  • Glorious 15th century Grade II* listed gatehouse situated in the picturesque village of Bolton Percy
  • The village pub and churchyard on either side and magnificent oak gates to hide behind makes it an idyllic village setting
  • The original character provides a truly unique stay perfect for couples wanting a romantic break
Property code: 78497

This unique escape will provide a break to remember with its original character, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and impressive doorways situated in a sleepy village surrounded by countryside.

This delightful property, situated just 10 miles from York, is perfect for a romantic getaway – with the hound in tow, of course! Sleeping two humans in a regal double bed surrounded by fantastic original features, this old defensive building is an opportunity to step back in time during your stay. Go for walks around the grounds of Edwardian house Lotherton Hall (11 miles), or visit England’s oldest visitor attraction, Mother Shipton’s Cave (25 miles), which opened in 1630.

The property, which used to be surrounded by a courtyard of medieval buildings, is fabulously bright and airy despite its age. The kitchen, on the ground floor, has a sleek, contemporary feel that complements the high ceilings and Tudor-style windows perfectly. Sit at the breakfast bar for quick, casual bites, or head upstairs to the open-plan living space and sit at the ornate dining table for those special meals. Snuggle up together on the sofa or take a comfy chair in the evenings, watching something relaxing on the TV while the pup snoozes at your feet. At bedtime, sink into the extraordinary four-poster bed; wake up refreshed, head downstairs for your morning coffee and sit out on the decking, surrounded by mature trees.

You’re in an ideal position for exploring the wonderful historic buildings in the area; head to Harewood House (19 miles) and discover the lake and park with your four-legged friend, or travel further to Selby Abbey (20.5 miles) where you can all go inside and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Set sail with City Cruises York (12 miles) and enjoy travelling on the very river that brought the Vikings to York. Get in touch with nature at RSPB Fairburn Ings (18 miles) and see if you can spot lapwings and redshanks in the wetlands.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

An absolutaely stunning property in a peacful quiet location. The Gatehouse is full of historic interest with the delightful sound of the church bells from the adjacent church ringing out the hour, adding to the overall atmoshere of the property. You are made to feel so at home by the owner who adds lots of the quality touches. Beautiful.

This is a unique opportunity to stay in a historic building. You will derivatives struggle to find anything to match this. It really has the wow factor. The kitchen is great and fully equipped. Great to work in too. You may find it dark because, as a fully original and sympathetic restoration there are only 3 windows and the building is surrounded Read moreby trees. But its a small price to pay and if the weather is good you can sit or on the terrace. Hide
