  • “A wonderfully comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting.”

    It was lovely to be surrounded by the animals with their quirky personalities

    It was lovely to be surrounded by the animals with their quirky personalities Walks and excellent cycling straight from the cottage Alan and Helen were very welcoming and has great suggestions for cycling trails and places to eat The cottage was clean and had everything you required Weather ranged from cold to boiling hot, so got to use all facilities from bbq to indoor log burner For 2 doctors needing some downtime it was just what we needed and I would thoroughly recommend it

The property

Thornton Dale 12 miles.

Nestled at the head of a beautiful valley in the North York Moors National Park bordering both Dalby Forest and National Trust Moorland.

This is a great place for anyone just wanting to relax and let the world disappear for a few days.

Alternatively use it as a base for walking, biking or touring the National Park and coastline.

It is mountain bike heaven with the world class cycle routes within Dalby Forest on the doorstep and easy access to Newtondale for those wanting Enduro terrain.

Walkers have miles of open countryside and forest to explore including The Bridestones, Hole of Horcum and Blakey Topping.

There are beautiful surroundings for those wishing to just relax on site by the stream and woodland or just walk through the gate onto open moorland.

This 5-star accommodation is in a newly converted barn sitting in a small orchard with panoramic views down the valley.

The private rear patio enjoys beautiful sunsets and is an ideal place for an evening BBQ or dip in the hot tub and stargazing.

The contemporary open-plan interior has exposed feature stonework, beams and oak floor.

The log-burner has a plentiful supply of wood to enjoy on any cooler evenings.

The fully fitted kitchen and large shower room are to a high specification.

There is smart TV with Netflix and wi-fi for entertainment or just enjoy a good book or a board game.

There is plenty to do on site to relax including photography and painting or you could potentially help the owners with their work on the smallholding and feed the array of friendly animals including donkeys, pony, guinea fowl, ducks, hens and sheep.

Country pubs, some with great food are within half an hour’s ride.

This is a remote area so the owners do have a ready stock of things you may need incl.

BBQ packs and Farm Shop prepared meals.

Thornton Dale is a beautiful village with chocolate box cottages and stream.

It has plenty of teashops, gift shop, ice cream parlour, shopping and even a model village.

Pickering is the home of the famous NYM Railway between Pickering and Whitby travelling through Newtondale, Yorkshires own grand canyon, and calling at Goathland home of Heartbeat.

The market town of Helmsley and seaside towns of Scarborough and Whitby are not too far away or perhaps try one of our favourites including Robin Hoods Bay, Sandsend or Rievaulx Abbey, but once you are at Thompson Rigg, why would you want to leave!
