About the location


Pickering 2 miles; Scarborough 16 miles; York 25 miles.

The beautiful village of Thornton-le-Dale lies just two miles to the east of Pickering within The North York Moors National Park. Much of its charm comes from its complicated shape - a fascinating jumble of streams and paths and pretty houses with an attractive village green which still has its wooden stocks and a market cross. The village offers a selection of shops, pubs and tea rooms. The nearby market town of Pickering offers a good range of amenities and the famous North York Moors Steam Railway. There are broad fields above and below the village and views to the south across the Vale of Pickering, whilst to the north is the Forestry Commission's Dalby Forest, with several excellent nature trails to be enjoyed. Further afield, but within driving distance, are the East Coast and The City of York.

A really cosy cottage, tastefully renovated. Handy for shops and village pond. Kids enjoyed feeding the ducks and trying to catch things in the stream nearby with their fishing nets. The owners were very friendly, lovely cake, bread and flowers on arrival Handy for Dalby Forest and steam train at Pickering. A beautiful area and we will definitely come back.

Ms White, York, May 2013

The first thing I check in a cottage is cleanliness, in particular the crockery. I am pleased to say it was spotless as was the whole cottage, a credit to the owners. The beds were very comfortable. Although it was situated on the main road and we live in a quiet village we were not once disturbed by noisy traffic, it all seemed to stop at night. It is a lovely village with shop, ice cream parlour, and cafe all very handy. The car museum and duck pond and interesting shops added to the pleasant stay. There are many interesting places to visit nearby.
