Superbly situated by the River Derwent with fishing rights from the garden and riverbank, this delightful conversion, formerly a mill, has been lovingly refurbished by the current owners who live adjacent to the property.
Luxury 5 Star River Cottage offers excellent holiday accommodation to a particularly high standard and is ideal for families and couples alike. The master bedroom houses a 4 poster bed, en-suite bathroom and views over the garden and river, whilst the lounge hosts a woodburning stove - a must for those cooler evenings! FREE
This peaceful setting is perfect for those who simply wish to relax and unwind, whilst handy for exploring the coastal resort of Scarborough, some 3 miles away, the historic City of York, an hour's drive and the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors National Park, often referred to as 'Heartbeat Country'.

From River Cottage, a quiet lane leads to the main road with numerous shops including a post office, chemist and homemade cake and pie shop. Two pubs and a fish restaurant are also within easy walking distance, or if you wish to drive, a further selection is available en-route to Scarborough.
