Forge Croft In Skirpenbeck

Skirpenbeck , York, Yorkshire, Country town

As the name suggests, this gorgeous little cottage was once the old village blacksmith. Period features including the original forge have been paired with carefully selected modern amenities to create a top quality holiday retreat.

The detached accommodation has a fully fitted and well-equipped kitchen. The original forge takes pride of place in the large sitting room, with a lovely wood burning stove sitting in the hearth, ready to create a cosy atmosphere when cooler nights draw in. The adjoining dining area has french doors to the private courtyard. There is a cosy bedroom with zip and link super-king size bed and an en-suite shower room along with a convenient second shower room.

Tastefully furnished inside with a combination of antiques and modern comforts; the outside space is equally enchanting, with a raised garden area beyond the cobbled courtyard, a bistro set and barbecue, making it a lovely sunny spot to while the away the time. There’s even a handy covered store for bicycles, and private parking for one car.
