The Old Forge is a delightful semi-detached barn conversion set on a working horse stud farm in open countryside, just outside the village of Brandesburton. It provides the perfect base for exploring not only the stunning Yorkshire Wolds and east coast, but also the vibrant towns of Beverley and Driffield. Bright and welcoming, this dog friendly property has an open plan living space with a large inglenook fireplace complete with wood burner and deep sofas, one of which doubles as a sofa bed for an additional friend or relative to join your relaxing holiday.
The kitchen and dining area provides all the mod cons to enable the chef in the group to cook delicious home-made fayre throughout the holiday. The central staircase is flooded with natural light from the overhead Velux window and leads to the first floor, where you will find two well-appointed, cosy bedrooms. Both rooms are lovingly furnished with vaulted ceilings and en-suite shower rooms. The cottage is tastefully decorated throughout and oozes traditional Yorkshire charm and character.
Outside, the small courtyard has seating and enjoys the sun for the majority of the day. It also boasts a private hot tub, the perfect place to relax and enjoy your favourite holiday tipple. As a working stud farm, the owners offer the opportunity to look around and see some of their world class mares and foals (this can be arranged on arrival). For those with their own horses, stabling is available so your four legged friend can also enjoy a holiday (charges and additional T&C’s apply)!
Fraisthorpe Beach is perfect for horse riding and is popular with locals for exercising horses all year round. The village of Brandesburton is home to a couple of pubs offering traditional ales and bar meals, alongside a number of shops and restaurants. A short drive brings you to the pretty Wolds town of Beverley offering a host of independent shops, cafés and restaurants. A day at Beverley Races or a round of golf at one of the many local golf courses are sure to keep everyone entertained. The seaside town of Hornsea is on the doorstep and with pony rides, ice-cream and fish and chips is a lovely unspoilt family destination. With so much to do and see in the surrounding area including the RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs, the Nature Reserve at Spurn Point and the stately homes of Burton Agnes Hall, Sledmere and Burton Constable Hall, you are guaranteed a holiday to remember. Fishing within 5 miles. Beach 10 miles. Shop and pub 3 miles, restaurant 7½ miles.
