With ample opportunity for exploration, relaxation and plenty of luxury, this stunning property on the edge of the North York Moor provides guests with a lovely place to stay.

This beautiful barn conversion is situated just outside a pretty village in the North York Moors. With an outdoor hot tub, pretty courtyard garden and an impressive leisure suite included, it's a fabulous holiday cottage for those looking for something extra. And to top it off, there is a heavenly country pub within walking distance.


The charm of the old farm buildings have been preserved perfectly with the use of exposed wooden beams and brickwork, however, the interior has a classic contemporary finish. There are two large double bedrooms, one with a large en-suite bathroom and the second with access to a wet room.


The cottage also features a lovely farmhouse kitchen and a very comfortable lounge/dining area complete with wood burner. Flagstone flooring with underfloor heating lends a stylish touch.


The south-facing courtyard and gardens feature a hot tub, patio and BBQ area, perfect for al fresco frolics in the warmer months. In the winter months, the wood burner and comfy sofas make for the perfect snug 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. You'll also find a fully stocked games room with table tennis, pool and table football.

Due to the current situation the shared facilities, including mini gym, spa and games room may not be available.

The cottage 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 2-mile drive and features several pubs, a tea room and local store.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley (10 miles) is also close by and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering you'll find a fantastic day spa here - perfect for a little indulgence!

You're also close to Castle Howard (4 miles), York (20 miles) and the North Yorkshire coast (30 miles), so there is lots of choice for day trips.

This cottage is one of the best we have visited. The perfect place for a relaxing break, nicely located for short walks to local pubs across the fields. Highly recommend The Hovingham Inn. We so enjoyed the property and its facilities, that we only left to walk for lunch.

Beautiful converted barn. Everything you could think of was taken care of. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped. The beds were comfortable. The sofas big and comfy. The bathrooms luxurious.

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.
