Overview

About the property

Beautiful 2 Bed & 2 Bath Garden Cottage- Newly furnished to a very high standard

Garden Cottage forms part of a beautiful detached 200 year old grade II listed farmhouse, situated in the tiny hidden hamlet of Little Habton, Malton, North Yorkshire. Our cottage makes an ideal base to explore from; just 10 minutes from the historic market towns of Malton, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside, Helmsley and a stones throw away from Castle Howard.

Overlooking beautiful gardens, and with views of the North Yorkshire Moors, Garden Cottage has been furnished to a high standard with 2 en suite bedrooms, spacious sitting room with a log burner for those cozy winter nights in, and an elegant shaker kitchen with granite worktops and all the mod cons. There's an enclosed garden with garden furniture for those lovely summer evenings, and alfresco dining... In fact it’s quite a sun trap.

There are numerous walks and cycling trails, which can be found in the surrounding area of the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and close by are several renowned country pubs, including The Black Swan at Olstead and The Star, Harome, both of which have Michelin Stars. There is also an abundance of excellent traditional pubs in the area where visitors can sample real ales and generous Yorkshire hospitality.

Castle Howard is just 5 miles away, a magnificent 18th century historic house (film and TV location for Brideshead & more) with art collections, concerts, and a range of interesting events, woodland and riverside walks, a restaurant and farm shop. The ancient city of York (40 minutes) is easily accessible and here visitors can wander along the cobbled streets, admire the ancient architecture, walk along the city walls and cruise along the River Ouse. Visit the beautiful Minster, the National Railway Museum and the Viking Centre or just enjoy al fresco dining by the riverside and watch the world go by. It is also home to an exciting racecourse at the Knavesmire. Visit abbey ruins at Kirkham Priory and Rievaulx, and National Trust houses at Beningbrough and Nunnington Hall or explore the quaint market towns of Malton, Easingwold, Pickering and Helmsley. The North Yorkshire Moors including the Steam Railway, The Dales and the traditional coastal towns of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey are all within an hour’s drive. There’s also good public transport on hand.

We welcome children aged 5 years and over.

About Lucy Haxton

James and I live next door to Garden Cottage, with our 2 dogs Molly and Bumble. James is a property developer and i work in property rentals.

Lucy Haxton purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Lucy Haxton chose Malton

We fell in love with Habton House as soon as we saw it, it's a beautiful property in a very peaceful secluded location, yet it's not too far from civilisation! We moved here in 2009 and we renovated the house initially as a 3 bedroom B&B and latterly as a 2 bed holiday cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Lovely countryside, peace and quiet, a very homely comfortable cottage with everything you could wish for (we hope!!).

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely lovely stay me and my family had. The cottage is situated in beautiful surroundings and we were able to take a walk and pick apples, pears and plums from the trees. It was so quiet which makes a change from our home in Saltburn. Upon arrival we were met by Bumble the dog, who was gorgeous, and Lucy had provided a lovely welcome basket with fresh eggs, milk, homemade marmalade, bread and fresh coffee - a very lovely thought. So close to Eden Camp and Flamingoland, as well as other attractions. We would absolutely stay here again, in fact I would live here! Thanks so much for a wonderful break.

A Little Yorkshire Gem!

  • 5 of 5

James and Lucy have spared no expense in turning this cosy cottage into a place to unwind and enjoy, the fixtures and fittings are to such a high standard and we even got a lovely welcome pack of local produce on arrival, we enjoyed evenings in by the log fire and had a lovely meal out at The Grapes in Great Hatton, Eden camp,Castle Howard, Malton, Pickering, and Helmsley all lovely and on the Doorstep! What more could you want or need for a great break in this beautiful part of the country! Thank you so much James and Lucy, we will return!

The property and fittings were first rate.

  • 4 of 5

First rate in pretty well everything.

But you - HomeAway - are not first rate.Your system is clunky, one dimensional and very often unhelpful. Letters have to use you because you are dominant but you are certainly a pain to renters!
