The property

Kirkbymoorside 3.6 miles.

Positioned within a beautiful and quiet courtyard setting, on the southerly fringes of the North York Moors National Park, is Barn Cottage.

This beautiful homestay rests in the hamlet of Marton, just outside of Kirkbymoorside, giving you access to Helmsley, Pickering and so much more.

Stone-built, with a pantile roof, this converted barn offers a family of four or a group of friends the opportunity to explore a wonderful region of Yorkshire.

Park up your car in front of the garage or directly in front of the cottage and step into the hallway, where you can kick off your walking boots and hang your coats after a brisk countryside trail.

This then leads through to a modern kitchen, complete with lovely fitted units and a large dresser, in which you can stock all of your favourite treats.

You will get rather a homely feel from this room, perfect for family dinners around the dining table.

Once you have finished a home-cooked meal, you can head into the cosy sitting room and unwind with your loved ones, choosing to watch a programme on the Free Sat TV or simply chat over the day you've just had.

The oak flooring and beautiful stone fireplace add bundles of character to the cottage, allowing you to make the most of a country cottage getaway.

Upstairs is a double bedroom and a twin with zip/link beds, both containing fitted wardrobes and served by the family bathroom.

Outside, the enclosed garden offers a delightful little suntrap with a lawn and seating to relax on.

This charming hamlet of Marton gives you splendid access to a variety of walking trails and cycling routes, as well as days out along the Heritage Coast, with Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay within easy reach.

Kirkbymoorside offers plenty of amenities such as tea rooms, pubs and restaurants.

Head to Pickering and ride the steam train through scenic countryside or explore the city of York, with its shops, medieval cathedral and many vibrant eateries serving delicious food.

With so much to see and do in the area, this makes a wonderful choice for your next UK holiday.
