This characterful converted barn is in the heart of a peaceful Yorkshire village which caters towards families and reunions wanting a spacious yet cosy and comfortable rural escape.

This gorgeous holiday home is in a picturesque location in a village with ancient roots. Tucked away down a quiet lane, you can enjoy a tranquil countryside location yet still benefit from the pub and shop with a post office less than 200 metres from the front door. The property is situated in Yorkshire’s famed ‘Golden Triangle’, almost equidistant between Harrogate (12.5 miles) and York (10 miles). With ample space for up to ten people, this home is bursting with contemporary country-style charm and all the creature comforts you want in an inviting home-from-home.

As soon as you step in the front door, you’ll feel the warm welcome of an imposing reception hall with a galleried landing that adds a touch of elegance. Head straight through the double doors and marvel at the cinema room, where plush seating with room for everyone to stretch out, neutral colours and a cosy wood burner make this the perfect place to snuggle up and enjoy a film on the large TV with the whole family. If you’d prefer the peace and quiet, sneak off to the lounge where soothing shades of green and blue beckon you to sink into the sofa and unwind. There’s even a small library where you can take your pick of novels and get comfortable, ready to delve into another world.

The stunning farmhouse kitchen is the heart of the home, with beautiful exposed brick and wooden beams taking centre stage. Pretty cabinets and soft natural tones mean it’s a pleasure to cook up meals for everyone to enjoy at the roomy dining table looking out to the garden; on balmy evenings dine alfresco on the patio to take in the last of the sun. The walled garden is a pleasure in itself to wander around, stopping to admire the established plants or simply to enjoy being outside sitting on the covered wooden bench. Back inside, there’s a utility room with a washing machine and dryer so you never have to worry about coming in muddy from long walks.

When it’s time for bed, you’ll find a self-contained suite up its own flight of stairs which is home to a king-size zip-and-link bed along with a separate sitting room that has a small library of books. Wind down with a spot of TV cuddled up on the sofa among soothing tones before snuggling into bed. Wake up and take an invigorating shower in the en-suite before heading down for breakfast.

If you’re not lucky enough to nab the suite, up the main staircase you’ll find a king-size bedroom where exposed beams, rustic furniture and windows to the front and rear overlooking the garden and country lane make for a perfect night’s sleep. Relax on the sofa before bed or enjoy an indulgent soak in the bathroom among calming pastel decor.

Further down the hall, the quirky twin bedroom uses calming neutrals and grey hues to create an atmosphere ideal for sleep, while a further king-size bedroom is a peaceful haven to retreat to among exposed beams, sloping ceilings and pale, cosy tones. There’s also an en-suite shower room so you won’t be queuing in the mornings. Snooze in style in the brass bed in the final king-size bedroom, where the calming tones of the ocean are paired with creams and yellows that complement the views out to the garden through the windows. Read the papers on the sofa in the morning before hopping into the shower for the ideal wake-up call.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 5 bedrooms – 1 king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin upon request) 3 king-size and 1 twin

From your front door, potter around this quintessential English village where you’ll find a cricket green, a children’s play area, a post office, a pub, and shops for all your essentials. History buffs will love the city of York (10 miles) where you can hear angelic choirs at York Minster, see locomotives at the National Railway Museum, discover the Jorvik Viking Centre, go shopping on The Shambles, and savour delicious treats at York’s Chocolate Story. Indulge at the Turkish baths and enjoy afternoon tea in the Victorian spa town of Harrogate (12.5 miles) before exploring the Norman castle in Knaresborough (8 miles). Wildlife encounters are likely as you’re between two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty with Nidderdale to the west (26 miles) and the Howardian Hills (21 miles) to the east, and undulating Yorkshire Dales (24 miles) are also in reach for day trips.

The house was in a super location and was like home from home. The owners could not have been more helpful and had clearly put in a great deal of thought to making the house comfortable, clean and incredibly well equipped. The outside space was also great with comfortable garden furniture and a lovely gas barbecue. Would definitely stay here again!Read more Hide

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
