Step inside the cottage and into the warm and welcoming kitchen/dining room. The room is adorned with country-style décor, while the kitchen provides everything you should need to self-cater with ease including an electric oven and hob, a dishwasher, a microwave, a fridge/freezer and a coffee machine. Meanwhile, the six-seater dining table is perfect for savouring delicious meals or planning your next adventure. Homemade bread and artisan pizzas can also be made to order with plenty of notice and at an additional fee if you don't feel like cooking.

Next door, the light and spacious living room has been decorated with a cosy log cabin theme and comprises two large sofas and a Smart TV. There is also a flame-effect fireplace which is ideal for cooler nights.

Head upstairs to the first floor where you will find three beautiful bedrooms, each with an en-suite shower room, a TV and luxurious soft furnishings. There is a zip and link super king bedroom, a king size bedroom and a twin bedroom.

Outside, you will have access to a south-facing terrace and garden with furniture and a charcoal BBQ. The far-reaching views of the Yorkshire Wolds are outstanding and make for a great backdrop when enjoying a delicious alfresco meal or a crisp glass of wine on a sunny evening.
