Sitting in the tiny and peaceful village of Butterwick, this bolthole is the perfect retreat for walkers and adventurers. Just 10.5 miles below the foot of the North York Moors National Park and 10 miles from the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, head out with ease to explore and discover stunning scenery and lush landscapes. For the foodies who visit, Malton is known as the foodie capital of Yorkshire and lies just 7 miles from your door. Pay this market town a visit and it won’t take you long to hunt out fabulous eateries, cafes, shops selling local produce and, if you time it right, the annual food festival and monthly food market. Returning home from exciting days out, find yourself amongst the traditional charm and character which flows throughout this gorgeous cottage, beautifully complementing its countryside surroundings.
Put your feet up in the lounge where comfortable sofas welcome you to curl up in front of the warming wood burner. A well-stocked bookcase invites you to pick up a holiday read and lose yourself in a story before dinner time. Or switch on the Smart TV, which has Netflix access, and search for something to watch on the screen.
Step through to the kitchen/diner, where smart, sophisticated style is showcased. With plenty of space to rustle up delicious meals, all hands on deck will make light work of meal times in this wonderfully communal room. Equipped with the necessary appliances and storage, throwing together a quick picnic can be done with ease. Dine with loved ones at the table and natter about the day’s happenings before making exciting plans for the day ahead. On arrival, the farmhouse dining table is also a great spot to rifle through the welcome pack which is filled with treats for all to indulge in and enjoy. If days are warm and sunny, leave the kitchen/diner behind and eat alfresco on the patio where you can also savour a morning coffee or a cold tipple before bed.
