Property code: 75899

Ideally located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with something for everyone to enjoy, head to the city of York, visit Castle Howard or walk or cycle through the surrounding countryside.

This gorgeous property nestled amongst the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is the ideal countryside retreat for families or groups of friends looking to spend quality time together whilst exploring the delights of the local area. Immerse yourselves in the tranquillity of the surrounding countryside, whilst being only 2.5 miles from the charming market town of Malton, ‘Yorkshire's Food Capital', which has a range of eateries offering something for all tastes and budgets. With lush green countryside in all directions, there is an abundance of walking and cycling routes on your doorstep and beyond, allowing you to discover the very best of rural North Yorkshire. With market towns, historic country houses, castles, woods and parkland landscapes, there really is something for everyone.

 

Packed with original features, this sympathetically renovated former barn beautifully combines traditional with contemporary features to create a stunning, yet comfortable home. Large bi-folding doors on the ground floor allow light to flood in and the neutral palette adds to the feeling of space, whilst warm wooden tones and stone floors add comfort and character. It is one of two properties at this location.

 

You enter the property into a convenient hall – a great place to leave muddy boots and wet coats. From here, head into the spacious, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which certainly has the ‘wow-factor'. Large vaulted ceilings add a sense of grandeur, whilst traditional, rustic furniture reminds you of the property's heritage. The well-equipped kitchen is a sociable place for preparing snacks or meals and the lounge offers somewhere comfortable to relax after a busy day exploring. The stone floor adds character, but the addition of underfloor heating ensures your toes don't get too chilly.

 

The ground floor is also home to two of the bedrooms. There is a spacious king-size room with plenty of storage, and a delightful twin room. The beautiful family bathroom is also on this floor with a separate shower and bath.

 

Upstairs, the master king-size bedroom is large and luxurious with a Juliet balcony for enjoying the views. It has a stylish and spacious en-suite shower room.

 

On a warm summer's day, open up the bi-folding doors and venture out to the gravelled courtyard and patio area where you can dine alfresco and enjoy a glass of wine. Beyond the patio, there is an enclosed paddock for your dogs (or children) to stretch their legs. There is off-road parking for two cars.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 3 bedrooms – 2 king-size and 1 twin
  • 1 bathroom and 1 en-suite shower room
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer
  • Electric and under floor heating included
  • Off-road parking for 2 cars
  • Wi-Fi included
  • 4 dogs welcome, access to large enclosed paddock
  • Shops and pubs within 2 miles
  • Complex of two properties
  • Smart TV in lounge and bedrooms
  • Please note the property is accessed by an uneven track

The vibrant and attractive market town of Pickering (10.5 miles) is perfect for a relaxing wander around its pretty houses, shops and tearooms. Grand Georgian architecture stands alongside cosy traditional cottages to create a picture-postcard location with several excellent restaurants, pubs and cafes in the town. The wonderful North York Moors Railway starts in Pickering where you can catch a steam train to Whitby and back again through some of the most picturesque countryside in Yorkshire.

In addition to Pickering, there are many well-heeled towns and villages dotted about the Moors, where honey-coloured sandstone buildings lend warm contrast to the deep purple and green of the surrounding hills. The beautiful market town of Helmsley is 13 miles away and is well worth a visit for its great restaurants, cafes and delis. If you fancy a little pampering, you'll also find a fantastic day spa here.

Families will enjoy the theme park and zoo at Flamingo Land, 10 miles away and Eden Camp, a fascinating modern history museum, is just 4.5 miles away. You're also close to Castle Howard (4.5 miles) and York (20 miles) so lots of choice for day trips.

Beyond Pickering lies the awe-inspiring North York Moors, a landscape of gently rolling hills of heather, ancient woodland and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. If you want to get away from it all, take a trip to the top of the high central moorlands, which is also a great option if walking is your thing. The famous Blakey Ridge affords some of the best views in the country and you are surrounded on all sides by some truly stunning routes.

On the edge of the North York Moors, the pretty town of Kirkbymoorside (14 miles) has much to offer including a gallery, antique shops, tea rooms, deli, wine shop and butchers. There's also a great market on Wednesdays.

The North Yorkshire Coast is not far from the property either, with popular seaside resort Scarborough only 26 miles away. Take a day trip here and experiences the sights, sounds and tastes of Yorkshire's coastline.

The Stables was beautifully decorated, well equipped and warm and cosy. It was set in beautiful countryside, very peaceful, but only about a mile or so from Malton itself, so you were not far from town if you ran out of anything.

The Stables is set in an ideal lRead moreocation for both the surrounding countryside and coast (Castle Howard is only a short distance away too). The perfect place to stay for a holiday. Hide

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.
