Set in a tranquil North Yorkshire village just seven miles from the coast, this handsome Grade II listed 17th century barn conversion is perfect for couples looking for a sophisticated rural retreat.

Head off on a holiday to Yorkshire with two very happy hounds accompanying you. This beautiful stone barn conversion at Ruston, which accommodates up to two guests, is the perfect place for your pampered pets. Take them on long walks through the picturesque North York Moors National Park; find trails through beautiful woodland, along meandering rivers and over verdant hills. Make your way home to prepare a romantic meal for two in your chic kitchen while your contented canines stretch out in front of a roaring wood burner.

 

Open the door to this former 17th-century barn with its vaulted ceiling, to find eye-catching, stylish accommodation. Admire the contrast between the exposed stone walls and contemporary features, such as the kitchen and mezzanine, while Rex and Rover pad about in the space offered by the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Light the wood burner and settle down to a DVD in here before dinner. Plan long walks to set tails wagging the next day. There’s a shower room at ground floor level, and then make your way up to your mezzanine bedroom which overlooks the living area, where there is another TV and a bath. Take your eager pups for a stroll in the morning, then sit out in the sunshine to enjoy coffee on the patio.

 

Head to the coast at Cayton Bay, 8.5 miles away, to let your furry friends play and bound on the sand all year round. Venture about 9 miles into North Riding Forest Park to explore magnificent Dalby Forest, where there is plenty of space for them to stretch their furry legs. Head further into the North York Moors National Park to the 30-foot Falling Foss waterfall, 19 miles away, where you can enjoy an enchanting 2-mile woodland walk and your pals can paddle in shallow waters along the way.

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

Having only stayed for 2 nights we did not have the opportunity to discuss our concerns with the owners. When we left on Monday morning the owners had gone out.

Lovely cottage in a very pretty quiet location. Handy for the coast and inland destinations. Thornton Le Dale, Helmsley and Hutton Le Hole worth the short trip.

A very comfortable and cosy barn conversion cottage set up with all you need for a break away from it all. While Ruston is a lovely, peaceful village providing an ideal setting for a relaxing stay, it is close enough to Malton for food and shopping and also to Scarborough for walks and the beach.

Comfortable, welcoming cottage. Martin and Lisa, were on hand if needed but in no way intrusive. Blacksmiths Barn offers an excellent base for exploring the moors, the local pub is good value and there are several easy walks from the front door.

Great location, 6 miles from Scarborough and right on the edge of the North Yorks Moors. Clean and well equipped. Everything you could need for a break. My only small niggle was that the bed was a bit on the small side. I'm used to more space and I found it uncomfortably cramped.

A very comfortable, characterful cottage in a beautiful location. Perfect for exploring the North York Moors, Dalby Forest, surrounding villages and seaside towns. Wonderful dog walks both around the village and further afield. Martin and Lisa were perfect hosts. Thank you, for a really lovely stay.

Lovely little barn, located in a very small villlage. Barn was as shown in photos, well equipped, best ever instructions for hot to use log burner. One pub easy to walkable to but need a car to get most local villages. Would recommend if you want to be away from it all.
