Located in the Castle Howard Estate village of Coneysthorpe, The Green is a cosy cottage that has been furnished with some lovely pieces from Castle Howard itself. It’s the ideal base for exploring this fascinating and beautiful part of the world.
This delightful 18th Century stone cottage brings you a beguiling mix of contemporary comforts with timeless elegance, thanks to carefully-chosen modern fixtures and fittings that blend perfectly with period furniture taken from Castle Howard itself. There is a beauty and sophistication to each room and little details like the roll-top bath, antique wooden Welsh dresser and wood-burning stove simply add to the charm.
The owners of The Green provide guests with a voucher to use at the Castle Howard Farm Shop, along with free entry to Castle Howard valid for a day of your choice. So you really can make the most of your idyllic location and explore this magnificent estate. A little further on are the Howardian Hills and North York Moors, with their endless footpaths and bridleways. You can explore all day and hardly see a soul. If you’d like a bit more hustle and bustle after all that tranquillity, the city of York is just 15 miles away.
There are steps up to the front door of the property and tiered garden. There is also a step between rear entrance hall and kitchen.
Up to four well-behaved dogs welcome (small additional charge).
Day entry passes to Castle Howard valid for the day of your choice (subject to seasonal public opening times, please click here for more information). The house and gardens are open seasonally (usually from around April to October), however please make sure to check before you visit and book ahead.
Guests will receive a £20 voucher to use at the Castle Howard's Farm Shop.
Initial wood supply provided in baskets by the wood burning stoves.
Within walking distance to excellent gastro pub.
Beautifully kept property, comfortable lounge with separate dining room area. Very comfortable beds with good bathroom facilities. The water pressure is spectacular! We're very glad we stayed there.
We have given the stay five stars, and we thoroughly enjoyed the week, below are our small niggles, none of them show stopping. The cottage is ideally situated for the coast and many National Trust and HHA properties. A wider range of places to visit / maps of the area beyond local walking would have been appreciated. The key safe was not to the left of the FRONT door but to the right of the side door, a misleading piece of advice from rural retreats, which when arriving after a very long and fraught journey was not helpful! A well appointed cottage, well furnished appropriate to its age. The stairs to bedrooms are very steep and would challenge someone with mobility problems. The duvets are far too heavy for summer, and a summer weight one should be offered / available.
Very well maintained and furnished .
