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. Other nearby attractions include the historic Castle Howard (13.5 miles) and Rievaulx Abbey (10.5 miles).

The property has an enviable location, sitting within a farm on the cusp of the North York Moors. This gorgeous rural setting is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much of which you can see from the property. There are no less than three established footpaths leading directly from the farm across stunning countryside to neighbouring villages and towns including a lovely walk to Hutton-Le-Hole. Stop for lunch at a pub before taking a tour around the Ryedale Museum or Chocolate Factory!

The cottage is close to Gillamoor, an attractive North York Moors village with a local village pub. Just over a mile south takes you to the pretty town of Kirkbymoorside which has much to offer including a gallery, antique shops, tea rooms, deli, wine shop and butchers. There's also a great market on Wednesdays. From there you can move on to the vibrant and attractive Yorkshire market towns of Pickering (10 miles) and Helmsley (8 miles), both of which have an abundance of good restaurants, tea rooms and independent shops.

Beyond the farm lies the North York Moors. A landscape like no other, it's a place of gently rolling hills of heather, ancient woodlands and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. If you want to get away from it all take a trip to the top of the high central moorlands. The famous Blakey Ridge affords some of the best views in the country and is just a few miles from the cottage. And if walking is your thing, you are surrounded on all sides by some truly stunning routes.

The property is also close to the North Yorkshire Coast, with the gothic town of Whitby (30 miles) and the picture-postcard fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay 35 miles away. Take a day trip here and experiences the sights, sounds and tastes of Yorkshire's coastline. Fish 'n Chips at the Magpie Cafe is a must!
