This barn conversion in a rural village was a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of central York, where Jane Greenwood and her family used to live.

“We came from a townhouse in York and immediately fell in love with the amount of internal and external space here, along with the far-reaching views of the Hambleton Hills and the ease of access to Harrogate and York,” says Jane, who bought the property in 2016.
