New Station Cottage
Sledmere 0.3 miles. This attractive modern semi-detached property, is built on the site of the former local fire station in Sledmere, which served the rural community of the Yorkshire Wolds. Quietly situated on the edge of the village, midway between the pretty market towns of Driffield and Malton, this delightful cottage provides very comfortable accommodation for those looking to explore both the East Coast and the rolling hills of the Wolds. With lovely views over open countryside and farmland, there is a bright and sunny sitting room with a cosy woodburner for the cooler evenings and a dining area to one end. Patio doors open onto a paved area with seating, perfect for afternoon tea and evening drinks, while enjoying glorious views over the pastures. With a light and contemporary feel throughout, you will find a well-equipped modern kitchen with breakfast bar and three nicely-furnished bedrooms. With a bathroom and an additional cloakroom, the cottage caters for all your family’s needs. Also on the ground floor is the added luxury of underfloor heating and there's a second TV in one of the first floor bedrooms. A short stroll brings you to the local village inn, serving food and local ale, whilst Sledmere House stately home is just a few minutes’ walk and offers a very popular cafe and tea room and a well-stocked farm shop with local produce, along with beautiful gardens and regular exhibitions. The surrounding area of this hidden corner of Yorkshire is ideal cycling and walking country, with small country lanes and public footpaths criss-crossing the hills, including the Wolds Way long distance trail. It's a short drive to the historic market towns of Driffield and Malton, which offer independent shops, tea rooms, restaurants and weekly market days. For culture seekers, there's the added delight of the Hockney Trail, which encompasses the best of the Yorkshire Wolds. The seaside lies within half an hour's drive at Bridlington, a traditional seaside resort with golden sands, a pretty harbour and amusement arcades. Be sure to visit the windswept chalk cliffs of Flamborough and Bempton RSPB Reserve, which offer spectacular coastal views, and with York an easy drive, this delightful property is well placed for a varied and enjoyable holiday.
