The property

This charming studio cottage is part of the former station master's house, in the hamlet of Liverton Mines on the outskirts of Loftus village.

Offering all ground floor accommodation, the property has been tastefully modernised to a high standard.

Entry is via a small kitchen, which leads into the spacious open plan studio, which incorporates a comfortable sitting area, a dining table and a double bed, plus there is a contemporary fully-tiled shower room.

With fine attention to detail, the property feels warm and welcoming, in a pleasant setting.

Outside, to the rear is a private patio garden, directly adjacent to a commercial goods train line, with six trains trundling by each day.

This is not a fast or noisy line, and will undoubtedly interest railway enthusiasts.

In fact, part of the fencing has been cut away to afford a better view!

Close to some lovely sandy beaches and excellent walking trails, this station annexe is well placed for couples wishing to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside and the popular seaside towns of Saltburn and Whitby.

The nearby fishing villages of Staithes and Runswick Bay have strong Captain Cook connections, with small, pretty coves, coble landings and quaint, tiny fishermen's cottages that tumble down towards the sea.

Explore the narrow, cobbled alleyways and partake in coffee and cakes on the waterfront.

The wide expanses of the North York Moors are on the doorstep, with many attractions, including fishing on the nearby Scaling Dam, the Danby Moors Tourist and Exhibition Centre and the steam railway at Grosmont.

An excellent base for a varied and interesting holiday.

About the location

LOFTUS

Saltburn-by-the-Sea 4 miles; Hinderwell 6 miles; Whitby 14 miles.

The village of Loftus lies 14 miles north of Whitby on the east coast of Yorkshire. Originally an old alum mining village, it comprises terraced houses, old stone cottages and a few grand stone dwellings. The long and lively main street hosts a variety of shops, eateries, pubs, banks and an impressive town hall. Lying behind the main street is a leisure centre with an excellent swimming pool. Loftus is well placed for discovering the small coastal villages of Runswick Bay and Staithes, the latter being a popular choice for artists. Four miles to the north is the elegant spa town of Saltburn with its golf club and long pier stretching over the wide sands. The stunning North Yorkshire Moors countryside is on the doorstep and the Jurassic fossil coast lies to the south.

Note: Not suitable for children and infants.
