Retreat to this inviting, ground-floor apartment set within a barn on a site with shared leisure facilities in Newton-on-Rawcliffe, North Yorkshire. Sleeping four guests, the two-bedroom bolthole, which also welcomes your canine companion, offers shared access to an indoor swimming pool, sauna and hot tub, where you can relax with your friends or family after bracing walks through the magnificent, surrounding countryside.

From the property, lace up your walking boots and venture out to explore the splendid North Yorkshire Moors National Park or picturesque North Riding Forest Park. Visit the bustling market town of Pickering, 4 miles away, with its medieval castle, museum and heritage trains running along the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Plan a day out to Scarborough on the coast, 22.5 miles away.

Take one step up to enter the barn, then make your way through into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where you can pull the doors open on to the garden on fine days. Find a film to enjoy together in the evenings in here and take turns at rustling up hearty Yorkshire meals over in the kitchen space before dining either inside or out.

At the end of each exciting day, run yourself a long, hot bubble bath in the family bathroom, then soak for a while before laying your head for the night in either the comfortable twin or the inviting double bedroom.

Bask in the Yorkshire sunshine of the shared, enclosed garden, with its pretty pond, on spring and summer mornings, opting to dine out in the fresh air at a picnic table from time to time. Wander over to the shared pool house to dip, bubble or unwind in the heat whenever you choose. There is private parking for two cars with this apartment.

Newton-on-Rawcliffe is in an excellent position for accessing vibrant Pickering and its many attractions. Spend time here wandering around the pretty streets, perusing the independent shops and pondering in the tearooms, cafes and pubs. Discover Georgian architecture standing alongside cosy traditional cottages, creating a picture-postcard backdrop to your afternoons out. The North York Moors Railway starts in Pickering: here you can catch a steam or heritage diesel train to Whitby and back again through some of the most picturesque countryside in Yorkshire.

Further afield, you can explore the awe-inspiring North York Moors, a landscape of gently rolling hills of heather, ancient woodland and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. If you want to head deeper into the naturally beautiful landscape, take a trip to the top of the high central moorlands, an area known for its superb hiking.

Also visit the other delightful towns and villages of these fascinating moors, where honey-coloured sandstone buildings lend a warm contrast to the deep purple and green of the surrounding hills. The charming town of Kirkbymoorside is 11.5 miles from your apartment, with its treasure trove of art and antiques’ shops, tearooms, Ryedale Folk Museum and a lively market on Wednesdays.

There is a theme park and zoo at Flamingo Land, 9 miles away, and Eden Camp, a fascinating modern history museum, is an 11.5-mile drive. Head to Scarborough, 22.5 miles away, to see the castle or to go to the beach and enjoy a traditionally British day out at the seaside.

Immaculate and lovely and clean, lids from pans missing and very uncomfortable sofas, perfect for two but would have been a bit of a squeeze with four. steep step to get in and out of cottage.
