About sue holman
I am Sue Holman Married with 3 children who all still live and work at home in our family business which is based on the farm. They have all enjoyed growing up in this area and made many friends. As the family are now growing up we decided to convert our unused farm buildings and are completed to a standard that we would be happy to stay at.
sue holman purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why sue holman chose York
We were close to this area and knew it quite well. It is in lovely quiet countryside but close to many main attractions and cities. The local area is a great place to fetch up a family

Very enjoyable stay
Photo's and description are very accurate, had a lovely 3 night stay here with family. Some lovely town's and village's within easy reach of the property.
Beautifully laid out, well furnished and well equipped holiday cottage. Farm is a working arable farm but with Alpacas, pigs and chickens to add a bit of interest. Location is ideal, midway between Allerthorpe and Melbourne and adjacent to the Pocklington Canal which is beautifully idyllic.
Lovely barn conversion
Would definitely stop again.
Sue was really lovely to talk to.
Lovely holiday cottage. Perfect for our stay
The holiday cottage was perfect for our stay. Sue was very helpful with all that we needed. Nice little touches left in the cottage such as cake, tea and coffee and fresh orange juice. The cottage was very clean and cosy. We took our children who enjoyed having a look around the farm buildings and animals. Great weekend away would highly recommend staying here.
