    “The cottage was lovely we really enjoyed our week away.”

    The area is great for walking and places to visit. We were so lucky with the weather not a drip in sight. Everyone was friendly and we’d happily return.

The property

Danby 0.7 miles.

Nestled amidst the beauty of the North York Moors National Park is this traditional stone-built terraced house, 7 Lilac Terrace in the small hamlet of Ainthorpe near Danby.

This quaint cottage has been designed to offer a base for a small family to explore the wonders of the National Park or venture further afield to the coastline, where you can spend days discovering delights such as Whitby.

After a long walk upon the countryside setting, be welcomed into the sitting room, which exudes a welcoming aura, with the exposed beams framing the plush furnishings and woodburning stove.

Light up the fire and settle down for the evening upon the contemporary sofa, with a Smart TV for entertainment.

Move to the rear of the property to find a well-equipped kitchen, where a range of quality appliances are awaiting the chef of the group to rustle up some tasty meals, including a dishwasher and a washing machine to offer a helping hand for the duration of your stay.

The kitchen also comes with a quirky breakfast bar, a great spot to chat whilst preparing food or an alternative spot for tucking into breakfast.

Enjoy more formal moments upon the dining table within the sitting room, perfect for toasting to a wonderful holiday to Yorkshire or pulling open the map and planning the following day’s adventure.

Look forward to retiring for the evening within one of the two bedrooms, with the master bedroom boasting a king-size double bed and an en-suite shower, whilst the snug twin comes with exposed beams and use of the spacious family bathroom.

If you can tear yourself away from this quaint bolthole, the Fox & Hounds Inn, a traditional pub with superb views and a wonderful dining menu to sample is just a stone's throw away.

Alternatively, venture to the nearby village of Castleton, where you will find a range of amenities including two pubs, both serving great food, a village shop, a convenience store, a Post Office, tearooms and a small art gallery.

Within the village, you will find a train station, providing easy access to the historical town of Whitby, promising a memorable day out for all.

The town is steeped in history, awaiting for you to discover by visiting Captain Cook Memorial Museum or climb the famous 199 steps to the ruins of Whitby Abbey and soaking up the views.

Afterwards, meander the winding streets, home to a plethora of boutique shops, Yorkshire pubs and inns, tearooms and sandwich bars, as well as a sandy beach for glorious days lazing on the sands.

Keen walkers will be delighted by the magnitude of paths upon the National Park, including the Esk Valley Walk, which begins at Castletown and highlights include views from Danby Beacon and catching a glimpse of the leaping salmon on the river.

Alternatively, head to the coast and spend time at the coastal resorts of Staithes, Robin Hood's Bay and Sandsend, or travel further afield for a day out in the city of York.

7 Lilac Terrace is the perfect base for that relaxing break to Yorkshire that you have been seeking.
