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.

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. Get comfortable in one of Yew Tree Cottage’s three downstairs living spaces. Make a favourite family meal in the kitchen, where you’ll find a full welcome basket with fresh bread, butter, milk, eggs, bacon, tea, coffee, cake and a complimentary bottle of wine – all sourced from local farmers and bakers. To make cooking even easier, expect to find a well-stocked pantry and refrigerator. Toss a few pieces of pre-cut firewood into the wood-burning stove, and hunker down in the family room with one of the many DVDs or a PS2 game. And in the dining room, gather around the solid oak rectory table, which is also ideal for playing board games or putting together jigsaw puzzles late into the evening. If you’ve got little ones in tow, there’s no need to worry: Toddler toys, a high chair, plastic cutlery, a travel cot, and other kid-friendly gear are all freely available for your use. We even supply extra nappies, a steriliser and bottle warmer! We know what it's like to pack for children and have tried to ensure the home is equipped with everything you might need. At night, claim a stylish bedroom to call your own. The master bedroom features a super king-sized bed, the cottage’s original fireplace and other high-end touches, and the guest bedroom boasts a double bed and beautiful views across the fields. A large third double bedroom has 2 ziplink singles which can be joined to make one large double and there's also the cottage library – perfect for anyone who needs a bit of space to call their own. (Don’t worry: A great selection of books and magazines means you’ll never be bored!) A downstairs toilet as well as a well-appointed bathroom on the second floor offer ample room to spread out and freshen up. Prepare to be spoiled with a traditional roll-top bath/shower, underfloor heating and complimentary Aesop bathroom products with hints of ginger root and geranium fragrances. Throw open the patio door to find Yew Tree Cottage’s lavish details spilled out into your own private garden. On sunny days, take advantage of the barbeque grill and dine outside in style at the outdoor dining table. Come night, soak in the starry skies, which escape unscathed from city light. Of course, Yew Tree Cottage’s prominent location in the heart of a typical Yorkshire village is simply a bonus to this already spectacular property. Positioned close to a pub and within easy reach of the coast, moors and dales, it’s the perfect place for a day of exploring. And don't miss the chance to explore the local market town of Malton - Yorkshire’s Food Capital - just a few minutes away. Beyond the attention to physical details, your holiday at Yew Tree Cottage is seamless from the moment you make contact about a stay. Don’t be surprised by how simple it is to truly kick back and relax. After all, this is your hard-earned holiday.More
