Think high-end boutique hotel, yet it is your own private and peaceful holiday home. Next Door, at the Old Forge York, is a super stylish barn conversion with interior design that will leave you in awe. Perfectly designed for families or two couples, this luxury accommodation is the perfect setting to sit back and let the stresses melt away. With everything from homemade meals from the honesty shop, tourist guides and even a children’s play area, you won’t need to worry about anything!
Next Door really is a luxury escape from the everyday and the most perfect self catering accommodation. And what’s more if you are looking to holiday with family or friends, you can book The Garden Shed that can sleep an additional two. The open plan living space in Next Door can comfortably accommodate 8 people, meaning you can all be social together. Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, there is an abundance of places within easy reach to explore. Then head back to a homemade meal, and cosy up on the velvet sofa amidst the warmth of the log burner. Bliss.
Next Door is a spacious two bedroom and two bathroom luxury barn conversion. Renovated to an exceptionally high standard with everything provided for you. From luxury linens to organic toiletries. For added indulgence a simple breakfast hamper and tea time treat will be waiting for you upon your arrival.
Internally Next Door features an opulent open plan living, kitchen and dining space. Featuring underfloor heating, plush velvet sofas, divine soft furnishings and a cosy log burner. You can wake up every morning to the sound of bird song, enabled by the feature patio doors in both bedrooms. Opening onto a private walled courtyard, it’s the perfect spot for a morning cup of tea in your pyjamas!
From both the living space and bedrooms you can access the completely private walled courtyard. Provided with comfy sofas and chairs, this peaceful outdoor space is divine for al fresco socialising. And with it being completely enclosed you won’t need to worry about being disturbed nor your four legged friend running wild!
Beyond the courtyard, guests have access to 1.5 acres of mature gardens. Soothe your senses and breathe in the fresh air and nature sounds with a relaxing wander around the beautiful grounds. Toast marshmallows around the fire pit and let the children burn off their energy on the play area, or have fun building a den. And make sure you spare an apple to feed the ‘Barbaras’, their on-site hens.
You could easily spend all day playing outside with the rope swings, climbing frame, trampoline and secret paths. Then perhaps stop for a picnic under the willow tree. But if you did crave an adventure, there are a plethora of places ripe to explore.
The host, Karen, of Next Door has conveniently made a ‘25 mile map’ to share with you the best local producers and places to visit ‘off the beaten track’.
The historical city of York is only 8 miles away and you don’t even need a car to get there. You can take the village bus, a cycle or use the park and ride for easy travel. With top attractions such as York Dungeons, The National Railway Museum, river boat cruises or maybe a walk around the city walls, there is plenty for a great day out.
For foodie lovers head to Malton, the food capital of Yorkshire! It hosts regular festivals and markets, and houses an abundance of independent food producers.
For something a little less man made, the beaches of Bridlington and Fraisethorpe are under an hour’s drive. Or venture into the Yorkshire Dales or The Moors for some rambling and breath taking scenery.
