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

Wonderful Retreat

  • Review Submitted: 11-Dec-2013
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2013
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.

The cottage was absolutley lovely, it had lots of personal touches which made it feel homely. All the information about using the facilities was comprehensive.

The local pub also did an excellent Sunday lunch, which was a bonus.

“Lovely property in perfect location”

  • Review Submitted: 11-Dec-2013

We had a lovely stay at Yew Tree cottage. This quaint little village is a perfect location for exploring North Yorkshire. The Cottage is well equipped, comfy and has all the amenities you would expect for a boutique property.

The local pub is a 15 second walk, you will receive a very friendly welcome and they serve excellent food and drinks.

“Perfect family getaway”

  • Review Submitted: 11-Dec-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
We had a wonderful time with our toddler. The house is ideally positioned for so many family days out, close to several seaside towns and with York nearby, there was plenty to do. The village is quiet, but there was an excellent playground and a lovely looking pub just a few doors down (although we didn't get time to eat or drink there in the end!)
There were several delivery services available to the house, we were happy to have a welcome hamper waiting for us and ordered a fruit and veg box and milk for our stay, which took the pressure off orgainising meals etc.
The house itself was well equipped and had a fully stocked kitchen, including plastic plates and cups etc for our toddler. They seemed to have thought of everything! Readers who have small children will know that it is difficult to completely child proof a house and we did have to keep our eyes pealed as we couldn't put our travel child gate on the bottom of the stairs, although there was already one at the top, and the garden, being multi-levelled was a little unnerving with a toddler running around, but other than that we really couldn't fault it. We are already planning on booking again for next year!

“Wonderful cosy cottage” 5 of 5 stars

  • Review Submitted: 11-Dec-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
The cottage was a wonderful to spend the week in Yorkshire. It is absolutely charming and all the little details make it feel like a home away from home. We took full advantage of the great back garden fro summer eating and BBQs and then on one rainy night we snuggled up in front of he cosy log fire.
The house is fully equipped to meet everyone's needs and the welcome basket was great.....especially the wine and chocolate cake for a first night treat and then goodies for a cooked breakfast the next day.
The pub next door, The Blacksmiths Arms, is excellent with great food and very friendly service.
The only frustration we had was not bing able to connect tot he internet. My relatives came one day and had UK phones and were able to connect in the kitchen but we were unable to connect all week even on the computers upstairs.
Despite that though, we would definitely stay at Yew Tree Cottages again.
Thank you for sharing such a wonderful property with us.

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.
