    “Absolutely wonderful property, with extremely hospitable owners.”

    Our group has stayed in numerous properties over the years and this was one of the best we have stayed in. The gorgeous weather definitely added to the weekend and we can't wait to return.

The property

Situated in the rolling countryside fields on the outskirts of Hovingham, in North Yorkshire, is this fabulous, detached white stone cottage.

Tuft House offers friends and families alike the perfect base for a truly rural holiday, with easy access into the North York Moors National Park.

Internally, the cottage has been renovated by the owners to provide a light and welcoming accommodation, with high-quality furnishings throughout.

Upon entering the ground-floor accommodation, you will be greeted into a convenient hallway, where you can store your walking and cycling gear before stepping into the elegantly styled dwelling.

Spend your evening keeping up to date with all your favourite shows and enjoying quality family time in one of the three sittings rooms or use them as a quiet space to read a good book.

Step into the open-plan living space, with a large kitchen which has been furnished to a high-standard, and will inspire you to dust off those cookbooks and indulge in all the modern appliances at hand.

There is a dining area with seating for up to sixteen people, making for a wonderful social space for the whole family to dine together.

All eight bedrooms have a range of modern furnishings, which complement the light decor, and offer an abundance of space to store your personal items, with two of the bedrooms located in the annexe, 20 yards from the main property.

The bedrooms are served by two en-suite bathrooms and two family bathrooms.

Choose from an elegant freestanding roll-top bath and a separate shower cubicle to prepare for your day in style.

To the front of the property is a wonderfully spacious lawned garden and patio area, housing rattan furniture so you can sit out and enjoy the country views in style.

Delight in the provided hot tub, so you can enjoy a relaxing soak of an evening, or indulge in the provided barbecue for large gatherings.

For a taste of history, venture towards the wonderful Castle Howard, set in a thousand acres of sweeping landscaped gardens, with statues, lakes and fountains making it truly exceptional.

Dating back 300 years, it remains a family home and is considered one of the finest historic houses in England.

The Yorkshire Wolds Way offers plenty of pathways for keen walkers and cyclists, stretching across 79 miles with picturesque views along the way.

Discover a range of market towns and villages for viewing or stop off at a traditional Yorkshire pub for a spot of lunch and pick up some of your amenities in the nearby shops and supermarkets.

There is so much in this wonderful area, you won't want to leave!

Use Tuft House as your base for exploring this lovely rural countryside.

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!

Please Note - This property can only accept check in's on a Friday.
