Rural, beautifully converted barn for 2, peaceful farm, stunning views
This gorgeous bolthole is set in the heart of pretty Ryedale and the Vale of Pickering surrounded by rolling countryside. It was completely refurbished in 2016 to a very high standard. Perfect for relaxing weekends, walkers, cyclists, a romantic retreat or a culture-filled experience with excellent restaurants and places to visit nearby to include a first class local pub serving delicious food within walking distance.
The Granary comprises a spacious one bedroom cottage with a Vi-spring mattress on a super king sized bed, Egyptian cotton bed linen, antique pine furniture, art on the walls and a beautiful view across the open fields of the arable farm. It has a brand new eat-in kitchen and a new tasteful bathroom with a separate walk-in shower and White Company towels. The large sitting room has a wood burner for cosy evenings (logs included), a large sofa and armchair, fresh flowers, coffee tables, all furnished with the owners' art, antiques and collectables.
Set at the end of a private road off a country lane, this is unquestionably peaceful and idyllic in its setting and is full of character. It adjoins the main house at the very end of the property to ensure it retains its privacy but the owners are on hand to offer advice and local knowledge, having grown up in the local area.
It has a fenced and (mostly patio) garden, with table and chairs, stunning views across towards the North York Moors and a wood-burning brazier to keep warm or to use as a barbecue.
The holiday home is just 5 miles from the bustling market town of Malton, and Pickering, nestled between the Howardian Hills and the Moors. Helmsley is only 20 minutes away and was just awarded 'best market town in Britain'. It also has easy access to the historic city of York and is only 40 minutes from the spectacular North East coast with seaside towns such as Whitby, Filey and Scarborough to explore. Historic stately homes of Castle Howard, Duncombe Park and Nunnington Hall are only a few miles away. We are also very close to the North York Moors National Park, Dalby Forest and other local attractions such as Eden Camp.
You enter The Granary through the garden, to a sheltered front door (all brand new external windows and doors) which leads into a small hall. The bathroom with WC, basin, bath and separate shower is to your left and the kitchen straight ahead with dining table and amenities listed below. The corridor then leads onto the large bedroom and spacious sitting room. All internal doors are reclaimed pine, carpets, rugs and tiling all fitted this year.
