Apple Tree Cottage is a Grade II listed barn that has been sympathetically converted and restored to a very high standard to provide extremely comfortable self-catering accommodation. All the stone, bricks, roof tiles and exposed beams and trusses used came from the original building itself to preserve the character of the cottage. Inside the living area is open plan to the ceiling showing the original roof trusses and beams.
The kitchen is fully fitted and has all modern conveniences including dishwasher, oven with extractor fan, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, toaster, kettle and washing machine (tumble drying facilities available), and has a reclaimed quarry tiled floor.
The living/dining area is fully carpeted and centrally heated and also has a small real flame electric stove to give the appearance of a real fire. The sofa converts into a large double bed, giving comfortable accommodation for up to 6 people. The window seat looks out over rolling farmland to the south, and has stunning views. For guests entertainment there is a widescreen digital TV, video, DVD player, books and games to suit all ages.
There are 2 bedrooms, a downstairs double, and a twin room upstairs, which is galleried over the living area, both of which have radio alarms and hairdryers. The bathroom is downstairs and has both bath and shower facilities.
Outside there is an enclosed patio area to the rear, with outdoor furniture, barbeque and outdoor drying facilities. To the front the garden has a lawn, and both sides have wonderful views of the Yorkshire Wolds and our farm.
Apple Tree Cottage is set in beautiful, peaceful countryside, next door to Howsham Wood, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and part of the Howardian Hills AONB. The wood is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna including bluebells and primroses in the spring, and a growing community of deer.

Heading East on the A64 from York (towards Malton and Scarborough), at the top of the big hill (Whitwell Hill) turn right for Kirkham Priory (There is another turn a few hundred yards along if the first one is missed). Drop downhill towards Kirkham (over railway and river) past Priory on right, up and out of the village on the same road passing the Stonetrough Inn on the left. Stay on this road - very twisting and narrow - until you reach a T-junction at Westow. Turn right and carry on through the village - Blacksmiths Inn pub on the left. Travel on through village and up a smaller hill, down the other side onto relatively straight piece of road. Where the road begins to bear left, our farm drive is on the right. Woodhouse Farm is 3 fields in land from the road, next to large wood. Approx 1 mile out of village
