A superb and luxurious barn conversion - this is truly beautiful!
We love the spacious, open plan 'living' kitchen, which is a stylish, fully-equipped kitchen with electric double oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, cream painted units, granite work surfaces and an island with a seating area nearby – you can sit and relax on the sofa with a glass of wine whilst watching the cook, cook!
There is a dining area with seating to look out over the pretty courtyard with its central water feature and plants and beyond towards to stunning Yorkshire Wolds, famous for its amazing walks amid beautiful scenery.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor; a double bedroom with king size bed, bathroom with a bath with shower over, WC and hand wash basin plus a twin bedroom with a large walk-in shower, WC and hand wash basin. A cot and high chair can be made available for the use of guests but can this please be requested at the time of booking. Guests are requested to provide their own cot linens.
The stairs lead to stunning, a vast, beamed sitting room with a large Smart TV and DVD player, flame effect fire and large, comfortable sofas. There is also a separate area, with a table and chairs at the far side, framed by the floor-to-ceiling window, to sit and enjoy the view - an excellent spot to sit and read or just gaze out over the lush countryside opposite.
On this floor is a king size double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with bath and hand held shower, WC and hand wash basin as well as another smart twin bedroom, again with en-suite shower room with shower, WC and hand wash basin.
The Old Barn is in a lovely gated courtyard with parking and a gravelled driveway, a pretty central fountain surrounded by flowering plants, plus a terrace outside the property that has a table and chairs, where you can sit and enjoy drinks and meals in the open air.
The indoor heated swimming pool is fabulous – during late afternoon the sun fills the pool area and the deep blue water shimmers in the light. There is a smart changing area for both males and females and the water is warm, you can sit and enjoy a good read on one of the loungers.
There are also two loungers outside the pool, where weather permitting you can lie back and soak up the sun!
