Holiday at Home unveils latest luxury accommodation – The Farmhouse at Greenbank Barns

Holiday at Home has unveiled its latest luxury accommodation at Greenbank Barns – The Farmhouse, a stunning five-bedroom haven in the picturesque North Yorkshire Dales with a captivating combination of high-end splendour and personal touches.

The Farmhouse is the latest addition to the beautiful trio of exclusive holiday homes which make up Greenbank Barns in Ravensworth, near Richmond.

The latest launch comes after a hugely successful first two years for neighbouring Dexter and Shorthorn, which were launched in May 2015.

The five-star homes started life as cow barns until their owners - the Westgarth family -  decided to convert them into holiday accommodation, and the finished product couldn’t be further than their less-than-glamorous roots.

All three barns are all immaculately finished with every modern luxury amenity you could want – such as built-in wine coolers, leather sofas and high-end en-suite bedrooms.

Conveniently, the self-catering country retreat is located just five minutes’ drive from the A1 – but there’s no sign of this once you arrive, as the stunning location is a haven of tranquillity with lush green fields as far as the eye can see.

Inside, Greenbank Barns have everything you could need for your stay, meaning you won’t even need to leave the house – except, that is, to enjoy a dip in your own hot tub with a glass of fizz, or celebrate the British summer with a barbeque on the patio.

The Farmhouse has a range of versatile reception rooms which can be used to suit any group of people – from groups of friends, high-class hen parties or family gatherings and celebrations.

There’s a large kitchen-living area with a huge wooden table perfect for hosting dinners, a cozy living room snug with leather sofas and a huge stone fireplace, and even a games room complete with a pool table and bar. Every bedroom is finished to a high standard and has its own personality.

The barns are all dog-friendly with beds and bowls provided, and guests with four-leggeds who are eager to explore and get some fresh air can take a walk through the surrounding acres of private land.

For those keen to get out on two wheels, there are plenty of trails to explore nearby, before returning to the accommodation where you can store your bike in the large utility room. 

The success of Greenbank Barns is undoubtedly thanks not only to the beautiful locations and high-end finish, but also their perfect mix of luxury and home comforts.

The bedrooms boast glamorous chandeliers as part of the high-end interior design which wows throughout each barn. Guests have their own personal hot tub and Holiday at Home can arrange on-site yoga classes, personal trainers, the chance to be pampered by a beauty therapist, or even have a personal chef cook up a banquet for your party.

This splendor is then complimented with personal touches, which turn it into somewhere guests can make their own during their stay. There are fluffy dressing gowns and cosy wood burners, and every guest is greeted by a welcome hamper bursting with local goodies including tea, coffee, biscuits, bread and wine, and a guide to the surrounding area.

With four-bedroom Shorthorn sleeping eight people and both Dexter and The Farmhouse sleeping ten, these barns are the perfect location for groups looking for a special setting for a celebration in superb surroundings. They can be hired separately or even as a whole package to cater for up to 28 people.

The Farmhouse is also offering midweek guests the chance to soak up the HYGGE lifestyle during their stay with a complimentary hamper on arrival. HYGGE is a Danish culture which puts emphasis on comfort and contentment.

Holiday at Home has a portfolio of over 30 exclusive properties across seven sites in North Yorkshire. From one-bedroom The Penthouse, a romantic retreat for couples, to five-bedroom 30 Frenchgate in the heart of Richmond, to stunning rural havens like Holly House Farm in the Yorkshire Dales and award winning luxury lodges Brompton Lakes, Holiday at Home offers high-end holidaying for groups of people of any size in a variety of locations.
