Apple Tree Cottages at Saltmarshe

Guests will receive a phone call which will advise them of changes due to Coronavirus for example arrival times are now an hour later to give us longer to clean and departure times an hour earlier, and all non essential items have been removed from all cottages.

Our cottages are a comfortable, well-furnished home-from-home for all the family, including the dog. Three beautifully converted Victorian farm stables offer attractive, peaceful accommodation on a working arable farm.

A superb base for the perfect Yorkshire holiday, the cottages are 10 minutes from the delightful market towns of Howden and Selby and within easy distance to the cities of Hull, Leeds and York.

Cyclists can take advantage of the popular routes of the Trans Pennine Trail and Sustrans cycle networks. With easy access to numerous rambling and hiking paths, guests can explore Saltmarshe Delph Nature Reserve, the River Ouse and the Yorkshire Wolds, or venture further to the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Each cottage is self-catering and fully equipped to suit the modern family featuring Wi-Fi and outdoor space.

There are two bedrooms, one at each end of the cottage, with private bathrooms, and super king size beds, making it a perfect layout for two couples.

River Cottage is perfect for family breaks, with an enclosed garden for your dogs. The charming accommodation has two bedrooms, one king size with en-suite and one twin room with separate shower room. The kitchen is well equipped and separate from the large living/dining room.

Yew Tree Cottage is the perfect location for a romantic getaway. Its unique layout comprises one bedroom, with a mezzanine level, a large living area including a high, vaulted ceiling, a well-equipped kitchen and a wood burner. The cottage is also dog friendly with an enclosed outdoor area.

Apple Tree Cottages are family-owned and run by John and Vivienne who’ve lived at The Dairy Farm as tenants since they were married in 1968. The land was previously owned by the Saltmarshe family who had received it from William the Conqueror as a reward for services rendered.

Apple Tree Cottages are situated on a working arable farm. Initially a dairy farm, the only livestock now on-site is the family’s dog Rufus and a few of the neighbour’s sheep. Rufus is very friendly and loves to go for a walk with our guests.

All the surrounding land belongs to the farm and guests are welcome to go for walks, fish in the ponds or bring a bicycle to explore this beautiful area.

“Recently attended a wedding nearby and stayed overnight at this beautiful farmhouse the accommodation was excellent and a great breakfast to set us up for the day and such a lovely couple made our stay welcome”
