Owl Cottage is a lovely semi-detached barn conversion and is one of five holiday cottages set around a central courtyard at Holtby Grange, just outside the small village of Holtby and only 5 miles from York city centre. Hidden down a long private drive and surrounded by open countryside with far-reaching views, this one bedroomed property offers a very high level of guest comfort and luxurious extras for a couple. The entrance to the property is from the main courtyard which has beautifully trimmed boxed hedges and a koi carp pond. With shared seating, this area offers a real sense of peace and tranquillity. Upon entering the property you are straight into the open plan kitchen/dining room/living room. With a feature brick wall, contemporary wood burner and vaulted ceiling, not to mention the oak kitchen covered with granite worktops, Belfast sink and high end cooking appliances, this property will not disappoint. The chef in the family will certainly enjoy cooking in this kitchen. The wow factor continues into the bedroom with a zip and link bed and a high quality mattress and bedding, you are assured a peaceful nights sleep. The wet room is huge with an accessible shower, safety handle and fixed seating. Outside there is a large enclosed garden shared between all the cottages offering a shaded wooded area, summerhouse with seating, garden paths and a central pond which is surrounded by a fence. The property owner lives on-site and there is car parking for two cars and bike storage is also available.
Owl Cottage welcomes dogs; they even have their own little welcome pack including dog treats and information on local dog friendly cafés, pubs and restaurants. An enclosed paddock and outside dog shower ensure that your four legged friend also has an enjoyable holiday.
Within 5 miles is the historic city of York and its plethora of world renowned visitor attractions from the Gothic York Minster, National Railway Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre and York’s Chocolate Story.

The Victorian spa town of Harrogate, 21 miles, Thirsk and home of James Herriot, 31 miles and the seaside resort of Scarborough, 44 miles which are all within day trip distance.
