The Property

A lovely semi-detached Edwardian property, quietly tucked away in the pretty moorland village of Goathland. Furnished and decorated in a traditional style, this Goathland cottage has a lovely homely feel, which would appeal to families and friends wishing to discover the spectacular countryside of the North York Moors, but within a few minutes' drive of the historic port of Whitby. This characterful cottage in Goathland features a warm and cosy sitting room and a charming dining room with a built in dresser and additional comfy seating. The well-equipped kitchen overlooks the garden and open fields, whilst original stairs lead up from the spacious hall to three comfortable bedrooms. Outside this Goathland cottage, a small enclosed garden and patio provide a perfect spot to sit and enjoy a morning cup of coffee in the sunshine, before heading off for a day's activities. A pleasant stroll brings you into the centre of this delightful village, where sheep are free to roam the country lanes and the wide, green verges. The local inns serve good ales and excellent food, whilst the village store caters for everyday needs. With the addition of a couple of quaint tea rooms to indulge in, this Goathland cottage is the perfect place to stay! With wonderful walking opportunities from the door, this area is a walker's paradise, whilst for steam lovers, the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway runs through the village. Drive through the stunning scenery of these heather clad moors to the bustling town of Whitby, with its famous Abbey, cobbled, narrow streets and long sandy beaches, or explore the dramatic coastline with its pretty villages such as Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay. This Goathland cottage provides a good base in a superb location.

About the location

GOATHLAND

Whitby 9 miles.

The idyllic village of Goathland is set on the north eastern edge of the North York Moors National Park. It is surrounded by the rugged open moorlands which provide excellent walking country and on which sheep graze freely. The village has been popularised by the television programme Heartbeat. At the bottom of the village lies the station for the famous North York Moors Steam Railway. Here you may catch a train to nearby Pickering and relax as the train winds its way through the moors. Goathland is also within easy reach of the East Coast towns of Whitby and Staithes, making it a great holiday base.
