May Cottage

Built in 1742, May Cottage is a mid-terrace, Grade II listed cottage located in the village of Stillington, boasting a lovely blend of modernised charm to ensure guests feel truly relaxed and right at home. Ideal for couples or a small family, this retreat makes a wonderful social base, with plenty of room for everyone to unwind in style. The lounge welcomes you at the entrance, boasting a solid fuel stove and exposed ceiling beams that add a glimpse of character. There is a traditional feel to the room which creates a cosy ambience for a snug night in with your loved ones. The kitchen is designed with granite counter tops, and holds all of those essentials that you may need during your stay. This continues to a light and conservatory style room with seating for four people and all-round windows that invite natural scenery inside. To access the first floor bedrooms and classic wet room, take the stairs which are tucked away into the lounge, a characterful addition to the property. The double bedroom is elevated by a pleasant, white finish, matched with bedside tables compliments the lovely interior.
