About Curlew Cottage

Welcome to Curlew Cottage, set down a quiet gated lane, on the edge of one of the most picturesque villages of the North York Moors National Park, this beautiful stone-built cottage oozes charm and character.

Inside the generous accommodation is both comfortable and stylishly presented with space for the whole family to relax. The cottage sits within lovely mature gardens with a delightful terrace and barbeque house. There are panoramic views from almost every room over adjoining farmland towards the moors and dales of the National Park - it really is the perfect family retreat.

Downstairs there's a large living room with an open fire to gather around each evening (logs are provided for you). A SMART TV if you fancy chilling with a movie. Wi-Fi and high speed broadband is also available if you need to catch up online.

The Farmhouse-style kitchen with its breakfast bar and cosy AGA keeping everything nice and toasty in the winter months has all that you might need for rustling up delicious family meals. In addition to the AGA there is an electric cooker, hob and microwave. A utility room houses the washing machine & dryer. The adjoining light-filled dining area looks out over the beautiful south-facing garden. A chunky oak table seats up to 8 people comfortably. For those special occasions, and subject to advance booking, the owners offer a bespoke dining service with a Cordon Bleu trained chef and interesting wine list.

To keep everyone entertained there is also a large games room downstairs which features a wide-screen TV, sofa and beanbags, and pool/ping pong table among other distractions. With its elegant painted wood panelling it's like having your very own private members club to escape to. There's also a downstairs cloakroom for your convenience.

The bedrooms are set out across the 1st and 2nd floors. Bedroom one on the 1st floor is a lovely large room boasting a king size bed with an en suite shower room and WC. Bedrooms two and three are also on this floor, both charming twin rooms which share the family bathroom.

The bathroom features a bath, separate walk-in shower and WC. The fourth bedroom has the top floor all to itself and has a double bed with en suite shower room.

There is so much to enjoy outside this wonderful holiday home, guests are welcome to use the paths over the owner's private estate that is home to over 80 species of birds and animals including the wonderful Roe Deer. The beautiful south-facing garden has a lovely lawned area, perfect for stretching out with a blanket and a good book in the summer months. There's also a terrace for al-fresco dining and a BBQ House which is useable throughout the year.

Lockable storage for bikes is available, and if you haven't brought your own, there are mountain and road bikes available that you can hire during your stay. Extra wellies are provided too if you fancy a hike across the fields without ruining your best boots!

Local Area

The location of Curlew Cottage is just magical - nestling on the edge of the village of Goathland (famous as the location for the TV series Heartbeat) it's within short walking distance of everything that this stunning moorland village has to offer. There are a handful of gorgeous little tea-rooms, sweet village shops, a Post Office and several good hotels and pubs all offering good food and all within a few minutes' walk of Curlew Cottage. 

The beautifully preserved heritage train station at Goathland, famed for it's feature as Hogsmeade station in the popular Harry Potter films, sits on the North York Moors Railway line from Whitby to Pickering. You can hop on a steam train here throughout the year and enjoy a traditional ride through some truly stunning scenery.   

If you enjoy the outdoors you are in heaven here as the cottage is set at the heart of the North York Moors National Park. There are walking trails in every direction. Unenclosed and unsurpassed this stunning landscape, famed for its wild moorland, hidden dales, pretty villages and market towns, is simply breath-taking. See if you can discover one of the several waterfalls in the area including Mallyan Spout, Falling Foss, and Thomason Foss.

Take a tour of the impossibly pretty towns and villages in the area, Egton, Danby, Castleton, Rosedale. The quaint hamlet of Beck Hole is just down the road and boasts one of the smallest and best-preserved pubs in Yorkshire, it also boasts a very good real ale. A few miles east from here takes you to the stunning North Yorkshire coastline, a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, this is proper bucket 'n spade territory. That's not to say it's stuck in the past, in fact the coast's villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside upmarket champagne and oyster bars.

This region is best known for the gorgeously gothic town of Whitby. Playing host at one time to Romans, Saxons, Celts and Danes amongst others, the town's rich heritage is immediately obvious. Straddling the river Esk and dominated by the 13th Century ruins of St Hilda's Abbey on the East Cliff, Whitby's crooked cobbled streets and picturesque harbour have been a magnet for artists and tourists alike for centuries.

Although you could happily spend the weekend mooching about the independent shops, bars and cafes along Whitby's bustling medieval streets, it's well worth striking out to sample some of the other coastal villages nearby.  Robin Hood's Bay is one of the most popular coastal locations in Yorkshire, or the UK for that matter.  The village is a maze of cobbled streets and higgledy piggledy houses which seem to tumble down towards the sea.  Sandsend, Staithes and Runswick Bay are also all within easy driving distance, each with their own unique charm.
