About

The Brush & Boot B&B and Self Catering Accommodation, near Castle Howard, York, is a charming, dog friendly, holiday cottage country retreat set within the Howardian Hills.
​The hosts, Richard and Kim, opened the ​Brush & Boot ​
B & B in May 2013 with their joint passions for art and walking in mind.
The name “Brush & Boot” comes from ​
Kim & Richard's joint passions for
art and walking

​The Location
It sits atop a hill by a wood that lies between two castles in North Yorkshire, the dramatic ruins of King Richard III’s Sheriff Hutton Castle and the Baroque majesty of Castle Howard (famous as the location for the film and TV series Brideshead Revisited).

A beautiful and tranquil setting, off the beaten track with big views over the Yorkshire Wolds & the Vale Of York, yet just 12 miles away from the ancient walled city of York in North Yorkshire​.

The Hosts

Left in the hands of Richard and Kim​, you can rest assured of a warm welcome and a personal, friendly service throughout your stay.

The Accommodation

The Brush & Boot's accommodation is perfect for a 'get away from it all' break. You can choose from self catering as a 1 bed ground floor apartment, 2 bed holiday cottage or B&B bedroom.

 

Pet Friendly

No need to pack Fido off to the kennels for the weekend, the Brush & Boot  welcomes you and your furry friends to come and have a relaxing stay together.

 

Walks

There's a network of great walks straight from the door. With a National Trail (Centenary way) running past the bottom of the drive, as well as the Yorkshire Moors, North Yorkshire Coast and Yorkshire Dales all within easy reach, Brush & Boot is an ideal place for any keen rambler.

Guests particularly enjoy the walk straight from the Brush & Boot door to see the delightful Baroque Mansion, Castle Howard.

 

Wildlife

It' s such a great spot for wildlife lovers; with Roe deer & badger wandering the wood behind the grounds, Buzzards and Hawks and hundreds of native birds visiting the Brush & Boot gardens daily.
