Set close to a peaceful 100-acre private estate, River Cottage is a charming 2-bedroom / 2-bathroom country cottage with attractive interiors and an idyllic rural location.

This cottage has everything you could need for a relaxing break in gorgeous corner of Yorkshire. It’s beautifully furnished and set betwixt the two grand Yorkshire Estates of Sandhall and Saltmarshe – the perfect escape to the country!

At the heart of the single storey property is a lovely living / dining room which has pretty pastel tones and a free-standing wood-burning fire to make things nice and cosy. Take your pick from a choice of comfortable seating and settle down in front of the wall-mounted TV with DVD player. There’s a side table and chair which can double up as a desk if you can’t bear to leave your laptop behind or want to write out some postcards to friends.

Everyone can eat together at the oblong dining table and the comfortable high backed chairs mean you can linger and chat a while after dinner.

Oak wood flooring continues from the living area into the large country kitchen next door where there are lots of chic white units around this square shaped room. You’ll also find plenty of space on the solid wooden worktops to chop, grind, and mix, whether you are creating a light picnic lunch or a 3-course gourmet dinner! Appliances available within this spacious family kitchen include gas oven, and hob, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave plus an assortment of other pots, pans and utensils.

There are two bedrooms at River Cottage which are both light and bright with neutral carpets and cream walls. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and fitted wardrobes which provide plenty of storage to keep things tidied away. An en-suite shower room means you can roll straight out of bed for a refreshing morning shower before striking out for a day exploring the Wolds.

A second bedroom, this time a twin, is just down the hall with full sized beds that are suitable for either children or adults who prefer their own space. A range of painted furniture again provides lots of storage and a separate shower room can be easily accessed from this room.

Outside River Cottage there is a paved patio area with rattan furniture, so you can make the most of your lovely location and eat al fresco when the weather is nice.
