Outside, the farm’s former foldyard has been professionally landscaped to create a tranquil garden and courtyard area with parking area for 8+ cars. There is a large 8-person hot tub, two deck chairs, a dining table with a BBQ, and two large sofas with additional benches and coffee tables. The foldyard was renovated to ensure the area is privately tucked behind a tall brick wall with electric gates to enter.
The main living area is a 70m2 day room and dining kitchen with a wood burner and double doors onto the 350m2 facing courtyard garden. The farmhouse kitchen dining room is fully equipped, with a large breakfast bar seating 12 and an extendable solid wood dining table which seats 16. There are also two large sofas facing the panoramic views and wide screen TV.

Window Views Description
The barn is situated on a working farm surrounded by mature woodland and is a haven for wildlife including bats, buzzards, red kites, hares and hedgehogs. There are two 150 year old dew ponds to the front and rear which are home to frogs and recently newts. With the support of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, we are currently undergoing renovation of the ponds in hope of encouraging further wildlife to make them their home.
In the summer months you will see some Hereford cows and Southdown sheep grazing on the paddocks surrounding the farm. In the spring there will be some lambs at the farm, and calves may be around at any time. All year round the farm is a working farm, so their may be some tractors and machinery moving through the yard.
