  • Mrs Howard

    “As a few other people have mentioned, the cottage itself is fine, but potential customers should be aware that the surrounding roads and path leading up to the cottage are VERY bumpy and uneven, and can possibly cause damage to your car.”

    - Mrs Howard, October 2019

The property

Welburn 2.5 miles.

An attractive stone annexe, adjoining the owners' property, on their smallholding, within the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just less than a mile from the small village of Bulmer and a couple of miles from the pretty village of Welburn.

With fine, far-reaching views over rolling countryside, this property offers a good base for those wishing to walk the North York Moors and explore the nearby historic city of York.

Offering mainly ground floor accommodation, there is a comfortable and homely sitting room, a bright and modern kitchen with a small dining area and a ground floor double bedroom.

Upstairs is a pleasant twin room, with a Velux window throwing in plenty of light.

The surrounding countryside offers ideal cycling and walking opportunities, with quiet country lanes leading to famous Castle Howard, just three miles away.

The area is packed with stately homes, gardens and historic monuments, including Rievaulx and Byland Abbeys, Nunnington Hall, Duncombe Park and Helmsley walled garden.

There are pretty nearby market towns, such as Malton, Easingwold and Helmsley, all worth visiting, especially on market days, and York is a must, with its magnificent Minster, Jorvik Viking Centre, National Railway Museum and medieval city walls.

With easy access to the seaside resorts of Scarborough, Bridlington and Whitby, this property provides a good base for an interesting and varied holiday.
