Cottage Description

Welcome to Yorkshire Member

Many small streams and becks, with their sources on the low flanks of the Pennines eventually converge to form the River Laver. Here sits Grewelthorpe, a pretty village with a central green, pond and pub.  Just outside the village in elevated verdant countryside between the high western hills and the Vale of York is Thorpe House and its associated barns and farm buildings. The Hay Barn is a recent and innovative barn conversion adjacent to the main house with its own walled garden.

Entry from the garden is to a stunning, spacious and very well equipped fitted kitchen and dining area with stone flagged floor, beamed ceiling and wood-burning stove on a raised hearth backed by a Victorian fireplace. Off the kitchen is a large, comfortable lounge with beamed ceiling and polished wood floor. Through the lounge is a bedroom with twin beds which views out over surrounding fields towards Kirkby Malzeard.

An open pine stairway rises from the kitchen to a small landing serving an interesting double bedroom with a skylight, to watch the night stars, as well as windows to take in the views and a beautiful shower room with large shower and sprinkler, washbasin and toilet.

The Hay Barn has been meticulously and lovingly converted with attention to detail and a desire to uphold tradition yet provide modern comfort. The exposure of original features such as stained beams, exposed stonework and natural woodwork embellish the rich character of this unusual home. The cottage stands amid tranquil rolling countryside in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on a working farm with easy access, even on foot, to local villages and their facilities. It is within a short drive to Masham, Ripon, Bedale, Harrogate and of course the Yorkshire Dales National Park plus a multitude of other renowned holiday attractions.
