Converted Barn and Hayloft in Harrogate, Yorkshire, England - Rural Idyll, Yet Close To The Victorian Spa Town Of Harrogate
The Barn & Hayloft (****Tourist Board rating) are part of a lovely Georgian farmstead set in lush arable countryside. Situated just one mile from the picture postcard village of Bishop Monkton which boasts a babbling brook housing ducks and their baby ducklings and 2 country Inns. There are 15 acres of paddocks and fields to enjoy as well as a large wildlife pond with Indian runner ducks and moorhens as well as sometimes a heron. Yet not far from this haven of calm, are the beautiful and sophisticated town of Harrogate and the medieval cathedral city of Ripon. Bike rides are popular and the farm is on a designated bike route. There are rabbits and wild deer to see as well as pet donkeys and hens. Something for everyone young and old.
