This is a spacious and contemporary family cottage surrounded by open wheat fields, nestled within this peaceful village, ideally situated just outside the walled city of York.

Situated on the outskirts of the small, idyllic village of Crockey Hill near York, this attractive property is perfect for families or friends looking to spend quality time together. Its rural position ensures peace and tranquillity, yet you’re only 4.5 miles from the beautiful walled city of York, where you’ll find a wealth of attractions, history and independent shops and eateries. Surrounded on all sides by golden wheat fields and lush green countryside, there are plenty of walks from your doorstep; you may even be lucky enough to spot the local family of deer or other interesting wildlife in its natural habitat.

From the outside, this property is very much the traditional family home with its neat garden path leading you across the immaculately presented front garden to the red brick exterior. Step inside, however, and you’ll appreciate the contemporary décor, which is still in keeping with the house’s rural heritage. A neutral palette accentuates the wooden highlights and odd pops of colour, whilst statement pieces add style and demonstrate the owner’s eye for detail.

After leaving your coats and boots in the hallway, enter the open-plan living space where you and your loved ones can relax in comfort and spend time together. To the front of the property, is the lounge which has a wood burner as its focal point- perfect for snuggling up of an evening- and views out to the front garden. The dining area has plenty of seating for everyone to dine, play games or plan adventures together. To the rear, the well-equipped kitchen has everything you’ll need to rustle up treats for you and your guests, including a large, electric range-oven. The window behind the sink allows views of the rear garden. Across the hallway, there is also a snug if you’d prefer somewhere cosy and private to curl up in front of a roaring fire. Upstairs, there are three gorgeous bedrooms to choose from. Two super-king, zip-and-link rooms which can be made up as twins on request and one double. One room has an en-suite shower room and a family bathroom with a shower over the bath completes the accommodation.

Outside, the enclosed garden wraps itself around the whole house, making it safe and secure for both children and dogs. It also provides a large area for them to stretch their legs and enjoy the fresh, country air. The garden gets sunshine all day, so it’s ideal for alfresco morning coffee, lunch or dinner. You could even light up the BBQ. There is off-road parking for at least one car.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • Sleeps 6 +2 on additional sofa bed (£20 charge for making up the sofa bed - to be paid directly to the owner)
  • 3 bedrooms - 2 super-king-size zip-and-links (which can be made into twins on request at the point of booking) and 1 double
  • 1 bathroom with shower over bath and WC, 1 en-suite shower room with WC and 1 separate WC
  • Electric Range oven and electric hob, fridge with small freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave and Nespresso coffee machine (nespresso vertuo plus pods)
  • Welcome Pack
  • Wood burner (first basket of logs provided)
  • Smart TV with Netflix in lounge and open plan living area
  • Comfortable sofa bed in the lounge
  • 2 dogs welcome
  • Enclosed garden with furniture
  • Off-street parking available

What a brilliant find - a cottage surrounded by fields with visiting hares and deer on a daily basis. The bedrooms were very comfortable; we had a draw straws for which one we had. The kitchen/diner is excellent and the kitchen had every device you would need when on holiday.

Very much enjoyed our 2 weeks and will be back I am sure. Hide

Our weekend break at this clean and tastefully designed cottage was perfect in every way. It's a fantastic place to get away from the world and enjoy total peace and quiet. We were treated to sightings of young deer, baby rabbits, pheasants, partridges and jays on our walk in the local woods.

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.
