A perfect retreat overlooking the river between the North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Coast, providing a comfortable, relaxing break for large families or groups of friends. This quiet village with the River Esk running through it is just 8 miles from the historic seaside town of Whitby with its historic Abbey and the 199 steps, beautiful beaches and bustling harbour. There is a direct train service from Egton Bridge to Whitby for those who would prefer this type of relaxing, scenic journey. Just 4 miles in the other direction across the North York Moors you will find Goathland, also known as the fictional ‘Aidensfield’ on TV's long-running Heartbeat series. Enjoy a trip on the North Yorkshire Moors heritage steam railway at Grosmont which is 2 miles away. Permits for fishing are available enabling guests to take full advantage of this tranquil waterside location.
Leave your coats and boots in the spacious entrance and head into the main house. The lounge with comfy sofas and a wood burner has fantastic views over the river. Choose your favourite seat and relax. Home to a Smart TV as well as games and books, all generations will find something to occupy themselves for chilled-out evenings. The spacious kitchen has all the equipment you could want including a small breakfast table for enjoying your morning coffee. It leads into the utility area where you will find a washing machine, fridge/freezer and microwave. From the kitchen, you can move through to the sunroom, a great space where good food, drink and conversation will flow easily around the large wooden table. The room is the perfect place to sit and take in the views and look out for the local birdlife, pheasants, rabbits or sheep, with lambs in spring. The kitchen is well equipped to rustle up some delicious meals or a picnic to take out for the day. The ground floor also boasts a contemporary shower room adjacent to a large twin bedroom, ideal for those who don't want to use the stairs or teenagers who would like a little bit of their own space. Stepping up to the first floor you will find three good-sized bedrooms, two king-size and one twin, all benefitting from far-reaching views. To complete the accommodation there is the contemporary family bathroom.
Outside, to the front, the terraced garden overlooks the river, the perfect place to sit with a glass of wine and watch the salmon jump in the autumn. At the rear of the house is the patio that overlooks the fields. Spend a relaxing time watching the birds visit the bird feeders in the garden or the animals in the fields beyond and breathe in the fresh country air. There is a charcoal BBQ you can enjoy on warmer days.
