Step inside Yew Tree Cottage, and close your eyes. Smell the fresh bacon and eggs delivered from the local organic butcher sizzling in the kitchen. Hear the crackling wood-burning stove, which heats the family room and beyond. Feel the cool, renovated wood floors beneath your feet and nearly 300 years of history built into the walls. Quite simply, Yew Tree Cottage is a delight for the senses.

Ideal for families or couples in need of a break from the professional city life, Yew Tree Cottage sleeps up to 6 guests. Meticulously renovated and mindfully decorated, this one-of-a-kind country retreat embodies luxury living both inside and out. Natural materials, warm hues, subdued patterns, tasteful artwork and carefully selected fabrics create a classic, cosy British vibe with a nod to the surrounding environment and years gone by.

We enjoyed our stay at Yew Tree Cottage. We were a family of 6 with one infant. The rooms are stylishly decorated. Being 6 of us, and having only one bathroom slowed us down a little. The property had a nice little garden with a...More

Nestling deep in the Ryedale countryside, just a stone’s throw from Kirkham Priory, Westow is a pleasant village located just 4 miles south of Malton and 12 miles from the historical city of York. Castle Howard is just down the road, the river Derwent is a beautiful spot for fishing, or walking, and the moors and coast are a fantastic day trip.
Much of the village, including Yew Tree Cottage is designated a conservation area, in recognition of the need to preserve the attractiveness of the settl...
