  • "The Old Coach House is spacious and comfortable, well equipped and clean, with the friendly, helpful owners living in another part of the property."

    Kitchen has plenty of cooking utensils and equipment for those who wish to. No pub or shop in the village, but the nearby villages have some nice pubs, with Pocklington and York nearby for the larger facilities. An excellent position near to the York - Bridlington road giving access to the East Riding, coast and North York moors. Recommended.

  • "The Old Coach House was spacious and comfortable."

    The welcome pack of wine, sweets etc., was a nice touch. We were well placed for local pubs to eat and the owners were most helpful in recommending places. The countryside wa magnificent; we found plenty to see and occupy ourselves and we were fortunate with the weather. It was good to come home each day to a superior guest location.

  • "We had a lovely time at the cottage."

    The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The cottage was very spacious, clean, very warm and with a cool decor. It’s in a great spot for exploring the local area - York, castle Howard, the towns and villages along the east coast. We would definitely recommend and book again if we ever decide to go back.

  • "The cottage is, for the most part, lovely."

    Comfortable, spacious and a generous-sized garden. We did have a few issues: the Internet was borderline unusable for most of the time. The issue is weak WiFi rather than slow Internet, something that could be fixed I think - the access point appears to be offsite. Also, the property has a washing machine but, bizarrely, nowhere to dry clothes. No airer or dryer. If we were there for 2 weeks this would have been a real problem, one again that could be easily solved with a little airer.

  • "We had a wonderful short break."

    The hosts were very welcoming and the place was spotlessly clean. The decor was of a high standard. The beds were very comfortable. There is so much to see within an hours drive of the area that we just couldn't fit in, so another trip will be on the cards!

The property

Stamford Bridge 2.4 miles.

Dating back to when Full Sutton Hall was built and forming the east side of the court yard the Coach House was constructed to originally provide stabling for horses and garaging for two horse drawn coaches, together with living accommodation for the groom.

It has seen many changes since then, but is now a comfortable two-bedroom house, with a downstairs large bedroom with en-suite.

On the first floor there is a fully fitted modern kitchen/dining room, with views over the grounds to the front of Full Sutton Hall.

There is a modern luxury bathroom with shower and corner bath, and a spacious lounge with a wood burning stove fitted.

There is a “smart” TV fitted with an Amazon Firestick generation 2 for extensive viewing channels and films to stream.

There is a second double bedroom on this floor.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the building and grounds.

Access is via a gated driveway and there is dedicated parking for two vehicles.

Access from the parking area into a securely fenced orchard and large lawned area, with outside table and chairs, loungers and a large barbeque and floodlight to enable those extended al fresco evenings.

The grounds of the Hall back onto open countryside, and there are many species of wildlife in the gardens.

Cattle, sheep and donkeys from a nearby farm are often in fields opposite the orchard.

The Old Coach House is situated just 11 miles from the centre of York, which is renowned for its historical connections and some first-class shops and restaurants.

We are located on the edge of the delightful Yorkshire Wolds, it is an ideal location to relax and plan some exciting visits around the area.

There are numerous delightful Wolds towns and villages to explore, and many excellent restaurants and pubs nearby.

A little further afield is the East Yorkshire coast with centres including Scarborough, Bridlington, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes and many more hidden beaches and costal walks.

About the location


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.
