This detached, red brick cottage in New Earswick near York can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Micklegarth is a wonderful, detached, red brick cottage in the village of New Earswick, on the outskirts of York. The cottage is set solely on the ground floor and offers a double room, a twin room and a family bathroom boasting a roll-top bath. There is a well-equipped kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room. From the dining area, French doors lead out into the rear, enclosed lawned garden where you will find furniture and a barbecue. There is also a front lawned garden and off road parking for two cars. Micklegarth is a wonderful base for friends and families to explore North Yorkshire, all year round.


This property is in the ideal position for a holiday in York; near enough by bus to the city centre but also near to the outer ring road for getting out and about. The house is in a quiet little road, so no traffic to worry about if you have children. Very comfortable, warm and well kept property with everything you need for a break there. Beautiful garden if the weather allows you to get into it! Owner lives nearby so easy to get help if needed and was very welcoming.

The house is very comfortable and in an ideal position for getting around York. The accommodation is good, very clean and airy. It had comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. Would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in York.
Mrs Berks

The location of Micklegarth was excellent - in easy reach by car of everything we wanted. Accommodation well set out and very well equipped.
Mrs Fitzgerald

A perfect cottage for visiting York. The accommodation was warm, spotlessly clean and amazingly quiet for somewhere so close to town.
Mrs Jones

Excellent value for money. Location was great it was on a good regular bus route only minutes into the centre of York. Even using the car was very close to motorway links to Ripon, Selby and all the major shopping parks. Owner friendly and very helpful.
