The property

A superb, detached upside down barn conversion in a courtyard setting in the pretty village of Snainton.

Immaculately presented throughout, this Snainton cottage would suit couples or a small family wanting to enjoy both the stunning countryside and the nearby coastal resorts of Scarborough and Filey.

Boasting first-class accommodation, each room has been tastefully furnished and styled, creating a warm and welcoming ambience in this Snainton cottage.

On the first floor, the spacious open plan living area retains original beams in the pitched roof, with oak flooring and doors and handcrafted, bespoke furniture, whilst the quirky wrought iron staircase leads down to two charming bedrooms and a modern travertine tiled bathroom.

From the fitted kitchen in this Snainton cottage, a glass door leads to external steps to a sheltered, south-facing patio, ideal for alfresco dining.

A five minute walk brings you to the two local inns serving real ale and good food and a fish and chip shop.

Based in a wonderful location, this Snainton cottage is close to Dalby Forest, with walking and cycling tracks, whilst the vibrant seaside town of Scarborough is a few minutes' drive, with its sandy beaches, pretty parks and the famous Stephen Joseph Theatre.

In the local vicinity there are numerous excellent restaurants to sample and the historic market towns of Pickering and Helmsley to visit.

Why not take a trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, which meanders through the heather clad moors, or enjoy a day out to the Viking city of York?

A splendid Snainton cottage for everyone to enjoy.
