About & Contact

Luxury holiday cottage in Yorkshire

Ruby's Retreat is a luxury holiday cottage that accommodates up to 6 guests (it will open up with Ethel's Escape to make a stunning cottage for 12 guests).

The cottage has a lovely open plan kitchen/living area with a solid oak dining table wrapped around the wall underneath a feature staircase made of canal lock gates. A comfortable sofa, rocking chairs, solid wood floor and wood burner all add to the cosy feel of the cottage.

All 3 of the cottage's bedrooms have their own individual atmosphere. The cottage also has heating provided by a Ground Source Heat Pump which collects heat from the soil in the paddock next to the cottages - using a heat exchange system creates the perfect temperature all the time.

A large stable door leads to a granite chip and Indian stoned area for relaxing and alfresco dining. There's also a real fire in the cottage for winter months, a games room to keep the family entertained, and an excellent pub within walking distance.

Reviews for Rubys Retreat 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.
