Welcome to this unique and beautiful hideaway set in one of Yorkshire's prettiest villages. Architect designed and converted from a traditional cowshed with no expense spared, the cottage is fabulously appointed and benefits from a host of additional services. A stylish and sophisticated interior, simply stunning views and the delights of a North Yorkshire country village a short stroll away – it makes the perfect couple's escape.
Tucked away on the edge of beautiful Goathland, the property enjoys uninterrupted views of the North York Moors, a truly wild and gorgeous landscape. A visit here is a chance to absorb the spirit and values of a simpler life, to relax and recharge.
The cottage is a sympathetic conversion of historic stone barns and offers a unique boutique one-bedroom luxury retreat. Designed to be the perfect bolthole for couples, everything about the place shouts grown-up glamour, from the honesty drinks tray to the luxury welcome goodies.
With a host of extra services, you'll feel seriously pampered from the moment you arrive. The easy pared-back style makes it a wonderfully restful getaway that boasts every essential of the modern hide-out, from the wood burners (inside and out!) to the roll-top bath, outside swing bench and much much more.
A handsome colour scheme of greys and greens with natural fabrics, old beams, heavy stone sills and traditional rendered plasterwork allow you to appreciate the original building whilst enjoying all modern luxuries. The sitting room features a lovely linen-covered sofa with an aged leather armchair, English Oak dining table and sheepskin rugs to make sure you're nice and cosy. There's a large wall-mounted Smart TV and Wi-Fi is provided if you want to catch up online. The traditional wood burner finishes the scene perfectly. The shaker-style kitchen is finished in a traditional style and has a washing machine, ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave and a Nespresso coffee-maker along with well-equipped cupboards with high-quality utensils, crockery and glassware for the cooks among you.
At the other end of the hallway is the fabulous bedroom with a state of the art en-suite bathroom and large walk-in rain shower. The bedroom is an understated but opulent combination of simple styling with the wonderful addition of a cast iron roll-top bath with brass taps sitting beneath an old oak beam. Hand waxed doors and wardrobes feature throughout. Inside the wardrobe, even the coat hangers and shelves have their own hand-stitched linen covers! With crisp white cotton bedding, comfy throws, cushions and soft mood lighting, you won't want to get out of bed.
To the front of the property is a large enclosed wild grass and alpine garden. At the back is a wonderful private covered dining area with wonderful views over your own woodland and wildlife pond. There's also an outdoor wood burner, a swinging bench and a BBQ so you can take full advantage of those balmy summer days! Throw open the stable door and settle down to a long lazy lunch over a bottle of fizz. Soak up this bucolic heaven and see if you can spot the wild roe deer and barn owls who are often daily visitors.
There is so much to enjoy outside this wonderful holiday home. Guests are welcome to use the paths over the owner's private estate which is a conservation showpiece and home to over 80 species of birds. There's plenty of lockable storage for your bikes, and extra wellies are provided if you fancy a hike across the fields without ruining your best boots! Footpath maps are available on request.
