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.
This fantastic property, which originally formed the defensive entrance to the village rectory, is in an idyllic location tucked away in a charming North Yorkshire village. Set in a secluded position just opposite the local church, you can enjoy the peace and quiet of a country getaway without any distractions. Take tea for two at the local tearoom, or head to the local pub in Appleton Roebuck (2 miles) for a drink. However you decide to spend your time, this property is bursting with period character and will be waiting for you when you get home and want to put your feet up and relax.
Open the dramatic wooden doors and step into the fresh and bright kitchen which benefits from trendy counter and cabinet lighting paired with regal ceiling lights that make it a pleasure to cook in. Enjoy quick breakfasts at the breakfast bar in the morning so you can head straight out for the day, or head up to the dining area on the first floor where a stunning dining table awaits you for romantic meals. You can both sit at the head of the table, feeling like true kings or queens of days gone by. Gaze out of the beautiful latticed windows and daydream about all the adventures you’re going to have during your stay.
Take an invigorating shower in the downstairs shower room where elegant tiles and fittings remind you of the age of this property, despite having everything you could need for a contemporary stay. There’s even an exposed wooden beam in here, making your shower feel truly indulgent.
Climb the steep stairs up to the open-plan living area, where a stunning super-king-size four-poster bed stands proudly at the end of the room, beckoning you to snuggle under the covers and enjoy the perfect night’s sleep among rich blue tones and unique bed linen. If you can resist diving straight into bed, cosy up together on the sofa in the living area and watch something on TV, or curl up with a book and enjoy some downtime, surrounded by impressive vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams. Intricate details in the wood are still visible and add that extra bit of charm to your holiday.
Outside, a decked area to the side of the property is the ideal spot for an al fresco drink on a sunny evening, enclosed by a beautiful wall on either side and mature trees all around you. If you’ve brought your four-legged friend with you, take a stroll around the church grounds just 100 metres away before heading off around the country lanes in the village.
