STUNNING SELF CATERING 1750 FARMHOUSE BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED FOR A PERFECT GETAWAY

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in York - Yew Tree Cottage

Spacious 3 bed luxury cottage, secluded garden, free wifi, family friendly

Nestled in spacious grounds yet in the centre of a picturesque village, Yew Tree Cottage enjoys a picture-perfect historic cottage exterior but also benefits from a sophisticated, sensitive, yet contemporary interior, and finally manages to be both luxurious for grown-ups and fun for little ones heavenly.

This delightful, 3-bedroom, country retreat has all the creature comforts guests will need, from roaring fires and comfy beds to thoughtful baby gear (if needed), a pretty enclosed garden and a friendly pub with a good reputation for food just a few yards away.

Kirkham Priory is close by and Castle Howard is just 5 miles away. York is a 20-minute drive and the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes are easily accessible.

Upon arrival, enjoy your welcome hamper to get you started. You'll find fresh bread, butter, milk, eggs and a complimentary bottle of wine. The local milk-man can also deliver the weekend papers to your door.

Things to see and do: The country around Yew Tree Cottage is studded with places to visit and things to do. Here are a few of our favourites within easy reach of the cottage: p

b Sailors,Pirates & Smugglers /b Visiting the fishing ports of Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay is like stepping back in time. p

b Ghostly & Ghastly. /b York is a great place to sample the grimmer side of North Yorkshire's past - the historic centre of town is the most haunted in England. And don't forget Whitby, the place where Bram Stoker wrote 'Dracula' p

b Knights, Monks, Kings and Castles. /b Scarborough's medievel castle is a dramatic sight; Helmsley and Pickering castles both have great histories. The ruin of Kirkham Priory is walking distance p

Trains, Planes and War. Ride the wonderful steam trains into the North Yorkshire Moors. Visit Eden Camp, the wartime prison and Yorkshire Air Museum for spectaular planes

Guestbook comments from the manager
Home from home in a stunning location with a cracking pub which does take away gastro style dinners just 20 yards from the house.



The cottage was immaculate and we had a thoroughly relaxing time. Location was also perfect for travelling into locality and also a little further into York.



Looking forward to staying again soon.

Nestling deep in the Ryedale countryside, just a stone’s throw from Kirkham Priory, Westow is a pleasant village located just 4 miles south of Malton and 12 miles from the historical city of York. Castle Howard is just down the road, the river Derwent is a beautiful spot for fishing, or walking, and the moors and coast are a fantastic day trip.

Much of the village, including Yew Tree Cottage is designated a conservation area, in recognition of the need to preserve the attractiveness of the settlement as its located in the Howardian Hills; an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Step out in to the night and due to no street lights, you'll see a fantastic view of the evening sky. In the morning wake up to fresh milk bottles delivered to your door.

The village has a well-regarded pub called the Blacksmith Arms and a wide range of local amenities are available in the market town of Malton.
