    “We cannot express how grateful we were to find not only the most perfect rural retreat which we desperately wanted but to meet the nicest owners who would go out of their way to be helpful, so kind and very thoughtful.”


    It was a superb cottage, located on the edge of Dalby Forest - all of the furnishings were to a high specification, delivered with great taste and attention to detail. Everything was so comfortable and of good quality. It was all the little touches that meant that the owners really wanted you to enjoy their haven and share their beautiful surroundings. Flowers in the cottage from their own garden, herbs growing in containers on the door step, bird books with binoculars and home made cake on our arrival which was gorgeous. You could hear water running down the hills, rustling of wind in the forest trees and birdsong all day long. The wildlife was always present and with the stunning backdrop of the forest and autumnal colours it was just perfection in nature. The cottage had everything you could wish for and I would urge anyone who wants a rural hideaway to consider this property. We will certainly be looking to return at some point in the future for all of the reasons outlined above.

The property

On the outskirts of Langdale End, between Thornton Dale and Scalby, both approx. 10 miles from the cottage.

Boasting captivating views of the nearby Dalby Forest is this idyllic stone-built cottage, Baillie Close.

This North Yorkshire accommodation enjoys a tranquil location and is perfectly suited for a couple seeking to explore the delights of the rolling countryside and the sublime coastline of the stunning North Yorkshire moors, with the popular resort town of Scarborough within striking distance of this base.

After soaking up the surroundings, and admiring the wildlife, be welcomed into this idyllic retreat for rest and relaxation, complete with everything you and your partner could possibly need.

Kick off your muddy walking boots within the porch, which offers comfortable seating for enjoying the peace, tranquility and wildlife watching, should the weather be inclement.

Beyond here is the open-plan living room which enjoys a refreshing colour palette and several charming touches to ensure a wonderful base for you and your partner to return to each evening.

Make the most of the contemporary kitchen area which offers comfortable dining with views and sounds of the forest, as well as boasting all the essential appliances to cater for yourselves during the week-long break.

After dinner relax with a cup of tea or glass of wine, and watch the sunset through the trees, or settle down to watch one of the two smart TVs complete with Netflix for those chilled evenings.

The interior is completed by a well-presented king-size bedroom which houses a smart TV and a well-appointed en-suite, with a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

During a balmy evening, spend a moment or two upon the private patio area, where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining, and as the evening draws to a close, look forward to a spot of stargazing due to the lack of light pollution this superb location features.

A choice of traditional pubs can be found within a 10 mile radius along the local country roads.

To keep you busy whilst staying here, venture slightly further to the coastal town of Scarborough, where you will be delighted to find two glorious beaches, a historic castle and a Japanese-style landscaped park.

For those feeling adventurous, venture to the nearby Dalby Forest, where you will find a magnitude of walks and cycling routes, as well as Go Ape for those adrenaline seekers.

Baillie Close is a tranquil retreat where traffic noise is substituted by the sound of nature and the call of wildlife. This property can be conbined with Ballie Close Studio (Ref: 1020681 ) and together can sleep up to 4 people.
