This former Blacksmith's barn which used to house metal and nails has been completely transformed into a luxurious and romantic holiday home situated in a pretty North Yorkshire village.
Featured in The Guardian and The Financial Times as one of their top 5 Valentine Hideaways, this beautiful one-bedroom luxury cottage is set in a pretty little village in the North York Moors. With its dramatic double height window, romantic mezzanine bedroom and stunning countryside views, it's the perfect escape for couples looking for something special.
As the name suggests, this historic stone barn was once where the local Blacksmith stored all of his nails and metal; it has since been completely transformed into a comfortable and luxurious holiday home. The open-plan living space gives the cottage a bright and contemporary feel, with lots of light streaming in through the high gable window. This also affords fantastic uninterrupted views of the rolling green countryside, even from the mezzanine level. The flooring downstairs is stylish black slate and underfloor heating keeps your toes toasty warm whatever the weather. In the lounge area, you'll find a comfortable sofa to stretch out on, an LCD TV, a DVD player and extensive DVD collection for those cosy movie nights. There's also Wi-Fi included if you want to connect online.
The ultra-modern contemporary kitchen is set to the rear of the cottage and features sleek walnut units, a touch-control ceramic hob, fridge-freezer, microwave and Nespresso coffee maker. The cupboards are stocked with everything you need to rustle up a romantic dinner for two.
And so to bed; make your way up the bespoke wrought iron staircase to a gorgeous mezzanine bedroom boasting a king-size bed and luxurious soft carpets. No need to rush, pop on your slippers and enjoy a lazy breakfast in bed. The bathroom in this luxury cottage is also really rather special, featuring top quality Roca fittings, a bateau bath and twinkling lights in the ceiling. Draw yourself a bath and enjoy a long hot soak under the stars each evening.
Outside, there's a charming and stone patio, the perfect spot to throw open the double doors and settle down to lunch alfresco. The garden is west facing and a real suntrap in the warmer weather. There's a pretty patio table and chairs and a BBQ provided, as well as secure storage for bicycles. The views are lovely from here, and you have nothing to disturb you but the sound of birdsong overhead.
