Set in a tranquil North Yorkshire village just seven miles from the coast, this handsome Grade II listed 17th century barn conversion is perfect for couples looking for a sophisticated rural retreat.

A handsome Grade II-listed 17th century barn set in a picture-perfect North York Moors village, it is the perfect blend of traditional and contemporary-style, this gorgeous one-bedroom property is perfect for couples looking for a sophisticated romantic escape to the country. Tucked away in this beautiful corner of North Yorkshire just a few miles from the coast, this property is a stylish and elegant hideaway with real ‘wow-factor'. From its dramatic vaulted ceilings and mezzanine bedroom to its exposed stone walls and statement lighting, this is a seriously chic rural retreat.

Step inside the historic old barn to discover a modern and warm open-place space. The main living area enjoys those fabulous high ceilings and a large floor to ceiling picture window drenches the room in light. Underfloor heating underfoot and a roaring log-burning fire keeps you feeling nice and cosy and there's a choice of a large comfy sofa and an armchair to curl up on. If you need to catch up online Wi-Fi is provided, and there's a TV/DVD and sound system for your entertainment. The kitchen also sits within this open-plan space towards the rear of the barn. Smart units gather around a corner of the barn, well-stocked with all the utensils and equipment you'll need to rustle up something yummy. The solid oak dining table sits by the picture window affording lovely views of the village beyond. Take your time over a morning coffee and the papers, soaking up the gentle sights and sounds of Yorkshire village life.

Romantics will love the mezzanine level bedroom with its stunning inset bath set on the balcony. What better end to a day exploring the North York Moors than going for a long hot soak. The bedroom boasts a double antique French bed dressed in crisp white bed linen, and there's another TV up here if you fancy a lazy morning in your PJs. In addition to the bath there's a luxurious shower room on the ground level. It has a luxury hotel vibe with his and her basins set in solid oak, underfloor heating and a beautiful walk-in shower.

The property also benefits from a patio with outdoor furniture, the perfect spot to relax and catch up over the days events.

This accommodation has an idyllic location with an abundance of wildlife on its doorstep including deer, birds of prey, owls and highland cattle. Set in the unspoilt and very pretty North York Moors village of Ruston just 50 yards from the boundary of the North York Moors National Park with stunning views of the Vale of Pickering, you can strike out for a walk right from the doorstep. Strolling down to the local tea-rooms for a slice of cake is a pleasure and there's a pub which serves food within a mile of the property. Its position means you are perfectly placed to take in the best of the North York Moors, Yorkshire Coast and York.

 

Sitting at the eastern foot of the North York Moors the region's dramatic landscape of heather and open moorland is just a short drive away. Somewhat smaller than the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors still cover an area of almost 600 square miles and like the Dales you can easily find yourself miles from anywhere relatively quickly. But there is something distinctly more civilised and less remote about the Moors. In place of harsh limestone and dramatic peaks you'll find gentle rolling hills of heather, ancient woodland and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. There is a sense of wilderness, particularly on top of the high central moorlands, but its cast in comforting soft focus. We recommend taking the road from Thornton-Le-Dale or Pickering north towards Whitby to experience it in all its grandeur. There are countless pretty villages and towns to explore in the area. The handsome market towns of Pickering and Helmsley are a must, as is the archetypical Moors village of Hutton-le-Hole.

 

Although you could happily spend the weekend mooching about the independent shops, bars and cafes along Whitby's bustling medieval streets, it's well worth striking out to sample some of the other less known coastal villages nearby. Staithes and Runswick Bay are all within 5 miles of the town, and each have their own unique charm.

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.
