Peacefully situated in the Yorkshire Wolds, inspiration for David Hockney’s famous paintings, this semi-detached, spacious, converted barn offers holiday accommodation ideal for large families and groups of friends. Renovated to a very good standard with exposed beams and stone flagged floors the property enjoys modern day comforts, with its well equipped kitchen, tastefully furnished bedrooms and high specification bathroom and en-suites, with multi-jet showers.

    We booked the cottage for a special family occasion and it was everything we wanted and more. Absolutely spotless and extremely spacious. The owners have thought about everything you may need and everyone that stayed said that they were really impressed with the booking. We will definatly be returning.

    Fantastic cottage - so much space and comfort. Couldn't have asked for more. Unbelievably well presented, with lots of little extras I wouldn't normally expect. The location is perfect if you want to be off-the-beaten-track, but not so good if you want to be close to amenities. There isn't anything within walking distance.

    The cottage is very luxurious, but still very comfortable and Kath has thought of everything from leaving us milk in the fridge, with tea coffee and sugar, down to fresh flowers in the lounge. We especially liked the birds and other wildlife that we saw.

    Well Head Barn is very clean well maintained holiday home, very quiet considering it's on a working farm. The views were stunning and being central for York or the Coast as travelling times were pretty much the same. If you want local shops this is not the place to go , so take your provisions with you.
