The property

Nestled in the small village of Thornton, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, is this superb old Methodist chapel.

Internally, the property has been renovated into a stylish and contemporary holiday home for small families and a group of friends seeking to explore this lovely rural area, with easy access into the thriving city of York, the Yorkshire Wolds and the East Yorkshire Coast.

Entering the property, you will be greeted to an open-plan living space, with two plush sofas to curl up on and spend the evening catching up with your favourite shows, whilst the warming woodburning stove provides that extra bit of warmth.

Walk through to the well-equipped kitchen, housing a range of contemporary appliances so you can easily rustle up a delicious meal for the whole family to be enjoyed at the dining table over a well-deserved glass of wine.

Follow the steps up to the mezzanine-floor where you will find a spacious double bedroom, with plenty of furnishings for storing your personal items and serviced by an en-suite shower room with deluxe fixtures and fittings, whilst a second double bedroom rests on the ground floor, with a family wet room to support.

You are surrounded by miles' worth of landscaped gardens, perfect for exploring with long summer walks, whilst the Burnby Hall Gardens is a scenic park with two lakes and over 100+ types of water lilies.

The small linear village of Thornton lies centrally placed in the Yorkshire Wolds, surrounded by the pretty market towns of Pocklington, Driffield and Market Weighton. Close by, lies the Pocklington canal which is renowned by birdwatchers who regularly see a wide variety of birds including barn owls and kingfishers, as well as a serviced barge for rides from Melbourne through the locks. The nearby market towns offer an excellent array of independent shops, super markets, tea rooms, bars and restaurants. Well worth a visit is the nearby Elvington Air Museum, the largest independent display of its type. The beautiful historic city of York is just 12 miles away to the north west and cannot be missed with its Jorvik Viking Centre, magnificent Minster and National Railway Museum.
