You can also access the nearby village of Ripley and the city of York with ease.

  • The space

    Set over three floors, the farmhouse has been renovated to the highest standard with modern interiors and hints of rustic chic throughout.

    The front door leads to a large utility room, complete with underfloor heating (the perfect place for your pooch to snooze) and enough space to store your coats and boots after a day of exploring. There is also a washing machine, fridge, electric oven and a walk-in shower. Head up the back staircase and into the games room where there are hours of fun to be had. You will have access to a full-size snooker table, 52” TV, games console, dartboard and ample seating space.

    Continue into the large farmhouse kitchen, where you will find a range oven, an under-counter fridge, a microwave, a dishwasher and underfloor heating. Enjoy delicious home-cooked breakfasts around the 10-seater dining table, open the patio doors to admire the exceptional views or relax on the cosy chairs with a good book.

    For a more formal affair, the dining room is the perfect place to lay out a delicious banquet to enjoy together. The 10-seater table, drinks cabinet and serving sideboard make for the perfect place to socialise, celebrate and entertain.

    Next door is the cosy living room, designed with a neutral colour palette and complete with a large wood-burning stove, three sofas and two comfy chairs. Relax here with a glass of champagne in-hand as you natter until nightfall or enjoy a movie marathon on the Smart TV.

    Venture into the inner hall where you will find the grand, double-height staircase leading to four of the five bedrooms. All beautifully decorated with soft cotton sheets, clean and refreshing décor and exceptional countryside views. There are two king-size bedrooms, one with an en-suite featuring a shower over the bath. The third bedroom has a zip and link bed, which can be formed into a king-size double if required, whilst the fourth bedroom has a double bed. There is also a house bathroom with a walk-in shower and a bath.

    Take the stairs to the second floor, where you will find the fifth bedroom featuring a comfortable double bed and a bathroom with a shower over the bath. For some well-deserved quiet time, slip away to your own cosy snug, finished with a Smart TV and a two-seater sofa.

    The private garden is a wonderful place to spend quality time together. With extensive lawns to all sides, secure gates to create a safe space for children and dogs, a hot tub, a fire pit and a children's play area, there is no shortage of entertainment here. Relax on the rattan sofas with a G&T in hand and gather around the warming fire pit under a blanket of stars.
