This superb, stone barn conversion is situated on a quiet country lane, mid-way between the pretty villages of Egton and Aislaby, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park.
With glorious views from all windows, reaching across the Esk Valley, the property is the perfect place to stay for those wanting a peaceful and relaxing environment, while still being within a few minute’s drive of the popular seaside town of Whitby and the many attractions this wonderful area has to offer.
Beautifully presented, Coopers Barn has a spacious open plan living area, which incorporates a well-equipped, bespoke hand-built kitchen with wooden worktops and a Belfast sink.
The dining table is in the middle and enables guests to enjoy a leisurely meal whilst soaking up the view; the comfortable sitting area has quality leather sofas and chairs.

This leads up to a mezzanine landing and two very pretty bedrooms, both with en-suites.
Outside is a private cobbled courtyard - a sunny and sheltered spot to sit with a glass of wine, watch the wonderful sunsets or the steam trains passing in the valley below.
There is also a furnished balcony outside the kitchen where you can sit and enjoy the beautiful views.
The surrounding area is a walker's paradise, with a network of footpaths and trails through the stunning moorland scenery, including a 20-minute walk to the nearby pub, an excellent choice for good food.
A visit to Whitby is a must, with its quaint narrow streets, famous abbey and long, sandy beaches.
Wander down to the historic harbour, visit the Captain Cook Museum, or enjoy an evening's ghost walk!
With the dramatic coastline to explore and the market towns of Pickering, Helmsley and Malton close by, Cooper's Barn provides an excellent base, all year round.

The village of Egton is set in the heart of the North York Moors. With its pretty sandstone cottages, this charming village is famous for the annual Gooseberry and Agricultural shows held in August. Between them, the villages of Egton and Egton Bridge have four pubs, a shop and garage. Egton Bridge is one of Yorkshire’s prettiest villages, beautifully positioned on the River Esk in a steep sided valley. Visit the famous church of St Hedda with its painted ceiling, walk through the beautiful Arncliffe Woods, or explore the Old Mill and stepping-stones on the Esk. It is also well situated to explore the spectacular North York Moors, Whitby, and the many small fishing villages that dot this part of the coastline. A superb location for a relaxing break.
