About Tracy Shillito

Mark and Tracy Shillito have lived in York for many years. They moved to Kexby 9 years ago with their three children. Living in Kexby has allowed them to indulge their hobbies such as gardening, cycling, running as well as property renovation. The Coach House has been converted from outbuildings into a beautiful detached dwelling sitting adjacent to the family's home. Living next door they are on hand to advise on local amenities and attractions and ensure that you have an enjoyable stay.

Tracy Shillito purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Tracy Shillito chose North Yorkshire

We moved to Kexby as it is situated in the countryside and we were keen to live in more rural surroundings, but is still very close to York (5 miles) for work and school. Our property is in a quiet setting without being remote whilst at the same time has very easy access to local amenities.

What makes this cottage unique

Kexby is close to York city centre and is also conveniently situated for the east coast, Leeds, the Dales/Moors and local walks for people who enjoy an active break. There are several villages nearby which have good pubs/restaurants and other local amenities so everything required for an enjoyable holiday is close to hand.

The Coach House has wi-fi.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Coach House is beautiful accommodation, the best we have been lucky enough to stay in and we would like to thank the owners for all their help and hospitality during our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Coach House and would like to thank the owners for their kindness during our stay. They were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

We arrived at the Coach House on a cold windy night at the end of November but inside it was warm, cosy and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed for our 4 night stay. The house is peacefully situated a few miles from the centre of York and is very convenient for the city and its surrounding area as well as within reach of the East coast in under an hour. Tracy and Mark are just next door to answer any questions and give directions to eating places although after long days out we were content to stay in and watch TV or one of the DVDs provided. Many thanks, we hope to see you again.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at many wonderful places during our trip to the U.K., but somehow felt most at home at the Coach House. The two-story cottage is light-filled (we loved the skylights upstairs) and completely equipped. The cottage is a brief car ride to York, or, even closer, to a shuttle bus to the center of the city, which we took advantage of each day. The owners were truly welcoming and friendly. Their house is next door and we chatted when we met them in the driveway, but otherwise we had complete privacy. The cottage is off a secondary road bordered by farmland, We would wholeheartedly recommend the Coach House.

Lovely place very kind owners

  • 5 of 5

Tracy and mark saved the day for us when another property owner gave our holiday period to someone else the night before we were due to arrive. Tracy was very kind and responded immediately to my email and we spent a lovely 5 days in a clean well maintained cottage in a great location. Tracy was on hand to give us directions. I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.
