The property

A charming, stone-built terraced cottage, on the edge of the delightful village of Lealholm, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park. With glorious views over the stunning countryside from every window, this Lealholm cottage has been lovingly restored and furnished throughout, and includes a warm and cosy sitting room with a woodburner set in a stone feature fireplace. There is also a fitted kitchen with dining area, and two comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Outside this Lealholm cottage is an enclosed patio area overlooking the Esk Valley, a lovely spot to enjoy a glass of wine on a balmy summer’s evening. A ten minute walk from this Lealholm cottage takes you into the centre of this very friendly, pretty village, with an excellent pub, tea rooms, village shop and bakery. With the river meandering through and moorland sheep wandering around, it's an idyllic location. There are numerous public footpaths on the doorstep of this Lealholm cottage, whilst the seaside town of Whitby is only 9 miles away. An area with much to explore and visit.

Guest Reviews


    • “Both myself and my girlfriend loved our stay in the cottage. The village of Lealholm is absolutely beautiful. Also the coastal towns of Whitby and Robins Hood Bay are only a short drive away from Lealholm.”

    Mr Smith, Todmorden, August 2014

    • “We had a wonderful week at the cottage with a warm welcome from the owner on arrival. The Cottage is a great base to explore from, we will definitely be returning.”

About the location


Whitby 9 miles; Staithes 10 miles; Runswick Bay 10 miles.

Lealholm is in the centre of the lovely Esk Valley within the North York Moors National Park and just 15 minutes' drive from the magnificent Yorkshire coast. It is a picturesque village which caters well for the visitor with a Post Office, shop, pub and tea rooms/restaurant all on hand. There are wonderful countryside walks in every direction and don’t be surprised to see moorland sheep wandering freely through the village and along the banks of the river! The quaint fishing villages of Staithes and Runswick Bay, the sandy beach of Sandsend and the ancient port of Whitby are all close by.
