  • "High-quality accommodation, fully equipped and with all the space and furnishings required."

    The setting is great, tucked-away yet right by the village green, shop, pharmacy and pubs, and so close to York by car or train. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful too, we had a wonderful time and great weather, even sitting out on the patio in October in late afternoon! The all-in-one kitchen/lounge/bedroom set-up may not suit everyone but we loved it, and the large bathroom was immaculate. Highly recommended

  • "Amazing property set in a glorious village location."

    Our host was very helpful, and knowledgeable on places of interest to visit or dine.The Cart Shed was kitted out well. The bathroom has a superb shower and bath. The train station is only a ten minute stroll from your door with a train that runs every half hour into York or in the other direction to Knaresborough and Harrogate. It was brilliant to leave our car in a secure space for most of our stay *****

The property

Nestled in the pretty village of Upper Poppleton, on the outskirts of York is this charming Grade-II listed property, Model Farm Cart Shed.

Boasting the perfect blend of a country and city break, as well as an open-plan living space that has been decorated to a high-standard whilst still maintaining some original features, Model Farm Cart Shed welcomes two guests.

After parking up and unloading your belongings, take the weight off your feet in the plush sitting area in front of the Smart TV, catching up on your favourite shows.

Rustle up a culinary delight before settling down at the dining space or step out onto your private terrace, soaking in your picturesque setting.

When the evening draws to a close, escape to the elegantly-fitted bathroom, ready to take a long soak to rest your tired legs, or treat yourself to a warm shower before climbing into the plush king-size bed, catching your rest in preparation for another fun-filled day.

Ideally-located to access a wide variety of amenities, you will find all your nearest conveniences only paces away, so you can stock up on the essentials with ease or treat your other half to a tasty meal out on the days you don’t feel like cooking!

The historical city of York resides only a short train or bus journey away and offers an ideal location for a day at the races or visiting York University.

From here you can also experience the renowned Shambles, with its cobbled streets and medieval shopping centre, admire the iconic York Minster, or tour the National Railway Museum or Jorvik Viking centre, before refuelling with a sweet treat at Betty’s Café Tea Rooms.

Alternatively, spend the day in the popular town of Harrogate, or even Leeds, which are both easily accessible by car and where you can enjoy an array of shops, pubs, eateries, restaurants and cafes.

For those who prefer to spend their days amongst nature, the North York Moors National Park and Yorkshire Dales National Park are close by, with a peppering of walking and cycling trails to discover.

Whether it’s history, nature or city living you’re after, Model Farm Cart Shed has everything you need and more.

About the location


Howardian Hills AONB 14 miles; Leeds 25 miles; North York Moors National Park 25.4 miles.

The city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums(including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Explore York’s quaint streets and hidden corners, or take an excursion further afield to the Dales, Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Yorkshire is rich in stately homes, with Harewood House and Castle Howard just two of several within an hour’s drive. A cycling city boasting two theatres, character pubs and great shopping, York has it all.
