Perfect for couples and families with young children, The Mistal is a spacious well-appointed cottage in an idyllic location near the Hermitage on the outskirts of Burythorpe. The property offers extremely comfortable accommodation with two bedrooms and lots of outside space in beautiful and tranquil surroundings on the edge of the magnificent Yorkshire Wolds. The market town of Malton, one of Yorkshire's top food centres, is only a 10 minute drive away and York is a mere 25 minute drive from the cottage. The famous stately home estate of Castle Howard is also nearby.
You have your own extensive area of lawn, with sun all day long, and views over the fields. A sunny and sheltered stone-flagged patio area is located near the conservatory – a wonderful spot for outdoor dining, or just relaxing and reading a book. Please note that the garden, though very private, is not enclosed.
Ample parking is available onsite.
We provide a BBQ and you will have the shared use of the grassed tennis court (May to September).
Bed linen, bath and hand towels, hair dryer, extra blankets, toilet roll, hand soap, kitchen roll, dish cloth, tea towels, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets are all included.
We have a travel cot, booster seat, booster step and bed protectors available on request. Bedding for the travel cot is NOT provided.
For family groups, we have another cottage next door called the Granary Self Catering Cottage which can sleep up to a further 12 guests. Please contact us directly for further prices and availability.
Two, 3 and 4 night short breaks are available from £250.00 in low season for up to 4 guests. Please email or phone for prices.
Walking in this area is a delight and there are a myriad of paths to follow and discover the wonderful countryside. We provide information to help you. Alternatively you can take a short car journey to visit the North Yorkshire Moors, the Yorkshire Coast or the charming villages in the Wolds. York or Castle Howard are also lovely days out.
