Property code: 78118

This beautiful converted barn is a perfect peaceful retreat to gather with Friends and Family surrounded by picture postcard quaint villages and North Yorkshire Dales countryside.

This gorgeous stone-built property is in an idyllic location in the pretty village of Hipswell, just 3 miles from Richmond. Tucked away from the road yet far from isolated, you can enjoy the peace and quiet of a countryside location but have the benefit of a pub, takeaways and three supermarkets within 1 mile. With ample space for eight people, this former barn is bursting with character and boasts a beautiful garden with established trees and glimpses of the hills, reminding you that you’re just outside the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park. And if you’re part of a larger party, you can book this home with another house that sleeps five.

Leave your muddy walking boots behind in the inviting entrance hallway where you’ll instantly feel at home among charming exposed stone walls and earthy tiles. To your right, the kitchen will impress you with high open vaulted ceilings and lots of light; the chef of your group can cook up a storm while you chat to them from the island with a glass of wine. Grab a quick bite from the rustic breakfast table, or head through to the open-plan living area to enjoy a sociable meal at the dining table. Sit up there chatting for hours or challenge each other to a boardgame.

If you’d rather get comfortable, retire to the lounge area where vaulted ceilings and wood beams beckon you to sink into the sofas in front of the wood burner, watching a film on the TV/DVD together or losing yourself in a good book. On sunny days, throw open the patio doors and let the light flood in from the garden; you can even dine alfresco by sizzling up a BBQ among the wonderful plants and trees, and the children can run off their energy on the lawn. Maybe they will even need to take a rest in the hammock near the bottom of the garden – but watch out for the Mill Race stream that runs under the property.

Across the hallway, the main king-size bedroom awaits two (or three!) lucky guests; this huge bedroom has direct access to the garden and a sofa bed which is perfect for little ones. Exposed beams, wooden furniture and calming, neutral colours ensure you get a tranquil nights’ sleep. Wake up with an invigorating shower in the wet room, or head to the bathroom across the hall and enjoy an indulgent soak in the roll-top bath. The second bedroom on the ground floor is cosy and welcoming with pretty pastel colours and is perfect for two.

Climb the stairs to the final two bedrooms, where exposed stone walls, rich wooden beams and vaulted ceilings create a relaxing ambience; these bedrooms share a stunning bathroom with another roll-top bath and a separate shower for the ultimate spa-like experience after a long day out walking in the Dales. Children will love their little hideaway in the twin room, while the king-size room has a serene atmosphere with soothing green tones and a sofa to snuggle up on as you catch up with some TV before bed.

  • 4 bedrooms - 2 king-size, 1 double and 1 twin
  • 1 wet room, and 2 bathrooms with roll top bath with separate shower and WC
  • Electric double oven and gas hob, dishwasher, microwave, American style fridge/ freezer, dishwasher, washing machine
  • Ample off-road parking
  • TV/DVD in lounge and master bedroom
  • Supermarket, pubs and restaurants within 1.1 miles
  • Lockable outdoor storage for bikes
  • Charcoal BBQ
  • Iron and ironing board available
  • Sleeps 8+1 (sofa bed in ground floor king-size bedroom)
  • Property can be booked with The Mill House - Richmond to accommodate larger groups
  • The Mill race stream runs under property, children have to be supervised.

Visit the historic town of Richmond to wander its cobbled marketplace and pretty streets; to see its castle and dine out. Meander along the banks of the River Swale and spend time at nearby Easby Abbey, approximately 4.5 miles from your base. These impressive ruins sit on the eastern bank of the river and date back to the 12th century. Go walking, climbing or cycling in the Yorkshire Dales. Visit spectacular Aysgarth Falls, which are 15 miles away, and feature a triple flight of waterfalls against a backdrop of woodland. Keen walkers will also be eager to experience the landscapes of the North York Moors, about 16 miles away, and the North Pennines, approximately 25 miles away.

A spacious comfortable house with parking for 3 cars on the drive. Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor but there are 2 steps. .There is plenty of private outside space if needed for children. Shops are nearby and restaurants (when restrictions are lifted). There are plenty of takeaway food outlets in Richmond.

We had our 2 grandchildren 7 & 9 who loved the garden. It's a very safe location and the cottage is perfect for a large family ( 8 people ) with lots of space for everyone. It has been well thought out to accommodate a large party and we really enjoyed our dinners all together round one huge table.

Mill Race is superb. The house itself is beautiful - a lovely, spacious former mill building, tastefully decorated with all mod cons. The garden (with its hammock and big patio) is a lovely place to relax in the sun (if you're lucky, as we were!) There is a lovely walk straight from the property - through farmyard and fields down to the River SwaleRead more. At the same time, it's a 5 minute drive to Tesco, Aldi, Lidl and Dominos. Our hosts were very welcoming. Thank you. Hide

Lovely, spacious and comfortable cottage immaculately presented and very clean. Great garden which our kids really enjoyed. The actual location of the cottage was very secluded. Access to to Richmond (3 miles) and the Dales themselves was very easy. We loved the area and plan to visit again. Just be aware the cottage is not quite in the heart of thRead moree Dales and weigh this up when deciding if to book. Overall we would recommend for family groups and would consider using again.

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.
