Goodmanham is a small, historic village of approximately 100 houses and outlying farms. There is a popular pub and an ancient church. Most of the village is in a conservation area, but not the west end where the property stands. Red Lane alongside this property follows the course of a Roman road. Disused railway tracks lie at each side of the village and can provide comfortable walking. The Wolds Way and the Hudson Way pass by the village. Apart from the facilities of Market Weighton, three other market towns lie within the radius of approximately 15 miles, whilst York and Hull are almost equidistant and a little further.
About The Mill House
About 1800 a windmill and watermill were built at this property and operated until about 1900. Later the windmill was demolished, The remaining house has been progressively restored, refurbished and extended to its present desirable state. All that remains of the mill are old photographs and the mill stream which now separates the garden from the minor road. Access is by a small bridge over Mill Beck to the gravelled forecourt. Parking here, and behind the house, for half a dozen or so cars is available.
