Gather together with family or friends in this five-bedroom, dog-friendly holiday home, for a relaxing stay in the Yorkshire Dales.

Escape with your family and friends to this gorgeous stone barn in Constable Burton in scenic North Yorkshire. Sleeping 10 guests, with beautiful grounds and capturing magnificent country views, the five-bedroom retreat makes the perfect place for a group stay. Situated 3 miles from Leyburn, on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Wenselydale, it is in a superb setting for anyone with a passion for the great outdoors.

Opportunities for family days out to historic sites, such as Bolton Castle, 10 miles away, and beauty spots, such as Aysgarth Falls, 11 miles away, are also in abundance here, as are trips to colourful Yorkshire towns, including Richmond, 8.5 miles from the barn.

Wander inside to discover stylish, country interiors with numerous luxurious touches to ensure you are comfortable during your stay. Marrying character features, such as high oak beams, exposed stonework, and wooden flooring, with the latest technology, the barn has been carefully finished throughout. Please note, due to the building’s age, there are some internal steps between different areas.

Leave your wellies or walking boots in the hall then make your way through to the beautiful lounge, where you can relax and gaze out at the uninterrupted views of the Wensleydale countryside. Relax together on the comfortable seating here in front of a film on the Smart TV while the wood burner throws out an inviting glow in the background.

Prepare family feasts in the country-style kitchen, where you will find everything you need to help you whip up delicious feasts with your own ingredients during your stay. Pause at the breakfast bar with a cup of coffee or glass of wine before setting the long table and lighting the wood burner in here ready for your feast. Also downstairs are a handy utility room and a games room, where the younger members of the family and any fun-loving adults will enjoy challenging each other to a game of pool.

When it’s time to retire for the night, head off to one of the five tastefully furnished bedrooms. The two ground-floor bedrooms both have double beds and en-suite bathrooms, while upstairs there are three super-king-sized, zip-and-link bedrooms, which can be made into twins upon request. Two of these have en-suite bathrooms, one with twin baths, while the other has an en-suite shower room.

Spread out into the magnificent gardens on fine days. Dine out in the charming courtyard, play games with the children on the lawn and simply soak up the serenity as you admire the views out over the moors towards the hills. There is private parking at the barn for up to three cars.

  • 5 bedrooms - 2 doubles, 3 super-king-size zip-and-link (can be made into twins on request)

Head into the historic market town of Richmond, just 8.5 miles from the barn, to visit its 11th-century castle and appreciate its fine Georgian architecture and large cobbled market square. Stroll through the fascinating town to potter in its independent shops and pause for a cup of Yorkshire tea in one of its many tearooms.

The gorgeous River Swale runs through the town and, less than 1 mile away, are the scenic River Swale Waterfalls. You can walk in either direction along the river and deep into the countryside without having to take your car. We also recommend exploring the restored former Richmond Railway Station which has lots to entertain young and old including a small cinema, gallery, microbrewery, cafe and artisan bakery.

The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey, is just 2 miles from Richmond and 10 miles from the barn. Set on the banks of the River Swale, this is the perfect spot for a walk and a picnic in the summer months.

Venture 11 miles to see the spectacular Aysgarth Falls, which were featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves! The village here boasts many great options to eat, including popular pubs and cute cafes. If you visit in spring, you can’t leave without a visit to the nature reserve at Freeholders’ Wood where bluebells, anemones and primroses will be in full bloom.

History lovers will also be fascinated by visits to Bolton Castle, Middleham Castle and Jervaulx Abbey, which are 10, 5 and 6 miles from the property, respectively. Bolton Castle dates back to the 14th century and once held Mary, Queen of Scots prisoner, while Middleham Castle was the childhood home of Richard III. Jervaulx Abbey is the country’s largest privately-owned Cistercian Abbey and offers peace and tranquillity to its visitors.

Lovely property, very spacious & warm. Amazing stone floors, stylish furniture. Great size kitchen. Top outdoor space. Lots of hotwater. NewYear - cooking amazing Farmison meats & celebrating with fine wine. Kitchen equipment was disappointing for amount we paid. The range oven needs a service. A cook will understand. Lack of items: juicer, grinderRead more, coffee machine, sharpknives, fine wine glasses, decanter, placemats, linens etc. Had a lovely time just could have been tip-top. Hide
