It has been our life's passion to rebuild this wonderful coaching house into the most amazing country home imaginable! Far too magnificent to keep to ourselves,we invite you to come and enjoy it too! The apartment sleeps 4 people in 1 double and 1 twin room and is a wonderful space in the most beautiful countryside!
It's a fabulous space - fresh, light, airy, modern, stimulating and ingenious with some extraordinary touches: Japanese style screens around the raised double bed, metal and perspex stairs leading to a cosy twin roof room - high tech meeting old timbers. Marvellous chunky beams, wide planked floors, original art on subtle walls.
The apartment has most modcons, including TV/DVD, CD/radio, games, books, iron+board etc. There is a very well equipped kitchen with gas cooker/oven/grill, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster etc. and a dining table for 6 people.
Guests are welcome to use the sundeck (shared with owners and wildlife) overlooking the old mill pond, as well as a stone-flagged dining patio. Bring your fishing rod and try your luck with the Carp, Bream, Chubb and Perch in the millpond.
We are serious old car nuts - especially Citroens and Dan always welcomes anyone who is interested in old cars (he has a very large garage which people often disappear in to for hours!) We can sometimes even provide inside parking for that extra special old car.
Общение с гостями
We are generally on hand to answer any queries that you may have and if you don't feel like cooking....Hilly absolutely loves to - so excellent evening meals and packed lunches are normally available with just a little notice!
Many guests have become good friends and come back time and time again.
Другие важные подробности
It is a loft apartment so up two flights of stairs!
Sorry - no smoking in any part of the building in line with most places now and, I am afraid that the apartment is not suitable for pets.
I am an artist/photographer/designer/cook and mother living in this beautiful part of Yorkshire. I make work using a variety of media – lens, print, paint, ink, charcoal and even food . . . depending on circumstance, brief or mood!
I absolutely love to cook good food for my friends and spend the evenings eating, drinking and discovering what makes the world go around , but most importantly..... I am a compulsive collector of earrings!
Originally from London, I married a Yorkshireman in 1994, moved up North, and found myself in a whole new world - new friends - new landscape - new influences - new ideas, and then..... two children! My creative energies suddenly became channeled into homemaking - designing and restoring a huge derelict barn as well as working and bringing up a family! What a joy - what a leveller - what an influence!
Oats Royd Barn, now a creative 'hotbed' for friends and family, has become the perfect place for artistic pursuits of all descriptions whether it be art workshops, musical evenings or gastronomic extravaganzas! It is such a huge and special place it just has to be shared!
My husband, Dan works from the barn as a graphic designer and our two teenagers, Annie and Tom, are just fabulous!
The barn is also home to a small collection of old cars (mostly citroens) the pride and joy at the moment being a 1968 Citroen DS.
