An outstanding conversion from the former granary of 'Smaws Farm', the original buildings are believed to date back to 18th Century. The building has been converted to a high standard with an imaginative layout and recently significantly extended and reconfigured to suit the modern family. The Granary is a creative blend of period and contemporary, with features such as vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and open plan living area.
Smaws Hamlet is a delightful little known community, set around a private 'Green' and surrounded by open rolling countryside between Tadcaster and Boston Spa. There are excellent shopping and recreational facilities nearby and the hamlet sits within the catchment of excellent local primary schools and Tadcaster Grammar School.
