About Bailey's Barn

Bailey's Barn is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near Oulston, surrounded by stunning countryside with breathtaking views. It is one of two spacious holiday cottages on the family-run Burton House Farm, sleeping four guests in two ensuite bedrooms with a layout that suits couples as well as families and friends. The owners have done a fantastic job of converting the formerly rustic barn into a fresh, modern holiday cottage, retaining original beams and handbuilt stone walls that make it feel warm and welcoming.

Oulston is the perfect choice for a holiday. It doesn't matter if you're into historic houses, you love spending as much time as possible outside being active, or your dream day involves tasting as much of the local food and drink as you can, you will find something to suit you in every season. Oulston is a quiet village between Thirsk and Malton. As it is part of a conservation area, little has changed over the decades, and it feels wonderfully traditional and unspoiled. The long-distance Foss Walk footpath passes through the village on its way between Easingwold and York. If you follow it to nearby Crayke, then you'll enjoy some of the best views of the Kilburn White Horse and the Howardian Hills. The North York Moors National Park is only a few miles from the cottage, providing even more opportunities to walk, mountain bike, cycle, climb, cave, and go horse riding.

Stock up on food and drink for your self-catering stay in Malton. The lively market town is known as a foodie's paradise with its choice of delis, butchers, bakers and restaurants all selling local produce, as well as a thriving farmers market on the second Saturday of every month. Alternatively, you could shop in Helmsley, Easingwold or Thirsk, all of which are within a 20-minute drive.

Local attractions include the magnificent Castle Howard, the Scampston Walled Garden, Flamingo Land, and the Eden Camp Modern History Museum. Thirsk is best known for James Herriott, the famous vet and author of "All Creatures Great and Small". Herriott's home and surgery are now an award-winning museum dedicated to the life and works of a man who had a passion for this area's landscape, people and animals. The ancient city of York is only half an hour from Bailey's Barn, with a huge choice of places to eat, drink and shops, and attractions that include York Minster, the Jorvik Viking Centre, medieval streets and city walls that date back to Roman times.

Depending on availability, Bailey's Barn can be booked with Rosie's Cottage to accommodate eight friends or extended family members. Please see the owner's website for details.
