About the Cottage

Superbly situated by the River Derwent with fishing rights from the garden and riverbank, this delightful conversion, formerly a mill, has been lovingly refurbished to a particularly high standard, offering excellent holiday accommodation for families and couples alike. The master bedroom houses a 4 poster bed, en-suite bathroom and views over the garden and river, whilst the lounge hosts a woodburning stove - a must for those cooler evenings! This peaceful setting is perfect for those who simply wish to relax and unwind, whilst handy for exploring the coastal resort of Scarborough, some 3 miles away, the historic City of York, an hour's drive and the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors National Park, often referred to as 'Heartbeat Country'. Numerous attractions in the area will suit all age groups, from golden beaches, Scarborough's historic Spa and South Bay, children's amusements and fairground. From River Cottage, a quiet lane leads to the main road with numerous shops including a post office, chemist and homemade cake and pie shop. Two pubs and a fish restaurant are also within easy walking distance, or if you wish to drive, a further selection is available en route to Scarborough. Around a mile from the cottage are Irton Manor Stables, for those of you who may fancy a Horse riding lesson and approx a mile and a half away in the opposite direction are the Wykeham Lakes where there is fishing and boating/sailing in beautiful surroundings.

Corporate Team Building days/nights and weekends are welcome.
