Black Bull Barn


The Property

Black Bull Barn is the ideal base from which to explore the historic city of York, the North York Moors National Park, the Yorkshire Dales and the fabulous East coast.

It provides luxury accommodation for two and perfect for those wanting a romantic break. It sits to the rear of (and adjoining) the owner’s house, a grade II, 16th century former pub and that sits in the center of the village, overlooking the village green and church. Access to the barn is from the driveway at the side of the house.

Husthwaite is close to the Georgian market town of Easingwold is ten minutes away has a great range of independent shops, cafes and pubs. York is half an hour’s drive or take the bus from the village or the train from Thirsk.

There are numerous local footpaths for those who enjoy walking and some excellent pubs nearby serving fabulous food. Husthwaite also has a recreation area with a tennis court and adult outdoor gym.

If you’re eating out the Michelin starred Black Swan at Oldstead is close by and The Carlton Inn, Carlton Husthwaite and The Stayplton Arms in Wass are both excellent.

With its oak floor and rugs, the sitting room is the perfect place to relax and you will find dvds, books and games as well as maps and local information.
