Stracey Cottage is our Five Star Gold, award-winning, self-catering holiday cottage which sleeps up to four guests. Together with Clitherow Cottage, it makes up the gatehouse at the Park Gates in Hotham. It is set in a super location for exploring everything Yorkshire has to offer.
The accommodation is furnished and decorated to an impeccable standard and we think we’ve created a delightful home from home for guests, with all the creature comforts. Our pretty cottage makes the perfect choice for relaxing family holidays and weekend getaways.
Stracey Cottage is located within the beautiful country estate of Hotham. One of the county’s prettiest villages, Hotham is a haven of peace – a great place to escape from the stresses of everyday life.
Whether you choose to relax and unwind in the village, eat in the local pub, the Hotham Arms, or explore the numerous attractions in the area, we are sure that you will enjoy Stracey Cottage as a base for your stay in the region.
Having recently upgraded our broadband capabilities, the accommodation is also suitable for business guests. It lies close to the cities of Hull, York and Leeds.
Lovingly restored throughout, Stracey Cottage is available all year round, whatever the season. It boasts wonderful views of the adjacent parkland and at the back of the cottage, guests can enjoy the tranquil, enclosed and child-friendly garden.
There is ample private off-road parking, making this accommodation the perfect touring base for the whole of Yorkshire.
