Gorgeous 4 bedroom luxury holiday Barn Cottage

Welcome to Acorn Barn Laytham, a gorgeous 4-bedroom luxury holiday home just 20 minutes from central York. Perfect for families with its spacious contemporary interiors and bags of outdoor space, this stunning property offers you the best of both worlds – rolling green Yorkshire countryside and village living with all the delights of cosmopolitan York within easy reach.

Subject to a recent and outstanding renovation, this handsome red brick farmhouse has been completely transformed into a large and luxurious family holiday home. No expense has been spared with the refurbishment, something which is evident from the moment you walk through the door.

The house has a quirky appealing layout with 2 staircases leading up from both sides of the house to upstairs. Downstairs you’ll find a stunning large living room complete with original flagstone floors, elegant sofas and a cosy wood burner set under an enormous Inglenook fireplace. There’s a TV in here with a full SKY package (Cinema, Sports etc) if you fancy catching a family movie and Wi-Fi access is provided throughout the house.

The family kitchen is a beautiful spacious room with high ceilings, oak flooring, solid walnut worktops, a SMART TV and a warm Rangemaster oven at its heart. There’s also a kitchen island with eye-catching tractor-seat bar stools, the perfect place to perch with a glass of bubbly before dinner. The elegant cashmere coloured units are well stocked with glassware and crockery along with all the kitchen equipment you need to rustle up a hearty family meal.

Opposite the kitchen you’ll find the generous dining room, a tranquil room boasting period wood panelling painted in contemporary grey. A farmhouse table sits in the middle, ready and waiting for those rowdy family breakfasts or candlelit evening meals.

Downstairs is also home to a handy family shower room featuring a large walk-in shower and WC.

All of the bedrooms in Acorn Barn have their own personality and are set upstairs accessed via 2 staircases. All of the beds are dressed in the finest cotton bed linen and have mattress toppers included for extra comfort. Bedrooms 1 and 2 are set at the front of the house and are found up the stairs from the entrance hall. The first bedroom has a lovely king size bed and access to private WC facilities. The second bedroom comes complete with a double bed and an en-suite shower room.

Bedrooms 3 and 4 can be found from the stairs leading up from the living room. Bedroom 3 is a very charming twin room with cast iron single beds and a wow-factor free-standing bath. The 4th and final bedroom has another double bed and again en-suite WC facilities. So plenty of bathroom and toilet facilities for everyone…

Outside you’ll find a pretty gravelled courtyard to the rear, a nice sheltered spot for lunch al fresco, and to the front a large lawned area just perfect for kids to run around on. There is lockable storage for bikes if required and plenty of off road parking for cars.

This property requires payment of a security deposit.

Acorn Barn is set in the hamlet of Laytham, a sleepy little place less around 20 minutes from Central York. You have the best of both worlds here, the delightful small village atmosphere of old Yorkshire twinned with the vibrant city of York. You can drive into the city easily from here, or choose to hop on the train at nearby Howden Station just 10 minutes away. There are several local pubs within easy reach including and the busy market town of Pocklington is just 10 minutes’ drive – you’ll find lots of pubs, cafes and restaurants to explore here. There’s also a Golf Club & Spa within 10 minutes drive.


Don’t forget the dog as Acorn Barn Laytham allows up to two well-behaved dogs.
