Claxton Grange is a group of self-contained cottages set in a village like environment. It was formerly a working farm before being converted to a holiday complex. Planning is now approved from pure holiday use to a permanent residental occupancy (subject to conditions).
The main part of the Grange is formed around an attractive courtyard with the farmhouse on the edge of the cottage community where it looks out onto stunning far reaching views. Traditionally built of clamp brick and dating back to the 1800’s it boasts two reception rooms, a generous breakfast kitchen and five bedrooms, of which two have en-suite bathrooms, as well as a house bathroom.

The application has been approved by Ryedale Council Planning Committee subject to a S106 Agreement being completed. This is pending. The S106 Agreement will require the payment of a commuted sum of £28,500 towards Public Open Space. The planning consent will also be subject to the imposition of a condition restricting the occupation of the 13 units to Local Needs Occupancy in accordance with Ryedale Council Policy SP21.
The Cottages - The cottages make up a row of pretty brick terrace houses located in their own grounds, each cottage has a sitting room with open fire and dining area, breakfast kitchen, two or three bedrooms, a house bathroom and separate WC.
