  • "Very enjoyable and comfortable stay at The Old Hall."

    A beautiful property in lovely surroundings. We had a brilliant time as a family of 10. Plenty of room for everyone and good size bedrooms. Beautifully presented and decorated. The only downside was issues acessing hot water, we had to boil pans of water to wash up and get a bath, unless you could handle a very cold shower!!!

    So very glad you enjoy The Old Hall , all guests have my details to contact me directly if there any issues at all, the hot water takes a couple of minutes to travel, large country house can sometime not be instant for anything :) it’s is a case of running the taps an extra couple of minutes . I’m so sorry you were inconvenienced . Property Owner

  • "Beautiful house and garden and location and ambiance."

    2 different kitchens useful Space for families to spread out The en suite shower wasn’t working which was clearly an ongoing problem that hadn’t been sorted/communicated. Hot water therefore was more problematic for 2 baths-took a while to re warm and ran out twice in 72 hrs Lovely Aga-the pilot blew out and quick response to fix this

  • "Very enjoyable stay in this beautifully furnished country house."

    Plenty of space in both the house and garden. This was important as we have 4 grandsons. The owner lived nearby and was very helpful and welcoming. The WI-FI was a little wonky as was the plumbing but this did not stop us from having a very good week in a lovely location.

    Thank you so much for the feed back, it was so unlucky that Northern Power who deliver the electric to the village went down during your stay, that effected the wifi and the water system runs from wifi . I can only apologise for matters out of my control. Lovely family who enjoyed the space, hopefully Jacob will play football for his number 1 team ! My grandson Oliver blue made a good friend :) Property Owner

East Ayton 5.8 miles.

Located in Snainton near East Ayton in North Yorkshire is The Old Hall, a stunning, five-bedroom home.

Blending both contemporary and traditional features throughout, The Old Hall offers a sizeable, luxurious home for a group of ten guests, looking to explore the delights of the North York Moors National Park.

Be welcomed by an expansive private driveway, with plenty of space to park up and unload your belongings; take in the grandeur of your new home-from-home, with its charming, stone-fronted exterior.

Travel inside to be greeted by the spacious living/dining room, with plenty of seating to host your party, where you can socialise, relax in front of the rustling open fire, and gather for formal mealtimes.

Benefit from two kitchen areas, the first housing an AGA and a lovely wooden dining table, paying homage to the home’s origins, whilst the second features a sleek design with state-of-the-art appliances, offering the best of both worlds.

Enjoy your meals indoors or head outside to bask in your surroundings for an alfresco affair, with a far-reaching lawned area and a patio to take advantage of, dotted with pretty blooms.

As the sun sets, cosy up in the snug with the warmth of the woodburning stove in the backdrop, before retiring to one of five beautifully-appointed bedrooms; select between a king-size with en-suite and woodburning stove, two doubles with Smart TVs and woodburning stoves, a further double with en-suite, a twin with a TV.

An indulgent roll-top bath can be found in either of the bathrooms, where you can unwind after a busy day of activities, or if you'd prefer a refreshing shower of a morning, head for the en-suite.

Once you're ready to explore, nearby you will find the Snainton Golf Centre, the perfect spot for golf fans, or don your walking boots to travel through Chafer Wood, whilst the North Riding Forest Park offers a lofty landscape to discover, ideal for wildlife spotting.

Travelling towards Pickering, stop off at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Pickering Castle for a historical day out, or for some fun upon the water, visit the North Yorkshire Water Park or try your hand at fishing; nearby East Ayton is where you'll find your local hub of amenities.

Round off your break in Scarborough, brimming with a variety of attractions, including Scarborough Castle, SEA LIFE Scarborough, Scarborough North Cliff Golf Club, Alpamare UK, and the sweeping golden terrain of South Bay Beach, before returning home for supper.
