About Alec Welham

We moved to Long Marston in late spring 2014 to pursue a self-sufficient lifestyle in the country. As avid gardeners we grow as much fruit and veg' as we can fit on the land. We have won many awards for our vegetables including the National Vegetable Society Championships at Harrogate in September 2015 and 2016.

We also have hand- reared ducks, chickens and turkeys in our garden.

Alec Welham purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Alec Welham chose York

The Cottage is set in beautiful rural surroundings in the heart of North Yorkshire just 6 miles from the City of York.

Built on the historic site of the Battle of Marston Moor with rolling countryside in every direction.

The main cottage originally dates back to 1644 and maintains the original charm of this period. Although the self-contained apartment was built as part of an extension centuries later, its features sympathetically reflect the style of the house.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is ideally situated in the small village of Long Marston, 5 miles from the A1 M and the historic market town of Wetherby.

York is accessible within a 15 minute drive, or a 20 minute bus journey will take you to York train station and the City Centre.

Harrogate is just a 25 minute car journey, famous for its Victoria architecture, Roman baths, and Betty’s Tea Rooms.

Knaresborough is also just a 15 minute car journey to explore the Castle, Mother Shiptons cave, or take a row boat along the river.

Long Marston Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was exceptional and in a brilliant location, steeped in history. The decor was very good and the furnishings were very comfortable. Alec & Christine have done themselves proud with this holiday let and I would be happy to stay there again in the future and recommend it to family and friends. The flat had everything that you would want for a holiday stay and I certainly was not disappointed. 10/10 for me.

a VERY VERY tired self catering apartment. Needs a good make over.

  • 1 of 5

While we were aware that the T.V. was small. In this day and age something bigger than a 17 inch screen would be I feel most welcome. The seating accommodation needs an upgrade, very lumpy which suggest the springs in the seats have broken. The bed in the bedroom is NOT a double bed, only a 3/4 bed. This need to be stated in the write up of the property. All in all a disappointing week's stay.

Battle of Marston Moor

  • 5 of 5

Free eggs. Everything supplied. Some have commented on the decoration but it is not an issue as the property is spotless. If you have a white dog be prepared to hoover as the lounge carpet is dark blue.It might be nice if there was a little more outside area
