Enjoy a magical experience at Kipling House Barn

Luxury large group self-catering barn in the heart of East Yorkshire

Situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds with commanding views over rolling farmland, Kipling House Barn is a 200 year old granary with vaulted ceilings and original oak beams that we have converted to create a luxury self-catering accommodation for large groups of 8 - 19 people. The bedrooms are split over two levels and the floor to ceiling windows in the living areas provide panoramic views over East Yorkshire.

of discounts for smaller groups of 12 or less people.

Our Accommodation

Kipling House Barn is situated between the Yorkshire Wolds villages of Shiptonthorpe and Middleton-on-the-Wolds and is perfectly placed to explore East and North Yorkshire’s cities, countryside and coastlines. The Yorkshire Wolds are fast becoming a popular tourist destination and the Barn is the perfect base for family holidays, wedding guests, celebration groups and sportsmen and women enjoying local outdoor pursuits.

"Dear Guests,

We look forward to welcoming you to Kipling House Barn. Please relax and enjoy the recently restored luxury accomodation and the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds."
