Thank you so much for sharing your lovely house with us -so spacious, well equipped and in such a beautiful spot. Everything we needed for a family birthday celebration including table tennis to entertain all ages and good wifi!
Perfect in every way. Landlords provided for every necessity and more. Lovely, squeaky clean, gorgeous view, modern unit.
We enjoyed three wonderful days in beautiful Yorkshire, so much to see and do from York Minster to the moors and dales and the seaside all within an easy drive. We will be back.
Stayed with my disabled mother, for whom downstairs bedroom and ensuite were perfect. Very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped property in a quiet hamlet in delightful area: perfect for people who like history (Richard III's castle nearby as well as Castle Howard), gardens, good food, cosy pubs, ...
That Lady was lovely who looked after us and that place was beautiful and in a lovely peaceful atmosphere.
The furniture was covered in dust, you could write your name it. The bar was closed itt is used to serve breakfast in only, this should be mentioned in the description.. The rubbish bin in bedroom had not been emptied, bed linen smelling of damp, breakfast awful very cheap ingredients except bacon. ...
It was very easy to book, I asked for more information on retrieving the key which was given really well as the owners were very nice. It was only 15 minutes away from a shopping complex which was amazing and very handy! Will definitely plan on staying there again!
North Yorkshire is the largest county in Britain, giving visitors plenty of space for adventure. Amidst the vast swathes of awesome countryside and historic towns and cities, the county can boast some of England's finest stately homes. One such property is Castle Howard, a famous property located some 15 miles to the north of York. Set in some of the county's most scenic parts, Castle Howard is within easy reach of some of the best hotels in North Yorkshire.
Castle Howard is not actually, as the name suggests, a castle. However, it is one of the most magnificent stately homes in all of the United Kingdom, built on the site of a former castle. The stunning mansion is a Grade I listed building which will be familiar to fans of Evelyn Waugh, for it has been featured as Brideshead in numerous adaptations for both television and film.
Construction on the property started back in 1699, though it wouldn't be completed for more than 100 years. After passing through the hands of several wealthy families, the impressive property is now open to members of the public.
The mansion itself may be something special, but it's not all there is on the site. Castle Howard is set within a whopping 1,000 acres of parkland and gardens, making it an ideal place to visit on warm summer afternoons. Around the site visitors will find a lake, flower gardens, an epic water fountain and even some rich vegetable patches. There's a shop on the site, as well as a café and a well-stocked garden centre. The attraction really does offer something for all the family, with an adventure playground down by the water.
Sitting in the peaceful North Yorkshire countryside, just to the north of York, Castle Howard is close to some excellent hotels and guesthouses. The Cresswell Arms is a traditional yet luxurious inn located just six miles from Castle Howard in Appleton-le-Street. Guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast each morning, as well as free WiFi.
There are plenty more hotels to choose from in nearby York, including some well-known brands.
