Kew Cottage is situated in an enviable location in the heart of the Howardian Hills between the villages of Hovingham and Terrington.  Constructed of stone under pantile, Kew Cottage is a detached house situated close to Wiganthorpe Hall and its former outbuildings, which have been renovated and converted creating an attractive, but private place to live.  Kew Cottage is one of 4 houses built in the early Twentieth Century to house key members of staff on the Wiganthorpe Estate, which at that time was owned by the Fitzwilliam family.  The houses are approached via a private driveway past a picturesque lake, giving access to ample parking and the garaging.

Kew Cottage is a spacious 3/4 bedroom house with a more recent kitchen extension to the side, 3 reception rooms (one of which could be used as a 4th bedroom) all with oil fired central heating and double glazing.  To the front of the house there is a large expanse of grass and shrubbery on which there is a 3 car timber garage and a lean-to car port.  To the rear there are terraced lawned gardens with mature trees and shrubs making it particularly private.   

Although in a lovely rural location, Wiganthorpe is 10 miles from the Market Towns of Helmsley, Malton and Easingwold where there are good local facilities and amenities and only 13 miles north of the York ring road.  The A19 is some 10 miles away at Easingwold, giving good access to the north with the A65 by-passing York giving speedy access to the West Riding and the motorway network beyond.  There is a main line railway station at York from where London can be reached in under 2 hours.
