The Property

A delightful mid-terraced cottage, next door to the owner's home, on the edge of the quiet rural village of Kilham, mid way between Driffield and Bridlington in the Yorkshire Wolds. A brick-built cottage with whitewashed façade and pantile roof, this character Kilham cottage boasts original beamed ceilings and a brick fireplace which houses a cosy woodburning stove. There are two comfortable bedrooms in this Driffield cottage, one with an original brick fireplace and views over open countryside. On the ground floor there is a sitting room with dining area and woodburning stove and a small, well-equipped kitchen which opens on to a patio leading to a lawned rear garden with hot tub and changing facilities. Kilham offers a range of shops including a butcher, Post Office and two pubs. Further afield are the market towns of Driffield, Beverley, Hornsea and Hunmanby, all of which offer shopping and dining facilities, plus Bridlington has award-winning, sandy beaches. RSPB Bempton Cliffs nature reserve is famous for puffins and gannets in the summer and Flamborough has wonderful limestone cliffs on view along the bracing coastal footpaths. The Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route is less than a mile from the cottage, and it's on the Hockney Trail, plus the historic resort of Whitby and the delights of York are both within an easy drive. This Kilham cottage is ideally placed for a varied and interesting holiday.

The surrounding countryside offers excellent walking and cycling opportunities, whilst nearby Driffield provides a variety of shops and tea rooms together with a twice-weekly market.
