Beech Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Beech Cottage is a cosy farmhouse annexe, adjoining the owner's property, in open countryside, just 1.5 miles from Stamford Bridge and can sleep two people in one bedroom. The cottage has a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom (accessed via steep cottage stairs), and an open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburner.

Stamford Bridge was a fording point over the River Derwent for a Roman settlement, but nowadays is a town with a selection of shops and restaurants. The village is the site of the Battle of Stamford Bridge on 25 September 1066, which marked the end of the Viking era in Britain.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

This cottage was amazing! The décor was outstanding and very stylish. Overall the property was very well cared for, and finished with underfloor heating, brand new kitchen, appliances and bathroom. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who would like to visit York. It had a lovely character and finished and was spotless throughout. The location was fantastic. It was only 15 minutes from York city centre. Located right in the middle of the countryside with some great views to wake up to in the mornings. The cottage makes for a fantastic romantic retreat. Hope to visit again soon.

There are some very good points about this cottage, but to be honest, the negatives outweigh the positives for us, we would not stay here again. The farm owner’s dogs made us uncomfortable for our whole stay. When we first arrived, they were in a wood slat fenced in area you have to walk close to in order to go the door of the cottage, which is an annexe to the farmhouse. The dogs were fairly aggressive, lunging and growling at us through the fence. The owners were away for the first half of our stay, but we did let their uncle (a very nice man) know about the situation, and he put the dogs in the house. The owners returned 2 days before we left and they let the dogs out a couple of times while we were there, so we had to be on the lookout, as the dogs would run at us, if we were leaving the house or outside at the time. The owners never introduced themselves to us, which has never happened to us in the past, when we have rented other cottages. Would have been nice to have been asked about our stay, perhaps would have put our mind at ease about the dogs. While we can appreciate this is a working farm and dogs are useful for security, if you’re operating a self catering cottage, you do need to look at for your guests’ safety, you can’t have it both ways. The cottage is in a lovely location and you can tell it was built to a high standard, but needs some overall TLC and attention to detail. Bedroom: The mattress is completely worn out, as bad as the worst pull-out sofa bed quality, we got very little sleep as a result. There is black mould along the top of one wall and on the top part of one of the window covers. Otherwise, really nice furnishings, bathroom is lovely, with a nice separate bath and power shower. Lounge/Kitchen (open plan room): Sofa is worn, should be replaced. Kitchen is nice, but missing a few self-catering essentials, such as a toaster! There was a pan provide to grill your toast in the oven, but no oven gloves were supplied.

We stayed here for a week. The cottage is an annex to the farmhouse. The farmhouse is occupied by a couple with a baby girl and two little dogs. It is exactly as described and what you see is what you get. The shower is powerful. The only criticism is that the wifi was quite patchy on mobile devices but connected a bit better on the laptop. The owner was friendly and welcoming. There were two cute little goats in the garden. At night deer roam the track to the cottage. All part of the charm. The cottage is a short drive to Stamford Bridge or about a 50 min walk. York is about 30 min drive away.

The cottage was stunning, so relaxing and warm - the log fire was lovely. The owners were friendly and the location was so quiet and peaceful. I would definitely stay here again!

Beech Cottage is a comfortable little place for two people and a dog on a working well kept farm. Pleasant and friendly farmer and his wife. A very peaceful place with nice walks around the farm land. Ideal if you want peace and quiet in the country, but not far from York centre. Recommended.

The cottage location was perfect - the owners were lovely and willing to help with anything. The cottage was very clean and decorated and furnished to a very high standard - I will be using some of their ideas for some furnishings at home! It was quiet and perfect for us and our dog.

The cottage location was very scenic, and my husband and I found the quietness very relaxing. We liked that it was close to York park and ride.

The cottage was excellent. It was everything we needed; it was cosy and comfortable, beautifully warm and a pleasure to stay in. The owners were very helpful and friendly. It was in a beautiful rural location, we just loved being there, we had no complaints whatsoever.

My partner and I stayed here over Easter 2015 and loved every minute. It was a lovely relaxing break that fully catered for us and our dog. The owners were laid back but helpful. They were not invasive whatsoever and left us to enjoy our stay, but always knowing they were there if we needed them. We absolutely adored the décor of the place, a very quaint characteristic little cottage theme. The bedroom in particular had a very cottagey feel. We particularly loved the the log burner, and so did the dog! The grounds are very well kept and are very welcoming. It is quite rural, so a car is definitely needed, but the cottage is in a perfect location for exploring York. We also did a day trip to Whitby which was perfect in the April sun. Overall, a very enjoyable stay and we have already recommended to our friends and family. Thank you.

We really enjoyed the holiday - the cottage was perfect for both us and our dog. It was comforting to know that the friendly owners lived next door but at no point did we feel imposed upon; we were left alone to enjoy the week. The walks around the local area were fantastic!
