Town: The peaceful village of Sheriff Hutton is located amidst the gentle hills between York and Malton. Steeped in history, this lovely little settlement has a ruined castle which was built in 1382 and housed the English King Richard III until 1483. In addition to this is the even older Norman church dating from 1100 and still retains its enclosed pews today. One of the two village pubs dates back to the 17th Century, and both establishments serve food. This charming little village, set around the small square, is just 11 miles from the city of York and is also within easy driving distance of the North York Moors steam railway in Pickering and the East coast seaside towns of Bridlington, Hornsea and Scarborough. Whitby and Harrogate are also within an hour's drive, adding to the diverse range of activities available in the exciting area.

When we saw the ruins of the castle at the bottom of the garden we knew we had chosen well, even before we went inside the cottage!
The house is in an excellent location, right opposite the pub, 2 minutes walk from the well stocked general store, 10 minutes walk from the fascinating and welcoming old church and within good striking distance of everything we wanted to see.
It is extremely comfortable, warm and well equipped with a lovely light lounge, efficient kitchen and plenty of room for families (although there were only 3 of us!)
The garden is a good size and it was very pleasant to be able to sit on the patio and enjoy the view of the castle in the evening sunshine.
All in all we had a great week and will definitely visit again one day.

The service was excellent, the house was very comfortable everything you require is there and more. It is situated in the centre of the village opposite the Highwayman Inn which serves meals, postoffice and shop around the corner. There is a lovely walk up to the Castle from the side of the house. The people in the village are very friendly.
