Hairdryer, iron & table top ironing board supplied. All types of plastic glasses for the hot tub supplied.

Your own bins are at the side of the cottage which was great for recycling.

We have recommended this cottage to our friend's & would book again when next wanting to explore the area.

    Our stay was just wonderful from start to finish. The hosts Julie and Dave were very helpful and were only a text away at any time. The cottage was very well equipped and the quality of everything in the cottage was 5 star! The hot tub was lovely and very clean. The village pub was only a short walk away, where we enjoyed a lovely meal. Had a few peaceful walks around Ellerton. We couldn't recommend this place enough and we would love to return in the future :)

  • "We had a brilliant week away at the Old Mill Hideaway."

    We are very choosy at where to stay on holiday, and spend a lot of time perusing holiday properties and scrutinising photos before deciding. This property looked fantastic on Sykes and was even better in real life! From the warm welcome from Julie on arrival, and welcome hamper of goodies. The quiet location, yet so close to York and other attractions. The lovely modern, clean, fresh and light décor, and the indulgence of a bubbling hot tub at the bottom of our patio. Everything was just perfect. We are sure to return in the future. Well done Julie and Dave.

    Everything you need to make your stay comfy, the only thing you will need to take are your own personal toiletries.

  • "Great little cottage in a quiet village but convenient to drive to York and Selby."

    The fittings and furniture are top quality and everything was spotlessly clean. The owners were very helpul in sorting out our questions over the heating and even bought us a cup of sugar as we arrived too late to go out for provisions. The hot tub was fab and we were able to use it when it was raining hard as it was under a covered gazebo. There was plenty of wood for the logburner which was good to sit round as is was cold outside. Would recommend the local pub which was in walking distance and does a great Sunday lunch. We would definitely book again.

    The bedroom and bathroom were fantastic and very up to date and modern, a nice touch was the heated floor in the bathroom. The Hideaway had everything we needed, one thing not mentioned was that there is a small freezer in the top of the fridge. The cherry on top to this amazing place was it has a hot tub in the small patioed section, it’s covered by a hard roof and cleaned every night by the owners. The owners were very welcoming and came to see us upon arrival and before we left. We’ll definitely be coming back.

The property

Tucked away in the quiet little village of Ellerton, engulfed by luscious green pastures and rambling Yorkshire countryside, is this freshly converted, detached annex in the grounds of the former windmill; a picturesque scene to be admired from the moment you make your way up the gated driveway.

As you step through the double French doors from the enclosed patio you will be immediately delighted by the high quality design laid out in the open-plan living space, with bright and airy colour schemes alluring you into a sense of calm and tranquillity.

Relax and unwind on the sofa with the woodburner ablaze, or step across to the kitchen to find all that you need to cook up a delicious dinner on sleek worktops, with ultra-modern fixtures and fittings.

The dining area rests adjacent, finishing the setup in style.

Just off from here is the luxurious bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space and a contemporary en-suite bathroom, enjoying a chic set of black, white and grey overtones.

This modern formation is simply perfect for couples seeking some quality time together, with the added benefit of the fabulous outdoor hot tub, privately stowed under a luxury wooden gazebo, for added seclusion in a romantic setting.

Here you can also enjoy sitting out during summer months on the garden furniture, with a refreshing beverage in hand, over a spot of alfresco dining.

Perhaps head into the village one afternoon and have a cheeky drink at the local pub, as you're passing through on a leisurely stroll.

Or take a trip to the North Yorkshire Coastline which you can reach within the hour.

Also nearby is the Lower Derwent Valley National Nature Reserve comprising a wealth of woodland and wild meadows for walks in the country, while the town of Selby boasts shopping, restaurants and Selby Abbey for exploring.

A fantastic getaway not to be missed.
