About Alec Welham

We moved to Long Marston in late spring 2014 to pursue a self-sufficient lifestyle in the country. As avid gardeners we grow as much fruit and veg' as we can fit on the land. We have won many awards for our vegetables including the National Vegetable Society Championships at Harrogate in September 2015 and 2016.

We also have hand- reared ducks, chickens and turkeys in our garden.

Alec Welham purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Alec Welham chose York

The Cottage is set in beautiful rural surroundings in the heart of North Yorkshire just 6 miles from the City of York.

Built on the historic site of the Battle of Marston Moor with rolling countryside in every direction.

The main cottage originally dates back to 1644 and maintains the original charm of this period. Although the self-contained apartment was built as part of an extension centuries later, its features sympathetically reflect the style of the house.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is ideally situated in the small village of Long Marston, 5 miles from the A1 M and the historic market town of Wetherby.

York is accessible within a 15 minute drive, or a 20 minute bus journey will take you to York train station and the City Centre.

Harrogate is just a 25 minute car journey, famous for its Victoria architecture, Roman baths, and Betty’s Tea Rooms.

Knaresborough is also just a 15 minute car journey to explore the Castle, Mother Shiptons cave, or take a row boat along the river.

Spacious cottage flat with open views to the back. Clean and tidy with all the necessary equipment.

  • 5 of 5

Had a warm welcome from the owners Alec and Chris, with a good explanation of local history and amenities. The flat was clean and ready to move in to, the bed is comfortable with towels provided. The village pub is a short walk away, where the landlord is friendly, the pub is dog friendly though you do have to stay in the Tap Room, which is comfortable and cosy. York is a great place to visit with plenty to do, Alec explained how to get to the Park and Ride, which is worth using. Chris gave us some eggs from their chickens who live in their wonderful garden. Would definitely recommend staying here.

comfortable and friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Alec met us when we arrived, took us to the flat, explained all sorts of things, and was there if we needed anything - they live next door. The flat was comfortable, roomy and very clean and there was a lot of info about the area as well as the flat.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your time at the cottage and that you and your family had a comfortable stay. We refrained from charging more in school holidays to allow families to have a good time and of course the additional bed settees and linen are at no extra charge. Kind regards
