Immersed in rolling countryside, close to York and on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, this charming holiday cottage was a former farm building and lies adjacent to the owner’s home. There is an abundance of walking and cycling tracks from the doorstep leading through quaint villages, complete with traditional country inns serving local ales and produce. Kirkham Priory is a perfect place to stop and discover the story of a monk’s life, or picnic by the River Derwent under the shadow of the Augustinian ruins. Local attractions include the stately homes and beautiful grounds of Castle Howard and Sledmere, Flamingo Land, Eden Camp (a modern history theme museum), and Yorkshire Lavender Farm. A half hour’s drive leads to the ancient city of York, famous for its iconic minster. From the market town of Pickering, 14 miles, visitors can board the North York Moors steam train and enjoy a scenic trip to Whitby. Miles of sandy beaches can be found along the coastline at the traditional resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
