A bespoke bolthole for two guests, this property offers a rejuvenating break in an Elizabethan manor house. Looking out over extensive grounds and with a network of walks nearby, spend your days exploring near and far.

Elegant, stylish and comfortable - welcome to the gorgeous property inside a 16th century manor house in Moulton, a pretty village in North Yorkshire. This cosy one-bedroom cottage is a delicious mix of old and new. Nestling between the Dales and the North York Moors with a fantastic foodie pub just a stone's throw away, the location is excellent too. The perfect country hideaway for couples and solo travellers looking for a spot of grandeur. This one-bedroom holiday cottage occupies the first floor of a striking Elizabethan-era manor house. Looking out towards the summer house and garden on one side and a pretty courtyard to the other, it offers total peace and tranquillity for those who want to escape the hustle bustle of modern-day life.

 

Enter via a private entrance and up the stairs to your own little slice of heaven. The landing gives an immediate sense of personality with its well-placed antiques and graceful decor. Make your way into the open plan living area which includes the kitchen, dining area and cosy lounge. Each guest will arrive to a gorgeous welcome hamper, so pull up a chair and indulge in some home-baked treats while your loved one rustles up a cup of Yorkshire tea. The sleek contemporary-style kitchen comes complete with everything you will need during your stay including a hob, oven, fridge (with freezer drawer) and a microwave. Whilst you rustle up an indulgent cooked breakfast take some time to admire the original artwork on the walls.

 

Later, as the evening draws in, fire up the wood burner and stake your claim to the armchair by the fire with a good book - no-one minds if you change into your pyjamas a little early. And if reading seems like too much effort snuggle down to a movie on the TV or catch up with things online with the high-speed broadband.

 

The huge master bedroom boasts a super-king-size with bespoke headboard, an original fireplace and double aspect windows. The bed can also be set as two singles upon request at the point of booking. The bathroom is just next door, a statement in period style with its antique roll-top bath and neutral hues. Draw yourself a bath each evening and enjoy the sights and sounds of an English country garden from the comfort of the warm water.

 

The outside space is equally impressive. You have direct access to stunning grounds which include a garden lawn, patio area, summerhouse and an immaculate hard-surface tennis court. There's lockable storage for bicycles and a BBQ for those balmy summer evenings.

This property has a great location just a few miles away from Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast walk. Set between the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, and with less than an hour's drive to the coast and York, it's an ideal basecamp from which to strike out and discover these unique Yorkshire locations. Set in a beautiful Yorkshire village, it's a relaxing and peaceful spot to hide away in for a while. And if you're a bit of a foody there are several excellent dining pubs in the area.

Richmond (8.2 miles), an historic market town with much to offer the discerning holiday-maker, is also just a few miles away. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. Just a short drive through Richmond takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales proper. Head up towards Reeth and on towards Hawes in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside.

To take in the North York Moors head in the opposite direction and brave it up Sutton Bank, the view from the top said by some to be the finest in all of England. The gorgeous market town of Helmsley makes for the perfect pit-stop with its old shops and interest castle ruins. Also head to the majestic Rievaulx Abbey for views and picnicking prospects.

The cottage and facilities were excellent. It was very comfortable and the cleanliness was second to none. The only thing we missed was not having a shower and being in our seventies we found it difficult getting in and out of the bath.

The is a really lovely place for two people. The wood burner is great even for cool summer days. Then you own garden area with evening sun and a fire pit bbq and glass house. You are very much part of this beautiful Elizabethan Manor House, with your own rooms reflecting the house. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place.
