An original Tudor manor built in 1690 with stone mullion windows, thick oak beams and yorkstone flags. Lovingly restored into a family home, where tradition meets mod cons, from Chalon Kitchen to Linn room-to-room surround sound. Sitting in 17 acres. A perfect retreat, Crayke Manor is regarded by many locals as the most beautiful home in the County. Not only the cosiness and solidness of the Manor itself but the way it proudly sits in its 17 acre surroundings. Near enough to the nearby village to stroll to the pub and far away enough to have ones own privacy and tranquility. Guests can have access to the 1 acre garden, 16 acres of grounds, the stables and (for an extra amount) either the self-contained cottage, which sleeps 2 more or the 3-bed cottage next door (which sleeps 6-8 more). Whilst the Manor contains 9 x bedrooms), it can feel just as cosy and welcoming when only a few of the bedrooms (say on 1st floor only) are occupied. There will be a housekeeper on-call who lives in a nearby cottage, who is able to provide any assistance on arrival and during the stay.
Location: On the outskirts of the picturesque village of Crayke with its award winning The Durham Ox pub. Plentiful walks and historical sites, like Ampleforth Abbey, Rievaulx Abbey. Nearby towns like Helmsley and Easingwold. The historic city of York is only 10 miles south of the Manor.
Getting around: Parking for 6+ x cars on-site. Public transport from both Crayke Village and Easingwold town. Trains from London to York - less than 2 x hours, running every 30-minutes approx. We welcome special events, including wedding receptions. Please enquire for more details on bespoke bookings.
