An ideal country retreat for two people up a dead end lane. Comfortable conditions (upside down with lounge upstairs).Everything you need, plenty of parking, only drawback we thought was lack of any extended views but never the less a good base for the area of Ryedale and N Yorks Moors.

This is an unusual place to stay (a converted tack room)set down a lane in beautiful countryside. The bedroom and bathroom are downstairs and the kitchen/dining area and lounge are upstairs. The accommodation had recently been converted, so all the fittings and furniture were new and of a high standard. The owners were on site at the farm, and were very helpful, but you still retained privacy. The accommodation was well heated and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again if we were in the area. It was well located and Helmsley is a lovely market town only a few minutes drive away.
