    We had a wonderful holiday from start to finish as this is such a wonderful location and so peaceful. The property is in lovely condition and has been well thought out, giving everyone plenty of space. The welcome pack was very generous and everywhere was clean and tidy. There is ample crockery and cutlery, even when the dish-washer was full. All bedding was of a good quality and towels were lovely and soft. The garden facilities were excellent, the garden games box was well used by the children, the hot tub and fire pit were an added bonus and everyone enjoyed sitting out with the garden lights. The garden is totally secure, which meant we didn’t need to worry if the children or dogs ran out into the garden. It was handy to have an outdoor tap to wash the dog and a dog towel was provided. It’s great to have TVs in all of the bedrooms and the Wi-Fi signal strength was more than adequate. The only thing missing was a tea-towel for the kitchen, but we always take one with us. The shower water pressure was low from time to time but with a bit of organising shower times it didn’t pose a big problem. The owners have certainly tried to think of everything for a relaxing holiday home and have obviously taken on board previous comments by guests. We would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful, spacious property in a great area of the country as this felt more like a home from home than a holiday.

About the property

This spacious, detached property lies in the rural village of Wistow, under three miles away from the market town of Selby in North Yorkshire.

Inside, the property has been renovated to a high-standard with all contemporary furnishings, giving that warm and welcoming feeling throughout.

The gated entrance provides access to the property and the driveway has space for four cars.

Be welcomed into the stylish kitchen/diner, fitted with sleek white units and granite worktops, along with a range of integrated appliances and a centre island unit; it is sure to entice some home-cooking.

Gather round the dining table over a lovingly-prepared feast and toast a well-deserved getaway amidst your loved ones.

Pack away your dishes in the dishwasher before discovering the sitting room, complete with a sumptuous corner sofa and woodburning stove; it’s the perfect place to escape reality as you get lost in a good movie.

The ground floor also has the convenience of a cloakroom and a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Move upstairs to find the bedrooms, each of which have thoughtfully decorated with crisp white linen and Smart TVs.

The master includes a super-king-size bed and en-suite shower room, while there are two more super-king-size bedrooms served by the lavish family bathroom.

The remaining bedrooms rest on the second floor and are comprised of a super-king-size and twin, offering flexible sleeping arrangements for families.

Continuing to the impress, the garden is the one of the most outstanding features of Cobblers Cottage; start the day with a morning coffee at the furniture, spend lunchtime with a gentle picnic on the lawn before returning in the evening for a relaxing sit by the firepit followed by soak in the hot tub.

If you can tear yourself away from this exceptional abode, make your way into Selby, home to a plethora of traditional pubs, restaurants, cafés and supermarkets for picking up any essentials.

The nearby historic town of Tadcaster also boasts a selection of bars, breweries and restaurants, with the River Wharfe running through the town.

For days out whilst staying here, venture to the cosmopolitan city of Leeds via the local train, where you will find further quality amenities, whilst the city of York houses the York Minster, the National Railway Museum York and The York Dungeon.

Harrogate is also worth a trip, hosting a broad array of unique attractions including the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and the stunning Ripon Cathedral, which is believed to be a source of inspiration for Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland.

Those feeling active will venture a little further to the Yorkshire Dales National Park where you will find miles of walking routes amid rugged moorland and beautiful scenery.

With easy access to historic cities and breath-taking scenery, Cobblers Cottage ticks all the boxes for a memorable family retreat.

About the location


Howden 9.9 miles; Castleford 17.6 miles.

Resting fourteen miles south of York on the River Ouse, the historic town of Selby is considered one of Yorkshire’s hidden gems. In the centre of the town rests the imposing Selby Abbey, a medieval parish church, which has been a place of worship for over 900 years. There are also a number of restaurants, pubs, cafés and shops ranging from independent shops to supermarkets. Within the surrounding area, there are plenty of scenic routes including the Selby Horseshoe, Wolsey Walk and the Drax Millennium, while the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Park are within an hour's drive, making this an ideal holiday location for outdoor enthusiasts. Further afield, the cities of Leeds and York are easily accessible via train and offer a welcome change of scenery.
