The Old Parish Rooms

Situated in the pretty village of Castleton, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, this attractive pair of properties is the result of the conversion of the Old Parish Rooms. Built of sandstone and red brick, these Castleton cottages have been thoughtfully modernised to a high standard and provide excellent accommodation for guests wanting to explore the surrounding stunning scenery, yet are within easy reach of Whitby and the east coast. Light and airy throughout, both these Castleton cottages have spacious open plan living areas, with the luxury of underfloor heating and beautiful travertine tiled floors. With a modern, well-equipped kitchen and dining area and two cheerful bedrooms, these Castleton cottages provide very comfortable holiday homes, tastefully furnished and decorated. Outside, each Castleton cottage has a small, gravelled courtyard, an ideal spot to sit with an evening drink and watch the sun going down over the hills. Within a short stroll are the excellent village amenities, including local inns serving fine ales and good food, a Co-op, a bank and quaint tea rooms. With a network of public footpaths and bridleways from the village, this area is a haven for walkers, cyclists and horse riders, whilst a short drive brings you to the historic seaside port of Whitby, with its long sandy beaches, cobbled market place and famous abbey. The area is also rich in industrial and archaeological sites from its mining history, with Bronze Age relics also prolific. Why not visit the Danby Moors Centre, just two miles away, or discover the delights of the picturesque coastal villages of Runswick Bay and Staithes? The nearby market town of Guisborough is well worth visiting, with its individual shops and twice weekly market days. With such diversity in this spectacular area, these Castleton cottages provide an excellent base for a very enjoyable holiday.
