A delightful, Grade II listed, stone-built end-terraced cottage, on the edge of the attractive market town of Kirkbymoorside.

Lovely cottage - lovely location, central to everything
Miss Washtell, Benfleet, February 2013
A most comfortable cottage. We enjoyed everything that Crooked Cottage had to offer. Their in-house brochure advised of walks in the area and also restaurants in the village, all proved to be excellent. We would certainly recommend this cottage and Sykes cottages for the way we received all the necessary information well in advance, prior to us leaving our own home. Thank you!

The cottage was very comfortable and perfectly situated to explore North Yorkshire. The town of Kirkbymoorside was extremely friendly and everyone made us feel very welcome. Nice local pub about a minutes walk away, which is dog friendly too. We would recommend Crooked Cottage to anyone.
