Ruby's Retreat

Self Catering

Located at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds, Bricknell Cottages Luxury Accommodation is nestled within Fangfoss, a well located, quiet village just 10 miles from York City. Ruby's Retreat is a beautiful three-bedroom converted barn. While all rooms have been renovated up to date, the essence of the building remains with the use of warm wooden floors, oak and pine beams and rustic accents throughout. This is a two-story building. On the ground floor, you'll find a spacious open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area with a wood-burning stove and a unique wooden table and a generous bedroom. The remaining two bedrooms are on the first floor. The stable door to the back of the property opens on to a private courtyard which is ideal for al fresco dining when the weather is good.

What is the capacity for Ruby's Retreat?

Ruby's Retreat is a gorgeous three bedroom holiday cottage that features a beautiful master bedroom with a floor to ceiling window framed with oak. The other two bedrooms, both en-suite, are on the first floor. Once booked in conjunction with Ethel 's Escape, the two create The Great Escape and can accommodate up to 12 guests.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the York area?

There are numerous fantastic walks, with some started just 20 meters away from the Cottages. The Wolds Way is a particular favourite which passes through many picturesque villages offering coffee shops along the way. Yorkshire has more than 800 attractions, ranging from World Heritage sites to mining museums, ruins of castles and abbeys to hands-on museums. There are beautiful parks, exclusive breweries, thrilling rides and industrial heritage. There's something for everyone, from attractions and museums to sports and exhibits, from the history fanatics to the inquisitive child.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

The Yorkshire restaurant guide from Hardens UK has more restaurants and gastro pubs of high quality than any other county in England. From the 300-year-old country pubs with a small atmosphere serving home-cooked food to award-winning top-class restaurants. A fantastic option, in town or in the countryside. Try The Carpenters Arms, Fangfoss, your new local and only a couple of minutes walk from the cottages so no need for the car. In the nearby village of Low Catton, try The Gold Cup Inn - an attractive, historic, family-run, country pub. Or choose one of York's most talked-about eateries, serving award-winning food in a relaxed dining atmosphere.
