The cottage is set in the rolling Howardian Hills in the western reaches of the North York Moors. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns. The very pretty village of Hovingham is just a 2-mile drive and features several pubs, a tea room and local store.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley (10 miles) is also close by and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering you'll find a fantastic day spa here - perfect for a little indulgence!

You're also close to Castle Howard (4 miles), York (20 miles) and the North Yorkshire coast (30 miles), so there is lots of choice for day trips.

This cottage is one of the best we have visited. The perfect place for a relaxing break, nicely located for short walks to local pubs across the fields. Highly recommend The Hovingham Inn. We so enjoyed the property and its facilities, that we only left to walk for lunch.

Our second visit to the barn conversions. Last year we stayed in The Haybarn and this year The Stables. Absolute comfort and the furnishings and kitchen are lovely. Stuart always leaves a welcome hamper and the Molton Brown toiletries are a lovely touch. Spa gown and slippers too so you feel really pampered when you are heading back and forth to thRead moree hot tub. Would definitely recommend Hide

Beautiful converted barn. Everything you could think of was taken care of. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped. The beds were comfortable. The sofas big and comfy. The bathrooms luxurious. The courtyard garden was beautiful with matured plants and shrubs and a good size. Lovely walks right from the door. We particularly enjoyed the walk to Read morethe nearest pub in Slingsby which does good food and is both child and dog friendly. The communal facilities were outstanding. Hide
