Wayside Cottage is our one-bedroom romantic retreat, only a short country walk to the local village of Gilling West. This idyllic North Yorkshire village has a post office and one of our favourite local pubs; The White Swan. Settle in front of cosy log fires in the comfortable bar area or in the dining room, and enjoy an extensive menu of fresh local food and local ales.

At this family-run traditional Yorkshire pub, Dean and his team specialise in Beef and Butchery. With an onsite butchery, the family make their own burgers, black pudding and sometimes bacon, as well as crafting all the steaks to perfection!

The team has just entered a competition for Britain’s Best Burger and has a choice of seven varieties on the menu. The recipe is top secret (although it does contain stout ale and mustard seeds). But the resulting burgers are flame-grilled before being served in a brioche bun. Delicious!

Make sure you visit on a Monday for quiz night, Wednesday for burger night - which comes with a free pint of locally brewed ale - and Thursday for steak night. All are within stumbling distance of Wayside Cottage, a perfect country cottage that is a romantic retreat for two.
