  • “Like everything about Stable Cottage except the seating , living room and dining room chairs need replacing.”

    - Colin, November 2021

    We're delighted that you liked everything about Stable Cottage and note your comments about the seating in the living room and dining room chairs. We will, following this feedback, check the seating in those areas however, the seating is changed on a regular basis and the living room seating was changed two seasons ago; the dining room chairs were changed in 2020.

About the location


Helmsley 8 miles; Malton 8 miles; York 20 miles.

The pretty North Yorkshire village of Hovingham sits amidst the beautiful countryside of the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is a real gem, with a beck running down the high street, two excellent inns, a traditional village shop, a tea room and a bakery. There are excellent walking and cycling opportunities from the village itself, as well as easy access to the beautiful National Park. The stately home and gardens of Castle Howard are just 4 miles away, and the market towns of Malton and Helmsley are 8 miles away. Historic York and the attractions of the East Coast are further afield but well worth the trip!
