This beautifully presented two-bedroom cottage with country charm enjoys a quiet spot at the edge of the North York Moors National Park with easy access to the Yorkshire coast.
Nestled in a peaceful village setting just 8.5 miles from the rugged Yorkshire coastline, this bijou retreat is a must for couples and small families alike. The chocolate-box appeal of Brompton-by-Sawdon is heightened further by the scattering of stone cottages, quintessential shops and a choice of pubs, and your accommodation aims to please in a similar fashion. Climb the steps and head through the wrought-iron railings, pausing to reflect at the pretty bistro-style table and chairs before discarding your coats and shoes in the handy porch. There’s a downstairs WC here too, no doubt a longed-for sight after a lengthy journey!
Shrug off your stresses ready to rejuvenate with a soothing glass of red and a quick rummage through your welcome pack. Follow the hallway to discover the hub of the home, a spacious open-plan haven styled with tasteful decor, chic furniture and cosy soft furnishings. Of an evening, the lounge area provides comfort in abundance, whether you are snuggling under a blanket with your hot cocoa and a family film on the TV, or basking in the glow of the electric fire and listening to your favourite tunes with the one you love.
Enjoy coffee and croissants around the table as natural light pours through the dual-aspect windows, sampling local jams and creamy butter. You could even set the children up with their cereal and juice and retreat to the quirky sunroom for breakfast in peace, dallying over the morning papers and planning your day over idle chatter. The wicker chairs are very comfortable, and it is a sheer treat to sit and look out into the courtyard dazzled by the morning sunshine.
The bright kitchen is finished in a country-cottage style with a decidedly contemporary twist, offering everything you could possibly need to cook up a storm. There is an electric oven and gas hob, fridge and dishwasher for all your culinary needs, and you’ll also have a useful utility room with a washing machine and an additional fridge/freezer and microwave at your disposal. Whip up decadent dinners, return from the coast with fish and chips to share, or fire up the BBQ and sizzle up a special supper in the courtyard garden. The hot tub is a wonderful spot to round off the day, especially if you have uncorked a bottle of something fizzing and delicious to savour at sunset. There’s secure bike storage for peace of mind after your daytime adventures, and on-street parking is directly outside the property.
Thoroughly sated and ready for slumber, the first floor reveals two bedrooms that are both crisply dressed and thoughtfully decorated. Tuck the children up in bed in the bunk room, a simple yet cosy room that’s ideal for sleepovers. Meanwhile, the gorgeous king-size bedroom boasts a sumptuous bed and ample storage space for all your things. Before retiring for the night, you’ll relish a pamper in the bathroom thanks to the large shower over the bath.
