The property

Tucked away close to Pickering in North Yorkshire, is this delightful one-bedroom cottage, Little Rigg Cottage.

Enjoying a superb property with a stylish open-plan layout, and just a stone’s throw away from the North York Moors National Park, Little Rigg Cottage makes for a fabulous dwelling for a couple who are looking to explore North Yorkshire.

Park up in one of two private car parking spaces, before unloading your bags and stepping into your new home-from-home.

Be welcomed into the charming open-plan living space, where you can look forward to rustling up delicious meals for your loved one in the well-equipped kitchen, utilising the electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge.

Settle down to tuck-in to a romantic meal for two, or if the weather is nice, make dinner an alfresco affair and dine out in your private garden as you make the most of the day’s sunshine.

As the evening cools, add a log to the woodburning stove and snuggle up on the plush sofa in front of your favourite film.

Wash away the day with a revitalising shower, before climbing the stairs to the beautifully-presented mezzanine double bedroom to catch your rest.

Outdoor enthusiasts will have found their haven in Little Rigg Cottage, with a plethora of woodland walks and countryside trails readily available to explore, including the National Trust hiking area of Bridestones Crosscliff & Blakey Topping.

For those who are looking to see the sights but don’t fancy hiking, the heritage North Yorkshire Moors can be found a short distance away and provides scenic 18-mile rides through the expansive North York Moors National Park aboard a vintage steam train.

Take the short drive over to Pickering, where you will find the fascinating 13th-century Pickering Castle, which features a chapel offering art and activities, as well as impressive views across the town.

For those budding historians who can’t get enough, there is also the Beck Isle Museum where you can delve into the local history and explore splendid reconstructions of Victorian shops and businesses.

For peaceful picnics and leisurely strolls, Pickering offers two picturesque parks, Pickering Millenium Wood and Pickering Community Park, where you can relax and watch the world go by.

Venture into the National Park where you will find the fun-filled Go Ape Dalby to enjoy the delights of Segways and Treetop Adventures, whilst the Forge Valley Woods National Nature Reserve has an abundance of local wildlife, the superb Byland Abbey and the National Trust site of Rievaulx Terrace.

For an unforgettable stay on the edge of the North York Moors, look no further than Little Rigg Cottages.
