Situated in an elevated position in a picturesque village in the beautiful Howardian Hills, this lovely property is perfect for a couple looking to explore the glorious North Yorkshire countryside.
This cosy cottage is perfect for small families or couples and their canine companions seeking a comfortable base in the Howardian Hills. Sniff out relaxing walks through the picturesque village and along peaceful country lanes. Stroll along the unspoilt moors and through tranquil woodland as you discover this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Explore the historic village of Hovingham (3.5 miles) with its bustling market and dog-friendly cafes and pubs, or visit the ancient village of Sheriff Hutton (3 miles) with its ruined castle and medieval church.
Your pretty stone cottage has a homely and welcoming feel, decorated in warm shades with colourful soft furnishings. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a cosy space where your pup is never far from your sight. Prepare delicious dinners in the well-equipped kitchen area to share at the centrally positioned dining table. After a day of exploration, curl up in one of the comfortable chairs for an evening watching your favourite TV programmes while your hound snores at your feet. When it’s time for bed, head upstairs where you will find the two pretty bedrooms, a double and a single, both with stunning views. There is also a shower room. Outside, relax in the small courtyard patio.
Enjoy rural walks straight from the doorstep, through the lush pastures and extensive woodlands of the Howardian Hills. Take the lead with a visit to Castle Howard (5 miles) for leisurely walks through the extensive grounds, stopping at the farm shop where the butcher will provide you with a bone, and at the cafe where doggy ice cream is served. Further afield, explore the quaint streets of York (13.5 miles) where you can walk along the River Ouse, wander through one of the city’s parks, and dine in one of the many dog-friendly cafes and pubs.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
