A contemporary one bed roomed apartment which is spacious and fully self contained on the ground floor of a detached annexe which sits within a working farm 300 feet above the city of York on a wooded hillside that lies between two castles. The dramatic ruins of King Richard III’s Sheriff Hutton Castle and the Baroque majesty of Castle Howard (famous as the location for the film and TV series Brideshead Revisited). Off the beaten track with big views over the Yorkshire Wolds & the Vale Of York, yet just 12 miles away from the ancient walled city of York. Our guests say they really love the peace and quiet here after a days sightseeing in York the Moors or the coast. The apartment has marble tiled floors with under floor heating for a very cosy winter break or a cool summer holiday. Bring along your walking boots or If you have one, bring your dog/s along too as we are pet friendly and surrounded by tranquil traffic free woods and fields to walk in. The walks to and around Castle Howard are particularly enjoyable. There is a charge of just £15 per dog stay.

A special place
The cottage is spacious, well-situated, and impeccably clean. Richard is the ideal host — there when he’s needed and not when he’s not. There are sheep across one fence, fields across the others, and all around the gorgeous landscape of the Yorkshire moors.
i would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys the peace and listening to the sound of the birds in the tree's the weather was very foggy and misty when we stayed however our two little dogs didn't seem to mind they loved the freedom of the whole garden. i would certainly be booking again the owner's richard and kim are a nice couple who are very friendly and make you feel very welcome.
Arrived here for a little getaway and couldn't be more perfect
We were greeted by really friendly and polite owners who made us feel very welcome.
Place is absolutely fantastic with comfortable bed and amenities, the heated floor is so nice to walk onto on cold mornings. Very close to york town centre and lots of places to visit.
Thanks to Richard, Kim and Ruby the dog for making it possible :)
Will definitely be back again soon
