From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


With traditional features and a cosy open fire, this is a perfect property from which to explore the area.

Tucked away in a rural setting within the North York Moors National Park, this former barn and house are set across the garden from each other, enjoy glorious views and each makes a lovely holiday home with enjoyable walks from the door. The Wheelhouse (ref IQL) has been carefully restored to combine a wealth of traditional features, such as exposed stonework and an unusually spacious garden room that was formerly the wheelhouse for horses threshing corn. Harfa Bank (ref IRY) is a true family home and enjoys original beams and a traditional fireplace. Ideal for families or friends holidaying together, the properties are just a couple of miles from the pretty village of Swainby and well placed for visiting the market town of Thirsk and surrounding ‘Herriot Country’. A little further afield is the north east coast with its quaint fishing villages and Whitby where popular Whitby Abbey stands majestically on the headland above the traditional working harbour. For the energetic there is good surfing at Saltburn. The North York Moors and Heartbeat country provide stunning scenery and are wonderful for touring. Shops and pub 2½ miles.
