    On arrival in Danby the property is not clearly signed. We were met by Polly at the property who ensured the keysafe gave us access. The welcome pack and flowers are a nice touch. The upstairs bedroom & bathroom are spacious, comfortable and clean. The kitchen/lounge is dated and although has plenty of equipment clearly the units themselves need replacing and feel sticky, the lack of space creates problems with access to the low oven, cutlery and cupboards,wall lighting is poor and clearly overhead led lights would solve the problem. The 2 seater settee had dog hair underneath the cushions and around the edges. The hall area is dark and improvement with led lighting and white doors/frames would solve the problems.The outside seating area grass had been strimmed but clearly needs cutting with a mower and the grass removed. Despite these problems we enjoyed our stay and the area is beautiful, with a little investment and more attention to cleaning this property could easily be transformed, I would enjoy getting it sorted!

About the property

Ainthorpe 0.5 miles.

Nestled within the picturesque North York Moors National Park with plenty of walking and trail paths to enjoy, and set on the outskirts of Danby, North Yorkshire is this charming cottage, Parsonage Cottage.

Set over two floors and sleeping up to four guests, Parsonage Cottage is a homely and pet-friendly setting with wonderful country views, perfect for a couple’s getaway to the countryside where you can escape the stresses of everyday life.

Arriving at the property, you will find convenient off-road parking where you and your guests can unload your bags and take in the fresh country air and expansive surrounding countryside.

Step into the rustic open-plan living space with compact kitchen, dining area and sitting area, here you can prepare delicious treats for your guests to enjoy before retiring to the sofa with a glass of wine and toasting to a wonderful holiday.

When your eyes grow heavy, you have the option to retire to one of two rooms, the first being a spacious twin with zip/link on the ground floor, ideal for those with limited mobility.

Completing the ground floor is the contemporary shower-room, where you can enjoy freshening up before a day of exploring the moors.

Climb the stairs where you will discover the second bedroom, a generous double with Velux windows, allowing the natural light to flow into the room.

Explore your local surroundings and venture into the local village, where if you don’t feel like spending an evening in the kitchen, you can treat your guests to a bite at The Fox and Hounds or The Duke of Wellington Inn, both of which serve fresh produce and local ales.

Be sure to visit The National Parks Visitor Centre, which guarantees a great day out for all the family, with an outdoor adventure play area and mud kitchen for the children, glorious woodland and riverside walks, as well as interactive exhibits inside and the ‘Inspired by…’ gallery which alternates its exhibits and the delightful Victorian seaside town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea; here, you can purchase delicious snacks along the famous 600ft pier, soak up the sun on an award-winning beach, or enjoy impressive views on a journey from the town to the beach with a ride on the water-balanced cliff lift, the oldest in Britain.

Also take a trip to the seaside town of Whitby which is a great day out with plenty of things to do and excellent fish and chips to round off your day.

For walkers, the Black Ash Path is a fantastic hiking area, as well as the Saltburn Gill Nature Reserve, where you can enjoy secluded walks with your canine companion or try and spot the local wildlife.

Enjoy a refreshing break with your loved ones in the homely Parsonage Cottage, and do not miss the chance to stay within this glorious National Park.
