    We had a great week staying in this luxurious cottage. It’s a farm renovation done to the highest standard. The owners live next door in the other part of the renovation. Every detail has been considered. Comfortable furniture, comfortable beds with quality linen and the best towels. There is a full kitchen complete with dishwasher and washing machine. There is a wood burner but only managed to use it a couple of times as we were fortunate to have mild weather. The underfloor heating keeps the cottage cosy. On arrival there was milk, bread, tea, coffee and a cake - much needed after a long journey. We enjoyed York, the North Yorkshire Moors and Scarborough and Whitby. No visit would be complete without a steam train trip on the NYM Railway - we were lucky to visit during a steam gala. Would love to return one day.

The small, peaceful village of Brandsby lies in the Vale of York, surrounded by the beautiful, rolling countryside of the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Close by is Crayke with an award winning gastro pub, whilst nearby Stillington provides a local shop, a Post Office, and three dining pubs, and the market town of Easingwold offers all the usual amenities, including a traditional Friday market. Brandsby is handily placed for touring, with the famous City of York only 12 miles away, whilst the North York Moors and East Coast, seaside towns of Scarborough, Bridlington and Whitby are all within an hour's drive. The surrounding area is steeped in history, with an abundance of abbeys, stately homes and gardens, such as Castle Howard, Byland Abbey and Helmsley Castle, waiting to be explored. Also close by are miniature and full size steam railways, together with Flamingo Land, Light Water Valley, The Forbidden Corner, Sea World and The Deep, great for family days out.
