    One of three luxury retreats on the site with a driveway that is lined with pretty blossom trees in spring, Rabbitdale Barn provides a tranquil escape for families or couples. Unwind in the private hot tub while admiring the stunning views over Rabbit Dale, or retreat to the cosy living room for an evening of relaxation with your nearest and dearest. Should you wish to explore the area, there is an abundance of walking and cycling routes on the doorstep or you can venture to the historic city of York for a family-friendly day out.

  • The space

    The barn begins with a warm and inviting living room, complete with large patio doors, exposed wooden beams and underfloor heating for that extra cosy touch. Relax and unwind on the sofas with the ambient sound of the log-effect fireplace or admire the breathtaking views over Rabbit Dale and the Yorkshire Wolds . There is also a Smart TV should you wish to catch up on your favourite programmes with a morning coffee.

    Meanwhile, the country-style kitchen/dining room provides all the essentials you would expect including a Rayburn, a fridge/freezer, an electric oven and hob, a microwave and a dishwasher. Homemade bread and artisan pizzas can also be made to order with plenty of notice and at an additional fee if you don't feel like cooking.

    There are two beautiful bedrooms, each with elegant décor and quality bed linen. The master bedroom is accessed via a small set of steps and features a super-king-size bed and an en-suite shower room and a roll-top bath, while the large twin bedroom comprises an en-suite shower room.

    Outside, you will have access to a south-facing garden with views over Rabbit Dale and a private hot tub. When the sun is shining, prepare a delicious alfresco meal on the Kamando Joe BBQ or relax with a crisp glass of wine in hand.
