An Equestrian Property and a Welcoming Family Home in a Peaceful Rural Location. In Pickhill, about 9 miles equidistant between Thirsk and Bedale, with Ripon a little further at 12 miles.

Amenities in these towns are numerous, including supermakets, secondary schools, a railway station with main line links to York, Darlington, Newcastle, London and Edinburgh.

There is a great Primary School in the village and there are school buses to Thirsk and Ripon, which also has a Grammar School, running from Pickhill village.

The popular Nags Head Public House, highly recommended as an eatery and with quality accommodation is in the centre of the village.

My accommodation is a very rural, quiet and peaceful location outside the village, but only two miles from the old A1 with easy access onto the A1M North and South. A commute to Leeds, York or Teeside takes approximately 45 minutes.

Outside I have gardens to three sides, parking for two cars as well as a large hard standing which could easily accommodate stables and/or garage(s) and I also have a little orchard with young Russett apple trees.

The land/curtilage around the house is large, extending to approximately 670 sq m. or 7000 sq ft. This does not include the footprint of the house.

Back in 1994 I was rescued from being an old brick agricultural building and turned into a lovely barn conversion.

I now have four bedrooms and my master bedroom, with en-suite shower room, has beautiful views over open fields to Pickhill Church. One of my other bedrooms, also en-suite has a dressing room as well. My large living room has a solid fuel stove to keep you warm on those cold winter nights and also has views over open farmland towards Pickhill. My kitchen has a range cooker as well as having plenty of room for a dining table although you could also have a dining table in the large conservatory. I'm so pleased that my owners managed to keep my character with lots of features and beams as they really make me feel special.

The man from Ewemove says that whatever the season it would be a real pleasure to return home to the peace and tranquillity here after a hard day at the work.
