This delightful cottage is set in a picturesque village near the centre of the North York Moors and makes a romantic bolthole for a couple looking for a peaceful retreat in lovely rural surroundings.
This compact but very sweet one-bedroom holiday cottage is located in the heart of Rosedale Abbey; a handsome little village at the geographical centre of the North York Moors. With its boutique-style bedroom, luxurious en-suite, and small but comfortable lounge this is the perfect romantic escape for active couples looking to get away to the country. And it's all within easy walking distance of three great pubs, two cafes, and a gallery. Not only this, the cottage welcomes two dogs too so you can experience great adventures with your canine companions.
Dating back to 1850, this gorgeous one-bedroom bolthole has a luxury hotel ambience with all of the additional benefits of a small self-catering country cottage. The ground-floor accommodation consists of a charming sitting room showcasing paintings by local artists on the walls and with a feature fireplace. Other contemporary comforts include free Wi-Fi, an iPod docking station and a variety of games, books and toys so there's plenty to keep you occupied. There are also local maps for the walkers among you. This leads through to a compact but charming kitchen with a dishwasher included. Upstairs, the first floor of the cottage is taken up entirely by a beautiful double-height bedroom and spacious en-suite. Please note, the stairs in the cottage are quite steep so please take this into consideration when booking.
It's lovely and light upstairs, with two windows affording views to Hamer Moor across Rosedale Abbey. A king-size bed, TV and hotel-quality bed linen adds a touch of indulgence. The en-suite is stylish with clean lines, a walk-in high-pressure shower and complimentary toiletries completing the luxury cottage feel. There is also a large cupboard with a clothes washer and dryer.
Outside, the cottage has a small southeast-facing unfenced patio accessed via a right-of-way through a neighbour's private garden (not for public use); and facing right onto the lovely medieval churchyard of the old Priory grounds. There are also pretty views across Rosedale Abbey's village green and onto the Moors that surround the little village. From the green, five country lanes head off to all points of the compass, taking you to beautiful locations across the North York Moors and beyond. The cottage also has some off-road parking for added convenience.
