About the property

Cottage in Thornton le Clay, York, Yorkshire, England - Peaceful Village Location Close To Lovely Countryside

Wood Cottage is situated in a quiet village. It was formerly used as a workshop and saw mill on a small farming plot and used to include a farmyard and barn. The latter space now provides an attractive garden. There is a sense of privacy but countryside walks and a pub are close by. There is a historic church about half a mile away. Comfortable accommodation would suit a family or small group.
