Key features



AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING VILLAGE SETTING! This delightful village cottage, formerly the old post office has been in the family for many years. The property now requires modernisation and upgrading throughout.

There is a POTENTIAL BUILDING PLOT in the garden, subject to consents.

The property briefly comprises entrance hall, lounge, kitchen/ diner, conservatory, utility room/ store with granary above, landing with two generous bedrooms and bathroom. Oil fired central heating.

There is a concrete sectional garage, plenty of parking and large gardens.

The most remote village in the Yorkshire Wolds, Thixendale stands at the meeting place of six valleys, surrounded by stretches of chalk grasslands. It is most known for its location near the midway point of the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail and is a popular centre for walkers. During the 18th century, Thixendale became part of the extensive Sledmere estates, under the ownership of the Sykes family. A succession of Sykes owners improved the cottages and civic buildings to give us the 'model estate' look that much of the village retains today (though most of Thixendale is no longer part of the Sledmere estates).
