Rural living is on offer at this converted barn in the Yorkshire Dales

Windswept views of the Yorkshire Dales and Peak District mountains are on offer at Wildman’s Barn, an idyllic retreat that has turned a 300-year old ruin into a modern country home.

Sitting on the southerly edge of the Yorkshire Dales, on a private three-and-a-half-acre plot, Wildman’s comprises two historic stone barns that have undergone a top-to-toe transformation by their owner. They’ve combined and shored up the old buildings to create a 2,540 sq ft home, surrounded by paddocks, meadow and kitchen gardens.

Large picture windows puncture the barn’s historic gritstone facade, and skylights have been added on the simple slate roof to amplify light inside the five-bedroom country property. Structural beams are exposed in the soaring double-height living room to showcase the handsome skeleton of the space, while floor-to-ceiling glass brings views of the dales indoors.

Wildman’s Barn is for sale with The Modern House for £800,000, and interiors are refined and minimalist, with a soft edge. Think modern country living with white-washed walls and warm woods throughout.
