Overview

About the property

Two bedrooms and one bathroom. Designated parking for two vehicles. Sleeps four.

This pretty stone cottage is situated in the Castle Howard Estate village of Coneysthorpe. With two cosy wood burning stoves, furnished with items from Castle Howard itself, and carefully chosen modern furnishings, the cottage is perfectly appointed. A picturesque garden with trickling stream is the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the region.

The delightful village of Coneysthorpe on the Castle Howard Estate sits at the heart of the Howardian Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Perfectly placed in rural North Yorkshire; the North York Moors National Park, Yorkshire Coast and medieval city of York are all easily accessible. Castle Howard, which is just a stone's throw from the village, is one of Britain's finest stately homes and was built in the 18th century by Sir John Vanbrugh. The nearby market town of Malton boasts an impressive array of independent food outlets, cafes, restaurants and shops with popular food markets taking place each month. The Howardian Hills and North York Moors offer endless footpaths and bridleways and are popular with cyclists, walkers and nature lovers. The rugged Yorkshire Coast includes towns such as Whitby and Scarborough as well as smaller fishing villages including Sandsend and Robin Hood's Bay, all within an hours drive. The city of York is just 15 miles away and offers many attractions including museums, galleries, river cruises, York Minster, the medieval walls and a huge variety of shop and restaurants.

Christmas at Castle Howard

Each year Castle Howard is transformed when the house is hand decorated for the festive season.

Open daily from Saturday 18 November to Saturday 23 December.

Angelic imagery found in historic artworks will provide heavenly inspiration for this year’s festive spectacular at Castle Howard. ‘Angels on High’ will watch over visitors experiencing the North Yorkshire stately home’s elaborate Christmas decorations.

Bringing the angelic theatre to Castle Howard are creative producer and co-director of Oxford Shakespeare Company and Lamplighter Drama, Charlotte Lloyd Webber, and award-winning Canadian theatre designer, Bretta Gerecke. They will join the Howard family and site team to transform the house into a remarkable Christmas experience that feels like a theatre performance – but without live performers.

Seasonal favourites including live music, a cosy Christmas market in the courtyard, audiences with father Christmas and twilight visits return in 2017, visit our website What's On pages for more information.
