Set in North Yorkshire’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Howardian Hills, the picturesque farming village of Terrington is the perfect base for a relaxing holiday. There is a fine Norman church, while charming stone built cottages line the wide main street. The village has a well-stocked general store and tea-room serving delicious home baking. Our delightful village is also home to Yorkshire Lavender – sit in the cafe and admire the breathtaking view of the Vale of York.
Our cottages are perfectly situated for discovering North Yorkshire’s many charms. Castle Howard – featured in the film ‘Brideshead Revisited’ – is only 3 miles away, the historic city of York just 14 miles, and pretty Hovingham only a few minutes’ drive.
To the North lies the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Here the beauty of unspoilt moorland and rich pastures patchworked with dry stone walls are perfect for either touring by car or by walking and hiking. As a fascinating contrast, visit the east of the area with is quaint fishing villages, spectacular cliffs and coastal scenery, beautiful beaches and lively seaside resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington as well as the famous fishing town of Whitby.
Travel westwards and you will find the splendid Minster city of York, Herriot country, the peaceful Dales and the dramatic Bronte landscape.
Come and enjoy a warm Yorkshire welcome.
