  • "The location of this cottage is perfect for a real retreat."

    We enjoyed walks up the Wold from the front door each day and then a short car journey takes you to local points of interest. Filey beach is perfect for children and dogs with lots of space to run around. Whitby Abbey is near enough to travel to and well worth a visit. The accommodation has a nice outdoor space and cosy sofas and an open fire which mades for nice evenings around the fire playing games.

  • "Clara's cottage is just lovely!"

    So cosy, peaceful and well equipped to make for a very relaxing and comfortable break. The booking process was quick and easy and the owner was very welcoming when she called to confirm key arrangements. This is an old cottage and is therefore not pristine, but that was no issue for us as it was clean and I felt able to completely relax and enjoy being there (I didn't want to leave!) The area is incredibly quiet and surrounded by stunning countryside with the beautiful coast only a short drive away.

  • "The cottage was in a lovely small village with beautiful walks."

    The cottage it’s self was clean with plenty of furniture and all the added extras. The garden was a lovely place to relax in the sun even in October. The beds were really comfy and plenty of room to walk around. The bath was lovely with a lovely spa bath. The welcome basket was a nice surprise

  • "The cottage was even better than advertised - lots of space both inside and out (five adults and a baby), the huge kitchen being especially handy and well equipped."

    Would definitely visit again - possibly in cold weather next time to make the most of the cosy fire!

The property

This delightful Grade II listed cottage is situated in the charming, rural village of West Lutton, in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds and close to the towns of Driffield, Malton and Scarborough.

Built around 1801 as an estate workers’ cottage, this superb property is an ideal base for families and friends wishing not only to explore the Wolds, but also the stunning North York Moors National Park, the Hambleton Hills, The Howardian Hills, the stunning coast and even the historic city of York, which is just 50 minutes' drive away.

You can leave your car on the cottage's wooden bridge over the pretty Gypsey Race stream.

Once you have parked up and gone inside, you will find a holiday home that caters for all your needs, with character features throughout, including exposed beams and fireplaces.

There is also the added bonus of modern features including BT Infinity WiFi and BT TV.

The kitchen has everything you require to rustle up a tasty breakfast before venturing out for the day, or a heart-warming meal in the evening, which can then be enjoyed in the dining room with feature fireplace.

On chilly evenings, you can relax in the snug sitting room whilst the logs on the warming woodburning stove crackle away.

Alternatively, summer nights can be spent enjoying an alfresco meal, or curling up and unwinding in the summerhouse with a cold drink and good book.

On the first floor are three bedrooms, including the master king-size double with an apex ceiling and feature fireplace, and the bathroom has an electric shower and a deep whirlpool bath, perfect for resting those achy legs after long walks out and about in the Wolds.

Nestled in the beautiful Great Wold Valley, West Lutton has an historic church and a dog-friendly pub, The Three Tuns, which is just a two minute walk from the cottage and serves great beer and home-cooked food.

The Blue Bell and The Star in nearby Weaverthorpe are both also excellent choices for dining out, as is The Triton Inn in the beautiful estate village of Sledmere.

There is a good farm shop at Sledmere as well as Butterwick, both only a few miles away.

The gentle, undulating Yorkshire Wolds, stretching from the River Humber to the south to the chalk cliffs of Flamborough Head are ideal for walking and cycling, and are well worth exploring.

There’s plenty to see and do in the area, including the historic properties of Castle Howard, Sledmere House and Deer Park, Burton Agnes Hall and Gardens, the RSPB reserve at Bempton near Flamborough, the coastal resorts of Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough and Whitby.

Inland there’s Thirsk, Helmsley, Easingwold, Pickering and of course York.

A wonderful Wolds cottage for a varied break.

About the location

WEST LUTTON

Driffield 10 miles; Malton 11 miles; Scarborough 15 miles.

West Lutton is a small, pretty, rural village situated in the open countryside of the rolling Yorkshire Wolds. The village has one pub, but close by is the village of Weatherthorpe, which has a shop, Post Office and two excellent inns. Ideally located, West Lutton is just a short drive from the delightful historic market towns of Malton and Driffield, while the east coast resorts of Filey, Bridlington and Scarborough, with their long, safe, sandy beaches and seaside amenities, are also easily accessible. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking, cycling and touring, with many outstanding inns, stately homes and open gardens to visit. A day out in the medieval, walled city of York, with its famous minster and Jorvik Viking Centre is well worth a visit, as is the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway at Pickering.
