The property

An imaginatively converted semi-detached stone barn conversion, with spectacular views around the pretty valley of Farndale, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park.

Offering the perfect romantic retreat for couples, this Farndale cottage is ideal for walkers and those who want the peace and grandeur of the surrounding countryside.

Step inside this North Yorkshire cottage to a contemporary open plan living area with a stylish kitchen, sumptuous seating area and a feature gas fire, ideal for cooler evenings.

The super king-size bedroom is set on a mezzanine level, whilst the shower room has a spacious walk-in shower.

With high quality fixtures and fittings throughout, this Farndale cottage will impress the most discerning guest.

The kitchen doors lead onto a small, enclosed flagged patio with exceptional panoramic views of the Yorkshire Moors - a wonderful, elevated spot to relax and unwind with a glass of wine, whilst visitors also have access to a small paddock.

A must is to walk in the Farndale 'Daffodil Dale', renowned for its spectacular display of native narcissi in April, whilst the popular Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk lies close by.

From this Farndale cottage there are many nearby local attractions, including the pretty market towns of Kirkbymoorside, Pickering and Helmsley.

They offer good restaurants, pubs and independent shops, whilst the Ryedale Folk Museum in Hutton-le-Hole is well worth a visit.

A lovely drive takes you to Castleton and the high moors and then onto the seaside town of Whitby.

A superb Farndale cottage for those looking for the peace and tranquillity of Yorkshire.

About the location


Kirkbymoorside 9 miles; Helmsley 13 miles; Pickering 17 miles.

The beautiful valley of Farndale is a patchwork quilt of fields divided by ancient dry stone walls and narrow winding lanes. It is most famous for its spectacular display of daffodils, once reputed to have been planted by the monks of the Rievaulx Abbey. The attractive market towns of Kirkbymoorside and Pickering, and the picturesque villages of Hutton-le-Hole and Lastingham are all within easy reach and are well worth the visit. Walkers are also well provided for with the magnificent scenery and countryside of the surrounding National Park – a great location at any time of the year.

Note: No infants or children under 16 years old.
Note - This owner will accept a weeks Christmas booking from Friday 20th December 2019.
