The Engine Room Cottage is a stylish, modern and luxurious property set in the lyrical landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds. Situated on the edge of the village of Sledmere, midway between Driffield and Malton, it has been creatively converted to provide comfortable and luxurious accommodation and has fabulous views over open countryside and farmland. The cottage is well placed for exploring both the East Coast and the rolling hills of the Wolds, making it ideal for walkers and cyclists seeking to discover this hidden, historic, timeless corner of Yorkshire.

The run-up to Christmas is also 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. A short drive along country roads takes you to the historic market town of Driffield, which offers independent shops, tea rooms, restaurants and a weekly market day. Driving the other way takes you to lovely Malton, known as the ‘Food Capital of Yorkshire’ where you will be spoiled for choice for delis and eateries.

The Engine Room Cottage was once the fire station in the pretty conservation village of Sledmere. Today, this unique, spacious, stylish, semi-detached cottage offers quality accommodation for up to 6 guests staying in 3 ensuite bedrooms. The cottage enjoys fabulous views across open countryside, farmland and the rural, rolling Wolds. The beach lies just 20 minutes away and yet it’s still only 25 miles from York, making this the ideal destination for a relaxing break with family and friends.

The spacious, modern open-plan living area runs the whole length of the property with a feature window converted from the original engine room door and exposed beams. The cottage is luxuriously furnished and equipped to the highest of standards with large kitchen, extensive dining section and comfy seating area with sumptuous, sink in, leather sofas. The French doors open onto the enclosed terrace (with dining seating for 6 people) which looks out across open fields for a very pleasant al fresco dining experience enjoying the spectacular sunsets.

The cottage boasts 3 bedrooms (one downstairs twin and two king-size upstairs), 3 bathrooms (one downstairs shower room with basin and WC and two upstairs ensuites, one with bath as well as shower), an open-plan living, dining area for 8, a spacious seating area, and a large kitchen. The cottage is no smoking and can welcome one small well behaved dog.

The kitchen enjoys an electric oven with ceramic hob, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, slow cooker, hand blender, fridge, drinks fridge with freezer, dishwasher, and washer-dryer.

In terms of amenities, the cottage features: TV with Freeview (plus TVs & hairdryers in upstairs bedrooms); DVD player; portable Bluetooth speaker; wifi; board games and cards; air source heat pump heating; underfloor heating and ample off road parking.

Nearby guests will find a farm shop 0.3 miles down the road, a larger farm shop 5 miles away, a supermarket 8 miles away and the popular Triton gastropub serving delicious food and local ales lies just a short 5 minute walk from the door.

Please note the winner will be required to pay a £200 GBP refundable security deposit.
