Buildings & Places to Stay
Studley House Farm
In times past, it would
only have been the aristocracy who could stay in a historic 19th Century
farmhouse in beautiful countryside, on the site of an ancient Royal Forest, and
close to what is possibly England's smallest stately home - a veritable English
Chateau. But today you can enjoy this same privilege at Studley House Farm in
the North Yorkshire village of Ebberston, away from the bustle of everyday life.
The Bar Convent, York

oldest living convent in England, established in 1686. It now offers a variety
of award winning facilities for the general public, businesses and historians
alike. There is a fascinating museum bringing the history of the Bar Convent to
life. The beautiful chapel is open throughout the day and serious research
students may apply for access to the extensive library & archives.
