In summer the two and a half feet solid stone walls provide a cool refuge from too much sun. We want our guests to feel discreetly pampered, so think hotel-standards rather than self catering where you need to bring everything but the kitchen sink! There are no hidden costs only nice surprises! Ideally placed to explore the whole of Yorkshire –it is located in the Vale of York at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds and in Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of the Howardian Hills. It is 5 minutes drive from Castle Howard; 20 minutes from the city of York and 30-40 minutes and from the moors and coast. A centrally located base camp to explore Yorkshire and a luxurious hideaway fir for all seasons.
