Gales Lodge is an exceptional 5 Star 1-bedroom luxury cottage set in a charming North York Moors village. With a stylish country-chic interior and the village pub (a 17th Century Inn) just a stroll away, it is an idyllic Yorkshire retreat for couples and new parents alike.
As soon as you walk through the door you can sense the quality of the interior furnishings and fixtures. Gales Lodge has been lovingly crafted into a comfortable and elegant holiday home. From the flagstone flooring to the wood burner in the corner, everything has been designed to create a warm and peaceful ambience. Brightly coloured fabrics contrast beautifully with the natural hue of the stone and walls. The open-plan kitchen and dining area is a great space to relax in, allowing you to chat to your loved one whilst cooking up a storm.
In the living room you'll find an LCD TV and of course that cosy wood-burner to curl up in front of. A DVD Player and Wi-Fi are provided too. And if you enjoy a good delve into a glossy, they are provided too!
The hallway leads through to the spacious master-bedroom equipped with a super king-size bed. There are lovely views out to the patio area from here. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower - perfect if you prefer not to climb over the bath for your morning shower.
Outside Gales Lodge has a charming patio garden complete with table and chairs. A delightful spot to enjoy breakfast in the warmer months. And if the mood takes you venture out of the cottage into the village for a pub lunch. The local inn serves great food and has an excellent wine and real ale list.
Gales Lodge has an enviable location. Sitting on the edge of Gillamoor, an attractive North York Moors village, the local village pub is just a few minutes' walk away. A few miles in the other direction takes you to the pretty town of Kirbymoorside and then on to vibrant and attractive Yorkshire market towns like Pickering and Helmsley; both of which have an abundance of good restaurants, tea-rooms and independent shops.
Beyond the village lies the North York Moors. A landscape like no other, it's a place of gentle rolling hills of heather, ancient woodlands and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. If you want to get away from it all take a trip to the top of the high central moorlands. The famous Blakey Ridge affords some of the best views in the country in our opinion, and is just a few minutes' drive from the cottage. And if walking is your thing, you are surrounded on all sides by some truly stunning routes.
Gales Lodge is also close to the North Yorkshire Coast, with the gothic town of Whitby and the picture-postcard fisherman village of Robin Hood's Bay less than 30 minutes' drive. Take a day trip here and experiences the sights sounds and tastes of Yorkshire's coastline. Fish 'n Chips at the Magpie Cafe is a must!
Hutton-le-Hole, quite possibly the most beautiful village in the North York Moors, is just around the corner and you're also close to Castle Howard and York, so lots of choice for day trips.
