Newly renovated in 2022, this detached barn is in a secluded location within the countryside. It is a charming place, full of Yorkshire character and in a wonderful destination to explore with families and friends. The location of the property means you are just 3 miles from the amenities of Kirkbymoorside, offering a range of independent shops, and a weekly market, complemented by a selection of pubs and places to eat, and 6 miles from the beautiful market town of Helmsley, with the stunning Helmsley Castle and Rievaulx Abbey. The village of Harome, with two well-known restaurants, is close by. Cyclists will enjoy exploring the Kirkdale and Kirkbymoorside Cycle Route, while the North York Moors National Park is a haven for walkers. Pickering (10.5 miles) is the base of the North York Moors Steam Railway – a day out for all in the area. Castle Howard is only 9 miles away, while York, and the Yorkshire Coast are within a 27-mile radius.

This thoughtfully furnished stone-built barn is situated beside the owners' grounds and surrounded by peaceful farmland. Follow a pathway to your retreat. Internally, the property retains many original features along with countless contemporary touches to give this a real high-quality feel. Step inside to the entrance where you will find a place to hang your coat and a bench to remove your shoes. Your feet will feel the warmth of the underfloor heating in this space. A delightful, social open-plan living area showing off the original beamed ceilings and stone walls creates a place where you will spend the majority of your time. Here you have the kitchen, lounge area and a large dining area with a view towards the garden and fields beyond. Perch on a bar stool whilst the chef of the group creates a delicious home-cooked dinner. The kitchen is generously equipped with every essential and more including a wine cooler to chill your bottle of fizz. The large dining table comfortably fits everyone around for mealtimes – open up the wall to wall sliding doors on summer nights to the patio, extending your space and making it excellent for entertaining. After dinner, wind down on the comfy sofas and choose a movie to watch on the 65" Smart TV or connect your music to the soundbar. When it's time to retire, venture down the hallway to one of the three bedrooms, all with private en-suite facilities. Each room features a super-king-sized zip-and-link bed (which can be twins on request) and are individually and beautifully styled. Each room has a door leading to the patio, where you can sit on a bench and enjoy a quiet morning brew. There is also a separate WC.

The barn is beautiful, everything is really good quality. The beds are comfortable and the showers are great. The living area is very spacious, plenty of room for six people.
