  • “The cottage was lovely, really beautifully decorated and having the touches of fresh bread, eggs, milk etc was so kind.”

    The bed was really comfy and everything worked well. The village was really quaint and lovely to explore with the abbey a short cycle (or longer walk away!) the local pub which is literally a 2min walk up the road serves a delicious Sunday lunch too. ...

    The bed was really comfy and everything worked well. The village was really quaint and lovely to explore with the abbey a short cycle (or longer walk away!) the local pub which is literally a 2min walk up the road serves a delicious Sunday lunch too. The only thing I would say is it would have been nicer to have a better store of logs and kindling so we could get the fire going more often as it got a bit chilly on some evenings and there were only a few there. The heating Did come on in the mornings and later evenings but it’s when we got in from a day out on occasion it was a tad chilly. But we had a fantastic holiday and was such a pleasure to visit a beautiful place in Yorkshire! So many things to do and places to visit, we definitely hope to return!

The property

Ampleforth 4.3 miles.

Sitting within the desirable conservation village of Coxwold, in the scenic wonder of the North York Moors National Park, is this enchanting romantic retreat.

School House Cottage is a quaint cottage to base a holiday to North Yorkshire, and with the property sitting next to tearooms, there's no better spot from which to enjoy a traditionally English retreat.

Step into the hallway of this beautiful abode and settle down your belongings before entering the snug sitting room where a welcoming woodburning stove takes centre stage, making the perfect spot to wind down with a celebratory glass of wine for a romantic and relaxing evening in.

Make your way up the staircase to reach the delight of the kitchen/diner, here you can enjoy all of your romantic meals together, surrounded by quaint and contemporary settings, with the modest spot holding all the essentials of an electric oven and hob, a microwave and a fridge/freezer, offering all you could need when you're not sampling the tasty tearooms next door.

End your evening by cosying under the covers of the king-size bed with a television in this room too; you can watch all your favourite shows from the comfort of your bed!

Begin each day in the sparkling bathroom, refreshing with a quick rinse under the shower, begin pulling on your dressing down and heading out into the lawned garden with your canine companion, absorbing the fresh countryside breeze.

Venture out to explore the local village, where you can indulge in a delicious pub lunch, or if you fancy making your own meals, there is a local shop walking distance from the property, or maybe you could head further afield into Ampleforth where you can find a local shop to gather your own ingredients; a wonderful village to explore with its quaint tradition and stunning scenery.

For a day full of thrills, be sure to make your way to Flamingo Land in Kirby Misperton, home to eight unique theme areas with rides for all ages, as well as an award-winning zoo with 140 species of reptiles, mammals and birds, there's so much to be seen here, or explore wildlife in a different way by rambling amongst the North York Moors, boasting one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the United Kingdom, here you can find a peaceful spot to enjoy a picnic, with walking and cycling routes all around, rich heritage and vibrant landscapes, it's a true spectacle to be seen.

In reach of the wonders of York and Thirsk too offering their own excitement, School House Cottage is a true delight of a holiday home to base your romantic escape.
