Character holiday cottage business with residential appeal


Station House and cottages are ideally situated to take advantage of attractive tourist locations including the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay as well as the North York Moors National Park with its many attractions. The property is within convenient travelling distance of the historic City of York and highly regarded market towns of Helmsley and Malton.

The historic small village of Brompton by Sawdon, where William Wordsworth was married at All Saints' Church in 1802, is referred to as "The birthplace of aviation" due to the long term
residence of aeronautical engineer Sir George Caley. The village boasts a range of amenities including the Grade 1 listed All Saints church, the well regarded Brompton Forge café and an award winning butcher. The village has a popular primary school. There are pleasant walks around the village along the beck past the mill pond and around the lake. There are many well regarded country pubs and restaurants available in the immediate locality.


Station House occupies an enviable setting on the southern fringe of Brompton by Sawdon and was the village railway station as part of the old Forge Valley Line between Scarborough and Pickering until decommissioning in the 1950's.
This large character detached property historically provided the Station Master's house, ticket office and waiting room with adjoining Goods buildings and these have been historically converted to provide owners accommodation within the central section together with four holiday cottages within the adjoining wings.

The conversion of the building has retained many original Victorian features including the raised platform and a south facing veranda and the business has been successfully operated by the current owners for nearly 30 years who are now looking to retire.

The property is ideally positioned to take advantage of the well established local tourist market and lies in close proximity to the North York Moors National Park and East Coast attractions with the historic City of York and market towns of Malton and Helmsley readily accessible.


Brompton by Sawdon village is located on the A170 between Pickering and Scarborough. Station House is situated at the southern edge of the village with access from Brompton Ings Lane which leads to the village of Sherburn about 3 miles to the south and connects with the A64 Malton to Scarborough Road.
