Set in a peaceful location overlooking the village brook, this well-presented Bishop Wilton cottage is ideally placed for those wishing to explore the nearby bustling market towns and the many attractions that York has to offer.

With superb attention to detail, this Bishop Wilton cottage offers upside down accommodation with three tasteful bedrooms on the ground floor and a modern bathroom.

The spacious open plan living area in this Bishop Wilton cottage is light and airy with a high-pitched roof, exposed timbers and large feature windows.

Well-equipped and comfortable, this Bishop Wilton cottage boasts a stylish kitchen and contemporary furnishings.

Exterior steps lead down from the living area to a small walled courtyard, a sheltered spot to enjoy a morning coffee or an afternoon barbecue.

The surrounding open countryside offers walking opportunities, including the long distance trails of the Wolds and Minster Way.

For the less energetic, Stamford Bridge, Pocklington and Malton are well worth visiting with their weekly market days, independent retailers, art galleries and tea rooms.
