The property

Pocklington 3 miles.

Boulton House was built around 1800 as a smallholding with gardens and large paddock.

The Lodge was originally a cattle byre, which has been tastefully converted to the present accommodation enjoying all the comforts of the 21st century, situated next to the owners' home in the small hamlet of Bolton, 3 miles from Pocklington.

The cottage boasts oak floors, tasteful soft furnishings and elegant furniture, all adding to its timeless appeal.

The fully-equipped kitchen with its granite work surfaces is at the very heart of the cottage and features a dining table as well as a window seat and sofa, meaning the cook will never be lonely!

After a hard day touring the Wolds, exploring York or walking the length of Filey Beach, a long soak in the feature freestanding bath is an unforgettable luxury followed by a restful sleep in one of the beautifully dressed beds.

The two bedrooms are light and spacious and offer a choice of double and king-size beds with a useful pull-out single bed for that extra guest.

The enclosed lawned garden has a gravelled patio with furniture, and can also be locked, so is the ideal place for storing your bikes, just remember to bring a cover in case the weather is not being kind!

Bolton is nestled at the foot of the spectacular Yorkshire Wolds, beautifully covered by a patchwork quilt of arable fields and offering terrific views across the Vale of York and beyond.

The nearby ancient market town of Pocklington is like stepping back in time and still has its very own Town Crier proclaiming major events.

One of the themed events is based on acrobat Thomas Pelling's attempt to fly from the church tower in 1733!

The area is the gateway to the Wolds, dotted with pretty traditional villages, stunning manor houses and quiet country roads meandering to the sandy beaches of the delightful Yorkshire Coast.

York, just twelve miles away is a temptation no one can resist with medieval streets, the iconic Minster and the York Designer Outlet, there really is something to suit all tastes.

Within an hour you could be walking on Filey's five miles of golden sand, hearing the crashing of the waves and the calling of the gulls.

This delightful Victorian gem has remained relatively untouched and is a perfect excuse for a grand day out.

The Lodge is the perfect base to enjoy the many varied attractions and activities that this wonderful area has to offer.

About the location

POCKLINGTON

York 13 miles.

The pretty little market town of Pocklington nestles at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds in the Vale of York. It is perhaps best known for Burnby Hall Gardens - 8 acres of gloriously beautiful gardens with two large lakes which are home to the National Collection of water lilies. There are several world famous attractions nearby - majestic Castle Howard, beautiful Sledmere House, and of course the historic city of York. The town boasts a leisure centre offering a wide range of sports, including swimming, a Civic Centre and the Pocklington Arts Centre, which shows various films and stages live shows throughout the year. Pocklington is also home to Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre, known worldwide for its meditation courses and retreats, plus the KP Golf Club is situated approx. 1 mile away and offers wedding and other event facilities, a stylish bar and a restaurant, as well as an 18 hole championship golf course. Just a few miles away is the village of Warter, which is where David Hockney produced his 'Bigger Trees Near Warter' painting. Nearby are various cycle ways including the North Sea Cycle Route and walkers will love either the long distance walks along the Wolds Way or one of the many more circular walks in the area for all abilities. For those who enjoy touring by car, Pocklington forms part of the Pocklington Round, a lovely scenic drive which takes in some of the area’s prettiest villages.
