09 March 2017

Savills York has launched to the market an established holiday cottage business with owners accommodation in North Yorkshire.

Sands Farm Cottages at Wilton, near Pickering is nestled at the foot of the North York Moors National Park and close to Scarborough and the East coast attractions and comes complete with a three bedroom family home and seven well equipped holiday cottages.

Originally a working farm on the edge of the village, the cottages have been gradually converted from stone farm buildings with a former Methodist Chapel next to the farm having also been converted into a four bedroom cottage.

Tom Whitehead of Savills York, comments: “Sands Farm Cottages provides an extensive and well developed holiday letting complex featuring character residential accommodation. The property is available as going concern following the current owners decision to retire and provides a rare opportunity for someone to take on a fully established and successful business in a tourist hotspot.”

The village of Wilton is situated on the A170 close to Pickering and is approximately 14 miles from Scarborough, 22 miles from Whitby and 28 miles from York.

Tom adds: “The property is ideally positioned to take advantage of the well established local tourist market with the Moors, Helmsley and Dalby Forest all within a short drive with the beaches and attractions of the East coast also very accessible.”

In addition to a three bedroomed family home, the sale will includes a four bedroom holiday cottage within the former chapel and six further cottages ranging from one to three bedrooms. The property also includes a workshop and storage building and a grass paddock and children’s outdoor play area at the rear with ample parking.

The property is offered for sale with a guide price of £925,000.
