Apple Tree Cottage is a Grade II listed barn that has been sympathetically converted and restored to a high standard to provide very comfortable self-catering accommodation. The living area is open plan with a fully fitted kitchen with all modern conveniences.
Bedrooms are a downstairs double, and a twin room upstairs, galleried over the living area. The bathroom is downstairs and has both bath and shower facilities. The sofa converts into a large double bed, giving accommodation for up to 6.
Outside there is an enclosed patio area to the rear, with outdoor furniture, barbeque and outdoor drying facilities. To the front the garden has a lawn, and both sides have wonderful views of the Yorkshire Wolds and our farm. Apple Tree Cottage is set in beautiful, peaceful countryside, next door to Howsham Wood, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and part of the Howardian Hills AONB. The wood is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna including bluebells and primroses in the spring, and a growing community of deer.
Apple Tree Cottage is completely self contained with garden and patio areas for guests use.
