This attractive house is set in the Vale of York, at the base of the Yorkshire Wolds. It is an ideal central base from which to discover and explore the many attractions that Yorkshire has to offer, including, the North York Moors, with its glorious purple heather and steam railway and the East Yorkshire coast with miles of pristine sandy beaches and the coastal towns of Whitby, Scarborough and Bridlington. Spend the day in the historic walled city of York with its endless array of attractions, including the Jorvik Centre and the imposing minster, or for a more cosmopolitan experience, visit the city of Leeds with its outstanding Victoria Quarter which boasts Harvey Nichols.
