  • “The log burner doors needed attention twice to replace/fix the seals.”


    The dining room window rained in. The cottage was cold until the owner eventually showed us how to adjust the heating (no obvious simple instructions) 4 days into the holiday. We eventually found the thermostat which was near the log burner (never thought to look there not a normal or sensible place to sight it) hence the heating did not come on apart from 20 minutes through the night. There is no prospect of us returning to Prospect House. Local pub did not do food. But found one in Skipwith The Drovers Arms which was excellent, good food/drink dog friendly.

The property

Bubwith 4.1 miles.

This detached, spacious property is set on a quiet road, opposite a lovely duck pond, in the quaint village of Ellerton near Bubwith, in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

With private driveway parking and sleeping arrangements for six, this property is ideal for a family or small group looking to explore Yorkshire, within easy reach of the city of York.

Entering Prospect House, you will discover the sitting room, with a leather sofa and armchair to relax into, a TV with Freeview and DVD Player providing hours of entertainment while the heat from the woodburning stove fills the room with warmth and adds to the cosy feel, plus a set of patio doors which can be opened up onto a gravelled pathway, which leads round to the front garden.

The spacious kitchen/diner has seating for six, perfect for gathering together to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal and making plans for the remainder of your stay, while the kitchen has all of the amenities you could wish for, including a dishwasher to take care of any washing up requirements, and you can even enjoy the background noise of the TV with Freeview as you prep your meals, while the utility room houses a washing machine, for added convenience.

The ground-floor family bathroom has a shower over bath, giving you the option of how you would prefer to start the day and meaning a queue for the bathroom in the morning far less likely.

There is a conservatory with lots of seating, where you can grab a quiet moment and enjoy a good book, while the patio door again leads out onto the lawn.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, one king-size, one double and two singles, all offering plenty of space and storage for all of your belongings, while the single rooms are ideal for children.

The bathroom has a corner bath with shower over, so again the choice is yours between a relaxing soak and a quick shower to prepare for each day.

Outside, the spacious driveway has parking for two cars, while the enclosed front garden has a lawn and picnic bench-style seating, ideal for a spot of lunch whilst the children or pets run around safely and freely.

Ellerton village has a pub and a microbrewery, as well as the charming duck pond opposite the property, which is great for an afternoon stroll or sitting on a bench and watching the world go by.

Nearby Bubwith is an ancient town, referenced in the Domesday Book, which has a wider selection of shops, including a butchers, convenience store, post office and restaurant, while the River Derwent flows close by and offers lovely riverside walking opportunities.

The town of Selby is close to the River Ouse and is home to Selby Abbey, a medieval 11th century building that remains one of the few surviving church buildings with both Norman and Gothic styles, Grade II listed landmark The Market Cross, which dates back to 1775, an indoor adventure centre where you can rock climb, skate and ski and the lovely park and gardens of Selby Park.

Further afield, the city of York is within easy reach, home of Bettys Tea Room, ideal for a delicious afternoon tea, the Jorvik Viking Centre, a reconstructed Viking village with an adjoining museum, York Dungeon and York Castle Museum.

Take part in a guided tour and learn more about the history of the city, visit York Minster, a stunning Gothic cathedral, walk the iconic cobbled street of the famous Shambles, enjoy a musical or band playing at York Barbican and enjoy railway history and artefacts at the National Railway Museum York.

There is so much to see and do in the surrounding area, and Prospect house is the perfect family base to return to each evening.
