The property originally formed the defensive entrance to the village rectory and a courtyard of medieval buildings, the rectory and outbuildings were rebuilt in 1698 and then demolished in the 19th century, but the gatehouse escaped intact. In the village there is a pub and Post Office. The village benefits from its proximity to the A64 and A1/M1 link, offering easy access to Leeds. Nearby Tadcaster has extensive local facilities and the historic city of York is just eight miles away and offers many art galleries and museums to explore, along with racing at York Racecourse. Selby Abbey, Byland Abbey, Castle Howard, Harewood House, Bolton Castle, Hovingham Hall, Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal in Ripon are fantastic historical houses and gardens which are well worth a visit.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
