    “We wanted a quiet, cosy and charming place for Christmas and we weren't disappointed.”

    We were made very welcome and the cottage easily accommodated our three families in comfort. There's a beautiful log burner in the main living room but to be honest you could just live with the central heating which was more than adequate for the Cottage. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom had amble hot water for much needed showers after a brisk walk in the country.

    We were made very welcome and the cottage easily accommodated our three families in comfort. There's a beautiful log burner in the main living room but to be honest you could just live with the central heating which was more than adequate for the Cottage. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom had amble hot water for much needed showers after a brisk walk in the country. Egton village is well served by both the National Railways and also the North Yorkshire moors railway. If you fancy a walking holiday just hop on a train then hop off at the next stop and walk back ... perfect. Whitby, Pickering and of course Gothland are within easy reach by car or by train. Egton also has a good choice of village pubs (turn right at the top of the cottage and one pub is 50 meters up the road ... what more can you ask for?). The other pubs, further up the hill and in the village, offer a handsome choice of pub meals to a high standard as well as a good selection of local beers !! Watch out for the owners dog ... once you start making a fuss and start stroking it ... it'll sit there for hours lapping up every bit of affection you can give it. The perfect addition to a country house. The Cottage is well situated geographically and offers an uncluttered escape to country with warmth and comfort. Book soon ... we're planning our next visit already. We couldn't fault it. Enjoy.

The property

An impressive luxury cottage and former Edwardian shooting lodge, situated on the stunning Egton Estate, approximately one hour north of York and six miles from the picturesque fishing town of Whitby.

The Estate sits on the northeast fringe of the North York Moors National Park and offers 6,000 acres of magnificent woodland, pastures and moorland for you to explore. Manor Cottage is a first class choice, whether for a short romantic stay, a week’s summer holiday for a family or an idyllic spot for a group of friends wanting to sample the superb fishing on the Esk river - which is a two minute walk away. Here, elegance and comfort go hand in hand; original features and antique furniture are complemented by cosy woodburning stoves, welcoming décor and quality soft furnishings – the perfect country retreat. With central heating throughout, Manor Cottage has a flagged hallway leading to a good size sitting room with a magnificent stone fireplace and woodburning stove, offering supreme cosines in the cooler months.

There are some lovely decorative touches, such as the original wood panelling, charming writing desk, rustic coffee table and Edwardian-style copper ware, which give the space a pleasing sense of homely informality. From the kitchen window, admire the picturesque courtyard and beautiful grounds of the adjacent Manor House.

Great care has gone into updating this period property and the kitchen retains some lovely original features, such as the deep Belfast sink and quirky ‘pulley maid’ above the woodburning stove – useful for drying and airing clothes after a bracing moorland ramble.

The dining area with farmhouse table seats five people, a lovely spot to enjoy a full English breakfast before heading into the great outdoors. Moving upstairs, to the wide landing, you’ll find three delightful bedrooms.

A tranquil master double with king-size bed, TV and a large wardrobe.

There’s a charming twin with full size single beds overlooking the courtyard and a smart single bedroom with antique brass bed, original decorative fireplace and views of a lovely wooded area to the rear. The spacious house bathroom has a bath with shower over, basin and WC. Outside, the front courtyard area is a pleasant place to enjoy a BBQ in the warmer months.

There’s a table and chairs to sit awhile and enjoy your morning coffee with nothing to disturb but the sound of birdsong.

The location is very special – the lovely village of Egton and neighbouring Egton Bridge are picturesque and boast three inns offering the choice of hearty pub meals or elegant fine dining; there is simply stunning woodland and fabulous walks nearby, with Whitby, and its beautiful beaches, only 10 minutes’ drive. Come and escape to the country at Manor Cottage – you’re sure to have a memorable stay.
