This unique escape will provide a break to remember with its original character, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and impressive doorways situated in a sleepy village surrounded by countryside.
The property originally formed the defensive entrance to the village rectory and a courtyard of medieval buildings, the rectory and outbuildings were rebuilt in 1698 and then demolished in the 19th century, but the gatehouse escaped intact. In the village there is a pub and Post Office. The village benefits from its proximity to the A64 and A1/M1 link, offering easy access to Leeds. Nearby Tadcaster has extensive local facilities and the historic city of York is just eight miles away and offers many art galleries and museums to explore, along with racing at York Racecourse. Selby Abbey, Byland Abbey, Castle Howard, Harewood House, Bolton Castle, Hovingham Hall, Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal in Ripon are fantastic historical houses and gardens which are well worth a visit.
