To add to this the property is situated in an amazing area with fantastic views. It seems miles from everything but it is very close to lots of beautiful villages and larger towns.

Locally, the Plum and Partridge was a nice bar/restaurant, but our personal favourite was the Fauconberg Arms in the next village along. All in all, we had a wonderful time. Thanks!

    The cottage was well appointed and had everything we wanted. Our only criticism was not enough clothes drawers or any wardrobe in the bedroom areas for a full weeks stay. We managed ok but with a bit of thought about this there is space to provide these extras. Without these we would still be happy to return as it was ideally placed for our stay. The village has no pub and 1 restaurant. We aren't that bothered but if you want a pub you can go to without having to drive this may not suit you.

The property

This fabulous cottage lies just outside the village of Husthwaite, which sits on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, overlooking the Vale of York.

Perfectly suited for couples or a small family, The Hayloft is wonderfully decorated, with a modern interior and attractive features which create a real home-away-from-home feel throughout.

Upon entering, you will be welcomed by an open-plan living area, nicely styled with comfortable seating and a wall-mounted TV.

There is a charming dining table, perfect for breakfast or dinner with your loved ones, backed by an L shaped kitchen with an oak finish.

The ground floor is also home to an all-white classic shower room and a single bedroom complete with a dressing table.

A beautiful aspect of the cottage is the mezzanine bedroom, a double room tucked away beneath low ceilings, with exposed beams and Velux windows which look out towards the lovely grounds.

An armchair rests to the side of the layout, should you wish to take a moment to admire the stunning arrangement, overseeing the downstairs and its contemporary down-lighting.

For more quiet time, the patio area outside is a peaceful place to relax, ideal for a well-earned rest after an adventure-filled afternoon.

Husthwaite is a charming village to base your cottage holiday, offering a pub/restaurant.

From here, you can either venture through the breath-taking Howardian Hills, which lies adjacent to Husthwaite, or you can discover the charming nearby towns and cities with their interesting buildings and fine range of amenities, including the instantly recognisable, ancient city of York.

All you need for a memorable getaway.

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 pubs and cafes, whilst York with its famous Minster, medieval walls and Jorvik Viking Centre, is a short drive away.
