    A lovely welcome basket, milk and orange juice in the fridge and a vase of cut flowers/greenery from the garden. Cleanliness of the whole property, including all utensils/ crockery and furnishings was truly outstanding . The view from the cottage was amazing ( even binoculars provided by the hosts Fiona and Tim) and was a perfect location for exploring the local and wider area. Will definitely be returning.

  • "Everything about beautiful Shippon was exactly as described."

    It was private and very comfortable. We were welcomed with supplies of tea and coffee and several extras too, like soap in the kitchen and bathroom and tablets for the dishwasher. There were lashings of hot water, plenty of fluffy towels, not to mention the comfy king size bed. Everything was spotlessly clean. There was an iron, ironing board and handy clothes airer too. The view was wonderful which we enjoyed whilst sitting out on the patio. Fiona was a lovely attentive host and even gave us a change of linen and towels during our two week stay - so thoughtful and much appreciated. Staying at Shippon made our holiday - we’d definitely come again!

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of Beadlam is this characterful, single-storey cottage, Shippon.

With gorgeous countryside views, open-plan layout and an excellent location for touring, the cottage welcomes two guests for a romantic holiday or solo travellers hoping to explore the beauty of North Yorkshire.

Step inside and be immediately wowed by the high ceilings, exposed brickwork, and wooden beams of Shippon, as well as the bonus of underfloor heating to warm tired feet.

A light-filled, open-plan living space offers high-quality amenities to prepare your favourite meals, including an electric double oven, hob, and fridge, along with a dishwasher for stress-free clean ups.

Tuck into your home-cooked meal and plan your holiday adventures, before settling into the sofa in front of the TV or with a good book in hand; a large patio door frames the far-reaching rural views to aid relaxation!

Why not step outside on summer evenings and admire the sunset with a glass of wine in hand?

As night falls, retire to the large bedroom with a king-size bed and convenient en-suite shower room, which is also a great place to kick-start your day with a hot and refreshing shower.

The village of Nawton Beadlam hosts The Rose & Crown pub, Nawton Green Fisheries for takeaway fish and chips, and Indian restaurant, and Beadlam Grange Farmshop and Tea Room to pick up the essentials.

You'll be in a prime spot for exploring North York Moors National Park with its wooded river valleys, historic ruins, and picturesque villages; start in Helmsley, just a short drive west, home to Helmsley Castle ruins with walled gardens for picnics.

Helmsley Open Air Swimming Pool, and the Cleveland Way walking trail starts here, a must for spectacular scenery.

The market town of Pickering rests near North Riding Forest Park for varied hiking and cycling trails, but if that's not your thing, admire the views from Pickering Castle or hop on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, a lovely way to relax and watch the dramatic landscapes unfold from your window.

If you're looking for more local culture and heritage, the gorgeous city of York is within easy reach to wander the City Walls.

Visit the majestic York Minster, shop for curiosities along The Shambles or the bustling market, and visit Museum Gardens to sit in the sunshine among the medieval Abbey ruins.

There's plenty to do and see with a stay at Shippon!
