Welcome to Green Barn, a fabulous 3-bedroom / 3-bathroom barn conversion set on the cusp of a pretty village near Richmond. So much to love about this gorgeous property including stylish contemporary interiors and a hot tub on the balcony with stunning views included! Perfect for families looking for a little luxury in the Dales.
Subject to a complete refurbishment, Green Barn has been transformed into a beautiful family holiday home. Taking advantage of the glorious views, the property has an upside-down layout with the generous living room set on the first floor. This bright and spacious room has bags of contemporary character with soothing grey walls and accents of lime green. Painted floorboards and two large comfy sofas complete the look. At the far end of the living room bi-folding doors open up to the elevated terrace outside. Home to the hot tub and patio set, it's a fantastic space to relax with friends and family whilst taking in those views.
If you can drag yourself away from the views, an LCD TV with Freeview is provided for your evening entertainment. Wi-Fi is also available if you want to catch up online, or have teens in tow who need to connect!
Let's go back downstairs and explore the ground floor. This floor is home to the kitchen/diner as well as one of the bedrooms. Underfloor heating throughout downstairs is a welcome touch. The kitchen continues the elegant contemporary look with its pale grey units, black granite work-tops and ash effect porcelain tiles. The usual mod cons are provided including a full-size fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
Light floods into the room from floor to ceiling windows and patio doors which make up the full wall on one side. The elegant dining table sits right by the window affording lovely views of the estate outside. The doors open onto a small terrace and with a lawned area beyond perfect for picnics.
The downstairs bedroom is just along the hall and features a king-size bed and en suite wet-room. Perfect if you're travelling with someone with reduced mobility. The remaining two bedrooms are both upstairs, a king-size and a super-king (which can be configured as two singles if requested). Both of these rooms also have en suite wet rooms.
Please contact the owner directly to confirm how you would like the beds to be configured if different from standard set up.
Green Barn is a fantastic luxury holiday cottage, with an enviable position within a larger estate. Perfect for those cherished family holidays!
Green Barn has a beautiful location set within a large estate on the cusp of the Yorkshire Dales. With less than an hour's drive to the coast and the City of York it's an ideal basecamp from which to strike out and discover these unique Yorkshire locations. Reeth and the stunning landscapes of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale are also within easy reach, and its well-placed for a day trip over the Lakes if you want to explore there too.
The property is set on the edge of a very pretty village. There's a great dining pub just a short walk away and if you're a bit of a foodie there are several more excellent dining pubs in the area including The Morritt Arms Hotel, the Black Bull at Moulton and the Shoulder of Mutton at Middleton Tyas. Mainsgill, an award winning Deli, tea-room and farm shop is also just minutes from the house. It's also the perfect location if you enjoy walking. There are lots of beautiful walks from the doorstep and in fact its well-known as a great starting point for walking - seasoned walkers come from miles around to set off from the village.
This stunning Yorkshire Cottage is just a few miles away from Richmond, an historic market town with much to offer the discerning holiday-maker. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. Just a short drive through Richmond takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales proper. Head up towards Reeth and on towards Hawes in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside. Stop at the Wensleydale Heiffer for lunch before heading back to the comfort of your cosy cottage.
North of the cottage is the charming town of Barnard Castle. Recently listed as one of the top 10 places to live in the UK, it's a pretty little place with a host of shops, cafes and pubs to explore. The excellent Bowes Museum is here and is well worth a visit. And as the name would suggest there's an historic castle to explore too.
Further south, you'll find the pretty market town of Northallerton where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street. The wonderful Betty's Tearooms is here as is a fantastic local deli, Lewis & Cooper's Food Emporium and of course the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers.
To take in the North York Moors head further south still and brave it up Sutton Bank, the view from the top said by some to be the finest in all of England. The gorgeous market town of Helmsley makes for the perfect pit-stop and if you feel like something special for lunch make your way to the Star Inn at Harome.
And if you feel like a spot of pampering, there's also a fantastic Spa just a few miles down the road.
