The Hay Wain
This first floor, eco-friendly studio apartment has been purpose built and is set in the delightful village of Romaldkirk, on the outskirts of the Yorkshire Dales; the setting could not be more appealing! Built of English oak and fully insulated and weather proofed to a high standard, The Hay Wain will ensure a warm and comfortable stay. This studio apartment is ideal for couples requiring minimal facilities, looking for peace and quiet in a beautiful rural location. Park alongside the garage in a covered parking space and access the property up wooden steps which lead directly into the open plan living area, where the well thought out interior provides the basics for a peaceful retreat, after a long days walk or cycle. The design features of this property evidence an ultra-modern approach with an eye for detail. The solar electricity powers halogen lights, sensitive and responsive underfloor heating, an induction hob and a state-of-the-art shower. The innovative Quooker system heats water instantly to 100 degrees centigrade saving electricity and eliminating the need for a kettle. A must for enthusiastic environmentalists, the underfloor solar heating will warm those numb toes and the shower room will wash away any aches and pains. The comfortable king-size double day bed provides a restful nights sleep. During the day, collapse the bed and then it can be used as a sofa, whilst sustenance can be rustled up on either the single induction ring or in the microwave oven. Instant tea and coffee can be made from the Quooker hot water tap and there is a small table and stools for dining and planning the next days adventure. A short stroll will take you to the centre of the village with a pretty green. Why not call into the local pub for a pint and a gorgeous meal? A stay at this studio apartment will provide great walking and cycling opportunities, with many countryside paths providing the chance to enjoy much of the local wildlife. A short drive will take you to the popular, historic market town off Barnard Castle with a host of antique shops, tea rooms and independent shops, as well as a good golf course. Dont miss a visit to the waterfront at the foot of the castle, and The Bowes Museum. Alternatively travel upstream to High Force and Cauldron Snout, and further afield a visit to Raby Castle with its splendid grounds and deer park is a must. If you fancy a drive to Bishop Auckland, there is also the annual outdoor event Kynren in the grounds of Auckland Castle, which brings to life the history of England in this thrilling live action show. This is a great little base for couples wishing to discover Durham and the surrounding area, throughout the whole year.
