  • "River View was amazing!"

    Real home from home with everything that you could possibly need. Location is fantastic for so many places. Graham is a fantastic host and the cottage is furnished (gorgeous interior) and equipped for all your needs. A welcome pack was provided and a lot of thought was put into it for our teenagers to enjoy as well as ourselves. A prompt visit to see if we had settled in by Graham led to him giving us a bottle of processo which was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend this cottage to any family or group of friends to enjoy. The village had bakers/butchers/pharmacy and a choice of pizza, Indian and Chinese takeaway. Although a pub is next door it was very quiet at night. Would 100% return.

The property

Resting in the historic village of Stamford Bridge in the East Riding of Yorkshire is Riverview, a beautiful foliage covered period property in a quaint village setting.

This stunning and contemporary-styled three-storey property is ideal for a family looking for a relaxing rural getaway, while also being within easy reach of the wonderful city of York.

Enter the gated front patio and admire your surroundings, before stepping inside to find an inviting interior, boasting neutral tones, with wooden accents, solid oak and mango wood furniture and a very calming feel.

Enter the living/dining room, which boasts a large window offering pretty views and wooden shutters, which you can close in the evenings as you curl up on the sofa in front of the cosy electric logburner effect fire, filling the room with warmth as you flick on the TV to find a great film to watch, or simply curl up with a good book in hand.

The wooden dining table can comfortably seat the whole group for family meals, cooked in the contemporary, galley-style kitchen, boasting integrated appliances to assist you with your self-catering needs, including a dishwasher to take care of the washing up.

You will also find a handy separate laundry room with washing machine and dryer.

Catch up on sleep in one of three generously sized bedrooms; on the first floor you'll find a double bedroom overlooking the nearby water mill and a single room, both sharing access to the superbly finished, fully-tiled bathroom suite complete with an inviting sunken bath, ideal for relaxing at the end of a busy day, as well as a walk-in shower.

The second floor boasts an impressive loft master bedroom with king-size double bed (zip/link - can be made into a twin upon request) resting under the eaves with exposed beams and a wonderful skylight.

Spend time in the enclosed patio garden, enjoying an alfresco lunch and admiring the colourful foliage.

When you don't feel like cooking, venture into Stamford Bridge to find a selection of shops and eateries including an ice cream parlour, family run bistro and award winning fish and chip shop!

Here, you will also find a supermarket, pharmacy, butchers and a bakery for picking up any essentials.

End the day with a glass of wine or refreshing pint of beer in the handy Bay Horse pub next door.

Enjoy strolls and look out for beautiful wildlife along the River Derwent, just opposite Riverview, as well as the walking and cycling trail along the renovated railway viaduct.

Be sure to visit the historic site of the Battle of Stamford Bridge, which took place on the 25th September 1066, with the memorial site being visible from the properties front windows.

The pretty market towns of Malton, Beverley and Driffield are within driving distance, the latter of which boasts independent shops, a selection of pubs and restaurants and a superb 18-hole golf course.

The incredible city of York is within easy reaching distance (at just 8 miles away, or a handy 15 minute bus journey) and offers excellent shopping along its famous street The Shambles, along with a Gothic cathedral boasting vast stained glass windows, the National Railway Museum and popular JORVIK Viking Centre.

Be sure to visit the 18th century Castle Howard, which fans may recognise from Brideshead Revisited and, more recently, popular television show Bridgerton.

Keen walkers will delight in discovering scenic enchanting forests, rolling hills and wildlife in the remarkable Howardian Hills AONB.

If you fancy a trip a little further afield, find both Scarborough and Whitby just an hour away - Enjoy the stunning beaches and promenades, the beautiful Peasholm Park and the Sealife Sanctuary in Scarborough, whilst in Whitby you will find the ruins of the Gothic Whitby Abbey, the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s 'Dracula', a selection of restaurants and quirky independent shops, the traditional Fortune’s Kippers smokehouse and much more.

About the location


York 8.5 miles.

Stamford Bridge, as its name suggests, was a fording point over the River Derwent for a Roman settlement. Nowadays, it is a village with a selection of shops and restaurants and is notable for a renovated railway viaduct, which is now used as a cycle and public footpath. The village is well known as the site of the Battle of Stamford Bridge on 25th September 1066, which marked the end of the Viking era in Britain. Within easy reach are the pretty Yorkshire market towns of Malton, Beverley and Driffield and within an hour’s drive is the unspoilt coastal resort of Filey with open beaches and the nearby RSPB nature reserve at Bempton.
