Danby 7 miles. A fabulous detached property, full of character and history! The Wheelhouse is the result of the imaginative conversion of an old wheelhouse and barn to form a stunning stone-built house near the owner's farmhouse on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. Great care has been taken to retain original features such as exposed timbers and the huge old beam which once powered the mill stone. The skeleton of the wheelhouse now forms part of the sitting-room, and is an interesting octagonal shape with windows to three sides to enjoy the views over open farmland to the sea beyond. Guests will love this warm and welcoming property!
