    Property description
    Castle Howard
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 3
    This luxurious and cosy apartment comprises of one double bedroom with en-suite; a separate shower room with WC; a large 'dream' kitchen and a very spacious lounge with a comfortable sofa bed for two.

    Because the area is a delight to visit all year round, a lot of attention has been paid to make sure you’ll be comfortable whenever you come to stay. Platform 1 is naturally cool in the summer, and is warm and cosy in the winter with underfloor heating and a traditional log burning stove. Regardless of the season or the weather outside, you can be sure that inside it’ll be just right.

    The sitting room was the former waiting room. Two comfortable sofas and a large dining table with chairs are arranged within the roomy interior. It's a very pleasing environment in which to relax,...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    The deep recessed 'arrow slit' windows in the bedroom are an unusual feature of the original station buildings.

    Space is something you'll find in abundance – this was after all one of the most imposing stations on the line in its day, as befitted the Earl of Carlisle and his important guests who used it.

    The large arched windows in the sitting room, flanked by the original shutters, allow the morning sunlight to cascade into this delightful room.

    As you pass through the corridor to your bedroom, take a moment to glance out of the window into the inner courtyard – a little haven where well-stocked feeders tempt a wide variety of wild birds and even the local woodpecker population.

    The bedroom has plenty of natural light provided by the courtyard windows and a Velux skylight...

Enjoyed lovely cosy nights in the lounge watching our favourite DVD along with the occasion train passing by outside. To be honest this was a really nice feature... more

We recently stayed for three days and nights at Platform 1 and I honestly couldn't fault the accommodation. Everything provided was of a high standard and contributed to the ease and comfort of our stay. We very quickly felt completely at home, assisted by the owner's warm welcome, the welcome basket with some delicious food so we didn't need to... more
