About Mrs Cyntra Hinde
Marcus and Cyntra Hinde. We have lived here for 8 years. We have two children at university, two cocker spaniels and an array of sheep and chickens and two Alpacas who are mother and son.
Mrs Cyntra Hinde purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Mrs Cyntra Hinde chose Sutton-on-the-Forest
We love the privacy and feeling of space we get around here and, whilst being rural, we are right on the edge of the village with the good village pub a short stroll away and easy access into York by bus or car. We developed the barn in 2016/17 and it is located behind the main farm house. It is not overlooked in any way and looks over two paddocks containing all our rescue animals. The 7 acre wood was planted 15 years ago and is a great place to stroll in the morning or evening. You may even see one of the three deer, or a badger or owls that seem to like staying at night. You may also see buzzards in action.
What makes this Cottage unique
The luxury of a new barn conversion in a rural setting, with the benefits of loads of space to view the wildlife and the birds. Launde Barn is very peaceful without feeling or being totally cut off.

Outstanding barn conversion
This property is in a great location, really quiet and peaceful but with good access to the village and surrounding area. The barn itself has been beautifully restored and the owners could not have been more helpful. All in all, a great choice.
Beautiful converted barn near York
The barn at Launde Farm is clean, spacious and brilliantly located for York and north East Yorkshire. The barn is dog friendly and the woods and garden were ideal for our dog along with local walks around the village. There is so much to do in the local area. Castle Howard is nearby and York is a short drive or bus journey from the village. There are plenty of good local pubs including one in the village.
Than you so much for your review and we are so happy you enjoyed the Barn and all it’s surroundings. It was really nice to meet you and your lovely dog .
A great get away in an amazing place and grounds and property are suitable for all ages and dogs
We arrived slightly earlier than anticipated but Cyntra welcomed us and made us feel very at ease. The barn is amazing and very clean and well presented. The grounds are also great and plenty to explore. From the forest with pond to the orchard with an abundance of fruit trees. The Alpaca's Alice and BeeBee were a huge success with my youngest daughter who has now decided we should have some Alpacas !! There was a welcome card and cake from Marcus and Cyntra. We would recommend staying here and would return. A great place and location for exploring York and surrounding area. Lovely friendly Pubs in village and nearby villages. Excellent for Park and Ride into York. Thank you for a great holiday.
Great week celebrating a graduation and a birthday. The barn is lovely and had everything we needed, and the outside space and animals were a bonus. Cyntra made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed both the time spent at the barn and also exploring the local area.
Really friendly owners, the barn is perfect
Great pub near by (Rose and crown) the owners were really sweet & also a gin distillery was very near by.
Fantastic, luxurious, relaxing stay near York
As a group of 8 ladies celebrating 50th birthdays we couldn’t have chosen a better accommodation. Referred to as a new luxury barn conversion near York was exactly right, everything about it said luxury from the bedding to the towels to the amazing meal provided for us by Cyntra on the first night to the advice on hiring a hot tub and even where to go for a fun filled and informative hour walking with Alpacas Cyntra had it covered to the highest of standards. We walked in the woods, played pool, enjoyed Prosecco on the lawn and relaxed in the hot tub. Both Cyntra and Markus couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating and with on site dogs, goats, sheep and alpacas it was the most idyllic spot. A taxi to York cost around £25 for 4 sharing or £44 for us in an 8 seater minibus. I can’t recommend this accommodation highly enough, we are already checking to see when we can visit again. Thank you for helping us make such wonderful memories x
The village of Sutton on the Forest is charming, with a popular pub, The Rose and Crown, just 5 minutes walk away, a Georgian stately home, Sutton Park, a beautiful 19 century church, an Italian restaurant, a newly opened whiskey/gin distillery and a large recreation ground with play areas, boules, football pitch and table tennis table.
The village has easy access by bus into York (for attractions such as the famous York Minster, National Railway Museum, the Yorvik Viking Centre, the Yorkshire Chocolate Story, the City Walls and Racecourse) or the nearby Georgian town of Easingwold.
The barn is ideally situated for access to the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors and other attractions such as Castle Howard, Eden Camp, the Yorkshire Air Museum, Ampleforth Abbey and School and the seaside towns of Scarborough and Whitby. Village shops, both community owned, are located in the nearby villages of Huby and Stillington.
