The Experience

Families will be very happy here with plenty of space in the sitting room with its big shelves full of books, toys and games. A wood-burning stove (logs provided) keeps you warm, you’re guarded by a civil war suit of armour (the owners are passionate about the history of this area) and surrounded by bold colours and local art. 

The kitchen is very well equipped with all the basics for cooking and a generous welcome hamper with bacon, eggs, bread, biscuits and wine. You eat at the beautiful oak table in the separate dining room with a fire blazing on chilly evenings. Or saunter down to The Blacksmith Arms and have a pint while the children play in the village field.

You have your own private walled garden at the back, a sun-trap during the day, and with table, chairs and a family-sized barbecue.  Explore God’s own country then sleep peacefully in neat-as-a-pin bedrooms with plush beds and garden views.

As soon as we walked in through the door of Yew Tree Cottage we felt at home! Aromatic natural hand sanitiser greeted us along with a sparkling clean cottage, quality furnishings and a lovely welcome hamper. So Covid-19 secure, even the welcome advice leaflets were placed inside plastic sheets in small ring binders. Home from home and in such a peaceful setting with a great pub just a couple of doors away. We will be returning if not just to enjoy the well designed garden area.

Wendy, Bury St Edmunds

A lovely, well-presented stone cottage in a pleasant village location. A perfect base for exploring some attractive towns (notably, Helmsley and Malton), beautiful countryside (eg the Howardine HIlls) and unspoilt beaches at Filey Bay. The cottage itself has been lovingly updated, was clean and very well-equipped. An efficient log burner with a generous supply of logs ensured that the cottage was warm and cosy on colder evenings. Highly recommended.

Geoff, Chichester

A lovely medieval village and a very comfortable cottage to enjoy it all from. Great to have an excellent pub two doors away and the food capital of Yorkshire, Malton just four miles. Stock up with great local food and return to an excellent kitchen or a barbecue in the garden.

The neighbourhood

There are walking paths from this medieval village straight into the Yorkshire Wolds and an AONB. Malton - a market town and the food capital of Yorkshire - is a 10-minute drive for restaurants, cafes, a big farmers' market and artisan food. There are still livestock sales in the street during the week. You're 25 minutes from York, near the Moors and Dales, and the coast is under an hour.

Natasha McCabe

Natasha is from Australia but has lived over here for a long time. Her husband Paul is from Whitby and they both love this village and the cottage - they lived here themselves while they were doing the restoration. They've moved back to London now because of work but this is still their holiday home and they are happy to share it.
