Nestled within the peaceful village of Leavening, just 16 miles north of the popular medieval city of York. This location is a wonderful blend of countryside and town getaway to be enjoyed by the whole family. Step outside your front door to explore the gentle countryside surrounding you before taking respite in the welcoming village pub, located within walking distance of the cottage or travel just 9 miles to visit the historic Castle Howard, sitting in the very heart of the beautiful Howardian Hills. Travel 14 miles north to reach the market town of Pickering and jump on the steam train to the coastal town of Whitby or enjoy a day of family fun at Flamingo Land just 13.5 miles away.

Step inside and make your way through the entrance hall leading into the welcoming lounge. Comfortable sofas surround the traditional wood burner and TV so the entire family can cosy up following a day of exploration. There's a separate snug room complete with TV and pool table; perfect to keep the children entertained. Continue down the hall to reach the contemporary kitchen and dining area. The well-equipped kitchen is home to everything you'll need and more to cook up a storm with the local produce before sitting down to enjoy it as a family in the spacious dining area. Make your way upstairs to take your pick from the four restful bedrooms. The first bedroom boasts its own private staircase, a super king-size bed, and handy en-suite shower room. The remaining bedrooms are accessed via another staircase from the lounge, here you'll find the master bedroom, home to a comfortable king-sized bed and en-suite shower room. The third bedroom is a cosy double, with the fourth a super king-size bedroom. These two rooms share the luxurious house bathroom complete with enormous free-standing bath and walk-in shower, so you can either lose yourself in the bubbles or freshen up with an invigorating shower.

The exterior is as impressive as the interior, step outside to find a large enclosed garden, perfect if you brought the dogs along. Make the most of the outdoor furniture during the warmer months, and of course the wonderful wood-fired hot tub; a true joy no matter the weather. Throw down a blanket and lose yourself in a good book or enjoy a spot of outdoor games with the children, whatever you fancy, there's plenty of space to be appreciated. The cottage also offers off-road parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage is located around 18 miles north of York in Leavening. This sleepy little village is well placed if you want to nip into York for some sightseeing or shopping and be close to the North York Moors for bracing country walks. And if you fancy a pint or dinner out one night, there's a lovely pub in the village which serves excellent pub grub, with lots of fantastic gastro pubs in the area too.

Leavening is set in the rolling Howardian Hills in the southern reaches of the North York Moors. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the southern moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns. The landscape is particularly well-suited to cyclists and walkers with miles of stunning off-road walks and cycle paths in every direction. Nearby Kirkham Abbey, in particular, has some lovely walks along the River Derwent and you can stop for lunch at the local pub. And you also have the Wolds Way nearby to explore.

Castle Howard (18 miles) is an absolute must during your stay. The wonderful series Brideshead Revisited, and now lavish film production was filmed on location here. This quintessentially English tale of forbidden love and loss of innocence set pre WWII, has the perfect backdrop in this magnificent house and gardens.

The handsome town of Malton is also just a few miles away, a destination fast becoming known for its excellent food and drink - home to the renowned Food Lovers Festival as well as fantastic restaurants, an excellent selection of food shops and great food and drink producers. There is a regular livestock market, a traditional market every Saturday and a new Food Lovers Market. The town is filled with charming independent shops as well as some high street favourites. It also has a small family-owned cinema.

A few miles further will take you to the town of Pickering. You can catch a steam train from here taking you all the way to Whitby via some picture-postcard villages and stunning scenery. Pickering itself makes for a relaxing afternoon's mosey with its pretty houses, shops and tearooms.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley is also close by and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering, you'll find a fantastic day spa here; the Verbena Spa. There is a theme park and zoo at Flamingo Land (8 miles) and Eden Camp, a fascinating modern history museum, is 2 miles away. And of course, York itself is just 18 miles away. Explore its maze of cobbled streets, gaze in wonder at the York Minster and indulge with a Fat Rascal at Bettys Tearooms. And with the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Coast all within close reach, there are countless options for day trips.

The bedrooms were beautifully furnished and decorated and the master has an extra treat...a massaging mattress! Fab! The welcome basket was also a lovely treat to arrive to. Advice for others staying at the property would be to come stocked up with food! There are no local shops (not even a small corner shop) and the nearest is about a 20 minute drive away. However, we loved being nice and remote and a very kind neighbour provided us with emergency gravy when we realised we'd forgotten to get some for our Sunday roast! We visited York for the Christmas markets (about a 30 minute drive) and the ladies also visited the Feversham Arms in Helmsley (about 40 minutes away) for a fantastic spa day! Thank you for a wonderful stay, I hope to visit again! Hide
