A very attractive, stone cottage, attached to the owner’s property, in a beautiful, tranquil, hillside setting, on the edge of Castleton in the heart of the North York Moors.

This Castleton cottage, retaining glimpses of exposed stone walls, has been converted into the perfect base for small families and groups of friends, wishing to explore the spectacular surrounding countryside and the dramatic Heritage Coastline.

This spacious Castleton cottage provides wonderful, comfortable accommodation, featuring two generous bedrooms, including a king-size double room.

There is also a bathroom where you can enjoy a relaxing soak after a day on your feet exploring and a ground floor shower room.

The well-equipped kitchen and dining area provide a wonderful place to gather and enjoy family meals, while you plan tomorrow’s escapades.

Retire to the cosy sitting room, boasting a warming open fire, and unwind with a film or relax in the large conservatory, overlooking the enchanting, tranquil garden.

Take your tennis rackets and enjoy a game of tennis on the nearby court, arrangeable with the owners.

The immediate area is a walker’s paradise, boasting a network of public footpaths and quiet rural roads.

The traditional moorland village of Castleton offers a range of excellent amenities, with a selection of quaint tea rooms, two welcoming pubs, and friendly local shops.

A short drive from this Castleton cottage brings you to the seaside town of Saltburn, with its sandy beaches, a long pier and a cliffside lift.

Enjoy a walk through pretty gardens from the seafront to the town centre, where there are some excellent restaurants to sample and lots of independent shops and galleries to peruse.
