About Nightingale Cottage

Nightingale Cottage is in a quiet location on a 400-acre arable farm within easy reach of the ancient city of York and the breathtaking Yorkshire coast. There's plenty of room for six people to sleep in three bedrooms, with a layout that suits families and friends. Nightingale is one of three holiday cottages on the farm that accommodates up to 12 people when booked together. Spend your days exploring Yorkshire's coast, countryside and cities, and your evenings tucking into delicious meals and relaxing under the stars in the outdoor hot tub.

The cottage is located just two miles from Stamford Bridge where there is a pub, cafes and a small supermarket. Settled by the Romans, it is the site of Harald's victory over the Vikings in 1066, shortly before his final defeat at Hastings. Build an appetite with a walk beside the Derwent River or those with energetic legs can cycle to York in around three hours - it's a challenging 35-mile loop that showcases the East Riding countryside. The Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is about five miles from the cottage, whilst the beaches and coastal footpaths at Flamborough and Bridlington are less than an hour's drive.

You will want to set aside at least one day to explore historic York. Thousands of years of history include cobbled medieval lanes and a magnificent minster, as well as a wide variety of places to eat, drink and shop. If you're feeling brave, book a place on a guided ghost walk. Other local attractions to enjoy during your stay include Castle Howard and Flamingo Land. Harrogate and Hull are less than an hour's drive, giving even more choice.

Nightingale Cottage is available all year round for holiday bookings, with short breaks possible outside of peak season. It's ideal for an active holiday walking, cycling or golfing, for lovers of food, history, culture and shopping, and for anyone who appreciates having time and space to relax with their favourite people.

Accommodation Comprises:

Nightingale Cottage is a barn conversion with accommodation over two levels with an upside-down layout.


  • Large master bedroom with a high ceiling and lovely king-sized bed. The ensuite is the perfect place to relax with a deep bath, separate shower, WC and a handbasin. There is ample storage and a TV for lazing about in bed with a good film or your favourite show.
  • Bedrooms Two and Three each have zip and link beds that can be two full-sized (3ft-wide) single or a super-kingsize bed. Both rooms have a wall-mounted TV, proper storage so you can unpack and settle in, and a quartz-tiled ensuite with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Cloakroom with a WC and a handbasin.


  • Open plan living/dining area designed with relaxed socialising in mind. A high ceiling and big windows add to the sense of light and space, and there's comfortable seating for six people to relax and watch TV.
  • At the other end of the room, the modern kitchen ensures cooking is not a chore. It's a stylish space with modern appliances and lots of room to store food and prepare meals. Cupboards are well-stocked with all the cooking utensils and equipment for family self-catering. A central island with stools is a favourite place to sit with a glass of wine to keep the cook company.

Outside: Walk from the living area onto the patio where there are tables, chairs and an outdoor hot tub. The cottage has plenty of parking nearby.

Additional Information: All utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. The owner provides a welcome basket with local goodies and essentials. A travel cot and a high chair are available, as are bathrobes for use with the hot tub. Please note that the cottage is adjacent to an A road.
