Enjoy York and the surrounding area

Explore York and its beautiful surroundings

Derwent Cottage is a stunning period cottage set in the quiet village of Newton-upon-Derwent and is only nine miles from York city centre.

This property is ideal for families and friends wishing to enjoy the sights of York including the National Railway Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre, York Minster, York’s Chocolate Story and its fascinating city walls. With an abundance of cafés, bars and restaurants, York is quickly gaining a great reputation for its food offerings, and with shops on every corner and miles of snickleways to explore, there is something for everyone in this medieval city.

The market towns of Pocklington, Malton and Beverley are within easy reach with the seaside towns of Bridlington, Scarborough and Filey around an hour’s drive away. With many English Heritage and National Trust properties in the area, a holiday to this part of Yorkshire will provide many lasting memories. Shop two miles, pub 400 yards, restaurant five miles.

Newton upon Derwent is a small village which lies East of the River Derwent after which the village takes its name. It has a Chapel which is also used as a Community hall, a Pub, The Half Moon and a handful of working farms. The nearest local shops are located a couple of miles away in Wilberfoss & Elvington. The market town of Pocklington, five miles away is served by larger supermarkets, shops, restaurants and takeaways. Why not order your supermarket shop online and have it delivered to the Cottage on your arrival?

We are also on the picturesque Wolds Way, a walk of beautiful market towns, dry valleys and stunning wildlife. Stretching from Filey near Scarborough via Pocklington and Market Weighton and through ancient villages with historic architecture and finishing just outside 2018 UK City of Culture Kingston-upon-Hull, there’s no better way of exploring the Wolds with your family or solo than this 79 mile stretch.
