Situated in an elevated position in a picturesque village in the beautiful Howardian Hills, this lovely property is perfect for a couple looking to explore the glorious North Yorkshire countryside.
Tucked away in the rolling Howardian Hills just 14.5 miles north of York, this cosy country retreat makes the most of the gorgeous Yorkshire countryside from the doorstep. Perfect for couples and small families looking to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Set in an elevated position within a row of charming stone cottages, this handsome two-bedroom property boasts far-reaching views and contemporary elegant interiors. Step inside to discover an open-plan living space home to the lounge, kitchen and dining area. All of the soft furnishings including the cushions and lampshades have been hand-stitched by a local craftsman and the walls feature original art by an award-winning artist.
The living room with its statement panelled wall offers plenty of options for relaxing, with two armchairs and a comfy sofa to choose from. The flame-effect electric fire keeps everything nice and toasty in the evening and provides a pleasant warm glow to curl up by. The Smart TV with DVD is perfect if you want to bring along some of your favourite movies. There's also a selection of DVDs to choose from at the cottage along with some books and games for off-line entertainment.
Make your way on through to the shaker-style kitchen with its attractive units and chunky wooden work-top. You'll find all the usual mod-cons including a dishwasher, fridge and oven, with a further cupboard under the stairs housing a washing machine and freezer. The dining table sits right beside the kitchen. Arrive to find a welcome hamper from the local deli to enjoy.
Both bedrooms in the cottage are upstairs. The main bedroom sits at the front of the house and enjoys those glorious views across the fields. The double bed in here features a velvet headboard (again hand-stitched), which is complemented with crisp sheets and tartan cushions. The second bedroom is to the rear of the cottage and has a full-size single bed. There are more stunning views from this bedroom in the opposite direction, right across to the Vale of York. The family bathroom is also upstairs. We love the large walk-in shower and a heated towel rail is a welcome feature.
Outside the cottage to the front, you will find off-road parking and excellent views. There is also a small courtyard patio to the rear, a real sun trap in the warmer months and perfect for an afternoon tipple.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
