An exquisitely converted barn that beautifully blends original features with modern comforts, making it the perfect retreat for those wanting to immerse themselves in rural tranquillity.
A dog’s life is a jolly good life at this lovely barn conversion in the heart of the North York Moors. She’ll go mutts for the underfloor heating (so many warm spots to sleep on!) and massive lawn – and you’ll adore the impressive views of the surrounding hills. Let her run loose through heather moorlands and enchanting forests before settling into an evening in at this cosy cottage, where there’s space for four humans and two dogs. This is part of a complex of five various-sized properties that all welcome dogs – ideal if you’re holidaying in a larger group.
This traditional property has original stone walls both inside and out. In the open-plan living area, a high vaulted ceiling supported by gorgeous wooden beams creates a sense of space. On chilly nights, light the wood burner to create a cosy atmosphere for you all to enjoy together. The huge outdoor space is great for spending quality time together. In the south-facing garden, enjoy lunches on the picnic tables as your pet chews her squeaky rabbit on the large lawn nearby.
You’ll be in the tranquil hamlet of Church Houses, the starting point for many fantastic walks in the North York Moors. Explore the market towns of Helmsley (14 miles) or Pickering (16 miles) and pick up local produce for making delicious meals back at the house. If you like Harry Potter, you’ll love visiting the filming locations in and around Goathland (26 miles). Head to Whitby (25 miles) if you’re craving the sea air. Walk along the stunning heritage coast and admire lovely coastal views, perhaps taking your pet for a run-around on Tate Hill Beach where dogs are welcome all year round.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
