Filled to the brim with signature sandstone properties and Yorkshire architecture, the town itself boasts both beauty and character. Sample a local tipple in the town’s local breweries or gin distillery, or keep it simple with an evening spent in one of the welcoming public houses.
Situated less than 0.5 miles from the town centre is this magnificent country cottage. This handsome property offers a generous allocation of space for eight guests across four bedrooms, perfect for two smaller families travelling together or a holidaymaking gang of friends. Perfectly suited to groups with a range of interests, the property offers easy access to the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Parks for walking, hiking or cycling, along with close proximity to Richmond and Ripon for less strenuous expeditions.
Step inside to uncover a fantastic holiday home with a country-meets-contemporary decor throughout. You’ll be pleased to find that original elements including stone-flagged flooring and feature fireplaces have been lovingly maintained to retain the cottage’s historic character, whilst the surrounding decor has been updated to offer a stylish home from home.
Enter into the cosy lounge which boasts an attractive ambience, complete with a wood burner for keeping the entire space snug throughout the colder months. A sprawling sofa and matching comfy armchair offer an inviting space to hunker down on nights in or rainy days spent indoors, simply grab a throw and hunker down. Feel free to select a book or board game from the bookcase, or simply switch on the Smart TV to enjoy a family favourite TV show or film.
The lounge opens up into a bright and spacious kitchen/diner which offers excellent social space and a bustling hub of the home. A quality dining table creates a centre point of the dining area, complete with farmhouse-style wooden chairs and more than enough room for eight guests to comfortably dine together.
The kitchen itself sits beside stunning bi-fold glass doors which provide direct access to the patio. Even in the winter months, these glass doors allow the bright and fresh kitchen to be flooded with light. Naturally, summer stays are made even better with these doors flung wide open, perfect for dining alfresco or simply letting children play whilst meals are being prepared.
An abundance of surface space, including a kitchen island with a breakfast bar, is on offer for the chef of the group to make use of. Whether you’re preparing a full English for eight or a fantastic Sunday roast, integrated appliances, including the double electric oven, ensure that this job is no harder than it needs to be. Be sure to enjoy a Nespresso coffee or two from the machine whilst preparing the former.
From the kitchen, step through into a handy utility room which also provides direct access to the rear patio. Here you’ll find an abundance of room for storing outerwear, a handy bench for pulling off those muddy boots or wellies, and helpful washing facilities.
When it's time to turn in, there are four bedrooms to rest your head. The first of these can be found right here on the ground floor. This master bedroom is a beautiful king-size with a majestic feature fireplace and charming decor. Put clothes away in the antique wardrobe and sink into a comfortable bed for a truly unbeatable night's sleep.
Three equally inviting bedrooms can be accessed just upstairs on the first floor. Made up of a king-size, a double and a twin, each one of these bedrooms promises to facilitate a sumptuous night of 8-hours sleep. The double bedroom also benefits from the luxury of an en-suite with a shower and WC.
A beautifully finished family bathroom completes the first floor. With a pretty colour scheme and fantastic tiles, this spacious bathroom is a quality space to get ready each morning or lounge around in the tub late at night.
Yorkshire flagstones pave the pretty patio to the rear, a perfectly enclosed space where children can play and fresh air can be enjoyed. The space comes with furniture for dining alfresco or sitting back with a good book. Finally, find an additional secure storage area where your bikes and other outdoor equipment can be kept out of harm's way.
