This stunning barn-conversion set within a quintessential Yorkshire estate offers the perfect location to relax and unwind, surrounded by luscious countryside, sweeping hills and chocolate-box villages.

Tucked on the edge of the spectacular Yorkshire Dales, this holiday cottage is ideal for keen walkers and those who enjoy a leisurely stroll. Enjoy an abundance of scenic trails from your doorstep, or venture by car to Richmond 4 miles away to soak up some ancient history and sample local delicacies. You are also in an excellent location for exploring beautiful National Trust sites such as Moulton Hall 7 miles away, or Hudswell Woods 5 miles away.

 

Inside, this elegant property offers a superb balance of rustic charm meets sophisticated style, featuring wooden beams, glamorous fixtures and luxurious furniture. Ambient lighting and a neutral colour pallet add to the overall contemporary feel, but you'll be transported back in time by the exposed stone walls and roaring fire. Step through the dual aspect doorway to discover the delightful living room, a spacious and luxurious retreat where you can curl up with a soothing glass of red wine to watch an exciting film. Next you'll find the kitchen, which has everything you need to rustle up decadent dinners and sumptuous suppers for the entire family. The first king-size bedroom is also downstairs, complete with an impressive en-suite shower. Upstairs you'll find two further bedrooms, both sharing a fabulous wet room. The first is a king-size, where you'll feel like royalty sinking into the magnificent four-poster bed. The final bedroom can be made up as either a super-king or a twin depending on preference.

 

To the rear of the property is the private courtyard, which hosts a marvellous wood-fired hot tub. Indulge in a glass of fizz under the stars, immersed in the steamy  hot water, or sizzle up a storm on the BBQ for leisurely evenings dining alfresco whilst admiring the dainty water garden by fairy light. To the front of the property is a shared courtyard, another enjoyable spot for an aperitif or after dinner coffee.

 

  • 3 bedrooms – 2 king-size and 1 super-king zip-and-link (which can be made up as a twin on request)

A brilliant base for touring the Yorkshire Dales. The staff on the complex were incredibly attentive, friendly and pro-active whilst still enabling us to carry on with our holiday with the privacy we wanted. Our every need was catered for - log-stores topped up every day, the log burning hot-tub set and constant checking that we had everything.

Beautiful location , close to a village and town with great pubs and restaurants. The cottage is well equipped except for a washer and dryer. A better instruction pack re where to put rubbish and get logs would have been helpful
