Clara’s Cottage is a stunning and quirky home set in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds. There is so much to do in this relatively undiscovered area, including breath taking walks that start from right outside the door, taking you up Thirkleby Wold or through the surrounding fields. In every light the views and skies look different, making the cottage a mesmerising hideaway, especially at sunrise and sundown.
The run-up to Christmas is the perfect time to visit the cottage as the surrounding Sledmere House, Castle Howard and Burton Agnes Hall are wonderful to visit at this time of year. Magical York is not far away, and neither are the sandy beaches at Filey, Scarborough and Bridlington and the huge chalk cliffs at Flambourough Head. West Lutton itself is a pretty little village with a church and friendly pub: The Three Tuns (open Wednesdays to Sundays), where you’ll be sure to be given a warm Yorkshire welcome.
Clara’s is a Grade II listed, chalk-built, early 19th century cottage that sits beside the pretty Gypsey Race stream. It’s thought to have been originally built as an estate worker’s cottage. The property has been beautifully extended and renovated, with exposed roof timbers and floor joists, and inside guests will find a whirlpool Jacuzzi bath and log burner, the perfect quintessential features for a gorgeous winter snuggle up.
The cottage itself features two double bedrooms, one single bedroom, a bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and overhead shower, a large country-style kitchen, dining room and a sitting room ‘snug’ with wood-burning stove. The kitchen features an electric oven, range gas hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, Nespresso coffee machine, sandwich maker, slow cooker and hand blender. The cottage also enjoys: a Smart TV; BT infinity WiFi & BTTV entertainment package; DVD/Blu-ray Player; CD Player with Bluetooth in dining room; radios in kitchen, snug and bedroom; a selection of CDs & DVDs; and board games, cards and dominoes.
Outside there is an enclosed back garden, south-facing summerhouse, outdoor table and chairs, secure bike storage (with 2 bikes available to borrow, to be used at own risk), a barbecue, picnic hamper and cool bag. The property also boasts off-road parking on the bridge in front of the cottage and LPG central heating. The cottage is no smoking; one small well behaved dog is welcome; and guests should bring their own beach towels and dog towel.
If you wish to dine in the cottage, Jeff at Grace’s Cottage (opposite Clara’s) sells eggs and sometimes fruit and veg fresh from his allotment around the corner. Simply put your money in the honesty box in the garage, life here really is that sweet and simple.
Please note the winner will be required to pay a £200 GBP refundable security deposit.
