Step inside Yew Tree Cottage, and close your eyes. Smell the fresh bacon and eggs delivered from the local organic butcher sizzling in the kitchen. Hear the crackling wood-burning stove, which heats the family room and beyond. Feel the cool, renovated wood floors beneath your feet and nearly 300 years of history built into the walls. Quite simply, Yew Tree Cottage is a delight for the senses.

Ideal for families or couples in need of a break from the professional city life, Yew Tree Cottage sleeps up to 6 guests. Meticulously renovated and mindfully decorated, this one-of-a-kind country retreat embodies luxury living both inside and out. Natural materials, warm hues, subdued patterns, tasteful artwork and carefully selected fabrics create a classic, cosy British vibe with a nod to the surrounding environment and years gone by.

Perfect location as you are not far from York but also close enough to the coast to visit areas such as Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay. Gorgeous cottage with lots of character-spacious but still cosy with a lovely wood burner which we used each evening. Perfect for families, child friendly, with lots of extra amenities which you often need with...

I can't praise this cottage enough, gorgeous Interior, very very clean and comfortable. Everything you could need has been thought out and added to the cottage for a truly wonderful stay. It's ideally located in a quaint little village with everything a short drive away, York, whitby, Filey etc. If you book this cottage you really won't be disappointed.

This cottage is one of our favourites, hence the return visit! It is very well equipped, cosy and decorated to a high standard, plus there is a very welcome hamper on arrival. The Blacksmiths Pub, almost next door, does great food and is a bonus to have on your doorstep after a day exploring the surrounding area. The cottage is...

About the neighbourhood
Located in the heart of the picturesque, timewarp village of Westow, it's close to the city of York, on the edge of the Wolds and Moors and in easy reach of the stunning coast line and all the area has to offer.

Wherever you are coming from, getting to Yew Tree Cottage couldn't be easier - and the roads to the cottage take you through some of our most stunning scenery.

Much of the village, including Yew Tree Cottage is designated a conservation area, in recognition of the need to preserve the attractiveness of the settl...
