  • “The Henhouse is an ideal location for exploring the North York Moors.”

    A really comfortable and welcoming holiday home which we were sad to leave. The owner, who lives next door, is lovely and very helpful. We would whole heartedly recommend The Henhouse.

The property

This stone bungalow lies in the lovely village of Gillamoor, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, with countryside views to the rear and a charming village church located to the front.

Only a short way from the coast and Hutton-le-Hole, this cottage is a perfect chance for couples or families to get away from it all, and provides friends with an excuse to explore the local area and beyond.

Inside Henhouse Cottage, discover the open-plan living area, a collection of comfy seating surrounds a woodburning stove, with a dining table tucked into the corner of the room; your own little place to choose one of the books on offer, and simply unwind.

Besides the original stone features and characterful accessories, the layout is tied together with a stylish floor rug.

Once you have relaxed amidst it all, make your way towards the two bedrooms; the first is presented as a king-size double, whilst the second features a zip/link option should you wish to make use of this.

High ceilings and exposed beams wrap around the interior, finished with a delightful en-suite and a wet room, to cater for all guests.

When the sun is shining, why not wander outside through the beautiful French doors for some peace and quiet on the outdoor furniture, an enclosed garden with a lawned area awaits, backed by open countryside views.

For a taste of the village, head out to The Royal Oak Inn only a short stroll away, Gillamoor and its near neighbour Fadmoor are built on the flat top of one of the tabular hills.

As you drive north across the middle of the hill, steep valleys are just out of sight on each side.

The nearby village of Hutton-Le-Hole has a complex of craft shops, workshops, tea rooms and gift shops to visit, or the attractive old market town of Kirkbymoorside lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, in between the towns of Helmsley and Pickering; a charming place with a slightly 'old fashioned feel'.

Both the City of York and the Yorkshire Coast rest at easy distance.

A getaway not to be missed.

About the location


Kirkbymoorside 2.7 miles; Pickering 11 miles; York 28 miles

The attractive, stone-built village of Gillamoor rests approximately three miles north of Kirkbymoorside on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. Surrounded by gentle countryside and spectacular vistas to the south across the Yorkshire Wolds, this quaint village nestles on the flat top of one of the tabular hills featuring a fabulous National Trail for walking. Just to the left of the village church is Gillamoor's 'Surprise View'; built right on the edge of a moorland escarpment, dropping sharply for 150 feet to the River Dove and the southern entrance to Farndale. After a long walk through the countryside and looking for a spot to relax, head into The Royal Oak Inn which is a Grade II listed building and has been part of the village community since the mid-seventeenth century, offering delicious drinks and excellent cuisine cooked to order. Nearby the beautiful market town of Kirkbymoorside lies in between the towns of Helmsley and Pickering boasting a slightly 'old fashioned feel' with its many charming shops, delightful tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. There is an 18 hole golf course positioned on the outskirts of the town and Pickering is home to the North York Moors Steam Railway - a delight to anyone visiting the area, especially those train fanatics out there. Gillamoor offers a delightful stay to anyone seeking a quiet spot to enjoy the natural beauty of the North Yorkshire countryside whilst the vibrant city of York, steeped with history, is within easy driving distance.
