The thriving East Yorkshire market town of Pocklington: At the edge of the UK’s hidden gem, the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds, it’s just 12 miles from York with its reputation as one of the UKs best places to live and work. The connectivity to Leeds, London, Hull, Manchester, Newcastle and beyond via the road, rail and air networks is superb so you can commute and be in touch with big city bustle, all whilst enjoying relaxed country living.
This development is a one off. Five prestigiously crafted houses, four with south facing gardens leading to private water frontage on Pocklington Beck and duck ponds. Mature trees and hedges and rich biodiversity provide a lush backdrop to the clear views over fields, whilst access to the town and its rich and varied amenities is just minutes away – even on foot.
Pocklington has been the centre of a prosperous rural community since at least Roman times. This exclusive development is steeped in more recent history as the site of the town’s White Corn Mill and then Groves Farm, built in the 1890s. This has inspired the design, materials and bespoke craftsmanship to be used and enabled us to create unique references to the site’s heritage via the property names and special finishing touches.
