The property

A delightful, semi-detached, stone barn conversion situated on the edge of Ebberston village, between Pickering and Scarborough.

One of five Ebberston cottages on the site, clustered around a secluded gravelled courtyard, this spacious Ebberston cottage has been lovingly renovated to a high standard, with an open plan living area, open fire and tiled floors, and pretty, spacious bedrooms.

The excellent facilities at this Ebberston cottage include a heated indoor swimming pool and shared games room.

Outside this Ebberston cottage, the pretty Victorian walled garden is ideal to relax and enjoy a glass of wine, whilst beyond it, one acre of woodland, with a pond and stream, is waiting to be explored.

Visit picturesque Pickering and Helmsley, spend a day at the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Whitby, or for the more energetic, Dalby Forest offers biking and walking.

A lovely Ebberston cottage in an outstanding area.
