In an idyllic position on the cusp of a lovely North Yorkshire village, this beautiful barn conversion has a private hot tub and provides gorgeous accommodation for a family looking for a tranquil retreat.

Set on the cusp of a pretty village in the Yorkshire Dales is this a gorgeous three-bedroom barn conversion. A fabulous interior includes Farrow & Ball colours throughout, feature beds and a roaring open fire to curl up in front of. A wood-burning hot tub in the garden keeps everyone nice and toasty outside too. As the name suggests, this charming stone barn was once home to the local cattle on the estate. It has since been transformed into a stylish and elegant family holiday home.

Entering the property from the rear, you step into a spacious and dramatic sitting room. Accents of grey and purple give this room a luxurious and atmospheric appeal. Light up the fire and snuggle up on one of two large comfortable sofas, the perfect place to relax after a busy day's sightseeing in Yorkshire. There's an LCD TV with DVD player in here, and Wi-Fi is included throughout. Books and board games are provided for some offline family fun.

The kitchen sits next door and echoes the same stylish appeal. Chic stone-colour units gather around a dining table with quirky handmade barrel stools underneath. The cupboards are fully-equipped with everything you'll need for your stay and a dishwasher, washer/dryer is included for your convenience.

There are three bedrooms in the property, each with their own unique feature beds and personality. The first bedroom is on the ground floor. This generous room boasts a fabulous king-size four-poster bedstead and a wow-factor wet room set into the corner of the room. The remaining bedrooms are both upstairs. Bedroom two features a king-size French bed with exposed beams overhead. The final bedroom is a stunning room with exposed stone walls and a fabulous four-poster bed. There is a further wet room-style bathroom with a walk-in shower and WC.

The Dairy Shed offers much to enjoy outside too. To the rear, you have a charming enclosed courtyard with outdoor furniture, fairy lights and a BBQ, the perfect location for those al fresco dinners in summer. The courtyard is also home to the log-burning hot tub which is exclusively for guests use and available throughout the year.

To the front of the barn is a large shared courtyard, another very pleasant and sheltered space to settle down with the papers. Beyond the gardens, guests are more than welcome to walk around the estate and meet the local wildlife. The cross-country walk by the church and down to the village pub is also highly recommended. For little ones, there is a play area just a few hundred yards from the barn.

The property has a beautiful location set within a large estate on the cusp of the Yorkshire Dales. With a 50-mile drive to the coast and the City of York, it's an ideal basecamp from which to strike out and discover these unique Yorkshire locations. Reeth (15 miles) and the stunning landscapes of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale (both 24 miles) are also within easy reach, and you are well-placed for a day trip over the Lakes if you want to explore there too.

The property is set on the edge of a very pretty village. There's a great dining pub just a short walk away and if you're a bit of a foodie there are several more excellent dining pubs in the area as well as a deli, tea room and farm shop a couple of miles from the house. It's also the perfect location if you enjoy walking. There are lots of beautiful walks from the doorstep and the village is well known as a great starting point for walking - seasoned walkers come from miles around to set off from the village.

This stunning Yorkshire cottage is just 4 miles away from Richmond, a historic market town with much to offer the discerning holidaymaker. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. Just a short drive through Richmond takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales proper. Head up towards Reeth and on towards Hawes in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside.

North of the cottage is the charming town of Barnard Castle (12 miles). Recently listed as one of the top 10 places to live in the UK, it's a pretty little place with a host of shops, cafes and pubs to explore. The excellent Bowes Museum is here and is well worth a visit. And as the name would suggest there's a historic castle to explore too.

Further south, you'll find the pretty market town of Northallerton (20 miles) where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street. The wonderful Betty's Tearooms is here as is a fantastic local deli, Lewis & Cooper's Food Emporium and of course the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers.

To take in the North York Moors, head further south still and brave it up Sutton Bank, the view from the top said by some to be the finest in all of England. If you feel like a spot of pampering, there's also a fantastic spa just a few miles down the road.

We stayed in the cottage over Christmas. The property suited us as a family of 5 (kids aged 6/9/14). It was an idyllic little setting for Christmas, the log fire and cosy lounge with a beautiful Christmas tree supplied. The hot tub took hours to warm up but what a treat on Christmas morning! The kitchen was well equipped to cook a Christmas dinner,Read more everything clean and of a good standard. Pub walking distance serving fab food. Lovely little walks on the doorstep. Perfect break.

Beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings , perfect location. Spotlessly clean , well equipped for your full break. Although I do think the cottage is more suitable for adults than children due to all double beds , intimate shower facilities in downstairs bedroom .

Lovely holiday cottage in a great location. Wood burning hot tub takes much longer than told to get hot enough to use, but worth persevering with. We had a fabulous few days.

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.
