Review: Near Whitby, North, Ewelands House, Sleights Yorkshire, United Kingdom

I frequently discuss how the pleasure side of the self-catering market continues to rise to new heights in terms of standards of excellence on A Luxury Travel Blog. Our most recent visit, which took place at Ewelands House in the North Yorkshire Moors community of Sleights, is no exception. This stunning three-bedroom cottage from Unique Retreats can accommodate up to 6 people, but it can also be used in conjunction with the property below ( Ewelands Retreat ) to accommodate8. Additionally, it is dog-friendly and accessible through Premier Cottages, a group of modest, jointly-marketed vacation leasing companies that are committed to offering top-notch services. Continue reading to find out more about our stay at this stunning hideaway, which is close to Whitby, a maritime sanctuary.
We were sent the script to a major safe container before we arrived, giving us access to the property at our convenience starting at 4 p.m. However, in order to personally welcome us, Lewis and Molly politely contacted us ahead of our stay to inquire about our arrival day. We expressed our gratitude for them not waiting for us and our ability to see ourselves in because we were unaware of our actual arrival time. This was fine, but it was still a lovely gesture. We were also greeted as soon as we entered by the wonderful aroma of freshly baked bread!
A bathroom with coating hooks and a foot rack greeted us as soon as we entered Ewelands House. It was the ideal setting to take off our boots and coats after an extended day of walking and accept the coziness of the property that would soon become apparent.
The open-plan kitchen, dining room, and lounge are the focal points of the home, where muffled, neutral shades create a calming environment where you can unwind and really feel at home.
All the necessary appliances are present in the kitchen, including an integrated microwave, washing machine, oven, stove, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, kettle, toaster, and breadmaker. With every house product imaginable at your fingertips, from chicken plates to a Champagne bottle and much more, no details have been missed.
The oak kitchen table takes center stage, and next to it is an honesty bar with an alluring collection of wines and spirits —something I have never seen in a self-catering establishment before.
The club is the ideal environment for a cozy night in thanks to the plush sofas, cushions, and lovely soft furnishings that are arranged close to an electric stove that burns wood and is stocked with supplies of logs. It also has sat Samsung TV and DVD player. There is even a small rubber record selection and record player.
A” Ewe are my light” roof rack, artistic animal photos adorning the walls, and sheep-themed designs and pads serve as frequent, beautiful memories that you are in Ewelands House.
A spectacular view of the sheep grasslands that make up the Esk Valley awaits you when you step outside onto the increased decking.
The pleasure continues as you climb to the lower floors with a beautiful king-size room complete with dressing table, full-length mirror, fitted clothes, and TV.
The community bathroom has a snowfall shower and pleasant Elemis toiletries, and the twin-bedded room next door offers flexibility with zip-link beds.
On the top floor, however, where the king bathroom beckons with a free-standing bathroom toward the foot of the bed, the pièce de résistance is waiting.
The area has its own en suite and pleasant Elemis toiletries, and from here you can see Whitby Abbey in the distance to the right.
As was already mentioned, Ewelands House can remain connected to the property below for larger organizations, allowing for up to eight guests for the ideal country place.
Sleights is surrounded by rolling hills and lush vegetation, but its more well-known neighbor is Whitby, a charming seaside area that can be reached by car in only four or ten minutes. Whitby, known for its spectacular headland abbey, has a long history in the maritime industry, not the least of which is the fact that renowned explorer Captain James Cook learned his trade around. His first mission in 1768 aboard the HMS Endeavour, a duplicate of which can be seen in the harbor, explored the then-largely undiscovered Pacific region, which eventually led to the modeling of New Zealand and the southeast coast of Australia and laid the groundwork for European colonization of the area.
Running The Cinder Track parkrun, which our eldest boy really won, barely missing out on the program record by only 18 seconds, was a fun way for us to explore the area in our own way. ), strolling through the town’s stores, and taking quiet strolls along Sandsend Beach, both of which felt as though we had earned our fish and chips at the renowned Magpie Café.
The city also has a significant literary link because it served as the basis for Bram Stoker’s” Dracula,” and Whitby Goth Weekend draws fans from all over the world to take advantage of its eerie beauty.
The users of Ewelands House have gone above and beyond to make their visitors feel appreciated. Every aspect has seemed to have been considered, from the thoughtful arrangement of wellies and tents at the entrance to perhaps a foot whistle for putting shoes on without difficulty. The previously mentioned odour of freshly baked base welcomes guests, and a luxurious stay is set in motion by milk in the refrigerator and an abundance of delectables, such as wine and various local treats.
Even furry friends are catered to with a basket of canine treats ( gravy bones, toys, and dog walk guides ), as well as shampoo and towels for post-adventure pampering.
The air is filled with fragrant reed dampers and there are table games, dominoes, books, and DVDs for entertainment. Perhaps an iPad Mini with the pre-installed Touch Stay apps from Unique Retreats is available for use by visitors.
A fortnight of off-season lodging costs £1,100, while a week during the height of the year costs £2,300. Depending on the time of time, little breaks of only two nights cost between £800 and £1,100.
There are many things to like about Ewelands House, including the amenities, the caliber of the decor, and the view. However, if I had to choose just one thing, it would be the constant attention to detail throughout the entire property. It seems as though every possibility has been considered and that the users have done everything in their power to guarantee that visitors have a truly opulent be.
Near the historic city of Whitby and surrounded by breathtaking views of the North Yorkshire Moors, Ewelands House is a haven where visitors can engage themselves in comfort and relaxation. It is more than simply a place to stay; it is an oasis with attentive services that represents the pinnacle of the luxury self-catering experience.
