. Deer Park stands within 20 acres of parkland that is part of Capability Brown’s design for the great park at Scampston Hall. It is a Grade II* listed crenelated, gothic miniature castle with a long and fascinating history – folly and tea house, game keeper’s cottage, army camp and family home.

It is now a spacious and very comfortable holiday house, ideal for family get-togethers, where children will find plenty to keep them entertained and adults can relax and enjoy this unique property with its numerous period features. The huge farmhouse kitchen is always cosy with heat from the Aga and there are open fires in the breakfast room and upstairs drawing room and a wood burner in the living room, adding to the ambience of these elegant rooms.

The house is surrounded by an enclosed garden with uninterrupted views over the park to Scampston Hall, a fine stately home with an award-winning walled garden and lovely restaurant. The park is a natural nature reserve and home to a wealth of wildlife, including deer, stoats and numerous species of birds. Rillington village is close by and has a useful selection of amenities including a general store, butchers, two pubs and a fish and chip shop.

The gentle undulating chalk uplands of the Yorkshire Wolds, which inspired the famous Hockney paintings, is perfect for walking and cycling and visitors can enjoy a scenic trip through the North Yorkshire Moors aboard the renowned steam train which travels from Pickering (12 miles) to the fishing port of Whitby.

Local attractions include Castle Howard, Wolds Way Lavender and Sledmere House, and family fun can be found at Flamingo Land. There are an abundance of quaint market towns and pretty villages in this area and a good choice of traditional inns and fine-dining restaurants. A short drive leads to the ancient walled city of York, steeped in history and brimming with attractions which appeal to all ages and easily accessible are the seaside resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey.
