A real labour of love 16th-century farmhouse set within the rolling countryside, well-suited to visit the medieval town of York and its numerous attractions; a perfect town and country retreat.

Enjoy a stay at this stunning two-bedroom luxury holiday cottage set within the grounds of a 16th century farmhouse near York. This gorgeous property has the wow factor in every room, and with its setting in beautiful grounds with uninterrupted countryside all around, this is true holiday perfection.

This holiday cottage has been a real labour of love by its owners, something which is abundantly evident throughout the whole property with its bespoke furniture and effortless style. Step in to discover a dramatic hallway boasting beautiful quarry tiles and a fabulous stairway. This hall leads directly through to the main living area in the cottage, a bright and welcoming open-plan space housing the kitchen, dining area and lounge. As an added little treat, you'll arrive to a generous welcome hamper including homemade bread, cakes and spa products.

The lounge is home to comfy seating, perfect for stretching out on for those cosy movie nights in, and this room comes equipped with a Smart TV, sound system and Wi-Fi. Underfloor heating throughout ensures you are nice and toasty whatever the weather.

In the beautiful kitchen a dishwasher is provided as well as a washing machine if needed. The cupboards are stocked with glassware, crockery and everything you'll need to rustle up a hearty dinner. Sitting beside the kitchen you'll find the charming dining area bathed in sunlight that streams in through the windows, it's a lovely spot for dining at any time of day.

Both bedrooms in this luxury cottage are on ground level and both come equipped with TVs. The generous master bedroom has a stunning queen-size bed; a heavenly place to wake up each morning. In the corner of this room you'll find a fabulous copper bath just calling out for long candlelit soaks. The second bedroom is equally charming, with its country-chic style.

This lovely cottage is set in the village of Ellerton, a charming little village less than 15 miles from 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. Make your way around its medieval cobbled streets and discover its many shops, cafes and restaurants.

Ellerton is an ideal base from which to explore the Yorkshire Wolds. Still a relatively quiet location in terms of tourism, the Yorkshire Wolds are a range of beautiful low rolling hills rising from the Humber River and sweeping along to the stunning cliffs at Flamborough Head, peppered with countless pretty villages and towns. A favourite with David Hockney, it inspired many of his greatest works including 'Bigger Trees Near Warter’.

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.

You are also well-placed to discover the stunning North York Moors, this dramatic landscape of heather and open moorland is around 25 miles away. Somewhat smaller than the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors still cover an area of almost 600 square miles and like the Dales you can easily find yourself miles from anywhere relatively quickly. Yet there is something distinctly more civilised and less remote about the Moors. In place of harsh limestone and dramatic peaks you'll find gentle rolling hills of heather, ancient woodland and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. There is a sense of wilderness, particularly on top of the high central moorlands, but it’s cast in comforting soft focus.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Perfect for peace and quiet but only a short drive into the center of York (35 mins to parked in the train station). The cottage is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Highly recommended and will definitely use it as a base for York again.

A beautiful cottage in a very peaceful location. Very cosy and warm. Ideal for visiting the local area - York, Beverley, Castle Howard. Plenty of local pubs within a 10 - 15 minute drive serving good food. Village pub but only serves drinks.

Beautiful cottage, located in a quiet rural area. You do need a car. Absolutely ideal for those that need easy access (I am disabled), especially the bathroom. Very well located for visiting York, and only an hour from the seaside too. You will be made to feel very welcome by the owner, and also her very well behaved dogs
