The cottage is located in Great Habton, a peaceful little village featuring a lovely pub and a scattering of houses. Great Habton is set in the rolling Howardian Hills on the cusp of the North York Moors. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the southern Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns.
The town of Pickering is just a few miles away. You can catch a steam train here taking you all the way to Whitby via some picture-postcard villages and stunning scenery- more below. Pickering itself makes for a nice afternoon's mosey with its pretty houses, shops and tea-rooms. Malton has a similar appeal and is also just a few miles drive.
The beautiful market town of Helmsley is a little further on but is well worth a visit. A real foodies paradise with some great restaurants, cafes and Delis. If you fancy a little pampering you'll find a fantastic day Spa here; the Verbena Spa. Perfect for a little me time indulgence!
There is a theme park and zoo at Flamingoland just a few miles away and Eden Camp, a fascinating modern history museum, is also close by. Castle Howard, York and the North Yorkshire coast are all within easy reach too, so lots of choice for day trips.
