A luxurious and idyllically situated two bedroomed holiday cottage which is spacious with two double bedrooms both en suite, one of which is on the ground floor. Easily accessible for York as the Park & Ride is just a 15 minute drive away, Castle Howard 5 minutes drive, Moors National Park 30 minutes & North Yorkshire Coast just 45 minutes.

Set in two thirds of an acre, and sitting 300 feet above the city of York on a small sheep farm. The wooded hillside lies between two castles. The dramatic ruins of King Richard III’s Sheriff Hutton Castle and the Baroque majesty of Castle Howard (famous as the location for the film and TV series Brideshead Revisited). Off the beaten track with big views over the Yorkshire Wolds & the Vale Of York, yet just 12 miles away from the ancient walled city of York. Our guests say they really love the peace and quiet here after a days sightseeing in York or the coast and we get lots of positive feedback about what a great nights sleep they enjoyed in our King Size & Super King Size beds with memory foam toppers.

The accommodation has marble tiled floors with under floor heating. A light & spacious living/kitchen with leather sofas, dining for up to 6 persons. Ground floor bedroom with en suite wetroom and 1st floor en suite bedroom with super king size bed or twin beds. Bring your walking boots and the dog along too as we are pet friendly and surrounded by scenic traffic free woods, public footpaths and fields to walk in and large woodside garden to enjoy. There is a charge of just £15 per dog stay. (2 maximum or 3 if small breeds).

Loved It!!!

By Maria GWH on 15-Jan-2017

Just had a weekend break and loved it!!! Beautiful location, imaculate self catering accomodation, everything you need is on hand including extra little touches such as toiletries, tea coffee sugar and biscuits, we took our dog and it really is pet friendly, big fully enclosed garden with a gate leading to a wood with very good walks in the snow which made it extra special!!.cannot reçommend enough, will definitely be going back.

Lovely place in peaceful setting

By Barry C on 01-Jul-2016

We have stayed here three times and it is always wonderful. Dog friendly and great breakfasts. Richard and Kim are very helpful and welcoming. We have stayed here when visiting our son at York University and we much prefer this place to staying in York and the journey into the city is only a short drive. Local pubs are good, as is the pizza takeaway in nearby Sherrif Hutton! Good walks immediately from the door.

Hidden Gem

By Steve on 20-Feb-2014

Arrived here for a little getaway and couldn't be more perfect We were greeted by really friendly and polite owners who made us feel very welcome. Place is absolutely fantastic with comfortable bed and amenities, the heated floor is so nice to walk onto on cold mornings. Very close to york town centre and lots of places to visit. Thanks to Richard, Kim and Ruby the dog for making it possible :) Will definitely be back again soon Love Steve & Melissa xx
