  • "Lovely cottage and village, everyone so friendly made you feel welcome and the place was close to visit."

  • "Had a great time in Chapel Cottage."

    There was a lovely lemon drizzle cake to welcome us and a bottle of milk in the fridge so we could make a cup of tea after our journey. Also David had left us some damson gin to try. David lived next door and was very friendly, if we needed him for anything he was quick to respond. The White Bear pub across the road very friendly and welcoming to us and our dog. The Bay Tree also was dog friendly. Everyone we met were very friendly and we hope to be back later in the year when the weather may be a little warmer, and less windy! Thanks David and Tanya for a lovely stay.

  • "The cottage had been beautifully decorated for Xmas and we had a wonderful stay."

    The cottage is very cosy and the open fire really makes it. Stillington is a lovely little village and the pub opposite was dog friendly and very welcoming. The cake and damson gin were a lovely touch and David the owner was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Lots of walks on the doorstep couldn’t recommend enough. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Craig & Stacy

    It was great to be able to sit in the patio garden. The owners were very friendly & helpful. The bathroom is very compact but quite adequate. Easy parking outside & a good pub opposite. A very enjoyable stay.

  • "We had a great stay at Chapel Cottage."

    Perfect for two, parking right outside in a quiet village, the only things going up and down the road were us and the harvesting lorries. Absolutely fantastic location for visiting York itself and tourist attractions in Yorkshire. Two great pubs, one opposite (not noisy at all, fantastic real ale selection and innovative food) and another about 100yds along, slightly more up market. We had a great time all around, the owner just next door was very welcoming, the little bottle of flavoured gin was delicious. We would definitely recommend Chapel Cottage as a base for sight seeing, or just some down time.

  • "Very comfortable and cosy stay."

    Only downside was the size of the bathroom. Despite unable to use the basin due to push plug leaking, it was really too small to be practical. The property could also benefit from information on how to use various items and things to do in the local area.

An annexe to the owner's property, this Grade II listed former chapel house is ideally placed for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside of the Howardian Hills and the historic market towns of Easingwold and Helmsley.

With cosy and characterful accommodation, this Stillington cottage retains original features, with beamed ceilings, quarry tiled floors and a lovely Yorkist range in the sitting room, which houses a welcoming open fire and is a joy to relax around in the winter months.

Combining new with old, this Stillington cottage provides a modern bathroom and kitchen, whilst the narrow cottage stairs lead up to the two tasteful and country-styled bedrooms.

Comfortable and well-equipped, guests at this Stillington cottage will be captivated by its charm.

The village itself has a traditional village green and good amenities, including a shop, a local inn and a bistro, whilst a few minutes’ drive will bring you to York, with its theatres, restaurants and many attractions.

Nearby, guests can find Fountains and Rievaulx Abbeys, which are well worth visiting, whilst the stately home of Castle Howard has magnificent grounds and lakes.

A perfect Stillington cottage all year round.
