    Clean, spacious, well positioned and generally well equipped cottage. Only 2 of us in a 4 bedroom cottage so masses of room! (The bed in the attic room best left to an adventurous and agile teenager as step steps to access.) Easy short walk into Goathland or even closer to nearest view of NYMR at Darnholme - but far enough away from 'tourists' to be quiet (- centre of Goathland can be busy at times).

    Clean, spacious, well positioned and generally well equipped cottage. Only 2 of us in a 4 bedroom cottage so masses of room! (The bed in the attic room best left to an adventurous and agile teenager as step steps to access.) Easy short walk into Goathland or even closer to nearest view of NYMR at Darnholme - but far enough away from 'tourists' to be quiet (- centre of Goathland can be busy at times). Easy access to short or long country walks from the door including nearby waterfalls and the 'rail trail' to Grosmont. The downsides? Vehicle access into the large garden parking area is VERY tight if you have a medium to large car - narrow gated lane and narrow cottage gate. Not really anywhere to turn round. I drove by the cottage gate and reversed into the garden - then had to shuffle about 5 times to turn as I came out. Should not be a problem with a smaller car (than our Skoda Octavia). Could park in the road nearby (outside the gated lane) if this is a problem. Generally spacious kitchen diner was actually rather cramped near the cooker. Kitchen sink taps could do with new washers. Oven and grill controls need adjusting / replacing as they do not line up properly. Some of the kitchen cupboards (clean but) a little bit musty - need airing. Overall a good holiday and comfortable cottage.

The property

A lovely semi-detached Edwardian property, quietly tucked away in the pretty moorland village of Goathland.

Furnished and decorated in a traditional style, this Goathland cottage has a lovely homely feel, which would appeal to families and friends wishing to discover the spectacular countryside of the North York Moors, but within a few minutes' drive of the historic port of Whitby.

This characterful cottage in Goathland features a warm and cosy sitting room and a charming dining room with a built in dresser and additional comfy seating.

The well-equipped kitchen overlooks the garden and open fields, whilst original stairs lead up from the spacious hall to four comfortable bedrooms.

Outside this Goathland cottage, a small enclosed garden and patio provide a perfect spot to sit and enjoy a morning cup of coffee in the sunshine, before heading off for a day's activities.

A pleasant stroll brings you into the centre of this delightful village, where sheep are free to roam the country lanes and the wide, green verges.

The local inns serve good ales and excellent food, whilst the village store caters for everyday needs.

With the addition of a couple of quaint tea rooms to indulge in, this Goathland cottage is the perfect place to stay!

With wonderful walking opportunities from the door, this area is a walker's paradise, whilst for steam lovers, the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway runs through the village.

Drive through the stunning scenery of these heather clad moors to the bustling town of Whitby, with its famous Abbey, cobbled, narrow streets and long sandy beaches, or explore the dramatic coastline with its pretty villages such as Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay.

This Goathland cottage provides a good base in a superb location.

About the location

GOATHLAND

Whitby 9 miles.

The idyllic village of Goathland is set on the north eastern edge of the North York Moors National Park. It is surrounded by the rugged open moorlands which provide excellent walking country and on which sheep graze freely. The village has been popularised by the television programme Heartbeat. At the bottom of the village lies the station for the famous North York Moors Steam Railway. Here you can catch a train to Whitby or Pickering and relax as the train winds its way through the moors. Goathland is within easy reach of the East Coast towns of Whitby, Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay and Scarborough, making it a great holiday base.
