Peaceful country getaway near York & Castle Howard, Pet Friendly, Free Wifi

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Oct-2016
Tranquil & Scenic Woodland Setting Ideal For A Getaway Country Retreat near York. Dog friendly too!

A luxury one bed roomed rural apartment (with 2nd bedroom option) and art studio which is spacious and fully self contained on the ground floor of a detached annexe to the rear of our B&B, an 18th century Woodsmans cottage. Sitting 300 feet above the city of York on a wooded hillside that lies between two castles. The dramatic ruins of King Richard III’s Sheriff Hutton Castle and the Baroque majesty of Castle Howard (famous as the location for the film and TV series Brideshead Revisited). Off the beaten track with big views over the Yorkshire Wolds & the Vale Of York, yet just 10 miles away from the ancient walled city of York. Our guests say they really love the peace and quiet here after a days sightseeing in York or the coast and we get lots of positive feedback about what a great nights sleep they enjoyed in our King Size & Super King Size beds with memory foam toppers. The apartment has marble tiled floors with under floor heating for a very cosy winter break or a cool summer holiday style apartment. Bring your dog/s along too as we are pet friendly and surrounded by scenic traffic free woods and fields to walk the dog in. There is a charge of just £10 per dog stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Svanprehn (Cambridge) - "Just had the most relaxing and romantic weekend with my boyfriend...very tastefully decorated and fitted with all the essentials (and more!)."

SueAshK (Derby) - booked both rooms -self catering facilities but also had breakfast...Throughly enjoyable break which was down to a combination of fantastic location, quality accommodation and the helpful and friendly attitude of Kim and Richard -the owners. I would not hesitate to stop at the Brush and Boot again.

Helen (Twickenham) - stayed at the Brush and Boot with my 5 year old daughter and my parents...we thoroughly enjoyed our time...very welcoming and spotlessly clean with wonderful bathrooms..setting is wonderful, about 3 miles away from Castle Howard its an easy drive south to York or north into the N York Moors. Kim, who is an artist, kindly left out special drawing things for my daughter which she loved I would thoroughly recommend the Brush and Boot to couples, families, friends or travelling solo.

Arrived here for a little getaway and couldn't be more perfect

We were greeted by really friendly and polite owners who made us feel very welcome.

Place is absolutely fantastic with comfortable bed and amenities, the heated floor is so nice to walk onto on cold mornings. Very close to york town centre and lots of places to visit.

Thanks to Richard, Kim and Ruby the dog for making it possible :)

Will definitely be back again soon

Love
