Housemartins Cottage description

Situated adjacent to the owner’s home, this single-storey holiday cottage provides spacious open plan accommodation, attractively presented bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom. The enclosed garden is ideal for dogs, and guests are welcome to enjoy the small well-stocked fishing pond, free of charge. There is also a delightful summerhouse in the garden, with a fridge and microwave, which guests can use which overlooks the pond, making a peaceful place to relax, watch the birds and admire the well-tended gardens. Haxby is just one mile from the cottage and has a wide range of convenient amenities and regular buses providing easy access into the ancient city of York. With world-renowned attractions, regular festivals, exquisite architecture and a busy racecourse, York appeals to all ages. Visit the iconic minster, the Railway Museum and Clifford’s Tower, walk the city walls and stroll along the cobbled streets. There are river boat trips, street entertainers and ghost walks, alongside an abundance of inns, restaurants and traditional teashops. The city centre is packed with interesting and individual shops and out of town shopping is easily accessible at the Designer Outlet, Monks Cross and Vangarde. The cottage provides an ideal base from which to explore the wider area where stately homes can be found at Castle Howard and Beningbrough Hall, a World Heritage Site at Fountains Abbey, quaint villages in the Howardian Hills and stunning scenery in the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. The coastal towns of Filey, Scarborough and Whitby are all within an hour’s drive.
