Property code: OC-WA757

Dating back to the 19th century, this detached riverside stone-built cottage serves as an ideal base for couples or older families to explore Yorkshire’s beauty spots. It’s on the stunning Coast to Coast walking route, 8 miles from the historic seaside town of Whitby, 4 miles from Goathland (also known as the fictional "Aidensfield" on TV’s long-running Heartbeat series) and 2 miles from the North York Moors Heritage Steam Railway at Grosmont. Permits for fishing are available, enabling guests to take full advantage of this tranquil waterside location.

On the ground floor, the living room features a large bay window allowing light to flood in, complemented by a striking wooden beamed ceiling. A separate dining room — also with a wooden beamed ceiling — offers space to share meals together, while vintage armchairs positioned beside the open fire are conducive to some quiet time, or to get lost in a good book. Also on this level is the contemporary kitchen, a king-size bedroom and a bathroom with underfloor heating. A second king-size bedroom is located on the first floor.

The lovingly tended garden wraps around the property, with fruit and blossom trees, shrubbery, rose bushes and spring bulbs. Outdoor furniture placed in a secluded section of the grounds that are bordered on one side by trees, allows guests to enjoy a meal while surrounded by nature.

Beautiful cottage in a gorgeous location. Less than a minute walk to the river and stepping stones. Our dog loved playing in the river and garden. We loved our stay at the cottage.... it is so cosy and picturesque. Cottage was nice and clean, with everything we needed in the kitchen.

We really would have liked to stay longer and would recommend to friends. I hope we get to stay there again. The decor is alittle out dated but this was not an issue whatsoever. Hide

This cottage was a last minute replacement to our original booking due to flooding. We were very pleased with the arrangement of a new property and was able to start our holiday as planned in the area of our choice. We did compromise on having two double beds instead of a double and 2 twins but this was a minor inconvenience.

Our concerns relate to the lack of parking attached to the property. It is impossible to park outside due to narrow width of the road which meant carrying the luggage for some distance. Clearly an issue since the comments in the house book mentioned adverse reactions from local residents if the visitors parked further down the road outside theRead moreir cottages. We are surprised that this issue was not highlighted in your prospectus so visitors are forewarned. In addition the steep stone steps leading upto the cottage from the road are well worn and require great care particularly if you are carrying luggage. Hide
