    About this property

    • Crayke House is a charming Grade II listed two bedroom cottage. The original building dates back to the 17th century with a later 19th century addition. The property is steeped in history and is thought to be the first house to be built in the village. This idyllic property benefits from breathtaking views across the Yorkshire Dales.

      Currently run as a holiday cottage, the property has undergone a full renovation during the last ten years and is now presented in immaculate, turn-key condition. A great deal of care has been taken to preserve the property's character with exposed wooden beams throughout and wooden pannelled ceilings. The current owner has made some wonderful additions including a bespoke stone fireplace in the sitting room and wooden flooring in the main reception rooms.

      Arranged over two floors, the spacious living space extends to just over 1,300 square feet. There are two sizeable reception rooms on the grounds floor, both with log burning stoves.

      The handcrafted kitchen has plenty of cupboard space and a useful pantry room, with views across the rear garden. Leading on from the kitchen is a boot room and WC with direct access outside.

      With a larger than average garden to the rear and a pretty patio garden to the front, two stone outbuildings provide plenty of storage.

    Crayke House really is a rare find, finished to an impressive standard, its not hard to imagine spending cosy nights in by the fire or sitting on the patio taking in the views.
