Standing peacefully in the heart of picturesque Ryedale, this carefully converted detached barn offers superb quality spacious holiday accommodation perfect for families and groups of friends. Situated in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are walking and cycling tracks in abundance, an ideal way to enjoy the stunning scenery, quaint villages and market towns. Hovingham (3 miles) is the ancestral home of the Duchess of Kent and this picturesque village has a bakery where visitors can enjoy freshly baked bread and pies. The magnificent 18th-century house at Castle Howard, location for the filming of Brideshead Revisited is close by and hosts annual events and concerts, has an award-winning farm shop and beautiful gardens. Local places of interest include Nunnington Hall, Rievaulx Abbey, Eden Camp Museum and Flamingo Land, and you can find out about their opening times on one of the touch screen computers we provide. Helmsley (10 miles), with its Walled Garden, Duncombe Park and an open-air swimming pool (summer season only), has a variety of individual shops, inns and traditional tea shops, and from Pickering (13 miles) you can board the famous steam train and travel through the scenic North Yorks Moors National Park to the fishing resort of Whitby. Along the Heritage Coast there are miles of sandy beaches and smugglers’ coves can be found at Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay. The historic walled city of York (20 miles) holds irresistible appeal for all ages with its minster, castle and railway museums, Jorvik centre, river cruises and ghost walks. Shops and pub 1½ miles.

A very comfortable, well-equipped cottage, especially the kitchen. Well positioned for large area of North Yorkshire; we enjoyed staying there, with a great deal to see and do. Lovely area. A few small minus points, cobwebs obvious in parts, some of cottage information out of date, including on recycling and number of bins was inadequate for size of household (trip to recycling in Malton). Chairs peeling. Otherwise, spacious and comfortable. Note that care needs to be taken on entrance/exit to main road because of proximity of brow of the hill.

Problem with the tv in the lounge, could not get it to work. Too complicated and out of date. Could be simplified and clearer in operations. Difficulty in contacting the owner for entry instructions, caused unwanted stress.

Beautiful accommodation in a beautiful location. Easy access to surrounding towns and villages. The cottage is extremely well equipped, especially the kitchen! We had a lovely week and would definitely go back to Wandale barn.
