  • "We spent a lovely two weeks here."

    The accommodation was warm and cosy with everything you could possibly need for a fantastic stay. The area was very quiet and a lovely safe area for walking our dog. Our only regret is that we didn't discover it sooner. Thanks Kath for making us so very welcome.

    Having booked it on the strength of the photos and reviews.The cleanliness overall was poor, especially in the bathroom. The lounge needed updating the carpet had numerous stains. The decking area was a complete shambles, there was bird droppings everywhere .The table was unusable nothing like the photos, don't think we will be returning.

  • "Brayton Retreat is a lovely, warm, comfortable annex joined to the owners house."

    It is set in a lovely little estate of detached houses, so is very peaceful. We immediately felt relaxed upon entering and the welcome boxes, ( for us and our dog ), went far beyond anything we have received at other holiday homes. The owners welcomed us and were on hand should we have needed them. Due to our visit being in December, we didn't make use of the garden, but it was very handy for letting our dog out early morning and late at night. The holiday flat is in an excellent position for visiting surrounding towns and we used the park and ride at the Designers Outlet to travel into central York. Dogs are allowed on the buses. Selby has nearly all the major supermarkets and there is a Tesco Express in Brayton. We would recommend Brayton Retreat to anyone wishing to visit the area.

The property

This is a delightful self-contained property, set all on the ground floor and attached to the owner's home, in the quaint village of Brayton and just 1.8 miles away from the thriving market town of Selby.

Ideal as a base for the solo traveller or two friends looking to explore Yorkshire, this property is less than an hours drive from the historic city of York and offers a home-from-home for you and your four-legged friend all year round.

Inside you’ll find one bedroom with two single beds, as well as a shower room, a kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area and a warming gas fire, perfect for enjoying hearty meals.

The sitting room also overlooks the shared garden, a real suntrap, just the ticket for enjoying a morning cuppa or a glass of your favourite tipple after dinner.

The small village of Brayton offers a selection of local shops and a lovely village green, whilst only 1.8 miles away, for those interested in history, is the superb medieval abbey at Selby, famous as the birthplace of English kings and home to stunning stained glass windows.

There are many more attractions within easy reach of The Annexe, including the York Designer Outlet, for a spot of retail therapy, whilst the park and ride facility here will take you over to the fabulous city of York itself, home to the Minster, the Shambles and the famous National Railway Museum.

You could also pay a visit to Kingston-Upon-Hull’s award-winning aquarium, home to penguins, sharks and rays aplenty.

Last but most certainly not least, when it comes to food and drink you'll be spoilt for choice here in Yorkshire, whether you're craving real ale, Yorkshire puddings or delicious fresh produce such as rhubarb and Wensleydale cheese.

So, no matter what you decide to get up to whilst here, this property is the perfect starting point from which to discover all the towns and pretty villages Yorkshire has to offer.

About the location


Selby 1.8 miles; York 17 miles.

The small and pretty village of Brayton is an ancient parish, dating back to Saxon times and mentioned in the Domesday Book. There is a selection of local shops, a butcher and a delightful village green, as well as a Norman church and a Methodist chapel dating back to the 1800s. Less than two miles away is the historic town of Selby, a real hidden gem with an impressive abbey and a fine selection of restaurants. Also close by is the fabulous city of York which teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums (including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. A wonderful holiday destination.
