Truly charming home from home complete with hot tub, perfect to host special family get-togethers. In an enviable location within the picturesque Howardian Hills, with the North York Moors in easy reach.

Nestled within the peaceful village of Leavening, just 16 miles north of the popular medieval city of York. This location is a wonderful blend of countryside and town getaway to be enjoyed by the whole family. Step outside your front door to explore the gentle countryside surrounding you before taking respite in the welcoming village pub, located within walking distance of the cottage or travel just 9 miles to visit the historic Castle Howard, sitting in the very heart of the beautiful Howardian Hills. Travel 14 miles north to reach the market town of Pickering and jump on the steam train to the coastal town of Whitby or enjoy a day of family fun at Flamingo Land just 13.5 miles away.

Step inside and make your way through the entrance hall leading into the welcoming lounge. Comfortable sofas surround the traditional wood burner and TV so the entire family can cosy up following a day of exploration. There's a separate snug room complete with TV and pool table; perfect to keep the children entertained. Continue down the hall to reach the contemporary kitchen and dining area. The well-equipped kitchen is home to everything you'll need and more to cook up a storm with the local produce before sitting down to enjoy it as a family in the spacious dining area. Make your way upstairs to take your pick from the four restful bedrooms. The first bedroom boasts its own private staircase, a super king-size bed, and handy en-suite shower room. The remaining bedrooms are accessed via another staircase from the lounge, here you'll find the master bedroom, home to a comfortable king-sized bed and en-suite shower room. The third bedroom is a cosy double, with the fourth a super king-size bedroom. These two rooms share the luxurious house bathroom complete with enormous free-standing bath and walk-in shower, so you can either lose yourself in the bubbles or freshen up with an invigorating shower.

The exterior is as impressive as the interior, step outside to find a large enclosed garden, perfect if you brought the dogs along. Make the most of the outdoor furniture during the warmer months, and of course the wonderful wood-fired hot tub; a true joy no matter the weather. Throw down a blanket and lose yourself in a good book or enjoy a spot of outdoor games with the children, whatever you fancy, there's plenty of space to be appreciated.

We have recently spent a week at Low Burn cottage. The cottage is fabulous with a real home from home feel. We took my elderly grandmother as well as two teenagers, two children and a dog - and they all loved their stay! The cottage is wonderfully equipped with smart Tv's, a range of games and jigsaws, the fabulous wood fired hot tub and great garRead moredens to enjoy! The bedrooms were beautifully furnished and decorated and the master has an extra treat...a massaging mattress! Fab! The welcome basket was also a lovely treat to arrive to. Advice for others staying at the property would be to come stocked up with food! There are no local shops (not even a small corner shop) and the nearest is about a 20 minute drive away. However, we loved being nice and remote and a very kind neighbour provided us with emergency gravy when we realised we'd forgotten to get some for our Sunday roast! We visited York for the Christmas markets (about a 30 minute drive) and the ladies also visited the Feversham Arms in Helmsley (about 40 minutes away) for a fantastic spa day! Thank you for a wonderful stay, I hope to visit again! Hide

We wouldn't go again - nothing to do with the cottage but the journey there and back were awful.
