The Arches is a cosy two-bedroom cottage, located in the quiet village of Slingsby near Castle Howard. The cottage has an open fire, as well as its own private garden - with seating area.

The cottage is just a short walk from the pleasant village pub. There are routes for walking and cycling on the doorstep, but it is also well-situated for access to the North York Moors National Park, Howardian Hills AONB, York, and East Coast.
