#2 of 2 B&Bs / Inns in Stittenham
A charming, former Woodsman's, country cottage, luxury retreat set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just 25 minutes drive to York and 3 miles from Castle Howard (famous as location of Brideshead Revisited) and Richard III's Sheriff Hutton Castle. Beautiful views, great walks, abundant wildlife, peace and tranquility mean you can "get away from it all" and still enjoy all York has to offer.

We love this place! So quiet and peaceful and everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Kim and Richard are very friendly hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The apartment had been thoroughly cleaned so felt confident staying here. The breakfast was delicious - especially the home-made plum jam. Would definitely stay again. Would recommend a visit to Castle Howard. The grounds are beautiful. Also had an amazing meal at the Queen's Head at Amotherby - Cantonese food, well worth a visit.

Booked the Boot room (loft room above a separate apartment, which can also be used as a full cottage). We booked this in January 2020 before the pandemic and suubsequent lockdown, as our base for Castle Howard's Last Night of the Proms event which sadly did not take place this year. We have camped, stayed in various lodges and static caravans during our many visits to the prom but this time as our ages have increased found this little gem of a b and b set within 2 miles of the castle. Thank god we did. It more than met our expectations. One enormous bed, big enough to maintain social distancing lol. Small hotel style fridge, tv, kettle and toaster etc. We opted for the small breakfast which was ace. Farmhouse bread, crumpets, home made yoghurts, cereals, home made jam, fresh fruit. Cafetierre coffee as well as the most instant coffee and what else but Yorkshire tea!!!. We were messaged by our hosts to say that we would be checking ourselves into the unit as a result of the rules regarding b and b's reopening which we did but were greeted at the gate by Richard and then Kim who offered to help us with our bits of luggage. What a lovely, friendly and approachable couple they are. The Brush and Boot is located in a gorgeous area with very few neighbours and is ideal for people wanting a quiet holiday away from everything but many facilities exist within a 5/6 mile area anyway. I have to mention The Geapes Inn at Slingsby were we ate with our daughter and her partner, who were camping a couple of miles away. 4 meals and drinks and only came to just over £64 - bargain or what. As regards the Brush and Boot, we wouldn't hesitate to book again in we are visiting the area.

Thank you so much...that is really very kind of you to take the time to write such a lovely review. Kim and I are very grateful and also so “chuffed” that you have found us now and we will both look forward to seeing you again sometime, perhaps the next Prom in 2021. Very best wishes to you both. Richard & Kim

Stayed five days in October 2019. Will definitely return. We were able to take our two house cats, what a beautiful property. Everything you could need and more. All conceivable needs were met to a very high standard. Spotless clean throughout. Although it was a chilly time of year we were toasty warm with the underfloor heating. Well stocked kitchen with toaster, microwave, even washing up liquid and tea towel. I would say just bring your clothes and food. All linen is provided including bathroom towels. The hosts Richard and Kim were lovely and when we arrived we had forgotten milk. Richard came back with milk and some of Kim’s plum jam, we will be booking again. The area is so beautiful and so quiet. TV and DVD player in cottage, only a short journey to York city. A chip shop and Tesco express, chemist, pubs all in small village 10minutes drive away.

Visiting with family neaby in Welburn, the Brush & Boot was the perfect place to stay for a few nights. Quiet, comfortable, with everything you need. Richard and Kim very responsive and helpful. Great location for visiting Castle Howard and nearby villages and walking.

The Brush and Boot is a hidden gem tucked away in the Yorkshire Howardian Hills. Kim and Richard give you a warm welcome and are there if needed for anything, otherwise you are left alone. The loft room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We had the continental breakfast which was left in the room : homemade jam, butter, milk, fresh orange, fruit and homemade fruit and yogurt pots. Cereal, biscuits, tea and coffee on a tray and all equipment required was available. We liked the freedom of being able to get up in the morning at our leisure and the sound of sheep occasionally made this a very relaxing and enjoyable break.
