    “Lucy and Eugene have only taken over in the last few weeks and have great plans for refurbishment and we wish them every success in the future.”

    The location is great with far reaching views and very friendly animals and is convenient for exploring the area.

Hartswood Farm Cottages

Malton 8 miles. Situated near the small hamlet of East Knapton, surrounded by open, working countryside, these four properties, including two lovely apartments, a ground-floor open plan barn conversion, and a delightful wing of a former farmstead are set within the owner’s large property and grounds. Ideally located, these Malton cottages are close to many attractions in the area, including stately homes, gardens and the seaside towns of Filey and Scarborough. Both of the apartments provide inviting first-floor accommodation, with bright and comfortable sitting rooms and modern bathrooms and kitchens, whilst the former farmstead cottage boasts period features, such as beamed ceilings, parquet floors, original fireplaces and a woodburning stove. The ground-floor open-plan cowshed is a lovely romantic retreat, with all you need in one place beneath delightful exposed beams, with views of the ponies and goats in the fields to wake up to. Tastefully furnished and decorated, these four properties near Malton have shared access to a fabulous heated indoor swimming pool with a Jacuzzi, changing rooms and comfortable seating. Outside the two apartments each enjoy their own private patio, the cowshed has a lovely fenced seating area, whilst all four holiday homes have access to communal lawns, with rural views towards Dalby Forest and the Vale of Pickering. The pretty market town of Malton offers a cobbled market square, independent shops and an array of tea rooms and pubs, whilst nearby Pickering has a castle, museums and is the terminus of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway; well worth a nostalgic trip through spectacular moorland scenery. For the more energetic, Dalby Forest offers biking and walking trails, with its Go Ape activity centre and bike hire. Why not enjoy a visit to nearby Scampston House and its beautiful gardens, or have a fun-filled day at Flamingo Land theme park? With something for everyone in this beautiful area, these three holiday homes near Malton will appeal to all the family.

About the location


Malton 4.7 miles; Scarborough 18.5 miles; York 23 miles.

Rillington is a small village and civil parish located on the A64 road in North Yorkshire, with easy links to the historical city of York and the bustling coastal town of Scarborough. Rillington was mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Survey and is now home to a Post Office, two pubs, The Coach and Horses and The Fleece, and a church. The rural community was developed many years ago due to the presence of fertile soil and the village is still home to an active farming community. Nearby attractions include the Scampton Walled Garden, a contemporary garden open for visitors throughout the year, and the Wolds Way Lavender, a lavender farm and visitor centre. Further afield into the city of York, you can discover the incredible York Minster and grand city walls. Heading towards the coast, the seaside towns of Filey and Scarborough offer a good selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés, as well as gorgeous promenades, water sports and golden sandy beaches.
