“Quintessential cottage located in rural Yorkshire”
Reviewed 16 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Need something a bit different, then look no further than Platform 1 for your stay in Yorkshire. The accommodation is in the old Castle Howard railway station and has all the modern amenities to make your stay comfortable. Anne and her husband are very welcoming and will help you during your stay. It is an ideal location for dog lovers, plenty of long walks, including wooded areas and a nearby doggy day care centre should you wish to visit Castle Howard or travel to major attractions. The nearby town of Malton provides you with train links to east coast,York, Leeds and Manchester. However you wish to spend your days, Platform 1 gives you a good base to explore, and a high standard of accommodation and for train buffs a must.

“Peaceful pet friendly 1st Class holiday Cottage.”
Reviewed 7 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

A beautifully appointed cottage in the heart of Yorkshire. Pet friendly and easily accessible this cottage is a great getaway from daily life. Close to York, with Castle Howard on its door step and only a short distance from the North York Moors this is a perfect holiday base for pets and their owners. Hope to stay again soon.

“A beautiful and immaculate, dog-friendly apartment in a spectacular location.”
Reviewed 6 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Platform One, Castle Howard is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore the beauty and attractions of North Yorkshire. Well situated between York and the magical villages of the moors there is something for everyone. Unbeatable fish and chips and the spectacular coastline are also a short drive away.

The accommodation is spotless and genuinely dog-friendly - a rare combination. The owner, Anne, is delightful and really deserves special mention for her unobtrusive thoughtfulness. Local produce was hand-picked for our arrival and was first class. I can not recommend this self-catering apartment highly enough.

“Idyllic pet friendly apartment in historic surroundings”

Platform 1 is a perfect location for exploring North Yorkshire. Communication with Anne is always prompt and she is always on hand to offer advice if needed.

There is plenty of parking here and with everything on one level its quite accessible.

As soon as you arrive you feel at home. A welcome basket awaits with essentials for your stay which is really thoughtful and means you don't need to find the nearest supermarket straightaway, which makes such a difference when you are on holiday.

The apartment is clean, well-decorated and cosy. There is interesting artwork on the walls relating to the time that Platform 1 was part of Castle Howard Train Station and it's really interesting to know the history of the place.

The kitchen is really well equipped - there are many great places to eat nearby in the local village of Welburn and the town of Malton, but if you want to cater indoors there is everything you need.

There are great walks from the front door, so no need to use a car once you arrive, if walking is your thing - the woods lead to Kirkham Priory in one direction and Crambeck village in the other. There is a large wildlife garden attached to the main house and quite secure for dogs too. Our dogs made themselves quite at home here.

The heated flooring throughout is pure luxury and the bed is so comfortable, that you are guaranteed a great nights sleep here.

We highly recommend Platform 1 and cannot wait to go back ! Do give this place a try, you will not be disappointed.

PS - The trains that go by are not in any way intrusive so don't be put off by that.

“Interesting and unusual”
Reviewed 5 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This apartment is in a great position, between York (excellent place to visit) and Malton (excellent places to eat). Castle Howard itself and all the surrounding towns are a must to see. We may well plan a return visit. Anne made sure we had all we needed and looks after the premises and grounds very well.
