    “A real character cottage”
    We spent a great week in this character cottage. The owner was extremely friendly and very helpful. Some great cider and real ale pubs in the vicinity. Highly recommended!

The property

Danby 2 miles.

A pretty, stone and pantiled terraced cottage, in the tranquil hamlet of Houlsyke, two miles from Danby.

Converted from a former barn, this Grade II listed building now makes a lovely Danby holiday cottage with an open plan, traditionally furnished living area with beams, a cosy kitchen, and a spacious double bedroom taking in the beautiful views of the countryside, making this very comfortable Danby holiday cottage ideal for couples or families.

Outside this Danby holiday cottage, a rear patio and delightful, secluded, terraced garden makes for the perfect spot to relax and unwind.

In the heart of the stunning North York Moors, this Danby holiday cottage is two miles from Lealholm and Danby, which provide country inns, village shops, a wonderful bakery and tea rooms.

A short walk from this Danby holiday cottage is the River Esk, famous for salmon fishing, and there are great walking and cycling opportunities, with trails from the doorstep.

Visit the Danby Moors Centre, take a trip back in time on the steam railway at Grosmont, or explore Heartbeat country at Goathland!

The fishing town of Whitby is only a short drive, with its quaint, cobbled streets and sandy beaches.

A charming Danby holiday cottage, making a great base.

About the location


Staithes 10 miles; Whitby 15 miles; Guisborough 10 miles.

The village of Danby nestles in the beautiful and peaceful Esk Valley in the heart of The North York Moors. The village has two pubs (both serving food), a bakery, a tea room and a health food shop. There is also an excellent National Park Visitor Centre at Danby Lodge – an historic building set in 13 acres of riverside pasture, with facilities which include exhibitions, nature trails and tea rooms. Danby also boasts the ruins of a 14th century castle and the only remaining working water mill on the River Esk. The scenic Esk Valley Railway line runs through the village on its way to Whitby. The quaint moorland villages of Hutton-le-Hole and Lastingham, the market town of Pickering, the city of York and the Yorkshire Coast villages of Staithes, Saltburn and Robin Hood’s Bay are all within easy touring distance.
