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:

Loved the cottage, wish I had this garden our dog loves it too will hopefully be coming back sometime.

As a base for exploring the wider area, York is an ideal starting point as it is centrally located in the the Vale of York. North of the city, one will find the charming traditional market towns of Easingwold, Thirsk, Northallerton, Ripon and Bedale, each with its own distinctive features, all welcoming.

The Vale of York is easily explored on foot or by bike. At Sutton Bank on the edge of the Hambleton Hills, the vale spreads out below with the Yorkshire Dales rising up in the distance and a lush green view that stretches for miles, including the White Horse carved in chalk on the hillside. Wildlife enthusiasts will be overwhelmed with variety on offer at the stunning Lake Gormire.
