Our recently converted barn has been lovingly refurbished to a high standard, to create the perfect base for a relaxing holiday. The grade II listing means that we have retained all character features, such as beams and troughs, yet we have incorporated all of the necessary elements to make this an extremely comfortable and fully equipped self catering holiday base. We have a bathroom with WC, full size bath with overhead shower and basin, a well-equipped and appointed kitchen area, which includes an electric hob and fan oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer and washer/dryer. It is in excellent decorative order and the high quality appliances are complemented by the quartz work surfaces. The kitchen and dining area is open plan into the comfortable lounge, with new sofa bed (opening to a double bed, suitable for two children), two additional chairs, and a dining table (seats 4+). For your entertainment we have a 42" LCD TV, Freeview box, DVD Player (range of DVDs provided, more children's DVDs available), iPod docking station, free WiFi. The property is set within the grounds of our family home (though is set back out of sight), and the patio area is furnished with table and chairs for outdoor dining and faces onto our large, child friendly, sunny (SE facing), lawned gardens. The location of our unique barn conversion is one of its greatest assets. The historic village of Tockwith has excellent road links 10 minutes from the A1 and next to the historic Marston Moor battlefield site. The property is located to give easy access to York (7 miles), Wetherby (6 miles) and Harrogate (11 miles) and the multitude of attractions that they offer. These include the Yorkshire Dales-Moors-Coast, Castle Howard, Beningbrough Hall, Harewood House, Newby Hall, and of course the City of York, including the National Railway Museum, Yorvik, York Minster, The historic York City Walls, York Racecourse, the theatres, boat trips, and many other attractions. Additionally, Leeds Armouries, RHS - Harlow Carr Gardens in Harrogate are all within an easy drive.
The holiday property has a designated off street parking space, though we enjoy excellent public transport links - including a regular bus service from right outside and trains direct to York, Knaresborough and Harrogate, from Cattal station which is just two miles away.
