About & Contact

Luxury holiday cottage in Yorkshire

Ethel's Escape is a rustic self-catering holiday cottage, located just 12 miles from the historic city of York. This is a place where guests arrive and cannot stop themselves from saying "wow".

This luxury cottage is heated by a Ground Source Heat Pump and offers plenty of space, and well-deserved peace and quiet. If you like you can open up with Ruby's Retreat to cater for 12 guests. The large dining table and range cooker will cater to all your needs. The cottage also has comfortable, stylishly furnished bedrooms.

A real fire ensures a warm welcome home during colder months and the games room means you'll never be short of something to keep you entertained. The cottage also has a pub within walking distance so you don't have to worry about who's going to be the designated driver!

Reviews for Ethels Escape at Bricknell Cottages

Tripadvisor logo

Meet the owner

Ros or Gerald Carter

Gerald and Ros operate the cottages alongside the working farm and also an animal grooming supply business, Showtime, which was established in 1992 and runs from the farm office and a converted cattle shed. We moved to Pear Tree Farm in 1957 when my father took over the farm and formed the Bricknell herd of pedigree dairy cattle. In 2004 we made the decision to sell the herd and converted our redundant farm buildings into 4 and 5 star cottages with work being completed in 2009. The old barn and stable are over 300 years old, took a lot of thought and creation to make them into 5 star properties with immense character. They were hard work to renovate but we had a great time and used skills we didn't know we had. We have had so many compliments that it has made it all worthwhile.
