    Not that this was a problem as we had no problems. Most of the leaflets about the surrounding areas and places to visit were very out of date so just went to the nearest tourist information and picked up new ones. Nice relaxing holiday.

The property

An outstanding, Grade II listed stone-built cottage, formerly part of the owner's farmhouse, set on the fringes of the Howardian Hills AONB, near Brandsby village.

The farmhouse dates back to 1427 and plays host to a working rare-breed cattle farm, conveniently situated between York and Helmsley.

Lovingly restored, this delightful cottage boasts exposed beams and a traditional sitting room with a woodburner and oak flooring where you can fully unwind from an adventure on the moors.

An open-tread staircase leads to the first floor, where you will find two bedrooms, including a king-size double with an en-suite shower.

There is also a family bathroom, offering a deep-soaking bath tub, perfect for a spot of relaxation before getting tucked up in bed.

This quality cottage is complemented by the charming walled courtyard outside, ideal for dining alfresco.

Set in the beautiful countryside of North Yorkshire, with great walking and riding opportunities on the many footpaths and bridleways, this is an ideal base for a rejuvenating break.

Seaves Cottage is within close reach of some excellent pubs such as the Durham Ox at Crayke, and The Bay Tree at Stirlington.

Visit the historic city of York, the market towns of Helmsley and Malton, the stately homes, castles and museums in the area, or enjoy Whitby, Scarborough and the North York Moors.
