The moment you catch a tantalising glimpse of West Carlton in the distance amongst the trees you know you have come to somewhere special. A Haven of peace and tranquility in a lovely rural corner or Yorkshire known as "Holderness".
Built in the 1720's West Carlton is an impressive Georgian Manor House in 2 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. Tim and Caroline Maltas have lived here since 1986 lovingly restoring what was previously the farmhouse on a 300acre farm into the elegent Country Guest House you see today. The house stands on its own surrounded by fields and because there is no light pollution the sunsets and starry skys in this part of the world are magnificent.
The grounds of this wonderful house provide a relaxing environment teeming with birds and wildlife. Pheasants strutt across the lawn and the odd roe deer stops for a look at you . The bird life is amazing with tree sparrows, goldfinches, blue tits and Woodpeckers all being regular visitors to the numerous feeders dotted around the grounds. Three types of Owls. Barn ,Tawney and Little can often be heard calling to each other on still summer evenings.
The sheltered raised Italian garden is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and completely unwind and recharge the batteries. There is no road noise so it is just you and the birds ( and occasionally Henry the Spaniel and Woody the Golden Retreiver our resident meeters and greeters!!)
Whether your visit to West Carlton is for business or pleasure you can be sure of the warmest of welcomes to this largely undiscovered corner of Yorkshire.
