Located only 6 miles from the historic city of York, this cottage is part of a group which has been renovated to an extremely good standard having been equipped and furnished with quality fittings and fixtures. Tasteful co-ordinating soft furnishings have been used, and each light, bright property has a cosy open fire set in an attractive red brick surround. Attached to most of the properties is a lovely private patio and lawned garden, making it a great place for younger children to play; barbecues, portable paddling pools and outdoor toys are available. The indoor heated swimming pool, which is open daily all year round for the exclusive use of the visitors to Claxton Grange Cottages, has full changing and shower facilities, and there is also a spacious conservatory to relax in which opens onto a large enclosed lawned area for sunnier days. For the more energetic there is a full sized outdoor tennis court, games room and children’s play area.
Claxton Grange is a perfect base for exploring all the historic attractions of York, including the large medieval minster with its wealth of stained glass. Take a walk along the city walls or visit the Jorvik Viking Centre where the spirit of the Vikings is held captive for all time. Nowhere tells the story of the train better than the National Railway Museum from Stephenson’s Rocket to Eurostar. Art galleries, museums, and guided trips on the River Ouse - why not try the Ghost Cruise on an evening? York has top quality shopping, excellent restaurants and bistros and old timber-framed pubs serving wholesome food and real cask ales. Within easy driving distance is the busy market town of Pickering and the North York Moors beyond. A little further afield are the many seaside resorts and pretty fishing villages along the east coast. Alternatively access to the Yorkshire Dales National Park will take no time at all. Set within 15 acres of well kept grounds, including a lovely wildlife pond with reeds and lillies, all of which have been thoughtfully flood-lit for darker evening strolls Claxton Grange Cottages offer guests a very warm welcome. Shop, pub and restaurant 6 miles.
