A visit to the Barn at Holwick lets you experience the beautiful traditional exteriors that we have to offer with a modern, comfortable fully appointed interior.
The central feature of the Barn’s spacious lounge/diner is its cosy wood burning stove. Its solid pine floor and exposed stone wall give it both character and warmth. It also boasts three good sized sofas.
There is ample room for dining with a table and six chairs in the dining area and a further table and chairs in the breakfast area in the kitchen.
This is also where you will find a selection of books and maps, and of course the tv.
The well appointed kitchen has recently been enhanced by the addition of double French doors that have opened up views of the garden. The kitchen is filled with light from the early morning sunrises viewed from the side window, to the long aspect across the garden. Guests particularly enjoy watching the wide variety of birds that visit our bird feeders.
The kitchen is an ideal space for breakfast; light and airy with great views across the garden. Enjoy the long vistas across the drumlins to the distant hills and endless skylines beyond. It’s also equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. There is a tumble drier, automatic washing machine, electric cooker, fridge freezer. There is also a microwave and toaster, as well as an extensive range of cutlery and other kitchen utensils.
There’s plenty of sleeping space with each of the three bedrooms being double in size. There are twin beds in each so the property can comfortably sleep six people.
Two of the bedrooms are upstairs whilst the third is conveniently located on the ground floor.
Bathroom and Shower Room
The light and airy family bathroom is complimented by a separate shower room which has a walk in single shower, toilet and wash basin.
The lane that runs along the front of The Barn is very quiet; there is no through route for cars. The lane finishes at the Earl of Strathmore’s shooting lodge. However, for walkers the lane leads to lots of trails such as the Pennine Way, Low Force and High Force.
At the rear of the property is a large lawned garden which in January and February is covered with snowdrops. The sound of the small, shallow stream at the bottom of the garden as it trickles over the pebbles is very relaxing.
The log store is not only picturesque but also provides a service, not only for us and our visitors but also the local wildlife. Last year we felt very privileged when a song thrush laid 4 of her eggs within the stack of logs.
Next to the log store you will find the covered decking of the large shed provides an ideal space to while away the early evenings. Sun chairs are available.
There’s ample parking for up to 5 cars.
