At Gayles Hall Barn you will find Sheep Dip; a striking two-bedroom country house sitting next door to its big brother Shearing Shed. Located in the rural village of Gayles, North Yorkshire, Sheep Dip is surrounded by the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales. This is a large and luxurious self-catering home, perfect for any small group or family looking for rural bliss.
The heart of this Yorkshire holiday home is the welcoming farmhouse-style kitchen. It has a blend of original character features including oak beams and reclaimed furnishings to create a timeless feel. There is a large kitchen island, perfect to gather around with a glass of wine from the built-in wine cooler, or over a morning coffee. The cupboards are filled with all the crockery, kitchenware and glasses you will need for a luxury self-catering break. The kitchen includes a hob, electric ovens, fridge freezer and a dishwasher.
Next door is a large stylish living and dining area, with plenty of design-led contemporary interiors and lovingly restored traditional features. You will enjoy the log burning stove, while large glass windows frame the uninterrupted far-reaching views of the Dales beyond. There is no better spot to put your feet up, after a day exploring the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales.
The separate boot room is handy for storing muddy shoes after a day out adventuring and has a large sink. In here you will also find the washing machine and dryer.
The master bedroom flaunts fashionable grey hues with a king size bed. Lazy lie-ins are the most tempting way to spend your morning, that is before opening the large patio doors straight out onto the private garden terrace. Next door is a stylish house bathroom with a walk-in rainfall shower and freestanding bath, the perfect place to soak away countryside strolls.
The second bedroom offers bold statement pieces with a botanical feel, and doors leading out to the rear garden. The super king size bed can be split into two twin beds if preferred. Walk through to the stylish large en-suite bathroom, with walk-in shower and separate bath.
Availability: Gayles Hall Barns is often booked as a whole, combining Sheep Dip & Shearing Shed together to make a large seven bedroom property.
Step outside to enjoy your own private outdoor area, primarily at the back of this stunning cottage. Here you will find a barbecue and seating on the terrace for al fresco dining. Walk straight out from the master bedroom and enjoy your morning coffee on the terrace before a long soak in the private jacuzzi-style hot tub. For the most fantastic views, climb up the path to the top of the garden and look out over the house to the valley beyond and as far as the eye can see.
There is free wi-fi throughout and private parking on the gravel driveway outside. The modern kitchen has a full inventory for that home from home experience, including fridge, freezer, wine cooler and dishwasher. There are washing facilities in the boot room, Smart TVs and a bluetooth sound system.
