The property

A charming period property, centrally located in the tranquil village of Kilham.

Formerly the village school, it has been converted to a high standard with extensive ground floor living, boasting high ceilings and a feature brick fireplace housing a lovely new log burner.

Well placed for exploring both the East Coast and the rolling hills of the Wolds, this cottage is ideal for walkers and cyclists seeking this hidden, historic corner of Yorkshire.

You will find a bright and modern well-equipped kitchen, a family dining area and sofas to relax on, while watching Netflix or Sky Q television.

Upstairs are three pleasant bedrooms; the master with an en-suite shower and dual-aspect windows offering fine views towards the Norman church tower.

A family bathroom and handy ground floor cloakroom completes the interior and outside, the walled garden is safe for your four-legged friends to run around.

It is the perfect sheltered spot to sit and chat over a glass of wine.

A short stroll brings you to the local village inn, serving food and the village shop is also conveniently close by.

Cyclists can enjoy the surrounding quiet country lanes, while a good network of public footpaths lead you through some stunning countryside of the limestone hills.

It's a short drive along rural roads to the historic market town of Driffield, which offers independent shops, tea rooms, restaurants and a weekly market day.

Nearby Sledmere House is well worth a day out with its extensive gardens, stately home and popular tearoom.

For culture seekers, there's the added delight of the Hockney Trail, which encompasses the best of the Yorkshire Wolds.

The coast lies within half an hour's drive at Bridlington and Filey, traditional seaside resorts with long golden sands, promenades, a unique Coble Landing at Filey and a pretty harbour at Bridlington.

Be sure to visit the windswept chalk cliffs of Flamborough and Bempton RSPB Reserve, which offer spectacular coastal views.

With York an easy drive away, Old School House is the perfect base for a varied and restful holiday.
