A lovingly converted barn set in the open countryside of Yorkshire, boasting uninterrupted views and elegant interiors, sitting within driving distance of the Medieval town of York and all its attractions.

Tucked away at the edge of the Howardian Hills, this cottage sits just 2 miles from the village of Stillington where you'll find three cosy country pubs in addition to a wonderful village shop and a welcoming atmosphere. Here, you're perfectly positioned to discover some of the best of the North Yorkshire countryside. From this scenic location, you'll have access to lush pastures and woodlands for endless exploration each and every day. The walled city of York sits just 13 miles away, so take a day trip to this medieval city to check out the eateries, shops and pubs, along with the iconic gothic-style York Minster cathedral and the Jorvik Viking Centre.

Dating back to the early 19th century, this Grade II listed building has been transformed from farmyard building into a luxurious holiday home, retaining much of its original character throughout. Step inside and be welcomed by a gorgeous open-plan living space, home to the lounge, kitchen and dining area. The lounge area comes complete with a wood burner so you can cosy up in front of the TV during the chillier months. The bright and attractive kitchen is equipped with all the amenities you'll need to prepare homecooked food before sitting down at the farmhouse dining table, perfect for two. Make your way into the eaves of the barn to be greeted by a generous bedroom, complete with plush soft furnishings that add a true sense of luxury. French doors open out onto a Juliet balcony so you can enjoy a bird's eye view of your enviable surroundings. Next door, the bathroom is home to a beautiful free-standing bath so you can lose yourself in the bubbles after a long day of sightseeing.

Outside, you'll find a shelter stone terrace boasting outdoor furniture, so you can sit outside and drink in your picture-postcard surroundings. The grounds also have a tennis court, available to use by arrangement so you can lose yourself in hours of competitive fun. What's more, you are welcome to make use of the large barn next door which is perfect for storing bikes. For lovers of wildlife, kestrels, buzzards, skylarks, lapwings, curlews and geese are regular visitors, as are deer, hares and badgers.

What a delightful property. Spotlessly clean, well appointed and finished to a high standard. The perfect cozy retreat for two. Our hosts were warm, welcoming and eager to make sure we had everything we needed, all without being intrusive. We had such a wonderful stay here that we were loathed to leave when the time came. We've stayed many cottagesRead more over the years but this one is hard to beat. We left feeling refreshed and reinvigorated and will definitely be returning. Highly recommend. Hide
