Hunker down in this romantic couple’s bolthole with your other half plus up to two canine companions for a relaxing break in the Yorkshire countryside where you’ll be surrounded by scenic walking routes in the North York Moors National Park, historical landmarks and quaint market towns while also having the coast within reach. This converted barn boasts vaulted beamed ceilings, elegant country-style decor, a warming wood burner and a garden.

Step inside to find a spacious, bright open-plan studio living space with two large glass patio doors, dark wooden beams and a splash of rich reds and greens throughout.

Woodpecker view is such a peaceful place, and well supported by the Woodpeckers flying about and enjoying their daily supply of peanuts! So relaxing and far away from road noise and traffic. Pickering is a particularly lovely place to spend a few days of your holiday.
