  • “Absolutely beautiful little cottage in Hutton Buscel, the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of every day life.”

    Cottage is well appointed and comfortable. Bed is very comfortable and the dormer window is brilliant for star gazing. Local pub ( the old forge Inn) is approx a mile away. Absolutely stunning scenery and perfect for walking.

Absolutely stunning scenery and perfect for walking. Only possible downside is the steepness of the stairs to the bathroom/bedroom. Other than that Perfect

The property

The Potting Shed is a gorgeous hidden gem, perched at the foot of the North York Moors National Park, nestled in the idyllic village of Hutton Buscel.

Perfectly situated for couples, this snug barn conversion rests on a quiet country lane, opposite fellow cottages.

Upon entering the property, be wowed by the stunning high ceilings which accentuate the Velux windows and characterful oak beams, noticing the quirky stone wall where a TV sits in a unique recess.

Open a bottle of wine and relax on the sofa to enjoy a cosy date night, whilst you're kept warm by the electric fire.

As the evening draws to a close, travel up the steep wooden stairs and up to a snug mezzanine area overlooking the rest of the property, getting ready for bed in the en-suite shower room.

Hop into the inviting double bed and turn off the lights as you look up to the Velux skylight window for an evening of stargazing, a perfect way to end your day.

Soak in your surroundings as you meander along the quiet country lane just outside the property, heading over to the local shop in East Ayton to some ingredients for an evening meal, before stopping off at one of the nearby pubs to enjoy a refreshing pint on a summer's afternoon.

The area is encompassed by outstanding countryside and a peaceful ambiance, pick between a plethora of leisurely rambles alongside calm fields, or challenging hikes deep within the amazing Dalby Forest.

Pack your beach bag and enjoy a fantastic day at Scarborough seaside resort, home to classic amusements, sandy beaches, colourful attractions, and delicious dining choices for your culinary needs, including traditional fish and chips on the beachfront, as well as the outstanding Stephen Joseph Theatre and the historic Scarborough Castle to explore.

Delight in a day out at one of the nearby market towns, discover an ancient steam railway at Pickering, find artisan food producers at the regular market stalls in Malton anf treat yourself to an afternoon tea at Helmsley.

There is plenty to find at the North York Moors National Park, perfect for nature enthusiasts, outdoor activities and an incredible choice of walking, cycling, and horse riding trails.

The small, picturesque village of Hutton Buscel lies five miles south west of Scarborough, quietly situated on a hillside, with glorious views over open countryside. Pretty stone cottages and houses line the main street from end to end in this ancient, well kept village. The original 12th century church was altered in later periods and has been fully restored, and also has links to the famous Whitby Abbey. Close to the Downe Arms, Country pub and restaurant and wedding venue in Wykeham Village. East Ayton lies just a mile below the village and has a good local shop, fish and chip restaurant and country pub. The stunning scenery in and around the Forge Valley is ideal for walkers, with many woodland and open countryside tracks, whilst the popular seaside town of Scarborough is only a few minutes' drive. With easy access to the market towns of Pickering, Malton and Helmsley and numerous attractions nearby, Hutton Buscel makes a perfect place to stay.
