About the property

One bed cottage easy access to York and host of exciting surroundings

Overlooking a delightful pond and privately situated within the owner’s grounds, Waterside Cottage provides an ideal base for a relaxing holiday with its open plan, contemporary interiors and King size bed. Numerous walking and cycling trails can be found in the surrounding area of the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and close by are several renowned country pubs where visitors can sample real ales and generous Yorkshire hospitality or enjoy superb Indian cuisine at the Jinnah restaurant. Castle Howard is just four miles away, a magnificent 18th century historic house(film and TV location for Brideshead) with art collections, with concerts and a range of interesting events,woodland and riverside walks, restaurant and farm shop. The ancient city of York (11 miles) is easily accessible and here visitors can wander along the cobbled streets, admire the ancient architecture,walk along the city walls and cruise along the River Ouse. Visit the beautiful minster, the National Railway Museum and the Viking Centre or just enjoy al fresco dining by the riverside and watch the world go by. York is a shopper’s paradise with an abundance of independent shops and out of town shopping at Monks Cross, The Vangarde and the Designer Outlet. It is also home to an exciting racecourse at the Knavesmire.Visit abbey ruins at Kirkham Priory and Rievaulx, and National Trust houses at Beningbrough and Nunnington Hall or explore the quaint market towns of Malton, Easingwold and Helmsley. The North Yorkshire Moors, The Dales and the traditional coastal towns of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey are all within an hour’s drive. Good public transport on hand.

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A very lovely and spotless cottage in a beautiful part of the country and situated in well kept grounds. It was ideally located for York and all the other places we wanted to visit. Andrew was very helpful at all times and gave us some good tips for places to visit - Goathland and Whitby being the two of them. I would recommend to others!

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so lovely it feels like your at home. It was very clean inside with beautiful surroundings outside and had all the necessary things you would expect. There are a few takeaways nearby plus the cottage is only 15 mins drive from York. All in all the stay was wonderful we can't fault it and will definitely be back.
