The property

A beautiful, detached stone cottage, set in an elevated position in the delightful village of Glaisdale, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park.

With panoramic views from every window reaching across the Esk Valley, this first-class Glaisdale cottage provides luxurious accommodation for couples or small families wanting to explore this magnificent area, but within a few minutes' drive to the atmospheric seaside town of Whitby, and with the benefit of local bus and train services available within walking distance.

With great attention to detail, this Glaisdale cottage has bespoke wooden window shutters throughout and in the sitting room is the original timber floor and an inviting, cosy woodburner, perfect for a romantic evening.

The kitchen in this Glaisdale cottage is spacious and well-equipped, whilst the two pretty bedrooms are beautifully presented.

Outside this Glaisdale cottage is a small enclosed patio, the perfect spot for an evening glass of wine whilst enjoying the glorious surrounding scenery.

A pleasant stroll brings you to the local shop and inn, whilst walkers are spoilt for choice with the numerous footpaths straight from the door.

This Glaisdale cottage is ideally placed for both the moors and the coast - visit Whitby with its long, sandy beaches, excellent restaurants and famous Abbey, or perhaps take a trip back in time on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway at Grosmont.

A wonderful Glaisdale cottage for an enjoyable, peaceful and luxurious break.

About the location


Whitby 9 miles; Pickering 21 miles.

A peaceful village on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, Glaisdale is set amongst beautiful countryside in the heart of the Esk Valley. The village itself has a post office in the general store, an excellent butcher (famed for his pork pies) and one hotel/pub, with restaurant. Further afield, Whitby and the coast are just 9 miles away whilst the quaint moorland villages of Hutton-le-Hole, Lastingham and Thornton Dale and the market town of Pickering are all within easy touring distance. For something a little quieter, why not take a trip to the less-discover gem of Saltburn by the Sea, a charming, Victorian seaside resort. The terminus of the North York Moors Railway is at nearby Grosmont, inviting you to take a steam railway ride back in history through beautiful moorland scenery.
