Happy 2020!

We would like to wish all our guests past and present a very Happy New Year! As the days are getting longer and brighter and February is just around the corner, we would like to tell you about some of the fabulous events taking place in and around York.

The Ice Trail, York – 01/02/2020 – 02/02/2020

York is hosting its annual Ice Trail again at the beginning of February. This year it is the theme of Fantastical Fiction and Fairy Tales, as if by magic 40 sculpture of solid ice will appear, providing everyone visiting York with wintery feel of fairy tale fun. There will be hands on experiences, live carvings and even chance to win some great prizes!

The Jorvik Viking Festival – 15/02/2020 – 23/02/2020

This is the largest festival of its kind in EUROPE! This Festival is taking place this February, why not visit York and experience a host of events, which include, markets, workshops, tours and everything Viking related. This will keep all members of the family entertained this half term!

The Snowdrop Spectacular -07/02/2020 – 01/03/2020 (11am to 4pm every day)

This February why not come out of hibernation for the Snowdrop Spectacular at Burton Agnes Hall, just an hour away from our cottages. Every February millions of snowdrops push through the cold winter ground a create an amazing ‘white carpet’ across the woodland floor. Visiting the snowdrops makes a fabulous day out, they are a welcome sight and reminds us that winter finally gives way to spring and marks the start of the new season. After a winter walk why not tuck into some home-baked treats and a pot of tea in the courtyard.

If you are thinking of visiting York and beyond this February, why not stay with us at one of our beautiful cottages! Relax in total luxury after a busy day exploring!!
