A Grade II-listed cottage, this property is an idyllic family retreat tucked on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. Relax, play and make new memories together.
Welcome to this beautiful Grade II listed sandstone cottage, set in a picture-postcard village just 20 miles from York. With its chocolate-box good looks, cosy elegant interiors and an excellent foodie pub just across the road, this might just be country cottage heaven. Dating back to the 17th century, the cottage is one of the oldest buildings in the village. It's bursting with character and charm at every turn, starting with its handsome double-fronted exterior. Step inside to discover a delightful and welcoming cottage with a perfect mix of traditional and contemporary style.
At the heart of the home is the generous living room with its warm oak floorboards underfoot and exposed oak beam overhead. A wood burner keeps you nice and toasty while you curl up with a glass of wine with your loved ones. For your evening entertainment, there's a TV & DVD player and a radio with an iPod connection if you want to provide your own background music. Wi-Fi is also included.
On the opposite side of the house is an additional living room/snug with a second TV, perfect if you have kids or teenagers as everyone can enjoy their own space. If you need extra accommodation, the day bed is in here can sleep up to two additional people if required, so in total the cottage sleeps up to eight. At the rear of the cottage, you'll find a refurbished kitchen which continues the blend of old and new. A cosy AGA and brick floor tiles provide the warmth and character whilst all the usual mod cons are provided for you including a dishwasher and electric oven. A traditional pantry next door houses a fridge/freezer, while a washing machine and dryer are available in the boot room next to the back door.
Just along the generous hallway is the atmospheric dining room. Original period features include exposed beams overhead, painted brick walls and a charming stone window seat looking out across the garden. The house was once thought to be the village bakery, and the arched wall in this room was at one time part of an original bread oven. Gather around the farmhouse table for dinner and a bottle or two of something lovely, catching up long into the night.
You'll find three bedrooms upstairs, the first of which is accessed via a staircase from the snug room. Set to the rear of the property this room comes complete with a double bed. At the opposite side of the house (accessed via a second staircase) is the spacious master bedroom featuring a king-size bed. Next door is the final twin bedroom. We love the quirky shaped walls up here reminding you of the history of the building. The brand new family bathroom is also upstairs. There's a bath to sink into each evening and a shower overhead. The tile-style flooring provides a dash of dramatic colour. The property also benefits from a generous ground floor shower room where you'll find a beautiful walk-in shower.
There is much to enjoy outside this gorgeous holiday cottage with its large enclosed lawned cottage garden to the front, perfect for throwing out a picnic blanket while the little ones run around. And to the rear a lovely private courtyard is the perfect suntrap and just the place for dining alfresco in the summer months. Patio furniture is also provided.
