Furnished in a country cottage style as befitting a cottage of this age and character, it offers an excellent base to explore the Wolds.

The cottage offers one double and one single bedroom and its cottage style bathroom with bath, wash basin and toilet.

Commanding a sweeping view of the village is the lovely 15th century church of All Saints, featuring a three stage octagonal tower and lantern roof. Marmaduke Cottage derives its name from the staunch Royalist Sir Marmaduke Langdale a famous General for Charles 1.
