About Ms Boo Orman
I have lived in Nun Monkton for over thirty years and had a Good Food Guide recommended restaurant in York . When I retired from the demands of restaurant life, I become involved in the wine trade and was a tutor for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust. My travels have taken me all over the world and there is still a lot more to see. I am a keen gardener; enjoy tennis and golf and walking in the North Yorkshire Moors and Dales with friends and my Norfolk terrier, Victor.
Ms Boo Orman purchased this barn in 1980
Why Ms Boo Orman chose Nun Monkton
Reasons for buying property in this location I arrived in Yorkshire 30 years ago by accident having sold a restaurant in Essex. I was staying with friends who suggested I looked at a cottage in Nun Monkton which was for sale. I fell in love with the place, bought it, opened and restaurant in York and kept a horse in the barn. When the restaurant was sold it was clear something drastic had to be done to stop the barn falling down. I took a gamble and embarked on a full scale conversion. The horse had to go, but I have had a lot of happy guests in his place since.
What makes this barn unique
Nun Monkton is the most glorious village and I count myself very lucky to live here. Apart from the charm of the place, with its maypole, duck ponds, a church boasting pre Raphaelite stained glass windows and a pub with fabulous food, we are just ten minutes from a York Park and Ride and have easy access to the North York’s Moors and The Dales. The grade 2 listed barn is carefully converted, warm and cosy with a log burning stove and great views over the village green and open country. I am on hand in case of emergencies but know too that privacy is important. Friends and family often stay in the barn and they are my fiercest critics. If it's good enough for my 85 year old mother ......
