This complex has been created by the skilful conversion of a range of former traditional stone barns and now provide a most attractive and aesthetically pleasing holiday complex in a superb elevated position from where there are commanding panoramic views over the surrounding countryside in what is a prime tourist area. Sproxton itself lies on the western extreme of the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and only a short distance south of Helmsley on the southern edge of the National Park which itself forms an extremely popular holiday destination. There are many natural attractions in the area and the North York Moors National Park and nearby Dalby Forest offer many miles of hill walking and outstanding scenery to enjoy. There are numerous small villages and pubs and on the east coast there are excellent sandy beaches near Scarborough whilst further north is the dramatic coastline near Robin HoodÂ’s Bay and Whitby. Attractions in the region include the North York Moors Steam Railway based at Pickering and a short distance to the south lie the mansion houses of Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall, the ecclesiastical ruins of Rievaulx Abbey and Byland Abbey and castles at Helmsley, Pickering and Scarborough. In addition, the city of York with its city walls and superb Minster lies about 24 miles away to the south.

There are therefore a wide variety of attractions available in the area for holiday visitors which is capable of being translated into a good occupancy rate for tourism based businesses in the area. The sale of this complex therefore offers potential purchasers the ideal opportunity to acquire a very complete package for someone wishing to live in an idyllic village setting whilst at the same time generating a significant income from holiday lettings.

The complex comprises one permanent residential cottage and four holiday units together with an adjoining garden and small paddock with the whole extending to approximately 1.67 acres.
