The formal dining room features an attractive fireplace; with the morning sun beaming through the window take some time to enjoy a lazy breakfast.

Upstairs the cottage has two bedrooms. The first has a super-king size bed which can also be set up as a twin. The master bedroom has en suite facilities and a double bed. Both bedrooms enjoy views out to the North York Moors landscape. The family bathroom is also upstairs. Sink into the sumptuous roll-top bath each evening and relax.

Local Area

Seaves Cottage Brandsby is set in the picturesque village of Brandsby, less than 15 miles North of York.  The village itself is a charming little place, very typical of this area of Yorkshire.  Perfectly positioned to visit the very best of North Yorkshire, the cottage sits in an area called the Howardian Hills.  Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, this land of lush pastures and woodlands plays host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns.

If you're a bit of a foodie you'll be spoilt for choice here.  There are several excellent gastro-pubs within easy driving distance including the nationally renowned Durham Ox at Crayke, just a few miles away.  The fantastic Star Inn at Harome is also close by.

If walking is your thing there are lots of beautiful walks in the area, some right from the doorstep.   And if you fancy some serious hiking the North York Moors landscape offers some of the best walking in the country.   Take a trip up to the top of the high moorlands around Blakey Ridge and breathe in that clear Yorkshire air.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley is within easy driving distance and is well worth a visit.  If you fancy a little pampering you'll find the Verbena Spa here; perfect for a little me time indulgence!  You're also close to Castle Howard, York and the Yorkshire coast, so lots of choice for day trips.

Brilliant cottage and gorgeous location. The cottage was immaculately clean, very homely and cosy. The extra touches for Christmas made it very special for us. We would definitely stay again, thank you for a wonderful stay.
