  • "Perhaps I missed a couple of details in the property writeup, but the accommodation is part of the owners bungalow & there is no oven for cooking, so could be more of a problem for some than it was for us."

    But it was very clean, comfortable and quiet and would stay there again.

The property

Castleton 1.7 miles.

Resting on a peaceful chicken farm in the village of Ainthorpe, North Yorkshire is Rooster Cottage, a well-presented, single-storey bungalow surrounded by picturesque countryside.

Hosting one bedroom and a delightful decked area perfect for enjoying the warmer months on, this dwelling is ideal for a couple or solo traveller looking for a tranquil escape.

Arriving at the property, take the steps up to decking and step directly into the open-plan living space where you will find a TV and a plush sofa you can look forward to snuggling up on.

From here, whip up tasty meals for your loved one in the kitchen; this includes a hob, as well as all the necessary smaller appliances to assist with your self-catering requirements.

Sit down at the dining table to eat and discuss the day's events, before retiring to the bedroom to rest your head.

The bedroom hosts a gorgeous double bed, lovingly crafted from wood and adding to the charm of the property; here you will also find storage for your belongings and a large and stylish mirror so you can get ready in style.

Guests will also benefit from a bathroom with both a bath and a walk-in shower along with a basin and WC so you can freshen up between activities.

Outside, take advantage of the decked area where you can kick back on the sun lounger, or eat your meals al fresco on the sun lounger while the stream trickles next to you.

Treat yourself to a meal out in one of the local pubs such as The Fox & Hounds Inn, which is set in a traditional 16th century inn.

Conveniently located, the bungalow is encompassed by countryside while being within easy reach of the pretty seaside towns of Whitby, Scarborough, and further down the coast, Filey, where you can spend a day at the beach, discovering a wealth of historical attractions such as the famous Whitby Abbey.

The area is also a hot spot for walkers and cyclists due to the picture-perfect landscapes and varying terrains making for a fun day out for all ages and abilities.

A scenic drive will take you to Mallyan Spout Waterfall perfect for a relaxing walk while admiring the cascading waters.

If you prefer to soak up some history while on your travels, take a trip north to the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum and the Guisborough Museum, or perhaps head south and explore the Museum of Victorian Science for a fascinating insight into the workings of historic machinery.

For a relaxing retreat in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, choose Rooster Cottage.
