The property

Hambleton 0.8 miles.

Sitting in Hambleton Hough nature reserve between the villages of Gateforth and Hambleton in North Yorkshire, not far from the market town of Selby, is this charming, detached single-storey dwelling, Claire Cottage, adjacent, and private from, the owners house.

Enjoying an enclosed rear patio and ground-floor living, this pet-friendly Yorkshire property is perfect for two couples or families seeking a relaxing retreat.

Following an eventful day of activities, return to the comfort of the sitting room and unwind beneath the rustic beams on one of the armchairs or the sofa, with a large TV to enjoy and an open fire to keep you warm on winter nights, it's a homely spot.

The kitchen/diner is a contemporary space with large windows looking out to the enclosed patio, with a fitted kitchen containing all the appliances for some fantastic home-cooking, with a dining table to gather around and toast to your well earned break.

Spend time outside on sunny days using the outdoor furniture on the patio with your canine companions by your side, enjoy the front garden or play games and have picnics in the owners enclosed field opposite.

The bedrooms have both been decorated in a light and airy style and each benefit from an en-suite bathroom, one with a bath and overhead shower, and the other has a large walk-in shower enclosure.

The closest amenities are in the nearby village of Hambleton home to two pubs, one of which is part of a hotel serving excellent food, and Hambleton stores local shop.

There are numerous walks to enjoy from right outside the front door with map guides provided.

The market town of Selby is a historic spot and one of Yorkshire's hidden gems, with a breath-taking medieval Abbey and a crumbling 15th century gatehouse to visit, alongside some fine restaurants for a memorable meal.

Venture to the vibrant city of York to discover plenty of attractions to entertain all tastes like York Minster, National Railway Museum York, York City Walls and Jorvik Viking Centre, along with The York Dungeon and York Castle Museum.

Other attractions under an hour's drive include Tropical World, Ponderosa Zoo, Diggerland Yorkshire, Lotherton Hall, Harewood House and hill climb, Castle Howard, Mother Shipton’s park, Royal Armouries and much more.
