About Yew Tree Cottage

Set in a peaceful 100-acre private estate, Yew Tree Cottage is a charming 1-bedroom country cottage with elegant interiors and an idyllic rural riverside location.

This cottage has everything you could need for a relaxing break in this gorgeous part of Yorkshire. It's beautifully furnished and set betwixt the two grand Yorkshire Estates of Sandhall and Saltmarshe. The perfect escape to the country!

Step inside to discover a handsome entrance hall boasting warm oak flooring underfoot. At the heart of the cottage is a lovely living / dining room with pretty pastel tones and a wood-burning fire to make things nice and cosy. Take your pick from a choice of comfortable seating and settle down in front of the wall-mounted TV with DVD player. There's a side table and chair which can double up as a desk if you can't bear to leave your laptop behind or want to write out some postcards to friends.

Oak wood flooring continues from the living area into the lovely country kitchen next door where there are lots of chic white units around this square shaped room. You'll also find plenty of space on the sleek black worktops to chop, grind, and mix, whether you are creating a light picnic lunch or a 3-course gourmet dinner! Appliances available within this spacious family kitchen include a gas hob and oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave plus an assortment of other pots, pans and utensils.

Dining is at the drop leaf circular dining table and the comfortable high backed chairs mean you can linger and chat a while after dinner.

There is one lovely bedroom in Yew Tree Cottage, a light and bright room with neutral carpets and cream walls. The bedroom has a super-king sized bed which can also be set up as two singles if you prefer. A bathroom next door with a walk-in shower means you can enjoy a refreshing morning shower before striking out for a day exploring the area. There's also a separate bath if you fancy a long hot soak in the evening..

Outside Yew Tree Cottage enjoys a garden with a decked patio area. A bistro table and chairs are available so can make the most of your lovely location and eat al fresco when the weather is nice. A BBQ is provided too.

Beyond the garden, you'll find tranquil private land and lovely riverside walks along the River Ouse. Heavenly!

Local Area

Yew Tree Cottage has a beautiful rural location set close to 100 acres of private park and farmland between the River Ouse and wood in Howdenshire. There are lots of gorgeous river and parkland walks from the doorstep and you are surrounded by lush green landscapes at every turn. The charming market town of Howden is close by with its ancient streets, lovely shops, cafes, wine bars, Heritage Centre and historical buildings to explore. See if you can spot the tower of Howden Minster from the cottage.

Set right by the river, you can watch the tall masts of ships passing by on their way up the river to Goole. It's so peaceful here you just won't want to leave. There are wide paths for walkers/riders round the park, we recommend the river walk along to Blacktoft to the Hope and Anchor pub for a bite of lunch, and there are lots more walks to try.

There are lots of lovely country pubs in the area, including another great option within walking distance of the cottage, The Bricklayer Arms at Laxton. And if you feel like dining in we recommend the short trip to Kitchen in Howden.  Stock up on the finest Yorkshire produce here, from excellent home-made bread to the most amazing pies and cakes.  While you're there it would be a shame not to stop and enjoy a cup of tea and something sweet!

Howden is an ideal base from which to explore all that this area of Yorkshire has to offer.  You are perfectly placed to explore York, the Wolds to the East and the North York Moors to the North. The beautiful city of Beverley is just half an hour's drive from the cottage.  Explore the stunning Beverley Minster before indulging in a spot of shopping around its lively cobbled squares. 

And further East, get to know the gorgeous Yorkshire Wolds, a range of low rolling hills rising from the river Humber and sweeping along to the stunning cliffs at Flamborough Head.  This landscape was an inspiration to David Hockney with much of his work based on the countryside here. You can follow the Hockney Trail to discover the setting of some his more famous works. Keen golfers will enjoy the local course just 5 miles away and the gentle nature of the countryside here makes it an excellent location for walking and cycling.

The wolds are also home to many historical homes and religious sites as well as one of Yorkshire's largest lavender gardens. And for kids there are heaps of fantastic attractions nearby (indoor and out) including the excellent Yorkshire Wildlife Park and The Deep in Hull. Nearby Hull is also the 2017 UK City of Culture and offers much to the discerning visitor in terms of the Arts and other attraction. Williams Den at North Cave is a new childrens play adventure park, offering both inside and outside activities for children aged 4-12.

If you enjoy a spot of twitching you're in heaven here with many excellent bird watching sites within easy reach. Try North Cave Wetlands, The Delph, Saltmarshe and Ferrybridge for starters. And if you want to see some Puffins and Gannets making their home on the cliffs take a drive over to the coast and marvel at the Bempton Cliffs. 

The North York Moors and beautiful medieval City of York are also all within easy reach and make for a great day trip.
