A lovely cottage with attention to detail, located in a village close to Stamford Bridge. This charming property offers the perfect getaway with much to explore, from York to the North Yorkshire Moors.
Nestled in the Yorkshire Wolds, within the charming village of High Catton, this cottage offers the perfect rural retreat for those looking to explore Yorkshire’s beautiful rolling hills and delightful market towns. Situated 9.5 miles east of the ancient, walled city of York, its many attractions are only a short drive or bus journey away. However, the picturesque village of Stamford Bridge (1.5 miles) and the market town of Pocklington (8.5 miles) are a little less busy and offer guests a range of shops and eateries. The cottage itself has been lovingly decorated in a vintage, English-cottage style to create a homely feel for its guests. The quirky touches here and there add plenty of character, as do the original features. Living next door, the owners are on hand should you have any questions, but they are keen to ensure guests have privacy during their stay. If you’re lucky, you may find a few treats to welcome you to the house.
On entering the house, you will find the bright and airy, yet cosy, lounge on your right. The sofas provide the ideal place to rest your weary legs at the end of a busy day whilst you snuggle up in front of the roaring wood burner.
Bright and spacious, the separate dining room also has a wood burner and leads into the inviting kitchen with its upcycled, country-cottage furniture and interesting artwork. From here, you can access the delightful conservatory with its solid walls protecting you from the midday sun and the high windows allowing light to flood in.
Upstairs, there are three captivating bedrooms (a double, a twin and a single), each with their own unique features, such as crocheted blankets, rugs and ornaments, but all inviting and restful. Completing this floor is a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.
On the second floor, there is a fantastic games room with a small pool table, a mini-football table and a variety of games, in addition to a sofa; so, when the children need some downtime, they’ll have their own space to escape to.
Across the shared driveway and down a few steps, you will come to your own private, enclosed garden complete with a BBQ and dining furniture for the ultimate al fresco eating experience in the Yorkshire sunshine. Younger children will also be happy as they can play on the swing and slide and explore the Wendy house. There is off-road parking for two cars and a bike store is available.
