A stunning barn conversion set in rolling countryside, this property is able to sleep six people across three bedrooms, one of which contains a four-poster bed.

Set amidst tranquil countryside in grounds next to stables, this lovely barn conversion is only 14 miles from the cathedral city of York. Spacious, bright and well furnished, this Brandsby property provides stylish and fresh accommodation, with French doors opening onto a pretty cottage garden with the added bonus of a luxury hot tub. The local towns of Easingwold and York provide many local amenities, whilst the surrounding area is full of footpaths and bridleways to explore. This wonderful cottage is a great home-from-home for either a family break or a trip with friends.


Nice place if you don't mind being overlooked!
The cottage is much smaller than it appears on the provided photos and to our disappointment was situated right between the main house and the stables. There is no privacy. You are overlooked from every angle. People even walk past the lounge window which was disconcerting. When my children were in the hot tub with me, people were pulling up in cars and looking at them. The garden is a mess of weeds and the family dog appears to prefer to do its 'business' in the cottage garden which I refused to pick up! There is a vast paddock which you are not allowed in. Onto the hot-tub - the owner insisted that the cover be propped up which dangerously kept falling on our heads.Be aware that you are only allowed to use it at certain times! Inside the cottage- nice upstairs. Be careful as the wooden stairs are lethal when wet. Bathroom was lovely but only one toilet was a problem for a family of five. Lounge area was fine. We had a nice stay in a beautiful area but it was too overlooked and not private for us.

It was very pleasant surroundings and a comfortable cottage, a hot tub is always good and it was good to be able to take the dogs on a family weekend,

Beck Hill Cottage was amazing, the owners were so welcoming and helpful and I'd recommend anyone to stay there. It was so quiet, peaceful and relaxing.
Miss Howes

The owners were very friendly and there if needed, but never intrusive. The cottage is conveniently located for York, the countryside and the coast, and there are numerous attractions in the area. The extras like Sky TV and the hot tub provided at the cottage made our stay perfect and our little one loved the friendly animals on site.

Lovely surroundings and welcoming owners
I always think that the best test comes when things go wrong and this was no exception- one of our daughters was ill and we needed fresh bedding, washing powder and use of a tumble dryer, all of which were readily supplied with good cheer by the owners who live next door. Then the drains blocked up but these were all sorted out the same morning - a bank holiday. The cottage is well equipped, in a beautiful setting near the village of Crayke with the excellent Durham Ox pub. We felt very well looked after and it is a great base for visiting York and surrounding areas. As someone else has said, an extra loo would be handy for a family of five but this is very good value for money. The hot tub is great but we haven't used it that much as the weather has been crazy - lightning and hail welcoming in the first day of Spring.
