Property code: G0143

This stunning and spacious barn conversion has been lovingly transformed and makes an ideal holiday home for a couple looking for a delightful getaway in a gorgeous and tranquil rural location.

Enjoy a romantic getaway for two in this stunning and spacious barn conversion on the cusp of the North York Moors. Ideally located for long strolls through the moors with four-legged friends, it is surrounded by unspoilt open countryside, pretty villages and inviting dog-friendly pubs. Arranged over one level, this beautifully converted barn boasts sociable and stylish open-plan accommodation, a warming wood burner, glorious rural views and shared access to a tennis court and a games room.

 

Inside, the spectacular main living space is bright, airy and tastefully finished in soft muted tones, accentuating the striking exposed ceiling trusses and beams above. Rustle up romantic meals for two in the modern kitchen area, which contains everything you could need and more, before dining together at the table nearby. After a long and tiring day on foot, fire up the wood burner and hunker down in the cosy lounge area and enjoy an evening of TV while your pooch snoozes happily at your feet. From here, bi-folding doors open onto a delightful private terrace with a BBQ and spectacular views across the North York Moors.

 

Set on the very edge of the North York Moors, this rural retreat is the perfect base from which to explore this spectacular expanse of unspoilt countryside. Stroll across rolling hills with the pooch, stopping for a bite to eat and a browse of the independent shops in nearby Kirkbymoorside (1.5 miles), Pickering (9 miles) or Helmsley (7.5 miles). From Pickering, catch the iconic North York Moors Railway to the seaside town of Whitby (29.5 miles), taking in the breathtaking moorland scenery en route.

We had a fabulous stay at The Escape, and Jane was a really lovely host. Nothing was too much trouble, and the home grown beans we were able to pick were the cherry on the top! The cottage is perfectly located in the midst of stunning countryside, yet only a few minutes drive to the lovely little town of Kirkbymoorside. Our primary reason for choosRead moreing to stay in North Yorks was to go to Ryedale Festival - The Escape is within easy reach all the main venues, including Hovingham & Castle Howard. Hide

The cottage had everything we needed and Jane was on hand whenever we needed her. The welcome pack was appreciated and the meal she made was delicious. The views were fantastic. The local pub - the Royal Oak did fab food but it is a good 20-25 minute walk away along an unlit unmade road so not advisable in the dark!

The cottage was in a great location on a farm, just outside Kirkbymoorside and within walking distance of Gillamoor. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable for two people. The host was welcoming and provided a welcome pack of basics for the kitchen. The location was ideal for us, as there are plenty of options for walking directly from Read morethe site, with villages like Hutton Le Hole within walking distance. There are also a number of places of interest within a short drive from the site Hide
