This elegant cottage has been thoughtfully designed and furnished to create a wonderful retreat for couples and small families. It is set in the heart of the delightful village of Sherriff Hutton, boasting two country pubs, a lovely coffee shop/deli, a village shop and magnificent castle ruins, once home to Richard III. Situated just 11 miles from the historic city of York, walk the city walls and cobbled streets before enjoying the range of independent shops and cafes on offer. For keen walkers and cyclists, there is a great selection of picturesque routes nearby as well as the stunning Howardian Hills only 2 miles away.

Other nearby market towns are Malton (10 miles) and Helmsley (15 miles).

A few stone steps lead up to this gorgeous, whitewashed cottage with cosy furnishings and elegant touches to help you enjoy your stay. Hang up your coats and leave your walking boots in the hallway before heading through to the beautifully presented lounge. Sit back and relax on the comfortable seating in front of the wood burner after a day exploring this wonderful area and watch your favourite movie on the Smart TV. The kitchen/diner is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a range of tasty meals and is filled with lots of natural light from the patio doors which open out onto the garden. When it's time to retire for the evening, head upstairs into the first of two beautiful bedrooms; a king-size with hidden bespoke wardrobes in the panelling and plush furnishings that are sure to allow for an excellent night’s sleep. Along the corridor, you will find the second bedroom, with 2'6" single beds which can be made into a king-size bed on request, and a lovely bright shower room with underfloor heating.

Beautiful bed , so comfortable excellent linen , the electric blanket was on for us in arrival , as the cottage was very cold , but the log fire once on was exceptional , parking is a real problem , we were very tightly parked in the cut out , but some person parked on the road opposite , on the last morning a truck came down we had to move the carRead more out to let him pass . Very tricky steps up the cottage with a handrail only half way up , we enjoyed the cottage , nice places to go around about . Hide

A beautifully comfortable cottage where the owners seem to have thought of everything you could need. It was decorated attractively for Christmas and with an extremely generous welcome pack as well as plenty of information about the cottage and surrounding areas I would happily recommend it to family and friends

We had a lovely stay at this cottage. The location was ideal (20-25mins) into the centre of York. The cottage was clean and provided everything we needed for our weekend away! The log burner was a perfect addition in winter. We would definatly stay again!

The cottage was beautiful, very welcoming, and a joy to stay there. The beds were very comfortable and a real treat to relax into at the end of a full day. Would recommend as a good starting point to get to other areas.

The cottage was fine and the locals really friendly. We went to the Sunday market in the Village Hall with some good food and craft stalls . It's a good centre for visiting the local attractions. We really enjoyed Breezy Knees Gardens on their last week of opening this year.
