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.

The Hay Barn has been converted and appointed to the very highest quality of accommodation and equipment. The external rectangular shape belies the fact that every bit of space has been has been used thoughtfully to create a very spacious living area. It's peaceful, with farm land all around but is also handily situated for visits to the Dales or tRead morehe moors. York is also only a 30 minute drive away. A waiting complimentary hamper of groceries, a bottle of prosecco and more, was very thoughtful. Hide

The house is maintained and cleaned to a very good standard. We had a party of 9 staying in the stables and found the property to be excellent. The playroom catered for children (and adults !) of multiple ages. The walks that are nearby are very peaceful and cater for all physical fitness abilities..... thank you !!

Everything has been thought of! Plenty of space in the cottage; love having our own bathrooms. Nice touches of smellies and dressing gowns to add that luxurious feel. Location is very good - out of the way, lovely walks from the cottage yet not too far to get into the Moors.

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.
