Head into the North York Moors National Park or the North Riding Forest Park from this handsome stone cottage in the scenic village of Thornton le Dale or Thornton Dale. Overlooking the picturesque village square and pretty Thornton Beck, the enticing, two-bedroom retreat sleeps four guests and is well positioned for anyone wishing to pull on their walking boots and head straight off on woodland walks and countryside trails.
Just 2.5 miles from the vibrant market town of Pickering, with its medieval castle, museum and heritage trains along the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, it is also ideal for guests wishing to be close to shops and eateries. The location could also suit families keen to plan a day out to the coast at Scarborough, 22.5 miles away, while they are in this part of the world.
Take a step up to the front door and let yourselves in to find yourselves in a welcoming lounge. Put your feet up in here after your long walks, catch up on your favourite boxset on the Smart TV or open your holiday novels and unwind for a spell.
When mealtimes beckon, head through to the kitchen/diner to prepare tasty dishes with the local produce you have bought and then gather round the table together. On warm days, dine outside at the table next to the beck instead.
Both bedrooms are upstairs at this comfortable Yorkshire cottage. These include a double bedroom and a twin. The family bathroom is also here.
Sit outside on the terrace next to the beck whenever the weather permits and look for kingfishers and herons on the banks. Parking for this cottage is on the street, subject to availability.
