  • A quintessentially English 17th-century cottage in a picturesque estate village on the western edge of the North York Moors National Park
  • The original features add an abundance of character inside and outside with front and rear gardens
  • Walking opportunities from your doorstep and the village of Osmotherley is within 1.5 miles
Property code: G0172

A warm welcome to this chocolate-box stone cottage dating back to the 17th century. Set within a picture-postcard village on the cusp of the North York Moors National Park, this gorgeous property is reminiscent of the cottage in the Cameron Diaz movie 'The Holiday'. Bursting at the seams with period features and cosy character, you'll want to squirrel yourself away in here for weeks. Some excellent foodie pubs are within walking distance too.

 

We have fallen head over heels in love with this property, one of the original workman's cottages for the local estate. As soon as you spot the climbing roses around the windows you realise this immaculate stone cottage ticks every box for an idyllic English country cottage escape. Step inside to find traditional comfortable interiors that wrap you in a warm embrace as you walk through the door.

 

Make your way through the entrance hall to the surprisingly generous sitting room. At the heart of the room is an original stone fireplace home to a wood burner. Light up the fire and snuggle up on the easy chair with a cup of hot chocolate, sheer bliss! There's a TV and a DVD player if you want to catch a movie. Wi-Fi is also available and board games, books and magazines are provided for offline fun.

 

The galley-style kitchen sits next door and affords lovely views to the mature rear gardens. You'll find all the usual mod cons including a dishwasher, fridge, oven with ceramic hob and microwave. The cupboards are extremely well stocked with all the utensils and crockery you'll need to rustle up a fantastic meal.

 

Just around the corner is a further utility area home to a downstairs loo, freezer, washing machine and gorgeous Belfast sink, perfect for washing off muddy boots after a day's walking on the moors. There is also a large larder area to store all your bits and pieces.

 

The kitchen opens up into the spacious dining room, an incredibly homely room which whisks you back in time. Enjoy a long leisurely breakfast, mulling over the morning papers with the smell of bacon frying in the background, a mug of Yorkshire tea in hand of course! A stereo provides the soundtrack and an open fire lends atmosphere for your evening meal.

 

Both bedrooms and the family bathroom are upstairs. The master bedroom features a king-size bed to stretch out on and a very sweet twin room with two single beds sits next door. You get a real sense of the history of the cottage in both bedrooms with exposed beams overhead and low-level stone frame windows. You'll find lots of built-in storage in each and both rooms look out towards the pretty village.

The bathroom is at the end of the landing, a good-sized room offering a bath with shower over. Perfect for a long hot soak or quick refresh after exploring the surrounding countryside!

 

There is much to love outside too. To the front is a large lawned garden which looks out towards the village and beyond. The star of the show is the large mature rear gardens which come complete with apple trees and a good-sized terrace for al fresco dining. A charming little summer house sits at the top of the garden and is the perfect spot for an afternoon glass of Rose.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 king-size and 1 twin
  • 1 bathroom with shower over the bath (upstairs) and 1 WC on the ground floor
  • Dishwasher, fridge, freezer, electric oven and hob, microwave, washing machine
  • Wood burner in the lounge (first set of logs and kindling provided)
  • Smart TV with DVD
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Board games, books and magazines available
  • Mature garden
  • Ample off-road parking
  • Village pubs, shop, café and fish and chip shop within 1.5 miles
  • Clay pigeon shooting at the end of the Thimbleby village
  • This property will be decorated for Christmas
  • Arrival: 16:00 onwards
  • Departure: before 10:00, unless otherwise stated in your arrival details
  • 2 dogs allowed. Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week
  • There is an Accidental Damage Deposit of £200 when booking at this property, however this may be waived for £25. We’ll provide more details about this when booking your holiday.

The cottage is set within a picture-postcard village on the western reaches of the North York Moors. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns.

 

The village itself has a real Miss Marple feel, with the vibrant village of Osmotherley a couple of miles away. Well known as a starting point for walkers and cyclists, this gorgeous area could be out of a painting. It also offers excellent facilities including three pubs (two of which are fantastic gastro pubs), a cafe, village store and a fish and chip shop.

 

If you're a bit of a foodie, this part of Yorkshire is packed with fantastic gastro pubs, restaurants and delis. The beautiful market town of Helmsley (25 miles) is within driving distance and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering you'll find the Verbena Spa here, perfect for a little indulgence. There are also a host of charming independent shops as well as lots of options for dining, including a Michelin-starred restaurant.

 

The cottage is 7 miles away from the pretty market town of Northallerton where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street. The wonderful Betty's Tearooms is here as is a fantastic local deli, Lewis & Cooper's Food Emporium and of course the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers. Nearby Yarm (15 miles) is also well worth a visit.

The cottage was as advertised. Well stocked apart from spare bin liners and a dish cloth. Unfortunately it would take more than a week to get used to the screeching peacock at dusk and dawn. Garden lovely but I wouldn't guarantee the front is secure for small dogs and it is a shame that there is no gate/fence to separate front and back garden. We uRead moresed the patio furniture as a makeshift barrier. A number of good walks from the cottage if dogs not gun-shy. Good chippy but odd opening times Hide

Fantastic cottage, we had a fabulous Christmas break. Comfortable, warm and well equipped - perfect for a quiet and relaxed time. We found the garden to be totally secure for our two pointers, which we wanted, but tiny dogs could find their way out if unattended The nearby shooting range could pose an issue for gun shy dogs, however.
