This spacious former cow shed situated on the owner's working farm in rural Yorkshire has been wonderfully converted to provide the ideal escape for a couple to explore this stunning part of Yorkshire.

Nestled on the edge of Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this rural barn conversion is ideally situated for walkers of all abilities. With so many tracks and trails nearby, you will be spoilt for choice. The stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is close by, as are the magnificent formations at Brimham Rocks, only 1.5 miles from this cottage. The vibrant spa town of Harrogate is only an 8-mile drive away where you can browse the shops and cafes or grab a bite to eat at one of the many pubs and restaurants. Other great days out nearby include Fountains Abbey and Ripley Castle, both within 10 miles, and slightly further afield at 25 miles away, the ancient city of York.

Stepping into this spacious barn conversion, you are greeted by an entrance hall, the perfect place to leave coats and muddy boots after a winter’s walk. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner has French patio doors where, on a nice day, you can open the doors and admire the lovely views. Sit on the comfortable sofas or at the dining table and unwind after a long day exploring. The kitchen area is equipped with everything you need, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The bedroom is large and boasts a super-king-size zip-and-link bed (can be made up as twins on request). To complete the property is a bathroom with shower over the bath and WC.

Externally, there is a private patio area with furniture, a charcoal BBQ and a large, shared, lawned garden with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. Guests have access to a shared utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is off-road parking for one car and secure cycle storage available.
