    “Lara the owner greeted us on arrival and gave us all the info about this lovely cottage also about the area including the local pubs/post office/Indian restaurant and chip shop all within easy walking distance from the cottage.”


    The White bear pub is the place to go for food plus you can take your dog into the bar area. There was fresh milk in the fridge plus in a small hamper there was tea/coffee and chocolate biscuits and leaflets with info about the local area even our small dog molly had a dogs bowl with treats. This lovely cottage had everything that you have at home even heated bed blankets for the chilly evenings. We were about an hour into our 4 hour journey home when my mobile rang it was Lara we had left a bag behind which contained our iPads plus other items so Lara very kindly sent them to us via parcel post. I would highly recommend this lovely private cottage to anyone. Thank you once again Lara for everything. Kind regards Mike,Jackie & Molly

The property

Quietly tucked away off the main street in the delightful village of Stillington, is this charming 18th century detached cottage.

Once a working forge, this pretty little cottage makes a perfect romantic hideaway for couples to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside of the Howardian Hills with easy access to the historic city of York and picturesque market towns.

With all ground floor accommodation, there is a spacious open plan living area with a high-pitched beamed ceiling, modern kitchen and comfortable sitting area.

The charming double bedroom leads off from this, with an en-suite shower room.

Outside the cottage, is an enclosed courtyard garden; a lovely sheltered spot to sit and relax in the sunshine.

A short stroll brings you to the local amenities in this popular village, with pubs, an Indian restaurant, fish and chip shop and a village shop.

Walkers and cyclists are spoilt for choice with tracks in abundance in the immediate area, whilst the hourly bus service to York enables guests to leave their car behind to explore this fantastic city.

A must is the Jorvik Viking Centre, the National Railway Museum and the famous York Minster.

The nearby historic market towns of Easingwold and Thirsk both host weekly markets in their cobbled squares, lined with independent shops, tea rooms and inns and picturesque Helmsley has a wonderful display of colourful hanging baskets during the summer months.

With easy access to the stunning scenery of North Yorkshire Moors and the east coast seaside towns of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey, this attractive cottage is well placed for a varied and interesting holiday.
