  • A fantastic base for keen walkers
Property code: G0018

This lovely holiday cottage is a stylish two-bedroom, two-storey luxury cottage in Gillamoor, a sleepy little village in the North York Moors. With its large garden and elegant interiors, it is the perfect country retreat for families and couples alike. There is a generous open-plan sitting room and dining area downstairs. Leather armchairs, warm throws and a wood burning stove make it a cosy and relaxing place to curl up in. You'll also find a TV with DVD and Wi-Fi is included throughout the house. There's a host of books and magazines available too if you fancy switching off from the tech and having a bit of a detox.

The dining area sits beside the cottage kitchen and is a really pleasant space to dine in. Relax with your morning coffee and croissant with the Sunday papers spread across the table. The fully equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, fridge-freezer and microwave oven, with shared laundry facilities available right next door.

Upstairs you'll find a king-size with an en-suite shower room. Opposite is the second bedroom featuring a single and a double. Both enjoy uninterrupted views of the garden and North York Moors landscape beyond. The family bathroom sits in between the two and has a bath with a shower overhead. Enjoy a soak in the tub after a bracing afternoon's walk across the Moors.

Stepping outside you will encounter a peaceful courtyard to the front of the cottage, but the real star of the show is the large garden to the rear. A generous manicured lawn stretches away to the mature trees at the bottom. It's an idyllic country garden and the perfect spot to enjoy lunch or dinner in the warmer months. Fire up the BBQ and enjoy some grilled treats when the sun is cracking the flags.

Please note - there are no charging facilities for electric cars - the nearest points are Monks Cross Shopping Park (27 miles) and York (29 miles) but also check online for updated information.

This beautiful holiday cottage is found at an enviable location. Sitting at the edge of Gillamoor, an attractive North York Moors village, the local amenities are just a few minutes' walk away. The village is 2.5 miles from the pretty town of Kirkbymoorside and some vibrant and attractive Yorkshire market towns like Pickering (10 miles) and Helmsley (8 miles); both of which have an abundance of good restaurants, tea-rooms and independent shops.

Beyond the village lies the North York Moors. A landscape like no other, it's a place of gentle rolling hills of heather, ancient woodlands and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. If you want to get away from it all take a trip to the top of the high central moorlands. The famous Blakey Ridge affords some of the best views in the country and is just a few minutes' drive from the cottage. And if walking is your thing, you are surrounded on all sides by some truly stunning routes.

Helmsley is very much alive as a market town and fresh North Yorkshire produce can be bought from the square. Helmsley has some of the region’s most impressive countryside on its doorstep with rushing rivers, rugged cliffs and sweeping valleys all a short drive away. It has an attractive square and the remains of a medieval castle. For a small town, there’s plenty going on. Helmsley is home to a variety of excellent shops, and even has its own arts centre. One of the prettiest edifices in the area is Rievaulx Abbey (11 miles), a great spot for a pleasant picnic amongst the ruins.

This is our second year and we love our Yorkshire house. We particularly like the enclosed garden, which is ideal for our three year old. The cottage is well equipped and its clear that the people who look after it care about the guests who stay, even remembering that our little boy loves tractors

Absolutely loved staying in this cottage. The huge garden was perfect for our energetic dogs. The location was excellent- very quiet with a pub serving great food nearby and great for exploring the moors and coastline.
