A quality sympathetic conversion of old stone farm buildings, resulting in two individual holiday homes of great character and comfort. Exceptionally high standard of furnishing and equipment. One property has ramp access. Near to the farmhouse, they offer peace and tranquillity. Situated high on the moors in a quiet National Park village above Newtondale where the steam railway takes you up the valley and across the moors to the coast - one of the most spectacular railway journeys in Britain. Visitors are also welcome to explore the footpaths through wild flower pasture and beautiful woodlands. Livery is available, by arrangement, for those with horses.
Converted from a lovely old stone threshing barn which overlooks the village of Newton, this holiday cottage offers superb ‘upside down’ accommodation and is equipped, furnished and decorated to a very high standard.

Previous visitors' comments about Gateside:
I liked the upstairs living area which with its exposed beams seemed spacious and light. The kitchen was beautifully appointed. The house was extremely well equipped and had everything that was needed.

The village is very, very nice and peaceful, which is exactly what I expected after visiting the year before. There is lots to see and do in the local area making for a great place to stay for a holiday. Try the drive over the moors to the North Yorkshire Moors visitor centre! The local pub serves excellent food, the best pint of Timothy Taylor's Landlord I've ever had and the staff are really nice and pleasant too. What more could you wish for?

A very comfortable cottage in a good, quiet position within easy reach of local pub, Pickering and attractions. Large sitting room, very high quality kitchen appliances and facilities and good supply of spare towels etc.

Cosy cottage in a quiet village. It's within easy reach of the Moors and coast.
