extends to approximately 70 feet and sleeps 4 in 2

– a 1940’s fruit van and our oldest a 1927 wooden

chassis wagon. It has 3 bedrooms – 2 doubles & 1

twin ie 1 four poster one half tester and 2 bunks.

The shower is a genuine local red telephone box

and the toilet is a copy of King Arthur’s throne –

AKA "Arthur’s Seat" – for that very regal


With little traffic and no noise, it all adds up to a

unique experience in an idyllic setting, in a location

which is – perhaps the most undervalued,

unexplored & unknown – The Yorkshire Wolds.

Other Facilities:

All properties are fully gas centrally heated and

double-glazed. There is ample parking within the

confines of the three-acre garden.

Sited on the original platform and enclosed within

its own garden there is plenty of space for

barbecues, sunbathing (weather permitting!) or just

relaxing in pleasant surroundings.

Cats and dogs:

All pets are welcome - except Giraffes, Sabre

toothed Tigers and Hippo's

(unless full house training can be demonstrated).

No charge is made for these facilities.

All we ask is that you hoover up before leaving and

keep all pets off the furniture.

In ALL cases any animal brought on holiday must

be kept on a lead for the protection of the horses,

dogs and cats that live here. In addition there is an

assorted menagerie of chickens, turkey and geese

roaming freely so dogs should be kept on leads at

all times when outside.

All services – electricity and gas* – are included in

the price. Both Enthorpe & Bainton can

accommodate a cot but this must be requested

before arrival.

*Please note that due to the spiraling cost of fuel

that each holiday is limited to one large tank (47kg)

of gas. Further supplies can be obtained at the

prevailing rate from ourselves Currently £55 each.

We apologise for this but we are unable to absorb

this cost any longer

ENTHORPE  is located 10 miles northwest of BEVERLEY and 18 miles to the East of YORK. The nearest coast is 20 miles away at FLAMBOROUGH. With SCARBOROUGH, BRIDLINGTON, WHITBY all within easy reach. Not only are the WOLDS beautiful and unexplored but they are sited so you can explore the NORTH YORK MOORS and the DALES ......     BUT WHY ???  .....when you have miles of scenery like this. No cars, no noise, no pollution and very little population (ENTHORPE population is currently 6. 4 Adults and 2 children…  Around every corner is a picnic site, every village has a pond, a pub. OR BOTH! ... And since 2007 there’s even a TESCO at MARKET WEIGHTON - With fuel - Wow!, we will be getting post next! Pilgrims walk barefoot from as far afield as Mombasa! Actually I meant Middleton, I always get them mixed up… All this and every home comfort you can imagine..... ie electricity.... which arrives by bucket daily on the back of a bicycle, (ridden by Horace...) and water which is absolutely FREE .... but only on Mondays between the hours of 1am & 1:15am....... Ps...only kidding... we haven’t got a TESCO’s....
