The Limes holiday home details

The Limes is a beautiful, spacious property in the charming village of Coxwold which sits between the North York Moors National Park and The Howardian Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With four bedrooms, including one ground floor double with en-suite, the house is a perfect size for family holidays. The ground floor also features a large open plan kitchen/dining room and a comfortable sitting room with cosy wood burning stove. On the second floor of the property is a family room with L shaped sofa, smart TV and Blu-ray which provides families with a much sought after second space to relax in. The Limes occupies a good sized plot with well-established gardens to the front and rear and a pretty stream running through. French doors from the sitting room open on to a paved patio with outdoor seating and a large lawn.

Coxwold is conveniently located just 20 minutes’ drive from Junction 49 of the A1. Within this pretty North Yorkshire village is a medieval church, village hall, outdoor tennis courts, tearoom and country inn. Many wonderful destinations can be reached from Coxwold including the traditional market towns of Thirsk, Helmsley and Easingwold. The famous city of York with its historic Minster, is only 20 miles away, perfectly located for a day trip. On the doorstep are two stunning natural treasures; the North York Moors National Park and the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether on foot, bicycle, horseback or even steam train, the breath-taking Yorkshire landscape is just waiting to be explored.

Enjoyed everything!
Fantastic amenities at the house. Fabulous location. Visited York several times to please 13yr old & 80yr old. Favourites York Dungeons, York Minster, NYMR Pickering Steam Train to Whitby. The Fauconberg Arms up the road served fabulous food and no issues with service. Overall great location and beautiful house. There is not much around here except a few tractors. Loved it!

We've had a really nice time in this house. It is nice and spacious, clean, well equipped and warm. Nice trips to York, Whitby and Rydale Folk Museum (well worth the visit and try the pub next diir to the museum at Hutton-le-Hole- The Crown - excellent food and service.)
