The cottage

An attractive stone-built, first floor cottage set in a wonderful location in the pretty village of Hovingham.

Bright and airy and accessed via its own entrance, up a flight of internal stairs, this Hovingham cottage is ideal for couples and small families wishing to explore this beautiful part of the country, but with easy access to the historic city of York.

With a modern kitchen and shower room and a light and spacious sitting room, this cottage in Hovingham provides very comfortable accommodation with a pleasant outlook.

Well-equipped, with garage parking below, this Hovingham cottage has an enclosed sunny courtyard, perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine after a busy day!

A five minute stroll through the delightful village brings you to the local pubs, shop and quaint tea room, whilst walkers are spoilt for choice with the many footpaths and trails nearby.

Across the road from the property is Hovingham Hall, the family home of the Duchess of Kent's family.

The historic market towns of Helmsley and Malton are a few minutes' drive from this cottage in Hovingham, and offer some excellent independent shops, restaurants and regular market days.

The area is rich with stately homes such as Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall and Duncombe Park, whilst Rievaulx Abbey, Fountains Abbey, Helmsley and Pickering Castles are well worth visiting.

A well-placed Hovingham cottage for a wonderful holiday.

About the location


Helmsley 8 miles; Malton 8 miles; York 20 miles.

The pretty North Yorkshire village of Hovingham sits amidst the beautiful countryside of the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is a real gem, with a beck running down the high street, two excellent inns, a traditional village shop, a tea room and a bakery. There are excellent walking and cycling opportunities from the village itself, as well as easy access to the beautiful National Park. The stately home and gardens of Castle Howard are just 4 miles away, and the market towns of Malton and Helmsley are 8 miles away. Historic York and the attractions of the East Coast are further afield but well worth the trip!
