Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 2 nights low season & 3 nights high season
This striking one bedroom property is located on the west wing of a newly renovated and extended family home. The Owl House, is a converted Elizabethan cruck beamed barn that dates back to around the 16th century. With its own private entrance and garden this delightful retreat is a must for anyone wanting to soak up the beauty of the North Yorkshire countryside in comfort and luxury.
You'll make your way to the property via a short private driveway, through a five bar gate and past stables which currently belong to Leo, the owners' lovable old horse. When you enter you'll discover a beautiful light-filled, open plan area on two levels, decorated with lovely eclectic pieces of furniture and a big comfy sofa and chairs. One of the property's most eye catching features is a stunning floor to ceiling window which provides wonderful views all the way across the vale of Pickering to the Howardian Hills in the distance.
The lovely handmade wood kitchen is equipped with everything you could need to cook a delicious feast and has an extendable dining table with seating for four guests. You'll be able to enjoy the view with a glass of wine whilst you cook, and if the weather is nice there are French doors that open directly onto your garden, an ideal place to eat whilst enjoying the regularly spectacular sunsets. The bathroom features a luxury walk-in ceiling mounted rain shower, heated towel rail and Scandi style teak vanity unit. Underfloor heating runs throughout the ground floor, making the limestone flags wonderfully warm under foot.
When it's time for bed the mezzanine bedroom is reached via a wooden staircase with continuing views across the Vale through the double height glazed gable end window. Two stylish and comfy leather chairs face out over the view and the owners have thoughtfully provided binoculars and a record player so you can while away some time exploring whilst listening to music. This is also a great spot to watch local wildlife with your morning coffee. The super king size bed has an award-winning memory foam mattress to ensure a great night's kip and you can choose to wake up to the glorious Yorkshire countryside or make use of the blackout blinds if you're more of a cave sleeper.
In the morning head out and help yourself to some fresh laid eggs from the chicken coop and enjoy a truly organic breakfast before heading out to explore. There's a lovely walk through the woodland, a kitchen garden where you can pick seasonal produce and an outdoor pizza oven meaning you can make your own pizzas to enjoy with a cold beer.
You're perfectly placed to visit the North Yorkshire moors, Whitby, Scarborough and the market towns of Malton and the very pretty, Helmsley. If you fancy eating out try the Beadlam Grange Fram shop and tea room and for a cosy pub meal the Blacksmith Arms is a brilliant Yorkshire pub with flat caps hanging from the ceiling.
For nights in there's a TV with free fibre broadband which has Netflix, Disney and Amazon Prime but if you want a break from electronics please take advantage of the classic board games and books provided for your enjoyment.
