The property

Pennyfarthings is a perfectly proportioned detached house near York which is just the ticket for family gatherings, groups of friends or just about anyone looking for a spacious home from home in the picturesque Vale of York.

Located in the small village of Claxton, less than four miles from the village of Stamford Bridge and only nine miles from the historic city of York, this lovely property has a spacious hall extending to the dining room, then on into two spacious sitting rooms designed for flexible living.

Whether you choose to cosy up in the garden room with its welcoming woodburning stove or retire to the sitting room after dinner, the choice is yours.

Also both sitting rooms open onto the delightful and private lawned garden with a sunny patio.

The four bedrooms with a choice of either king-size, double or twin beds provide plenty of options for guests, with one of these rooms having its own private balcony overlooking the garden and countryside beyond, a perfect place for that morning cup of tea.

Claxton is a superb base for exploring the many delights of the county.

York is within easy driving distance boasting many attractions, including the beautiful Minster, the Jorvik Viking Centre, city walls and Bettys tea rooms for a yummy afternoon tea.

Castle Howard, one of England's finest historic houses is less than eight miles away.

Set within the Howardian Hills, which is an Area of Outstanding Beauty, the house and grounds provide a spectacular day out.

Also in the area are the market town of Helmsley, the Carlisle Collection at the historic Nunnington Hall, and the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Filey.

A welcoming holiday home with plenty to see and do in the area.

About the location

STAMFORD BRIDGE

York 8.5 miles.

Stamford Bridge, as its name suggests, was a fording point over the River Derwent for a Roman settlement. Nowadays, it is a village with a selection of shops and restaurants and is notable for a renovated railway viaduct, which is now used as a cycle and public footpath. The village is well known as the site of the Battle of Stamford Bridge on 25th September 1066, which marked the end of the Viking era in Britain. Within easy reach are the pretty Yorkshire market towns of Malton, Beverley and Driffield and within an hour’s drive is the unspoilt coastal resort of Filey with open beaches and the nearby RSPB nature reserve at Bempton.
