    “This cottage was superb in all aspects including all facilities, the comfort and homeliness , where it is situated and how clean it was.”

    There was a lot of useful information in the home guide and also the local guide folder. Also a very nice touch with the provision of a delicious Lemon Drizzle cake on our arrival. ...

    There was a lot of useful information in the home guide and also the local guide folder. Also a very nice touch with the provision of a delicious Lemon Drizzle cake on our arrival. The area is very quiet but very beautiful particularly if you like walking. The village has a pub and a coffee / breakfast hall and a very useful co-op store who supply most things you need for your stay. There is also a Bakery which sells very nice pastries etc. We would certainly stay at this property again, no hesitation.

The property

Settled in the quaint village of Castleton in the heart of the North York Moors, is this delightful stone cottage, 6 Church Street.

Perfect for a group of friends seeking a cycling trip, or a family who adore the outdoors, this homely setting makes a wonderful retreat to return to after a day of adventures in North Yorkshire.

Located in the centre of the village, you can stroll in from a trip to the shops and be welcomed back into the handy boot room, hang up your coat and take off your boots here before stepping into the kitchen/diner.

This spacious and open room presents a lovely space, pop the kettle on and make a round of tea before sitting at the dining table and planning the coming days' activities and events.

Enjoy cooking up a feast in the kitchen, well-equipped with a host of appliances including a gas range cooker and hob, perfect for some home-cooking.

Find a snug spot in the living room, with an electric stove-effect fire adding to the cottage style, you can choose from either the two or three seat sofas, offering a plush spot to relax on when watching a film together on the TV.

Completing the ground floor is the convenience utility which has a washing machine, and a cloakroom.

Be led out into the enclosed garden with some drinks and snacks on a mild evening and sit at the raised terrace, taking in the views of the area, with ample storage space in this private area to store your bikes.

Head upstairs to get some rest in one of the bedrooms, with the master bedroom enjoying a lovely floral style and an en-suite bathroom, as well as a built-in wardrobe, you will feel right at home.

There is a single bedroom on this floor, along with another double with a TV, as well as a spacious bathroom with bath and shower over.

Up a further flight of stairs, discover the second-floor single bedroom, with beautiful skylights in the sloping ceilings, it's a tranquil space to wake up in.

Ramblers can delight in a challenging but worthy walk up Beacon Hill, once serving as a radar station in World War II, and experience stunning views all around with the sea to the north and the moors to the south, before continuing to the Scaling Reservoir, for beautiful waterside scenery.

You can explore some of the 37-mile route that runs along the River Esk, one of the most beautiful valleys in England, head from Castleton up to Danby Dale, and into Westerdale for a lovely outing.

Cycling is popular in this area too, with the Esk Valley Cycleway offering a safe and scenic ride down to Whitby and the coast.

About the location


Guisborough 9 miles; Pickering 19 miles; Whitby 18 miles.

The picturesque village of Castleton nestles in the beautiful Esk Valley, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park. Surrounded by stunning scenery, this bustling village offers superb amenities including two pubs, both serving great food, a village shop, a convenience store, a Post Office, tea rooms and a small art gallery. There is a railway station serving the Esk Valley and Whitby, which also links with the steam line to the attractive market town of Pickering. The Camphill Village Trust community of Botton is nearby, with its craft workshops and shops selling home produced food, craft items and books. The historic city of York is just over an hour away, and the coastal towns and villages of Whitby, Staithes, Robin Hood's Bay and Sandsend with its lovely beach, are within easy driving distance, and well worth a visit.
