This beautiful barn conversion is an ideal rural retreat for guests seeking a place to relax and unwind, surrounded by stunning woodland, lush pastures and miles of rolling hills.

Welcome to this beautiful large barn conversion set in the North York Moors, just outside the very pretty village of Hovingham.

 

Although the interior style is quite contemporary, the use of exposed brickwork and wooden beams maintain the feel of the old barn. There are four double bedrooms, two of them with a charming mezzanine level upstairs. The cottage also features a dramatic double-height dining room, a large farmhouse kitchen and a very comfortable lounge area complete with wood burner. Flagstone flooring adds to the luxurious, rustic feel.

 

There are little touches inside and out which ensure the cottage's year-round appeal. For the summer months, the south-facing courtyard and gardens feature a hot tub, patio and BBQ area. With fantastic views across the countryside beyond, it's a gorgeous spot for al fresco fun. In the winter months, the wood burner and comfortable sofas make for the perfect cosy hideaway.

 

The cottage has its own exclusive hot tub and also shared access to some fantastic leisure facilities including a mini gym, treatment room, sauna and relaxation area, as well as a fully-stocked games room with table tennis, pool and table football

  • 4 super-king bedrooms (All can be configured as twin beds upon request at time of booking)

The Hay Barn is set in the rolling Howardian Hills in the western reaches of the North York Moors. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns.

The very pretty village of Hovingham is just a couple of miles' drive and features several pubs, a tea room and a local store. The beautiful market town of Helmsley is just ten miles away and is also well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering, you'll find a fantastic day spa here; the Verbena Spa. Perfect for a little indulgence!

You're also close to Castle Howard (4 miles), York (18 miles) and the North Yorkshire coast, so lots of choice for day trips.

If you're a fan of charming country pubs, the gorgeous Grapes at Slingsby is a very pleasant walk away.

What an absolutely beautiful property. We were a group of ladies celebrating a friends 50th Birthday. The owners have thought of everything, down to the Molton Brown toiletries which went down very well with us We had such an amazing time, our aim was to relax and thats exactly what we did. We had a problem with the hot water and it was fixed quicRead morekly. There is so much care and thought gone into the property and we were all in agreement that we will definitely be back. Hide

A fantastic weeks holiday for 7 of us with two small dogs in the Hay Barn, Cherrygarth Cottages. Lots of space, excellent accommodation, wonderful location with lots of local walks. Hot tub, games room and sauna all used and enjoyed. Extra comfy beds and great kitchen facilities in luring a lovely welcome basket on arrival. Highly recommend.

Had a fantastic weekend. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your time there. Well stocked hamper waiting for us on arrival was much appreciated. The hot tub was fabulous and although we didnt use the games room we were really impressed by it. Would definitely visit again with the grandchildren.
