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.

The owner also offers an optional breakfast hamper option packed with locally sourced produce.

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.

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.

This property is personally managed by Phil.

Harrys Stable is superbly equipped and well appointed. The furniture is perfect for a barn conversion and the huge copper bath in the master bedroom is fantastic. The underfloor heating meant that the whole place was warm and cosy. It is quite remote and York is a bit of a drive BUT don't let that put you off. You can't have quiet and peaceful and Read morebe central York!! The 4 of us - all adults - had a relaxing time. One of our party has mobility issues so the walk in shower and all on one floor was perfect. We didn't really use the mezzanine floor at all but a quick look showed that, if you had teenagers with you it would be perfect for them to get away from the adults and also not annoy them!!!. I suppose the question is "would I recommend Harrys Stable" the answer is absolutely and without doubt. Hide

A beautiful cottage, thats sits very well within private land. Well thought out and had more than expected for a holiday cottage, such as bathrobes, white towelling slippers and toiletries. Very well positioned for local villages and restaurants and York is a 30 minute trip. Would love to stay again.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
