A delightful stone-built semi-detached cottage, on the edge of the small village of Appleton-le-Moors, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park.

Surrounded by stunning scenery, this idyllic location is perfect for walking, cycling and touring in this beautiful area of Yorkshire.

Inside this traditional cottage, there is a cosy ambiance with character beams in the sitting room and a tiled floor in the kitchen.

Comfortably furnished, there are two pleasant bedrooms on the first floor whilst the bathroom is situated on the ground floor.

Outside, there is a generous rear lawned garden with mature shrubs and trees, a lovely sheltered spot to sit and relax.

Set in the midst of the Howardian Hills, there is a wonderful network of footpaths and trails to enjoy, a true walker's paradise.

Leave the car behind, don your walking boots and embrace the full benefits that the countryside has to offer.

A two minute walk brings you to the local pub, while the historic market town of Kirkbymoorside is just three miles away.

This popular town offers many independent shops, small cafes and a bustling market day held along the cobbled main street.
