Easby House Cottages

Great Ayton 2.5 miles. These two luxurious barn conversions are attached to the owner's property but with their own private access, nestle in a remote rural area in the quiet hamlet of Easby near Great Ayton. Lovingly converted to an exceptionally high standard, they provide excellent accommodation for those seeking peaceful seclusion, but with easy access to both the magnificent surrounding countryside and the nearby coast. Furnished in a contemporary style, you’ll find tasteful decoration throughout, with open plan living areas incorporating well-equipped modern kitchens and very comfortable sitting areas, both with cosy woodburning stoves creating a lovely ambience. Most of the bedrooms boast en-suite shower rooms and a TV with built-in DVD. Set within stunning grounds, both cottages have their own private patio gardens, along with access to 21 acres of shared meadowland, where magnificent views stretch over the surrounding hills. These cottages provide an excellent base for exploring the stunning scenery of the North York Moors National Park, and are ideal for keen ramblers and cyclists as they overlook Cringle Moor and the famous weathered Wainstones, which wait for your discovery along the Cleveland Way. Other spectacular trails can be found close by at the distinctive Roseberry Topping and Carlton Bank. The picturesque village of Great Ayton is just a few minutes’ drive away and is steeped in history, aided by its connections to Captain Cook. Visit the museum that used to serve as his schoolroom, or enjoy a relaxed picnic beside the river. The historic market town of Stokesley is a couple of miles away with its wide cobbled streets lined with tempting tea rooms, pubs, restaurants, and independent shops to peruse. Travelling further afield you will find the market towns of Helmsley and Thirsk, or why not enjoy a day trip discovering the dramatic heritage coastline at popular Whitby or Staithes? Two attractive, well-placed holiday cottages, perfect all year round.

About the location

GREAT AYTON

Stokesley 3 miles; Guisborough 7 miles; Middlesbrough 8 miles.

The attractive village of Great Ayton lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, at the foot of the Cleveland Hills. Great Ayton is famous for being the boyhood home of Captain Cook, and is also mentioned in the Domesday Book. The village consists of a mixture of pretty stone cottages and some new development housing. Great Ayton has two village greens, with a river running alongside, making it a popular picnic spot in the summer months. To the north of the village, the view is dominated by Roseberry Topping, a 330-metre hill. In the village are a good range of shops and inns, which, together with restaurants and cafes, cater well for holidaymakers. There is also the old school, now converted into the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum. Around the village are several interesting walks, and Great Ayton makes a great base for walkers wishing to explore the stunning countryside. A good base for market towns, the lovely countryside and, just a short drive, the East Coast.
