York 12 miles.
North Duffield and Skipwith are pretty Yorkshire villages just 12 miles south of York. With a range of traditional red brick and modern houses, each village has a lovely village green and pond and a 'local' pub. Skipwith has a church, which dates back to the Anglo Saxon times, whilst North Duffield has a 19th Century Methodist church. This is a sleepy, relaxing area, ideal for getting away from all the stresses and strains of modern life. Locally, a 1000-acre nature reserve dominates the landscape, along with Skipwith Common, ideal for keen birdwatchers. Seven miles west is the market town of Selby with its beautiful abbey, and just a short drive to the north is the city of York; from the famous Minster to the medieval walls, the city is teeming with historical sites of interest. Explore York's quaint streets and hidden corners or take an excursion further afield - the Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Bridlington, Whitby and Filey are all within easy reach.

Previous visitors' comments about Lawns House Farm:
Very good house for extended family, plenty of space and secure garden. Tea, coffee, milk, sugar and lots of biscuits on arrival. When the washing line broke it was replaced the same day - can't beat that for service!
Mr Johnson, Coalville, March 2013
Enjoyed the size and comfort of the house for a group of friends with children. The utility room was a big benefit with lots of children. The heating was really good, we never felt cold. The washing machine was great for keeping the kids clothes clean. The parking space was great and the garden was large enough for all the children to play in. Overall a really enjoyable break away. The owners were very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Hutchinson, Scarborough, February 2013
An excellent property for a 3 generation holiday in a very quiet location on a very well maintained large farm. The owner was very helpful and welcoming.
Rev Clowes, Cheadle, June 2012
The house had plenty of space and the garden was excellent for young children. I enjoyed the holiday and the property. It was ideal for a family get together of 12 people ranging in age from 8 months to 70+ years. The area, although not in a major tourist zone, still provided plenty to do.
