History & Environs

Crayke Manor, (formerly known as Wyndham Hall after its original owner, Thomas Wyndham), is one of North Yorkshire’s finest country houses. Listed Grade II*, of special architectural and historical interest, the original house dates from 17th Century with later additions and is predominantly Jacobean in style, rare for this part of North Yorkshire

Attractive features of the late 16th and 17th Century remain, including beautifully-restored mullion windows and leaded lights as well as magnificent oak panelling and flagstoned flooring throughout

Crayke Village lies at the edge of the most beautiful, undulating country at the foot of the Howardian Hills. This is the area where the Vale of York gives way to rolling, wooded terrain.

The Manor occupies an enviable position outside the village in a secluded Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

The area offers an extensive choice of pastimes; superb shooting and fishing nearby, championship golf courses at Ganton and Fulford, racing at nine course throughout Yorkshire and daytrips to wonderful market towns like Helmsley and Yorkshire’s stunning coastline
