A lovingly restored, 15th century barn in the pretty village of Brayton, 1.5 miles south of Selby. Private and self-contained, the barn offers luxurious, modern accommodation with a large outside space and impressive views of the nearby medieval church. Easy access to the M1, A1, M62 and A19 with good transport links to major locations such as York (14 miles), Leeds (24 miles) and other destinations make it a relaxing and ideal base to unwind and explore the beautiful Yorkshire surroundings.
The barn is in an idyllic location hidden away down a small, quiet lane away from the road yet within walking distance of everything you need. The impressive Grade 1 listed medieval church that stands opposite dates as far back as the Norman times and has wonderful architecture. Why not enjoy a cup of Yorkshire tea or glass of wine in the garden whilst gazing at the impressive view?

Brayton is a friendly Yorkshire village with a warm and sociable community. There are two local pubs within a short walk. The nearest grocery store is 5 minutes’ walk away. There is a wonderful farm shop with a cafe on site which sells locally sourced meats, pies, vegetables and gifts. The local butchers sell freshly made pork pies which we believe to be the best in Yorkshire!
There are wonderful riverside, woodland and countryside walks and cycle routes from the door.
The barn is located just 1.5 miles from the historic centre of Selby. The central attraction of Selby is the 11th century Abbey, birthplace of Henry I.
