For a fabulous stay in Yorkshire look no further than Ethel's Escape in the peaceful village of Fangfoss in the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds. One of a small collection of holiday cottages which have been lovingly renovated from old farm buildings on the owner's farm, this three bedroom, three bath/shower room cottage is a perfect mix of tranquility, comfort and fun. With a shared games-room on site, a pub 400 yards away, acres of land to walk on and York around ten miles away, there is so much to do for all the family.

Named after one of the family's prize-winning Holstein cows, it is styled with a south western American vibe using oodles of reclaimed wood, amazing beams and bespoke doors, the hand-crafted staircase is a real feature. Styled with a nod to the American south west, the kitchen has plenty of character and is well-equipped to create a feast for all the family. The impressive farmhouse table has room for all the family to gather and share time together.

The living-room is designed to be comfy and cosy, here you can warm your toes by the wood-burner effect electric stove. Luxuriate in the ground floor bedroom; a four-poster king-size bed, uniquely styled shower-room and free-standing bathtub in the bedroom make it really unique.

Two spacious bedrooms await you upstairs; offering flexibility the 'zip and link' bed can be configured as a twin or a super-king with an en suite shower-room. The king-size bedroom has a stylish free-standing bathtub, one for the romantics. There are TVs in all the bedrooms, perfect for long, lazy lie ins.

To the rear of the cottage is a small courtyard garden bordered by mature trees and bushes, outdoor seating beckons you to take a step back from a busy lifestyle, listen to the birdsong and enjoy al fresco dining.

An impressive and unique property, escape to the Yorkshire countryside, slow down and immerse yourself in new experiences and make wonderful memories with family and friends.

Fangfoss is set in the Yorkshire Wolds with its wide open spaces, amazing landscapes and stunning wildlife. From historical sites and glorious gardens to the long sandy coastline there is something for everyone in this beautiful part of Yorkshire.

York is only a few miles away with its cobbled streets, medieval architecture, timbered black and white houses and a 2000-year history. Sitting within the city walls, York has evolved into a cultural and cosmopolitan city. Bars, artisan and designer shops, cafes and a Michelin Star restaurant 'Roots' by Tommy Banks rub shoulders with historic York Minster and The Shambles, a must for Harry Potter fans. Treat yourself to afternoon tea at the famous Betty's Tea Rooms. In the summer sunshine relax in the many parks and gardens. Children will love the World Famous Jorvik Museum. At Christmas York comes alive with twinkling shop fronts and a Christmas market. Any time of year is perfect for a visit to York.

Some of the best walks and cycling trails in the country are within the beautiful countryside of the Wolds, North Yorkshire Moors and Dales. Try the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail or challenging Chimney Bank on the moors.

The Yorkshire coastline and its magnificent cliffs are home to puffins and other birdlife, with sandy beaches below. Whitby Abbey and Scarborough Castle have sat atop the cliffs for centuries. Coves and intriguing smugglers' ports such as Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes and Runswick Bay have a labyrinth of winding streets. Today the smugglers are long gone and these gorgeous villages teem with individual shops, art galleries and cafes, but do be aware that they are very hilly.

Whatever your interest Yorkshire caters for everyone and will offer you a hearty welcome.
