    “Wonderful property, full of character.”

    Extremely spacious and located in a fantastic location overlooking the river, with views to Whitby. Owner took the time to explain local sights and places to visit. Lovely garden with enough falling conkers to keep the kids happy for hours. Would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful house.
