The property

Cross Hills 1 mile.

Nestled within the rural village of Glusburn, you will find the striking cottage of Ryecroft Barn.

Sitting peacefully on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, this magnificent holiday home makes a great base for larger groups who seek a relaxing retreat in the English countryside.

As you pull up, admire the charm of this traditional stone barn, complete with a striking front door.

Step into the hallway and be greeted by a well-thought utility room where you can take off your coats and store your shoes.

Enter into the wonderful farmhouse kitchen with lovely blue and oak units where you will find a spacious American-style fridge freezer and a contemporary electric oven and hob, perfect for preparing a heart-warming meal for the whole family to feast upon in the homely dining room boasting a large mahogany dining table and pretty exposed stone wall with inglenook fireplace.

Retire to the warm embrace of the sitting room where you can cosy up by the electric fire on the plush leather sofa, and turn on the TV to watch a captivating movie, or retreat to the peaceful snug to curl up on the armchair with an enthralling book.

Spend your evenings catching up in the delightfully decorated conservatory with chic teal walls, as you kick back and relax on the sofas and crack open a bottle of wine to toast to the good times that lie ahead.

Step out into the garden to watch as the sun begins to set over the rolling countryside and take a moment to appreciate time well-spent with your loved ones.

As the evening comes to a close, wander through to the imposing gallery with high ceilings, exposed beams and a breath-taking stained glass window and climb the grand staircase to the first floor where you will discover a spacious family bedroom home to both a double and a single bed, as well as another attractive family room with double and single bed with the benefit of an en-suite and a dressing area so you can take your time to get ready in the mornings following a refreshing shower.

The first floor is also home to two twin bedrooms.

While away the hours as you indulge in a soak in the luxurious corner Jacuzzi bath located in the family bathroom before putting on your best walking gear and heading outside to explore the local area.

Start your day with a glorious hike through the Yorkshire Dales National Park and stumble upon the historical ruins of the 15th-century Barden Tower and the 17th-century Rocking Hall.

Wander the grounds of the nearby Skipton Castle and learn of the local history at The Craven Museum, before stopping for a bite to eat at The Royal Shepherd Inn and delighting in a pint with the locals.

Enjoy a peaceful stroll through Thornton Hall Country Park or explore Niddderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for unrivalled landscapes.
