Orchard House is a principally mid-18th century village family house, listed Grade II. It stands back from the aptly named Cherry Tree Avenue, close to the gates of Beningbrough Hall and its associated parkland, and enjoys over 100 metre of frontage to the River Ouse with full riparian rights. The garden slopes down through woodland to the river which runs well below, so there is no danger from flooding. Salmon as well as coarse fish are caught there these days.

The house is very much of the local vernacular: hand made clamp bricks under a tiled roof, a mixture of batten and panelled doors, open fires and heavily timbered ceilings. It feels airy and spacious; no low ceilings or cramped quarters. The gardens adjoin the parkland of the National Trust property Beningborough Hall.
