Conveniently located in the picturesque village of Askham Bryham, just 5 miles West of York is Blacksmith's Cottage. This traditional brick built cottage enjoys an enviable village location, yet just a stone's throw from the magnificent cathedral city of York, offering guests the best of both worlds - the buzzing ambience of the historical city of York during the day, and the easy journey back to the peaceful ambience of Blalcksmith's Cottage during the evening. The cottage itself is traditionally arranged over two floors and offers spacious accommodation for five guests in three bedrooms. The lounge/dining room has patio door leading onto the large, fully enclosed lawned garden with paved patio area, ideal for children and pets.
Two nice comments left by guests are:
Lovely cottage, the children loved the garden and feeding the ducks every day.
Loved the cottage, wish I had this garden our dog loves it too will hopefully be coming back sometime.
