Br’er Rabbit Barn is a luxurious retreat set in the pretty village of Finghall, just 4 miles from the popular market town of Leyburn in the Yorkshire Dales. Jo, the owner, has a flare for interior design, from the monogrammed linens to the Emma Bridgewater crockery, everything has been carefully selected and brought together to create a magical escape set in rolling countryside.

The open plan living space has a comfy sofa, a log burner for chilly evenings and the kitchen is well appointed with everything you need for cooking up hearty breakfasts or tasty suppers. Wherever you are in the Barn you can enjoy wonderful views across the beautiful countryside!

With two bedrooms, stylishly furnished with comfort and luxury in mind, one with a super king bed and one king bed, adorned with soft, sumptuous linens and cloud like pillows, sleeping up to 4 guests in absolute comfort.

There is a private garden looking out across the paddock which is home to the friendliest Shetland ponies you could wish to meet while the wood fired hot tub beckons for a late night soak under the stars.

In the village there is a popular gastro pub serving good beer and great food, there are so many wonderful dining spots all around this beautiful area, or for a treat you can even book a private chef for the evening to come to the Barn and cook supper for you!

There is so much to explore in this spectacular part of Yorkshire including walking and cycling routes from the door and you can hop aboard Wensleydale steam train at the little village station for a sightseeing trip along the Dale.

Watching the sunset over the picturesque view from the hot tub was amazing!

The cottage was beautifully presented, cosy and a real home from home. A very quiet and restful holiday in beautiful surroundings.
