You can also take a nice circular walk from Crayke village itself to the Dutch House, located just under a mile away. Only 100 yards away from the property, the award-winning Durham Ox gastropub offers an irresistible menu crafted from local produce. Further afield, the North York Moors play host to an unbeatable network of footpaths and cycle routes.

Stepping inside, this charming accommodation features an open-plan design, boasting high ceilings and wide patio doors letting in lots of glorious light. Make your way to the sofa with a fresh brew and sink right into it. From here you can look through the patio doors onto the deck and gardens beyond. For rainy days and cosy evenings, a TV and DVD player are the perfect excuse to curl up together and watch a film. Wi-Fi is also provided so you can keep your friends and family updated. When you are ready to dig into your welcome hamper and rustle up some lunch, the kitchen is equipped with all you could need. With a ceramic hob, oven, microwave and fridge with icebox, you can serve your drinks cool and your meals hot. For ultimate convenience, you also have access to a washing machine, dryer and freezer in a separate building next to the property. To make your meal an occasion, you can choose between the dining area next to the kitchen or the deck's outdoor table and chairs. When the land of nod calls, the bedroom awaits with a luxurious king-size bed that can also be made into two singles if you prefer. Enjoying an en-suite shower room complete with snuggly bathrobes, you can relax in style in your home-from-home.

Outside, the private decked balcony is sure to be a firm favourite. With table and chairs and picturesque views, it's the ideal spot to crack open a bottle of fizz and toast to a wonderful holiday.

A pleasant cottage in a lovely area with an excellent pub within walking distance. Owner provided a nice welcome basket. Only criticism would be the kitchen area which was very small and had little storage or work surfaces.

A beautiful cottage in the perfect location! We've visited Yorkshire for a few years running now, and this was by far the best placed of the cottages we've stayed in. A beautiful village not too far from York itself, with a pub which served great food. Owner!SELECTED! !ENDOFSELECTED!went out of her way to help us, even taking in a parcel of forgottRead moreen items we had to get sent up! The cottage itself is a great size for 2 with adequate cooking facilities, great internet, and a spectacular view over the Vale of York. Hide
