Ainderby Quernhow, North Yorkshire


Luxury Yorkshire retreat with pool

This Georgian beauty of a house represents the very best of Yorkshire holiday homes. Luxury and style are evident throughout, but it’s the unexpected that takes this house to the next level. Swimming pool. Gym. Sauna. Highmoor truly is an exceptional retreat for bringing together family or friends.

The Location

Highmoor is in the traditional Yorkshire village of Ainderby Quernhow, ideally located for exploring the Dales and Moors of this stunning part of the UK. There are numerous market towns close by, including Thirsk with its connections to Yorkshire’s most famous vet – James Herriot. Beautiful York and Harrogate are less than an hour away and make for smashing days out. But one of the real joys of a stay at Highmoor is the access to the outdoor pursuits on the doorstep. Take the time to regroup and restore and at the end of the day return to one of the most beautiful holiday homes we’ve come across.

Trains from across the UK can carry you to Yorkshire and you could take a taxi to Highmoor if you’re planning on exploring the local area but a car certainly makes it easier to get about.
