Cropton is situated on the southern fringe of the North York Moors National Park and is a community of farms, smallholdings and traditional houses and cottages only 5 minutes drive from the main A170 Thirsk to Scarborough road.  This in turn gives quick and easy access to the market towns of Pickering and Kirkbymoorside to which Cropton is dependant for most of its every day amenity, although does have its own thriving village pub. The village is situated in the
heart of great walking country and is surrounded by forestry and moorland. Its nearest train station is in Malton some 15 miles away where a direct service to York gives access to the Intercity London to Edinburgh service.

Paddock House is a couple of miles North East of Cropton and can be found 'off the beaten track'. It was constructed in 1976 and whilst it is requiring some general updating it has had some recent improvements including new uPVC windows fitted throughout as well as new oil fired central heating boiler. The property offers spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. On the ground floor both the sitting room and dining room are dual aspect, enjoying views across the
moorland. The kitchen is well proportioned but would benefit from updating with utility room separate. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a smaller fourth bedroom. These are served by a house bathroom and separate W/C.

Outside the gardens extend to around a quarter of an acre, enclosed with wooden fencing and hedging. There is ample private parking as well as an integrated garage. The outside space offers plenty of scope for landscaping/enhancing.

'The occupation of the dwelling shall be limited to a person solely or mainly employed, or last employed in the locality in agriculture as defined in Section 290(1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1971, or in forestry (including any dependents of such a person residing with him) or a widow or widower of such a person.'
