    “I hired the cottage to allow my family to gather together to help me celebrate my 70th birthday, and it was a good decision!”

    We all had a great time, and I'd definitely recommend it to friends. There were a couple of problems, however - the showers didn't get warm in two of the rooms, so I let everyone use ours (!), and the main oven wasn't working at all. However, we found ways around it, and, along with the fab pool, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

    Thank you very much for the feedback. Unfortunately the clock on the oven was not set so the oven didn't work. Once the clock was set, the oven worked. We do apologies for the showers, we had a pump that fail and couldn't be replaced in time for your visit as we needed to take up the flooring. This has now been completed. Property Owner

Malton 8 miles. Situated near the small hamlet of East Knapton, surrounded by open, working countryside, these four properties, including two lovely apartments, a ground-floor open plan barn conversion, and a delightful wing of a former farmstead are set within the owner’s large property and grounds.

Both of the apartments provide inviting first-floor accommodation, with bright and comfortable sitting rooms and modern bathrooms and kitchens, whilst the former farmstead cottage boasts period features, such as beamed ceilings, parquet floors, original fireplaces and a woodburning stove. The ground-floor open-plan cowshed is a lovely romantic retreat, with all you need in one place beneath delightful exposed beams, with views of the ponies and goats in the fields to wake up to.

About the location


Malton 4.7 miles; Scarborough 18.5 miles; York 23 miles.

Rillington is a small village and civil parish located on the A64 road in North Yorkshire, with easy links to the historical city of York and the bustling coastal town of Scarborough. Rillington was mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Survey and is now home to a Post Office, two pubs, The Coach and Horses and The Fleece, and a church. The rural community was developed many years ago due to the presence of fertile soil and the village is still home to an active farming community. Nearby attractions include the Scampton Walled Garden, a contemporary garden open for visitors throughout the year, and the Wolds Way Lavender, a lavender farm and visitor centre. Further afield into the city of York, you can discover the incredible York Minster and grand city walls. Heading towards the coast, the seaside towns of Filey and Scarborough offer a good selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés, as well as gorgeous promenades, water sports and golden sandy beaches.
