Tucked away in the countryside of the North York Moors is this characterful, semi-detached house, 42 High Street.

Boasting original stonework throughout and resting within the North York Moors National Park and a short distance from the North Yorkshire coastline, 42 High Street is a delightful setting for your next staycation.

After leaving your car, take in your quaint surroundings, before making your way inside the charming dwelling.

The sitting room has been designed with relaxation in mind, with ample seating available for all the family, where you can cosy up in front of the toasty woodburning stove, as you play a board game with your loved ones or watch a movie on the TV.

Move through the house to find a pleasant kitchen with white units, hosting a range of integrated appliances that will please any budding chef, including a dishwasher and an electric cooker.

When dinner is ready, savour it in the dining room with a woodburning stove warming the space, providing the perfect spot for many happy, family gatherings.

After tucking into dinner, you can find the ground-floor cloakroom, where you can throw any muddy clothing into the washing machine, before wandering upstairs to find two well-presented doubles, one boasting floral accents and an en-suite cloakroom, and the other enjoying stylish, purple touches.

The first floor also hosts a fantastic bathroom, where you can indulge in a soak in the freestanding bath or relish a refreshing rinse in the rainfall shower; there is an additional shower room nearby, for added convenience.

Continue to the second floor, where a twin and single await, both showcasing painted stone walls and vaulted ceilings.

On sunny days, get together on the patio and enjoy an alfresco meal as you plan the days ahead.

Spend the day in Pickering, where the ruins of the once-glorious Pickering Castle, the fascinating Beck Isle Museum and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway await.
