The Hay Barn, North Yorkshire

sssdsdWe’re suckers for beautiful barns and the hideaways of Dovecote Barns are super luxe, boasting fancy features and five-star charm. You’ll find them near York in the little rural village of Kelfield, surrounded by lovely farmland and near the River Ouse for easy, breezy riverbank walks to and from the next village (go there for great real ale pubs).

With six en-suite bedrooms across three barns and group dining for up to 12 people, this fabulous cluster of barns are perfect for families, large groups and even weddings.

dsdssddThe Hay Barn is an eco stunner, boasting three en-suite, ground level bedrooms with six-foot super king size beds and walk-in wet rooms, each with French doors leading out to the property’s spacious patio area.

The galleried staircase leads to a sumptuous living area on the first floor, with a log fire stove, comfy leather sofas and views of the countryside and the barn’s landscaped gardens. Other highlights include oak truss frames for that oh-so cosy feeling, an open-plan kitchen with a fabulous oak dining table area for meals with up to 12 loved ones.
