About Double Cream Cottage

***Just Launched Sept 2018!***

Indulge yourself with a stay at Double Cream Cottage, a gorgeous 3-bedroom barn conversion set on the cusp of the North York Moors National Park. With its generous open-plan living areas, fantastic indoor games barn and stunning lounge complete with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, this is the perfect choice for families looking for spacious, luxury accommodation.

Dating back to the 1800s, Double Cream Cottage has been subject to a complete refurbishment transforming it from an old farm building into a spacious and comfortable family holiday home. Step inside to discover the wow-factor open-plan living area home to the kitchen, dining room and lounge. This generous space welcomes you in with its bright décor and heated oak flooring underfoot.

Let's explore the lounge first, a dramatic and light-filled space enjoying uninterrupted stunning views of the Cleveland Hills from its floor to ceiling windows. Patio doors lead you directly out into the garden and overhead you'll find traditional carved oak beams. When you can drag yourself away from the views you'll find lots to entertain inside too. Catch a family movie on the 40-inch SMART TV or just snuggle up on the comfy sofas and chairs for a good old catch-up. A docking station and Bluetooth speaker provides the soundtrack. And don't worry, Wi-Fi is provided if you have teens in tow!

Off-line fun is provided too with board games, books and toys for children. Maps are also included for the walkers.

Make your way into the well-equipped kitchen to discover it comes complete with all the usual mod cons. There's an induction hob, fridge/freezer, oven, microwave and dishwasher, a must for making short work of those family-sized meals. There's a washing machine in the boot room next door, perfect if you want to wash muddy walking trousers or little one's clothes. There's also a handy downstairs loo.

Pick up some local Yorkshire produce at the Farmer's market in nearby Stokesley and settle down to eat at the chunky farmhouse table. Seating 6 people comfortably, this is a table to create some special family memories around.

There are 3 bedrooms in Double Cream Cottage, all of which are upstairs. Parents of younger ones will appreciate the bespoke stair-gates at the top and bottom of the oak staircase. The first bedroom is the fabulous master bedroom complete with a super king-size bed, Juliet balcony and en-suite shower room. Throw open the French doors and drink in those views! Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both twin rooms home to two full-size single beds.

The family bathroom is also set on the first floor and includes a shower head attached to the bath.

The exterior of this luxury barn conversion is equally impressive with its fully enclosed lawned garden and large patio wrapping around the barn. Let the kids burn off some steam while you enjoy a sundowner overlooking those beautiful landscapes. Patio furniture and a sun parasol are provided so you can dine al fresco.

Finally explore the impressive indoor games barn; guaranteed to keep the whole family entertained with its table tennis, football, tennis and badminton facilities.

Keen cyclists should note Double Cream Cottage provides lockable bike storage and an outdoor wash area so you can make the most of the breath-taking cycle routes in the area.

Please note there are animals in the adjacent paddocks so children and dogs must be supervised.

Local Area

Double Cream Cottage has been converted from an historic old barn that was part of a farm which supported the neighbouring Meynell Hall. The hall is a Grade II listed building which was formally known as Broctune Abbey, home to a group of Cistercian monks many hundreds of years ago.

Its set in open countryside with stunning views of the Cleveland Hills and the Wainstones, part of the famous Cleveland Way walk. The cottage is just outside Great Broughton, a pretty village on the cusp of the North York Moors National Park. This lovely village offers two great dining pubs just a 15-minute walk across the fields from the cottage.

Just a few miles further is the beautiful 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 9-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.

Heading in the other direction takes you into the North York Moors proper. 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 including the famous Cleveland Way just a few miles away. The much-loved landmark Roseberry Topping is another favourite walk in the area.  The beautiful market town of Helmsley is within easy driving distance and is a must on any visit to this area.  If you fancy a little pampering you'll find the Verbena Spa here - perfect for a little me time indulgence – and the Michelin-starred Star Inn at Harome as well as lots of other excellent foodie options in the area.

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