It’s always a pleasure meeting our Gorgeous Owners and being able to visit their wonderful holiday cottages across Yorkshire. Earlier this year I met up with Patti and Julian Hopwood, owners of Clock Farm House – a grand country house set on the outskirts of York.
Wow, what a property. If you’re going for grandeur, this is the place! It’s one of the most stylish large luxury Yorkshire cottages I’ve seen on my travels, but there are lots of other reasons why you will love Clock Farm House…
5 things to love about Clock Farm House York
1. Two is so much better than one!
Why have just one sitting room when you can have two! Clock Farm House is such a large cottage that it has the luxury of two sitting rooms, a huge benefit for families sharing the same holiday cottage. The kids will love the fact they can go off and play together whilst the adults can enjoy peace and quiet next door.
2. York is calling…
Although Clock Farm House has a private and peaceful position, you can be in central York in less than 15 minutes. So you really have the best of best worlds, a country house retreat and the stunning city of York at your finger-tips. It’s no secret that York is one of our favourite places in the world, with its impressive York Minster, ancient city walls and vibrant café culture.
3. Family time in the kitchen
The large family-size kitchen in Clock Farm House is the perfect place to get together with friends and loved ones. Picture a busy family breakfast, bacon crackling on the range and all of your favourite people in world gathered around the enormous farm-house table. Yes it is a little bit like the Waltons. Sounds nice doesn’t it.
4. A sense of space
Clock Farm House enjoys a luxurious sense of space throughout. With 5 generous bedrooms and ample space throughout the house to escape to, there’s always the chance for some quiet time. Even for larger luxury cottages in Yorkshire this isn’t often the case, but can be important for family-friendly cottages where there are several generations enjoying the same holiday.
5. Quality assured
One thing which struck me immediately with Clock Farm House was the quality of the interior. Style and substance in every room with gorgeous furnishings, sumptuous bedding, luxury hotel-quality bathrooms. Julian and Patti haven’t compromised at all on the interior of this large luxury cottage and this attention to detail makes all the difference…
I could go on, I love the large lawned garden with uninterrupted views of the Yorkshire landscape, the divine patio area where you can watch the sunset over dinner in the summer months, the fabulous collection of bathrooms, the conservatory to the front of the house where you can sit and watch the children play outside… So much to love about this large cottage in Yorkshire.
