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.
If you feel like venturing out of Seaves Cottage Brandsby you'll find a pretty walled courtyard leading to the duck pond beyond.
