor swimming pool, sauna and hot tub.
Immerse yourselves in the spectacular countryside surrounding the village as often as possible. Venture out to explore the dramatic North Yorkshire Moors National Park or the picturesque North Riding Forest Park from the barn. Make the most of being just 4 miles from the market town of Pickering, with its medieval castle and museum, as well as its station on the heritage North Yorkshire Moors Railway. From Newton-on-Rawcliffe, you could also organise a visit to Scarborough, 22.5 miles away on the coast.
Step inside this exquisite barn, leaving your walking boots and jackets in the entrance, to discover an open-plan lounge/diner, with a high vaulted ceiling, beams and exposed stone wall. Stoke up the wood burner in here after bracing autumn and winter walks, search for your favourite television programme on the Smart TV or play games long into the evening.
Decide whose turn it is to whip up a tasty meal with the fresh Yorkshire produce you have bought through in the kitchen then set the table and gather round to enjoy it together.
When eyelids begin to droop, make your way through to the double room, the twin or the family room, which features a bunk with a double bed below and a single above. There are two family bathrooms to choose between at this property.
Stroll through the shared grounds, which include a water garden with a pond, and a patio with picnic tables, at your leisure. Amble over to the pool house to do a few lengths of the 6-metre exercise pool or to have a sauna or hot tub after your trips out. There is parking for two cars with this barn.
