Bright accents, feature walls and antique styling are just some of the characterful features that make this beautiful Yorkshire house an instant home-from-home. In this extremely family-friendly property, both children and adults alike will be made to feel immediately welcome. You can even bring along two dogs to stay with you, perfect for those who’ve come to the area to enjoy some of the many delightful walks that surround the vibrant town of Thirsk.
If you’ve just returned to the property from a walk along the bridleway at the back of the cottage or perhaps a bike ride in the Howardian Hills AONB, you’ll be best heading inside via the extremely versatile boot room. Equipped with laundry facilities, this boot room offers a fantastic space to take coats off, leave walking boots behind and clean off muddy paws before continuing inside to get cosy and comfortable. The property is also equipped with a spacious garage where you can store any bikes or outdoor equipment when not in use.
Once cleaned up and ready to relax, make a beeline for the kitchen/diner and put the kettle on. This farmhouse-inspired room is bright and beautiful with painted cabinets, cute country-style features and a breakfast table where all of your meals can be enjoyed. In the winter months, you can create an extremely snuggly atmosphere here with the Aga on to fill the space with a warm, comfortable heat. Don’t worry about having to rustle up your favourite dishes on the Aga, however, as there’s an electric oven and hob on-hand ready for mealtimes.
This same warm and welcoming atmosphere is continued in the lounge which is also on the ground floor. Having enjoyed dinner and cleaned dishes away into the dishwasher, step on through and make yourselves comfortable. With traditional design features and a fireplace with a working wood burner, this room is simply perfect for whiling away a relaxing night together. Switch on the Smart TV and chose a family favourite film to see you through to bedtime.
Along with a handy downstairs WC with charming dog-themed feature wallpaper, this property is served by a first-floor bathroom which can be shared by all of the family. Get a refreshing shower in the morning or slide into a bubbly bath late at night.
Also on this floor sits three beautifully presented bedrooms, all of which boast views of the garden and surrounding countryside scenery. The largest room is a wonderful king-size, complete with a wrought-iron bed frame, plenty of storage solution and a Teamaid for your first cup of tea each morning. Both this bedroom and the adjacent double bedroom boast beautiful feature fireplaces and country-style wooden doors which add to the traditional style of the place.
The third and final bedroom is a pretty twin with delightful accents. Complete with two comfortable single beds and a dressing table, this slightly smaller room has been perfectly appointed for any two sharers or younger guests.
Benefiting from such a rural location, the property offers an extremely generous allocation of enclosed and entirely private garden. Set to lawn and boasting mature shrubbery all around, this beautiful garden is the place to be come summer months. You’ll find a small patio area with outdoor furniture, ideal for bringing dinner outside, and a gas BBQ for those balmy summer afternoons. The garden has been thoughtfully ‘dog-proofed’, meaning you can let your pets play freely without any fear of escapees.
