REDUNDANT barns in Sneaton are to be converted to a holiday cottage and a house for local occupancy.

Approval was given by the North York Moors National Park planning committee to an application by Tim Lawn of Hollybush Farm, Littlebeck for the conversions at Buskey House Farm in Ugglebarnby Lane, Sneaton.

Three buildings were involved comprising a single storey traditional stone and pantile barn attached to the farmhouse and a detached brick and stone barn.

The main farmhouse is partly stone faced and partly rendered with white uPVC windows and a pantile roof.

Planning permission was granted to construct a two storey rear gabled extension to the farmhouse to provide improved kitchen facilities and a fifth bedroom and shower room on the first floor.

Planning permission was also granted to convert the single storey stone barn to a holiday cottage comprising a kitchen-living area, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Car parking was available on a hard standing area behind the buildings.

The detached brick and stone barn is to be converted into a local occupancy house with a kitchen, dining, utility and living room on the ground floor and three bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor.
