Once a drover's inn, this property has embraced its latest chapter in style. Elegant, spacious and inviting, the interiors demand rest and relaxation, whilst outside wild beauty and adventure calls.
A stunning two-bedroom stone cottage nestled on the cusp of the North York Moors, the building dates back over 400 years. This beautiful and historic property has been completely refurbished to offer the very best in self-catering accommodation. And surrounding you on all sides are heather-clad hills and breathtaking Yorkshire countryside - just heavenly!
In a former life, this accommodation was once a drovers' inn; the wide stretches of turf here provided a good overnight stopping place or 'stance' for the drovers' cattle on their way down from Scotland. The history and character of the building remain in abundance, with all of today's modern comforts thrown in.
Step inside to discover a handsome reception hallway with Yorkshire flagstones underfoot. Plenty of space to hang up coats and store muddy walking boots after a hike across the moors. With a cosy sofa and easy chair by the window it's a nice spot to snuggle away for the afternoon with a good book.
To the left of the entrance hall is the generous kitchen / diner which boasts uninterrupted views from every window. The gorgeous kitchen features dark grey units, solid oak work-tops, and a Belfast sink. The natural spring water running through the taps is a nice surprise. You'll find all mod cons in here including an induction hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a range cooker. There's also a coffee machine for that morning cuppa and a gas stove in the inglenook fireplace keeps everything nice and toasty. There's a dining table set in the kitchen, perfect for those lazy holiday breakfasts where you can take your time over the morning papers. And for those more formal evening meals, there's a further beautiful dining area within the main living area.
This area is also home to the lounge where the star of the show is a gorgeous wood and brick inglenook fireplace. Complete with a large wood-burning stove this really feels like the heart of the home, where you can settle down for the evening by the glow of a real fire. Catch up over a glass or two of wine or enjoy a movie night on the TV.
Both bedrooms are on the first floor and feature luxurious king-size sleigh beds. Both rooms also enjoy en-suite shower rooms with top quality Stoves sanitary wear and complimentary Temple Spa toiletries. The perfect rooms to retreat to after a long day's sight-seeing. And the views when you wake each morning are the ultimate inspiration for the next day's adventures. Outside you'll find a very pleasant gravelled seating area which takes full advantage of the stunning scenery. Settle down to lunch here during the summer months or enjoy an atmospheric sundowner as the heather lights up in the evening sun. An old chequers board on the wall of the cottage reminds you of the history and character of this wonderful Yorkshire cottage.
