An exquisite quaint barn conversion tucked away in the breathtaking Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering a truly tranquil getaway for two in a romantic countryside setting.

This luxury escape sits within a small hamlet, surrounded by stunning countryside and pretty villages boasting quaint cafes, welcoming pubs and walking trails aplenty. Perfectly situated to explore the Howardian Hills and the North York Moors National Park, you can expect breathtaking scenery as far as the eye can see as you uncover this beautiful part of the country. The nearby village of Hovingham (3 miles) is home to a couple of traditional pubs and a wonderful tea room you can visit during your stay. Head 4 miles south to stop by the award-winning lavender farm, home to a deer, a sculpture park and quaint tea room. What's more, you are 17 miles from the medieval city of York and all of its delightful attractions.

 

This romantic cottage ticks all the boxes when it comes to interiors, location and charm; the perfect choice for couples looking to enjoy a stylish countryside escape. Step inside to discover an elegant open-plan living space, home to the lounge, kitchen and dining area. The cosy lounge boasts a stylish wood burner to curl up beside during the colder months, so you can sink into the plush sofa and truly unwind. The compact dining/kitchen area comes fully-equipped with all the amenities you'll require to rustle up and enjoy some home cooking with fresh produce you've picked up from the nearby market towns. Following a day of discovery, retreat to the surprisingly spacious and undeniably romantic bedroom, decorated in a French style to create a plush space to recharge. The bedroom enjoys an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower, a perfect start to the day.

 

Outside, you will find a generous garden boasting a lawn and pretty flower beds. During the summer months, throw out a picnic blanket and bask in the Yorkshire sunshine, or sit back and relax on the sun loungers. There's also a mini orchard with plum and apple trees to wander around, as well as a 7ft herb garden of which guests are welcome to dip into when cooking up a storm with local produce. If you're lucky, you might spot some wildlife in the surrounding area. The cottage offers off-road parking.
