The Hare & Moon is situated in the lovely, historic, estate village of Howsham, well-known for its Grade I Jacobean Hall, and set in stunning countryside on the southern tip of the Howardian Hills, with the Yorkshire Wolds to the East. The area has an abundance of stunning walks, along the river Derwent to Howsham Mill and through local woodland. Castle Howard lies a few miles’ drive away, where there is much to enjoy and see; and the Yorkshire Arboretum is well worth a visit.

Built c.1640, The Hare & Moon is Grade 2 Listed and constructed of an unusual amber-tinted stone and is most attractive, being double fronted with traditional Yorkshire sliding sash windows to the front. The accommodation has been thoughtfully and tastefully equipped and decorated, with the benefit of modern central heating and a wood-burning stove in both reception rooms. The bespoke oak kitchen is fully equipped with quality appliances, including a dishwasher integral washer dryer. The garden room, which looks towards the Wolds, and is a great recent addition to the property and a perfect place to work. To the first floor, as well as the two generous double bedrooms and bathroom with bath and walk-in shower, there is a spacious landing, suitable as an office or dressing area.

The garden is beautifully landscaped with a sunken paved and gravel seating area, leading to an enclosed section to the rear of the property with a newly installed Urban Cedar hot tub, for those cold winter evenings and starlit summer nights.
