In a nutshell: Detached, hot tub, short drive to York, pet friendly. If you are staying at any of our York cottages a trip to Castle Howard, just 15 miles from Merricote Cottage, is a must. One of the grandest stately homes in Britain, it is set in an elevated position against the Howardian Hills with a magnificent facade that is visible for miles around. It is the largest house in Yorkshire and has been the home of the Howard family since the 17th-century and was the location for Brideshead Revisited.It is situated in breathtaking parkland, dotted with temples, lakes, statues and fountains as well as formal gardens
