This beautifully converted red brick barn, dating to the Regency period is set amidst stunning scenery on the edge of the North York Moors National Park in a quiet, rural location, on the owner’s working suckler herd farm.
The Roost provides a wonderful tranquil retreat from which to recharge your batteries, but is within easy access to the pretty market towns of Helmsley, Pickering, Malton and Thirsk. Sympathetically converted to provide comfortable accommodation, this characterful property features original beams, wood burner and sun room with stone flagged floor. Elegantly furnished with a Yorkshire feel, this property is homely and inviting ensuring a memorable holiday.
Entry is via the sun room, the ideal place to relax and enjoy a drink. The underfloor heating ensures this room can be enjoyed throughout the year and your four-legged friend will enjoy lying on the floor getting warm after a long day exploring the North York Moors National Park. The open plan living accommodation can be found on the first floor and is simply stunning. The kingsize bed is nestled to the rear of the room and is situated in front of a large floor-to-ceiling picture window, providing beautiful views across to the river and beyond. The farmhouse-style kitchen and dining area is off to one side and the huge wood burner is surrounded by a Chesterfield sofa.
Outside is a private garden offering both a lawn and patio area, an idyllic spot to sit and relax. Why not collect your own freshly laid eggs from the free range chickens to enjoy a healthy start to your day, or pick some of the many herbs available to help create some delicious home cooked recipes? Guests also have access to kennel facilities with the owners offering ‘doggy day care’ (at extra cost) should you wish to enjoy a day out or a romantic evening meal without your four legged friend.
This beautiful part of North Yorkshire is a walkers and cyclist’s paradise, with miles of footpaths, cycle routes and bridle ways not to mention the Coast-to-Coast and Cleveland Way paths. On the doorstep is Castle Howard, home to ‘Brideshead Revisited’ and ITV’s ‘Victoria’, Byland and Rievaulx Abbey, Helmsley Castle and the National Bird of Prey Centre. For those wishing for a little more history and culture the historic city of York is only a 40-minute drive away and a little further afield is the North Yorkshire coast and seaside towns of Whitby, Scarborough and Bridlington. This property offers an ideal base for a romantic break away. Beach 24½ miles. Shop 4 miles, pub 500 yards and restaurant 6 miles.
