About this listing
Beautiful cosy stone cottage within easy walking distance of shops, cafe's, bars and restaurants as well as the NYM Steam Railway, 20 minutes drive across the moors to Whitby or 30 mins drive to the historic city of York.
A perfect romantic break
The cottage is on 3 levels. The ground floor has one lounge area with a Galley Kitchen off to one side and a sun room to the other (which is used as a dining area) leading out to a small yard with table and chairs. There are lots of natural wood features including beams. Upstairs is a double bedroom and bathroom with a shower over the bath. The top floor is not available for guests to use.
Guests will have access to the ground and first floor of the cottage including the small yard to the rear.
Interaction with guests
Someone will be there on check in to answer your questions and show you around and leave you a folder containing contact details for myself, guides for the area, things to do and emergency contact details for local doctor/dentist etc
The cottage is located a stones throw from the pretty market place with its pubs, restaurants and cafe's. You can leave the car and walk into town and not have to worry about taxi's at all
The parish church is worth a visit with beautiful medieval paintings and features
The cottage is also very close to the local bus services as well as the North York Moors Railway station. The bus service covers East/West from Thirsk to Scarborough and North/South fromWhitby to York. In summer the NYM Railway run a steam service to Whitby as well as Gotland and Grosmont.
We ask that guests leave the cottage as they find it and treat it with respect, it has been in our family for 2 generations and is not a business/investment - we live there for part of the year ourselves. Unfortunately we do not allow pets as there is no suitable outdoor space.
