Situated in a deliciously secluded location, this detached barn sleeps six and is a charming place full of Yorkshire character. Based just 4 miles from the North York Moors, you are in a wonderful setting for adventures galore with family and friends. Whether you are tempted by the independent shops and a weekly market of Kirkbymoorside (3.5 miles) or captivated by Helmsley’s stunning castle and Rievaulx Abbey (6.5 miles), you’ll find plenty to surprise and delight your entire party.
This thoughtfully furnished stone-built barn is situated beside the owners' grounds and is surrounded by peaceful farmland. Follow the winding pathway to your retreat, stepping through to find stunning interiors that effortlessly blend period features with contemporary style and convenience. Hinting at its former barn heritage, the vaulted ceilings are crisscrossed with timber beams, and the exposed brickwork and stone add a sense of old-world charm to the muted decor and sleek furniture. Your feet will feel the warmth of underfloor heating as you pad through the hallway, casting aside your coats and shoes in the handy nooks provided for outerwear storage.
A delightful, social open-plan living area forms the heart of the home, a place where you will spend most of your time feasting, chatting, and entertaining. First, you have the kitchen, generously equipped with every essential and more, including a wine cooler to chill your bottle of fizz. Perch on a bar stool whilst the chef of the group creates a delicious home-cooked dinner using the induction electric hob, oven, fridge/freezer and combination microwave. There’s also a dishwasher and a washer/dryer which will prove very handy.
The large dining table comfortably fits everyone around for mealtimes with views towards the garden and the fields beyond. Open the wall-to-wall sliding doors on summer nights to reveal the patio, extending your space and making it excellent for celebrating in style. After dinner, wind down on the comfortable sofas and choose a film to watch on the 65 Smart TV or connect your music to the soundbar.
When it's time to retire for the night, venture down the hallway to one of the three bedrooms, all with private en-suite facilities. Each room features a super-king-sized zip-and-link bed (which can be twins on request) and is individually and beautifully styled. Each room has a door leading to the patio, where you can sit on a bench and enjoy a quiet morning brew. There is also a separate WC.
Enjoy the views from the large garden and patio, light up the BBQ and enjoy your al fresco meal at the dining table outside. And when the night is drawing in, the firepit will keep you warm. The garden has been thoughtfully landscaped with lots of floral interest all year round. You can also take a short stroll to see the on-site ponies and alpacas.
