It feels like you are staying in the grounds of a national trust property.
The gardens and orchard are lovely.
Surrounded by horses it is an idylic spot, with a massive field to lose yourself in privacy if you require.
A lovely welcome and always available for a chat, the owners were non intrusive, but available.
A heated outdoor pool, grass court tennis, badminton, croquet our kids loved it.
For history buffs, the old chapel and the story of the house is very interesting.
20 minutes from York and 10 minutes from the A1.
But promise me you wont tell everyone!
