Enjoy a taste of country living, set in the Yorkshire Wolds. Cosy living room with quaint range fire, spacious dining room along with the privacy of 3 en-suite bedrooms.
Situated on a 500-acre arable farm on the Sledmere Estate, overlooking the rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds which inspired the famous paintings of David Hockney, this holiday cottage is ideal for couples and groups of friends. Families are welcome but it’s not ideal for small children because of the annexe accommodation. Prices are for 6 people but discounts for smaller parties are available. For a group of 8, utilising the family room, a supplement is applicable. Visitors can enjoy a cosy living room with a quaint range fire and a spacious dining room, 1 first floor double/ family bedroom with en-suite bathroom and 2 annexe ground floor bedrooms; one twin/zip-linked with en-suite shower room and the other double with en-suite wet room. All are fully equipped and tastefully decorated to give you a taste of country living.
You could easily spend an hour or so on our tracks and grass margins and you would see brown hare, partridges, pheasants, yellow hammers and tree sparrows throughout the year. The summer months bring lapwings and skylarks in abundance but our special treat is to catch a glimpse of a family of Barn Owls nesting in one of the owl boxes we’ve put up.
