This highly unusual Grade II Listed property, converted from a former grain store, is located on the banks of the River Ure in Langthorpe just across the bridge from the attractive old coaching town of Boroughbridge. The three bedroom property ( two doubles and a single) is spread over four floors with the spacious lounge on the third level overlooking the river and the "conical" master bedroom suite in the oast tower. It is ideally situated for easy access to both the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Parks . Boroughbridge with its range of independent shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants is a short stroll away, just across the bridge. There is a large supermarket less than 2 miles away with the farm shop for the Newby Hall estate within 500 yards from the property.

There is plenty to do and see in and around the Boroughbridge area.
York and Harrogate are great for shopping and sightseeing and both are only a short drive away. The "Park and Ride" for York City Centre is only about 15 mins away and the York Designer Outlet Centre is only a few minutes further around the ring road.
For children, the sea-side resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay are about an hours drive away. The Lightwater Valley and Flamingo Land theme parks are within easy reach.
For those who like visiting historic sites, Fountains Abbey, Ripley Castle, Studley Royal and Newby Hall are all close by .
The North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks are literally on the doorstep for those interested in walking, cycling or other outdoor activities.
There are numerous guide books, maps and tourist information leaflets at the property
