At the heart of this luxury holiday home is the large social kitchen, combining rustic features such as the vaulted beamed ceilings, hand crafted cabinets, and an Aga, with all the state-of-the-art appliances and modern home comforts needed to cook up a storm. Seating is around the feature kitchen island, and we highly recommend booking The Barn’s chef Bea who will prepare your very own Thai feast.
Adjoining is the stylish snug, made cosy with a roaring log burner and a large sumptuous velvet sofa. With soft cushions and throws to snuggle into, sip wine by the fire or enjoy a game of monopoly or a good book. The large wall-mounted television features Sky, with a full package including movies and Sky Sports. Above the snug is a mezzanine bedroom accessed via a ladder, giving an additional hideaway perfect for two teens looking for their own space.
Through to the hallway, think industrial, design-led interiors with exposed stonework and antiques including a vintage motorcycle. This leads to the bedrooms, each of which are chic with a cosy twist. There is also a spacious boot room with sink; it’s also perfect for the dogs, and is somewhere to clean muddy paws after a dog-friendly day out in the Yorkshire Dales.
When the warmer months roll around, fling open the doors onto the enticing private outdoor space with a fire pit, alfresco dining, and a bubbling hot tub. Guests love to soak up the stunning views of the ever-changing scenery outdoors while listening to great music on the indoor/outdoor Bose surround sound system. The large glass doors between rooms inside the house offer plenty of light throughout the year. This is a truly idyllic family-friendly holiday home in Yorkshire.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as an additional hideaway mezzanine for two.
On the ground floor are two spacious bedrooms each with their own unique style. One has a large leather Super king-sized bed, the second bedroom has a king-sized bed, and they share the most stunning family bathroom. A deep free-standing copper bathtub sits on the rustic mosaic tiles, ideal for soaking muscles after long walks in the country. There’s a separate large walk-in shower.
Upstairs is the master suite, balancing contemporary and idyllic, romantic and bright. Think natural hues, tassel throws, eye-catching artwork, and the most fantastic walk-in wardrobe. The large en-suite includes a decadent free-standing copper bathtub and a separate walk-in shower. Early nights in the Egyptian linen on this super king-sized bed are essential. Or, curl up in the ultra-comfy hammock-style hanging chair on the private balcony overlooking the courtyard.
The mezzanine bedroom sleeps two in twin beds, hidden above the snug. Throw open the windows and look out through the large telescope and enjoy views across rolling fields beyond. Accessed via a ladder, this room is fun for teenagers or friends sharing; we don’t recommend it for young children or guests with limited mobility due to the access and the fact it is not enclosed.
Lap up the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside as you light up the fire pit in the evening, or watch the endless sunsets and spot stars under the moonlit sky. There is a large outdoor table for alfresco dining, as well as a gas barbecue. The log-burning hot tub in the private courtyard outdoors is great fun at any time of day.
From avid walkers to those wanting a casual stroll, guests are welcome to explore the extensive grounds. There’s a choice of different length walks on offer through the farmland, woodlands and along the riverbanks.
Next door to The Barn, you will find the Workshop where you can pick up a pizza and drinks, this is a newly converted space shared among the four luxury hideaways at Pinkney Carr Farm.

Enjoy a game of pool with the kids, table tennis, or bring your pizzas back to The Barn for some private alfresco dining at your luxury abode.
Enquire about the personalised picnic package to take out for the day in your very own vintage car which is available to rent. The Workshop also features a fantastic yoga space with classes, and yoga retreats are on offer each month throughout the year.
