Set in the grounds of a stunning manor house in a pretty village close to York, this handsome, charming and romantic cottage makes a lovely retreat for a couple seeking to explore this beautiful area.
Make your great escape to this romantic retreat for two guests and one contented canine at Holtby, 6 miles from York. Relax in the comfort of the stylish upside-down cottage, which is set in the grounds of a country manor house and where you and your four-legged friend are welcome to wander. Venture further out into the spectacular Yorkshire Wolds around you or simply bask in the sunshine of the walled garden, while your contented canine cavorts close by.
Enter at ground-floor level and head upstairs with your holidaying hound to discover the bright and airy, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Pull open the French doors onto the Juliet balcony to let your cheerful chum sniff the fresh Yorkshire air. Prepare dinner in the stylish kitchen then relax together in front of the Smart TV on the comfortable seating. Take your pal for a turn around the garden and then head off to bed for the night. Your bedroom and its en-suite shower room are situated on the ground floor. Dine on your patio on warm days and stretch furry legs by exploring the surrounding grounds, with an orchard and pigs and chickens on-site.
Watch that tail start wagging when you head out on long walks from your cottage. Take a 2-mile circular stroll through the Vale of York, to Dunnington Hall and back. Visit the famous stately home Castle Howard, 12 miles away, where your pup is welcome to explore the grounds with you and can join you in the outdoor seating area of the cafe and help himself from doggy water bowls. There are also lots of walks through the fields and forests of the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty from here. Stroll around the ruins and grounds of Kirkham Priory with your four-legged friend - some 10 miles from the cottage, you can also picnic by the river.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
