The farm lies half a mile north east of the village of Acklam and lies to the north side of Thrussendale Road. Proceed out of the village turn right on to Thrussendale Road which is sign posted at the bottom of the road to Birdsall and Thixendale and you will see the farm on the left hand side of the road up the hill.
The farm lies approximately 6 miles from the market town of Malton and 7 miles from Stamford Bridge and 15 miles from the City of York. The property is on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, close to the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 10 miles from Castle Howard and only 30 miles from the East Coast
Thrussendale Farm has been transformed by the current owners from an attractive grassland farm with high landscape and amenity value into a diversified business and lifestyle opportunity with award winning holiday accommodation business. The exceptional site on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds provides an ideal location from which to further expand the business combining spectacular uninterrupted views across the Vale of York with a rural setting and good accessibility.
A purchaser will be aquiring a highly regarded award winning and established business and may seek opportunities to further expand the business or to continue to run a mixed business from the farm. The farmhouse itself is beautifully located and is supported by an excellent range of livestock and storage buildings. There is separate access to the holiday business providing privacy. It is extremely rare for opportunities such as this to be offered for sale.
Thrussendale Farmhouse - A four bedroom detached house constructed in the late 1980’s in an attractive reclaimed traditional clamp brick. The house which is in good decorative condition has a dining kitchen, a good size utility room, dining room and large lounge on the ground floor. On the first floor are two large bedrooms, two smaller bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a private office, and a good sized family bathroom.
Outside - Situated to the north of the farmhouse is a large garage which is brick built with a pantile roof and a concrete tile floor. The garage provides a large storage area and covered parking with electric up and over garage doors. This building provides useful additional accommodation being close to the main house and prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries with regards to permission needed for alternative uses.
Farm Buildings - To the north of the steading is a range of farm buildings extending to 10,900 sq ft. They are arranged to support the livestock enterprises on the farm or could be adapted for other purposes.
The Land - The land is all currently laid to pasture and predominantly west facing and varies from gently sloping land to the west of the steading which is capable of mowing and silage, to some steep sloping land on the north eastern boundary which provides excellent shelter for livestock. In recent years the farm has supported successful pedigree sheep and cattle enterprises on the farm.
The Private Hill - Since purchasing the property, the current owners have diversified the farm to include five luxury boutique domes. These include four accommodation domes and a reception dome to welcome guests. This successful development has attracted considerable accolades since opening in 2019 including the Welcome to Yorkshire Bronze Award 2020 for The Best New Tourism Business. Quality in Tourism Five Star Gold Award together with a rare unique accommodation accolade, the business was a finalist in the SME Business Awards 2020 for New Tourism Businesses and the winner of Tripadvisor's 2022 Travellers Choice award.
The site attracts many repeat guests and is highly rated on social media, Trip Advisor and Expedia.
Sitting proudly right on the edge of the North Yorkshire Wolds, The Private Hill offers unspoilt views for many miles across the Vale of York.
