Kate’s Cottage is a mid-terraced, stone built cottage set in the heart of the Castle Howard Estate between Malton and Helmsley. This romantic little cottage is packed with character providing the perfect hideaway for a couple who enjoy cycling, walking and exploring this beautiful part of North Yorkshire.

Downstairs provides an open plan living space, with beamed ceilings, stone floors and a traditional window seat offering views out along the village. Comfortable seating surrounds the traditional wood burner, perfect for those cooler winter evenings. The bespoke kitchen is well-equipped with a Belfast sink, granite worktops and a quarry tiled floor. The breakfast bar is adjacent and makes a lovely addition to this sociable space. As with many old Yorkshire cottages, the stairs to the first floor are tucked away behind a wooden door and lead straight into the double bedroom. With views of the village and the luxury of an en-suite with roll top bath and underfloor heating, this part of the cottage really does have a homely feel. To the rear of the property is an enclosed, sheltered courtyard that catches the afternoon sun, a lovely place to just sit and relax with your favourite holiday tipple!

The local village pub is a mere three minute walk from the cottage and is well known for its beer festivals and pizza nights. A visit here is an absolute must during your holiday and the local village shop can provide you with everyday essentials. The magnificent stately home of the Howard family, Castle Howard, is a short drive from the cottage and is home to ITVs ‘Victoria’ programme and of course the filming location of ‘Brideshead Revisited’. A day exploring the house and gardens will be a welcome addition to your holiday itinerary and you simply must try the cakes on offer from one of the tea rooms! The Christmas experience is also one of the very best in the country. There are also other stately homes within 5 miles of the property, including Duncombe Park and Nunnington Hall. Don’t forget the stunning gardens at Helmsley too. The Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is right on your doorstep.

This area is a fantastic base for both cyclists and walkers alike with a large network of footpaths and winding country lanes. Fishing can be found Brick Yard Lakes, Amotherby (at cost), 2 miles away. The famous market towns of both Malton and Helmsley are a few minutes’ drive. Both offer market days around the cobbled squares at their centres as well as a great array of shops to wander in and too many cafés and restaurants to mention. The ancient walled city of York with its beautiful minster and award winning-attractions is only a 20-minute drive away. If you want a little excitement in your holiday, Flamingo Land theme park is close by where you can enjoy the thrills of rollercoasters all day long. This lovely little cottage is tastefully decorated throughout with guests comfort in mind and is just perfect as your holiday home. Shop 400 yards, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    Lovely village although we would have liked a larger shop for supplies. Great walks for dog owners with a secure closed garden, enjoyed our trip to Eden Camp and Castle Howard both a short drive away. Log fire great but costly at £4 a bag but cost of cottage definitely worth our short stay. Post
