Perfectly located between the Yorkshire Moors and Dales close to both Richmond and Durham, Hollymoor House is a stunning architecturally designed barn conversion set in 7 acres with a peaceful outlook over a private lake and extensive lawns. Rebuilt over the last 5 years by owners Andrew and Caroline, the house boasts 4 tastefully appointed ensuite bedrooms along with a stunning designer kitchen.
Andrew and Caroline have worked in hospitality for over 20 years and their attention to detail and hospitable personalities make them the perfect hosts. With over 20 years experience as a professional chef working with some of the best Restaurant and Banqueting chefs in both the North and South of England, Caroline shows an unending enthusiasm for cooking and all things foodie. Guest staying at Hollymoor House can be assured of enjoying delicious meals inspired by Yorkshire heritage using a variety of wonderful local ingredients.
With its fantastic central location, Hollymoor House is close to a number of local attractions including Richmond Castle, Croft Circuit and The Bowes Museum. For guests who enjoy walking or cycling in the great outdoors, the vast and beautiful landscapes found in the Yorkshire Dales and Weardale National Parks, are both just a short drive away. There are also easy links to the A1 and mainline train station.
Rooms are available on a B&B basis but you can easily enhance your stay by adding afternoon tea on arrival, an evening meal or even a picnic! Bespoke stays for groups of up to 8 guests can be centred around food and exploring the diverse Yorkshire Countryside, with stays being tailored to individual needs.

Hollymoor House is the culmination of a vision Andrew and Caroline had to create a relaxing space in which to live. Being Andrew’s 5th and most accomplished build project, Hollymoor House has taken 5 years to complete. Now Andrew and Caroline have opened up their home to guests who share their passion for good food and wine, the beautiful Yorkshire Countryside and a gentler pace of life.
In addition to 4 ensuite bedrooms, Hollymoor House features a stunning vaulted dining and sitting room complete with a raised hearth and wood stove. Here, you can indulge yourself in canapés whilst enjoying a tipple from the fully licensed bar, followed by a delicious evening meal.
The designer kitchen has to be the real centrepiece of the property, a true ‘show-stopping, state of the art, no equipment spared’ area where Caroline creates her scrumptious meals. Guests with a keen interest in cooking can choose to enjoy an afternoon here with Caroline and explore your culinary skills in a relaxed and informal environment. Those needing to walk off the effects afterwards, can do so in the extensive lawns overlooking the lake, the perfect place to relax especially in the summer evenings.
