They stopped to get their horse reshoed & they fell in love with the charm of the area and decided to stay.
The original horseshoe is perfectly placed in one of the beams in the sitting room, a lovely sentiment! The Grade II listed house has been lovingly updated, the juxtaposition between the listed front and modern orangery at the rear works perfectly.

Local Life in Easingwold
Easingwold Is one of North Yorkshires hidden gems. The traditional cobbled market square encompassed by beautiful Georgian architecture and pretty green exudes so much character, charm and warmth. It really is a picture-perfect town.
If that isn’t enough, Easingwold offers a fabulous array of amenities, from independent shops to cater for every need, and along with the weekly Friday open air market, schools and recreational facilities, it really does have it all.
To name but a few, enjoy a latte at The Curious Table, a light lunch at The Olive Branch and Dinner at The George! There are gift and clothing boutiques for that special present, flower shop, galleries, a butcher, a baker, everything except a candle stick maker!
Situated at the edge of the Howardian Hills you are a stone’s throw away from beautiful scenery and woodland walks.
There are excellent transport links to the A19 and A1. A regular bus service, and with York Station less than half an hour away running regular train to King Cross, you could be in London within two hours.
We think it’s the perfect place to live!
