For those who love the open countryside, long walks and nature, The Barn is the perfect spot to stay. Set within the North York Moors National Park and on a working sheep farm, it has everything for the great outdoors fanatic. The owners, who live adjacent, have renovated the old hay barn and have thought of everything, even down to dogs having their own private doggy shower room, so you can wash them off after a long walk in the beautiful countryside.

This detached property has been designed to make the most of the wonderful views across the dale, with large panoramic windows which leave you mesmerised by the view. All the bedrooms have private en-suite bath or shower rooms, and are decorated and furnished to a very good standard. The living room has a cosy wood burner and French doors leading out to the enclosed garden and patio area, and there is also a galleried reading area overlooking the living room. The master bedroom on the first floor once again captures the stunning views of the open countryside.

The Barn is ideally placed to visit the east coast of Yorkshire, with Scarborough, Whitby and Filey all just a short drive away. Scarborough is the nearest resort, with its long Marine Drive that takes you from North Bay to South Bay, passing the castle perched on the clifftop. The two bays are very contrasting, but one thing they both have in common is that they both have an excellent sandy beach. Scarborough has lots to offer, from excellent restaurants, shopping, a waterpark with a large wave pool and outdoor infinity pool, and of course the cricket festival.

The North York Moors National Park is also home to the Dalby Forest, with over 8,000 acres of woodland to explore and plenty of cycle and walking trails for all abilities. The Dalby Forest mountain biking track has hosted the world cup, so you will find some challenging runs there. It is also the home of the Go Ape adventure park, which is great for the children.

Within the hour you can be in the medieval city of York, with its picturesque streets and historic buildings. The city is voted every year as being one of the top 10 cities to visit. There are street entertainers, independent shops and cafes to enjoy, as well as museums and theatres. There is so much to see and do in the area, a week will not be long enough in this beautiful home! Beach 4 miles. Shop and restaurant 4 miles, pub 3 miles.

About the local area

Scarborough is situated at the southern end of the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and, together with Filey, offers beautiful beaches, coastal walks and a variety of entertainment for the whole family.

Scarborough is a town of two halves, with South Bay full of amusement arcades, fish and chip shops and donkey rides, whilst the more genteel North Bay is home to several parks and grand Victorian buildings. The whole family will want to take a trip on the miniature North Bay Railway, which will take you to Sea Life Centre and to the Historic Water Chute and Boating Lake.

Filey is a small traditional seaside town, home to an award-winning museum and a nature reserve that is a haven for wild birds. The town is situated at the eastern end of The Cleveland Way, a long- distance footpath that skirts the Yorkshire Moors and has many beautiful walks with stunning views to offer. Kids will love visiting the Alpamare waterpark for all kinds of aquatic fun, with slides, waves and much more to enjoy. 

Within easy reach is the famous Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, which has something to offer every member of the family, from thrilling white-knuckle rides to children's entertainment. For something really out of the ordinary, pay a visit to Pesky Husky, where you can take part in a kennel tour followed by walk or even a trek with these charismatic dogs.
