Property code: G0159
This property was once the hay barn in a dairy farm and is now a gorgeous large holiday home in the Yorkshire Dales, with a luxurious interior and incredible views.
Welcome to the Yorkshire Dales, where you and your friends or family will enjoy the best of British food, landscape, history and adventure. Part of a cluster of properties, a mile from the sweet village of Gilling West, you're both secluded and part of a community. Rural echoes abound in this cosy yet contemporary haven, far away from the stresses of modern life. The closest large town is Richmond (4 miles), with its ruined Norman castle, Georgian Theatre Royal, museums, gardens and markets. You'll be at the heart of five magnificent reserves: The North Pennines, Nidderdale and Howardian Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (15/20/40 miles), and the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks (10/25 miles) – opening up five unique and thrilling worlds for exploration, rock climbing, kayaking, horse riding, mountain biking, abseiling and hiking. Discover the sublime environments of Hudswell Woods and Upper Wharfedale (5 miles).
This grand barn conversion is a gem of love and craft. Gather your group around the glowing open fire and plan your coming adventures. The open-plan lounge/diner is a space of light with a warm, homely ambience made up of exposed stone walls, exquisite wood and leather and marvellous North Yorkshire views. Gregarious nights of wine and bright morning coffee will cap your days of discovery. Cooks will rejoice at the streamlined kitchen's sunlit breakfast table and luscious green scenes. After al fresco banquets on the front terrace or in the rear, south-facing courtyard, seek steam and soft linen in your own private paradise; each of the five large bedrooms has its own en-suite, and most of the rooms have fabulous, far-reaching vistas of the surrounding countryside. One bedroom has a freestanding bath and sleeps up to four people in four full-size beds. The courtyard's hot tub is calling weary limbs. Roam the estate and meet the resident wildlife, or walk to the church and the village pub for a nightcap and to discuss what to do tomorrow.
