Hollymoor House lies on the edge of Cliffe Estate between Aldbrough St John (1.3 miles) and Piercebridge (1.5 miles) in pretty countryside and in a particularly tranquil location.

Local facilities are excellent with Aldbrough St John having a village hall, doctors surgery, an excellent pub and cricket club.

The historic town of Richmond lies about 9miles south with its Norman origins and Georgian architecture and a good range of shops, professional services and leisure facilities. There is a weekly market and a well renowned secondary school. Only 13 miles west is Barnard Castle, which is the home of the Bowes Museum and Barnard Castle School.

Darlington is about 7 miles east with a full range of shops and supermarkets as well as an east coast mainline railway station. York is the next stop south (about 20 minutes) and London Kings Cross is around 2 hours 30 minutes away. The A1(M) is within easy reach.

North Yorkshire has a rich natural heritage with The Dales and The Moors National Parks close by. The Lake District too is within easy striking distance.


Hollymoor is a barn conversion of the highest quality. Completed in 2014 it has been almost entirely rebuilt and extended to create the most fantastic, light, spacious and flexible family home in a setting of true tranquillity, and yet is accessible to all day to day family needs.

By rebuilding as they have, the creators of this lovely home have taken the opportunity to include the very best fixtures and fittings throughout the house, with Porcelanosa ceramics, Rako lighting and audio, a kitchen designed and fitted by PWS of Newton Aycliffe, a biomass boiler with both underfloor and wall mounted heating, and properly filtered and softened private water from its own artesian well. It is also insulated to the highest level and has double glazing throughout.

The house is approached through electric, farm style, gates to either a yard on the right or a gravel sweep at the front of the house. There is a beautifully sheltered, east facing morning terrace, and the front door leads to a lovely welcoming hall. The way the house is currently set up this hall leads to spacious annex accommodation and through to the main house via the living room and kitchen area. There is also direct access in to the main home from the back door leading through the boot room.

The accommodation is set out over two floors with all rooms making the most of the stunning setting.


The gardens and grounds extend in total to about 5.72 acres, of which nearly two acres are taken up by the beautiful lake at the bottom of the garden. The landscaping is deliberately simple with laurel hedges dividing the space without taking away from the overall setting. The pond has been cleared of years of fallen timber and is now a magnet for wildlife. It is well stocked with British native course fish, and is accredited by the Environment Agency as a registered fishery.

The property also has a registered Agricultural Holding number.

Further away from the house is a meadow which is fenced for horses and which provides about 1.67 acres of excellent grazing. There is also a fully drained outdoor riding arena measuring approximately 40m x 20m and which has a rubber/sand mix surface. There is also a small holding area alongside and a fully kitted out Canadian Barn with three loose boxes, tack room, mess room with WC and cart shed. It is timber-clad with a concrete floor and connecting yard, and has both water and power to it.

Adjacent to the house is a purpose built fuel store with space for logs and hopper for wood pellets supplying the biomass boiler.
