Expertly renovated, this former piggery is anything but a pigsty. The interiors are bright, contemporary and poised. A trendy white and grey colour scheme is beautifully livened up with botanical flourishes and earthy green tones, particularly in the bedroom. Take advantage of balmy afternoons with a late lunch on your private courtyard – accompany your spread with local produce from the farm shop just around the corner. After a strong cup of tea and a hunk of sticky parkin, strap on your walking shoes and explore the endless bridleways and trails of the Howardian Hills that surround your home. If you’re keen to explore further afield, an hour’s drive places you at the coast – take your pick between sunny Scarborough and quirky Whitby. When it’s time to call it a day, just before you arrive home to your comfortable king-size bed, make a pit stop in nearby Malton for hearty northern grub – it’s not called Yorkshire’s Food Capital for nothing.
