Sleepy Hollow is a beautiful cottage in a tiny village. It was a perfect accommodation for a party of 7 ladies. The cottage itself was spotless. It was modern and extremely well kept. It had every you needed. Kitchen well equipped. The beds ware extremely comfortable. The garden was ample size to sit and listen to the birds, whilst relaxing around the garden table. I would recommend this cottage to anyone. We will definitely be returning in the future. The complimentary basket was a really lovely touch. The village pub has been closed down, but it wasn't a problem. The village shop only opened at certain times. Local bus to surrounding areas were fine. We all throughly enjoyed it.

About the location
Easingwold 3 miles; Thirsk 6 miles; York 17 miles.
The small historic village of Husthwaite lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, overlooking the Vale of York. Picturesque and peaceful, the village is a perfect introduction to "Herriot Country", a beautiful old Norman church, many fine old houses and an active village hall hosting many events throughout the year. The nearby White Horse of Kilburn, cut out of the hillside in 1857, is a prominent local landmark. The lovely market town of Easingwold is nearby, boasting a pretty market square and a good selection of shops, pubs and cafes, whilst York with its famous Minster, medieval walls and Jorvik Viking Centre, is a short drive away. The Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors and Coast are also within easy touring distance and are rich in stately homes and National Trust attractions - Harewood House and Castle Howard are just two of several within an hour's drive.
