Stunning brick cottage offering a home from home for up to four, sitting behind a beautiful Georgian manor in the centre of a charming Yorkshire Wold's village, boasting scenic walks and a welcoming country pub.

Accessed through an arched gateway in a walled garden, this magical two-bedroom holiday cottage set in a pretty village just 15 minutes from central York. Secluded, romantic and gorgeous; the perfect luxury Yorkshire cottage for couples and small families alike.

Evoking a distinctive Alice in Wonderland-style entrance to the property, it promises and delivers something special. A stunning brick cottage, it sits behind a beautiful Georgian-era manor house in the centre of a charming Yorkshire Wold's village. The cottage has a lovely aspect looking out onto towards the gardens and orchard of the manor house.

Step inside to discover a stylish open plan living space with the kitchen to your right and the living area to your left. The hand-crafted kitchen is really well proportioned and comes complete with everything you would expect of a cottage of this quality. There's a dishwasher, large fridge-freezer and a range cooker with gas hob. There's also a washing machine here too and a handy WC with underfloor heating. The handsome dining table nestles comfortably by the stairs. Seating up to four guests in comfort, it's a very pleasant spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Make your way on over to the spacious living area. Plenty of room for you to spread out and relax. Fire up the wood burner and choose the latest movie on the TV. Or just put your feet up and indulge in a glossy magazine with a nice cup of tea. Wi-Fi is included too if you want to catch up with your world.

Both bedrooms in this lovely cottage near York are set upstairs. The master is a fabulous bedroom with double aspect views across the gardens and grounds. There is a stunning double height arched window to enjoy and a beautiful cast iron king-size bed too. The second bedroom is just along the landing, an adorable twin room which the owner will make up as a super-king or twin depending on your preferences. Kids will also love the rabbit night-light in here. The views from this room are simply fantastic. The family bathroom sits between the two, a real jaw-dropper with its huge free-standing bath and large walk-in shower. There's a Smart mirror which has a light responsive to touch and plenty of natural light streaming in from the skylights. It's the perfect bathroom to take your time in. Enjoy a long lazy soak after a day's shopping in York.

Outside the cottage really lives up to its name. Settle down on the completely private patio and enjoy lunch al fresco, with only the sound of birds to disturb you. The extensive grounds of the main house are available for your use and include a large garden and lawn, an orchard and a treehouse for little ones to explore. There are also rare-breed pigs and chickens to discover.

Set in the village of Holtby, a charming little village in the Yorkshire Wolds less than 15 minutes from Central York. You have the best of both worlds here, the delightful small village atmosphere of old Yorkshire twinned with the vibrant city of York.

The jewel in North Yorkshire's crown, we think York is one of the best visitor destinations in England. But don't just take our word for it. York (6 miles) is a favourite amongst even the most seasoned of travellers. Make your way around its medieval cobbled streets and discover its many shops, cafes and restaurants. Holtby is an ideal base from which to explore all that this area has to offer. Still a relatively quiet location in terms of tourism, the Yorkshire Wolds are a range of beautiful low rolling hills rising from the River Humber. The gentle nature of the countryside here makes it an excellent location for walking and cycling. The Wolds are home to many historical homes and religious sites, as well as one of Yorkshire's largest lavender gardens.

Great place to stay, everything you need and more provided. Welcome provisions and homemade scones and jam on arrival. Centrally situated, we used the nearby park and ride to visit York, but also drove to the coast. Would highly recommend.

A most delightful and comfortable cottage. Extremely well equipped and a lovely treat waiting for us with a bottle of wine, cake and bread. Fantastic location so close to York and the park and ride was a great solution to finding car parks. Loved the piggies and our dog loved the orchard to run around in.
