The larger of two barn conversions, this beautiful property is perfect for memorable getaways in the North York Moors.

This welcoming cottage is the larger of two beautiful barn conversions set high up in the North York Moors. This traditional sandstone barn has been lovingly decorated with a comfortable yet elegant touch. The cottage provides stunning views from the surrounding hills and is a short distance from the gorgeous foodie town of Helmsley, just 12.5 miles away.

A truly lovely property which has retained the rural charm of the original building during conversion. With exposed brickwork, ceiling beams and exceptional height in the downstairs living space, the owners have managed to create a real sense of space but also with a real element of cosiness. The interiors are finished with contemporary flair and the stunning open-plan living space features a lounge area complete with a wood burner and comfy leather sofas. Light the fire and settle down to a movie on the Smart Tv with DVD. There's also underfloor heating giving the whole house a warm and cosy ambience. The chunky oak dining table sits beside the kitchen and is the perfect spot to perch yourself with a glass of champagne while someone cooks up a storm in the kitchen.

The kitchen itself is well-equipped and comes complete with a fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and a dishwasher for your convenience. The open-plan arrangement means that no matter where you are in this space, there is still a sense of togetherness.

The cottage also has three spacious bedrooms, all en-suite, so no queues for the bathroom in the morning. Two of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor and feature built-in wardrobes, TVs and shower room facilities. One of these rooms has a king-size bed and the other is a double. The master bedroom occupies the entire first floor and is an impressive size with super king-size bed, generous bathroom with bath and separate walk-in shower and far-reaching views out across the moors. This is a perfect place to relax and unwind away from the rest of the house.

To the front of the cottage is a small lawned area which looks directly onto the country estate, and to the rear, a delightful sheltered patio complete with a BBQ for those balmy North York Moors summer evenings. This is a heavenly Yorkshire retreat for families and friends alike. A picnic table makes this an ideal spot to dine alfresco and make the most of being in the great outdoors.

This property can also be booked along with Partridge Cottage for larger group get-togethers or celebrations.

Please note, the cottage is set on a shooting estate.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 3 bedrooms - 1 ground-floor king-size, 1 ground-floor double and 1 super king-size
  • 2 ground-floor shower rooms and 1 bathroom with separate shower
  • Oven, hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher
  • Freeview TV and DVD
  • Garden with BBQ
  • Off-road parking in car park to the rear of the property
  • 2 dogs welcome
  • Travel cot and high chair
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Pub 3 miles, shop 5 miles

The cottage is set high up in a picturesque valley in the western reaches of the North York Moors. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the Western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns. There are some stunning walks right from your doorstep, and you are just a few miles from the famous Cleveland Way.

Just 7.5 miles north is the market town of Stokesley. Hosting a market every Friday on its handsome cobbled square, this charming Georgian town offers a host of independent shops, cafes and restaurants to try. There's also a nine-hole golf course and swimming pool. The neighbouring village of Great Ayton is also well worth a visit, an idyllic Yorkshire village set beside a meandering river, and once the boyhood home of Captain James Cook.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley is 12.5 miles away and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering, you'll find the Verbena Spa here; perfect for a little me-time indulgence. The vibrant village of Osmotherley is 13 miles away with its olde-worlde charm and two fantastic gastropubs. And no holiday in Yorkshire could be complete without an afternoon tea in Betty’s Tearooms, found in the pretty market town of Northallerton, 18 miles away.

You're also close to Castle Howard (25 miles), York (36.5 miles) and the North Yorkshire coast, so lots of choice for day trips.

This property is personally managed by Rupert.

The cottage is a barn conversion type & so plenty of space with large rooms in a modern style. Good outdoor eating area with bbq.

Great location if you want to be in the great outdoors. If you want to be in walking distance of a pub and other amenities this isnt the location for you but it suited us.

The cottage itself is excellent, sensible layout with spacious open plan living and large bedrooms. The only complaints I have relate to the hearing and beds. Like most places I have stayed I think they should have spent more on the mattresses. In the grand scheme of the cost of a cottage conversion an extra Few hundred pounds per mattress would have been money well spent. No idea how the heating worked, seemed to be on a timer and for us was far too hot the whole time, although I accept that others may prefer it that way.

Response from Gorgeous Cottages:

Hi James,Thank you for taking the time to complete a review.I am delighted you liked the location and the layout of Pheasant Cottage. Although the cottage is set on a shooting estate, the shoots arent every day and if asked, we can speak with the owner to enquire when the shoots will happen throughout a guests stay. Dom the owner is always on hand and happy to help guests with any queries they have during their stay and he could have explained how to change the temperature of the heating if asked. Mattresses are personal preference however, the owner does have plans to change the mattresses in the large twin bedroom.I do hope we can book you into another Gorgeous Cottage sometime in the future.Take careLouise Hide

Pheasant cottage is lovely. Well equipped, clean and very comfortable. It is very remote and if thats what you are looking for it is perfect. For us, we were looking for a dog friendly get away where we could walk the dogs easily and they had lots of freedom. Pheasant cottage is surrounded by pheasaRead morents literally and there is no garden space so the dogs always had to be inside or on leads when they left the house. And you had to walk along the road before you could let them run. The local footpaths are also closed off. It is a beautiful retreat but not quite what we wanted. But if youre looking for real escapism then it could be for you.

Response from Gorgeous Cottages:

Hi Karen,Thank you for taking the time to complete a review.I agree Pheasant Cottage is lovely and very well equipped with everything a Gorgeous Guest would require. The cottage is set high up in a picturesque valley in the western reaches of the North York Moors on a shooting estate and dogs arent allowed to run free in any part of the Moors due to sheep scaring and livestock problems. The local footpaths are used by many of our guests who enjoy to walk their dogs. I do hope we can welcome you back to Yorkshire sometime in the future and please call us before making a booking and we can recommend the perfect cottage for you to suit your requirements.Take careLouise Hide

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
