About The Coach House

The Coach House is a stunning 4-bedroom holiday home near Castle Howard, just a few miles North of York. Grand and gorgeous in every way, it is the perfect retreat for family and friends to get together and share some precious time. Throw in bags of space, acres of private grounds (complete with your own tennis court), idyllic location and a village pub within walking distance, and we just may have the perfect large holiday cottage!

This is a very special property, one that has that illusive quality of luxury and comfort so that you feel special but completely at home from the moment you walk through the door…

The generous kitchen / dining room is the heart of this large luxury cottage in North Yorkshire. Step into a bright and welcoming space featuring a huge kitchen island, informal dining table and AGA keeping everything nice and toasty. What better place to gather each morning for a family breakfast or to pop open a bottle of bubbly in the evenings. The Coach House also boasts a gorgeous large formal dining room for those special occasions and a handy downstairs Cloakroom.

Next door to the kitchen you’ll find the house snug. With its cosy wood-burner and relaxed vibe it’s the perfect spot to settle down with a nice glass of red when all the kids are in bed. Or if you have older kids in tow they’ll love having their own space while you catch up with the grown-ups in the elegant sitting room at the end of the hall. This fabulous room looks directly out onto the formal gardens through patio doors, just waiting to be thrown open in the warmer months.

All of the bedrooms in The Coach House are upstairs. The first is a breath-taking master bedroom which enjoys the same views out to the formal gardens and meadow beyond. Enjoy the luxury of space in one of the largest bedrooms in our collection. This stunning room also has a walk-in dressing room and large en suite with his ‘n her sinks and contemporary shower.

The second bedroom is a charming twin room, again a generous size and looking out towards the gardens. It’s perfect for children or those who prefer their own space at night. The third room has a timeless appeal with its classic iron bedstead and antique furniture. This room also has an en suite bathroom complete with a bath and shower overhead. The 4th bedroom is set in the eaves of the house. Again with plenty of space this bedroom has a king-size zip & link bed, so can be set up as twins or a double to suit.

There is also a family bathroom up here. Echoing the same contemporary stylish theme as the rest of the house you’ll find a show-stopper roll-top bath and a walk-in shower to enjoy…

Outside this large luxury cottage is no less impressive. Set in several acres of completely private grounds, there is a lovely formal garden immediately in front of the house, leading on to a meadow beyond. At the bottom of the garden you’ll find a well-maintained tennis court, rackets and balls provided. Settle down to an afternoon G & T in the sun while the kids run around happily and safely.

There is a security deposit payable for this cottage. To book just check the Availability tab above or give us a call on 0877 376 6276 and we'll be delighted to help!

Local Area

The Coach House is set in Foston, a sleepy little hamlet just 20 minutes from central York. This area of the North York Moors is known as the Howardian Hills. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the southern Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns. The landscape is particularly well suited to cyclists and walkers.

Take the short drive into York to explore this gem of a medieval city. Walk the historic walls, take a boat trip along the river, indulge in a fat rascal at Betty’s Tearooms. And if you have time, have a wander around its many independent shops and boutiques.

Castle Howard is an absolute must during your stay at The Coach House. The wonderful series Brideshead Revisited, and now lavish film production, was filmed on location here. This quintessentially English tale of forbidden love and loss of innocence set pre WW11 has the perfect backdrop in this magnificent house and gardens. And when you have soaked in all this glamour make a stop at the fantastic farm shop on the way home to pick up the finest Yorkshire produce for dinner.

The handsome town of Malton is just a few miles away featuring a traditional market square and lots of cafes, pubs and restaurants. If you feel like something really special James Martin’s fine-dining restaurant at The Talbot Hotel is also here. A few miles further takes you to the town of Pickering. You can catch a steam train from here taking you all the way to Whitby via some picture-postcard villages and stunning scenery. Pickering itself makes for a nice afternoon’s mosey with its pretty houses, shops and tea-rooms.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley is also close by and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering you’ll find a fantastic day Spa here; the Verbena Spa. Perfect for a little me time indulgence! There is a theme park and zoo at Flamingoland just a few miles away [www.flamingoland.co.uk] and Eden Camp, a fascinating modern history museum, is within easy driving distance to the cottage. And with the North York Moors and Yorkshire Coast all within close reach there are countless options for day trips.

Lastly, if you’re a bit of a foodie, there are several fantastic places near The Coach House to try, in fact two restaurants with Michelin stars within half an hour’s drive. And of course York is brimming with excellent eateries at every turn. There's also a pub within walking distance to the house which serves decent pub grub.

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was stunning. Exceptionally clean. The downstairs bathrooms lock was broken but that is it's only fault. Very clear instructions of what to do. The owner also allowed me to check in 1 hour earlier was was very helpful. I would be keen to return again.

We had a wonderful stay at the Coach House; it is a beautiful property in a great location.
It is well equipped (though I was tempted to reorganise some of the cupboards....some items weren't very conveniently sited!!) spacious and comfortable.

Small niggles prevented me from giving 10s but we would definitely visit again. Even the weather was amazing, so we were able to make full use of the lovely garden and tennis court. There is so much to do nearby (and the farm shop at Castle Howard is very handy). The Guest book was full so we were unable to leave a message when we left....we would have said we loved it - and thank you!

Absolutely stunning would be an understatement - it is just as the pictures show and everything was 5*+ and of the best quality. The attention to detail was excellent and the provision of dvd's, books and magazines ensured that it was a home from home - there was so much within the house and grounds that it would be easy to miss out on the fantastic location - so close to both York and the Moors.
