It’s charming, old, quirky and stylish; its original features, tasteful décor and home comforts sit side by side.
Spring Cottage’s location is so quiet (you may hear the odd owl hooting at night). Making it the perfect escape from the busy outside world.
Explore historic houses such as Castle Howard, enjoy traditional pubs (The Grapes Inn, our village pub is just a short stroll away), visit pretty villages and market towns such as Pickering, Malton and Helmsley. Experience the unspoilt countryside of the nearby North York Moors. And the coast, with its towns such as Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay is only 25 miles away.
If, that is, you can drag yourself away from the cottage and its beautiful garden!
The country cottage garden has been professionally landscaped with a patio, two circular lawns and flower beds. At the end of the garden you'll find a vegetable patch and some fruit bushes (help yourself if you're staying there when in season) and swings for juniors. There are also some herbs in pots, to use as you rustle up supper. Peace and tranquility guaranteed! And bird song is all you'll hear when you're sat on the patio with your early evening g&t.
There's private parking for two cars (nose to tail) by the side of the cottage.
You enter the cottage through the small lobby, with an every-so-handy downstairs loo. This leads into the family room. We give it this name as it's more than a kitchen-diner. There's a sofa, tv (and wii console) and stereo in here too. So it's a second living space with patio doors onto the garden. The separate wooden-beamed lounge is where you'll find the log burner. Again it has double doors onto the garden. It's such a cosy space to unwind in, whether you're enjoying a cuppa, or a glass of wine , or watching a dvd, in front of the fire.
First Floor Description
Both bedrooms and the family bathroom are on the first floor. The king-size master bedroom is surprisingly spacious. The twin room is charming and suitable for children or adults who want the comfort of their own bedroom. The window seat in the twin room is the perfect spot to read your book from, with views over the garden and farmer's fields beyond.
The bathroom includes a roll top bath and a separate shower cubicle. And we leave complimentary locally-made lavender oil toiletries for you to enjoy.
Window Views Description
The garden is in view from all living spaces and both bedrooms. Beyond it are farm fields. Sometimes crops are grown or sometimes you may see sheep or curious cows at the other side of the hedge! From the bathroom, lie in the bath and gaze at the stars through the skylight window.
