About Webstone Cottage

A warm welcome to Webstone Cottage, a chocolate-box stone cottage dating back to the 17th Century. Set within a picture-postcard estate village on the cusp of the North York Moors National Park, this darling property is reminiscent of the cottage in the Cameron Diaz movie 'The Holiday'. Bursting at the seams with period features and cosy character, you'll want to squirrel yourself away in here for weeks. Some excellent foodie pubs within walking distance too.

We have fallen head over heels in love with Webstone Cottage, one of the original workman's cottages for the local estate. As soon as you spot the climbing roses around the windows you realise this immaculate stone cottage ticks every box for an idyllic English country cottage escape. Step inside to find traditional comfortable interiors that wrap you in a warm embrace as you walk through the door.

Make your way through the entrance hall to the surprisingly generous sitting room. At the heart of the room is an original stone fireplace home to a wood-burning stove. Light up the fire and snuggle up on the easy chair with a cup of hot chocolate, sheer bliss! There's a TV with Freeview & a DVD player if you want to catch a movie. Wi-Fi is also available and board games, books and magazines are provided for off-line fun.

The galley-style kitchen sits next door and affords lovely views to the mature rear gardens. You'll find all the usual mod cons including a dishwasher, fridge, oven with ceramic hob and microwave. The cupboards are extremely well stocked with all the utensils and crockery you'll need to rustle up a fantastic meal.

Just around the corner is a further utility area home to a downstairs loo, freezer, washing machine and gorgeous Belfast sink ? perfect for washing off muddy boots after a day's walking in the moors. There is also a large larder area to store all your bits and pieces.

The kitchen opens up into the spacious dining room, an incredibly homely room which whisks you back to tea-time of yesteryear. Take your time and enjoy a long leisurely breakfast, mulling over the morning papers with the smell of bacon frying in the background. Cup of Yorkshire tea in hand of course! A stereo provides the soundtrack and an open fire lends atmosphere for your evening meal.

Both bedrooms and the family bathroom are upstairs. The master bedroom features a king size bed to stretch out on and a very sweet twin room with two single beds sits next door. You get a real sense of the history of the cottage in both bedrooms with exposed beams overhead and low-level stone frame windows. You'll find lots of built-in storage in each and both rooms look out towards the pretty village.

The bathroom is at the end of the landing, a good-sized room offering a bath with hand held shower set. Perfect for a long hot soak after exploring the surrounding countryside.

There is much to love outside too. To the front is a large lawned garden which looks out towards the village and beyond. The star of the show is the large mature rear gardens which come complete with apple trees and a good-sized terrace for al fresco dining. A charming little summer house sits at the top of the garden and is the perfect spot for an afternoon glass of Rose.

Webstone Cottage accepts 2 medium sized dogs.

Local Area

Webstone Cottage is set within a picture-postcard estate village on the western reaches of the North York Moors. 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 walks and cycle routes in every direction. You very close to the famous Cleveland Way as well as many more well-known and picturesque moorland walks, some of which lead all the way to the sea.

The estate village itself is real Miss Marple stuff, with the vibrant village of Osmotherley just a short walk away.  Well known as a starting point for walkers and cyclists, this gorgeous little place is real picture-postcard stuff. It also offers excellent facilities including 3 pubs (of which 2 are fantastic gastro pubs), a cafe, village stores and a fish 'n chip shop. 

If you're a bit of a foodie, this part of Yorkshire is packed with fantastic gastro-pubs, restaurants and delis. This includes The Black Swan at Oldstead which was named 'Best Restaurant in the World 2017' by TripAdvisor!

The beautiful market town of Helmsley is within easy driving distance and is well worth a visit.  If you fancy a little pampering you'll find the Verbena Spa here; perfect for a little me time indulgence!  There are also a host of charming independent shops as well as lots of options for eats, including a Michelin-starred restaurant.

The cottage is just a few miles away from the pretty market town of Northallerton where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street.  The wonderful Betty's Tearooms is here as is a fantastic local deli, Lewis & Cooper's Food Emporium and of course the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers. Nearby Yarm is also well worth a visit.

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