The Red House Experience

Red House offers the perfect location for a family holiday. It is a thriving estate with a unique, inviting atmosphere enhanced by an equestrian centre, a small caravan CL site, and a few, friendly residents. There is so much space and so much to do on site that, with the weather in your favour, you may not want to leave the grounds. Footpaths and bridleways lead out enticingly from the 70 acre grounds, giving you the chance to explore rivers, woods and the exceptional countryside around.

Red House - A Place for All Seasons

Spring: Witness nature coming to life as birds and flowers come out in the open. Stroll through the bluebells in Redhouse Wood or watch the first boats of the season appear on the River Ouse.
Summer: Just soak in the countryside or enjoy the shared, outdoor heated swimming pool, grass tennis court and croquet lawn.
Autumn: See the leaves changing colour and the hedgehogs make their final forays of the year, take part in the village apple juicing which takes place in the grounds. Enjoy the sounds and rooftop skimming fly-bys of migrating geese as they come in to winter at the nearby lagoon.
Winter: Epic country walks through woodland with sightings of deer followed by the chance to sit by the crackling log stove.

Red House - A Great Base from which to explore North Yorkshire

Despite being 2 miles off the beaten track, York and its attractions is only 6 miles (12mins) away with a convenient Park and Ride on the ring road. Beautiful Harrogate is 16 miles (30mins) to the west with its easy parking and unique charms. We'd also recommend Knaresborough (12 miles, 25mins) which has many surprises and also historic connections with Red House. Further afield, Pickering in the North York Moors is only 34 miles (1hr) away and Skipton, in the Dales, is 1hr 10mins from Red House.

A self-contained Victorian wing of the Main House. Its three, almost symmetrical, façades look out onto the courtyard, the oval and over its own garden and across open farmland to Redhouse Wood. It has a host of unique features including an arched chimney housing the old school bell, tiled floors unevenly worn over 150 years by gentry, servants and school children and a huge, brick faced fireplace with multifuel stove.

This single storey old headmaster's house is built into the 17th century garden wall and has a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. It has views over its own, private garden and the estate croquet lawn. Its vast day room with log burning stove and adjacent kitchen provides a great focus space.

This cosy, mid-terraced cottage was converted in the 1980's from the old estate pigeon loft and is built from the original bricks and pantiles. Inside it is thoroughly modern with a log burning stove and lovely views through the patio doors to the rear of fields and wildlife. The signal is a throwback to Red House's school era when the ground floor of the cottage was used as the model railway room, the signal came from the local station when it closed, so no trains will be passing!

A 17th century wing of the original house, which may have originally housed the estate's horse drawn cart, now boasts exposed roof trusses and views over the chapel and garden.
