Successful holiday letting business


Skipwith Station provides an opportunity to purchase an established and improving holiday letting business based on quirky accommodation created from historic railway carriages which have been carefully developed and ideally suited to the former railway station location, providing appeal to families and railway enthusiasts seeking self catering accommodation with a difference. Situated on the edge of Skipwith Common the property is ideally located for access to the City of York as well as the wider tourist attractions found across Yorkshire.

The property includes a four bedroom family home which incorporates the original ticket office and waiting room which have been sympathetically extended and updated to provide comfortable owners accommodation. In addition the property provides four letting units, three of which have been created from former railway carriages together with more recent redevelopment of a former goods building.

Skipwith Station is situated on the former Derwent Valley Light Railway which was constructed from 1912 and stretched 16 miles linking Cliffe to York as a method of transport for the agricultural community. Despite being heavily used during WWII to service Government depots and airfields, demand from agricultural traffic reduced resulting in the line eventually closing in 1985.

The holiday enterprise at Skipwith Station has been carefully developed utilising the history of the site to provide holiday accommodation with a real difference.
